I am a CHI loyalist and would not consider buying any other falt iron for my hair, but the CHI Air that I purchased from Overstock is not a CHI quality flat iron. This product is made of very cheap plastic that you can barely hold on to b/c the plastic gets so hot you burn your fingers. Strangely, the plastic is the only hot part of this iron!! The plates, which the site says heat to 456 degrees, get nowhere near hot enough to do a decent straightening job! I am very disappointed in this product and I am going to try to return it. I ordered the silver and the image on the website makes it look like more of a white shimmer, when in fact it is very metalic silver plastic. I suppose f you are looking for a light-weight travel iron, this would fit the bill, but you can find better for less. I think there are better options, even on the Overstock site, than the CHI Air and I would never recommend this product to anyone.
This product is absolutely amazing and offers versatility when styling. You can straighten and curl your hair. I love this product and would recommend to anyone interested in curling or straightening natural or relaxed hair. I also love the fact that you can set the heat on various settings/temperatures based on the texture of your hair.
Heats quickly and different temperatures helps protect hair.
I had been using my old classic chi flat iron for about four years when it died. I shopped around and with my club O rewards credits, this was hands down the best deal I could find. Not to mention, I absolutely love this flat iron. It makes my hair much straighter than my previous chi iron, and my hair stays smoother and shinier throughout the day. The first time I used this iron, friends kept saying my hair looked great and wanted to know what I had done differently. This product is great!
This is my second Chi Straightener. My first one lasted 6 years and I used it EVERY day. The only reason it quit working was because I wrapped the cord too tight and split the wires. I travel a lot and would wrap it tight to fit in my suitcase. The product itself is a very wise investment. I will take my much better care of this new one. I got the fire red one and it is a very attractive looking appliance. I would def recommend this to anyone looking for a great ceramic flat iron.
I've never owned a Chi before, but have only heard great things about them. This one catches my hair, whereas my DH (Diane the Hunter) flat iron did not. It wasn't horrible, but I definitely noticed the differences between the two. My hair did need fixing-up the following day. I really do like the ability to adjust the heat because I don't like to fry my hair everyday. After only using it twice, I am trying to decide on whether or not I want to return it. Also, I have read there are differences between CHI and CHI Home. This is a CHI home, which is not the professional version, but one sold for home-use. I bet there is a difference in quality between the two.
Chi definitely has the best straighteners out there, and I was very pleased with the product. The temperature setting is nice, unlike the original it can go from 180 to 400 degrees. The only thing that I don't like about this straightener was that it takes so long to heat up! and my last 2 chi's did not have that problem. But, it does leave my hair shiny and takes away a lot of the frizz. The teal-ish color is also very cute :)
Flat Iron makes my hair styling easy and done in minutes! I look like a professional has styled my hair! Love it!!!
After many of my friends talking about a Chi flat iron and my cheap one having the coating wearing off, I decided to spurge and order this one. I really like that it has variable temperature and it heats up fast. I can now do my hair so much quicker since I only have to go over my hair usually once. And I have naturally curly hair. I am thinking it was well worth the money especially if it last as long as they say!
I was a little nervous spending 100 bucks on a hair iron but now I know why Chi is more expensive. For all these years, I have buying generic irons for $20 bucks or less and killing my hair. I was so skeptical about the Chi actually being better for my hair. After a weeks use, I have had so many compliments on my hair, people asking if I had my hair cut because it looks so smooth and shiny. I am so happy that I spent the money----I will never go back to generic. My hair is getting healthier by the day.
Spending money on a high-quality ceramic flat iron is the best investment I have ever made in my grooming. People keep asking me what I've done to my hair!
Like other Chi products I own, the best hair styling tools. The price is a bit highter than other brands but its well worth it, less time and less damage to your hair.
I like the ability to get a temperature of 400 degrees. In fact, I like everything about this product, with only one exception: It lacks a stand or support. I'm not a professional hair dresser, so I keep the flat iron in a basket, except when I'm using it. I wish the product had a support so that it didn't rest flat on the counter. Otherwise, I couldn't ask for more. I got a great price on a great product. (I checked it with my hairdresser first, and she said that Chi is a terrific brand.)
I really like this flat iron. I use mine almost every day. This flatiron is easy to use the setting dial numbers are small. Heats up rather quickly. Leaves your hair soft and straight.
Great styling tool that has even heat and stick free heat blades. Heats up quickly and leaves hair shiny and silky. Auto shutoff helps when I forget to turn off.
7 years later and this thing is still going strong. I hardly use it anymore and I rarely style my hair but this is true chi quality. A+ purchase.
When it comes to styling tools, I always go with Chi because they're the best. I've never had any trouble with any of my Chi purchases and love them!
Great flat iron. I use it all the time.
This is a so far the best flat iron for you hair!
I bought this flat iron in red, after my original Chi bit the dust. I had high hopes this one would hold up just a well (I got 7 years out of the last one). So far, so good! I've had it for 5+ years and it's still going strong. Would buy this again in a heartbeat.
