May 12, 2021

Hi Faith. The CHI Lava Spin-N-Curl is a ceramic barrel that is infused with Lava Minerals which allows for styling at lower temperatures and more shine whereas the original is a ceramic barrel.

What is the little piece that comes with it for?

May 12, 2021

Hi Brenda. Is a cleaning tool for the inside of the iron. Please see instructions in the gallery of this page on how to use it.

January 2, 2021

Hit or miss. I don’t like the fact that I can’t get to do shorter hair in front like long bangs. When I use it, normally it gets tangled 2-3 times per strand before I get curling iron to catch the hair which is very frustrating. I went online and watched several videos on how to use it and I have still not found the holy grail on how to be consistent in getting the iron to catch my hair into the chamber.. I have long hair and even when I use less hair it gets caught. When it does curl the hair, you do get a nice curl but it really doesn’t last all day. It did leave a nice full wave he next day. It’s kind of scary when your hair gets tangled and you start hearing the beeping but it does release the hair after a second or two but its still pretty painful when it does get caught and you see the iron smoking. To reset the curling iron you have to press and hold the power button. I do like the fact that you don’t have to sit around curling your hair with a curling wand but overall, I would not have bought the product and will probably go back to a regular curling iron. I am looking into the cool shot which everyone seems to like. At least you can get the shorter hair if you have a layered hair style.

May 12, 2021

Make sure your hair is combed out and tangle free before starting. Section the hair and take small one inch subsections and feed the hair from the root area. Hit the directional curl button until it beeps and stops spinning. Then wait until you hear the 3 beeps after the 15, 17, or 19 seconds, this means the curl is set. Another tip to help it last all day is to lightly mist the hair with CHI Infra Texture Spray prior to curling.

Hi! I have naturally frizzy hair, but it holds curl really well. My biggest issue is that I have fine and gross motor skill issues (and my arms fatigue really easily) so I have a terrible time curling my own hair with a traditional wand. Which Spin n curl model is easiest to use?

May 12, 2021

Hi Addy. The Original CHI Spin-N-Curl would be the easiest to use.

Can this be used on hair extensions?

David Vargas
September 9, 2020

The CHI Lava Spin-N-Curl can be used on real human hair extensions at a lower heat setting. If the hair is synthetic I would not recommend using a hot tool.

September 9, 2020

Does this work well on hair that has tape on extensions in it? Or might it pull and damage the extensions?

October 23, 2020

I have 16” extensions and use this all the time. It doesn’t pull my extensions at all. I LOVE it.

What’s the difference between the lava spin curl and the air spin curl? I have been trying to find, but have been unsuccessful. Thank you

David Vargas
July 26, 2020

The main difference between the CHI Lava Spin N Curl and the CHI Spin N Curl is the CHI Lava is infused with lava minerals that allows for more consistent heat and for the hair to be styled at a lower temperature, whereas the CHI Spin N Curl is made with our Ceramic Technology.

January 25, 2021

Um, so what is the benefit, ultimately for the user? Does the lava curl your hair faster? Is it easier on your hair? Does the curl hold longer? Does it product more consistently shaped curls? Put it in terms that mean something rather than just explaining the construction and technology, please. Why would I pay more for this version?

May 11, 2021

Ha Katrina. The CHI Lava is Ceramic and mineral Lava infused which allow you to style at lower temperature with better results. both irons have the setting to change the temperature and to set the time which determine the lasting of your curls.

March 15, 2020

so i dont have course hair just ALOT of hair. do the curls tend to stay longer than a conventional curler? and on average how long does it take to curl a head of hair??

David Vargas
March 17, 2020

It will depend on products that you are using. If you want the curls to last we recommend using a heat protectant hair spray like infra texture. It is hard to give a specific time because it really depends on how long, and thick the hair is. It will take a few tries to get used to the Spin n Curl versus a traditional curling iron. After my wife’s third try she now does her hair in 20-25 minutes.

February 17, 2020

will it work on hair that’s only 4-5″ lonh

David Vargas

Yes – it works great on short and long hair.

  1. Samantha

    I found that this gives my hair nice curls, and found that my hair only got stuck if it was my own error, as it does stop it immediately and beeps rapidly if your hair gets caught. It doesn’t hurt that much when it does get stuck, and it doesn’t pull your hair out, making it easy to remove if needed. I have really long hair thick hair, so there were a few sections I had to do twice, but I think that was human error on my part. I also found that you’re supposed to hold the button down and let it automatically stop rotating in order to get the full curl all the way down to the ends. It’s a great too and I like that I don’t have to worry about my hands getting burned. Also, it seems that I’m able to use a very low setting to achieve effortless shiny curls. I used mine on about 290 which again I have thick long curly hair (I wanted this product to create effortless curls)

  2. dwadas

    Best purchase ever. Curl holds really well!

  3. chandni2659

    The SPIN AND CURL is my fave it’s so easy and fast to achieve those beautiful locks with it. it’s awesome😍💕

  4. pazy22 @andresv15

    Love the #Spin N Curl it’s super easy to use! And gives you gorgeous curls in a sec!!!

