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

By kkrebs

Cons

  • Limited Settings

Best Uses

  • Long Hair

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.

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

      Love this straightener. Heats up fast, and the thicker plates allow for more hair to straighten faster. My hair was shiny and soft. Only downfall is it is very lightweight (which is good) except it feels kind of flimsy to me. May jut be because I am klutz and drop things a lot. I think it would break easily if you are carless.

            • 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.

              I have very thin but curly hair, would this product work well on my hair or would it be too hot. I don't like to wear my hair curly so I straighten it daily and don't want it to get super dried out.

                A:

                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:
