    I love this flat iron. I have been struggling with my frizzy hair for years and this thing makes it so straight and smooth. I live in Virginia and it gets VERY humid in the summer. After using other flat irons, mt hair would frizz up after walking outside. With the CHI your hair will stay straight and frizz free until you wash it again. I have had this CHI for 4 years and I never have a bad hair day anymore. I wish I had discovered it earlier, it waould have saved me from many stressful mornings! You will not regret this buy, it is worth every penny and more. I tell everyone about it, it's GREAT!!

  • Best Investment

    This is the best investment I have ever made. I have had my CHI for 5 years now and it is still going strong. I have dropped it, left it on all day and night, you name it and I did it. And it is still working like it did the day I got it! I have tried other straighteners and none compare or even work like this one.

  • Great Product!

    I just received and used the Chi flat iron today. I heard (from my hairdresser) that it was the best, and it definitely is. I have wavy/frizzy hair, and have to flat iron every day. Even after I would flat iron with my store bought iron, I would still have fluffy/frizzy hair. Not any more with this new Chi iron. Today, I was able to flat iron my hair that was washed yesterday, and put in a pony tail wet (if you can imagine the big pony tail wave) and it came out perfectly straight, and smooth. I seriously felt like I walked out of the hair salon. I love this flat iron!!

  • Best Hair Product Purchase

    This is the best hair product I have ever bought. I had finally bought one for myself after noticing the difference it made after the salon. I have really straight hair and don't need it to straighten, but it smoothes out all my dry hair or anything damaged looking, and gives it that sleek Jen Aniston look. I've given 3 as gifts in the past 4 months!

  • Awesome product

    I have very naturally curly hair and I have straightened it everyday for years. This product has made it so easy! I can make it really flat or flip it, or even do loose wavy curls, it's great. All my sisters want one now, and this is a good price I couldn't find it for less anywhere, even at a stylist's discount.

  • The BEST

    I absolutely LOVE this product. I have thick frizzy hair and have been straightening for years. This is the only straightener I have ever used that will really keep my hair frizz free--even in the rain or out dancing and sweating. For the first time ever, I can wear my hair down and go out without worrying I'll look like a poodle at the end of the night. Only downside is it does damage your hair if you don't use a heat protectant, but this is to be expected with any straightener. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Still Going!

    Can't remember how long ago I purchased this, but it is great, and still working perfectly! My 10 year old is now using it as well.

    The best flat iron on the market

  • CHI

    This is not the fake CHI. I was worried because I saw a review that it was fake however the review was 1-2 years old. I have had mine for a month now and have had no problems. I figured having no temperature setting might be an annoyance but the flat iron knows exactly how much heat to give your hair. Does not pull hair when you curl either. Quality product!

hello!!! do i need an adaptor for greece??? evitsouka on Dec 13, 2012

Answer This Question

Yes as the voltage for Greece is 220-240 Volts and U.S./Canada are 110-120 Volts as well as having a different socket type. Hair dryers, curling irons, etc. will need a Plug adapter + voltage converter. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 13, 2012
how many watts do i need for the adaptor? yoly1195 on Jul 9, 2013

I just received the Original CHI flat iron, but I am questioning its authenticity. When I called customer care for Farouk, they stated that Overstock is not listed as an authorized dealer for their products, and thus, my waranty is void. Also, I am missing the gold Q.C. sticker. There are other issues that give cause for alarm as well. How can I be sure that what I purchased is authentic? kp314 on Oct 29, 2012

Answer This Question

Any flat iron purchased online will not have a warranty through Farouk; it will be through our company. The item is 100 percent authentic. To verify its authenticity, there are certain things you can check. The LED light will be clear if it is authentic, and when it is plugged in and heating up, it will flash red. There will also be information stamped on the inside of the handles; if this information is simply on a sticker, the product is not authentic. overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 30, 2012

According to everything I've read online, a genuine CHI iron has a 3-prong plug with a GFCI, and goes up to 405 degrees Fahrenheit. Your website says it is a 2-prong and only goes to 356 degrees F It also says that the iron comes with a TWO year warranty, which leads me to ask where Overstock purchases their irons. (since it would appear they may actually be fake.) softailgal on Apr 2, 2012
