  • THE BEST THING EVER

    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.

  • These are FAKE CHIs

    This is a want to be CHI! A FAKE . Do not buy from this seller. Please do not buy from this freaking hack seller. I watched the video that explains the real Chi's and the fake ones. All the fake details were there. I expected that if the video that warned buyers, was on the same page as the sellers o-stock page, I felt it was a legit product. My fault for not researching this seller.

  • Broke after 2 yrs, warrantly doesn't cover

    I expect a product of this expense to last more than 2 yrs. And since this was purchased via the internet (overstock.com), the warranty is not applicable. Be cautioned when purchasing a product like this at this online retailer.

  • Immitation Farouk CHI 1-inch Ceramic Ioni

    This is not a genuine Chi flat iron, it did not work at all. Return was generated upon receiving. I will not buy another one. The Original Chi flat iron has written on it - "Beauty Salon" However, Overstock customer service was great as always. Thanks Overstock Customer Service Representatives!

  • Love this!

    It has been five years, and I still use my Chi straightener. I know people complained about the life of the product. I used to use mine daily. I always took good care of it and stored it in a sleeve when I wasn't using it. It still works very well, and I'm really happy I bought a real Chi rather than a knock off.

  • Not what I expected...

    I purchased this Chi in January 2013. By July 2013, it is already not working. I never take it out of the house, it is for my personal use only, and not even every day. When I received it by mail I thought it felt very light. Every Chi I have had before or used at a salon or from a friend was heavier material. This Chi feels like cheap plastic. The ceramic does get hot very fast, and it does do the job- my hair is straight when using it. But no more straight than when I used my *** straightener I purchased from ***. In fact, I went back to the Conair straightener this week because the Chi is not even working. One plate stays ice cold while the other gets hot. I was expecting this product to be better made for the *** I spent. I have been asking around, and every one else's Chi's are made of a heavier plastic or metal, and they have held up over the years. I did purchase the 2 year waranty from Overstock so I am going to see how that covers this situation. I recommend that if you're going to purchase a Chi, get one from the store so you can pick it up and make sure it is what you want & what you think you are getting.

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

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
