Tame Your Unruly Hair With The Chi LAVA Ceramic Hairstyling Iron

Thanks to Chi for providing me with product to review. All thoughts shared are my own.

Where are my curly, wavy haired friends today? I'm here with my hand raised too and as much as I love my curls, more often than not they are so unruly that I prefer to straighten my hair.

I've been straightening my hair long before flat irons were a thing. When I was younger, I used curling irons to take the curl OUT of my hair! 

After years and years of heat exposure, I'm so excited to use a new tool that is not going to cause more damage to my hair. 

Chi was kind enough to send me the new Chi Lava Volcanic Ceramic Hairstyling Iron to try out and I am extremely impressed! It sells for $159.99 which is a pretty average price point for high-end hair tools. This flat iron is the flat iron that will ruin all other flat irons for you and I'm it's newest fan. It heats up quickly, does not burn my hands and leaves my hair so very silky.

Chi is an amazing company with high standards and a commitment to excellence as well as the environment. Their innovative products are game changers in this market!

This is an excerpt from their website, explaining the significance of the use of volcanic lava:

Sourced from some of the most effective heat-conducting materials found on earth; volcanic lava combined with the power of CHI ceramic creates smooth, sleek results without the damaging effects of high-heat styling. This innovative combination of elements offers an incredibly smooth styling surface for effortless glide-ability on unruly and coarse hair textures. Minerals found in the volcanic lava help to strengthen the hair while creating impressively silky and shiny styles. Heat damage is reduced by the ability to use lower temperature settings than traditional heat styling. With increased durability, lightweight design, and extended plate length, creating salon quality styles is easier than ever before.


The power of CHI Ceramic infused with volcanic lava derived from lava rocks provides gentle consistent heat during styling. This combination allows styling at lower than normal temperature producing less damage to the hair while offering smooth, shiny results.
  • Volcanic lava powders offer extreme durability
  • Mineral helps strengthens the hair
  • Produces Ions infusing hair hydration and shine

You'll notice it says you will not have to use as high of a heat setting to achieve the same result. This is very true. In the past, I have had to crank the heat to the max just to get through my hair. With the Chi Volcanic Lava flat iron, I can lower the heat which helps to protect my hair from damage. 

Achieving this look did not take long at all. I use big clips and clip up portions of hair, leaving small sections to straighten. Because the flat iron is so effective, I did not have to go over and over the same section of hair! I think I'm going to be quite spoiled now.

I can't sing it's praises enough. If you've been looking for a new flat iron, I give this one two very enthusiastic thumbs up! I can't wait to try more styles like the popular flat iron curls you've seen pop up in ads.
