                  I love that this straightener heats up within minutes to the heat level selected. I have thick hair and I usually use it the morning after I have slept on a wet head, which as you can imagine puts my hair into all kinds of funky positions. But this straightener smooths them all out without damaging my hair or frying it to bits. It gives it a nice smooth and fresh finish and make my pillow head a forgotten memory. I love the size for my length of hair so I don't have to go over it more than twice, if even that.

                          Comments about Chi G2 1.25" Hairstyling Iron:

                          I am a firm believer in: 'You get what you pay for.' I have always loved Chi Straighteners - they simply work the best for my hair texture (white female, with medium length, fine, wavy hair - and lots of it. Color treated every 7 weeks, with partial highlights). Prior to this, I used the 1-inch Original Chi and Chi Air (for the past 10-11 years) before purchasing the G2 1 1/4 straightener. With the 1-inch Original Chi and Air, it would take multiple swipes for each section to get my hair straight (I have a few stubborn places that really want to be wavy). With the Chi G2 1 1/4 straightener, each section is straightened with one swipe and done (I am able to put it on the highest heat setting 425 degrees without frying my hair). Out of habit, I feel the need to go through it all again - but I don't need to. This straightener allows me to feel like I'm not frying my hair with multiple swipes through each section. Even though it's only an additional 1/4 inch, it is exceptionally efficient. I would highly recommend this straightener.

                              Yes, the plates themselves feature beveled edges, and the outer part of the iron is rounded, so you can certainly use it to create curls!

                              It features larger width plates (1.25"), so you'll see looser curls/waves. The larger plates of this model are especially ideal for thicker hair and longer lengths.

                              This G2 model features titanium-infused ceramic plates heat quickly and evenly, ideal for styling of coarse hair including textured or frizz-prone hair. To help prevent thermal damage, we always recommend using a heat protectant styling product such as 44 Iron Guard:
