We don’t know too many people that are using their hair straighteners vertically, but there must be a few since ISA has made a point of clarifying that this model is intended only to be used horizontally, i.e., perpendicular to your hair. According to the manufacturer, using the hair straightener horizontally reduces hair pulling for a more comfortable experience. This may be particularly important to you if your hair tends to knot easily or you have unruly curls and texture.
Yes I would recommend this to friends my husband bought it for me and I love it works great

I don't use the straightener very often but it has worked great for me. Gets very hot very quickly and does what it is suppose to do.
The RUSK Professional Straight Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy frizz-free, kink-free, smooth, silky, straight hair. Now, this baby makes use of ceramic and tourmaline infused plates along with Sol-Gel technology which protects your hair from damage and makes your hair smooth and shiny. It’s very lightweight that you barely feel it as you use it. It gets hot pretty quickly and is really great at making curls.

I don’t think the flat iron as a styling tool needs any introduction, and many of you have probably used one at some point. I know how hard it is to pick the perfect styling tool for your hair – at least, the one that’s good enough. So, to make it a bit easier for you, I’ve decided to draw up a list of top 10 flat irons. It’s based on both, my own experience and other people’s flat irons reviews. So, I’m trying to be objective and bias-free here.
I love it 👍

I had been eyeing this styler for a while and as much as I would've liked to save up to a 100 purchasing it here my peace of mind was worth the 60 80 dollar difference. This an expensive professional item that would not grant its 2 year guarantee if purchased from a non official distributor. I purchased from sephora and I'm incredibly happy with the product. It provides salon quality results so I see it as an investment instead of splurge. But if you're concerned both about the legitimacy as well as as the guarantee coverage of this product when purchasing from third party vendors like I was go ahead and spend the extra money. It might save you a lot of headaches and money in the end.
Perfection
This is a great styler according to my girlfriend. I purchased this styles on amazon because it was cheaper than through other outlets such as sephora. After reading some comments I was concerned that this may be a knock off brand of the ghd classic styles but was relieved that I could register the product on the ghd website as well as check via the checklist of genuine product traits that someone else nicely posted. I bought this through amazon and deva concepts dropship and recommend you do the same.
There are less expensive stylers but if you use one everyday you want one that works very well.this one works great. It's well built to begin with. The grip is easy to hold and it springs open when you aren't clamping it. There's a very long 9 foot cord and unlike any others I've seen it connects to the styler with a swivel. That makes it easy to maneuver especially for styling someone else's hair if you need to walk around them and go at it from all sides. The other thing that makes this extremely useful is how quickly it heats up and is ready to go. Turn it on and it beeps and then in under half a minute it beeps again twice signaling it is ready.you can straighten hair very quickly and it does an impressive job. Curling is easy too whether you go for tight curls or wavy hair.if you leave it sitting and forget to turn it off it shuts off automatically after half an hour. I almost think that it would be better to shut off after 15 minutes inactive. Given how quickly it heats up that wouldn't be a bother if you happened to step away too long inadvertently. Easy to use built to last and built safe this heats up quickly and does a good job.
best flat iron ever this is my 2nd ghd for my daughter away to college. Don't trust the cheapies and burn your hair like I did
I have fine hair but a lot of it. I haven't straightened my hair in years so I finally decided it was time to buck up the necessary cash for a decent one.so far so great

I was stung once buying some fake ghds online but these are the real deal. They are perfect. I ve been using them for years and my last pair gave up after five years of daily use.
My hair stylist recommended this brand. It heats up quickly and has all the safety features. Love it
Introducing ghd curve®, the new range of curling irons & wands from ghd. Featuring tri-zone® technology for gorgeous, shiny, bouncy curls that last as long as you do. The protective cool tip provides you with a safe place to hold the hair in place while you curl, and the built-in safety stand allows you to place the wand down securely during styling.
I've always wanted ghd's but never really had the budget for it so decided this birthday 24 after moving to the states and throwing my 30 pair in the bin I would treat myself. Best decision ever great irons and using them so much more than my old ones as they are so quick and easy. My hair is very thick so it used to take ages to style with my old irons. So much easier now
There are 12 heat settings on this brush with a selectable temperature range from 250-450°, so it can be used on all types of hair even though it’s best on thick locks. However, this model does not generate negative ions, which are the best weapon against frizz and create smoother, shinier hair. (The AsaVea 4 does use ionic technology and sells for a similar price, but the review team prefers the 3.0 because it uses MCH for more consistent heat delivery, doesn’t have brush tips that can catch on hair, and has more heat settings.)

