              I didn't feel like this dryer was that much better than a much less expensive brand. It quit blowing hot air after 2 1/2 years. I do not use it daily. That is longer than some reviews, but for the price, I would have expected it to last longer.

                My only issue with the Chi hair dryers is that they don't last more than a year. I use the dryer almost everyday and it takes me about 20 minutes to complete drying my hair, so maybe that's why. I do repurchase a new Chi dryer then the current one dies.

                      Had high expectations since the hair stylist in the store recommended it. I keep my hair routine at a minimum during the week trying not to fry my hair out too much so the dryer is on for literally less than 5 minutes. Cold hair started blowing right at the 1 year mark. For the price you would think I would have gotten longer use since I barely use it. I'm going back to the $40.00 dryer that lasted 5 years.

                        Bought this because my Sylist was using it on me. I also choose this one because it was not cheap nor the most expensive. It is fairly lightweight. I noticed it cuts my time of drying by about 20 percent. The two end nozzles it comes with work great and I now have less frizz by using them instead of using a dryer that has nothing on the end. I really like the thicker cord that comes on it...my other one always got tangled! Not the case with this one. Overall very happy.

                        For the time that this dryer worked, I was pretty happy with it. Unfortunately, it quit working after about 13 months of purchasing it. It would only blow cold air. There is only a one year warranty, so go figure it quits right after that time is up. This dryer is too expensive to die that quickly. I will not be buying this brand again.

                              This is the second CHI blow dryer I have purchased and the same problem has occurred. It hasn't even been a year and it no longer blows hot air.

                              Ridiculous!

                                    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.

                                    No, CHI and Ultra CHI dryers do not have retractable cords.
