Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

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.

      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

      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.

      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

      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.

              Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

              Product has a 1 year warranty and around that time, your dryer will start only blowing cold air! Prior to that, it worked very well on my thick hair, but at this price, I cannot justify this as a good investment or product. Manufacturer must address quality issues with the motor only blowing cold air.

                  Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

                  I bought a Dryer from Chi, and it broke after 10 months. Since I bought it at a salon they replaced it for free and assured me that it was a fluke and would never happen again. I only had the replacement one for 2 years and it broke in the exact same way, and they said there was nothing they could do because it was outside that warrantee. I loved the way it worked, but when you spend that much on a product it had better last longer than a year or two. Also I took extremely great care of it, I never wound the cord up, I always unplugged it, and I only used it once a day when it was supposedly designed for salon use. Also in addition I have their straightener and I am on my second one of those as well, that was covered under the warrantee the first time, and know I am just waiting for it to break as well.

                    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.
