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

I had a 1 inch Chi for about 7 yrs and it still works well. Thought I'd get one with wider plates this time. I love it!! It just glides through my hair, easy and quick to style. Plus it was on on sale for a wonderful price.

      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

            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.

                  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:
