I love this flat iron. My hair is smooth and health.
Before curling, make sure your locks are completely dry and well combed. Put a heat protectant. Divide your hair into strands. Take one strand and run a flat iron through, twisting as you go. To get the better result, pin your curls and seal them with hairspray. Repeat until all strands are done. When your curls have cooled, release and gently brush them.
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.
So, when it comes to hair care, it is no surprise that the healing benefits of infrared technology would make their way into the industry sooner or later! The far infrared technology in the CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron leaves your hair looking and feeling smoother and silkier than ever before, while helping to restore your strands to their naturally strong and beautiful thickness.
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
used ghds for years. I wouldn't use any other straightners. Love them.
Hi do you have any views / recommendations on cordless or portable hot air brushes? I just bought a rotating hot air brush and love it as its easy to straighten and defrizz my hair while adding a bit of volume (I use it on slightly damp hair) but it’s just too big to carry. I am looking for an easy to carry hot brush that I can pop in my gym bag to help me finish off styling my hair after I rough dry my hair with the hairdryer at the gym. Thank you.
Remember, quality is an important requirement when it comes to getting the best hair straightener for your hair. A poor quality flat iron is not only going to work very well, it could cause damage to your hair that may take a long time to grow back. If you want good styling AND ensure the health of your hair, the best hair straightener is one that doesn’t come cheap.
this straightener is amazing. It heats up in about 20 seconds and is slim and does it's job perfectly. I tell all of my friends about it
I previously owned a basic chi for about 4 years until it recently stopped working. I bought this one after using a friend's ghd styler and I love it it does a much better job than my chi ever did and my hair stays straight for longer
If hair is pinned too tightly, or the whole updo slips causing pulling on the hair in the follicle at the hair root, it can cause aggravation to the hair follicle and result in headaches. Although some African-Americans may use braiding extensions (long term braiding hairstyle) as a form of convenience and/or as a reflection of personal style, it is important not to keep the braids up longer than needed to avoid hair breakage or hair loss. Proper braiding technique and maintenance can result in no hair damage even with repeated braid styles.
During the First World War, women around the world started to shift to shorter hairstyles that were easier to manage. In the 1920s women started for the first time to bob, shingle and crop their hair, often covering it with small head-hugging cloche hats. In Korea, the bob was called tanbal. Women began marcelling their hair, creating deep waves in it using heated scissor irons. Durable permanent waving became popular also in this period: it was an expensive, uncomfortable and time-consuming process, in which the hair was put in curlers and inserted into a steam or dry heat machine. During the 1930s women began to wear their hair slightly longer, in pageboys, bobs or waves and curls.
I was nervous after reading some reviews that others received a fake ghd. I had no problem registering this on their website and it looks identical to my old model which I bought for double the price four years ago.
Arrived on time product just as described this is my second pair of ghd's and I wouldn't be without them. A girls best friend. Would definitely recommend.
best flat iron ever. I had my previous one for 11 years.
If you are looking for faster results, a hair straightening brush is more appropriate – it is a hybrid between a brush and a straightening iron, used best on dried hair and effective even for the most unruly naturally curly hair. You can use the straightening brush on hair that is washed and dried, and obtain the straightening iron results with much easier and intuitive brushing move.
Easy to use styler no waiting for long periods of time for it to heat. It heats within seconds.
My hairdresser really rates ghd products saying they know about hair and make sure their products style without causing damage. Everything about the ghd styler speaks of quality and a lot of attention to detail. The blue accented shoebox outer packaging is pretty enough to use for long term visible storage a heat resistant mat wraps around the storage bag and the straighteners themselves have metallic icy blue accents bringing the whole thing together into a coordinated package.heating up time is fast at a few seconds with a helpful 'beep' sounding at switch on accompanied by a flashing light. You are alerted to full heat attainment by further beeps and a constant light. A full head of curly tending towards frizzy shoulder length hair was straight within a couple of minutes.the cord length was ample for my requirements and the straighteners proved easy to use. The plates made short work of the task and a useful silicone guard safely holds the plates together once you're done. Everything then packs neatly away into a storage bag which has a divider to ensure the lead and plug remain separate to the styler and around which the heat resistant mat clips into place.in summary• fast heat up time of a few seconds• beeps to alert once ready for use• easy to use with a generous lead• simple on off switch no temperature control needed • heat resistant mat and storage bag• silicone guard to hold the plates closed for easy storagethis would make a beautiful gift whether to self or another delivering both practicality and icy good looks.
Featuring advanced ceramic heat technology, the ghd Gold Professional Performance 2" Styler is designed to operate at the optimum 365°F styling temperature for healthy-looking hair with enhanced, lustrous shine. Styling thicker, longer hair is quicker and easier thanks to the larger plates that glide through strands without snagging for fast, effortless styling and flawlessly polished strands. It heats up in as little as 30 seconds to tame frizz and transform coarse textures into sleek, smooth styles that last. The styler has contoured, round edges to unleash undulating waves, and with its styling versatility, you can change your look every day.
