Today I’m going to talk to you about the T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron. I received the #Twirl360 because I’m an #iFabboMember. The T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron is a new, unique curling iron that has patent-pending motion-sensing technology to auto-rotate the barrel and help you achieve perfect, bouncing curls or waves.
T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron Review
EDIT – Nov. 8, 2015. This curling iron has been recalled! While I haven’t had an issue with it, many have reported that the clamp breaks off while in use!
About the T3 Twirl 360 Motion-Sensing, Auto-Rotating 1.25” Curling Iron
A groundbreaking curling iron that senses the movement of your hand and rotates in the desired direction for uniform, shiny, long-lasting curls and waves. Flawless curls, powered by science. T3’s revolutionary gyroscopic curling iron features patent-pending motion-sensing technology and an auto-rotating barrel to create beautiful curls and waves with a simple turn of your wrist. The Twirl 360 senses the movement of your hand and automatically rotates in the desired direction, forming polished, perfect curls every time.
The T3 has 5 heat settings
- 1 – 260 degrees (for fine, damaged or chemically treated hair)
- 2 – 300 degrees (for fine, damaged or chemically treated hair)
- 3 – 351 degrees (for normal to thick hair)
- 4 – 390 degrees (for normal to thick hair)
- 5 – 410 degrees (for normal to thick hair)
It has 2 speed settings – slow and fast. Hold down the power button for fast or tap it once for slow. You double click this button to choose the heat setting and it lights up 1 to 5 lights based on your choice.
The barrel is made of tourmaline and ceramic technology. This allows it to heat your hair evenly, smooth the hair and helps the curls to last longer. With the 1.25″ barrel, you get larger curls or sultry waves.
My normal hair, which is straight, color treated, and fine textured. For the love of Jack, before you curl your hair, make sure you use a heat protectant! You don’t want your hair to be burned up to a crisp or damaged. See my cruelty free heat protectants.
The T3 Twirl 360 has a mid-barrel clip, which makes it pretty easy to curl layered sections of hair or longer ones. I sort of like the white barrel since it makes it so very easy to see my hair against it.
The T3 Twirl 360 gives me nice waves that add volume to my fine, straight hair.
What I liked about it
I really loved the tourmaline and ceramic barrel because I felt it did an awesome job of adding shine to my hair and smoothing it. The 1.25″ barrel is a great size for my slightly longer than shoulder length layered hair. It does a fantastic job of creating waves in my hair. It did a nice job of making curls. I like the heat setting options and that it heats up quickly. It has an auto shut off that will turn it off after it’s been on for about an hour, which I consider a necessity in a styling tool.
What I didn’t like about it
I actually am not a fan of the auto twirl technology. Even on the slow setting, the tilting the wrist and holding the button to rotate felt more awkward to me than the normal motion. Even on the slow setting I was concerned that with my shorter layers I might go too close to my scalp.
I definitely think the tourmaline and ceramic barrel are awesome and I need to make sure all my future heat styling tools have a high quality barrel like the T3’s, but I feel this is a very expensive curling iron. I think if you curl your hair frequently, you might like the auto twirl technology. I definitely think it’s an improvement over curling wands.
What do you think of the T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron? How do you prefer to style your hair?
