CHI LAVA is a line of ceramic tools infused with volcanic minerals for quicker, gentler heat styling. Now, Good Housekeeping magazine has recognized two of our tools as Best of 2023!

The CHI LAVA Ceramic Curling Iron’s outstanding performance and quality won it the title of Best Curling Iron for Thick Hair. Meanwhile, the CHI LAVA 1″ Ceramic Hairstyling Iron won Best Overall Hair Straightener!

Good Housekeeping’s rigorous testing process, which includes evaluations by experts and real users, ensures that each product lives up to its claims. With the power of volcanic minerals, it’s no surprise that these two LAVA tools took home the titles.

Ceramic Curling Iron

Curling thick hair can be a challenge. That’s why we pulled out all the stops designing this groundbreaking curler.

It scored high with Good Housekeeping judges in ease of use, performance and satisfaction. Of all the models tested, this straightener had the longest-lasting curls, even on thick hair with a mind of its own. Testers noted that it didn’t snag or pull the hair during curling and reached the highest temperature of all the curlers.

The highest setting of 450ºF is ideal for creating curls with staying power, especially in thick, coarse, natural textured or hard-to-curl hair.

Ceramic Hairstyling Iron

The CHI LAVA Ceramic Hairstyling Iron earned top marks with Good Housekeeping‘s testers.

According to testers, it warmed up in under 60 seconds, fully straightened hair and kept it sleek and frizz-free.

Testers were impressed with the smooth glide provided by the floating plates, as well as ease of use with all testers commenting on the “noticeable shine” in just one pass. “I would buy this product in a heartbeat,” said one of their testers.
