  1. Tammy Meza Strong

    Best flat iron I’ve ever used!

  2. Bliss From Washington D.C.

    I love what this CHI Lava flat iron has done to my hair! I have found my flat iron! My hair texture is naturally curly, and length is past the middle of my back. After a blow dry, my hair is thick and frizzy. My hair feels healthier! This flat iron makes my hair silky, soft and bouncy. Even with humidity. Just beautiful!

    When my Croc iPulse flat iron died, I bought the Paul Mitchell Neuro Smooth Titanium flat iron which straightened very well although it left my hair very dry with no bounce. Even though used at low temps, my hair smelled like it had been pressed with a hot comb. I’m glad I only used it once or my hair would probably be damaged. I returned the Paul Mitchell Neuro Smooth for the CHI Lava flat iron.

    What a difference! No more titanium for me! I hope CHI continues making the CHI Lava. The quality of this product is outstanding! I’m so glad I considered this product. I’m completely satisfied! ❤️

    Okay, so I have thick natural curly hair. I mean thick. I live in northeast Pennsylvania. This entire summer has been rain and humid. So bad it destroyed my hair. I straighten my hair every two days, it’s still a huge puff ball. I decided to try this straightener over the cheaper one ones. WOW!! I’m in love. Silky smooth, and shiny. It’s a little pricey but I’m telling you girls it’s so worth it!!! Buy it!!! It comes with a small bottle of Chi thermal lotion to put on damp hair. Love it!! I went out and bought the full bottle. Hope this helps.

  4. Rida

    Absolutely the best flat iron I’ve ever used! I have thick and long Indian hair and styling usually takes FOREVER! But not with this flat iron. It heats up really quickly and leaves hair super shiny too! I’ve also noticed that the outer part of the plates doesn’t get heated up so you have less chance of burning yourself with it. I haven’t tried curling my hair with it yet but so far, I’m in love with this straightener.

  5. Jackie From Michigan

    I have 3a/3b type hair. Very curly roots and this iron straighten my hair beautifully. I bought a babyliss thinking it was the best and it sucked so I returned for this iron and I’m so happy. I owned the g2 before until it broke on accident and I’m never going to another brand! CHI all the way!

  6. Cassandra

    I am super impressed with this flat iron! It’s the best one out there. I’ve owned every hair straightener brand out there from Remington to Conair to Babyliss to T3. I have unbelievably thick coarse and curly frizzy hair and this smoothed it out made it super shiny smooth and healthy feeling. You NEED this in your life!

  7. Debnotdebbie71

    This is, by far, the best straightener I’ve ever used. It leaves my hair soft and shiny. I can’t say enough about this iron. A must buy!

  8. Mel

    It is totally worth splurging your money on. I needed a new straighter that would last me for years to come, and I made a GREAT investment. I hair looks shiny and healthy. It heats up fast and stays hot.
    Pros: makes hair shiny.

  9. CD From Louisiana

    I have super thick, frizzy, natural curly hair. I used to own a babyliss. The day I received I wash dried and sat down on my couch (yess I was tired and being lazy haha) to straighten my hair. My hair came out super straight for me not in front of a mirror. I Usually straighten my hair at night and then redo in the morning In order for it to be straight and frizz free. With this iron I done my hair that night before bed and only had to touch up in the morning! Completely Amazed!!!

  10. Beautyjunkiee

    I mainly use this for my bangs or creating loose curls and its awesome! I have thick long hair so for me to straighten my whole head this would take quite awhile .. but that’s ok for me because I was looking for something small for my bangs mainly. It’s cute and great heat setting, doesnt burn my ends . I would re purchase !

  11. Best flat iron

    I love my new chi! My hair is silky! It’s never been like this before. I done so much research till I was stressed over finding a new straightener. I have very thick curly hair. I was recommended this at my local Ulta store and I’m definitely going to keep it!

  12. Weezie From Las Vegas

    My hair seemed to be very dull before I used this flat iron, after using it my hair feels soft and looks sooooo shiny! It is hands down the best beauty tool I’ve ever bought! Highly recommend!!

  13. JusRene From California

    I was so nervous to buy a new flat iron. I had been using my old one for the past 6-7 years. I have very thick curly/frizzy hair. It’s down past my waist and I usually straighten my hair twice a week. I found this flat iron in stores and read the reviews on it. It was on sale so I decided to try it out and I have to say I absolutely love it! I’m very picky when it comes to what products/tools I use on my hair but I highly recommend this flat iron. I keep it around 370 degrees and I only have to go over my hair once or twice 🙂

  14. Hunty Child From Midwest

    I am so glad I decided to buy this flat iron. Probably the best beauty investment I have made in a long time. I have kinky hair and I’m picky about flatirons. I don’t like titanium irons because while they straighten perfectly they are extremely damaging. I needed to find a flat iron that straightens like a titanium minus the damage. After using this and some of the CHI serums my hair is absolutely gorgeous! I honestly can’t believe it. I love the fast heat up because I switch between temperatures depending on the area of my hair. It also allows you to get close to your roots without burning your scalp. And I can get a super straight look without using the highest setting. This is a must especially if you have natural course hair and you don’t want damage!

