The following is a reader review of the Ultra Chi Flat Iron.
I have a confession. I am in a long term relationship with a hair straightener. It's not just any straightener. It's an Ultra CHI flat iron. In blue iris to be exact. It's easily my most prized beauty possession.
The Ultra CHI flat iron is my favorite hair styling tool, because it works magic on my hair. I have curly, frizzy hair. It is really thick. It's so thick I have broken my fair share of hair ties. My CHI can take that thick, curly mess on my head and whip it into a sleek, smooth coif.
Not only does the Ultra CHI flat iron smooth out my hair, but the style lasts. I don't usually put anything in my hair after I wash it, so the CHI nixes the frizz by itself. I have owned cheaper flat irons in the past, and they didn't set the style for the day. Sure, I could buy products to put into my hair to make the style hold, but if I can get the same result with the flat iron alone for the whole day, why would I use anything else?
My CHI is fast too. It takes me about 15 minutes to straighten my hair. With my last flat iron, I had to go over the same length of hair repeatedly which added time in front of the mirror. It got to the point that I just pulled my hair back everyday in the interest of saving time. Now, I can do my hair almost as fast as I can do my makeup. That makes this busy girl very happy.
The CHI is less damaging to my hair than other brands of flat iron. I dye my hair like other girls change their nail polish, so my poor hair gets put through the chemical wringer. I don't need heat damage on top of that. Since I only have to run the iron over each small section of hair once, or twice at most, I minimize the damage.
Bottom line: The Ultra CHI flat iron makes my hair gorgeous when I want to wear it straight. I would recommend it to anyone in the market for a good flat iron.
