In many cultures, including Hindu culture and among the Wayana people of the Guiana highlands, young people have historically shaved off their hair to denote coming-of-age. Women in India historically have signified adulthood by switching from wearing two braids to one. Among the Rendille of north-eastern Kenya and the Tchikrin people of the Brazilian rainforest, both men and women shave their heads after the death of a close family member. When a man died in ancient Greece, his wife cut off her hair and buried it with him,[39] and in Hindu families, the chief mourner is expected to shave his or her head 3 days after the death.[43]
Love this straightener. It leaves my hair smooth and straight without frying the ends. Its also great for curling hair if you watch a few quot how to curl hair with a straightener quot youtube videos and you're able to get the hang of it so there is no need for both a curling iron and straightener. Also makes it easier to travel with less electronics. I received the hsi first and it fried my hair without even straightening it. This is the answer for all hair needs
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.
it might be expensive but when you have a lot of holiday functions to attend getting it right first time is a must and for my other half that means going with a quality brand to do a fab job. She loves her good hair day products and with this little gift set on hand she's not only going to feel pretty damn special but will enjoy using it. Ok so it might be a christmas present but hey who says that the lady in your life has to wait it can be an early gift and perhaps day one of her own personal advent calendar.right yes its pricey however other products we've had from them have lasted years of constant use and as mr royce used to say quality is remembered long after price. Add to this a swish presentation box that looks nice and expensive alongside some straightners that will help get those tricky little bits on the side that just love to fluff up and all round I know that my other half is going to be more than happy. Ghd you're stars.
this is my second ghd my first lasted 10 years. Does not break hair. My hair is thick but fine and breaks easily. I have no problems with it. Hope this one lasts another 10 years
After all, there are so many different hair types, short, medium and long lengths not to mention a variety of textures. Rather than ploughing through the thousands of stylers on the market I have written a short guide as to those I think will work for you.  The information is extracted reviews by people just like you, with different hair types and expectations….so read on for what my recommendations are:<
Fabulous straightener

It still works just as well as the first day I bought it. It is a very quality and reliable flat iron that holds up to its award winning standards. Since buying this product I have noticed more shine to my hair as well as little to no frizzing. It is effective in keeping my hair straight and smooth all day. In fact I have had friend’s use this styling tool and purchase it after using it because they loved how quick and easily it flat ironed their hair.before I purchased the ghd I used a chi flat iron compared to a chi straightener the ghd keeps my hair looking healthier and less dry. After using this product I would not return to using a chi straightener because of the positive effect the ghd has had on my hair. Although the cost is high it delivers the promised performance. This product is designed for men and women with thick and curly hair looking to straighten their hair in a fast and healthy way. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that flat iron’s his or her hair on a regular basis

I ordered the one directly sold by amazon and it was genuine. It had the hologram sticker on the inside and I was able to register it on the ghd website.as far as the product ghds are the best straighteners out there and are well worth the cost.
I bought a ghd in london while traveling. I couldn't love a hair straightener more. It heats up so quickly and is universal voltage so you can use it anywhere in the world. I've had mine for over a year and use it almost every day. Don't mind the price it is worth it
Between 27 BC and 102 AD, in Imperial Rome, women wore their hair in complicated styles: a mass of curls on top, or in rows of waves, drawn back into ringlets or braids. Eventually noblewomen's hairstyles grew so complex that they required daily attention from several slaves and a stylist in order to be maintained. The hair was often lightened using wood ash, unslaked lime and sodium bicarbonate, or darkened with copper filings, oak-apples or leeches marinated in wine and vinegar.[12] It was augmented by wigs, hairpieces and pads, and held in place by nets, pins, combs and pomade. Under the Byzantine Empire, noblewomen covered most of their hair with silk caps and pearl nets.[13]
“This product really deserves its five-star review. Let be really clear here, I HAVE 4C HAIR … I spend so much time detangling my hair that it is ridiculous! I mean hours, and I have tried every trick in the book. By the time I finish one section, the other has gotten tangled again. My hair is so thick that it would take me 45 minutes to blow it dry, so I just never did it. [With this brush,] I was able to blow dry my hair on the cool setting in 20 minutes. I did use heat protectant along with a leave in in as well as some black castor oil heavily on the ends. I am able to comb through my hair now. I am so relieved. I think I am going to start seeing some real growth now that I will not be putting off my wash days because I simply don’t have the time for all that detangling. Not to mention that I was always losing a lot of hair with the detangling process. … I did notice that the high setting was really hot, I just used the cool setting and it worked wonders. The bristles are very malleable and the bristle tips are rounded. I have read that some folks have had a problem getting their roots to dry. I had no problem at all. This product is well worth the price. I would have paid three times as much just to be able to part my hair without all of the tangles.”
Haircuts also occur in space at the International Space Station. During the various expeditions astronauts use hair clippers attached to vacuum devices for grooming their colleagues so that the cut hair will not drift inside the weightless environment of the space station and become a nuisance to the astronauts or a hazard to the sensitive equipment installations inside the station.[49][50][51]

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
no matter what hair straightener I purchase I always go back to my ghd hair straightener.always does an amazing job
Wife having as replacement after 5 years using first one ghd.
The high-density bristles on the professional-style nano comb are designed to prevent curly hair from catching in the teeth. However, that also means straightening your hair can take longer than it does with the Glamsfields or AsaVea, because you may need to make more passes with the brush. Heat-up is fast (60 seconds) and the heat is evenly-distributed thanks to metal ceramic technology. The double-ionic generator works to prevent frizz and split ends.

My first ghds and I would highly recommend them they heat up in seconds and my hair stays straight for days.


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.
Just like the other reviewer I am not surprised to see a bad review about ghd. A lot of the ghd irons sold on this website and others are fake reproductions sold as the real thing and even if they were real such as the ones sold on ... The warrantee is not valid because they are not authorized distributors. Luckily for us we can now purchase the ghd styler directly from its official website I guess they finally realized there are too many fake ghd out in the market so stop wasting your money on these fake ghd imitations and get the real deal. Ghd is the best flat iron out there. It is used by the 'real' professionals everywhere in the world not these fake a corner store salons. Even when I traveled to europe most high end salons I visited used ghd. Plus ghd has dual voltage in other words you can take it around the world no problema. By the way if your hair is breaking perhaps you should reconsider how often you flat iron your hair and the types of products that you use. I personally only flat iron it once maybe twice a week 1st upon washing my hair and later on in the week as a touch up .these tools are not meant for everyday use just like with anything else in life too much of a good thing can turn out not to be so good in the end...or something like that... The point is you need to take better care of your hair. I personally like to use the biolage brand. You can also get a good deep conditioner such as baba de caracol or alter ego garlic dominican italian deep conditioners respectively and a good blowdryer such as turbo. I also like chi but they break within 6 12 months so don't waste your money there. To style your hair use chi infusion or moroccan oil 9it's a dry oil not actually oily and there you have it instead of styling your hair everyday wrap it at night and it will be as good as new the next day. Now go to ... To get the real deal. Do not settle for anything less... Ghd is the realest well you get the point
hot immediately smooth easy to use recommended by my hairstylists and well worth the money have not owned a chi so can't compare.

Just what you expect from ghd the wife loves them and they do a fantastic job
