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.
I love this straighter its the mercedes of all straighteners. It gets hot really quickly and doesn't burn my hair. The seller is great. The shipping was quick and painless I'm very pleased

heats up within seconds great and easy use doesn't dry out hair. Leaves the hair shiny and perfect to style the way you want it

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 spent years and years looking for the ultimate set of straighteners but have always resisted the ghd's because of the price but I finally gave in and ordered a pair this sunday and they arrived today I can assure anyone that these are the real thing the serial number has been authenticated by the official ghd website. As for the results wow my hair has never felt or looked so good and I have fine curly frizzy hair I have even washed the car and guess what no frizz or curls please order them you seriously won't be disappointed
I was happy the moment I got this its so smooth when you use it was abit caught off guard by the different power cord but that was quickly fixed but nonetheless I love this piece of a styler
I have had this straightener for months now and I love it. I have really thick hair and it gets the job done quickly.pros heats up incredibly fast beeps to tell you when it's ready doesn't fry your haircons no ability to adjust temperature non movable irons as opposed to amika which I had before I would definitely recommend this for anyone who's looking for a simple but high quality straightener.
works like a charm

Had to buy a new one since mine was lost in luggage. Couldn't be happier to have it back

by far the best flat iron out there and I've tried them all. Unbelievably smooth use and finish. Floating plates are wonderful. No snagging at all and it leaves my hair silky and shiny with one pass. I have long thick wavy curly hair that I like to wear straight. I bought my first ghd 10 years ago. It still works wonderfully but I felt like it was time to buy a new one. I'm going to give the other one away to a teenager who wouldn't otherwise be able to buy one. I went and bought a chi thinking perhaps it may be better based on the popularity of the brand. I returned it. I also tried babyliss and after much research a croc and returned those as well. Neither gave me the silk and shine that the ghd does and the chi snagged my hair. Go with ghd. You won't regret it.

When using a brush straightener, you should keep several things in mind. First, always apply some kind of a thermal protectant. Comb your locks properly. Second, be aware of the hot bristles – you don’t want them to touch your scalp. Third, don’t hold a brush straightener as a regular brush however tempting and easy this seems. You should hold it kind of upside down so that bristles won’t touch your skin. To straighten a strand in one pass, hold the brush tight to the surface of the hair. More detailed guide on how to use a hair straightening brush you can find in this article.
I love this product I have curly wavy medium thick hair and it makes my hair feel silky and smooth. The iron heats up really quickly and easy to use. This product came in brand new as if I had just bought it from the store myself love it.

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.
Creative director of GLAMSQUAD Giovanni Vaccaro prefers this flat iron by Sedu. "The ceramic plates are really key to maintain the integrity and healthiness of the hair," he says. To get expertly straight hair, Vaccaro recommends using a boar-bristle brush to help mediate frizz, and that "the follow through is key" when moving the iron and comb completely from roots to tips.
I had the hsi professional which I thought was pretty good but this ghd flat iron definitely beats it in all aspect which it better be since the price is 3x as much . First I like it that it beeps to let you know that it's ready to be used after plugged in. Second it's very light so for a person with thick hair like me usually takes forever to smooth out all my hair it's less tiring. Last but not least it straightens just in 1 2 strokes and it lasts it cuts down my hair prep time by half if not more. Save up a little longer and get this instead of hsi which is also less compact
Unlike all the other hair straighteners on our list, the Turboion RBB Croc Classic looks a little bit different. It looks more like its namesake – a croc. But that’s not the only thing that makes it stand out. First of all, the shape is unique and perfectly ergonomic. It fits very comfortably in your hands that you barely feel the strain as you style your hair. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that it only weighs 1 pound. The smooth titanium plates on this flat iron gives you a very smooth glide. There are 17 different digital heat settings that range from 280 degrees Fahrenheit to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Apalus is another flat heated hair brush, primarily for use on dry hair. It applies constant heat when you turn it on, although it takes longer to warm up than models which use metal ceramic heating technology (this one simply uses ceramic plates). It can reach 180°F in 60 seconds, but will take three minutes to hit its top temperature of 450°. That can make this unit frustrating to use if you have to straighten thick hair.
this is an amazing styler I've used regular curling irons for the last couple of decades with my preference being a fatter iron. This is the first time that I've used a flat iron. I had a lot of fun playing with it and was surprised by how well and how quickly it worked. It heated almost instantly sounding a chime when it was ready to use. I sectioned off my hair and used it according to the directions on their website. It felt so slick and smooth as I pulled it down my hair that I wondered if it even made contact. However my hair was warm and perfectly straight so it did the trick it only took a few minutes for my entire head of hair to be stick straight. That's not how I wear it I was just playing. I found directions online for curling with the ghd styler and went to work. It was a little tricky at first because I was using it a way that I never used a curling iron. It didn't take long for me to get the hang of it and soon I had loose waves and curls that looked and felt wonderful. I'm thrilled with it the ghd classic styler that I received is genuine. Based on the comments here I immediately went to the ghd website and registered it and verified that it was the real deal. The only problem I had was reading the tiny date code printed inside the unit. I finally had to take a picture of it with my phone and enlarge it a little so I could make out the numbers.
Not my first ghd. Very happy with both of them. My last one quit so I'm hoping this one lasts longer.
I love it it works perfectly.
While the BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron is a great option for a beginner or someone on the go, we like to think of the Solano Sleek Heat 450 Professional Flat Iron as the no-nonsense, professional-grade alternative for anyone with short or medium length hair. This Solano professional hair straightener isn’t just for stylists or beauty bloggers though: the fast heat time and maximum heat temperatures make it an ideal choice for any aspiring stylist-to-be or anyone with stubborn shorter styles.

