A CHI hair straightener can be repaired either through the manufacturer's warranty service for basic, mechanical issues or through a repair company for damages caused by the user. The manufacturer's warranty typically covers the cost of repairs for a year after purchase.
There are restrictions on the manufacturer's warranty for the CHI hair straightener. It does not cover damages caused by the user or damages from normal wear, tear and usage. The person wishing to utilize the warranty must have proof of purchase and, in some cases, the original receipt.
The other option is to utilize a repair company. Repair companies can replace cords and repair power issues, water damage and plate damage. Some companies charge about $40 to repair a CHI hair straightener as of 2014, which is less expensive than purchasing a new one. Not all damage to hair straighteners can be repaired.
