|Yes that's a quarter hanging off the heating element|
This measures 5 1/2" L x 3/4"W (rounding up slightly). The actual heating element part is 2 1/2" x 1/2" (again rounding UP). You may have noticed from my videos that I have a lot more hair than the average person..ok more hair than the average two people combined. I decided to give it a whirl anyhoo. Luckily, it heats up quickly.It took me about forty minutes to do my entire head. It should have taken a lot more but I was too impatient to section it out enough. I did have some frizziness but overall it came out looking passable.
