    I had previously only owned Croc straighteners, and I went back to Croc after trying this CHI. Several friends had recommended this, but I was honestly not nearly as happy with it as I was my Croc. I felt the heating was uneven and my hair did not get totally straight (I have very thick and long hair).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 was less than two months old and when it was plugged up one morning sparks shot out of it at my daughters head. It smelled like wires burning. I would not purchase this item again.

  • Alright. Catches my hair.
    Verified Purchase

    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.
