Rated 2 out of 5 by Tantrum Retractable Bristles Vs Thick, Long Hair
This was my Christmas gift. After watching the item perform flawlessly on several models during one of the tutorials on BeautyIQ, I had high hopes. I even specifically asked if it would work with long, thick, wavy hair and was informed that the retractable Bristles would handle my hair type. Well, I regret to report that after guiding my hair around the barrel, I couldn't get the bristles to retract. It was a TOTAL DISASTER! It took over an hour to extricate my hair from the thing strand by strand and another to condition and comb through the snarls! I guess the professional stylist and I have very different definitions of "thick" & "long". I can't even return because my husband pitched the box; after the stylist's reassurance I led him to think I knew that it was going to work! And the dryer part does, although I find it very awkward to hold. Having said all that, I will acknowledge that probably 90% of people will be able to do an outstanding job styling their hair.
Rated 1 out of 5 by RedRudyCat Broke! Money down the drain!
Loved this! I used it everyday! It got super hot so I didn't have to use any other tool after my hair was dry. Problem was the morning it got so hot it melted the knob on top! I could not send it back to QVC because return time was up. I emaile Chi's customer service and explained what happened and said I would be willing to pay for another brush. I never heard back from from Chi. I bought the new Calista Style Dryer! I love it! Chi has lost my business and my money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jellosto Pretty but Pricey
Too heavy; does not get hot enough and the attachments are unwieldy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by iowann Love this!
Purchased this tool a little over 6 months ago and can't imagine fixing my hair without it! I have fine, thin, jaw length and very straight hair and get great lift that lasts all day. Do use some volumizing mousse and thermal spray that does help, but was using these products before and never got the kind of results as I do with the chi! Love the retractable bristles - makes styling so easy.
Rated 1 out of 5 by JNew poor quality.
The top knob broke within minutes of taking this out of the box. The bristles are retractable so there was no way to make it work once the end piece came off. The quality seems very poor. Returned it the same day I received it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ForReal Terrific Dryer Curler
Love this tool. I was hesitant at first but so far the bristles have held up and the dryer itself gets really hot to do the job. I have fine med short hair and with a perm for body I live that it "straightens" with some waviness. I now use wen too which has helped my hair and works well with is tool. Besides I don't have to blow out with a brush and heavy blow dryer
