Hot Tools 2" Curling Iron Review

So my curling iron arrived a few weeks ago, but I didn't really have chance to use it for a while to actually test it out properly so that's why I didn't do my review right away. Now that I've used it a few times I can actually write a review on it. I've been looking for a bigger size curling iron and I found one in a beauty supply store but they wanted 110$. So I went shopping online and I purchased this through iron experts. It came to around $70. I must say I was pretty disappointed. It does not heat up fast and even when it does, I don't think it even reaches 430F. With all my other curling irons or even flat irons at 430F my hair would just burn and be so damaged but this doesn't even produce a curl. I tried using it on freshly washed hair, I tried using it with hair spray, I also tried not washing my hair for 3 days just to see if that would make a difference but it didn't. The only thing it works good on is the bangs, if you want to style it side ways. Overall, pretty disappointed with this particular product. I did try to return it and exchange it but they require it to be in original package and I just had the purple small box it came in but not the plastic cover that goes on top of it and then they wanted $5 for the plastic cover, and shipping would've cost me anywhere from 30-40$ so it was not even worth for me to send it back.Even though I am disappointed and did not end up sending it back, the people at flat iron experts were friendly and returned my call fast so thumbs up for that. Quick Review Pros -Pretty good price -Shipped fast -Return/Exchange available within 30 days of purchase Cons -Does not heat up fast -Does not seem to heat up to 430F -Hard to hold/heavy -Does not really produce curls even with hairspray Overall Disappointed in this particular product. I feel like it does not heat up to advertised temperature, and it does not create any curls. I tried using it with my extensions to try to create loose curls but that did not work. Maybe it's just best for people with short hair with layers who just want to flip their hair out. I heard good things about hot tools but this particular product pretty much sucks! I am not sure if I am going to be trying any of their other product..maybe one more time but with a smaller size curling iron, and maybe a different series.
