- A Few Final Thoughts on the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set
Are you one of those people that like many choices when you go to curl your thick hair? Well, fortunately for you there are some curling irons that come with several interchangeable barrels that will allow you many curling options. One of those is the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set. It’s like getting 6 different curling irons for the price of one. It certainly has us intrigued so we absolutely had to take a closer look at this versatile hair curling tool that can be used on thick hair.
Taking a Fast Look at the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set
Here is a quick glance at the good and bad things you get with this curling iron that does a nice job on shorter hair:
- 8 HeatBalance® barrel design
- 450°F max heat
- Ceramic tourmaline coated barrel
- Dual voltage capability
- 6 interchangeable barrels (3-tapered, 3-standard)
- MoistureLock® Technology
- Only 3 temperature settings

Performance and Versatility
Whether you use this product to curl your own thick hair or lend it to a friend to curl their fine hair it’s no problem for the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set. That is the type of versatility you get from a curling tool that has six different barrel choices in all. There are 3 different tapered barrels that come with it ( ½”,1”,1½”) and 3 non-tapered barrels that also come with it ( ½”,1”,1 ½”). The 3 non-tapered barrel choices feature spring clamps to hold your hair in place while curling it.
You also get 3 LED selected heat choices (310°F, 360°F and 450°F) and the barrels that come with the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set are ceramic tourmaline coated.
That translates to curling iron barrels that will distribute heat evenly, help your thick hair retain moisture and give you a little-added shine during the curling process too. This is all part of what XARA calls their 8 HeatBalance® barrel design and their MoistureLock® Technology.
Safety and Convenience
This is a no-frills type curling iron for sure. A good example of that is its old-style LED heat selection. It comes with a standard 8-foot power cord that has a tangle-free swivel end attached to it.
The XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set does come with an automatic shutoff timer but sadly there is no included protective styling glove because you will need one when using this curling tool.
Why is the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set so Effective at Curling Thick Hair?
There are two very important reasons we feel the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set will work great on your thick hair:
The strong protein bonds in thick hair are no match for this curling iron’s highest heat setting of 450°F. That high heat setting will make your thick hair shape and curl exactly the way you want it to.
The barrel versatility of the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set is the other reason it should work great on thick hair. There is a barrel size and shape that will work on every type of thick hair.
Warranty Support and Potential Concerns with the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set
The warranty terms are kind of hard to understand on this product. We believe after investigating that it’s a standard 1-year warranty but again this company is a little vague on their exact warranty policy.
It’s not very often that we review a product where one of its features is both a pro and a con but that is exactly the case with the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set. We like the fact that it has a very high max heat setting of 450°F. What we think could be improved upon is the fact there is only three heat setting choices at all.
We are also big believers in digital temperature readouts and heat selection. This curling iron only has a pushbutton LED selection with no temperature readout. So you never really know exactly what the working temperature of this curling iron is when you are using it.
A Few Final Thoughts on the XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron Set
This is definitely one of our favorite curling irons for curling thick hair. Heck, for that matter it’s one of our favorites for curling any type of hair. The XARA 6 in 1 Curling Iron is really that versatile a curling tool. It has no bells and whistles so to speak but we love the high 450°F max hear and the multiple barrel choices you get with it. You should definitely consider it for purchase if you like lots of fun curling choices for your thick hair.
