Xtava Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron Review

Xtava Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron Review

Retail: 45.00

EEEKKK!  I love hair tools and when the opportunity arrises to review a product by Xtava...well...I jump at the chance.  I own several Xtava products (spiral wand, flat iron, hair dryer) and now this new baby!  This is the Xtava auto rotating curling iron.  What makes this iron a little different from the rest is the auto rotating ceramic tourmaline barrel.  Yes, the barrel rotates with the push of button (left or right).  

This iron arrives in the sleekest black box...the box even says "Silk Edition".  I'm a sucker for packaging and this box is breathtaking!  Once I opened the box and plugged it in, I noticed it heats up to 430 degrees.  I was super excited to see this as this is the temperature setting I always use.  Before I began to use it, I played around a bit with the auto rotating buttons.  I am left handed and I was happy to see this iron accommodates us lefties. 

When you push the button, it begins a nice, even, rotation.  Depending on which way you place your hair in the barrel, and which way you want your curl to go, will determine which button you push (L or R).  Now, I have been curling my hair for over twenty years and I have to admit, I had some issues at first.  Several times I pushed the button only to realize seconds later it was turning the wrong direction and I had to start over.  I think what made it even more difficult was looking in the mirror and of course everything is backwards.

But, I don't give up easily and continued to teach myself where the buttons are located and which button does what (without looking).  I soon got the hang of it and I was an auto curling pro in no time!  Now, you can use this iron without using the rotating feature....that works too.  But to be honest, once I got the hang of it, I really enjoyed the auto rotating feature.  It made it easier to curl in the back of my head in those hard to reach places.  

 Here are the features from Amazon:

  • AUTO ROTATING CERAMIC TOURMALINE BARREL The Xtava auto-rotating curling iron features an innovative automated bi-directional rotating control for maximum ease and comfort. Simply clip the hair on the barrel and let xtava do the rest with the touch of button, the ceramic tourmaline barrel generates constant and even heat creating long lasting perfect curls.
  • HEAT CONTROL The Xtava auto-rotating curling iron features accurate heat control with 11 temperature stages between 210F-430F allowing styling versatility for all hair types. For fine hair, use low temperature for best results. Thick and wavy hair will require a higher temperature. The LCD display will ensure simple, accurate and convenient operation.
  • 360 SWIVEL 8 FT. CORD With the Xtava Silk edition you will not need any extension cord or a nearby outlet thanks to its 8 ft. long power cord. Avoid getting your cable entangled while styling your hair, with the integrated 360 degree swivel system that will simply rotate as you work.
  • SHUT-OFF FUNCTION Incorporates a convenient auto-shutoff function that will turn off the device when left unattended - never worry again after rushing out.
  • TRAVEL FRIENDLY Universal dual Voltage that can adapt to your travel schedule and ensure you look just as perfect on the road as at home.

Final Thoughts:
This is hands down a professional curling iron and I am extremely impressed.  It has a beautiful design, but most importantly, it does what a curling iron should do......produce beautiful curls.  It heats up instantly to 430 degrees, has an automatic shut off switch, offers an auto rotating feature and produces stunning barrel curls!!  This is the fourth Xtava hair tool I own and I am impressed with the quality of all of them.  You can read more about the Xtava Auto Rotating Curling Iron on Amazon.
