Today I am going to review what has been known as the top rated hair straightener, by women, for quite sometime. It is known as the Chi ceramic hair styling flat iron.
Product Specs: CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hairstyling Iron, 1.25 Inch, 1.4 lb.
Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars
Also, this is picked as Amazon’s choice.
Product Description –
The product description from the manufacturer reads as follows, The dynamic CHI G2 offers a sleek design, upgraded technology and outstanding performances. The G2 features titanium infused ceramic plates for added durability and an even smoother glide. Digital temperature reading displayed on a color coded LCD screen allows for proper temperature setting for fine, medium and coarse hair up to 425°F.
What’s New –
You might be asking yourself,” What is new with this product?” Well, it now offers a digital display that the original CHI didn’t offer. Now it comes with titanium infused ceramic plates. I can tell you from my years of doing hair that this makes an incredible difference when working down the hair shaft. It improves the way it glides and doesn’t snag in your hair.
Let’s be honest, if you have thick curly hair, which the majority of users do that is why they are using this tool, then you need a flat iron that comfortably glides through your hair and doesn’t leave your scalp feeling like it’s on fire. The new ceramic plates also offer a smooth shine with their advanced technology.
LED temperature control makes this CHI now even easier to control the temperature. In the previous CHI flat irons there was only an on / off setting. Now just like a curling iron you have more control over the desired heat level. The manufacturer even gives some insight on what settings to use for specific hair types.
This new model of the CHI also provides a wider, broader surface on the ceramic plates further helping to cut down in your style time. The reviews for this CHI also rave about the 30-second heat time so you will be sure to achieve your hairstyle in minutes.
On Amazon this flat iron was given 89 great reviews out of 106. Out of 89 positive reviews only 2 of them were 4 stars instead of 5 stars. On another website this flat iron received 4.5 stars out of 5 overall and this was out of a whopping 839 reviews!!
The price is generally the same across various websites. Of course Amazon offers free shipping to all of it’s Amazon customers on products over $25.
There are other flat irons out there and believe me I have tried them all. I have found that for the money the CHI is the most affordable, long-lasting flat iron. You just can’t beat the affordability factor here in this flat iron. I have had my current flat iron for at least ten years. That is remarkably good considering all the clients that I work on in any given week.
The other flat irons that I would consider purchasing run closer to $199. All in all if I can get the usage that I need out of this flat iron for $129 then why waste your money? Even if one of my clients has extra thick, coarse or curly hair I don’t recommend that they spend $200 on a flat iron.
In Conclusion –
I have found that in my career the, CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hairstyling Iron, is the best flat iron for the least amount of money. The overall size and weight of this product work well for most hair types.
The flat iron receives 5 stars for the ability to quickly heat up and work quickly through the hair. Most users reported that this flat iron heats in 30 seconds.
The larger titanium / ceramic plates also make it easier to glide through the hair and provide more shine than ever before. The new LED temperature dial helps to use the appropriate heat setting for your specific hair type.
The CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hairstyling Iron also can be used to achieve large barrel curls in your hair or smooth waves. Check out this tutorial on how to Curl Your Hair With a Flat Iron for expert examples.