I used to use a flatiron which doesn't curl the hair very well..leaves a crease in the hair. The ghd styler is awesome for both curling and straightening awesome product
I am a big fan of the ghd irons. I will not buy anything else. I have been a cosmetologist for 7 years and have had my first one since I started working and bought my second one for home 5 years ago. I highly recommend any style of ghd for any type of hair I've never ever had any problem with with either of my irons and use it throughout the day 4 days a week at work. To guarantee a real iron ask your stylist if they're able to get you an iron from their beauty supply distributer.
Excellent product. It works perfect until now at least . My hairs are very difficult to manage and to straighten but with ghd few minutes and they are perfect.
great quality fast shipping
foremost rest assured that if you purchase this item directly through amazon it is guaranteed authentic. If you purchase from a third party here there is no such guarantee. Before ordering this item I read the reviews and saw that many folks who purchased through the third party option ended up with counterfeit versions. And if this has happened to you please notify amazon immediately ... They will resolve the issue and the third party vendor will lose the right to sell at amazon. They take this very seriously. As for the product itself it does not get any better. It's just that simple. For years I have used the t3 line. I love their appliances and have never had a single complaint. But this ghd is even more outstanding.the straightener heats quickly and evenly. When hair is done in appropriately smaller sections this is a one pass system. It took me less time to straighten my hair with this ghd than with my t3 since my t3 often needs some quick touch ups .the swivel cord is a luxury that every straightener should have. In my opinion it's actually a safety feature rather than a convenience .my only tiny quibble is the fact that it does not come with a travel case. I had this small hope that it would be under the straightener so I took apart the box ... But no. My t3 came with a heat resistant travel case. I have taken it on every trip ... And never once had a problem. Here I am not sure that I'm willing to just toss it in my bag and hope nothing happens. Man and this straightener was sooo close to perfect if healthy hair is your priority choose this over any low end unevenly heated bare metal straightener. Yes it is expensive but when considering the health of your hair it is entirely worth it.by all means this is a superior product.
If you lived through this particular time in our world history, then you probably remember the super straight hairstyles that we all sported a time or two (bonus points if you took a photo of yourself like this in your bathroom mirror using a digital camera!). For reasons we may never know for certain, sharp and straight hair was the hairstyle of choice back in the early 2000’s giving the good old hair straightener somewhat of a bad reputation.
This edition of ghd has luxury christmas present written all over it plus points impressive packaging that is eye catching made of heavy cardboard and signalling a luxury product.quilted case with mirrored blue button and separator for the straighteners and it’s flex to be kept separately.quality heat may that is detachable from the case.beautifully designed straighteners in the same electric blue as the packaging with a silicone heat shield at the end.safety features cut off after 30 mins and a noise alerts you to them being plugged in being switched on or being switched off.the switch is inside the straightener so that you don’t accidentally turn it off as you are straightening your hair.plates glide through hair creating straightness without effort and as they are at the optimum 185 degrees without that crimped look at the top where you first inserted the plates.improvements that would’ve made it a 5 I needed a slightly longer flex maybe another 1 2 metre.i miss the option to choose the temperature that I had on my old straighteners. I appreciate their advice about 185 degrees being the setting that works best but I have very fine hair which is also frizzy and like to have a choice so that I can accommodate what my hair is up to that day.
My ghds finally broke after over 10 years so bought a new set still as good as they always have been
I was scared to buy this iron because of the other reviews. But I did and when I got it it was authentic I registered it on the ghd website with no problem
my wife loves it very awesome. She looks great
A few swipes from a professional hair straightener can finish off a high ponytail, restore life to split ends, and give your natural curls a relaxed look for a night or two. No matter what your natural hair type may be, there is a hair straightener as unique as the gorgeous locks on your head! Here are just a few of our favorite hairstyles that can be achieved using a professional hair straightener like the ones we’ve reviewed here:
Ghd make fantastic hair straighteners it's as simple as that. My girlfriend won't use any other make. This gold professional limited edition styler is very stylish and looks fantastic but most importantly it goes a great job as a hair straightener.
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
While there are a lot of great options to choose from, our all-around top pick is the LumaBella Keratin Duel Touch Hair Straightener. Featuring unique, keratin-infused plates for optimal shine and less damage, the LumaBella Keratin Duel Touch Hair Straightener proves that technology really can make a difference when it comes to hair care! We also love this model’s innovative smart heat sensors that protect hair from heat damage and lock in moisture.
love it totally worth it
My friend recommend this flat iron and I am so glad she did it works wonderfully. Heats up very quickly and beeps when its ready for use. Does a great job of straightening my long hair and it lasts until my next wash. Worth the money
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.
I really liked this device it has light weight and easy to use. Also it is become hot in few seconds.
