Delivering safer-for-hair heat, the hair straighteners allow you to straighten and curl your hair without the damaging consequences. The intelligent irons expertly control the power to maintain an optimum 185ºC styling temperature at all times. Utilising innovative Ultra-Zone® Technology, each plate uses three sensors to ensure the temperature is consistently maintained across the entire plate to help reduce breakage.
I love these straighteners, but they didn't arrive in the best condition, if they were a present I would of sent them back but as they are for me I don't mind too much and I've already got rid of my old straighteners and I really can't be without a pair, as you can see in the pictures they arrived scuffed and scratched, they work absolutely perfect though, GHD are always the best. No competition.
It’s not your conventional-looking flat iron, but this straightening brush does the trick all the same. Just turn it on, brush your hair with its heated ceramic bristles like you would with a normal brush, and watch frizz turn smooth, shiny, and static-free in seconds. It’s not going to turn curly hair into sheets of silk, but it’ll straighten out any of your wonky waves or puffy layers.
Thankfully, we’ve learned a lot about hair care and preserving your hair’s natural integrity while styling. However, this wasn’t always the case. If you ever had a perm done in the 80’s or teased your hair to holy heaven in the 90’s, chances are pretty good that your hair has endured a bit of damage. The same can be said if you color your hair on a regular basis or recently went from your natural brunette color to a bright platinum blonde. No matter how the damage was caused, there are certain features you will want to shop for when selecting the ideal hair straightener for your course hair type:
Featuring breakthrough ultra-zone predictive technology, the ghd platinum+ styler recognises each section of hair and adapts the temperature to ensure the optimum temperature of 185ºC is consistent across the two plates allowing for 70% stronger hair*, 20% more shine and 2x more colour protection. The heat is monitored 250 times per second and through its predictive technology, the styler recognises the thickness of your hair and speed at which you are styling and adjusts accordingly so you get unbeatable results personalised to you.
It’s the “perfect size to throw in your purse on the go,” says one reviewer. Another, who found the smaller size to be life changing, writes, “Being that I’m a mother, a wife, and someone with a full-time job, I am constantly on the go. I don’t always have the time to smooth my crazy hair straight before leaving the house. I had a hairdresser inform me that my hair type was naturally frizzy, and I live in the humid state of Alabama to top it off. There is nothing more frustrating than spending ALL that time flat ironing my hair straight JUST for it to turn into a frizzy tangled mess as soon as I leave the house. It is AMAZING to be able to take my hair straightener wherever I go! This product has COMPLETELY boosted my self esteem and I don’t walk around feeling self conscious about my hair.”
The two strips of silicone atop Bio Ionic’s flat iron plates seem silly, but they serve an important purpose. By buffering the outer edge of the plates, they reduce your chances of hair snags. They also force you to glide the flat iron more slowly through your hair (they are called speed strips, after all). While the slower technique maximizes shininess and smoothness, the speed strips can become a bit of an obstacle if your hair is thick.
Ask any seasoned hair stylist for a flat iron recommendation, and you will hear the same brand time and time again: CHI. Known the world over as a leader in hair care and styling, CHI is your go-to name for salon results at home. While CHI offers a variety of designs (and fun colors!) to choose from, the brand’s G2 Ceramic and Titanium model is what caught our eye when researching the best hair straightener. This hair straightener is packed with high-tech features and an upgraded, ergonomic design for the shiniest and straightest ‘do you’ve ever seen!
With so many models and styles to choose from, it can be hard to find the right hair straightener for your medium or long hair. That’s why we love the Cloud Nine Original Flat Iron! This straightener is ideal for users with medium to long hair; this hair straightener can tame even the most stubborn tresses. Featuring 1-inch plates and low, medium, and high heat settings, this flat iron is ideal for anyone with thick or lengthy hair.
The goal of any skin-care routine is to tune up your complexion so it’s functioning at its best, and also troubleshoot or target any areas you want to work on. “Beauty routines are an opportunity to notice changes within yourself,” says the San Francisco skin-care specialist Kristina Holey. As your skin needs shifts with age, so will your products. Still, she adds, “it’s not about creating perfection.” Allow these three steps to become your daily ritual that fortifies your skin and grounds your day.
It’s therefore impossible to straighten any fine hair around the face without applying pressure and ripping that fine hair out! I contacted GHD customer services, completely confident that the set I’d received was a dud! I sent photos and a video upon request which clearly show the gap between the plates. But NO! GHD’s customer service department refuse to acknowledge this as a fault. Well I f it isn’t a fault then it’s very poor design and not fit for purpose at all. A quick Google search for ‘GHD plates do not meet’ throws up the same complaint from many others; there’s even a company which offers to adjust the plates of these GHD’s for around £15 so it’s clearly a common complaint. Watch the video attached (with the sounds!) the plates don’t meet until I’m squeezing them tightly shut with all my strength....imagine what that would do to your hair dragging it through whilst clenched shut!
Super fast heating up! I just turned it on, and I couldn’t believe it’s ready to go when it started beeping. My hair is on the thick and wavy side, and I’ve never been able to finish straightening it this fast. It literally takes me between 10 and 15 minutes. It also doesn’t burn my hair, or give it that awful burnt smell. I really like the bright shade of yellow. Definitely would recommend this GHD hair iron
What's GHD stand for?
The originals follow a very basic design of a flat iron – that means that they have straight edges as opposed to curved. Like all ghds, they operate at 185 degrees, which is the optimal level to be hot enough to have an effect, but not so hot that it will damage your hair to any degree. They also have a 1 inch width, which is the norm for all ghd’s too. For most people looking to pick up the cheapest pair of ghd’s possible, then the Originals give you the ability to do this.
I’ve started straightening my hair the moment I heard it was possible. And that was some years ago. I needed a replacement, and I’ve read a lot of reviews for Chi hair straighteners, Remington, and of course, my winner GHD. This GHD hair iron knows a thing or two about straightening! It self-adjusts its own temperature, and it doesn’t get all steaming hot on the outside while I use it. So no danger of burning my fingers, and I can just rest it on any surface with no damage, be it carpet, wood… I just love it, and I’m super happy with this buy
