I am a huge fan of the regular CHI flat iron. I have very curly hair and CHI is one of the few flatirons that gets hot enough to simulate the blowout/straightener experience. Unfortunately, this one was a huge dud and the return policy is not user friendly for a personal care product. Go with the original and spend the dollars.
This item came is looking more like a second-hand product. The label on the iron was all faded, the handle was all scratched, old and even wobbly. I realized that bought a "refurbished' item, so I did not complain. But it stopped working on me only after two weeks and I had to call and initiate a return. I am just thankful that Overstock has such a nice Customer Support that I did not have a hard time with the return. I will think twice about buying 'refurbished' from now on.
I've always used a curling iron but everyone seems to straighten hair now so i decided to try it. My hair is hard to set, being a little stiff, and yet has a lot of wave each going in its own direction. I should have gotten a straightener long ago. Instead of trying to control the waves' directions, this iron straightens them out. Who knew? Heats up fast, gets very hot, and does a good job.
This straightener worked great for the 2.5 months it worked, until it spontaneously broke for no apparent reason, pretty much as soon as the distributor warranty was expired. It was never dropped, never touched water, nothing. Just worked one morning and the next morning wouldn't turn on. Total waste of money.
