    Comments about Chi Ceramic 1" Hairstyling Iron:

    I've owned this flat iron for almost 4 years now and I have no complaints, I love that automatic temperature increase with pressure. I usually use it to add some defined curls to my already wavy hair but it also works great at straightening my double processed bleached pink hair. CHI is an amazing brand and I always recommend it to my clients.

          This product can be used many ways. Not only a straitener but also can curl hair as well as add waves and a bend in the hair. Very easy to use, warms up fairly quick and I bought it at a great price. Definitely would recommend to people and would buy more CHI products in the future

            Comments about Chi Ceramic 1" Hairstyling Iron:

            I bought a Chi hair straightener at Ulta Beauty store a year ago. I started to realize my hair was looking "fried" a month or so ago so I asked my hair dresser and she said what type of hair straightener do you use? And I said a Chi, she then asked if it has a temperature control and mine does not. She said "stop using it". When I went to look at it the other day to expect, the straightener smells like it is burning! I am super disappointed in this product as your products are so expensive and I know have to buy a new straightener, and pay a hefty hairdresser fee every month to help restore my hair (as she said this damage will take a year or so to fix :/

            it's really sad you don't care about your consumers and will sad lousy products just to make a buck, thanks for the damaged hair and bad product. Will be telling all my friends about this.

              I got this hair this hair straightener around a year and a half ago and it worked amazingly when I got it! But after I traveled with it for a weekend trip, it became completely unusable. I tried using it and it COMPLETELY fried my hair, like cartoon electrocuted hair fried. The three or so pieces I straighten were damaged for a good 6-7 months. I later purchased another chi and all the power went over to one plate, making the other plate room temperature.

                Comments about Chi Ceramic 1" Hairstyling Iron:

                I have had this product for well over 10 years now! I used it in a salon when I did hair, but I have also used it daily. The best way to describe my hair is course, thick, frizzy, and wavy. I have never had it snag or break my hair. I also use it to curl my hair and it works flawlessly! The reviews I've read for this is hilarious... You can clearly read in the description that it does not have a temperature adjustment, which if you are worried about heat damage you should be using a heat protection product to begin with. I also read that someone said it makes the hair "too flat".... It's a flat iron. If you don't want your hair too flat, change the way you are using your iron and you can get full, straight hair. I'd buy this product over and over again, as it works for difficult hair. If your hair is fine I probably wouldn't recommend it because the heat can be too much for finer hair types.

                    I bought my Chi Hair Iron nearly 10 years ago and a few weeks ago it finally died on me. And I loved it until the very end. I was surprised it lasted so long. Even though I didn't use it everyday, I did use it at least a couple times a month and it stood up to a good amount of wear and tear. I brought it everywhere with me and really did love it! I think it says a lot for this iron that I had it for almost 10 years. I know a lot of people give overlook Chi since there have been a lot of new irons out on the market, but I was very happy with this iron and thought it did the job. I actually used it for curling my hair more than straightening it and it worked great! I will probably be repurchasing this iron because I was so happy with it for so long. I hope they haven't changed the quality!

                          They are equally awesome at reducing frizz and straightening hair! Ultra CHI tools are essentially identical in craftsmanship and materials to CHI tools - the only difference is that they are available in limited edition colors and patterns that are exclusive to Ulta Beauty. :-)
