Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

Like many others reported the heating element in this dryer broke at about one year. After ulta helped me track down my receipt it was exchanged for another that I have been using for over a year but makes a funny noise when I use it. I would say it is great that it is quiet but can't really because of this. For a hairdryer that costs about $100 this thing should do everything shy of making me breakfast but not the case. Unless you upgraded from a hairdryer you bought in the 80's I'm afraid you won't notice a ton of difference with power, frizz, dry time etc.. not for the price at least. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. CHI should discontinue this model and remake it because obviously something wad made incorrectly inside of it causing so many of these to malfunction. I'm disappointed it's still on the shelves.

      I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mom 2 years ago. It broke at Christmas time the year after, do I went to try to exchange it only to be told that if I didn't have the receipt I couldn't. This was at the Peabody location, so I went to the much nicer Everette location and exchanged it no problem. However, now it broke AGAIN after 1 year. Cheap and a rip off.

          This blow dryer suddenly stopped blowing hot air. I am shy away from the year warranty, therefore, I'm stuck with it. I should have bought better quality and I wouldn't be in this position today.

          Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

          I had read many of the reviews of this product, and bought it with hesitation, as I was afraid of the motor going out, as many others have stated. So far, I have not had any issues with the motor (but still have the receipt and original packaging, just in case). I love that this hair dryer dries hair quickly - and that says a lot, as I have heavy, thick hair that takes forever to dry. I also love that it is quiet, and am pleasantly surprised at how soft, smooth, and shiny my hair feels afterward, with very little product. My former hair dryers have not done that. So far, the only thing I dislike about this hair dryer is that you can't really choose the heat temperature. You only have hi - hot, and low - warm. I tend to prefer hi - warm. The hi - hot setting is extremely hot and even burns my hands when I am not careful. Having said that, I still like this hair dryer, and would recommend it.

              I like the quietness of the hair dryer and its very functional, however, personally I am returning due to the low rating of the life span of it which I rather use the money on something that will last me longer as it is averaged to stop working from 8 months to 2 years.

                What is the benefit of having the low EMF?

                • Staff Expert

                  A:

                  EMF stands for electromagnetic force, and the "low EMF" labeling indicates that the motor in your hair dryer produces a lower-than average amount of EMF radiation. EMF radiation is very common and generally harmless, but in high concentrations it is suspected to contribute to health problems.

                  To remove the back air vent, twist the vent toward the direction labeled "open". This should release the vent and allow you to pull the vent out.

                  A:

                  Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer and Ultra CHI Pop Pink Dryer feature identical features other than the color. Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer and Ultra CHI Pop Pink Dryer are both 1300 watts, while Miss Universe Professional Dryer is 1800 watts (which means that Miss Universe has more powerful airflow for quicker drying time). All three dryers are ionic, which helps to reduce drying time and to keep hair smooth and shiny.
