          This iron did not work on my curly, frizzy hair. If you have curly or thick hair, it will not work right. Chi's used to be such good quality irons and they're not the same anymore.

                    Comments about Ultra CHI Red 1" Ceramic Hairstyling Iron:

                    Got this for Christmas and it's already dead. One of the heat blades stopped working. Disgrace to this brand and to Ulta. Really dissatisfied with this company overall. Single heat setting makes thin hair really difficult not to fry.

                          A:

                          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.

                          A:

                          Yes, the Ultra CHI Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron features infrared technology.

                          The G2 Iron (Item #: 2262629) also features infrared technology, but unlike the Ultra CHI irons, the G2 has adjustable temperature controls with LCD readout, titanium-infused ceramic plates (ideal for quick styling of coarse, textured and difficult to style hair types), and a 2-year warranty (vs. Ultra CHI's 1-year). The G2 also reaches a higher maximum temperature - 425 degrees F (vs. Ultra CHI's 392 degrees). If you have coarse, thick, textured, and/or hard-to-style hair, you may prefer the G2. We hope this helps! :-)
