    Comments about Chi G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hair Styling Iron:

    I have been using CHI for decades. CHI is not owning up to their name in the last 5 or 8 years. I have purchased many different types and hoped this one would be the change I needed. I was looking for high settings that would actually reach 425 in temp. but it fails to do so. It never seems to get hot enough. Moving on to another brand at this point.

        I LOVE this straightener! I have very thick and course hair and this straightener does wonders. I also love how you can adjust the temperature. I use this straightener not only to straighten my hair but to curl it as well. This straightener is definitely a must for me and i would recommend it to anyone with all hair types!

            Comments about Chi G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hair Styling Iron:

            This is the third CHI I have owned over several years. During the first months, it seemed to work great. Around month 5, I started to notice my hair changing texture, drying, etc... After a couple weeks of this, my hair literally burned off and fell to the ground when it touched the flat iron. The iron was malfunctioning causing extremely high temperatures despite the setting. My hair was burned. I will note Ulta returned my money in full even after the appropriate date and CHI sent several hydrating products for me to use on my damaged hair. I do appreciate the customer service, however, I can not recommend this product at all.

                  Unfortunately I bought this iron twice because I thought the first one was defective. The heat settings would constantly lower every couple minutes and nothing was consistent. It kept pulling my hair and forcing me to go over spots again. My hair is very curly but it doesn't take more than three tries to straight a piece of hair, so a normal Chi is perfect. With this tool however, I found it kept lowering the heat settings and made it absolutely difficult to use.

                    I use this product several days per week. What is great about this product is that it is light weight, it has various temperature settings for all hair types, and the ceramic and titanium plates provide a smooth glide on your hair when straightening it. I really have not had any bad experiences with the product since my recent purchase.

                    Comments about Chi G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hair Styling Iron:

                    I have had two CHI's before but when my last one stopped working I decided to try this version instead. I thought the adjustable temperature would be a nice feature. My hair seems to be more dry like this straightener is frying it. I use this straightener on 350 or 360 usually. The original CHI which is not adjustable goes to 395 and it never damaged my hair. Also, about two months after I got this it started shutting off. It was too late to return to ULTA and so I am contemplating going to CHI about it. Sometimes it shuts off 5 or 6 times in 20 minutes. I don't know why it shuts off when I set the temp low. It shouldn't be overheating, although I will say I believe it gets way hotter than the temp it is set on. I wish I had gone with the original CHI like I had before.

                      This straightener is absolutely amazing. I had always researched CHI straighteners and I had always wanted one but I never had enough money to get one. I always just bought drug store straighteners that were like $25 dollars. I had a 20% off coupon for this and I am SO GLAD I got it. It's the most amazing straightener I've ever used. You only have to go over your hair one time with this and it's completely straight.

                          Both have digital display and feature adjustable temperature settings. The main difference is that the G2 has ceramic plates and the Miss Universe iron has titanium plates (heats up faster, higher ionic charge for quicker styling).
