Not what I expected from CHI...

By Long Island Girl

from Montauk, New York

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

I was very disappointed with this product, I have never used CHI in the past, and believe I wont be using it again, there is no way you can control the temperature in this flat iron which is not good at all, also I have fine and almost straight hair so it shouldn't take that long for me to fully straightened my hair but with this iron I had to do three or four times in the same spot for it to look a little straight. It didn't work for me at all and because I bought it through Ulta and they give the free gift they said you can't return it, so I am stuck with this one.

      I was excited to receive this as a gift. Unfortunately, when I took the straightener out of the box I realized that there was no way of adjusting the heat and that I'll need it to get much hotter than 390 degrees.

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

            The Ultra Chi is so great. I love that it heats up quickly and straightens my natural 4a/4b WoC hair efficiently without making it limp or crunchy/tangled. You really cannot use a lot of product on your hair with this flat iron! You have to follow the directions of your hair protectant (aka Just a dime.) Saves me so much time when wearing straight styles.

              I use flat irons everyday. I was very excited about this flat iron when I ordered it, however; the first time I uses it I was extremely disappointed. You have no control over the heat setting and it did not get hot enough for my hair. I had to go over each piece at least 5 times for it to get straight. Mid day my hair looked like it had never been straightened to begin with. It was awful.

                  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.

                    Yes, this tool works wonderfully for all hair types and textures! It reaches a maximum temperature of 392°F to quickly style hair, and its ceramic plates contain tourmaline, which emits negative ions to smooth and add moisture and shine to hair.

                    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.
