There is a real risk of damaging your hair if you use a flat iron or hairbrush straightening tool on wet hair (or even damp hair if you have thin hair and are not extremely careful). The quick application of heat on wet hair brings the water within the hair follicle to a quick boil, the bubbles are then pushed out resulting in split ends and cracks in the hair. At the same time, essential vitamins and minerals are forced out which further adds to the problem, reducing the hairs natural elasticity which can lead to further brittleness and breakages. All of these issues can be further compounded if you have any residual product in your hair (especially any products containing alcohol) as these chemicals are boiled into the hair follicle.

I have fine hair but this is the only straightener that works so amazing totally worth every penny
High quality ghd official sealer. Very happy with my new ghd styler. Register on official web site and u have 2 years warranty.
I recently just had a funeral for my ghd classic 1 inch hair straightener after one of the blades stopped heating. I have had this hair straightner for almost 4 years longer than any of my relationships. It is absolutely amazing and I am defintiely buying another. I have went through all kinds of straighteners such as chi and paul mitchell. A chi will only last me a year. After a couple chi's this was confirmed case. I used my ghd every day and I dropped it religiously and it has lasted much longer than expected. My mother and younger sister have the same ghd that I used and is currently four years old too and is still working. It is worth the price by far and the quality and durablility is great. It also comes with a two year warranty which is twice as long as most. It heats up in a snap and it shuts off automatically if I accidently leave it on. I have thick curly horse like hair and this thing makes it pretty. I will continue to cry on the inside until my new ghd comes in. Love you ghd
The HAI Classic Convertible Flat Iron uses ceramic heating element technology for faster heat up and even heat distribution. This hair straightener features 1 1/4 inch wide blue beveled, floating plates for styling flexibility and optimal glide. The temperature is adjustable from 250 degrees Fahrenheit to 410 degrees Fahrenheit. And we really love the fact that the dial shows you exactly what temperature you’re getting whenever you turn the heat up or down. Negative ions help smoothen your hair strands, leaving them silky and shiny.
In short YES! You absolutely can use too much heat on your hair. Burning hair is not a good smell, it’s not a good look either! You may end up having to get a pretty severe haircut if you’re not careful about the amount of heat you put directly on your locks. Read through this to get an idea of what’s safe and what will leave you wishing for a good trim (or possibly a wig).
I love this hairdryer!! I bought it because I broke my shoulder and only have the use of one arm. Before my shoulder was broken, I used a very expensive hairdryer and the best brushes. This hairdryer works better than all of my high end products. I'll never go back. The brush is big and I was concerned that it would be too much for my short hair. It will work great on any length hair. The bristles grab even the shortest hair and dry it smooth and soft. My hair is naturally curly and before trying this dryer, I'd dry my hair, straighten it and then use hot rollers. I am now achieving the same results with the Revlon dryer. I haven't written a review on a product in years but needed to share my experience with this dryer. ... full review
It’s always good hair day with this

I previously owned a basic chi for about 4 years until it recently stopped working. I bought this one after using a friend's ghd styler and I love it it does a much better job than my chi ever did and my hair stays straight for longer

