    Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

    I have had two Chi Hair Dryers. I loved them until they both stopped blowing hot air after about a year. I thought the first one was a flaw but now my second one had done the same. These hair dryers are too expensive to only last a year. I won't be buying another one.

    I love this dryer. Fastest I've ever had. It is a bit on the heavy side but not excessively heavy...just a great quality dryer. The cord is heavy-duty, too.

      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

      I've always wanted a dryer like the one my hairstylist uses....and this is the one. It's simple to use with a high/low switch and a cold air button. That's all I need. The extra accessories (large diffuser and isolating head) will come in handy for others....at this point I don't need them. Loved the sale price!!

              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.

                        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.
