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.

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
My first ghds and I would highly recommend them they heat up in seconds and my hair stays straight for days.
Less common but still worth mentioning are “hybrid” styles of hair brush straighteners. Some are similar to a flat iron but with bristles on each of the plates, while others have a rotating barrel on one side and a plate with bristles on the other. You’ll also see lots of inexpensive, non-heated straightener brushes, but we won’t be focusing on those in our reviews.
The ghd classic 1 inch styler is the bomb it heats up in seconds after being turned on feels balanced and streamlined in my hand has a swivel cord that never gets tangled and safety guards at the tip to prevent accidental burns. I can now style my long hair in half the time it formerly took.
Great flat iron does the job well.
if you are really aching to get this please do not go with the free shipping fedex smartpost it took two days for amazon to send out and about ten days in transit.as for the authenticity the ghd I got was one the chosen one . This is my first ghd when first using it my hair was 80 percent dry I know I know it is not good to straighten hair while damp I was so excited I used it right away. When I finished the rest of my head I noticed there wasn't one wet patch of hair on my head and I hadn't burnt myself on my scalp.i've had many high end straighteners very many. Most of them costed as much if not more as this did. However the difference between this one and all the other ones I've had is that I didn't have build up in my hair after straightening. It's like the excess moisture completely evaporates and leaves the natural oil's in my hair. This by far is the best straightener I've ever used.my hair is the softest it has ever been and it feels very natural and flowy.by the way I have thick curly and semi kinky hair. It took me 30 minutes to straighten my whole head of head the first time I used this.
I got these after using my sister in law's ghds and realising that my 11 year old babyliss ones were sadly inferior. I love that they heat up really quickly as when you have 3 small boys to get to school pre school every second counts. The results last overnight too with maybe a quick spruce up the following morning. All in all worth every penny
