Product Rating: 5 You'd Never Know I Had Cury Hair!
Reviewer: cindylou from TX Wed Aug 29 2005
This iron straightens my hair! I have coarse, curly, bushy hair that only straightened with a large round brush and blowdryer. With this CHI flat iron I just wash, air dry then straigten. It doesnt pull off or break my hair and with just one stroke I have shiny, stick straight hair. It stays soft and shiny til I wash it. Ive tried everything else I even chemically straightened my hair but with this staightening iron I found that I didnt really need all of that to have shiny, straight hair. I love it!

Product Rating: 5  I LOVE MY CHI ;)

I recently purchased my second Chi straightener after dropping my very first beloved Chi causing one of the plates to come loose :(

I used to straighten my extremely curly, thick hair with a clothes iron on the ironing board!!! It was the only way to ever get my hair straight! My parents finally caved about 5 years ago and got me a Chi for Christmas...

The BEST hair straightener I have EVER used... hands down.

Product Rating: 3  does the job, but damaged my hair
Reviewer: Melody from Houston, TX Wed Jan 23 2008

It does the job as a flat iron, but damaged my hair pretty quickly. I had very healthy hair before and got upset when I found my hair dry and damaged. I stopped using it. Having healthy hair is more important to me.


About Solia:

Product Rating: 5  better than the chi
Reviewer: Wendy MAzzant from Ellwood city, PA Thu Jan 20 2005

I am a hair stylist and have bought a lot of junk, And have used the best . Until i decided to check out flat irons on the net. I come across the Solia. I was not sure if i wanted the Chi or the Solia Iron, so i started to read the reviews. They all sounded very good so i decided to go with Solia. I have used the Chi before. So i have seen what it can do, It was a "good" iron , but i would never own anything else. It blows the Chi away. I have only owned my Solia iron for 3 weeks and have already sold people on them. They bought one. I , as a stylist recommend this iron for all hair textures, legnths, and densities. The is no job too big for this thing.

Product Rating: 5  Great choice!
Reviewer: Jenn from Georgia Sun Dec 28 2008

I had an FHI, which pulled my hair, and had no temp control....hated it! So, I got this iron, and have been using it for about 2 weeks now. I LOVE IT! It heats up very quickly, and 1 pass of your hair sections will do the trick. No pulling, or ripped out strands. My hair is smooth & silky, and doesn't immediately curl up in humid weather (which we have plenty of here in GA). Best investment I've made in a hair styling product.

Product Rating: 4  Pretty Good
Reviewer: cat from nj Sat Apr 12 2008

This is only the second flat iron I have purchased. It is much faster and easier than the Maxi-Glide. I didn't buy the Chi because I knew at least two people who had issues within the 1st year. Anyway, my daughters hair is extremely course and frizzy. It works good. Her hair stays straight for the day but does tend to get the curl back by the evening. She does use product but her hair is extremely difficult. I would most likely buy the same one again.
