        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!!!

        • Q:

          Is 392 degrees a standard temperature for all flat irons? Thanks.

          • Staff Expert

            A:

            It depends on the model. CHI offers some models with adjustable temperature settings. For their models with non-adjustable temperature, those heat to 392 degrees F.

        • Q:

          I have used the 1in. Chi for years and LOVE it. But I was wondering if I could use the 1 1/2 inch on my hair since it is cut above my shoulders now. My shortes layer is about 3 1/2 to 4 inches. The reason I wanted the larger is because with the smaller one my hair flips under. I just can't seem to get the ends straight.

            A:

            We typically recommend the larger 1-1/2" model for those with longer lengths and/or thick, difficult to style hair, though you can certainly try 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.
