        Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

        This dryer never really impressed me, I have long curly/wavy hair and I found that my little Hot Tools Ionic travel dryer made my hair shinier and dried it faster than the Chi.

        All of that aside, I used the Chi dryer on and off for 2 years and the heating element stopped working this morning. There is a serious design flaw with this product, I wish I saw these reviews before making the purchase.

                  Got this from the hubby for Christmas. Have always just used cheap blow dryers, had no idea the real difference this makes, I no longer have to flat iron my hair just use this and a paddle brush and my hair looks amazing, straight and shiny with tons of volume, also with no product I have no frizz or static, added the chi silk and results were even more amazing. I know blow dry every day and am totally addicted!

                  I owned two of the Ultra Chi Blow dryer, one with no problems (the older one) and the other I had to replace twice (but of course not within warranty period). I won't buy another. One plug went bad and this one just quit blowing hot air. I'm looking elsewhere for a quality dryer.

                      I have dry, wavy yet thin hair. I have always used lower end hair dryers and then straightened my hair. This hair dryer makes it look like I used a straightening iron afterwords. My hair is shiny and healthy looking after blow drying!

                                To remove the back air vent, twist the vent toward the direction labeled "open". This should release the vent and allow you to pull the vent out.

                                Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer and Ultra CHI Pop Pink Dryer feature identical features other than the color. Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer and Ultra CHI Pop Pink Dryer are both 1300 watts, while Miss Universe Professional Dryer is 1800 watts (which means that Miss Universe has more powerful airflow for quicker drying time). All three dryers are ionic, which helps to reduce drying time and to keep hair smooth and shiny.