was able to register the product with no problem great deal on an authentic ghd flat iron as this costs 180 at the salon

Tourmaline is an organic, prismatic crystal found in granitic rocks that is crushed into a fine powder and layered onto the surface of the plate. Tourmaline is great because heat is more consistent and evenly distributed through the plate. Also, it produces more negative ions than ceramic with less heat. This means that you not only get more control, but you also get better results and expose your hair to less damage. It’s the newest entry in the heat styling industry so hair straighteners with tourmaline tend to be pricier. Some hair straighteners like the HSI Professional Glider infuse both ceramic and tourmaline to boost the number of negative ions produced.
During the 1920s and 1930s, Japanese women began wearing their hair in a style called mimi-kakushi (literally, "ear hiding"), in which hair was pulled back to cover the ears and tied into a bun at the nape of the neck. Waved or curled hair became increasingly popular for Japanese women throughout this period, and permanent waves, though controversial, were extremely popular. Bobbed hair also became more popular for Japanese women, mainly among actresses and moga, or "cut-hair girls," young Japanese women who followed Westernized fashions and lifestyles in the 1920s.[27]
This ghd is the real deal. It works great on my hair. I also registered my ghd online when I received it to ensure it's the genuine deal and it is. I love it the only thing this product did not come with a carry pouch for the hair iron and there is no temperature control. Other than that it is great

love it heats up quick and does a great job.
While it isn’t the fastest heating hair straightener we have reviewed, the CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron warms up to temperature in just one minute! If one minute seems like too long for you to wait, try adding a bit of multitasking into your morning routine by taking advantage of this found time. If you are at a loss for what you can do in just one minute, check out this list for a little inspiration:
I must say…ghd produces the best hair straightener. Have tried various brands of hair straighteners in the past and this brand is definitely worth the investment. As they say..once you go ghd..you never go back

In 2004, ghd entered the North American market, bringing its total worldwide sales generating £37 million in revenue.[12] The Jemella Group, which owned the ghd brand, was bought by Lloyds Development Capital for £55 million in 2006.[7] It was sold eleven months later to Montagu Private Equity for £160 million.[13] Lion Capital, a British private equity firm, purchased ghd in February 2013 for approximately £300 million.[14]


Thick, coarse hair can withstand high heat AND it responds better to it. Using high heat also means that you minimize the number of passes you’ll make which will benefit your hair’s health. You’ll want a hair straightener that has adjustable heat settings with a maximum temperature reaching the 400-degree range like the HAI Beauty Concepts 1.25″ Classic Convertable Flat Iron.
According to hair pro Christian Wood, if you want to make sure your hair stays in the place, use the GHD gold mini styler. “I prefer a small straightener that I can get really close to the roots to remove stubborn kinks and cow licks,” says Wood. The small straightener trick is probably how he nails the beauty looks of Tessa Thompson, Emily Ratajkowski, Rosie Huntington, and Olivia Munn.
If you are interested in adding the benefits of keratin use into other aspects of your hair care routine, treat yourself to a keratin-rich hair mask once per week! There are dozens of fantastic keratin masks on the market to choose from (and even in your local drugstore!), but we love Naat’s Brazilian Keratin Intensive Hair Mask (which you can buy here from Amazon) for a consistent shine every time!

