What is it: A styling iron from CHI Smart--a leader in hair-tool technology--that combines even heating of titanium plates with the hair smoothing benefits of ceramic heating. With curved edges, this iron helps you create a multitude of glamorous styles--use it to straighten and smooth; create curls, waves, or flips; or help add beautiful volume to your hair.

Who is it for: Anyone looking for smooth, amazing, at-home results. The iron is perfect for all hair types, whether thin, medium, thick, or coarse.

Why is it different: A digital temperature control on the styling iron allows you to easily set the correct temperature for straight hair in one pass based on your hair type: use lower heat settings for fine hair, and higher heat settings for thick hair. The iron can heat up to 410F, and it keeps a consistent temperature with a 15-second recovery time for added ease of use; it also includes an automatic safety shut-off. The iron may be placed inside the included thermal accessory bag while still hot to help protect your countertop.

How do I use it: To hold the CHI Smart iron with a comfortable grip, place thumb on digital display unit. Grip the bottom part with other fingers and lightly close.

To straighten hair, divide it into 1" sections using the included clips, and glide the iron slowly from roots to ends. To create a flip, place the iron at mid-shaft and slowly rotate it away from your body; comb or brush gently to blend sections together. For a ribbon or curl effect, use larger sections of hair for loose curls, and smaller sections for tight curls. Place the iron at the root of your hair and lightly close it. Pull the iron 2" from the scalp, and take the end of your hair strand and wrap it under and around the iron. Continue to gently pull and rotate the iron until you have reached the end of your sectioned hair. The slower you pull, the better the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase First flat iron to really get my thick natural hair straight without frizzing back up quickly. This was a great purchase and worth the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pulls hair and causing breakage I absolutely love Chi products so when I seen this particular flat iron on QVC, I ordered it. I've had it for 5 or 6 months now and it's still causing breakage. At first, I thought maybe I needed to break it in so I disregarded the fact that this particular flat iron was not straightening my hair the way my other one did. My other flat iron (that my college age daughter took to school with her) was ceramic so maybe that's the difference. I need to stick with ceramic. I did check with my hair stylist that told me whatever product I was using was causing breakage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase I could have made My daughter is mixed and is at the age where curly hair is not cute. Once a week we use our CHI flat iron. The iron locks in shine and straightens her hair without it looking dry and damaged. We have owned several other high priced irons and I would recommend a chi over any of them. We have had this iron for almost 2 years now and it works just as good as it did on day 1!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not well made After purchasing and using this flat iron for less than a year, I have sent it back for a refund. It started turning off again and again. It also always left my ends frizzy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Get That Hot I have medium curly length hair and it's a little frizzy and this Chi does not go a very good job. It doesn't really get that hot so my hair still stays a little poofy. My cheap straightener that only cost me $20 does a fantastic job and leaves my hair shiny. This chi comes with three clips and two broke! I take good care of my belongings and was s little shocked at how flimsy the clips are. The little gray part in the back is what fell out of the clips. Not impressed at all with this straightener. I use it on my daughter's hair since it doesn't get that hot. This Chi is not for straightening curly hair.
