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

    Absolutely destroyed my hair the very first use. I had a Beauty Labs flat iron that gets extremely hot, but this flat iron completely FRIED the ends of my hair. And I mean fried. Don't recommend if you want to keep healthy hair!!!

    I have thick, frizzy, dry hair. The product works well, completely straightening my hair and gets very hot, but I don't like that there are not multiple heat settings to know the exact temperature.

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

    So I wanted a premium straightener that wouldn't get all dirty and ineffective. I saw the email ad for the straighteners and jumped on the opportunity. The first time out the box amazed me and left me speechless. I plan to buy all of the products that go along with CHI straighteners to keep my hair looking amazing!

    Pouch too small to fit straightener

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

    I like this product, however the pouch that it came in is WAY too small (hence the 4 star review). I really want to give this 5 stars. I guess I can place the straightener on top of the pouch? But how am I supposed to store it and keep it clean when not in use? I'm disappointed that the storage pouch was too small, but I like the straightener itself.

      • 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.

          A:

          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.
