    Comments about Chi G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hair Styling Iron:

    I have used it every other day as it holds the style beautifully. Heats up in less than 40 seconds and gives me an awesome beach look. With the controls on the inside there is absolutely no chance of turning it off by accident like my old one. I just can't say enough about it, other than it is a professional product and well worth every penny....

          I've used Chi's in the past and they were my go-to. but for the past few years I've used a Babyliss pro, which just died :/ so I got this one because it was on sale. however, I tried it for 2+ weeks and just couldn't deal with it anymore. It got hot and stayed hot, but didn't get hot enough for my liking. I have super surly frizzy hair and I like mine pin straight, and this didn't do that for me. My babyliss heats up to 450 and this one only goes to 425, so I don't know if that was the issue. but I returned it and will be getting a new babyliss asap!

          Comments about Chi G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hair Styling Iron:

          As my headline states, I absolutely love this flat iron! I have natural, spiral curled hair that is fine but tightly curled when left to its own devices. I used this flat iron along with the It's a 10 hair care line and my hair was silky smooth, feather light, with body and what I call like to call moveability.

          The temperature control worked as described and was out of the way, so you aren't likely to accidentally change the setting while you're using it. The plates didn't snag my hair and there was no burnt smell left on my hair even though I used a fairly high setting on my heat resistant, frizz-prone hair. The curved barrel allows you to use it as a curling iron as well. The curls were really nice and lasted all day.

              The G2 Ceramic and Titanium flat iron is a good investment,I love it's weight,it does a great job for the long shafts of my thick hair, but the housing is to thick to straighten my roots. Had to use another flat iron to straighten my roots. The G2 does give a great bump, and curl to my ends of my hair.

                I hesitated about buying this flat iron because of the price and never having owned or used a flat iron before, but I am SO glad I decided to get it. I had no trouble learning to use it and it makes styling my fine/color treated hair ten times easier and faster than my old curling iron. Wish I'd gotten it sooner!!!

                        A:

                        The G2 reaches the highest temperature (425 degrees F), and high temperatures offer more effective styling of coarse, thick hair. If she has long hair, she may prefer the 1.25" plate size G2 (Item #: 2280969), which provides quicker styling of longer lengths.

                        A:

                        Larger plates are ideal for easier styling of longer hair lengths. Since your hair is short, the original G2 with 1" plates should be suitable, though you can really use either model, depending on your own personal preference.

                      Does this product only set to the 3 preset temperatures or can I go lower than 370 perhaps by 5 or 10 degree intervals to a temperature of 340?

                        Temperature settings are adjustable beyond the three presets, so you can customize the temperature you use!

                        Due to safety requirements, the plates do not extend to the very edge of the iron.

                        Both have digital display and feature adjustable temperature settings. The main difference is that the G2 has ceramic plates and the Miss Universe iron has titanium plates (heats up faster, higher ionic charge for quicker styling).

                        A:

                        The main difference between CHI G2 and the original CHI styling iron is that the G2 features adjustable temperature settings so that you can customize styling by hair type, plus a higher maximum temperature, which is especially great for thick, coarse hair.

                        Original CHI: max temp 392 degrees F; nonadjustable heat settings

                        CHI G2: max temp 425 degrees F; 3 heat settings: fine hair, medium hair, thick/coarse hair
