Bought these as a present for a friend to replace an old pair of ghd's she is extremely pleased with them they straighten her wavy hair easily and quickly...i'm thinking of purchasing a pair for when my ghd's finally give up on me.
The shorter your hair is, the narrower plates you need to straighten it properly. I have to admit, most flat irons don’t work well on really short hair. The most common width of plates is something about 1 inch, at least in my rating. If you have really long locks you can try a straightener with 2-inches long plates – for instance, the Xtava flat iron.
In summary, you will want to buy a hair brush straightener that has a lower temp range, from about 250-300° (any temps higher than that and you are likely to damage your hair – start at the lowest temp possible and work up if needed). You will also want to consider a ceramic model they will heat evenly and a bit more slowly and will not create hot spots which can damage fine hair.
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).
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
This straightener heats up cools down very rapidly. It's light and easy to use. Doesn't singe your hair. The delivery was very quick too. Highly recommend this ghd straightener.
my hair legit gets all the time very frizzy and never gets straight. This product is amazing and I truly think it is the real ghd it heats up quick and my hair straight lasts a very long time. Great for the price... Totally worth getting.
Very pleased with these ghds. Came when they were meant to and was able to track. I like good service like this.
so many people gave negative reviews for this product. However I bought directly from amazon ghdprofessional and I can register mine successfully. Also after comparing with my old genuine styler I know the new one is not fake. Don't be bothered about on earth how many holes on the cord because both of my stylers have 2 holes. So just go from amazon ghdprofessional directly and you can save a lot.
Beachwaver Co. has reached cult-level status for its super easy-to-use Beachwaver, yes, but this styling iron from the brand is equally as notable. The beauty of it is the fact that you can achieve multiple looks with it. Use as is for a sleek, straight look or apply the black Coast Pro attachments (that are shaped like a round brush) and glide the iron down each hair section, rolling your wrist under towards the ends to create the illusion of a professional blowout.
excellent product best on the market
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.
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
Once you have a pair of ghds you will never go back to anything else.
my first time using ghd's and they are amazing I have never been able to get my hair to stay straight with anything else. I tried these and my hair looks fabulous well worth the money
the product is nice safe and easy to use.
Lovely item the usual excellent quality from ghd
I just wanted a 'cheap' pair of ghds and these have done the job. To be fair you are almost guarenteed a great product when you buy ghd whatever the model.
Love this ghd does a very good job and heats up very quickly. Really good purchase and well worth it.
A replacement as loved the first ghd straightener I bought.
