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 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

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 accordinglyso you get unbeatable results quicker and personalized to you!
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.
I was told by my stylist to get this flat iron because my chi was totally worn out. I was a little skeptical after reading reviews that some were fakes but I ordered the sold by amazon one and I was able to register it at ghd's website. I am definitely so happy that I chose to get this styler. It is awesome. It's the one and done styler. I don't have to keep going over and over my hair to get it straight so I know it's better for my hair overall. Plus you can't beat the fact that it turns itself off after 30 minutes. It takes away my did I remember to turn it off fear every time I left the house after straightening my hair. I also have really curly hair and this makes my hair soft smooth and shiny. Definitely recommend
I ordered the ghd iv styler and was abit confused as to which one to order. I am happy with what I chose. It's small light and does the job wonderfully.
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
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.
love it heats up quick and does a great job.
after reading all the stuff about fake ghd flat irons I panicked and registered mine online. It went through fine. Mine says manufactured in china but I guess it is the real deal I have loved how my hair looks
This lightweight styler heats up quickly and has 20 temperature settings for all hair types which reach a top temperature of 230 degrees; making it ideal for people who have thicker or curlier hair. The inclusion of a long swivel cord makes it easy to move the styler around your head so you can fully straighten the hair at the back. Because of the shape of the plates, you can use them to smooth the hair down for perfectly sleek hair, or use their curved edges for gorgeous curls.
Heats up in seconds awesome flat iron better than the chi and has lasted for several years now. You will not be disappointed
I bought these due to my old one's breaking well well well amazing I was using the ghds that heat to 210 degrees and thought when I seen these only heat to 180 degrees I wasn't at all sure. Decided to go for it due to the reviews ive read and yes ghd were right 180 degrees is perfect u don't need anymore heat they do the same job as the old ones ie curling straightening in the same time and the price just cannot be moaned at. Next day delivery service was a lifesaver.
Can't believe how quick it heats up plug it in and 10 seconds it is beeping. Works great on my hair and leaves a beautiful shine. I have purchased other flat irons for a lot more money and am really impressed with this one. I was nervous after reading some of the reviews that this maybe a fake. That wasn't the case. As soon as I received it I went on line and was able to register it with ghd with no problems. I would recommend this one.
From the time of the Roman Empire until the Middle Ages, most women grew their hair as long as it would naturally grow. It was normally little styled by cutting, as women's hair was tied up on the head and covered on most occasions when outside the home with a snood, kerchief or veil; for an adult woman to wear uncovered and loose hair in the street was often restricted to prostitutes. Braiding and tying the hair was common. In the 16th century, women began to wear their hair in extremely ornate styles, often decorated with pearls, precious stones, ribbons and veils. Women used a technique called "lacing" or "taping," in which cords or ribbons were used to bind the hair around their heads. During this period, most of the hair was braided and hidden under wimples, veils or couvrechefs. In the later half of the 15th century and on into the 16th century a very high hairline on the forehead was considered attractive, and wealthy women frequently plucked out hair at their temples and the napes of their necks, or used depilatory cream to remove it, if it would otherwise be visible at the edges of their hair coverings. Working-class women in this period wore their hair in simple styles.
ghd launched its first advertising campaign in 2003, as the sponsor of the British reality television show The Salon. The company has also featured prominently on Australia’s Next Top Model. In November 2009, ghd ran a popular series of advertisements titled ‘Twisted Fairytales', including depictions of characters such as Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood, and Cinderella with the tagline "You can do anything with your hair". Singer Katy Perry was named the face of ghd in December 2011.
Perfect durable gets super hot in seconds I throw it in my bag and beat it up daily and it works great. No pulling great quality
works just like my old one. Was able to register it so it's not a fake.
I'm not usually extremely enthusiastic about appliances... Or whatever you would call this. But I love this straightener. My grandma originally bought it for me. I took it to australia and it fried and burnt out I should've known better . So I bought another one. Great for straightening my hair doesn't feel too dry and also great for curling if you just twist it around as you go down your hair.
For my list of the best flat irons, I’ve chosen the models with the surface made of ceramic, tourmaline or both these materials. They are considered to be the healthiest solution for styling. What’s more, ceramic hair straighteners heat up quickly and evenly, meaning that they can straighten your locks on lower temperatures. This definitely reduces the damage.
