        Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic Flat Iron:

        I have a CHI at home already that I bought quite some time ago, way better than this current product. This product does not have a multi setting dial like my old one, the cord is about 6 inches longer which is irritating, and the plug is huge so that I cannot plug in both my blow dryer and my straighter so that my straightener can heat up while I blow dry my hair and then I can immediately straighten my hair, it takes longer now.

              Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic Flat Iron:

              I have wavy hair on humid days and thought a higher end product would replace my inexpensive flat iron that finally stopped working after 3 years. Very disappointed I used my rewards and gift card to purchase. Should have bought another Revlon for a third of the price.

                              For starters, the Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic flat iron is "Ultra CHI" branded vs. the classic "CHI" brand of the other iron in question. What does this mean? Not to worry, Ultra CHI products are still made by CHI, but CHI collaborates with Ulta Beauty to create exclusive tools with you in mind! For example, this red 1" iron comes with a white thermal mat that you will not find with the other iron or any other CHI tool elsewhere. On the flip side, because the other iron is "CHI" branded, CHI can back a two-year warranty on it vs. the one-year warranty on the red iron.

                              Yes, the Ultra CHI Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron features infrared technology.

                              The G2 Iron (Item #: 2262629) also features infrared technology, but unlike the Ultra CHI irons, the G2 has adjustable temperature controls with LCD readout, titanium-infused ceramic plates (ideal for quick styling of coarse, textured and difficult to style hair types), and a 2-year warranty (vs. Ultra CHI's 1-year). The G2 also reaches a higher maximum temperature - 425 degrees F (vs. Ultra CHI's 392 degrees). If you have coarse, thick, textured, and/or hard-to-style hair, you may prefer the G2. We hope this helps! :-)
