    Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic Hairstyling Iron:

    I have thick wavy hair and have had this flat iron for a few years. It has never seemed to get hot enough with one heat setting, as I have to straighten my hair 3 times after blow drying it to get it as straight as I like it. It is definitely time to replace it as it is not as hot as it used to get. I can't tell if it is on when I'm straightening my hair. I heard CHI products were great, so decided to purchase this product. If you want a CHI, make sure to purchase one of the better models, not the Ulta Exclusive model.

      My hair did not glide thru this flat iron. It was okay for straightening, but when I tried to wave my hair it was a big fail. So this is going back.

          Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic Hairstyling Iron:

          I bought Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic Hairstyling Iron less than a year ago and have nothing but issues and I am supremely disappointed. I have owned a few CHI products and have never experienced such poor quality. First off, it get WAY too hot and has no temperature dial, it has burnt my hair in SEVERAL spots to the point where I can't even use it on the thinner parts of my hair (bangs, hair at the nape of my neck/temples) which render it almost useless. However the worst is that on separate occasions I have turned the flat iron OFF and come back to realize it was still fully heated, once scorching our counter top. And now, only one side of the iron heats up at all. I have been a long time fan, but this may be the last CHI I ever buy. I just threw it away as it is totally useless with one overly hot panel functioning and a hazard to boot!

                              You will need a plug adapter that fits the outlet of your destination country. No need for a voltage converter. Plug the CHI into the adapter, and the adapter into the outlet. :-)

                              For starters, the Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic flat iron is "Ultra CHI" branded vs. the classic "CHI" brand of the other iron in question. What does this mean? Not to worry, Ultra CHI products are still made by CHI, but CHI collaborates with Ulta Beauty to create exclusive tools with you in mind! For example, this red 1" iron comes with a white thermal mat that you will not find with the other iron or any other CHI tool elsewhere. On the flip side, because the other iron is "CHI" branded, CHI can back a two-year warranty on it vs. the one-year warranty on the red iron.
