            I blow dry my hair every other day and have fine, thick, wavy hair. This dryer can take up to twenty minutes to dry my hair. I was using a cheaper brand and was much happier. I use a Chi straightener and have always loved it, so I assumed I could trust the brand for dryers too. I was wrong. I would not reccomend this product. My mom who has very thin hair mentioned that it DOUBLED her dry time when she visited the last time. She doesn't like it so much she brings her own dryer.

                Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

                I have a real aversion to the way most hair dryers sound and this one is one that I can take. It is very quiet and the noise it does make is very tolerable. It works quickly. It cuts my drying time by about 1/2. I don't know why but it also doesn't dry my hair out like other heat products do on my hair, which is great since I am a blond now...

                I got this product on sale, otherwise I would say its a little out of my price range. Although, I buy a new hair dryer about every 10 years so it's not the worst thing to invest in.

                    Stopped working in less than 1 year. No longer blows hot air. In reading several other reviews of exactly the same problem - you would think a formerly well trusted brand would want to fix the problem.

                      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

                      I have used this dryer daily for just over one year. For the first year- it worked well, and dried my hair faster than my previous dryer. Now it only blows cold air. I've tried cleaning the back filter, pressing the cold air button and releasing it, and resetting the GFCI switch on my electric outlet. Nothing has worked, but this dryer is too expensive to only last one year.

                        I have had two Chi Hair Dryers. I loved them until they both stopped blowing hot air after about a year. I thought the first one was a flaw but now my second one had done the same. These hair dryers are too expensive to only last a year. I won't be buying another one.

                            To remove the back air vent, twist the vent toward the direction labeled "open". This should release the vent and allow you to pull the vent out.

                            Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer and Ultra CHI Pop Pink Dryer feature identical features other than the color. Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer and Ultra CHI Pop Pink Dryer are both 1300 watts, while Miss Universe Professional Dryer is 1800 watts (which means that Miss Universe has more powerful airflow for quicker drying time). All three dryers are ionic, which helps to reduce drying time and to keep hair smooth and shiny.
