How To Use a Chi Flat Iron on Hair

Published at 03/15/2012 20:45:47


The Chi hair iron is one of the most popular and recognized hair irons available in the world. It is not the very first hair iron invented but it's most definitely the most advanced. The Chi hair iron provides 44 ceramic technology, several features and settings as well as different plate sizes to customize for your own hair.

Step 1

When using a Chi hair iron, it's important to know the very basics on how to operate the hair iron and how to use the device. The first step is to make sure your hair is either completely dry or damp. You do not want to use a chi hair iron on soaking wet hair, so make sure you at least pat dry your hair to get excess water out.

Step 2

The second step to using a chi hair iron is to start with your hair products. If you have fine and thin hair, you'll want to use a heat protective spray, to protect your locks! If you have curly and thick hair, you'll want to use a straightening balm before using your Chi hair iron.

Step 3

The third step to using a Chi hair iron is to part your hair. Regardless of texture and color, you'll want to part your hair into four or five even sections. This makes it easier, because it allows you to focus on one part of your hair at a particular time.

Step 4

The fourth step to using a Chi hair iron is to take one of the sections of parted hair and clamp the Chi hair iron down on the section. You will want to begin as close to the scalp as possible (watch out that you do not burn your scalp). You then will want to glide the Chi hair iron down the length of your hair. You will then repeat the process with that particular section of parted hair, until you see the results you want. Also, keep repeating the exact same process on every single section of your parted hair, until you've found that your hair is straight and it's to your liking.

Step 5

The fifth step to using a Chi hair iron is to use a serum gloss on your hair, for the final step. The serum gloss will help keep your straightened hair in place and will add a bit of extra shine and gloss to your new styled hair.


The Chi hair iron is priced between $99.00 to $300.00, depending on which model you purchase. Usually, you can purchase the chi hair iron in your local department store, such as Walmart or Target. However, you can also buy it online or through the official Chi store. Please pay close to attention to the product description if you're buying online though, as there are many knock off or fake Chi hair irons out there.


The Chi hair iron is the most used hair iron in the professional beauty world. The best part about the Chi hair iron is that you can beautify your hair at home and make it look like you stepped right out of a high-end salon.
