I love this flat iron. It doesn't burn my hair and leaves it feeling soft obviously with use of hair products.
BUYER BEWARE: I bought this from Amazon LLC, but the product would NOT register as authentic on ghd's site. I tried the hologram code and date code multiple times, but the site wouldn't verify the numbers. Also there was no country of manufacture listed on the unit, the box or the booklet. The styler looked great and was packaged well. Did the unit and stickers look authentic? Yes in every way. But the ghd site states: "fake ghd products are virtually impossible to spot." I called ghd, and a rep said sometimes legit numbers aren't accepted by the site (?!) - and told me that sometimes fake numbers go through. So in the end not sure what good the checker does. The rep did add that "Amazon is not an authorized dealer for ghd products." And the rep echoed what another reviewer said, "the only way to authenticate a styler not bought from us or an authorized dealer is to send it in to the warehouse." That's too much trouble for anyone. Is the one I bought legit? I just can't tell for sure. I'm not taking the risk. Returning it to Amazon.
As one of the hottest hair straighteners we have reviewed (temperature-wise…although it is pretty to look at, we have to admit…), the Solano Sleek Heat 450 Professional Flat Iron can reach temperatures of up to 450° F in as little as 60 seconds! This Solano hair straightener also features thin 1 inch plates, making it an ideal choice for anyone with short or medium length hair and the quick heat time ensures that even the most stubborn of curls can be tackled with a little extra heat. If you are looking or something a little larger though, it is also available with 1.54-inch plates too.
Perfection

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
EDITOR’S CHOICE: As the only hair straightener we reviewed featuring Keratin-infused ceramic plates, the LumaBella Keratin Duel Touch Hair Straightener is our top choice for the healthy, shiny hair you’ve always dreamed wanted!

worth every penny
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.

Ordered as replacement for older ghds which had developed an intermittent power problem due no doubt to winding cable around the tongs to keep them closed . Great value and work perfectly. Recommend alternative means of keeping jaws closed in future try the travel pouch
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 purchased these ghd straightners a few days ago and have been overly impressed with them. They are so far deinately the best pair of straightners I have ever purchased. My main concern was that they wouldnt be genuine but the ghd website said amazon was an approved seller and since haveing the straightners I have been able to register them so they must be genuine. I would definately recommend the straightners
so nice
why did I wait so long to buy these straightners they are fantastic I have had another make for years and thought they were good for my hair which is thick and strong. Since using ghd I now know why friends have been asking me to get ghd. My hair is so much sleeker. Great
This flat iron stopped working less than a year after I bought it and ghd will not warranty a replacement one because Planet Beauty or Amazon is not an authorized retailer for their products. Buyer BEWARE....if you purchase from here it will void the manufacturer warranty and you will waste your money just like I did. Planet Beauty was NO help to me in getting my flat iron fixed or replaced!

My stylist recommended me to buy this. It is a bit pricey but I get the salon quality style at home. I waited for a discount and used my amazon points to help with the cost. It did sit in my quot wish list quot for awhile but it was worth the wait to get it somewhat cheaper.
Negative ions have been a longtime fan favorite in the hair care industry, and it is no surprise that this same technology would appear in our top picks for the best hair straightener. Negative ions have been found to reduce static and frizz while locking in moisture, and the same goes for your hair when you use the CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron!
Still going like a champ after 2 years and heavy use by both my wife and daughter
I have the heated brush and Instyler. I find that I use the heated brush more only because it is easier and quick as a bed hair controller. The Instyler does need to be handled with care a little more as the barrel is hot but I got a safety cage with mine until I was confident. The Instyler is effective when I am starting from a mass of curles and I want straight. I never use any on wet hair I think that is asking for trouble. I don’t know that one is any better than the other just different options for different times.
recommended by my hair stylist. Was planning to order regular model but professional model was on sale. Heats up very quickly. Works great. I have curly hair but no on knows

Upper-class people have always used their hairstyles to signal wealth and status. Wealthy Roman women wore complex hairstyles that needed the labours of several people to maintain them,[44] and rich people have also often chosen hairstyles that restricted or burdened their movement, making it obvious that they did not need to work.[45] Wealthy people's hairstyles used to be at the cutting edge of fashion, setting the styles for the less wealthy. But today, the wealthy are generally observed to wear their hair in conservative styles that date back decades prior.[46]
I read a number of reviews before purchasing this flat iron. I am happy to say that I was able to register mine on the ghd website with no trouble. I used it this morning and I love it. I have been having trouble with my bangs looking like they are fried. First my hair dresser and I though it was stress since I had just lost my husband three year later it's still happening. We have narrowed it down to hair spray building up and or my cheap flat iron. I am not longer using hair spray and am using a shampoo to cleanse my hair of any products and I purchased this flat iron. Wish me luck that this well help me get rid of the frizz in my bangs.
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

best service and great price.


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.


I have curly hair and so it always took me much longer to straighten my hair. I saw my sister had this straightner and so I tried using hers and it took me about 10 min to get my hair totally straight anyways my other straightner had broke so I bought this one and it's really really good. Would very much recommend
Top stuff
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.
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.
