My last CHI was a hand me down from a friend. It came to me in good/fair condition but during the time I put a roof over its head it decided to start a slow death. A very sad, slow, miserable death. One that required tape to hold the ON switch in place, one where the heat started to generate slower and slower than ever meaning I had to crank up the heat notch all the way. Since I don't straighten or curl my hair and require its uses every day, I'd been able to survive. I know, such a troublesome life I lead.
Per usual routine in our house, Hunter and I have the hardest time holding off from gifting whatever we purchased for one another for whatever holiday it is intended for. Exhibit A is the pictorial evidence above. My Hunter Bear, bless his heart, couldn't contain himself more than 2 days once he made the move to get a hold of the neon CHI-TAH. I will say my Bear knew, with so many events upcoming and reasons to actually do my hair and look more presentable, the early gift would be appreciated. Not only by me but the many who must interact with me and may prefer to look at good hair.
This is a quality tool. I do not simply say this because of the shameful state my previous one came to be in, but really and truly this CHI gives you the opportunity to create stylish hair and look fabulous while doing so! Win-Win, my friends. As always, the heat generates quickly and evenly, and you're able to style your little heart away. I just L-O-V-E this fabulous design more than anything. My hand me down was a basic black CHI. Anyone who knows me well (aka my Bear :)) knows I'm much more wild and wonderful than that ;) Also, the cord on this thing is fantastic. It is quite long and even more so from my previous one. If you're someone like myself who likes to post up in front the tv with your mirror and tools to get it done sometimes, then this is something to get happy over. It extends so far that if you're also trying to do a couple last things around the house whilst getting glammed, you are set. Of course don't do too much while holding a hot tool; no one likes singed ears, fingers or hair.
Just check out the sleekness starting right at the roots. It lasted all day through travel, heat, humidity-aka the devil's breath, and several other factors/ wannabe obstacles. Boommmmm.
