The CHI Iron & African-American Hair

Oct 10, 2004
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Heats quickly, one heat setting,does not burn hair, hair stays straight a LONG TIME

Cons:May not work as great (or at all) on different types of black hair

The Bottom Line: Ceramic irons are overall better than anything else if you are concerned with burning your hair. If your hair is manageable, I recommend it.


I'm an African-American who likes to wear my hair long with the help of relaxers and extensions. I use to always have trouble keeping my hair tame after I would wash it and believe me, it was a long and tedious process trying to straighten it with a hot-comb/curling iron. I heard from a friend that the CHI really works because it does not use metal plates, but ceramic ones that seal the hair in place. I had use a ceramic Jibere iron and it worked pretty good, so I was hoping that CHI would be even better...

BUT it worked the same as the other one.

Ceramic plates work very well on relaxed processed hair and it helped blend my real hair in with the extensions wonderfully. Since Africa-American women have all different grades of hair, I would not recommend it for very thick, coarse or damaged, dry hair. If you are a black woman who takes very good care of her hair and likes to wear it down, I recommend it. It is a little expensive, but I got my CHI on eBay for $79. If you can't spend that much, a ceramic iron from SALLY's will work just as fine!!
