I am so upset
I used to be a huge fan of Chi flat irons. I just loved the way they transformed my wavy, frizzy hair into sleek, straight hair and no one could tell I had straightened it that morning.
Then things started to go downhill. My first one died when I'd had it for almost two years, and I bought another one. I bought it last August, and in October, it would not heat up unless the plates were closed (?). So odd. I sent it back and they sent me a new one within a week and I was very impressed with the service.
A few days ago, I was straightening my bangs with my Chi and noticed that my hair smelled very, very much like it was burning. About a minute later, I realized that the flat iron wasn't even hot anymore. Well, my bangs got the shit fried out of them. Thank goodness I used a heat protectant but even that couldn't fully save them. But they look and feel like steel wool. It is disgusting and of course, I just got a lot cut off of my bangs and can't really get a trim for a few more weeks. So now I have crispy, fried bangs.
I just went out and bought a GHD. Not getting near another Chi again.
