Chi Is Out, Baby Bliss Is In!
So, I actually did not buy this from Folica.com but received it as a gift from my mom. I have thick, wavy/ curly hair and I usually need the highest heat setting. I fell in love with the Baby Bliss. II had been using a CHI since 2006 was stuck strictly on CHI brands up. I did not want to take a leap of faith and switch- i just didn't want to waste time or money- so I just kept buying a new CHI every 2-3 years.
The Baby Bliss gets my hair so extremely straight and shiny- that once I tried it- I could NOT go back to my CHI. I had an epiphany - like I had been using my CHI for so many years and then a lightbulb came on: maybe my CHI isn't so great.
My chi left my hair poofy, frizzy, and I would have to pass over and over and over again until it would straighten. And don't even get me started on the amount of hair snagging. The CHI always breaks your hair off at the ends and snags it.
Back to my Baby Bliss Review- The straightener is hands down amazing. It gives me perfectly straightened hair with the first pass. It leaves my hair super shiny and eliminates the frizz. It has never snagged or "pulled" on my hair and the best thing of all - Ive had it since 2013. It still works just as good as it did when I first got it. And when I say shiny - I mean shiny- not from the Argan Oil or the serum's but from the straightener. My hair looks almost like glass somedays. This turns my hair from tumbleweed to celebrity hair in a matter of minutes. And it last that way all day (I live in Florida) and the humidity doesn't stand a chance!
1. I used to use my CHI to curl, wave, and straighten my hair- WITH the baby bliss- its much harder to get curls with the straightener simply because of its thin plates. I can get a few curls out of it- but the curls are not the same as the ones you get from your CHI. I have a 1 inch Baby Bliss and I seriously look like I am from Saved by the Bell with a perm.
2. I've "heard" that you need to be careful with this straightener especially if you have thin hair, due to the amount of heat it puts out. I have thick hair and turn the heat UP but I do not use it everyday. Ive heard it can damage your hair pretty easily if not using a heat protectant + the correct temperature for your hair type.
3. When switching from CHI to the Baby Bliss- the handles are such different sizes- that it almost feels weird holding the baby bliss bc it it so thin. This too shall pass. You will get used to it.
