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

    I had a chi iron once before and it pooped out after many years of daily use it was a smaller one, and now I have the 1 1/2 and I absolutely love it. I've been using cheap brand and didn't realize the difference till I switched back to the chi

          This product works best when you wash your hair and blow dry it the day of. I hope to soon buy the matching blow dryer!!

          Not great

          By Patty

          from Florida

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

          I had the original Chi flat iron that I purchased about 10 years ago and it just died so I thought I would buy this one. I guess they don't make them as good as they used to because I have to go over my hair a lot to get it straight. I do have long, thick wavy hair and it takes me an hour to straighten with this flat iron. So disappointed in Chi. So today I went and bought the Sedu flat iron and so far I like it.

                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. :)

                • Q:

                  i have very curly hair which is natural and it is also very thick and i am looking for a straightener to straighten my hair with that will do the job very quickly in(about 10 or 15 minutes). But in the past i have bought straighteners that wouldn't even begin to straighten my hair well and i wanna be sure once it's straightened that it will stay in and not start to curl again.

                    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.

                    This iron heats to a (non-adjustable) temperature of 392 degrees F, which is suitable for easy styling of almost all hair types. We recommend using a heat protectant styling product prior to using your heat styling tools, especially if you heat style your hair daily. CHI Iron Guard products are formulated to help shield hair from the damaging effects of heat styling:
