What is it: The CHI Smart Gemz Tri Styler is a multifunction hot air brush that easily styles both damp and dry hair into multiple styles. It's your go-to tool for endless styling possibilities!

Who is it for: Anyone looking for a multifunctional hot hair brush to easily style hair into multiple looks.

Why is it different: A concentrated dryer nozzle allows this compact tool to be used as a handle-free blow dryer for quick, conventional drying. The retractable bristle attachment transforms the hair dryer into a hot-air round brush, perfect for blow-outs and creating styles with body and volume.

How do I use it: After hair is 80% dried, using your fingers, section the hair from the corners of your ears until they touch in the back, then twist the hair and secure with a clip. For thick hair, create another section in lower nape.

Detach the nozzle and put on the retractable bristle attachment. Starting with the bottom section, grab a half-inch sub-section. Place the Tri Styler with its bristles extended under the hair at mid-shaft and slide the switch to the high position. Roll the Tri Styler all the way to the ends of the hair and then rotate it. After the hair is completely dry, roll the Tri Styler all the way to the root and slide the switch to the cool position. Allow the hair to sit for five seconds to set the style.

To add bouncy curls to the blow-out look, place the Tri Styler with its bristles extended under the hair at mid-shaft and slide the switch to the high position. Roll the Tri Styler all the way to the ends of the hair. Wrap the hair around the barrel and roll the Tri Styler up toward the roots. Slide the switch to the cool position and let the hair sit for five seconds. Twist the cool tip of the Tri Styler to retract the bristles and let the hair fall. Continue the same motion around the head, working your way up the sections.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TANGLED MESS HORRIBLE PRODUCT. I have the one that came with two different size barrels. I was using the smaller size to make beachy waves. After I had done one side of my head I started on the other one and somehow the barrel was tangled in my hair and wouldn't come out. I tried for a half hour and couldn't get one stand to loosen. My husband went out to his tool box and got a rod of some kind and finally got all of my hair out of it. I thought I was going to have to cut it, thank god for him. This shouldn't even be possible to happen. I was mortified. I threw it in the trash. The In styler was so much better, but they no longer carry that product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best styler ever Curls my fine stick-straight hair. Faster than using a dryer and a curling iron

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me I tried it many times but the brush would not grip my hair. Couldn't hold my hair on the brush...just too hot. Went back to my conair that I got on sale a Walgreens for $24.Thought this would be an upgrade but didn't work out that way for me Attachments were difficult to get on and off. Returned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so good I bought this and used it a few times and loved it at first. Then the bristles on the brush stopped working. Had to send it back. According to what I have read on the reviews, I was lucky it happened right away and I was able to return it! I don't usually write negative reviews but I feel others need to know before buying.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.
