Lots of comments leave photographs of their voluminous hairdos in their reviews, as proof of this flat iron’s hair-raising power. This ringing endorsement more or less sums up Voloom’s appeal: “I really think that the inventor of this miracle tool should be made a saint, or have a town square named after them. If you have to sell your first born to purchase this device, do it.”
We usually roll our eyes at oil-infused heat tools — but you can actually watch this oil being sucked right out of the refillable cartridge in the handle. When you press the iron closed over your strands, the oil vapor seeps through tiny holes to condition and straighten your hair. And don't worry fine-haired friends: It made our tester's hair silkier, but not like she'd dipped it in an oil vat.
I’m sure you are aware how big of a role your daily showers play in the looks and health of your hair. But did you know that smoothness, softness and general hair health actually depends on the water you shower with as much as proper use and maintenance of hair straighteners? And because of that best shower filters for hair can make all the difference and are something you hair and skin desperately needs.
Let me start by saying I have curly, damaged hair that is extremely dry so when I’m going to use heat on it, I have to make sure it is something that will not further damage my hair as much as drugstore brands would. This one is innovative in the sense that it uses technology to help seal cuticles and heat the hair from the inside out. It works to protect your hair while helping reduce frizz. It’s a great product. It also has no heat setting, as it automatically puts itself where it needs to be to perfect your hair. It also heats up in a matter of seconds. The ONLY negative is the structure of it makes it difficult to curl your hair with. Being that that isn’t a straightener’s purpose it’s amazing. However, being able to use a straightener to do both would be nice!

Which are the best GHD hair straighteners?


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.
Breakthrough ultra-zone with predictive technology intelligently predicts your hair’s needs and constantly adapts to ensure the optimum styling temperature of 365°F at all times. It monitors heat 250x a second and recognizes your hair type and the speed at which you are styling to control heat more effectively than ever before. Now thanks to Platinum+, get ultimate results with visibly healthier hair.
The last time I bought a GHD was in 2012 limited edition peacock straightener. I thought this time I would go for a top of the line model and got the platinum plus. It is not as nice to hold, feels flimsy and not as well made. Heats up quick but feels like it’s burning my hair more than my old model. It is also catching my hair in the little crevices and feels like it’s pulling even though I’m not holding it closed tightly. I’ve loved my GHD straighteners for so long but this model is a real let down.

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!

How long do GHD take to repair?


Has anyone else noticed that items are significantly cheaper when you change your "shopping from" country to certain countries like Malta, Lithuania and Luxembourg that have the GBP option? (you can also do this in the app under "App Settings"). You can still ship to UK addresses for free when doing this and the "APPY4U" code still works. I don't know if there are any reasons not to do this if the "shopping from" country is in the EU. Has anyone else tried?

In common with all GHDs there's an auto sleep mode that kicks in after 30 minutes, which you'll appreciate if you've ever rushed out the door to work and spent the whole day worrying you'll return to the burned out shell of your former home. The Platinum+ is also supplied with a soft rubber plate guard that slips over the end of the barrel for safer storage when hot.


However, if you only straighten your hair for special occasions, or have shorter or thinner hair, you’ll likely be equally as satisfied with a cheaper flat iron. Both the HSI Professional Glider and the Remington 1” Flat Iron with Anti-Static Technology and Digital Controls are great options depending on your budget. If you’re simply buying the GHD hair straightener because of the name, you may end up spending more money than you need to.

Can you use a GHD on wet hair?


For many years I owned a Chi iron, many different irons because they don't last more than maybe 2 years before they start acting up (turning off while using, not heating all the way, etc). I knew about this iron but didn't want to spend all that money on something that you can get for so much less in a different brand. However, now that I have bought this iron I have to say it is WORTH. EVERY. PENNY. My hair is pretty coarse and an awful blend of wavy/curly & straightish while also being stupid frizzy. Thus, I have to have the iron pretty hot to make my hair even consider straightening out. This iron doesn't work for me with one pass, but it still takes less time than my Chi did. And once I get my hair straightened I don't have to straighten it again until I wash it. With the Chi I had to use it every day and if I passed a mister my hair was wigging out again. That doesn't happen now. I will not own another kind of iron again. Seriously can't say enough how amazing this iron is.
We’ve all heard the saying that the grass is always greener on the other side, and our hair types tend to follow the same old adage. If you were born with a head full of beautiful curls, you probably spent your childhood longing for straight hair; if you were born with bone straight hair, then you’ve probably spent more hours than you’d care to admit with a throbbing curler-induced headache. No matter how hard we may try to love the hair we’re born with; the truth is that most of us wish there were something else perched on top of our heads from time to time.
FHI’s rounded edge allows you to easily curl or add waves without much effort. It’s almost as small as a travel flat iron, and I love that it straightens even the poofiest sections with just a single pass. But don’t just take my word for it, listen to Beyoncé (via InStyle): “I’m crazy about it! I can’t live without my flatiron! It takes me about an hour to do my hair, and the only time I don’t is when I’m on vacation.” (Picture younger Beyoncé, doing her own hair on vacation).

My eclipse died and I couldn't afford to replace them with the new platinum model, so went for the GHD V Styler, but they were horrendous and made no difference to my hair whatsoever. After reading reviews I thought I'd then try the IV Styler instead, now while a slight improvement on the V model, my hair was still left looking very big and frizzy. I've now reverted back to my really old emergency set of SHE's and can't believe how much better they are than GHD's, even the eclipse! If they ever need replacing, I know which brand I'll be opting for at half the price of GHD's!
I love these, they glide smoothly through my hair and leave it looking and feeling silky and healthy. My hair type is fine/normal and slightly wavy. My hair is bad at holding curls I can create some great beach’s waves with these that last all day. Only thins that annoying is the plastic casing of the plate has a seam in in which my fine hair finds a way to get trapped in, which never happened with my old GHDs that I have for 10 years. Also kinda wish the button was a switch like the used to be, the press and hold button to switch on and audio feedback just feels a little out of sync and devalues the experience for me. Still worth the $200 I paid for them though. 

We don't need to tell you that GHD's Platinum Styler flatiron is bae. It's already got two Best of Beauty awards to prove it. The wildly easy-to-use tool truly takes the guesswork out of straightening your hair. All it has is a single button which heats up the tool to 365 degrees and keeps it that way so your hair doesn't get too fried. But having an award-winning straighter wasn't enough for the folks at GHD. They just had to be extra — and thank goodness, because we're all poised to benefit from it with the brand's new release, the Platinum + Styler.
GHD Flight travel hair dryer – For a completely different take, check out this compact travel accessory. Designed to be stowed away safely in baggage and used anywhere in the world, the GHD Flight travel hair dryer comes with a clever folding handle to minimise its dimensions and is 50% lighter than a standard Air version. It's also around 30% less powerful, but that's excellent performance for a dryer of this size. Moreover, it's quite a bit cheaper than the Air, so it's also a good budget option for general purposes.
