  • I purchased it at Target for somewhere around $110, it was very pricey, but the ladies that I know that own this say that it is totally worth the price, so I decided to take their word on it and buy it
  • I bought it without any problems, and I was anxious to try it out because I really put in a lot of money into this product
  • The cord is really long which is also a plus, which means I can travel with it to different parts of the room without a problem or let it extend if I want to use a different power outlet
  • The power button is right next to the ceramic plate, and also in between both of them which I didn't like because I thought of it of like a hazard because while the iron is on and hot, when you want to turn it off it will stay hot and you just might burn yourself
  • It is very pricey though, I don't recommend it to those on a budget

      I purchased a new Chi hair straightener flat iron about a month ago because I’ve heard so many raves about this flat iron, so I just had to buy it for myself. It’s the original 1 inch ceramic iron, the model name is Farouk GF1001. I purchased it at Target for somewhere around $110, it was very pricey, but the ladies that I know that own this say that it is totally worth the price, so I decided to take their word on it and buy it. I bought it without any problems, and I was anxious to try it out because I really put in a lot of money into this product. When I opened the box it was a thin and small iron, fairly small, so that was a plus because it wasn’t going to get in the way if

      I put it around my bedroom or bathroom. The cord is really long which is also a plus, which means I can travel with it to different parts of the room without a problem or let it extend if I want to use a different power outlet. The power button is right next to the ceramic plate, and also in between both of them which I didn’t like because I thought of it of like a hazard because while the iron is on and hot, when you want to turn it off it will stay hot and you just might burn yourself. I did not like the fact that they put it there, really inappropriate.

      I used it the next week on my hair when I needed it straightened, so I plugged it in and I was just waiting to be amazed. I ...


      • parted my hair and took the first couple of strands of hair and put it on the ceramic plates, and instantly my hair was straightened by the heat. Yes! I was amazed! Usually I would have to slide the iron down my hair about 2 or 3 times to get a complete straightened look but this only took 1, but of course to ensure it being straight I did it twice. It left my hair looking sexy and straight, also very silky might I add too. I had no problems with straightening my hair, it took me only like 15 to 20 minutes to do my whole head because this iron works very fast!

        Another con about this product is the temperature setting. The problem is there is no temperature setting! What the heck? What were they thinking when they made a

        flat iron without any temperature setting? What if it’s too hot?! What do you do when you need to lower the temperature because you’re afraid of burning your hair? This is major negative about this iron, I really would have expected better. I find it as if this iron has 2 saftey hazards! One because of the power button being right next to the hot ceramic plates and the other because there is no temperature setting so you have no options of adjusting the heat! Not good.

        Overall though, the Chi flat iron works amazingly, it straightens my hair instantly without any problems of burning my hair. It leaves my hair looking real sleek and smooth! Although I do wish there were some safety changes to this iron, it works pretty well. It is very pricey though, I don’t recommend it to those on a budget.
