It is not a secret that number one ceramic hair straightener has always been the Chi! To have the ceramic CHI in your list of straighteners is a must. These flat irons were one of the first in the markets and they also still on the first positions for hair straightener today, although the hard competition between the brands.
One of their classic versions is The CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic 1-Inch straightener. It consists of ceramic plates with a smooth plastic housing which was originally popularized by CHI. This straightener utilizes the latest innovative technology combining Tourmaline Ceramic with even heat distribution.
Control the heat
May be you have tried some classic CHI irons and you know they provides you heat controls on the inside of the straightener so you can style your hair without worrying about the heat. Also it comes with a temperature controlled wheel and a indicator which shows when the iron is ready to use.
This straightener doesn’t become as hot as other similar flats, but I think it’s not a problem.Sometimes we need a flat iron thet is more friendly to our hair.There are other irons around this price range which can get up to as high as 450 degrees, but not everybody needs this type of straightener. That we need is ceramic iron with the correct level of heat distribution which have the ability to make our hair looks good. I’m so satisfied that almost any hair type can get a style that lasts all day long with this one.
Say “no” to the hot spots
The heat distribution system on the solid ceramic plates truly can’t be beaten. A problem I have with other models – there are hot spots. Here the plates remain consistent which means no hot spots. It’s so suprised that it would be very hard to find out some difference between this iron on the hottest setting and the other irons that even get hotter.
Technology With Tourmaline
How we said earlier in this review, this straightener has tourmaline ceramic plates. This is a typically black or blackish mineral that occurs as prismatic crystals in granitic and other rocks. It consists of a boron aluminosilicate and has pyroelectric and piezoelectric properties. It forms one more barrier which provides both consistent heat and a surprisingly smooth surface. In brief, it’s perfect for your hair and it helps to style it easier.
Straight Quickly And Save more time
It straightens really fast – one more thing I like about this iron. Especially when I have no time. We know about our busy schedules and how we are trying to save time. I also like to do stuff quickly and efficiently in the same time, so this flat iron complements me. It makes my hair look beautifully silky and straight for no time.
Do any hair style
You can use this flat iron not only for straightening your hair but also for doing any kind of hair style. The smaller sized body makes it possible for you to straighten, curl, flip, twist, wave, and much more without the need to buy extra tools. Some of the flat irons have an oversized housing that makes it almost impossible to curl your hair for example, but the CHI is pretty much small enough to work for almost anything.
With regard to the price
If you are interested on this flat brand you know that the price of CHI irons generally is about 100$. On my opinion it is not the best price for a hair straightener, but it isn’t bad too. I heard from people which use this brand for years that a good CHI straightener can last for 5 – 8 years. On the other hand the brand has held this price for the last 10-15 years, so there is must be something to their staying power because people still buying them.
Definetly the color is not proving the standard of a product, but we have to say that this iron is available with five different colors. The effectiveness of the iron have no connection with the color, but when you can choose between black,red,pink,purple and blue, you feel more satisfied.
