Hair-Brained Idea...

Though the curling iron I brought to India from the states is rated 120/240V, believe me when I say it’s not.  When I plug it in it becomes so hot that the only thing it’s good for is making grill marks on my chicken dinner to give the illusion that we have a barbecue grill or branding some of these free roaming cows.

After going au natural for much too long, I broke down and bought a new one.  Take a look at it; can you see the flaw in its design?
No?  Let me show you again. 
If you still don't see it, the clip should run the length of the barrel.

Can someone please tell me, especially since Indian women are known for having long, thick hair; what kind of stooge came up with this...and no, I'm sure it wasn't Curly.

I had a curling iron like that a few years back. The instructions said I was supposed to secure the end of a section of hair with the small clip and then twirl the rest so it would slide out when released, making a pretty corkscrew. I never got the hang of it and eventually bought a regular one.

OK. Yeah. I can see where Blondefabulous is going. And I would still burn the crap out of myself.

That's one of those "WTF Moment Generators". Most of Asia is chock full of 'em.

Get a few step down boxes and you should be able to use your regular stuff. I remember the days of Hotter than Hot appliances. Don't miss that! Hope all is well!
