I seriously cannot say enough good things about my CHI, I've had mine for probably 5 or more years, and it still works the exact same as the first day I ever used it! I received mine before they started making them in China with wiring problems... When they first started making CHI's... and I mean the good ones, that's when I bought mine! I'm so glad that I did.. it literally heats up in only a couple seconds, and it doesn't take that long to cool down either. I have reaaaaallly thick and wavy hair, so I need a good straightener... I've used a lot of different ones before but nothing can make my hair look as good as my CHI!
Overall: I inherited this from my sister, it is the best beauty tool I own. I would buy it for myself in a heart beat.
Performance: This device changed my hair life. Takes about 5min to straighten my hair with this bad boy! Sleek and shinny, best straightener in the world. Like I said inherited from my sister, so it's going on about 8 years strong.
WORTH the PRICE.
okay, so my friend has this straightener, and shes had it for a good 3 years, and it still works like its brand new. it makes your hair so incredibly straightt. just don't waste your money on other straighteners. Save your money and buy the CHI.
I know a cheaper alternative
CHI is awesome and one of the best flat irons I've used on my hair but I've never bought one because it's just too pricey for me. A good cheaper alternative (about 50% cheaper) is the Generic Value Products (GVP) flat irons. You can buy them at any Sally's Beauty Supply and they work just the same as a CHI. I love my GVP just as much as any CHI i've used. It's awesome for straightening my curly hair and even giving me a more controlled curl. I love how versatile these flat irons are but I just thought I'd let you girls know about GVP, just in case you didn't know about them yet! :D
And BTW GVP makes generic hair styling products as well. I use their Generic Paul Mitchell Skinny serum whenever I straighten my hair. Same smell, same texture, same ingredients, same EVERYTHING... except the price! :)
Love it, Love it!!! A must have to control the fine fly aways that just won't don' t want to stay in place. Perfect for in the morning before work.
The best flat iron i've ever used. The size is perfect. and the lack of heat setting really doesnt bother me.
It does get really hot but it makes it easier to straighten my hair.
It's never burned my hair.
i just really love it.

This is a great flat iron! I've had mine for 4 years, and while its not quite as efficient as the day I bought it, it totally works, and I won't have to replace it anytime soon.
I have the 1 inch and the 2 inch Chi straighteners and I love them both so much. You don't have to go over your hair a million times to get it straight. Great products, only straighteners I will ever use.
this chi is awesome..i use it for everything...straightening hair, curls, formal hair styles, classic styles...this thing is amazing..just remember to buy heat protectant for your hair because you can fry your hair really easily
Gave me the best hair on homecoming night! I'll post a picture on my profile of my hair! It was absolutely lovely! It held all night too! I've never been so happy with a hair styling tool! I always use this to give my hair the perfect curls!
