About the Product
Our professional salon model analog hair styling irons have a versatile 'all-in-one' ergonomic design and use advanced ceramic technology to create silky, shiny, and frizz free hair instantly. Ceramic Flat Iron utilizes the latest innovative technology combining ceramic with even heat distribution, producing an exceptionally high amount of negative ions and Far Infrared which reduce static electricity for that perfect style. Hair is left smooth and silky with an unparalleled shine.
The One ’n Only Brazilian Tech Keratin 1" Straightening Iron blends titanium with liquid keratin, infusing this powerful combination into the plates of the iron to reinforce keratin’s natural strengthening, smoothing, and shine-enhancing properties. This professional styling tool is recommended for use with the keratin straightening treatment. Optimum temperatures and consistent high heat up to 450°F ensure keratin is absorbed and sealed into the hair for longer-lasting, shiny, straight results.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
CHI PRO GF-1001 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
  • I'm a man, and only use it on my bangs sometimes, and it's a really fast process which makes me happy.
  • It heated quickly and the temperature was perfect.
  • It heats up in seconds and it gets HOT.
  • It seems that the 1" Chi gets hotter than the 2" with the temperature setting, and works better for straightening.
  • The positive aspects of this one is that it does heat up more quickly and maintains it's temperature.
BaByliss CN-CPC300 Keratin Straightening Iron
  • This iron heats up super quick.
  • Heats up fast and does the job in seconds flat!
  • It heats up quickly and seems to keep the plates evenly heated.
  • It brewing a plenty of heat but it seems to cause less damage than any other I have tried!
  • It does straighten your hair but it pulls your hair, the plates don't really come together, it doesn't glide through my hair smoothly.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
CHI PRO GF-1001 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
  • Loved that it didn't snag my hair like my old flat iron did at times. Perfect travel size too!
  • I really appreciate the smaller size as well, since my last straightener was considerably larger and heavier.
  • The iron is a good size, light with a nice long cord- longer than that of my hairdryer which is helpful.
  • Worth every cent! Heats up quickly! Compact in size.
  • It's also a good size to be able to make curls/waves too.
BaByliss CN-CPC300 Keratin Straightening Iron
  • It's lightweight; a nice design.
  • It is light weight and makes my frizzy hair look great.
  • The only complaint is the white coating is already coming off.

What customers say about "Features"
CHI PRO GF-1001 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
  • The plates actually move so there is no tugging to the hair - i didn't realize how bad it was with my previous flat irons, but with this Chi everything is so smooth.
  • This iron has ceramic plates so it doesn't damage your hair.
  • The 1" ceramic plate is nice, because you can use it to make curls or straighten your hair.
  • The ceramic plates work a miracle on your hair.
  • Also, the on/off switch is in an awkward position - in between the paddles instead of on the side. It is easy to burn your fingers when you reach in to shut it off.
  • There is only one temperature setting, so it might not be good for people with delicate hair.

What customers say about "Power"
CHI PRO GF-1001 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
  • I love that it has a long cord and also has a strap to hold the cord once you wrap it up.
  • The cord is also very long and swivels where it connects to the iron, so it tangles much less frequently. The cord also has a Velcro strap for better storage and easier transportation.
  • The new swivel cord design avoids any cord frustration, and there is an attached Velcro piece that keeps the cord folded neatly and secure when not in use.
  • The only thing I dislike is the cord, which is unbearably long.
  • The cord stiff and cheap and the whole thing like a light plastic toy.
