I Really Wanted This Iron To Work
I really wanted this curling iron to work - I ordered the 38 mm. since I needed a replacement for my 1 3/4" curling iron. The first iron that I received seemed to work fine and gave me the wavy curls I was looking for until I turned it off. When I pushed the button to turn the iron off, the button pushed too far in, resulting in not being able to turn the iron on without unplugging it. Once I unplugged it, I could not get the iron back on. I was hoping that it was just a fluke and I called Folica.com and was able to exchange it for another one. The second one I received did not have any issues with the buttons, but the spring was not tight enough, so I had to hold the handle in order to get the clamp to hold my hair. The top portion of my hair is straight and underneath it is wavy. I was able to curl the hair underneath, but the hair on top was too slippery and slipped right through the clamp. The iron also had issues maintaining its' heat. I had it set to 400 F, but whenever I curled my hair the temperature would go down to 376 or so. I ended up returning the second one to Folica.com also. Thinking about getting a Chi instead...
