This is a good product. My daughter has very thick curly hair. I think for this to really work for you, you have to understand your hair. This was a process for me as I have two daughters with totally different hair. One with thick curly hair and one with thick straighter hair that has a lot of body. One thing that I learned from a stylist at a salon is that you have to use a light spray before curling, then a heavy spray to freeze it after you curl. Definitely use a glove to hold the hair secure to the iron. The one that comes with it is a joke. Don't even bother with it. It's for a right hand and as a right handed person, I put the iron in my right hand so I would need a left handed glove and it's only a partial glove......I threw it out and used a cheap winter glove. My only beef with this iron and the reason it didn't get a full five stars is that the on/off switch is located exactly where i hold the iron so I kept turning the iron off by accident. The first time it happened I couldn't understand why the hair wasn't taking a curl. Honestly, even though it gets the job done, I'm not sure that you have to spend this much. I bought my older daughter the Remington for Christmas last year and it's cheaper and accomplishes the same. Here's a tip I got from my stylist - My daughter with the thick curly hair straightened her hair first before using the iron (to get softer curls). Apparently, the hair has a harder time taking a curl if you do that. Wash it, dry it and then use the iron.