great price on this straightener. I was able to register this on ghd site online with no problem. Heats up lightning fast.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this flat iron but it is really amazing. It is ready really quickly less than 20 seconds and straightens styles my hair quickly. The straightening is even seeming to last into a second day. Can't say that about my old one ... Highly recommend as a sidenote it was an authentic ghd I was able to verify register it with ghd with no problems.
Human hair wigs can be styled with heat, and they must be brushed only when dry. Synthetic and human hair wigs should be brushed dry before shampooing to remove tangles. To clean the wig, the wig should be dipped into a container with water and mild shampoo, then dipped in clear water and moved up and down to remove excess water. The wig must then be air dried naturally into its own hairstyle. Proper maintenance can make a human hair wig last for many years.
Great flat iron does the job well.
Ultra-zone with predictive technology is the latest breakthrough in heat styling which guarantees homogeneous heat across the whole plate, allowing consistent beautiful results in one stroke. The heat is monitored 250 times per second so that it’s constantly at the optimum 365°F styling temperature for even healthier hair. It personalizes power with its predictive technology, which recognizes the thickness of your hair and the speed at which you are styling and adjusts accordingly—so you get unbeatable results quicker and personalized to you!
If your hair is plagued by tangles and knots on a regular basis (even in between straightening!), try switching your hairbrush out for a wide-toothed comb! The added space in between the teeth gently separately knots and tangles without the painful “Ouch!” with each stroke. If that still isn’t enough to tame your stubborn tresses, try a wet brush! These brushes are specially designed to work through knotted, wet hair without any tugging or pulling.
love ghd this is a replacement to my first I got 9 years ago. It's used almost daily. It never has dried out or broken any hair. I tried another brand as I didn't want to spend so much but had to return it fried my hair and purchase this on.
With this hair straightener, you also get adjustable heat settings that range from 140 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit which means that it’s perfect for use whether you have thin, delicate hair or stubborn, coarse locks. We love that it has a 360-degree swivel cord, it heats up quickly, and the fact that it’s dual voltage compatible. You even get a thermal protective glove plus some leave-in argan oil with your purchase.
I haven't checked to see if its registered and original but it is phenomenal love it
excelent

works just like my old one. Was able to register it so it's not a fake.

The ghd dry and style gift set arrives in a lovely presentation box. I gave this set to my wife a present and she was highly impressed in receiving this quality brand gift set. The packaging oozes with quality and presentation style and suggests a item of high value and is bound to impress. My noted that the hair dryer was exceptionally good and based in comparison to other brands makes and styles she thought this was the best in value for money. The hair dryer is a item that my wife uses every day and important to her. She loves this the hairdryer in its handling and ability to blow dry hair as she would wish.the ghd styler is something that we have used on previous occasions when going out and wanted to look good and a bit special. There is a knack to style and but is quickly mastered with practice.given to the right person this is a gift set that is bound to please the quality of the items are very good and worth the outlay for the asking price.
ghd does not fail to impress. After my 1st ghd iv styler which worked perfectly for 11yrs stopped working I felt handicapped not forgetting my hair looked like a mop. After using my new ghd iv styler I remembered how easy straightening hair is.

these work very well as do all ghd straighteners. I have used ghds for years and once I discovered them I never looked back. I can straighten my hair in half the time compared to other similar products and my hair feels better and less damaged afterwards too. I have also received fantastic after sales service from ghd before as well so I trust the brand. These are no different they are well made and the design looks classy while they straighteners themselves do a good job and didn't leave my hair feeling frazzled and fried. The kit itself is decent in the box there were the straighteners of course a heat mat a bag to keep the straighteners in a protective 'end' to put over the hot parts of the straighteners two professional hair clips to hold your hair back while straightening and a paddle brush. These seem to all fit in the bag so it is very useful if you are travelling or even just storing it between uses. The cable is long enough to make using them a doddle and the auto switch off will help ease your mind if you are on your way to work and wondering if you have turned them off despite all this I have knocked a star off purely because they don't work as well as my ghd pinks these leave my hair feeling smooth and silky and the gold set just doesn't seem to do this quite as well. Nevertheless I would still buy them over any other brand out there.


get used far too much she loves them.... Have had several other brands waste of time. Ghd's are in a different league expensive but recommended. Very good quality items so still good value

replaced my old ghd’s. After 10 years as I thought they were losing heat these are great I stuck to the same ones as I have had other straighteners and they weren’t as good these are the real deal and don’t damage my coloured hair better the devil you know I always say

No more need for pricey keratin treatments to smooth my thick unruly mane one pass of the iron and my locks are smooth straight and shiny. Thanks ghd

although I am pretty ancient I had never used straighteners until last year when I thought I'd try them out. I bought some cheap ones which did the job but the sides used to catch on my hair and break it. I don't have enough hair as it is so definitely can't afford to tear any of it so thought I'd try these ghd ones after a friend recommended them. They cost about 5 times what the others did but they are at least 5 times better. They heat up quickly and never catch my hair. Fab. I love them.


