HELP! Need extra long heat glove

Does anyone know where to find these? I just got my Sedu clipless curling iron and burned my wrist within like 2 minutes. It came with a glove, but it only covers the hand and not the wrist. I am not sure why they don't make these longer! Any suggestions would be great. Perhaps someone knows a way to rig something to go over my wrist. I would prefer it goes up to the elbow.

If I don't find something I am going to have to send this back. I have long hair and its hard to reach around to do the back of my hair without getting burnt.

Mine for my Sultra only goes to the wrist but I've never gotten burned. Maybe try some type of oven mitt?

I just went to the Sultra website and looked at the glove being used. It is way longer than the one that came with my Sedu and covers the area on the wrist where I was burned. I am seriously thinking about getting a heat resistant sleeve if I can find one. I might have to try a food service store or something.

This made me laugh

Yeah, definitely try a chefwear store or something similar. I'm sure they'll have something like that.

Thanks ladies. I just ordered one of these and it should work. I have never used a clipless iron before so I am a bit clumsy. Hopefully I will get better at it.

Question......how do these clipless irons work? You just wrap the hair around and hold it there? I use a regular iron now to do that but just don't use the clip. I just wrap the hair and leave the ends out so they get that beachy look. Does the clipless iron do the same thing?

Gotta say I love my Sultra sorry to TC haha but anyways, my friend had bought a leather one at a hair show. You can probably find some at Sallys.

Lynne, Yup you just wrap your hair around the rod and the glove will help from obviously burning your hands & it helps for getting the ends curled too. But it's pretty much the same thing.

Nicole, the first few times you use it are a bitch, but once you get used to it its super easy. I never wear the heat glove anymore, I find it more hindering than helpful. For the back of my head, I just pull my hair to the side so I can see what I'm doing. I haven't burnt myself yet(knock on wood).

Do you clip your hair when you work on it? I am having problems sectioning off my hair. The back is a BITCH. I will try what you suggested though, but only after I get my heat sleeve. I can't afford to have all these ugly marks on my arms.

Nope, I don't clip it. I section my hair in half and throw one side over my shoulder, and curl the other working from front to back, and put the finished pieces in front of my shoulder so it doesn't get mixed up with the other hair. I don't know if that made any sense :

I do the same thing Jess. At first it was difficult but I've gotten it down to about 10 mins.
Lynne you do get the beachy type waves with the sultra but there are different ways to position the iron and hair to get different curls. This was seriously one of the best gifts I've ever gotten.
