Just a guess, but maybe you've heard of CHI? Of course you have! As one of the best-selling brands of hair appliances (and hair care!) we've decided to find out the scoop on why CHI is such a great brand, and we love what we found out. CHI really is different than other brands out there because of their innovative ideas and breakthrough technology. Interested? Read on...
What is CHI Technology?
The unique thing that makes CHI stand out as a brand with a huge competitive edge is the technology. Farouk Systems believes that through innovation they can offer the hairdresser and home stylist truly unique products that out perform anything else on the market.
What are the Benefits of CHI Technology?
CHI Original Hair Straightening Flat Irons use moist ceramic, ionic, far infrared heat with ceramic plates and coils to maintain an even temperature all the time, eliminating hot spots that can cause damage and breakage to the delicate hair strands. This ceramic technology in CHI irons also produces negative ions to seals the cuticle, repel humidity and lock in hair color while smoothing and straightening. Shown: Chi Turbo Ceramic 1" Flat Iron.
Flat irons made with traditional copper coils can cause damage by pulling and snagging the hair strands and drying the hair because there is no ionic technology to protect the hair from the excessively high temperature of the hair straightener. Shown: CHI Wet-to-Dry Flat Iron. See more CHI Flat Irons.
Did you know that your hair carries a positive electrical charge caused by dryness? Over time, this positive charge increases, and as your hair becomes drier, more hair cuticles open, creating unhealthy hair that is hard to style. The negative ions created by CHI appliances cancel these positive hair charges, while smoothing down the hair cuticle. Smoothing the hair cuticle seals in your hairís natural oils and moisture resulting in healthier, shinier hair. Shown: CHI Pink 1" Flat Iron.
Far Infrared Technology
Far Infrared is the longest frequency of the infrared spectrum; it is invisible to human eyes. Far infrared frequency can penetrate up to 1 Ĺ inches (4 cm) inside of the skin as well as inside of the hair. Far infrared dries the hair from the inside out due to its ionic charge by penetrating deeper. Far infrared heats up objects like your hair, and hair brush not just the air, to dry your hair faster. The recent studies have also shown that it can increase the blood circulation and metabolism. It can also help to maintain our general health. Shown: CHI Turbo Hair Dryer. See more CHI Hair Dryers.
Far infrared heat is produced in all CHI products and tools giving the user amazing performance with every product. CHI products and tools penetrate deeper into the hair and the results speak for themselves.