When taming coarse, wavy or curly hair, sometimes you need a little to kick it up a notch. That’s why we love that the CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Flat Iron can reach a maximum temperature of 425° F and heats up in under a minute! With this hair straightener, say goodbye to wasted time waiting for your tool to heat up, and get styled and out in the door!

it came on time and was greatly packed. Great straightener to use overseas too on my trip all I needed was a adapter
Perfection
does exactly what it is supposed to and is a ghd. The registration worked fine although the registration numbers were not on the cord as ghd site suggests. They are actually on the label inside of the iron by the power switch and hard to read. My daughter tried one of these while in the uk and had to have one. Hopefully it lasts as they are spendy. Best price here on amazon.
Love ghd this was the cheapest price if your shopping around

I’ve had the ghd straightener for nearly seven years love it


Bought these at a very reasonable price and they are great.they arrived within the week of ordering them which was also great.

The FemJolie flat straightening brush is convenient because of its lightweight, less than one pound. It’s extremely flexible because it allows you to select temperatures as low as 176° (too low for most users, but not bad for a brief touch-up) and as high as 450° (the right setting for those with very thick hair) in increments of 9°. The brush auto-locks at your selected temperature so you can’t burn your hair by mistake and so it automatically heats to the right temperature every time you use it; you can easily override the auto-lock if you choose.
I just received my ghd classic sytler yesterday and registered it on ghd's website. It wasn't a fake and did my hair for the first time this morning with it and couldn't be happier with the results my hair feels so healthy I had tried a chi first returned it. Bought a croc which was better but still wouldn't tame my thick coarse hair without being on the 450 degree setting which made me nervous. I bought the ghd on the recommendation of a couple of friends who I trust. Read reviews on amazon and made sure to purchase the iron direct from amazon. Glad I did this flat iron is awesome my hope is that it lasts longer than a year
best straightener ever I've been straightening my hair for years nothing compares to the ghd highly recommended for anyone whether you want to curl or straighten your hair.
I love these my first real ghd styler it really is better than all the rest
After living in australia and going to a salon there that used a ghd flat iron on my hair I've always wanted one. But because of the price I often settled for the less expensive brands. I had a sedu but it recently died and I found that the ghd sold on amazon had such a great price I just had to get it. It was definitely worth it I love how I only need to flat iron a section once and it's perfect. Because I have curly hair it usually takes me 40 mins to flat iron my hair but now with the ghd styler it only takes about 25 mins. From now on I'm only using ghd stylers.
works like a dream. Better than any other iron I have used before. Heats up fast and love the auto turn off

still have my ghd to this day and love it my daughter has one also. Literally only takes seconds to heat up and beeps when ready. It gets hot and I mean hot so I use a heat styling product with it. I can't tell you how many times I decided at the last minute I needed to straighten and I only had 10 15 minutes or even 5 for a real quick top layer straightening as apposed to 40 60 minutes. I was able to plug it in turn it on and within seconds it was hot and ready to go I know it's pricey but it has great bones and I love the ceramic plates on it. It really is an outstanding and superior product compared to the stuff sold at your corner pharmacy or other large nearby retailer.

Excellent
got my ghd classic 1 inch styler straightener today and was able to register it on the ghd site with no problem. I was a little hesitant to purchase through amazon b c of a few scary reviews that people had received fakes. If this one is a fake at least I was able to register it with non problem and will get a guaranteed from ghd as a replacement. I dont for see having any problems... I purchased this ghd straightener as a replacement to the one I purchased off amazon well over 4 1 2 years ago it just died last week . I loved my last ghd straightener good luck
“Works great. Various and high-temp settings. Heats up very fast! My daughter and I both use this. I’m also a hairdresser, and this works great on my clients of all hair types. It’s easy to curl with it as well. I love curling with a flat iron. Great size and ceramic is my favorite, as it glides nice and smooth and heats evenly. It has a swivel cord, so it doesn’t tangle. Auto shut-off in case you leave it on. So far, so good.”

2nd ghd first one last almost 10 years love this product. Mine was real was able to register it without any issues.

