The plates of the CHI G2 are made of ceramic, ensuring equal distribution of heat. New to this hair straightener is the combination of two materials incorporated into the styling plates: ceramic and titanium. Titanium is extremely sturdy and can straighten even the most thick and coarse hair. This straightener has pre-set temperature settings for fine, normal, and coarse hair. With a single press of the button, you can quickly and easily select the right temperature for your hair type. The plus and minus buttons allow you to set the temperature at 5°C intervals, with 220°C being the highest temperature.
