Comments about Chi Ceramic 1'' Hairstyling Iron:

Terrible. It's not smooth and it burnt my hair, leaving it with a burn smell. Doesn't grasp the hair to well and didn't take out my waves from my braids after I flat iron it. So disappointed. I'm getting a Paul mitchel flat iron.

          I bought this to replace the CHI I had for almost 10 years and I have to say I'm pretty upset with how long this one lasted. Barely made it two and a half years before it shorted out on one side and fried my hair! It sparked under the plate and smoked immediately after. Got so hot I couldn't even touch it. I don't know what they did to these, but they clearly are not made the way they used to be. My original straightener didn't even fully stop working when I had to replace it. The wiring just got loose so it wouldn't stay on all the time. They've obviously become very cheaply made and I will not be repurchasing another.

                      I was so excited when I bought this iron because I love the Chi products! But after about 2 months of using it, I noticed that the ends of my hair were frayed and dry. I used to be a professional hairstylist so I'm sure that it wasn't user error. I decided that it was just too hot for my fine textured hair. I exchanged it for another Chi iron that had adjustable heat seatings. Love the new iron!

                          This item is misrepresented and falsely advertised. This is NOT the original CHI. This is cheaply made and offers NO way to adjust the temperature. There is just an on/off button; that's it. I came to ULTA, specifically, thinking they would be reputable and give me what I purchased, "the original". A little bummed thinking maybe the real original does not exist any longer. : L

                            I had a chi same type for 10 years I bought the same kind of chi as the one I had and it does not do the same job. I don't feel that it straightens my hair as good as the old chi did I don't feel like the results of straightening the hair last as long either. The out side gets super hot my old chi didn't do that I bought it from ulta so I know its not a knock off. I bough this Chi Feb,2017. The old chi was bought 2008

                                    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. :-)

                                  Does it auto shut off if left on?

                                    No, there is no automatic shut-off feature.
