    Comments about Chi Ceramic Hairstyling Iron:

    The more expensive models of CHI probably have various heat and temperature settings. I exchanged mine for an even less expensive modern tools one that had temperature settings. With my thin fragile hair I needed one that doesn't get too hot.

        I have had this product before and the only reason I had to get a new one was because I dropped my other one on a tile floor. :( I had the old one for 8 years, it worked fantastic just like this one.

        I have extremely curly and frizzy hair, but with only one use with this straighter my hair is pin straight and perfect. I always get complements on my hair after I use this product. Highly recommend this product.

                Loving my Chi, when I take it through my hair it doesn't pull. My hair now is smooth and has a nice shine. The cord swivels so it doesn't get all bunched up.

                  Comments about Chi Ceramic Hairstyling Iron:

                  I owned my Chi for over ten years. Being nearly 20 years old now, and having it given to me when I was 8, I can say that I put this iron through the ringer. I have frizzy, curly hair that would wear out hair ties and snap them after one use. Over the years it has thinned a bit and swimming has fried the intense curl out a little, but I'm still snapping hair ties and it did the job all the same. In the hands of my aunt, the professional hairdresser who chose it for me, it took roughly fifteen to twenty minutes to cover my entire head of hair, that was at the time about three feet long. In my hands it took a while longer, but once I got the hang of of it, I never took longer than 20 minutes either. Over the many years, I've had my hair above my shoulders, at my shoulders, to mid back, lower back, but mostly it has been past my butt. Alwasy being tall and having hair I could sit on for most of my life, I can safely say that this iron took on a LOT of hair over the years. I can also say that this iron works well with all different lengths of hair. I'm embarrassed to say that it even lasted through accidentally being left on ALL day long about three times within the last year of its life. This iron worked well for me up until it died when I believe the swivel cord eventually wore out, seeing as the power would turn on and off as I moved it. The plates never scratched, the hinge never lost stability, and the heat never waned. (If it did it was so little I, who knew it very well, did not notice.) It held up being lugged around in suitcases, backpacks, and tote bags the same as it did when it lived (and fell off of) my bathroom counter.

                    Comments about Chi Ceramic Hairstyling Iron:

                    I have had this Chi for 7 years and two months. Just this month, it has begun to go out. Sad day. I'll fix it or purchase another quite soon! I straighten my hair and it stays straight all day. There may be a few hairs that start to bend because of how they fall on my shoulders, but compared to other straighteners I've tried, it's no big deal at all. The Chi adds smoothness and softness to my hair. Sometimes I need texturizer to then keep a pony tail in. I also do some crimping and curling with it. It takes some practice but the crimping and curling hold super well without product. I absolutely LOVE my Chi!!