  5. Karen Jonas

    My all time favorite product so far is the CHI LAVA Spin N Curl. I saw it online and saw a video of Bradley Tuggle doing a demo. Then Cosmoprof had an awesome sale and I got it with some bio silk products which I have used for nearly a decade and the purchase was made. I have used it many times and my clients and fellow students (I’m a cosmetology student in Ohio) love it.

    The curls I get from it are beautiful and I can take long thick hair and have it curled in probably half the time then using a marcel or spring iron.

  6. Ericka Adams

    I love the Volcanic Lava Ceramic Pro Spin and Curl because it creates such beautiful flowing curls with ease!

  7. Lacia Synnes

    I am obsessed with CHI Spin N Curl! Perfect for everyday curls or for wedding styles. Very versatile.

  9. sparklesva1

    Love the CHI Spin N Curl. I’m infamous for burning my fingers when curling my hair, the Spin and Curl keeps my fingers burn free!

  10. Candace

    This product is awesome!!!!

  11. Victoria

    Chi is my all time favorite hair styling tool. They never cease to amaze me! Best hair tools around!!

  12. Shurst

    Can’t wait to try mine, I’ve loved all my chi products. Great quality, they last for years and don’t damage my hair!

  13. Samantha

    This thing is amazing. My only gripe with it is since cutting a lot of my hair off, it’s not as easy to use as my miracurl 3. However, I’m a lot more comfortable with this device than my miracurl. I’m awful at curling my hair so this is great. It also makes doing the back really easy because theres no fumbling with pressing it down like you have to with the miracurl. Should have a guide on how to create different curls with this though!

  14. Courtney Moore

    Great for already damage or colored hair

  15. Valeria Treviño

    Better than babyliss’ similar product.

  16. sjpatel190 (verified owner)

    I love my chi spin n curl. I had tried so many tools before but nothing gave me result like this. I don’t have to worry about my finger getting burned. It’s makes flawless curl within a minute. I will definitely recommend my friends to get this product.

  17. Mary

    Love using this product! It Is so easy! It makes beautiful curls in seconds without damaging my hair! Plus, I can’t burn myself like I tend to do with other products. Highly recommend

  18. Monica Hanten (verified owner)

    I LOVE this styling tool. I have straight hair that will not hold a curl. I have tried everything to try to curl my hair. I would curl it and within an hour it is straight. With the Chi spin and curl it makes perfect curls and so easy to use. I still have body and some curl the next day. I am going to purchase one for my daughter who has the same hair type as I do. Amazing!!!

  19. colleen renzoni (verified owner)

    I cannot say enough about this product! It is amazing!! I have developed carpal tunnel, this takes a lot of stress off of hands. My clients are loving their curls & I don’t hurt!!! THANK YOU!!!

  20. LS (verified owner)

    This is the best invention ever! I don’t even like drying my hair, but do now so that I can use this frustration free curler! I can do my whole head in about 10 minutes and I have long thick hair. Thank you for making such an easy to use curler! It’s a game changer for sure

  22. Tara (verified owner)

    This is absolutely the best hair purchase I’ve ever made! Before getting the Spin N Curl I would just stick to straightening my hair because I never got the hange of curling…not anymore! The Spin N Curl is so easy to use and makes a perfect, shiny curl every time. If I can use it with my limited hair skills, anybody can! Totally recommend!!

  23. Olga

    Best curling fan I ever used

    Fantastic curler! It is just as easy as shown in the videos. It took me about the same time as using a wand, but it was a more consistent curl, a lot simpler, and I didn’t have any danger of burning my fingers. I’m giving this to my 12-year-old daughter. Much simpler than using a traditional curling iron.

  27. Jess

    This. Is. The. GOAT.
    Plain and simple. You want easy. It’s here. You crave perfection. It’s here. YOU WANT TO FLIP YOUR HAIR LIKE THE GODDESS YOU ARE – use this first.
    Two VERY enthusiastic thumbs up, Chi!

    I love this!! I’ve been telling everyone about it. It’s easy to use, heats quickly!

  32. Devon (verified owner)

    This device is an amazing piece of technology. I actually began to cry when I first used it because I am in my 30s and have purchased and used every kind of curling iron available on the market. I have tried countless times to get the locks of the YouTubers who make wands and clamp irons look like child’s play, and have never been successful. This tool makes curling my hair easy and safe. You cannot burn yourself and hair doesn’t get tangled. I find I can get to the back of my head without straining my arm, and I am able to work in layers alternating directions to construct precisely the look I want. I cannot recommend this tool enough.

  33. Chelsea (verified owner)

    Absolutely amazing product, i haven’t curled my hair in years because other tools either are too complicated, too hot for my fine hair and steadily broke down my hair.. but not this tool! I may have fine hair, but i have a lot and it still only took maybe 15 to do my entire head, if i take my time. I look and feel more confident with my curls from the lava spin (:

  34. Chey (verified owner)

    Awesome products!

  35. Darla

    It is terrific. I have thick long hair, (Polynesian hair) and it works great! Plus I don’t burn myself.

