Love mine…i have a Solia with tourmaline. Tourmaline is a stone that absorbs energy or something…however it works, it’s ‘special property’ is reducing frizz when you flat iron with it. I paid around $85 and I think i bought if off amazon? it’s black with blue stone….i like it better than a Chi, which I’ve used before. I have naturally wavy hair and a Chi tends to frizz me out a little unless a professional does it. I could never get it right myself. I’ve had it for like, 4 years!

I love my chi.  I don’t use it all that often but I really do like it.

I loved the Chi.. My friend let me borrow hers after she buzzed her hair ( & didn’t need it anymore) She grew out her hair and wanted it back 🙁

I bought one – not the chi. and it is definatly not as good. I have really stubborn hair and the chi worked like a dream! 🙂

I’ve had my Bio Ionic iSmooth for alomost 3 yrs and love it!  Also has great reviews:


I personally haven’t tried the Chi, but I have friends that adore theirs:


EDIT: Granted i bought mine a few yrs ago and right after a break up when I was more inclined to spend more $$ on vanity, but I don’t recall paying anywhere near $175 for my flat iron…

The Chi is my best friend when it comes to straightening my thick, coarse, and wavy hair at home.  It is definitely worth the money!

I also have a Solia tourmaline and am very happy with it.  I got it off of Folica.com for like $90 I think.

I have a Sedu that I bought from folica.com that I LOVE.  And the site has good customer service — the first one I bought died a few months after I got it and they shipped me a new one very quickly.  That replacement iron has been with me 5 years and is still going strong.  And I use it every day.

I love my Chi.  I have used them for about 7 years, and just bought my second one last year.

Ive had 3 CHI’s over the last 8 years– one crapped out after a couple years and another I killed on a trip abroad. I love it. I have very curly, thick hair, and it works REALLY well. My hair stays straight unless its really humid out till I wash it. No other straightener that’s cheaper will work for me! Another one my hair dresser has is an FHI? that works well too.

i have a hot blue chi from Ulta. My friend’s nicer chi worked better on my hair, but i have no complaints about the chi. I do have to make sure i have product in my hair though so it doesn’t get over-done.

ETA – mine was originally 120 or something, but on sale at Ulta for 100. Then i used a 20% printed coupon from the web (and they put someting in their weekly circular, fyi) so with tax it was about 80 bucks. It was about the same online for the same iron, even on discount sites, so I went with it.

I love my CHI!!! After years using a Conair $30 one, I’m so glad I converted. You can find it for $90 on drustore.com with free shipping! Here’s a picture from this weekend with my husband 3 days after using the CHI. It stayed like that until I washed it.
