What is it: Full-sized and- travel-sized styling irons from CHI Smart that combine the superior glide and even heating of titanium plates with the hair-smoothing benefits of ceramic heating technology, which helps to seal the hair cuticle for soft, shiny, silky results. Its curved edges help achieve a multitude of glamorous styles. Straighten and smooth, create curls, waves, and flips, even add beautiful volume, either at home or on the go.

Who is it for: All hair types--from thin to thick/coarse.

Why is it different: An easy-to-use digital control on the full-sized iron allows you to set the correct temperature for straight hair in one pass based on your hair type--lower heat settings for fine hair; higher heat settings for thick hair. The iron keeps a consistent temperature with a 15-second recovery time for added ease of use. In a clinical study comparing CHI Smart titanium plates to another popular styling iron that uses ceramic plates, the CHI Smart titanium plates were found to be more scratch-resistant and durable.

How do I use it:

To straighten, divide hair into 1" sections. Place your CHI Smart iron at the root of your hair, closing it lightly. Glide the iron slowly from roots to ends. Repeat for each section.

To flip, place your CHI Smart iron at mid-shaft and slowly rotate iron away from your body. Repeat for remaining sections. Comb or brush gently to blend sections together.

To ribbon or curl: the size of hair section determines the tightness of the curl. For loose curls use larger sections and for tighter curls use smaller sections. Place the iron at the root of hair, lightly close, pull iron two inches from scalp. Take the end of your hair strand and wrap it under and around the iron. Gently pull and rotate the iron until you have reached the end of your sectioned hair to create a ribboning effect. The slower the pull, the better the result. Repeat for remaining sections. For looser curls, gently brush through. Start at the root and brush backwards.

CHI Smart Volumizing Styling Iron & Travel Iron w/ I'm not in love with this product. The second iron is a nice bonus and I do like the digital temperature and locking ability. However, I believe the quality is not worth the price. The iron leaves that "mark" on my hair. :( 02-22-14
Quick Styling! I decided to purchase this item as an upgrade to an old CHI flat iron I had for about 5 yrs. I was totally not disappointed with my purchase. This styler does not put that awful line at the root of the hair where it is first clamped down. Instead it gives a wonderful and consistent straightening to the section of hair that is being worked on at the time. I bought the pink/purple combo with the travel styler which is great. I thought the value was excellent given I originally paid this price for the one CHI styler in the past. 01-19-14
Disappointed After 7 months the large giraffe size stopped working :( That's the only reason for the 1 star otherwise I love CHI . 01-11-14
It Works As Illustrated I just got this in yesterday and used it for the first time today. It took some getting used to because the $25 flat iron that I bought at the local drug store has a different feel when clamped on my hair, which is what I've been used to. The CHI styling iron heats up quickly and works well, but the price is too high. The cheaper one that I bought works just as well. 01-04-14
Impressive I've always been 'flat iron challenged,' but when I saw it offered as a TSV, thought I'd give the CHI Smart a try. It is extremely easy to use, and delivers the results as advertised. The variable temperature settings are a plus as well. My hair is baby fine and straight - it's not easy for it to hold a style - typically it goes flat early in the day. Now it's shinier and holds the style far better than other heat styling products I've used. Would definitely recommend it. 01-01-14
love it !!! My hair feels amazing, so soft and it was easy to use, plus I love the pink zebra color!!! 12-27-13
Why didn't I get this Why didn't I get this when it was a TSV. This does a great job on my hair. And my hair is very curly. I really messed up.... 11-03-13
GREAT IRON !!!!!! I purchased almost a yr ago so far I've had no problems with performance or "shorting" out. Ya have to learn how to use it just as with any new tool. EX; 2day was the first time I was able to do a head full of curls,and I have hair down to mid back. As said it takes time to learn how to use. People have asked me where I had my hair done, truthfully I haven't been to a salon in years. My husband trims and colours my hair and helped me use this tool, and he's not a prof,,lol. "It's a new tool" he said to me and ya have use it for it to work correctly. It does add volume and will do most styles, just don't pull it straight down from your scalp or it will come out "poker straight", unless thats what ya want. I'm so glad I purchased this item it gives me all the latest styles without having to pay a stylist. AS SAID GREAT IRON + YA GET 2 !!!! But seriously it is a good product and does work as advertised it's not "cheap" as some have said.. 11-02-13
Love This Set I got this set some months ago when it was offered as a TSV for the first time. I'm in my late 50's and have used curling irons for years on my baby-fine thin hair. I decided the Easy Pay and QVC's return policy gave me an opportunity to try a flat iron. Wow - so glad I did! It took some practice, and in fact I'm lots better after watching the demo on-air again recently. I love being able to go anywhere from a gentle curve to really full and wavy, with one tool. The travel iron is an impressive packable option. And to the folks who said it's designed badly because they turn it off accidentally - turn the iron over. Hold it with your thumb on the side without the switch. Voila! 10-29-13
Great styling iron Love this styling iron. Works so well just like advertised on tv. I shared the smaller one with my daughter and she loved it also. 10-17-13
AWESOME I read some of the reviews before I got it and was worried. So when I got it I made sure I read the directions and LOVE it. Some of the troubles others had I believe was easy fixes by just reading the directions. Anyway I love it and would recommend it to everyone , short short hair (mine is very short) and long long hair, really like it , just wish the case held both at the same time I like the little travel one for my bang. Well worth the money and now I am up set I didn't get it earlier cause now I have all these little cheap ones taking up bath room space :) 09-25-13
Heats up fast Heats up fast, not bad for someone using a flat iron for the first time. Nice that it comes with the travel size iron as well. good to travel or as a gift. 09-24-13
