    Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

    I have curly hair underneath and straight hair on top. Plus I have been coloring my hair for years and have been trying to grow he length so my ends are pretty frizzy and this hair dryer works amazing. It dries my thick hair faster than my other hair dryer that feels stronger. This is the best hair dryer I have ever owned and would recommend it to everyone. I have had this for about a month and still as happy as the first day I've tried it. I don't have any issues with it not having different heat settings except for the cool blast. And I don't have an issues with the locations of the buttons.

        This dryer works well. Only one heat setting, but most people use the high heat setting. My hair is more smooth than with cheaper dryers.

              I purchased this hair dryer Thankgiving 2013 and only 9 months later it stopped blowing hot air. Wish I would have read the reviews prior to buying it. I will now that I'm having to look for a new one. Thank goodness I kept a spare dryer around since it stopped working as I was getting ready for work.

                  The heating element went out on this dryer after a year of use. For the money you spend on this product, you don't expect such a short shelf life. Neither Ulta nor Chi are of any help after a year. Better to purchase a less expensive dryer than to waste your money on this product.

                  I purchased this dryer on 8/3/2013 and today (8/7/2014) I'm searching for another hair dryer because mine suddenly stopped blowing out heat.
                  I bought this dryer because I was told CHI makes great products. I can honestly say this is the worst hair dryer I've purchased.

                    How does this hair dryer differ from Chi Model GF1505?

                    Are both the same hairdryer, just a different color, therefore a different Model #?

                      The body style and wattage are the same, but the Ultra CHI dryer is made with Ceramic and Tourmaline and the Pro dryer has Ceramic.

                      This dryer produces Far Infrared heat to reduce drying time as well as reduce frizz and static electricity for super sleek styling.

                    Which of your CHI dryers (including this one) have HIGH blow dryer settings, where the air comes out faster? (It would be helpful if you included product descriptions in your ads.)

                      Ultra CHI Pro Dryer, CHI Pro Dryer, and the CHI Rocket Dryer have high/low settings. The CHI Touch Screen Dryer has a touch screen setting so you can control the air flow from High to Low.

                      CHI and Ultra CHI dryers are not dual voltage and will require both a converter and plug adapter (not included) for international use.
