      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!

    • Farouk CHI Original 1-inch Ceramic Ionic Flat Iron

      This is an excellent flat iron which I bought as a gift.

      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.

    Questions & Answers

    Get your product questions answered right here.
    • Why did you choose this product?

      • My old one just recently died! And I love this product!

    • Do the plates float like the other CHI irons?

      • Thank you for contacting us, erickaoro2011. No, the plates do not float on this one. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    • My chi has stopped heating up but it is still under the 2 year warranty according to the card that came in the box. Is this correct?

      • Thank you for the question. Our page has a 1 year distributor warranty. If you extended the warranty with one of our protection plans than the answer is yes.

    • Does this woek in India? If not, are there any CHI flat irons which will work in US and India, both?

      • Thank you for your interest. This item will not work in India unless used with an adapter. However, if the item breaks while using an adaptor, the warranty is void.

    • I heard that the original CHI flat iron is made in U.S. This product is made in U.S., or China?

    • hello!!! do i need an adaptor for greece???

      • 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.

      • how many watts do i need for the adaptor?

    • 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?

      • 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.

    • One side of the flat iron is not longer heating. How can this be fixed?

    • Only one side of the flat iron is working. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.

      • Thank you for your inquiry. You will be contacted by Customer Care for this matter.

    • we've only had the item a few weeks and it has quit working. how do i get a refund or a product replacement?

      • I'm so sorry for that, go ahead and contact us at 1-800 The Big O (843-2446) or via live chat using the online help center at the bottom of this page and we'd be happy to help.

    • i just recived my CHI in the mail it does not have the gold Q.C. passed sticker and the inside where you turn it on looks differnt than the video and on the box it did not say what size it was. How do i know its real and not fake?

      • All items that we sell are authentic and certified. We are very sorry your item arrived without the sticker for certification.

    • Does it work both on 120 V and 220 V?

    • 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.)

    • What is the maximum heat setting

      • This item has a fixed temperature range of 320-356 degrees Fahrenheit (150-180 degrees Celsius).

    • What type of plug does this have? The square kind with surge protector/reset buttons or just a regular 2 prong plug in?

    • I have been told that if you buy CHI online it voids the warranty of the manufacturer, as you have listed in the product information: Warranty:1 year Limited Distributor. Is this True? Thanks.

      • If you purchase this item from our website, this warranty will be serviced through the manufacturer.

    • Is this an authentic chi flat iron or replica?

      • The Farouk CHI original USA one-inch ceramic ionic flat iron is guaranteed to be authentic.
