Hit or Miss: Conair 1.5 inch Curling Iron
Usually when you first start using a new hair styling product like a flat iron or curling iron, it has a slight burning smell while it burns off stuff from packaging and manufacturing. Eventually it stops doing that, though. Well, at least, usually it does. That's not necessarily the case here.
Not only does the iron itself have a pretty strong burning plastic smell, but it also leaves my hair stinking too! I'm hoping it was burning product and not burning hair... the smell lasts in my hair all day, and although the curls/waves are nice and tend to last, the smell makes it unbearable, so I had to throw the curling iron away.
This curling iron is a definite MISS! Anyone have any good recommendations for other larger-barrel irons that work well? I have another Conair one (tourmaline coated), but it doesn't work all that well. Any other suggestions?
