      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.

                      Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic Flat Iron:

                      I received this flat iron as a gift for Christmas and was very excited to try it out. I've only ever used another competitive brand from another beauty store and have always been loyal to it. I decided this would be a good change and would work better than my current flat iron as it did cost almost twice as much as the current flat iron I own. Boy, was I so wrong! Before even plugging this iron in, I read the box and noticed that it 9th heated to 392°F. That's okay if you want to take an hour to flat iron your hair. And it did not adjust to a lower temp (not that I care to do so). And before and anyone starts saying that my hair must be damaged, it is not. My hair is extremely long, dark, shiny, and healthy.
                      After trying the flat iron on my head for about 15 mins, it was frizzy and wavy is some spots. I could only achieve the level of straight I desire by running the flat iron over the same piece of hair several times. Which really defeats the purpose of using a flat iron at a low temperature. Finally, I decided to give up and take out my old flat iron midway through my hair (which I have tons of).
                      I definitely do not recommend this one anyone which thick long hair. It will not provide the results one is seeking.

                      I had this product for almost 10 years. Due to frequent use all these years,started to show wear and tear. It still worked but wiring started to be exposed. since over the years I received so many compliments of my hair looking straight and shiny, which is normally very curly, frizzy, and dry looking, I had to by the same flat iron. I love my CHI!!!

                      Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic Flat Iron:

                      I have been a long time customer of Ultra Chi hair straighteners. My first model lasted a good 4 years, the second model lasted roughly 2 years, and my newest one purchased in October of 2015 lasted 2 months. I have noticed a steady decline in quality such as shorter straighteners, bulkier body, chunkier controls, and milder temperatures. I initially started purchasing chi products because of my thick curly, frizzy hair and it no longer performs as well as previous models. One of the ceramic plates on this model no longer heats up after only two months. I will no longer be purchasing chi products even with the warranty.

                          A:

                          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! :-)
