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

    My previous review was not all that great, but once I switched up to lighter products (Design Essentials Serum) my hair came out sleek, straight, and shining. Just like I wanted it to. Another plus was that it didn't revert until I washed it. :)

    Takes some getting used to if you've always had the 1/2" size. Still not totally sold in it. May return for smaller one.

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

    I've heard that Chi produces some of the best flat irons and I watched several YouTube videos in which users had great success. However, for me, this product was no better than flat irons I've used at half the cost. I'm African-American with natural curly hair (type 3a-3b for those into curl pattern typing). My hair resists being straight and will reverse in a heart beat. I thought that by using a more expensive flat iron I would get better results than by beauty supply ceramic coated iron. I saw no difference with this one. I will say that it could be the styling products I used that caused my hair to be weighed down and not get the best results. In my attempt to prevent reversion, I used a mousse while my hair was still wet. In the future I'll try it with just the Chi or some other type heat protectanct and see if that makes a difference.

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

      I've had this for over a year now. I have been straightening my hair for the last 17 years people, and this one has done the most damage. The plates make my frizzy curly hair so smooth and shiny...it really is a thing of beauty! BUT you absolutely must use a very very good heat protector with this. I was using Redken with it before and it was getting really damaged. Now I've switched to Alterna and it seems to be really helping.

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

          I love this product. It cut down the time I do my hair; instead of spending an hour straightening it now takes me 25 minutes. I have long, thick wavy hair and this flat iron makes it look like I got my hair professionally done. I don't like the color red which seems to be the only color they sell this flat iron in but it didn't hinder me from buying this product and falling in love with it. The only con that I've found is that I can't control the temperature, there's only an on/off switch.

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

          I have super curly thick Puerto Rican/ Caucasian hair (both sides with curly hair) and most things do absolutely nothing with my hair. Literally returned 6 different flat irons before I found this one. It is my holy grail flat iron.

            Was a little disappointed that it didn't have a control to set the temperature where I wanted it. To me it's to hot and will probably do some damage to my hair.
