    Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron:

    I always buy Chi flat irons and after 2 years mine gave out. I purchased this one in December and after 3 months on of the plates stopped heating up so my hair would not straighten evenly. I went back to Ulta because I had the warranty and got the exact same one brand new. One month later, one of the plates stopped working AGAIN. Not worth the money especially since the problem has seemed to happen to others.

        I've had this straightener since Christmas of 2010. I've used it almost every day since then. It's fantastic. Yes, it damages your hair. What straightener doesn't? You're clearly supposed to use a heat protector beforehand.

              This product is great for women with thick hair. Usually straightening my hair takes forever, now it doesn't take very long at all. I'm a Latina and I think I have my hair on the thicker side of the spectrum when it comes to thickness, however, my hair is extremely fine. I love this.

                  Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron:

                  I had to purchase a new straightener after my old chi finally gave out after 8 years. Decided to try this one, from the first time I used it I did not like it but decided to give some time. Eventually figured out that the reason my hair was not straighting properly was because one plate wasn't heating up and the other plate was overheating. My hair became so damaged after just few uses. Took it back and exchanged it for the original black chi like I previously had.

                  After years of struggling with inferior flat irons, I finally decided to take the leap and treat myself to a Chi. I was NOT disappointed. This is a fantastic product and you truly "get what you pay for". Spend the few extra dollars if you can !! I LOVE that it comes with a travel case and that the cord is super long - longer than any cord I've ever seen on a styling product.

                      "This tool is dual voltage and automatic: 120-240V" does that mean it will or will not work in India?

                        A:

                        CHI irons have ceramic-coated and ceramic-infused plates made with the optimal amount of ceramic to provide proper heat transfer. An iron with a plate of 100% ceramic would result in a plate that is more likely to chip, crack or break.
