The low heat setting is too low; the high heat setting is scorching.
Beth
The only problem is that there isn't enough tip to hold on to and I kept burning my fingers no matter how careful I was.

I have always liked the 1 1/2 inch barrel but it is hard to find on a curling brush iron.

Frankly, this is the only 1 1/2" barrel curling brush on the market from what I could find, so it's lucky it's pretty good quality. The barrel heats up to a nice, but not hair-scorching temperature and it heats fairly quickly. The plastic tip stays cool enough to touch, so styling is simple and the bristles are close enough together to make curling even my baby-fine locks possible.

The only major problem is what I consider a design flaw: the joint between the barrel and the handle isn't covered, which means if you're not extremely careful to keep your hair toward the tip of the barrel, it'll get caught--and it's painful. I invariably lose a few valuable strands a day, no matter how I try to prevent it.

This curling iron has been the best hair utility item I have ever owned. I have purchased it over the past 10 years about 4 different times. It's not because the iron goes out or stops working its because I've left it somewhere during travel or for some other reason that wasn't the iron's fault. It is WONDERFUL for straight hair to give lift and volume at the roots and to give soft turn up or down at the tips. Your hair never looks like an iron has touched it - totally natural results. Excellent heating element, never quits, lasts forever, a must have for straight hair. Only 2 downfalls - 1. it's nearly impossible to find at stores and I have to always order it online. 2. it would be nice if there was an auto-shut off timer that turned the iron off after an hour or so of no use. (In case I walk out the door and accidentally leave it on.) Otherwise - this iron is the BEST!

Size Name: 1/2" barrel
I am very pleased with my Helen of Troy mini curling brush! Especially since I haven't been able to find this size in any regular store. I have short and very fine hair and this model works extremely well for me. In fact I ordered several since they are so difficult to find. I hope Helen of Troy will continue to make this model as it suits my needs perfectly.

Thanks!

Marsha

Size Name: 1" barrel Verified Purchase
Can't figure out why there are so few curling brushes out there - they are so much easier to use than the irons, especially for those like me who have stick-straight hair that slips through the irons. That said, the Helen of Troy brush is the only 1-inch barrel I can find out there, save for the ceramic one that is way too hot to handle and burns the hair too easily. The Helen of Troy does the job, just takes a few extra minutes of curling to perform on very straight hair. We need a curling brush that gets a few degrees hotter than the Helen of Troy (and an automatic shut-off!) and a few degrees cooler than the Inifinity by Conair. Are you listening, marketing departments???

I have had so many of these curlers in my lifetime, but not in the last 2 decades. Flat irons give my baby fine shoulder length hair horrible static. I HATE flat irons! Of course my daughter is thrilled when I try another flat iron because she knows she will be getting it for her super thick, coarse hair within a few weeks.
I started looking for a brush iron a year or so ago and could only find the 3/4" irons or the 1+ inch round air brushes. The small iron is just too small for long hair and the air brushes are cumbersome and ineffective.
Desperation led me to the web where I found this one. OMG.. could it be the same iron I had in the 70's? I think so!!! Yay! I read the reviews and bought it, slightly worried about the hair catching in the joint.
Got it yesterday and tried it out.
1. It DOES take a while to get REALLY hot.
2. My hair does get caught in that joint, which is totally unacceptable.
3. The darn thing is EXACTLY what I hoped for!!!
The joint was an EASY fix. Goody sells SILICONE rubberbands. They are round, like a tube, not flat.
Double one of those up and it lays right in that groove. Silicone can take that heat no problem and it TOTALLY resolves the caught hair issue.
The brush is not made of hard plastic bristles, which is a vast improvement, IMO.
This is cheap, works great for big curls on the ends of your hair.
Today my hair looks better than it has in years. Loads of nice big waves and curls.
I love it!

The other reviews I read are mostly accurate. The curler does not overheat (it keeps me from burning my hair...). The tip does overheat. My daughter and I bought this curler because you cannot find this size in retail stores (we have looked and looked), but we have to be very careful with the hot tip. It does not get as hot as the iron itself, but you cannot touch it for more that a second or two at a time if you don't want burned fingertips! My daughter and I have each had a Helen of Troy for some time and they have lasted through several years of daily usage. BUT...although we are keeping the Helen of Troys for back up, we are about to order another model we found from Conair---the same size but with a cool tip and auto shut off...two very desirable features!!!

Size Name: 1 1/2" barrel
I finally found a product to give me that slight "bend" that I needed to make me look like Jennifer Aniston (I wish!). I recently cut my, somewhat long, baby fine and thinning hair into that style known as "The Rachel". The one that Jennifer Aniston made so popular. It is long all over, but graduated lengths in the front. This style needs a large round brush to acheive that slight bend at the ends.

I am terrible with a round brush and blow dryer. I tried a blow dryer with a round brush attachment and found it extremely cumbersome. Finally, I came upon the Helen of Troy "Mega" heated brush and..... voila!....perfection!

I dry my hair with a regular blow dryer and after it is dry, I use the "Mega" brush to give me the "bend". I can also use it on days when I have not washed my hair, as well.

I am very pleased with this product.
