CHI Original Pro 1″ Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener Review

Every lady would love to get her own styling iron to prepare her looks for the day because we all want to look lovely every day. But to do that, we need to get our own styling tools that we can consider “reliable” on times when we need to look beautiful. One styling iron that ladies prefer to use is the CHI Original Pro 1″ Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener.

CHI Original Pro 1″ Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener Review

This CHI Ceramic Hairtsyling iron is considered as a professional salon model flattening iron that is designed to create silky hair and it also instantly leaves the hair with a silky shine. It uses far infrared heating to help reduce frizz and static. It can also be used to easily straighten, curl, flip and wave the hair. It could also help eliminate static, reduces frizz and it also easily heats up to help you save time.

This flat iron for the hair is an innovative technology that features a combination of Tourmaline Ceramic and Far Infrared. Tourmaline Ceramic helps with the even heat distribution and it produces an exceptionally high amount of negative ions. Meanwhile, Far Infrared could reduce static electricity to create a perfect hairstyle.


One reason why we prefer this Chi flat iron is because of its results. After straightening the hair, the result is a beautiful shiny hair which only takes about 15 minutes to get the results you want, of course, it depends on the length of your hair. It heats up easily which means you don’t have to wait for a long time before you could use it.

You also won’t be needing any anti-frizz serum because this iron reduces frizz leaving you with a smooth hair, as if you were actually born with that kind of hair! You might even look like you actually came from a beauty salon. It even works well for long coarse dry hair and will make it look a lot better. But for best results, you can try applying HSI PROFESSIONAL Thermal Protector 450 with Argan oil or ArtNaturals Thermal Hair Protector on your hair. This way, the moisture of your hair will be kept intact and your hair will be healthier despite being exposed to heat.

The build quality is high, it doesn’t creak or make noises when in use and the cord is long enough to reach most plugs. It also has a swivel on the cord to prevent twisting and damaging the cord.

So far, there are no issues of heating on the iron but to make sure, just use a Kiloline Professional Heat Resistant Glove to protect your hands.


The hair straightening iron has only one year warranty and if it breaks after that, you can send it back to their website if you bought it from there but you have to pay $35 to fix it. But the item looks great again and is in good condition after being fixed.

And for those who are looking for a temperature adjustment, this one doesn’t have one but it it heats up easily anyway. Some hairstyling flat irons usually have defects on the heat adjustments. So not having one could also be a bit of an advantage.

Another disadvantage for this flat iron is that it has many fake versions. Hence, you have to see to it that you will get the genuine one which is a lot more expensive the fake ones. To make sure that you will get the real CHI Original Pro 1″ Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener, we have some points here that you need to check.

How to Distinguish Authentic Chi Iron from Fake Ones


The plug of an authentic Chi iron has a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) with a reset button. But an exception to this are the Chi Digital Nano 1.25″, CHI Mini 1″ and the CHI Volumizing Iron that comes with UL-Certified power cord instead.


An authentic Chi iron will have a warning label and information are engraved on the iron. Fake ones have stickers bearing the information. But the Chi Nano irons are an exception since they use a clear sticker with warning and iron information.

Switch and LED

Original Chi 1″ irons have an LED light next to its on/off switch. The LED will be clear when the iron is off and is red when it is on. Fake ones stay red even when off.

Other Fake Characteristics

You can also take a look at the position of the logo which should be printed directly in the center of the round plastic cap of the handle. It also have floating plates that do not snag on your hair and could distribute hear more evenly. Those that are from counterfeit manufacturers would simply screw the plates.

Final Thoughts

If you are looking for the best hair straightener that you can use for years, this one is good option because of its good build and it can also give you better results than other flat irons. It may be more expensive but it is a good beauty investment that you will never regret.
