Two members of the FutureDerm community recently tried out the CHI Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron. Here’s what they had to say:
The CHI Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron treats your hair with “healthy heat.” It fuses the power of CHI Ceramic with volcanic lava to provide gentle, consistent heat during styling and also allows for styling at lower temperature settings. According to CHI’s website, the tool uses volcanic lava sourced from some of the most effective heat-conducting materials found on earth. Minerals found in this volcanic lava help to strengthen the hair all while keeping it silky and shiny. The lava, combined with the power of CHI ceramic, creates smooth, sleek results without the damaging effects of high-heat styling. The CHI Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron also produces Ions infusing hair hydration and shine and is suitable for all hair textures.
I straighten my hair every day, which I know can be damaging. I’ve experienced some hair breakage with other flat irons I’ve used, so I was pleased to see that this tool has lower heat options. I started with the tool’s default setting of 370 degrees. It heats up impressively quickly and was ready to use in less than a minute. I have naturally straight hair but never fail to wake up with some unruly waves from sleeping, so just a little straightening and taming is all I need. I was not disappointed! The CHI Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron produced the smooth, sleek look I desire.
The temperature display is another feature I really like about this product. It makes it easy to tell when it’s ready to use and is a helpful reminder that it’s on — and hot! The CHI Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron is an excellent product, and I highly recommend it.
Working at FutureDerm has taught me so much about makeup and skincare. I have a solid skincare routine, and I know how to fill in my brows without making them look too dark or boxy. But when it comes to hair, that is a whole other story. My hair is thin, frizzy, and (mostly) straight so it really doesn’t need a ton of maintenance, but it definitely needs to be straightened to look presentable. I’ve been using the same cheap straightener for years so I was excited to switch it up and give the CHI Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron a try.
The first time I used the CHI Lava Ceramic Hairstyling Iron I could not believe how good my hair looked! It blew my previous straightener out of the water. Frizz and flyaways are my biggest issue, and this straightener paired with the CHI Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex made my hair look perfectly shiny and straight. I don’t even touch my old straightener anymore, because this one is the best I’ve ever used.
I know a lot of people use straighteners to curl their hair or create beachy waves, but I don’t know how to do that so I can’t speak to how this tool would do creating those styles. However, if you’re looking for a high-quality straightener that perfectly smooths your hair, this one is worth every penny!