I just retired my 6 year old chi and initially got a chi replacement but it just did not feel like my old chi. I knew then that I had to look for that perfect flat iron that I've been used to. Well I found it with this ghd classic styler. It heats up fast and takes just one quick swipe to straighten my curly hair. It is an amazing iron without any unnecessary frills. Flat iron does damage the hair so keeping it to a minimum is the best thing to do and don't think that paying extra for temp. Adjustment and other frills will somehow be less damaging. Stick to this basic one and you will be so happy also I did buy this iron from amazon itself and was able to register it without any problems.
Brant Mayfield, who styles everyone from Diane von Furstenberg to Nicole Scherzinger, favors this glossy white flat iron. "It has digital single pass technology, which helps for smoothness and contains an eternal microchip that maintains an even temperature," he says. The angled edges and ceramic plates will keep your hair smooth and without kinks.
If your daughter is keen to straighten her hair, then I would suggest taking things slow and erring on the side of caution to avoid any potential damage to her hair. How you care for her hair is probably just as important as whether you go for a hairbrush straightener or a flat iron. I have listed some hair care tips below which will hopefully help you and your daughter.
Ghd quality is well known in the beauty industry and is reflected in this styler. It works better than any other my wife has used. Sure the less expensive ones work just not as quickly and typically others do not work anywhere in the world this one does. I ordered it gift wrapped and so pleased I did not only was the box and wrapping suburb but disguised the contents resulting in a big surprise on christmas day. It was recommended to us from a close friend and I recommend it to you too.
You won’t go wrong with the Nicky Clarke Frizz Control 1200watt Blow Dry Styler NHA045 which is designed especially to minimise frizz. Even if you’re in damp or humid conditions you’ll be amazed at how well your curl lasts. It has been made using ionic technology so neutralising positive ions found in the atmosphere (these create frizz and dull hair) and in turn produces a smooth, glossy curl.
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.
I love this styler. Use it daily it heats up literally in seconds straightens my super thick frizzy hair very fast and as of yet has not caused noticeable damage. I absolutely think it's worth the money. Also I was able to register my product it was a genuine ghd.
I have been using this for over 2 years. Lightweight and very effective. The only con you cannot regulate temperature. And this was authentic checked on the ghd website.
The DAFNI is the top-quality hair straightening brush that set social media on fire when videos featuring the tool started appearing a few years ago. You can only use it at 365° (when all four LEDs light up, you know it’s ready) so it doesn’t get hot enough to work effectively on extremely thick or knotty hair, and it may be a bit too hot for severely damaged or thin hair. But 365° is perfect for medium-to-thin hair, making the DAFNI easy and rewarding to use for most women.
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.
The 9-foot power cord means you never have to worry how far away the outlet is from where you’ll be styling your hair. It is more expensive than some of our other picks but it’s not as expensive as the BabylissPRO. However, it doesn’t have an automatic shut off feature and the temperature range only reaches 410 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, there have been reports from users that their HAI Classic only lasted a year or two.
The historical dictum to brush hair with one hundred strokes every day is somewhat archaic, dating from a time when hair was washed less frequently; the brushstrokes would spread the scalp's natural oils down through the hair, creating a protective effect. Now, however, this does not apply when the natural oils have been washed off by frequent shampoos. Also, hairbrushes are now usually made with rigid plastic bristles instead of the natural boar's bristles that were once standard; the plastic bristles increase the likelihood of actually injuring the scalp and hair with excessively vigorous brushing. However, traditional brushes with boar's bristles are still commonly used among African Americans and those with coarse or kinky textures to soften and lay down curls and waves.
this is my third ghd flat iron. Great quality. Won’t fry your hair. Everything else takes a back seat to ghd.
I can't believe Amazon would allow one of their trusted sellers to sell fakes. I received mine today and it took about 5 seconds to realize that it was fake. I could not register it on the ghd website, and I came across the information below to help identify fakes. This straightener did not have a reset button on the plug, and had many more of the 'give-aways' that it was a fake! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER.
Literally the best flat iron I have used to date. The heat is always consistent no matter if my hair is wet or dry. I love how it heats up and beeps as soon as its ready in 30 seconds or so. I only have to spend one pass in each section.
