I Love Chi

By Del

from Louisiana

Comments about Chi Ceramic 1'' Hairstyling Iron:

I got my first Chi iron (basic black one) about 20 years ago. I used that thing almost daily for 12 years, before it died on me. I next bought the Chi Turbo (the one where you can change the heat settings). I purchased that 12 years ago (my original one was still working when I bought it) and still have it. Finally I purchased a cute teal and black Chi Ultra about 7 years ago. That one came with a silver heat resistant carry bag for it. Even though my first one died, my last two have been going strong for years. Not only do they make the best flat irons (they don't damage my hair and the result will last all day, sometimes even a few days), they make amazing hair products. I hope the company never changes their core products or goes out of business, because I really love their products.

    Quickly heats up and keeps heat. Doesn't make hair as straight as I'd like and even with good products used, it didn't stay straight all day.

                    Comments about Chi Ceramic 1'' Hairstyling Iron:

                    I've always been the one to purchase the less expensive flat irons sold at big box stores. After reading the reviews on a fashion blog, I decided to splurge on the Chi and I'm so happy I did! What a difference! I pulled my hair back in a wet pony and had the "bump" when I decided to try the iron for the first time. It was so easy to use and took the bump out immediately without having to go over more than once. Only downside is that it does not have the auto-shut off feature. Highly recommend.

                    • Q:

                      I am trying to decide between Ultra vs not. I have seen this response from you to others: "Ultra CHI tools are essentially identical in craftsmanship and materials to CHI tools - the only difference is that they are available in limited edition colors and patterns that are exclusive to Ulta Beauty. :-)" I have also seen you say "this styling iron has ceramic plates - no tourmaline. Ultra CHI styling irons feature tourmaline ceramic plates which are ionic to infuse hair with moisture and shine. " I am confused by this conflicting information. Is the Ultra different from this one or not? Is it just a cosmetic difference in colors, etc. or a functional difference?
