    Comments about Chi Escape Cordless Hair Styling Iron:

    I saw a review that said this product is good for short hair and I just wanna say.... LOL um no. I have a PIXIE and this thing dies (while plugged in) before I'm done using it. Call me crazy but I don't think a straightener should die while it's plugged in. Extremely annoying.

              I purchased this in hope of having something while on the road. I work for a truck driving job over the road for 3 weeks at a time and being able to have something while on the go I thought was prefect. However, after the purchase I was eager to try it out..well it didn't straighten as well as I hoped for. Slightly disappointed. I love the size, but the quality just didn't do well for me.

              Comments about Chi Escape Cordless Hair Styling Iron:

              I have mid-long hair and this piece of junk is useless for me. I can never finish my hair before it dies. Most of the time you can't use it while it charges because it dies on you even then when it is literally plugged in. Sure the cordless thing is nice but when you are stuck waiting for like an hour to finish your hair it's a joke. I wish I never would have bought this. Should've stuck with the brand I always used to get because getting this chi was the biggest purchasing mistake I have EVER made.

                      This thing does not get hot enough to straighten your hair at all! It looses its charge in less than 20 minutes and feels like breaks your hair from pressing down. It's really worthless trust me.

                              I felt like this flatiron was not strong enough and also too small. I couldn't grasp a lot of my hair. The worst part though was when I traveled to Japan with this. As I was leaving Japan they confiscated my flatiron since it had a lithium battery that you couldn't detach. The flatiron was so tiny they couldn't unscrew the battery but I'm not even sure if they would have been able to anyway. This flatiron should really be designed differently for many reasons.

                                    This is a compact styling iron, so it may take you a bit longer to style your hair due to the smaller plate size.

                                    Yes, you can use it daily, but we always recommend applying a heat protectant product to your hair such as 44 Iron Guard!