First, there are the temperature settings. Obviously, different hair requires a different heat level. The thicker your hair is, the higher level of heat you should apply to straighten it. I highly recommend you to read the instructions which usually say what temperature you should select for your particular hair type. This may vary a little bit from one flat iron to another. The general rule here is the less heat you apply, the better your hair condition will be. And always use a heat protectant, regardless of your hair type.
These would be an ideal christmas gift as they are presented in a smart black and gold box with a lovely black padded storage bag and heat resistant mat heatproof guard paddle brush and hair clips.once the straighteners are plugged in they will beep when turned on and then beep again after a couple of seconds when they are ready to use and it is a couple of seconds they heat up so quickly I have never used ghd’s before so all I can say is ‘you get what you pay for ‘. They heat up so quickly and they glide through your hair. There was no pulling and you don’t have to use any resistance or even go over the same piece of hair time and time again.the only negative I can think of is the price they are very expensive and there are a lot of cheaper alternatives.however I think they are definitely worth paying for.
This hair straightener has diamond-infused titanium plates; making it a perfect choice for anyone who loves luxurious beauty. The plates provide a high shine finish so hair appears radiant and healthy. The advanced ceramic heaters heat up in just 15 seconds and have 3 different temperature settings so you can customise the heat to your hair type. The plates also have a curved edge to them; making them perfect to create loose curls and waves.
This one’s the LBD of all hair straighteners. With 100 percent pure tourmaline ceramic plates, the classic tool will never lose its luster (and neither will your hair). No need to tug or pull, as this tool is made with a small suspension system — the floating plates adjust to compress your hair while styling. And with a fully-rotating swivel power cord, you’ll have all the styling control in your hands.
Absolutely amazing I had a chi before this styling iron and was nervous about switching brands but I love this straightener. Heats up fast works well and leaves my hair feeling so smooth. Definitely recommend
Best straightner I've ever used. Heats up quick. Perfect for straightning curls or beach waves. Very impressed.
The Babybliss is a rotating hair brush straightener, similar to Revlon Perfect Heat, however, it is made from titanium instead of ceramic and is more expensive. This model has three heat settings, but it does not have a cold shot button. Some believe the titanium makes a difference in the way their hair feels but the team doesn’t see it; we think the performance is virtually identical to the Revlon Perfect Heat.
I bought these to replace my daughter's which I had been using and which she wanted back. I was nervous about ordering as some of the feedback suggested that at this price they weren't genuine ghds and this is of course what I wanted as I've tried others and always come back to the ghds. I decided to take a chance and received a genuine set of ghds which are every bit as good as the one's I had to give up.
With a maximum temperature of 450° F, the BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron can really pack a punch despite its otherwise small frame. One thing to note though: these heat settings are not pre-set like the CHI G2 hair straightener we also reviewed, and you will need to play around with them to find the right temperature for your hair. This shouldn’t be a problem if you have a Saturday afternoon or two to kill, but may not be ideal for users that are looking for a flat iron with pre-recorded settings.
Excellent

"Unite Pro Tools Flat Iron is an easy-to-use, low maintenance iron," says Chris Dylan. Dylan works with Kylie Jenner so finding an easy-to-use tool is a must when you’re helping someone go from a platinum blonde bob to jet black floor length extensions. in a span of a week. He notes that with a fast-heating iron and beveled edges, it creates soft waves and has a great temperature gauge that keeps you firmly in control of the heat.
Bought this as a gift for my girlfriend. She loves it. Got it for cheaper than they sell the same one at those make up stores in the mall.
heats up in an instant and stays hot until I'm done. It works like a dream and it was recommended by my hairdresser. I'm so glad I bought this because it makes my styling time next to nothing now instead of constantly going over the same area repeatedly like with a cheap iron. It also stays clean.
my wife loves this product and so do I just because she can be ready to roll out f the house a lot faster due to the flat iron working so well.
This is a great flat iron. It self adjusts the temperature to fit the needs of your hair.

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.
Customers rave about it being great for fine hair, short hair and also very straight hair – it manages to generate good looking curls no matter what hair texture. However, it is not recommended for very long hair as the brush isn’t large enough to cope with a long, large amount.  Nevertheless, it’s a good all round styler that won’t break the bank  and features two attachments, 19mm and 23mm as well as a vent brush– an all-round superb budget styler.
“The temperature of the iron can determine the curl pattern on hair that tends to fall easily, as you might need a higher heat to lock in the pattern closer to the root,” she added. “The internal components of the irons also can determine the curl pattern, and that is why it is important to invest in custom, high-end tools that contain internal heaters that go the entire length of the barrel. The higher the heat, the stronger the curl will essentially be. Low heat will produce a softer finish.”
I have extremely kinky curly hair. This flat iron is amazing best buy thus far. It is a little expensive but if you want your hair pin straight or even have nice curls buy this heats up in 2 seconds and takes me no time to straighten my hair. Hopefully it's durable and lasts.
The ultimate clay products at Hanz de Fuko are Quicksand and Claymation (over 3 million sold!). Quicksand is both a styling clay and dry shampoo with high hold and a dry matte finish. For the ambitious learners, Quicksand contains diatomaceous earth, a sedimentary rock that’s highly absorbent and helps plump strands. Claymation on the other hand, is a styling “clay-wax” hybrid with super high hold and a matte finish. We added a touch of Quicksand to this formula for an added boost of holding power and flexible hold.
Most straighteners will have either ceramic or tourmaline plates, although a few use titanium. Ceramic is the best choice for delicate, fine or color-treated hair because it heats evenly and a bit more slowly than tourmaline or titanium with no hot spots. Tourmaline and titanium, by contrast, heat up extremely quickly and can easily damage thin or sensitive hair before you’re even aware that it’s happened. For thick hair, though, tourmaline or titanium are the way to go; tourmaline has the added benefit of producing 20x more negative ions, making hair moist and silky and reducing frizz.
This is the best one . Trust me my tried them all .
If you have ever visited a luxury spa or wellness company, you have probably run across far infrared heat a time or two. Without going into too much science, infrared heat is the same heat you feel when the sun kisses your cheeks and warms your body from the inside-out. Far infrared heat, in particular, has been used by medical and wellness professionals for years to treat a variety of conditions from muscle pain to even cancer.
After I wore out the brushes on the first two, I was looking for another brand that might have a better, longer lasting brush. I found the Hot Revolver by Martino Cartier. This was a very poor product and extremely overpriced. The brush would not glide through my hair and it was worthless for smoothing. The brush started to "click" and would no longer spin while in my hair. Terrible product.