This was the best purchase I am happy with the quality and results. I am sure it will last long.
You cannot fault quality and excellence both things we have come to expect from ghd. Some brands are hyped for no reason but ghd is a case of 'you get what you pay for' and what you get in this instance is very good indeed. The perfect christmas gift for the wife mum partner daughter in your life. You can rely on this brand I assure you.

An upgrade from their since discontinued Eclipse Styler, you won't be tempted to heat this flatiron up to 450 degrees, because the temperature dial is always stuck on one number: 365 (the ideal heat to mold hair without frying it, according to the scientists at GHD). Underneath each of those 365-degree plates are three fancy sensors that measure the density of the hair in the iron so that it can maintain consistent heat regardless of the chunk of hair you grab. The result? Silky, shiny hair with zero frizz.
The first pair I had had to be returned and I manged to get a a repalcment even though it was 30 days over the purchase. Was is excellentmy new ones are perfect and work like try ghds

my daughter is loving having ghd for the first time and am loving it so she stops using mine
During the 1920s and 1930s, Japanese women began wearing their hair in a style called mimi-kakushi (literally, "ear hiding"), in which hair was pulled back to cover the ears and tied into a bun at the nape of the neck. Waved or curled hair became increasingly popular for Japanese women throughout this period, and permanent waves, though controversial, were extremely popular. Bobbed hair also became more popular for Japanese women, mainly among actresses and moga, or "cut-hair girls," young Japanese women who followed Westernized fashions and lifestyles in the 1920s.[27]
this was a birthday present for my daughter and she received it by her birthday and was extremely happy with it. Works great with her corse hair.
We don’t know too many people that are using their hair straighteners vertically, but there must be a few since ISA has made a point of clarifying that this model is intended only to be used horizontally, i.e., perpendicular to your hair. According to the manufacturer, using the hair straightener horizontally reduces hair pulling for a more comfortable experience. This may be particularly important to you if your hair tends to knot easily or you have unruly curls and texture.

Absolutely love this styler. I have extremely thick hair and have so many issues with my previous chi pulling my hair out. The ghd does not pull at all. Not only does it heat up super quick but it gives me a perfect do in no time a must buy

The FemJolie flat straightening brush is convenient because of its lightweight, less than one pound. It’s extremely flexible because it allows you to select temperatures as low as 176° (too low for most users, but not bad for a brief touch-up) and as high as 450° (the right setting for those with very thick hair) in increments of 9°. The brush auto-locks at your selected temperature so you can’t burn your hair by mistake and so it automatically heats to the right temperature every time you use it; you can easily override the auto-lock if you choose.
this is the best straightner period
Not sure which temperature setting is right for your hair? We recommend starting slow and building up to higher heat settings gradually. Not only will you be able to perfectly identify the optimal heat setting for your hair, but you will also avoid overheating. After all, very few of us actually need upwards of 400° F to see the salon results we’ve always wanted!
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.
According to hair pro Christian Wood, if you want to make sure your hair stays in the place, use the GHD gold mini styler. “I prefer a small straightener that I can get really close to the roots to remove stubborn kinks and cow licks,” says Wood. The small straightener trick is probably how he nails the beauty looks of Tessa Thompson, Emily Ratajkowski, Rosie Huntington, and Olivia Munn.

I bought these to replace my older pair of about 8 years they are the best on the market worth the price you will not be disappointed I registered mine with ghd with the hologram code and date code with no problems this will prove authenticity for peace of mind.
I read a lot about fake stylers but I have no complaints at all. It arrived on time and with the series number that I was able to register at ghd.com. Works perfectly and stops heating if untouched for some time which helps if you accidentally forget to switch it off.
