On the other hand, the CHI Be Flamazing Ceramic Flat Iron comes with a cool flamingo design that looks so attractive. Its bubbly design is just eye-catching. It is also equipped with the best and latest technology in the flat iron industry. Its ceramic and tourmaline plates are built evenly and smoothly ensuring even heat distribution throughout the plates for a fantastic styling. The smooth ceramic plates also ensure a smooth glide through the hair sections without a snag or painful pull.

From the ceramic and tourmaline plate technology that ensures an even heat spread to the smooth ceramic plates that eliminate snags, you are assured of high-quality styling results. With this flat iron, you will get the best results with less frizz and overall healthy-looking hair.
Apart from the excellent technology, the CHI Leaf Me In The Tropics also comes with a 40-second heat up. This reduces the styling time and ensures you are never late. With a maximum temperature of 392° F, it can handle itself well with most hair types. It comes with a high quality 11 ft. long professional swivel cord for convenient styling and ease of movement. It also has a Universal Dual Voltage feature making it perfect for all your international travels, but it requires an adapter. The 2-year manufacturer’s warranty is a bonus on such an incredible device.
The CHI Be Flamazing also comes with a 40-second heat up to a maximum of 392°F. However, unlike the CHI Leaf Me In The Tropics, the CHI Be Flamazing comes with an adjustable temperature setting perfect for fine, medium or coarse hair types. This gives it an added advantage since you can choose the perfect temperature setting for your hair. In addition to that, it also comes with a digital LCD temperature display for temperature monitoring ensuring you get that perfect temperature setting for your hair type.
CHI Be Flamazing also comes with the basic things that also comes with the Leaf Me In The Tropics such as an 11 ft. long swivel cord for styling convenience. It also has Universal Dual Voltage built-in making it perfect for your international travels and just like the competition, it requires an adapter too. The manufacturer offers a 2-year limited warranty on this item as well.
It is now time to decide. The CHI Leaf Me In The Tropics, despite its good looks and design, is not as versatile as the CHI Be Flamazing. It is so under matched here due to its lack of features. The CHI Be Flamazing has a temperature setting dial and a digital LCD temperature display. All these features lack in the Be Flamazing which was a big disappointment. The CHI Be Flamazing also has far superior ceramic and tourmaline plate technology as compared to the ceramic plate in the Leaf Me in the Tropics. They are smoother with a much better feel to them. The Leaf Me In The Tropics has also had reports of it burning peoples hair. For one gorgeously designed flat iron, it lacks so much and it was, therefore, a great disappointment.
At comparably similar prices, the CHI Be Flamazing is the better option. You won’t be disappointed especially if your hair is in the medium type category. Your comments about your experiences with any of these two flat irons are always welcomed in the comments section below.
