Sultra Bombshell 1 inch vs 1.5 inch

I cannot decide which to buy the Sultra 1inch or 1.5 inch. I really just want beachy style waves. I hate the perm look! From my research it looks like both are possible with either wand. Has anyone used both and would recommend one over the other? I'm leaning more toward the 1.5 inch but I'm worried based on reviews it won't hold the curl. My hair is thick and straight and has never held a curl for long before. The 1 inch has gotten better reviews on average. Can does anyone have some good advice before I bite the bullet. I know Sephora has a great return policy I'd just not rather not have to deal with returning it since there isn't a store nearby.

Hi LSexton,

 

I would recommend purchasing the Sultra Bombshell in the 1 inch size. I have very thick, long hair and this is one of the few curling irons I have used that actually holds the curl in my hair all day! I think the 1 inch size is slightly easier to use. I can definitely achieve a beachy wave with the Sultra.  I'm including a picture of my hair after curling it with the Sultra Bombshell. This is about three or four hours after curling my hair and it was still going strong! I definitely need a light mist of hairspray after using the Sultra but overall, I've been really happy with it.

Re: Sultra Bombshell 1 inch vs 1.5 inch

Hey Randee, or anyone else who has used a Sultra (or any other wand, for that matter), do the curls tend to loosen the same as a regular curling iron? Or do they tend to stay closer to the size of the barrel of the wand? 

Re: Sultra Bombshell 1 inch vs 1.5 inch

Hi etscorel,

 

In my experience, the curls loosen after about 6 to 7 hours, but not nearly as much as they do with a regular curling iron, and the hair still looks pretty and wavy. My hair is naturally stick straight though, so not sure if they would loosen as much on someone who has hair that is naturally more wavy. Smiley Happy

Re: Sultra Bombshell 1 inch vs 1.5 inch

Thanks Randee! My hair is stick straight, past my shoulders and pretty fine (not much volume), but I have tons of it! Curls tend to fall out almost immediately, even with product, to the point where I prefer a 3/4" barrel curling iron so by the time they start to loosen, they look like curls that are produced by 1.5" barrels with cooperative hair. 

 

But if they're going to hold better than a curling iron, I would probably opt for the 1" barrel because 3/4" is a bit tight if they don't loosen as easily. Your hair looks amazing, so if mine is anything like yours (straight and uncooperative), this might be a good investment!
