Truth be told, I don’t remember the first time someone recommended a CHI flat iron to me. I’ve heard so many good things about the brand over the years though and know it’s top choice for many of my friends, so you can imagine my excitement when they offered to send over a sample of their new collection with JCPenny.
I’ve used the same hair straightener since high school, so I was eager to give this colorful tool a shot. Keep reading to find out if this JCPenny exclusive CHI flat iron really is worth the hype, and if I think you should invest in this new line or save your hard earned cash for a better release.
Is a CHI Flat Iron Worth It? || Review & Unboxing
As of the time I’ll be publishing this post, you can snag the CHI Paint Party 1″ Flat Iron on sale for only $89.99. This includes not only the pretty, colorful ceramic CHI flat iron but also a cute gold fanny pack. If you’re hitting up festival season or just need a convenient place to store your valuables this summer, it’s a cool bonus.
For a flat iron, I think this a great deal. It’s a reasonable price point, but you should still be able to get good use out of the product for a long time.
Heat Up Time
The box claims that this hair straightener is able to heat up in 30 seconds. Honestly, I found it to take even less time than that! It’s a pain waiting for styling tools to warm, especially if you’re someone who gets ready last minute like me. I love that this CHI flat iron heats up insanely fast, making easy to get my hair done and run out the door in no time.
One of the things that I think is really neat about this CHI hair straightener is that it has six different settings, with the ability to heat up to a maximum of 410 degrees Fahrenheit. Not everybody has thin, easy-to-style hair like me, so it’s nice that this flat iron should be able to accommodate a variety of different hair textures and thicknesses.
A random thing I appreciated about this 1″ flat iron was the fact that it has an 11 ft. cord. Talk about convenient, right? Filming was incredibly easy with this tool, but I could also see this feature being helpful for someone who travels as sometimes outlets aren’t always located in the best spots — especially if there’s multiple people trying to get ready in the same hotel room!
If you’re shopping for a new hair straightener, I love that there are six different patterns of this specific 1″ CHI flat iron at JCPenny to choose from. They’re all bright, colorful, and perfect for spring!
Now for my totally unbiased final thoughts…
In all honestly, I had zero qualms about this CHI hair straightener. The product worked better than I even imagined, and it made stying my hair even quicker than usual due to the super fast heat up time. I don’t think you can get any better than this for this price point, and I would absolutely recommend this flat iron if you’re in the market for a new hair straightener.
