      Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron:

      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!

            I purchased a CHI at the recommendation of my stylist. That was almost 10 years ago. I used my red CHI almost every day for that 10 years...and just now I need to replace it! I definitely got my money's worth. Buying myself a new one right now.

                      I bought this for niece who has alot of thick hair. It was too time consuming to straighten her hair with a two year old in the house. A round brush and dryer were much easier and faster on her hair.

                      Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron:

                      This is the first Chi flat iron I've ever purchased. I've heard how wonderful they are, so I figured I'd give it a shot after the life of my Sedu flat iron ended. It's easy to use, just plug it in. It heats up very quickly which is nice. This iron does not snag hair, which is a plus. The reason why I rate this so low is because I have fine hair. This Chi has only one temperature setting. The temperature was way too hot for my hair and ended up damaging it. So I do not recommend if you have fine or thin hair.

                            This iron features ceramic plates infused with tourmaline, which emits negative ions to penetrate hair from the inside out, infusing it with moisture and shine. This iron does not generate steam and should be used on dry hair only.

                            The plates are squeeze sensitive, so they will touch if you squeeze hard enough.
