      Comments about Chi Ceramic 1" Hairstyling Iron:

      My asian hair is semi thick and is in between straight and wavy. This iron gives a very clean, sleek and smooth straightening look, but I feel it makes the hair too flat. I also feel it damages my hair a lot. My hair breaks easily and I believe it to be because of using this product. I know all heating products do some kind of damage, but I think this one does a lot because it's super hot with no other temperature setting. Just on and off switch. However, I've tried cheaper products and another CHI (cheaper than this one) and I feel like they don't make the nice, sleek straight look like this one does. So I am half and half on this one. I keep going back to using this product, but I try not to run it through my hair too many times or for too long so that my hair won't damage so much and so that my hair won't be too flat.

        Comments about Chi Ceramic 1" Hairstyling Iron:

        I've only used this a few times, since my keratin treatment does a great job of keeping my hair straight most of the time. There's only one issue--the placement of the on/off button is not good, because if you're not careful turning it off, you can burn yourself, since the button is between the two heating blades. It happened to me once, so I'm much more careful now.

              Comments about Chi Ceramic 1" Hairstyling Iron:

              I bought this exact product about 10 years ago and has worked perfectly ever since. I used to go through cheaper brands of flat irons so often, so I decided to spend a little more on a Chi, and it was more than worth it for how well it works and how long it lasted. I am ordering another one because mine just died, but I think 10 years is more than commendable, considering I used it almost every day and sometime forgot to turn it off so it would be on for 12+ hours sometimes. I have fine hair so it's pretty easy to straighten anyway, but no other flat iron I have used compared.

                  I've used CHI since I was battling the awful 6th grade frizzies, each of my CHIs has lasted years and has always been just what I needed. I bought one for my mom for christmas this year and my sister also purchased one recently and we had to return both. Apparently the company was bought out by someone new, therefore it is new manufacturers and IT IS NOT THE SAME. The new CHIs don't seem to heat up as well and just don't do a good job. Worried about the day my current straighter breaks because I'll have to find a new brand.

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. :-)