  36. Victoria (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this . So easy to use and leaves my hair feeling soft

  37. Jennifer (verified owner)

    This is a miracle worker. I have thick and coarse hair. It takes me an hour to blow dry my hair, I have to straighten my hair to be able to curl it and it look polished. Needless to say my arms are TIRED after doing my hair. I usually let my hair air dry to relieve my arms and save my strength for straightening and curling. I have tried so many heat tools and I have become hopeless. I read the reviews on multiple websites, watched tutorials, and contemplated whether this would disappoint just like other products. I have used a heat comb and instylers along with straighteners and curling irons and products. I am always looking to save time with doing my hair. I got this in the mail, after letting my hair air dry I tried this and instantly I was AMAZED at how polished the curls looked. I didn’t have to straighten my hair before curling. It takes me 2 hours to straighten and curl my hair. It took my 28 minutes to curl my hair with the chi lava spin n curl. It may have gone quicker if I wasn’t snap chatting this wonderful product to my friends! This is the essential hot tool! It’s day 3 and my curls are still intact.

  38. Emily (verified owner)

    This is probably the best purchase I have made in a long time. I have never been able to curl my hair, I would watch videos all the time to try to learn. After using this, I will never have a problem again. People complement my curls all the time and think a professional has curled my hair. It would take me over an hour to curl my hair before, now it only takes me 15 minutes.

  39. Daniela Mujica

    I love it!!!! Is not heavy, is easy to use and I don’t burn myself lol! Amazing purchase.

  40. Mallory (verified owner)

    So far I’ve only used it once to test it but I am very pleasantly surprised. It took very little time to do all of my hair and I only had trouble with one section in the back because the section was too big.

  41. Kay (verified owner)

    I can not do hair. I am the ponytail everyday, my messy bun is to messy girl. I Watched the video on the CHI spin and curl and had no problems as a first time user! I love this tool! It’s seriously dummy Proof. I really appreciate the safety features. When my hair started to tangle the rotation shut off. I also like that it seems impossible to accidentally burn myself or my daughter. I used this on my energetic 4 year old with no tears and no worries. Everyone I know couldn’t believe I did my own hair. They wanted to know my secret. This is my second tool made by CHI, so far both have proven to be great quality. Customer service is quick to respond via email and knowledgeable. (Pic taken after a full day of work and some time in the wind)

  42. Christy Martin

    I love this product so much! I have weak hands from previous surgeries and super thick hair. I’m not willing to cut it short so a device like this is so helpful. The curls stay in my hair until washed. Chi-feel free to contact me for a hair model. I love your products.

  43. Stefanie Pope

    Wonderful product!

    I purchased the spin and curl and I absolutely loved it! I use all chi products and this is the best ever! There is just one down fall about the spin and curl, chi needs to make it in a 3”! That would be wonderful! I’ve never been able to get such curls by myself and chi has totally out did themselves this time! Great hair curler! Ty chi!

  44. Karyn (verified owner)

    My son bought me this and the Chi lava curling iron for my birthday this year. I received it in the beginning of September but had to wait for the weather to get cooler. Three weeks ago me and my 2 daughters went to get our hair done at the beauty parlor and waited a couple of days before using it. When we took it out I was kind of nervous thinking our hair would get caught. So we watched videos and played around with it, and let me tell you the results were outstanding. The curls came out beautiful, bouncy and they stay a long, long, long time and we’ve gotten plenty of compliments.

    You gotta understand I wanted to get the original one (or) the con air last year but I was intimidated. I’M SO HAPPY I chose this product, when my son first asked me what I wanted I told him I’m not sure, then a week later I thought about the spin and curl, went on line and did research and picked the lava.

    I ❤️❤️❤️ this, thanks for making such a great product! A million ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    ***Ladies no one told me to say this or try to hype this product up, know this is from using it myself. You saw my review, hope you get the same results, purchase it 😘.

  45. Jordan

    works wonders! just ordered my mom one as well, it will come in the mail tomorrow! so excited to use before attending a wedding this weekend.

  46. linda richards

    I just love this. I bought one 2 years ago and later got hair cut short. Gave it to one of the granddaughters. Let hair grow a little longer bought another and told my daughter and she bought one and today i had my granddaughter to order one for the other granddaughter for her birthday. It is fast and makes your hair curl easy and is great if your hair is really curly because it will smooth it out.{ I wouldn’t have orderd 4 if they wasn’t any good.

  47. Mary Braud (verified owner)

    So happy with this product I very rarely do anything to my hair because I don’t have the patience. With this, I was able to make beautiful curls with all my hair in less than 15 minutes. Super easy to use and excellent results!! I’m so happy I indulged myself and bought this!!

    I was hesitant to buy this but so pleased I did. My daughter used it on her hair with excellent results and no problems. I tried it on mine and it kept jamming. No problem removing my hair and repeating. Eventually I discovered I could use it if I held it horizontally rather than vertically. Since then no problems! Fast and beautiful curls. The best curling product I’ve tried.
