CHI Smart Volumizing Styling Iron with Clips & Bag
I have been straightening my hair for many years, and I was truly disappointed in this styling iron. I have shoulder length wavy hair, as far as adding curl it worked OK, however when I wanted to use it as a straightener it made it frizzy and took several times through to take the wave out. Not as fabulous as it looked on QVC, sending it back.
It does what is advertised, having the clips is handy. I would've liked a holster rather than the bag. Can't really put down the iron on the counter to seperate and reclip hair without burning
Hard to use
When this was demonstrated, they showed it could be used on shorter hair. It may be possible but very hard to get and keep a curl. I wouldn't recommend this for shorter hair. I think the length needs to be at least shoulder length.
I have never been able to use this type of iron. This one is extremely easy. My hair comes out shiny and pretty. My hair is thin and this can make my hair have curls. Love this product. Wish I would have purchased it sooner. Thanks for a wonderful iron!!!!!
love my Chi
I an truly enjoying my Chi Smart styling iron..I stongly recomend using this tool..Leaves your hair very shiny and lots of volume..
Nice but short lived
I purchased the Chi Iron and used it for quite awhile, however it has a short shelf life for the price. It started not staying on, as soon as you start to use it, the iron shut itself off, then one day it just wouldn't work at all. I think for 120.00 it should last. I have purchased them at discount stores and had them so long I had to give them away when I wanted a newer style or updated version. You will never have to give this away it won't last that long. While it works it does a fantastic job on the hair.
CHI Styling Iron
Styling iron was hard for me to adjust to. This item would be great for teenagers.
Did not work as advertised on TV. Sending back on Monday.
Not worth the money
While using this product I felt the settings get in the way when holding to iron hair, it turns off or changes settings accidentally.
It does heat up fast but I really don't see a difference from my $39.00 flat iron.
And because of that I am sending this back. I just didn't feel it was worth the money.
Functional and Ease of Manueverability
Lightweight and easy to reach all the way around your head. You cannot go wrong with CHI. They are made to last. I just replaced my old CHI. It lasted for 8 years.
Unfortunately, I have to agree with the other reviews. I received my iron as a Christmas gift last year and less than a year later it shuts off after 2-3 curls too. Mine now also only heats up on a lower setting. I know it was purchased at QVC and I wanted to replace it, but after seeing the price for the quality and other reviews, I will not repurchase. I would not recommend this product for every day use based on my experience.
I'm very happy with this purchase. Although it seems a little expensive, you get what you pay for... and this product is wonderful. It heats up almost instantly, and is easy to use.
