I am just wondering... I have a CHI and I honestly love it..it makes my hair really straight it heats up wicked fast and I honestly have no complaints. I have really weird hair..its half straigh and hlaf curly and its really really thick and the CHI works perfect for me. Ive been reading the threads on here about GHD and Sedu and how people love them over the CHI and then there are the people who love CHI over all of the others. People have said CHI snags their hair or damages it...and I havnt noticed any unusal damage. (if you flat iron and blow dry your hair theres gonna be damage from the heat no matter what). So I guess its just a preference when it comes to flat irons?!!! Sorry if this is silly..i was just wondering!
