CHI 44 Iron GuardBefore you Straighten:
Shampoo and Condition the hair with your favorite CHI shampoo and conditioners.
Always make sure that your hair is 90-95% dry and combed through.
Apply your favorite CHI styling products to the hair. We suggest: 
CHI 44 Iron Guard and CHI Silk Infusion.

Using your CHI Auto-Digital Ceramic Flat Iron
Section the hair and start with a section approx. ½ inch (1 cm) in thickness. 
Start from underneath and work your way up.

Thinner sections = more intense, thorough heat
Thicker sections = less heat directed to the section

Continue styling ½ inch sections until entire head is finished.

Flat Irons and Wet Hair

Question:
Can I use a CHI Volume flat iron on wet hair?  – Kiki via email

Answer:
NO! A very passionate no, but let me explain…

CHI Volume 3/4Technically you can use any flat iron on wet hair, but that doesn’t mean you should. Your already delicate hair is much more vulnerable when it is wet. This means it’s subject to more breakage and damage then when it’s dry. Doesn’t sound like the greatest time to start running a red hot appliance down your hair strands does it?

No, of course not.

Not only will using a flat iron on wet hair potentially cause damage to your hair strands (as will all flat irons, not just the CHI Volume flat iron) it will also inhibit your styling results, and lead to poor performance of the iron. No one wants that.

CHI Wet-to-Dry Flat IronI would never use a flat iron on wet hair unless it’s a wet-to-dry model, and even then I’d want my hair 90%-95% dry. The healthier you can keep your hair the better, this means only using your flat iron when your hair is 100% dry. Thanks for asking, now please put that notion out of your head.
