Sultra 'Bombshell' Clipless Iron Styling Glove
This glove came with my bombshell 1' curling rod and I can't image using the product without it. The rod does get pretty hot and I would never expect a glove/rod combo to fully not let me feel any heat but come on people......you aren't suppose to leave your hand pressed on the rod! When I curl my hair, my hand is not physically touching the rod. I am simply holding the end of the piece i'm curling close enough to the rod. You really don't need to hold your hair with your hand or fingers to achieve a curl. For the tips or bottoms that aren't touching the rod, I do those last and just wrap them around the rod and hold it with my fingers for a few seconds. You don't need to hold it any longer.
I image that if there was a glove out there that was completely 100% heat resistant it would be a bit more constrictive and probably a lot harder to manage. It's like the "caution: hot coffee" label that drives me nuts.....it's hot people!! If you use this glove properly, it does exactly what's it's suppose to do. I love it and would recommend this to anyone who would uses Sultra's clipless rod.
Serves No Purpose
I ordered this to protect my hand. The box states: "Helps protect hand from iron heat" and just under that, "The styling glove is not a safety glove. It will not protect your hand from burn". As it is made from 100% cotton, it may not be what I had hoped for.
Protects all fingers
I bought this to replace a 2 fingered glove that came with the iron I bought. This one is comfortable, not bulky and covers all fingers. Although its not made to allow you to touch the barrel of the iron, I can keep my finger on there long enough to get the curl I want. And I love the color.
