I've owned two - when the heating element died on the first one Ulta replaced the dryer for me. Thumbs up to them for customer service. Second one just died and Ulta will replace but I don't want another CHI.

    Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

    I have purchased 3 Chi dryers. The first one is 16 years old and still working. It is the black pro. I purchased a red pro dryer 2 years ago. After 9 months, it would only blow cold air. Ulta told me that the return policy was 30 days. I purchased a 2nd dryer and after 8 months it quit blowing hot air. I wont purchase another Chi product. Customer service was a nightmare. It seems that this product has a known issue that needs fixing.

      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

      I use everyday. I owned a CHI for 16 years and kept the filter cleaned finally it stopped working. This CHI was on sale and I love the red. I love that it blow dried my hair quickly and it's so quiet but powerful. Don't hesitate it's worth every penny.

      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

      This is my second chi dryer I've owned. The first one I purchased I had for about 8 months and the cord sparked and then it was dead. I was able to return to the store and exchanged it for this red chi dryer. I had this one for about another 8 months and like most of the other reviews, it started to blow cold air.

      I was so disappointed, because it seem to work pretty well, but does not last. I'm thankful for the customer service at Ulta, because they allowed me to exchange this dryer also, but I did go with a completely different brand altogether. I owned a Conair dryer before and it lasted longer than the Chi's.

      I would not recommend this product.

      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

      I have owned my chi for almost 3 years. I'm a hairdresser and I have used mine more than an average person. I also used it all through beauty school. I see a lot of reviews saying it stopped working after a year or so and I luckily haven't experienced that

      Not worth the money

      By L.B.

      from Texas

      Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

      I decided to upgrade to the Chi hairdryer. I loved that it was quieter from my previous blow dryers. Unfortunately right the 2nd year of using this it stopped blowing hot air. Disappointed that my cheaper hair dryers were of better quality than this expensive dryer. Not worth the money.

          Comments about Ultra CHI Red Pro Dryer:

          I previously had the regular CHI Black Hair Dryer and it stopped working so I opted to purchase the red one. The low setting was really fast and my hair was flying all over the place, the on/off switch is in a bad place and when your trying to style your hair it gets turned off. Biggest disappointment was the lack of heat, I thought the previous CHI I had blew out more heat. I am thinking of exchanging it. Not very pleased with it.

            Owned for 11 months, use 3-5 times a week. Today it sparked and stopped blowing hot air. It looks like this is a well-known, but not addressed issue with the poor quality of this hair dryer. Super disappointed!

              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.

                A:

                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.