Once you have purchased your new hair straightener and mastered the multitude of ways you can put it to good use, the only thing left to do is take care of it, so it lasts for years to come! Just like any luxury beauty tool, you will want to care for your hair straightener to extend its longevity and prevent corrosion (which can actually leak into your flowing locks…yuck!). Our top tips for caring for and cleaning your new hair straightener include:
this curling iron is awesome. It gets hot in seconds and holds the heat from start to finish. It is definitely worth the money I spent on it.
I ordered these straighteners as I'd had a pair before that lasted me 7 years it takes only 10 minutes to straighten my long hair and I would highly recommend these to anyone. These straighteners were also fantastic value for ghds which are usually over 100. They were extremely well packaged and arrived in perfect condition I am over the moon
after reading review with titles like fake I was a bit nervous but took a gamble anyway. Its authentic. I also found out that ghd has outsourced the production of some of there irons to china. In fact when I went to register my iron I clicked the help link for the date code and the example label had made in china clear as day on it.on the iron amazing night and day with the old one my favorite feature is the no tangle swivel cord

Derek Yuen, the man responsible for Cole Sprouse's grown-up new look, recommends the GHD Platinum Professional Performance iron. The flat iron is consistently and evenly heated at 365 degrees, which is safer and less damaging on the strands. “The beveled edges also allow for infinite styling possibilities, not just just for straightening hair,” says Yeun.
you me the nicest greeting and thank you for your dealings upscalei will deal with you thanksi will deal with you
Wife loves this thing. The auto off feature really makes me a happy camper too.
I initially thought this was a copy but it seems to be 100 original. Strangely it does not come with the box or the dvd but otherwise matches the descriptions from others. A quick run through you tube and you can see all of the different styling options easily enough anyway. Have had this for quite a few months now and it still works good as new.
This feature is particularly beneficial for users with naturally wavy or curly hair, which can have a tendency to easily snag in hair styling tools. This floating design, combined with the heat sensor, also ensures that your gorgeous curls won’t become permanently damaged just because you decide to straighten things out a bit for an evening or two. After all, those curls are coveted by beauty pros the world over, and you never want to damage them just because of a styling trend!

Perfection
Love the styler.

You can select the required heat level from 170°F to 450°F which means this hair straightener suits for all hair types. For me, this is the best straightening iron for thick curly hair.  It heats up in about 30 seconds, and the current temperature is shown on the LCD. This KIPOZI ion straightener comes in rose pink, and its slick design is just great.
Great quality. I've had this for years now. I'm a black female with 3b hair. This styler is amazing. Sedu and ghd have never let me down.
despite some of the reviews I bought the product and fell in love I love how shiny and soft my hair feels once I've straightened. This along with a straightening comb leaves my hair pin straight and flawless. I love it
If you are looking for volume for your fine hair then I would recommend the Vidal Sassoon VSHA6471UK which is a superb hot air styler.  Designed especially to give lift and volume from the root it will give you enviable curls and waves.  It is supplied with two brush sizes 19mm and 25mm so it’s ideal for shorter styles too (use the smaller brush) and gives a pleasing smooth finish that is tangle free.  You cannot fault the price either, on Amazon.co.uk this retails below the price of a salon blow-out.
It stops working about a year and a half into use.turns on and off intermittently which really sucks. Went with a chi instead which doesn't work as well but lasts forever.
The best hair straighteners should offer you adjustable temperature settings so you can customize it depending on your hair type. This is incredibly important if you have thin/fine, delicate, or damaged hair because it allows you to ensure that the iron doesn’t get too hot for your hair. Basically, having the ability to set the temperature/heat setting gives you more control. But if you prefer to have a set temperature, then you should take note just how much heat your hair can take and how hot your hair straightener can get.
as expected
Straighteners work because they have flat plates that get hot and touch together on either side of your hair. By doing that, they put heat through your hair follicles, trap in moisture and take out frizz. The plates on a flat iron can be made of several different materials, and they’re good for different uses. The best iron for you varies depending on the type of hair you have, the type of styling you want to do, and the amount of heat your hair needs.

Bought these on the recommendation of nearly every female I know and I haven't been disappointed they arrived promptly well wrapped and I checked them on the official ghd site straight away. I have had sleek straight hair ever since...... They heat up quickly and the flashing light is a great guide to help remind to switch them off. A great price too considering most pairs I've seen are well over 100 quid.
