CHI Ceramic Hairstyling 1-Inch Iron is a professional salon model flattening iron designed to create silky hair while instantly leaving hair with a silky shine. This product uses far infrared heating to help reduce frizz and static.
Ladies and gentlemen, today is a sad day. Today, I admit that my beloved CHI ceramic flat iron has gone to heating tools heaven. It was spring of my freshman year of college, when I purchased him from Amazon. I wasn't into into the flashy, cutesy, patterned CHI flat irons, there was something serious about the classic black with yellow plates. He was my first and only CHI ever. I thought I was so official. Anybody that cared about having their straightened hair look silky with life, instead of like stiff cardboard had a CHI.
At this time I reflect on the Sunday nights spent in the bathroom frying my hair after deep conditioning, washing, and detangling throughout the day. I'm going to miss the sizzle I heard while passing the CHI through my hair, dampened with heat protectant. I'm going to miss the aroma of my burnt strands in the small space, promising myself that I wouldn't succumb to perfectionism and repeat this deadly straightening process during the week... I always succumbed.
As I look at my heat damaged bangs, I'll never forget my CHI. He stuck with me for four years strong. It only seems right to give him the proper recognition. He made sure I was looking on point at all times.
This is my ode to my CHI
Rest in Peace Beautiful
