I’ve always used the Chi flag iron since 1990s. After having the classic one for ~20 years, I finally had to replace it. After trying out 3 different flat irons because I needed a replacement immediately, I found this Chi online for the perfect price. The item was received timely and the quality is great. It heats up very quickly and produces pretty wavy curls. Love it!!
Not disappointed w/ the look, but when I plug it in, the main light in my room flickers. I’m assuming it has something to do with being dual voltage. I like the digital display too! Overall, if my OG Chi didn’t die on me (after 5years), I would of kept what I had. I don’t feel like returning and then exchanging for the OG, too much hassle. I’ll deal with what I have. Don’t buy unless you HAVE to.
My second chi, the first one was over Ten years old and the cord was just starting to fray so I figured it was time to replace it. Love this one even more with the 3 preset temps and the mat to place it on and of course it does an awesome job at straightening...but it’s a Chi so no shocker there.
Great straightener and feels so smooth going through my hair. Only down side is that the temperature automatically changes and turns super high when I have had it set on a lower setting for my fine hair. I have to restart the iron and reset it and every few seconds the temperature starts rising higher than I set it on it’s own.
