Comments about Chi Escape Cordless Hair Styling Iron:

I loved this little guy so much. Good quality and once it heated up worked as good as a full size Chi. My only problem was that the on/off switch was located right in the handle & i kept inadvertently turning it off. Yikes, i would then have to wait for it to heat up.

Comments about Chi Escape Cordless Hair Styling Iron:

I have this tool and as a professional stylists here is some ways I found to use it.
This tool is great for touch up's and on the go travel. Perfect on fine and medium hair.
If you hair is thick and coarse it will not replace a full size iron but will work to touch ups and to remove frizz.
Make sure you turn it on using the slide switch and then hit the button to set low- med-high.
I read other reviews and I think that is where people think it is not charging if you don't use the button to set temperature. I hope this helps!

    Eh

    By Amber

    from Georgia

    Comments about Chi Escape Cordless Hair Styling Iron:

    I was so excited when I ordered this straightener, because I'm constantly on the go and love the idea of it being cordless, however, I have shoulder length thick hair, and I can't even get halfway done with my hair before the battery dies (from fully charged used at 450F, it maybe lasts 30 minutes) . Super bummed, but will still use for touch ups on the go.

        Comments about Chi Escape Cordless Hair Styling Iron:

        I bought this flat iron knowing that it would only be for touch ups, it's not mint to replace your regular flat iron that you use at home. After taking this product back 3 times I was very upset, I really wanted it to work. The ones that I got would never even turn on, after charging all night it still wouldn't turn on. I am so disappointed.

        I would give a 5 if the battery life was longer. I have to recharge every day. I only use it 10 mins a day, O turn it off and it's dead the next morning.

        Won't hold charge

        By Lisa

        from Knoxville TN

        Comments about Chi Escape Cordless Hair Styling Iron:

        This was a gift from my husband...something I actually wanted, LOL. I changed it fully for the 4 hours it recommended and the went to use it, I have longer hair but was NOT expecting it to lose its charge after only 15-20 minutes. This was very discouraging, however I did give it the benefit of the doubt and charged it over night only for the same thing to happen the next day! I am VERY disappointed in this product and will be returning it to my local Ulta where it was bought.

        I do not have a receipt since it was, like I said a gift so I hope I will not be given any problems since I still have all the original packing.

        Comments about Chi Escape Cordless Hair Styling Iron:

        I bought this cuz I had gotten a pixie cut & i charged it & it took a long time to charge fully & my hair wasn't even that long & it died before I even got to finish straightening it. now my hair is longer & i have to find a few hours to plug it in just to use it for maybe 15 minutes before it dies & it sucks cuz this was a lot of money so it's the only flat iron I have

          Will this chi escape provide enough heat so that it may be used on a cruise ship. Power is minimal on the ship
          These mixed reviews are concerning since I do not want to be in middle of ocean and not be able to straighten my hair. Very conscious

            We don't recommend switching it "on" unless in use. It charges while in "off" position.

            This is a compact styling iron, so it may take you a bit longer to style your hair due to the smaller plate size.
