The iron is awesome. I loved my flat iron before; and now I can do the same thing as far as flattening out my uneven bumps. It finishes the ends with a nice curl or I can make big cork screw curls throughout. It looks more updated than just straightening the whole thing. The iron curls so fast; it takes me no time at all to fix my hair!
Great Product! Heats fast and produces beautiful bouncy curls. Smooths hair just like the Chi Flat Iron but into curls instead of straight. I had a large barrel conair iron for a while and I am kicking myself for not purchsing this CHI a long time ago. The results are like night and day! Well worth every penny! This is my favorite hair styling tool....EVER
This is the best curling iron I have ever used. It was the perfect barrel size for beachy waves. My hair is incredibly fine and doesn't hold curls well, but after using this curling iron, my curls would actually hold almost all day. I'm sure a combination of the heat and quality material of the barrel. The reason why it received a good and not excellent was because I went to plug it in last week and it would not turn on. The digital monitor was lifeless. It was dead. I bought it only a year or so ago. For the price of this iron, I would at least expect it to outlive the dollar curling iron you can pick up at a drug store.

I bought this curling iron because I have a Chi straightener and absolutely love it. So I figured a Chi curling iron would be a really good investment to my hair! Umm...no. My curls fell out before I even left the house! There is absolutely NO difference from a curling iron that you buy from *****. I was really disappointed :( I am actually returning it.
I bought this brand of curling iron because I have very straight hair that never holds a curl. Alot of my girlfriends have the Chi flat irons and rave about them so I though I would give this a try. Unfortunately, I am very dissapointed. The iron offers variable heat settings but I have to keep it on the highest setting and I am afraid it is damaging my fine texture hair. After using the iron for only 3 months, there is a layer of burnt product on the barel of the iron and I generally only use light hairspray. Overall, I wish I would have spent less money because I got better results with my old metal drugstore brand irons.
I can't believe the money I spent on this crap. I don't know if it's Overstock giving me a product that didn't pass inspection and that's how they sell for cheap, but the curling iron will not even stay in your hair as you are wrapping it around the wand. I would not buy this, at least not from Overstock.com
I bought this curling iron because I had been using a flat iron and wanted a bit more body for my hair. I have STRAIGHT hair and the flat iron was not providing enough bend to the ends. This curling iron is GREAT. The barrel is big enough to provide large, soft curves at the end of my hair, which provides incredible body and bounce to my hair. The body stays in my hair practically all day, which is unheard of with my straight hair. The appliance itself is very lovely - very easy to use and heats up very quickly. Hair does not stick to the appliance, either. This is well worth the money. I have had cheap curling irons in the past and they do not hold a candle to this curling iron. Also, I think the barrel length is just right - not too short, as mentioned in other reviews.
I got this for my girlfriend and she loves the way her hair looks after using it. She claims this is the best curling iron she has ever used, the ones before it being hot tools. I did a lot of research before picking this out for her and I'm glad it worked out for her. While the price to me isn't bad it is higher than a lot of other irons on the market, but I say you get what you pay for and the quality of this item shows.
It takes time to figure out how to use it, there are no tips in the directions..you need spray to dampen the hair or it is more like a straightener..there was a scratch on the finish on the edge of the arm looks like it came form the factory.
My wifes hair looks and feels like she just came from the salon! She is so happy with it... she used to buy cheap tools for her hair and paid the price. She is now using the Chi flat iron and this curling iron with amazing results. She is happy, her hair is healthy... what a deal!
When you want a little curl and bounce instead of just the flat look often achieved with a flat-iron, try this large barrel iron. Heats up fast and really good at straightening even coarse hair. But, be careful, can scorch hair as well -- so lower temp.
The Farouk Systems CHI 1.5-inch Auto Digital Ceramic Spring Curling Iron is a good product. Digital heat setting, heat up speed, and ergonomic handle and cord are excellent. The only short fall is the length of the curling surface is at least an inch to short which limits the amount of hair that can be curled.
