Is there any way i can fix my chi straightener for free, after it dies?it just died and its been about a year?
i got the turbo chi for christmas last christmas (2007) and it died. thank god i had my other chi that i had not been using lately. so i used that straightener for a few days and then THAT one died tooo. i was very dissapointed because i had not been dropping either one of them or done anything wrong with them lately. my mom was just like well good, now you wont fry your hair off. but i just got it cut and its very short and curly and now i need it the most. please if you have any answers for me, id really really appreciate it.
If you have a warrantied and registered Chi, then you should be able to contact Chi directly for a repair.
And just for future reference, although Chis are nice, you might want to look into a more reliable brand like Sedu or Solia. They are much higher quality and less likely to break, even after years of use.
As a stylist, I have used a lot of flat irons/hair straighteners, including Sedu, Hai, Infrashine, Chi, Paul Mitchell, Solia, Big Sexy, Andis, Babyliss Ghd, T3, Kenta etc. You should get a Professional hair straightener, they style much better and faster, and most importantly, they protect your hair.
In terms of performance:
The best ones are: Sedu, Kenta, Solia, Infrashine, Ghd. These are top of the line professional brands
Above average: Chi, Hai, Paul Mitchell,
Average: T3, Big Sexy, Andis, Babyliss
Below Average: Conair, Vidal Sassoon, Revlon, Bed Head etc. These are cheap consumer brands that you will find in drugstore. If you care about your hair, do NOT buy them.