There are all manner of detangling tools available in a wide variety of price ranges. Combs come in all shapes and sizes and all manner of materials including plastics, wood, and horn. Similarly, brushes also come in all sizes and shapes, including various paddle shapes. Most benefit from using some form of a wide tooth comb for detangling. Most physicians advise against sharing hair care instruments like combs and clips, to prevent spreading hair conditions like dandruff and head lice.
just received these as my first ghds and I'm amazed just how fantastic they are. They've straightened my shoulder length hair so quickly and better than any others I have tried. If you're thinking about getting these do it you won't regret it.
Other factors may also be important to you, including the weight of the unit, how comfortable the handle feels in your hand, whether there is an LCD display and an automatic shut-off feature, and the length of the power cord. But remember: heat levels come first, because they determine whether your hair comes out straight, shiny and silky – or a damaged, fried mess. Everything else is secondary.
works like a dream. Better than any other iron I have used before. Heats up fast and love the auto turn off
The ability to create bouncy curls or waves with a flat iron (we know, it seems counter-intuitive!) is a biggie in the beauty industry and merits a bit more discussion. If you’re totally lost and there aren’t enough video tutorials on the planet to explain this weird yet awesome process, don’t worry! Just follow along with our step-by-step guide and you will be curling with the best of them in no time!
I have very curly hair and used my friends styler and fell in love I bought this on amazon after reading the bad reviews. Beautifully packed in a very nicebox very easy to register b. So it’s not fake
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
You can select the required heat level from 170°F to 450°F which means this hair straightener suits for all hair types. For me, this is the best straightening iron for thick curly hair. It heats up in about 30 seconds, and the current temperature is shown on the LCD. This KIPOZI ion straightener comes in rose pink, and its slick design is just great.
I was little concerned as some people mentioned getting fakes but this is the real deal. It is so slick that it is almost too slick the hair slide through really quickly.
no matter what hair straightener I purchase I always go back to my ghd hair straightener.always does an amazing job
This Amazon bestseller has just about everything you’ll need in a hair straightener. The 1-inch plates are high quality ceramic and tourmaline plates for silky smooth results. These plates feature 8 HeatBalance microsensors that ensure temperature remains consistent and evenly distributed throughout. Plus, these are floating plates with curved edges so you don’t have to worry about snagging your hair while you style because the plates adjust the angle as you do your ‘do.
From the 16th to the 19th century, European women's hair became more visible while their hair coverings grew smaller, with both becoming more elaborate, and with hairstyles beginning to include ornamentation such as flowers, ostrich plumes, ropes of pearls, jewels, ribbons and small crafted objects such as replicas of ships and windmills. Bound hair was felt to be symbolic of propriety: loosening one's hair was considered immodest and sexual, and sometimes was felt to have supernatural connotations. Red hair was popular, particularly in England during the reign of the red-haired Elizabeth I, and women and aristocratic men used borax, saltpeter, saffron and sulfur powder to dye their hair red, making themselves nauseated and giving themselves headaches and nosebleeds. During this period in Spain and Latin cultures, women wore lace mantillas, often worn over a high comb, and in Buenos Aires, there developed a fashion for extremely large tortoise-shell hair combs called peinetón, which could measure up to three feet in height and width, and which are said by historians to have reflected the growing influence of France, rather than Spain, upon Argentinians.
For better or worse, we are B-U-S-Y nowadays. Running from meeting to meeting and trying to pick up our kids from carpool before soccer practice, it’s no wonder that we often place ourselves at the bottom of our daily priority list. This mindset typically carries over into our appearances and explains why more women than ever are rocking messy top knots and buns than ever before.
heats up so fast and does a great job straightening my hair I am not the most coordinated person and even I can use this.
these are genuine have just registered them with ghd don't believe the reviews that say they aren't. If the seller is amazon then they are genuine
Available with either ceramic plates (good for all hair types) or titanium ones (choice for curly, thick, and coarse textures), this innovative styler features touch sensor technology that lowers the heat when it's not being used, then automatically brings it back up to temp as soon as it's touched. Translation: No more waiting for your iron to heat up in between passes. Use it for smooth and sleek styles, or take advantage of the round brush-esque attachments to create more of a bouncy blowout effect.
The Mighty Mini Downtown Styler features lightweight, durable, and microscopically smooth titanium plates which can be used to create straight, wavy, and curly styles with a silky, snag-free finish. A ceramic heating element emits far-infrared heat which locks in moisture and protects the hair cuticle from damage. Reaching 400°F in under a minute, the ceramic produces negative ions which close the cuticle for smooth, shiny, frizz-free results.
I was weary about buying this flat iron I was afraid it was a fake . My fingers were crossed while entering my codes and it said you are the chosen one . I did not purchase mine straight from amazon just one of the sellers on amazon.
I've tried other brands of straighteners and I have to say you really can't beat ghd's. They heat up really quickly and leave your hair shiny and soft. Having wasted money on other straighteners I wouldn't buy anything else again
