      Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1-1/2 Inch Flat Iron:

      This flat iron is amazing. It heats very quickly and makes my fine, fly away hair look perfect. I have colored, high lighted hair that's pretty processed but the Chi makes it smooth and shiny in minutes.

          Such a shame...I've always had chi flat irons, and always had good luck. I purchased this iron because I wanted a slightly larger pad, but it lasted for 5 uses and stopped getting hot. It worked great when it worked, but for the money...ridiculous.

            Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1-1/2 Inch Flat Iron:

            I have owned my fair share of CHI hair straighteners and I have to say this is the best one that I have owned thus far.

            I love that it heats up to 410 degrees and it heats up quickly.

            I also love the 1 1/2 in plates because my hair is pretty long.

            The only thing that I wish CHI would start doing is having heat settings. My baby hairs only need about 300 degrees if not less. Other than that, I love this and highly recommend it for anybody with thick curly hair or frizzy hair :)

                    What is the difference between ceramic and titanium?

                      A:

                      Titanium plates reach a higher temperature than ceramic plates, which makes titanium tools ideal for thick, coarse hair textures. Titanium is a metal, whereas ceramic is not and can be gentler on the hair when using thermal styling tools.

                      A:

                      If your hair is long, you may benefit from using the 1-1/2" inch iron, since it will reduce styling time for you. If you have medium or shorter length hair, the 1" size would be most suitable. Both sizes work well to straighten and smooth hair of all types and textures.

                      A:

                      Both sizes of Ultra CHI Flat Iron work well for hair curling as well as straightening. If you desire bigger, fuller curls, pick this product (1-1/2"). If you have shoulder-length or shorter hair, we recommend using the 1" iron.
