    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 :)

              Was given this iron as a gift and within 8 months stopped working. Because I didn't have a receipt, the company did not replace or fix the iron after sending them the $15 they requested. Poor, poor customer service!!!

              Not what I expected from CHI...

              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.

                  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.
