      Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron:

      I purchased a flat iron CHI, used it about 4-5 times and it stopped working for no reason. I stored it in the case, never dropped it or mishandled it. I returned it to Ulta and exchanged it for a second one. The second one was used 2-3 times, stored in case and never dropped it, and it too broke. The sales associate told me he didn't like Chi products. I ended up with a totally different product as I felt I gave the Chi a fair chance. I am very disappointed in the Chi flat iron.

            This is the best straightener ive ever used. It glides easily and never snags my hair. I also love how I can use it to curl my ends. My last straightener just made dents when I tried to do that.

              Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron:

              Overall, I think CHI is a great product, I had the same CHI straightener for almost 11 years and it was finally starting to "show its age" I bought the same one, yes its pricey, but I think its worth the money. I just hope this one lasts as long as my old one! The only thing I do not like is that you cannot adjust the temp, I know there are other ones out there that can but I didn't want to pay the extra 40 just for that function.

                    I bought this the day my last CHI flat iron went kaput. This one is a true gem. My older CHI was bigger and felt more cumbersome to use. This one seems much more lightweight, and has a really comfortable grip. My hands haven't felt awkward when using this one at all. Love it!

                              Miss Universe features titanium plates, while this iron features ceramic plates. Titanium heats up quicker and reaches a higher temperature than ceramic, so if you have very thick, coarse hair, we suggest using a titanium tool like Miss Universe rather than a ceramic tool.
