I wanted a Chi for sure, so I kept track of the sales at Ulta and finally purchased it when it was about $70. I just have a regular hot pink Chi with no temperature settings, just on and off. I’ve had it for over a year and used it nearly everyday with no problems. I highly recommend it!

 

ETA: Looks like Overstock has some good prices! http://www.overstock.com/search?keywords=chi+flat+iron&taxonomy=sub12312&cid=128610&kid=45465964&kenshoo_id_=_kenshoo_clickid_&TRACK=PSGGL&fp=f&mkwid=s8ySNDEfH&pcrid=9493329444&mtrckid=17394at10470

My Chi is amazing! I just have the regular one, and seriously, I’ve had it for five years and it still works. And you can definitely get it for under $100.

Another CHI recommendation…. definitelybworth the extra money. It is worth it for sure!!!

Just saw you wanted specifics on CHI let me go look…OK, just basic On/of. I don’t use it often but works well when I do.

I use the Go Green iron by Rusk, and I love it!  It’s low energy, gets good and hot, and it even straightens damp hair!  I have really thick curly hair that takes forever to dry, so the last part is my favorite.  You can get them on Amazon for well under $100.

CHI!  I loved my 2″ one but it was heavy.  I now have a 1″ one, but think it’s too narrow.  Think about cost per use (I paid way over $100 for the first one, but I dropped it too many times and had to replace it–still worked even though the handle had come off).

I love my Chi! I’ve had it six years now and it still works great (knock on wood!). I have fairly course, slightly curly hair, and it straightens even the worst air-dried bed head! Now, one of my friends has gone though severl Chis in the last few years, but all I know is mine is still great! I’m not too familiar with the different types of them, mine is just the plain Jane basic one inch one. You’re lucky that the prices have dropped, I paid almost $150 for mine!

My new one is a CHI air from overstock.  I do like that it has its own pouch.  Do make sure you get one with a temperature control.

I have a GHD New Wave – and it’s amazing. It’s a little bit more expensive, but will turn your hair into silk. It adjusts its temperature 15 times a second to make sure it’s at the right temperature for your hair – no guess work. Automatic shut off so you don’t burn the house down. A heat guard so you won’t burn your bag when you pack it. And it doesn’t snag. I’m obsessed, clearly.

I got mine about 2 years ago at Beaugy Brands. Since I have thick wavy/curly hair temp is not usually an issue for me.

I got my CHI from Target– the packaging was torn up so it was on sale! I still use it sometimes, but after a few years I can definitely tell the difference between mine and a brand new one.

I have a coriolis that I bought from a mall kisok about 6 years ago for $125. Best purchase ever! It still works as well as the day I bought it, and I have fine hair as well.
