CHI X Zendaya

The talk of the town may have been Zendaya’s daring blonde mullet at the Grammy’s a while bac, but now, it’s all about the super babe’s #REALisBEAUTIFUL campaign with haircare giant, CHI. That’s right, it’s probably the best collab any of us could have imagined.


On top of giving me the chance to hang with CHI’s first celeb ambassador, Zendaya, for the night, I was also given the fab opportunity to try its oh-so-cute (and at the same time, effective) CHI Escape 1” Professional Cordless Styling Iron ($109.99). Yes, you read that right, this is 2016 – it’s time for you to have a cordless styling iron that you can pull out for touch ups in between those runs from work to a hot date, or after a hearty workout, en route to Sunday brunch with your girls, obvs. Not only is the CHI Escape cordless, but I promise you that it’s only about 1.5 the length of the average pen. Unlike a selection of other CHI products, the styling iron also has 3 different heat settings (340°F, 375°F, and 392°F) that are fitting to the type of hair you’re dealing with. Although the battery on the CHI Escape lasts for about a half an hour, the convenient travel pouch has just the perfect amount of room for both the car and wall chargers, as well as the CHI Escape itself.

Apart from your styler, I also highly recommend toting along your own travel-size bottle of the CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protecting Spray ($15). In all honesty, CHI’s Iron Guard Protecting Spray has always been my go-to, as it is so light and unnoticeably there.

StraightenerIf you believe your hair is one of your most workable assets, I don’t lie when I say that carrying the CHI Escape around would be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made. Zendaya’s hair is literally always perfect, so why can’t ours be too?

    This is amazing! Im excited that Zendaya (Zenslaya) and my all time favorite hair styling product are collaborating. I’ve used CHI’s products before and I’ve had at least two or three of their hair tools. I remember the first time I used a CHI flat iron I was amazed because it made my curly hair really flat and it almost looked natural. I would love to see CHI make a portable curling iron. I love the idea of this small travel flat iron but I would never really be able to use it on my natural hair because it is way too curly and I have way too much hair for that little travel sized thing but perhaps I’d use it to touch up my hair when I flatten it and don’t have time to go home and touch it up.