ghd is huge in australia the creme dela creme of hair straighteners. It is not as big yet in america which I found strange but I think its because of all the other brands that were so good that are now not so good.i have moved to america for a year and my australian ghd does not work here wattage difference or something it doesnt heat up . So I just wanted a cheaper but still good straightener for the year or even one that I could take home and still use I've read america to aus is fine but not the other way . I have had my australian ghd for almost 5 years now and it works as good as the day I bought it. 5 Years I looked at chi hsi babyliss all the straighteners on amazon and other websites. I was scared of all the horrible reviews each of these brands got that they stopped working after a certain time that they were fake the ceramic plates started to chip etc. There were plenty of good reviews too but the bad reviews scared me. I am usually an unlucky one with products turning crappy. I know I'm only here for a year but I dont want a crappy straightener. I want one that makes my hair look and feel fabulous and that I can use to straighten and create awesome curls. Thats why I decided to buy another ghd. They honestly are amazing and I think they will just be so huge in a year or two unless the other brands pick up their act they are worth the price cheaper than in aus and they last forever. Ghd have a authentication tool on their website to make sure you got a real legit straightener. They have lots of videos and how to's as well which is great for those who have no idea what they are doing which is what I started off as.my australian hairdresser first recommended ghd to me and now my american hairdresser also recommended it to me as it is what she uses in the salon and at home she also happens to be a friend so I trust her . The brand truly is the best and will make your hair feel fabulous.i have long almost to my elbows thin fine coloured and highlighted damaged hair. The ghd doesnt damage my hair any further than I already do at all. I use their products to style and eufora shampoo and conditioner. I believe that the products you use including shampoo and conditioner really impact a the way you hair looks and feels after being styled and b the way the straightener works and reacts to your hair.cons expensiveno heat controlpros it makes my hair look silky and stylishno frizz whatsoevermy hair looks so healthy after I straighten with the ghd rather than all broken with flyaways like cheaper straightenersit lasts forever its so easy and quick to usedoesnt kink or burn my hairthe plates are rounded making it super easy to curl even for a novice like mei can straighten my hair perfectly in less than 15 minutes.it automatically switches off within thirty minutes if it remains unattendedi can curl my hair in about 20 25 minutes I'm not very good at it temperature is automatically controlled so the heat distributes evenly on the surface of my hair.its lightweightheats up super fastit doesnt make my hair feel greasy and oily and I can leave it for a couple of days without retouching.i honestly believe that once you get a ghd you will never happily go back to another brand. They are amazing and worth every penny. You wont regret it.please note I purchased my ghd from folica.com amazon is cheaper but I was weary of the possibility of a fake one. There are so many different ones on amazon it confused me so I just jumped on over to folica.com and got 20 off it was more expensive than amazon but definitely cheaper than home or shops here. I have just purchased crappy fake products online not amazon before and was more confident in folica.com this time round.


Excellent buying
best flat iron I've ever owned. My hairdresser recommended ghd and I couldn't be happier. I have owned chi in the past but bit the bullet on this one when my second chi quit working and I'm happy I did.
Great flat iron does the job well.

Absolutely 100 satisfied with my purchase. I love my new flat iron. I had no issues whatsoever registering my flat iron on the ghd website and received a response immediately that my purchase had been validated so I know I this item is authentic.
Excellent

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


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.

love it...Worth It...This product would be great for thin or short hair and fantastic for swirls....I loved this styler two in one straightens and curles perfect cureles and beach waves takes me 5 min to straighten n style my hair I have pretty stabborn hair and most of all I like that it has only one button on/off so I don't have to think what temperature to choose )