In March 2013, ghd launched the "Eclipse" hair straightener, which uses six sensors in the plates to maintain a constant heat of 185 degrees celsius, a temperature ghd claims is the optimum temperature for styling results. The consistent temperature reduces the time to style hair, particularly coarse hair that may previously taken multiple run throughs. The Daily Mail called the Eclipse "The Rolls-Royce of irons".
after a lot of advice from friends I decided to buy a ghd style as opposed to other cheaper brands it was definitely the right decision it heats up super fast and works really well. The amazon price is fantastic and I successfully registered it on the ghd website so it must be the real thing not a fake . The only thing is you might want to buy a separate heatproof bag for this as it didn't come with one and ensure you aren't buying it from a third party but from amazon directly.
these are genuine have just registered them with ghd don't believe the reviews that say they aren't. If the seller is amazon then they are genuine
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.
In 2001, ghd revolutionised the way women styled their hair with the launch of its first styler – a professional tool designed for salon use that could also be easily used at home. ghd has continued to be a leader and innovator in hair styling with its range of professional brushes, ghd Style styling products and the launch of its first hairdryer, ghd air™.
excellent price for ghd's. Works really well on my hair leaving it soft and gorgeous. My last pair lasted 7yrs hopefully these will last me a similar amount of time.
The Apalus works relatively quickly, taking approximately ten seconds per pass to straighten most types of hair, although you will have to straighten small sections at a time. That makes it an inexpensive lifesaver if you need a quick straightening before heading off to work. The Apalus hair straightener can also be used as a detangling brush and massager to straighten frizzy or unmanageable hair, if used in conjunction with Agam essential oil or Moroccan oil.
Users with super-thick hair have given Remington's 1" Pearl Straightener the stamp of approval on Target's website, praising it for quickly and easily smoothing strands. According to reviewers, the $24.99 tool stands up to counterparts that are more than six times the price, so you'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal out there. It has multiple heat settings, allowing you to adjust the quick-heat plates to just the right temperature to create pin-straight hair or soft curls.
Since the 1970s, women have worn their hair in a wide variety of fairly natural styles. In the 1980s, women pulled back their hair with scrunchies, stretchy ponytail holders made from cloth over fabric bands. Women also often wear glittery ornaments today, as well as claw-style barrettes used to secure ponytails and other upswept or partially upswept hairstyles. Today, women and men can choose from a broad range of hairstyles, but they are still expected to wear their hair in ways that conform to gender norms: in much of the world, men with long hair and women whose hair doesn't appear carefully groomed may face various forms of discrimination, including harassment, social shaming or workplace discrimination. This is somewhat less true of African-American men, who wear their hair in a variety of styles that overlap with those of African-American women, including box braids and cornrows fastened with rubber bands and dreadlocks.
Had no problems registering. This is my second ghd styler. My first one is almost 10 years old and still works great. Had to buy a second when my daughter took my first one to college with her. These used to be super pricey back in the day but are very affordable now. Hope they are as durable and well made. Looks almost identical to my old one.
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
So let me clear up some of the mixed reviews. When you click on the link to this straightener the ghd classic styler the item is sold by different sellers. So someone who buys today may not buy from the same place that had the straightener yesterday. Which explains why some have received fakes. Click on the seller read the reviews about them do your research.however with that being said I purchased mine from salon logistix my ghd was authentic and I was able register it with the ghd site. I straightened my hair 30 minutes ago with it and am so happy with my purchase. I have natural caucasian hair but my waves are deep and usually take a couple passes to go away. This straightener ironed them out in about 2 passes. It heats up in seconds makes little beeps when turned on and hot and never snagged my hair huge problem with my chi . I would definitely recommend this straightener I previously paid 250 for a t3 mane tamer this ghd does just as well and for less than half the price
Great styler but I was not able to register it with ghd. Pretty disappointed. They said that does not mean it's not authentic just that I did not buy it from an approved dealer.
Wonderful product I just love it take it from me you must spend the extra money and buy the more expensive professional version of this product. It makes a huge difference great seller product came one day sooner than expected.
You can use this Revlon ionic flat iron for both straightening and curling, due to its 1-inch wide plates and ergonomic design. The plates are made of ceramic and tourmaline which are good for the health of your hair, reducing the damage and making your hair shiny and soft. There are 10 temperature settings, and the straightener can heat up to 455°F. Also, it takes only 15-20 seconds to heat up which is pretty fast.