  15. Bri From Austin, TX

    By far the best straightener I’ve had! Leaves my hair super straight with a lot of shine. Heats up quick and does the job without having to have it on the highest setting. Worth the splurge!

  16. Brianna

    Fantastic flat iron it glides so smoothly without snagging puts shine in hair to. It has lots of heat settings smooths hair without using the highest temperature very fast heat up it also remembers the temperature you were using when you turn it back on.Highly recommend for all hair types.

  17. Yanibaby From Saint Cloud, FL

    I have a lot of thick wavy hair, that is voluminous and long. I was looking to buy a good 1″ hair straightener. I bought the Royal Blue Hot Tool and even though it heated up quick it pulled my hair (I have never had an issue with any hair straighteners pulling my hair) so I returned it and purchased this one. It is wonderful, it glides smoothly on my hair, straightening equally my hair, and heats up quickly. I wanted a 1″ to straighten as well as curl and this one definitely works great for both. The price is a bit up there but worth it. A lot of people keep mentioning how sucky most hair straighteners are these days but proper maintenance is a must. Once your done make sure to turn it off, unplug it, let it cool, and put away in a safe spot away from kids and pets as well as avoid any hard slamming or drops to guarantee a long life. I love this straightener and it happens to be my very first CHI!!!

  18. pinkdymndllc

    My fav chi product is definitely the chi hair straightener, I have never used one that leaves my hair soft, not frizzy, and actually straight. I love this product and I would guy a million of them if I could. Every product has a unique magic on your hair. For the hair products to their styling tools, I’d give one to you for your birthday and you would know what God is. – yours truly my hair

  22. Sarah J

    Best flat iron

  23. Aaron Barlow

    I give this product a 10-10 because it’s absolutely amazing! When you flat iron the hair it looks silky smooth! No damage is done like you would find with other flat irons!! Did I mention it curls the hair like a dream also??

  24. heather havlin

    Amazing flat iron!

  25. BethanysMommy2014

    My Sedu wasn’t heating up so well after 2.5 years so I went on the hunt for a new flat iron. Glad to see CHI make one that heats up to 450 degrees finally. I set it to 440 and my thick frizzy hair is done in no time. No pulling at all, so nice and smooth. Hoping it lasts for 2+ years and I’ll be happy! It’s nice and light and gets close to the roots very well.

    Doesn’t leave an odd line like the cheaper CHI’s either and flips very well. Heats up super fast!! Hair stayed pretty straight and smooth even when I got hit with humidity and rain so major plus as with my sedu my hair would start to recurl and frizz all the time. Thank you to JCP for the price match, I am very happy with this flat iron.

  26. Amber From Normal, IL

    I have shoulder length blonde hair that is coarse and thick at the ends. I had been using the same straightener for a couple years and needed a new one that didn’t make my strands feel disgusting and fried. Well, I must say, this was a purchase that was beyond worth it.

    I decided to leave a review today when I went through my hair with the lava after not straightening for a couple days and was amazed by the smoothness of my ends and how easily it glided through my hair. Would recommend to anyone. This will be with me until it’s life is up… then I’ll buy another.

    Thank you Chi for saving my hair 💜 and the leave in silk treatment is to die for as well, great combo. My hair has never been softer.

  27. Judy

    I love this flat iron. No more waiting for a hot tool. It heats in seconds. It’s easy to use and my hair looks great.

  28. Donna

    With 11′ of cord, this is so easy to work with. Fine hair doesn’t burn due to ability to adjust heat settings. Sadly, I left this at my sisters house during a visit. She refuses to ship it to me so I’ll be purchasing a new CHI flat iron.

  29. Vanessa (verified owner)

    Overall I have loved the look and use of this hair styling tool. I have fine hair so be aware of lowered tool setting. My hair was steaming from initial use. It looked smooth and shiny with appropriate low temperature setting. I have enjoyed the long cord as well as tie to allow organization for storage. I highly recommend this product!

  30. Aleigha Cullifer (verified owner)

    Best flat iron I ever bought! Works great!!!!

  35. KaylaL (verified owner)

    I absolutely love my new chi straightener, I had one of the Onyx and absolutely loved it, for 5 years. Then it was making my hair smell burnt. It was time to toss it, I used it on 450. On the lava I only have to go up to 300. It makes my hair feel awesome! I will never buy another off brand straightener again. CHI IS THE WAY TO GO!

  36. Sarah (verified owner)

    Very sleek and smooth!

  37. Mel (verified owner)

    Love my Chi!
