CHI Smart Volumizing Styling Iron with Clips & Bag
Great!!! Does everything advertised. Straightens my thick hair quickly. Actually timed myself- 8.02 minutes - to go from fizzy thick to sleek and shiny. Makes my hair feels so sleek and soft. Got mine for Christmas gift.
Loved it until......
On Sept 5, 2014 my CHI Smart Volumizing Curling Iron stopped working. The thermostat blinks after I set it to the temperature I want to use, and it automatically goes to 22 degrees. It will not heat! For 6 months it worked great! Definitely not worth the price. Someone please let me know if there is anyway this item can be replaced.
I purchased this in March,2014
This flat iron is absolutely amazing. I have had mine for about four years now, and it still works like its brand new! I have tried other cheaper brands, for traveling, and they cannot even compare to my Chi. I honestly will never purchase another brand of straighter, nothing else I have tried makes my hair as soft and frizz-free as the Chi does.
Yep Mine Died In Less Than A Year Also
Just like the others, it worked great until it stopped working less than a year after purchasing. I'm starting to get very Leary of purchasing electronic items from qvc. Between this thing and my cooks essentials pressure cooker stopping working when I am past the month return policy but yet less than a year I'm not feeling very secure about the quality of my purchases from here.
AMAZING, Fav item from QVC
I LOVE my chi iron. I have very thick wavy hair and sometimes I want a more "polished" style and NOTHING I have ever used works as well or as FAST as this chi iron. Simply put I will never own any other iron for my hair, period.
Very Short Life
I have been a very avid CHI owner in the past but this model was a disappointment. I have had other older models last me years and this one barley made a year then it stopped getting hot. The worst thing is I even reduced my usage of it to be more careful about damaging my hair and it still quit. The led with the temp. went out with in the first month. Highly disappointed for the price I paid. Make sure to go look up reviews also else ware others said they have had to same problems with it.
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.
