For 7 almost 8 years I have been using the plain black version of the CHI Straightener. While I love it, I do think a colored or patterened version would be cute to have. So when I got the opportunity to test out a hair tool from the CHI Spring launch collection exclusively from JCPenny’s, I pretty much jumped at the chance.
A CHI straightener is a one stop shop for all your hair styling needs. Seriously. Straighten, style, curl and wave your hair with this one tool!
Exclusively at JCPenney’s online, this collection features 5 different irons in vibrant colors and patterns! It has 6 heat settings, reaching a maximum temperature of 410º. The line also has an automatic shut off feature for worry free styling. I mean who else has to triple check that they shut off their straightener?!
With a versatile all in one ergonomic design, each iron uses advanced ceramic technology to create silky, shiny, and frizz free hair instantly. Straighten, curl, flip or wave with just one tool!
And when you buy from this collection, each iron comes with a metallic, rose gold fanny pack! GUYS IT’S ROSE GOLD FANNY PACK! I mean, could it be anymore trendier?!
I THOUGHT YOU WERE GONNA SHOW US HOW YOU STYLE YOUR HAIR?
Be patient, my children, this is what I do: if you remember, I get my hair re-bonded once a year so my hair is always straight, but not styled.
I section my hair so I can focus solely on a smaller (and thinner!) portion
Then I take an even smaller part and run the iron across it
I spray a heat protectant then I start smoothing out my hair. When I get to the ends, I flip them inward. After I’m done (which can take up to 2 hours, I have super thick hair and am meticulous) I spray some hairspray just to ensure the styling stays.
If I’m feeling extra fancy, I’ll curl my hair. The 1″ ceramic plate is just the right size for my hair. I spray the heat protector again, then take a small section of my hair, wrap it around the plate and pull the straightener through. Again, this can take up to 3 hours since my hair is thick.
So there you have it! How I style my hair with the new CHI straightener from their Spring launch at JCP!
