I am so thrilled with this flat iron! I was tentative to buy it because no one had reviewed it and it's not available in stores. But I'm so glad I gave it a chance. I recently purchased the baby bliss ultra thin titanium iron and wasn't impressed, so I returned it and got this one instead. The plates glide down my thick curly/wavy hair so smoothly, and it doesn't snag. It's pretty lightweight as well. I love that you can adjust the temperature in 10 degree increments. The digital display shows you the temperature of the flat iron as it's heating up, (or cooling off) so you know when it's ready to use. The dual voltage is also a nice perk if you like to travel out of the country. I haven't had it very long so I don't know how long it lasts, but so far so good.
My husband bought this for me for my birthday.. after lots of looking and comparing I decided to go with this one.. I was super excited when I got it.. I used it.. my hair looks damaged and straw like, mind you this is after one use.. it snags my hair and pulls it out.. needless to say I will be retiring it this weekend

It takes one time to glide the flat iron down my hair for it to be slick and straight. I have thick, curly hair and I was amazed!

I've been straightening my hair for years, and have never been able to get it to look the way I wanted. I have super thick, curly, and dry hair which can be hard to style and keep straight as well. Styling also tends to dry it out even more, which isn't great. BUT, this straightener is AMAZING. It makes my hair so soft and smooth, and makes it stick straight in half the time I'm used to. I'm so please with this purchase. 150% worth every penny!

I'm a Chi owner for the past 20+ years. Just never brought myself to switch. I have long thick, curly/wavy underneath hair. I've never gotten it completely straight without help, because I always missed a few or spots. But tried my new Chi tonight, and it was perfect!!

I hope, I don't regret this comment but as soon I got it, I tried it. I set the temperature at 370 because I have thin long hair and wow I love it, just with one pass it was straight. It did not fry my hair. I could probably go lower too.

Daily use. Even with heat protectant this fried my ends. More breakage was noticed and split ends. My hair felt course and fried. Do not recommend.

This flatiron is the worst, does not straighten good at all. My cheap redline flatiron straightens way better. I'm hoping I can return it, don't have a hundred & something dollars to waste.

I have had approximately 4 flat irons in the past 5 years, one of them was just the regular Chi flat iron. This one is the absolute best! My hair looks and feels like it does when I come from the salon. It does not frizz when it is humid or raining outside. It stays straight, silky, and sleek all day! Highly recommend!!

It heats up super quickly and i love the adjustable temperature setting! It is way smoother than my last CHI straightener. Makes my hair super soft and shiny.

Honestly I don't have much to compare to, because I've never owned any nice straighteners before, but this left my hair incredibly smooth without doing much damage. Love...

I have fine, thin hair with a wave that turns to frizz in any kind of humidity. My previous dried out my hair and left it looking dead. This smooths and shines and stays relatively frizz free.

Okay, so I have been exclusively using flat irons for 15 years and this is the best one I have used to date. My hair is fine but thick and I need something that will style it quickly (or in a reasonable time frame), which is why I gravitate towards titanium plates. This flat iron gets the job done. I do not have to put it on the highest setting (which is a first) for it to straighten my hair in one pass. It leaves my hair silky smooth, shiny and the style lasts perfectly all day long. To tell you more about the product, I will list the pros and cons below:
-Temperature is adjustable by 10 degree increments (numerous heat setting options).
-Device remembers what heat setting you used from last time upon turning on.
-Temperature gauges and power button are in an area that will not accidentally be pressed.
-Titanium plates heat up very quickly and are like butter and do not pull at the ends of my hair.
-I have not noticed breakage with this product.
-1 hour shut off and dual voltage ability (DO NOT USE A CONVERTER).
-Product is built very sturdy and the rounded tips make it great for creating curls/waves.
-The heat is controlled at the end of the device by the plates and does not travel up to the handle.
-If you do not hold your hair while you straighten it, you may experience some minor tugging (this does not happen often for me, just if I am not paying attention).
-The end of the iron can get quite not (not the worst I've experienced, but keep this in mind for making curls/waves).
I do just want to add that out of all the research I did before purchasing a new flat iron is that CHI seems to be very reputable. I did not come across a single review that mentioned their product breaking before the warranty period of 2 years. This also added to my desire to try this product out and I have been extremely pleased. If you do try this out, I hope you are as pleased as I am :)

I bought this HOT straightener to curl my hair quickly. My hairdresser used it to curl all of the bridesmaids in my daughters wedding! It is fantastic!
Jess from Indiana
After using a cheap flat iron for years, this one is a life saver. The titanium plates are awesome. I have thick, long hair that I couldn't ever get to stay straight. With this flat iron my hair stays straight all day. I got this flat iron as a Christmas present so I haven't gotten to use it in in high humidity weather yet, but I have confidence that it will work far better than my last. My hair is now shiny, frizz-free, and most importantly STRAIGHT!

I have fine hair and this works great for me on the low setting, heats up very quick. My first Chi, and I would definitely buy again.
Denise from San Antonio
I love this! I finally gave in and bought a Chi and am so happy with this one!! It's great. My hair is shiny and smooth in no time even in humid Texas which is hard with my frizzy mess.

I was so excited for this. I finally got the chance to invest in a good flat iron and it fell flat...i have to keep going over the same section of hair over and over again.
do NOT buy this if you have long, thick, curly hair!
will be returning first thing tomorrow.

I honestly have no complaints at this point. It heats up ridiculously fast. I don't have to go over the same pieces over & over again. One swipe does the job. I'm ready faster than ever & it leaves a healthy shine.. Very happy with this product.😃

This product takes the frizz out of my hair and leaves it shiney.