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.
This edition of ghd has luxury christmas present written all over it plus points impressive packaging that is eye catching made of heavy cardboard and signalling a luxury product.quilted case with mirrored blue button and separator for the straighteners and it’s flex to be kept separately.quality heat may that is detachable from the case.beautifully designed straighteners in the same electric blue as the packaging with a silicone heat shield at the end.safety features cut off after 30 mins and a noise alerts you to them being plugged in being switched on or being switched off.the switch is inside the straightener so that you don’t accidentally turn it off as you are straightening your hair.plates glide through hair creating straightness without effort and as they are at the optimum 185 degrees without that crimped look at the top where you first inserted the plates.improvements that would’ve made it a 5 I needed a slightly longer flex maybe another 1 2 metre.i miss the option to choose the temperature that I had on my old straighteners. I appreciate their advice about 185 degrees being the setting that works best but I have very fine hair which is also frizzy and like to have a choice so that I can accommodate what my hair is up to that day.
Best flat iron ever.....gets very hot
perfection is the word to describe the ghd classic styler...it's easy to use and the hair style last longer than by using other regular stylers sold on the market...once you try it you will see the difference right away.
Features like this prove that hair straighteners really have come a long way over the last decade, and the LumaBella Keratin Duel Touch Hair Straightener certainly doesn’t disappoint in this regard! When the terror of hair damage is removed from everyday straightening, there’s no limit to the styles you can create with a hair straightener like this making this an ideal choice for novice and expert stylists alike!
Other factors may also be important to you, including the weight of the unit, how comfortable the handle feels in your hand, whether there is an LCD display and an automatic shut-off feature, and the length of the power cord. But remember: heat levels come first, because they determine whether your hair comes out straight, shiny and silky – or a damaged, fried mess. Everything else is secondary.
my girlfriend has wanted some of these for ages so I got her some for christmas. Guys...if you need to buy one present for your lady then get these I couldn't have chosen better she wanted me to give this rating 5.5 stars
I love my ghd's and so does my mad unruly curly hair hoorah for ghd thank you from the bottom of my hair roots
Being a bald old feller its reasonably obvious that I ordered these for my wife who over the years has become something of an expert on hair styling equipment and has been the guinea pig for this product so her thoughts on this styler....her immediate reaction was ghd they are the best make ever secondly it is a lovely looking styler and is beautifully boxed with a heat resistant protective plate guard for the blade ends and a heat resistant travel bag.my wife was truly amazed at the short heat up time the advertising says 25 seconds she says that it is almost immediate in use there are no problems though she did say that perhaps the plates could be larger otherwise no issues.so to the real nitty gritty....my question was... Would you buy this styler her reply.. No its far too expensive and even though it heats up really quickly basically its no better than cheaper stylers
I love this flat iron I use it for curling and straightening my hair everyday it is 2 years old and works like a charm. It heats up so fast it does not leave any kinks and I am in love
This is my second ghd straightener in 5 years. I will not buy another brand. It doesn’t burn your hair but will straighten it in no time at all
I have used this styler before and absolutely love it I have wavy frizzy hair and it helps tremendously with the friz and it straightens so effortlessly. I had ordered this and they sent me one within 2 days I went to register it online and the code did not work even after mutiple times so I left the seller a feedback message that was not too nice which I do apologize for but they were absolutely fantastic. They sent me a new one in which the code did work so these are genuine ghd stylers. Amazing product and it makes it even more amazing with great customer service. I highly recommend this product and this seller. Thank you
To give yourself that big hair look, check out our other hair accessories and you’ll find plenty to help you get everything from subtle waves to tumbling ringlets and tight curls. Crimpers can give you a natural looking wave and variable temperature controls and ceramic plates make sure you don’t fry your locks. For more defined curls, you’ll want to grab a curling wand to add bounce and many new curlers come with keratin or Argan oil infused barrels that help to give your hair a glossy look.
The Dafni is a “paddle” or “flat brush” type of hair brush straightener, while the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium is a “barrel” or rotating hair brush straighteners. In general, the “paddle” design is best if you are just after a brush to straighten your hair and the “barrel” design is best if you want to add some volume & shine, curl and style your hair (or have “very” long hair).
These are fab ghd’s makes hair lovely silky great purchase
