so I had the chi straightener for not that long probably a year and half and when it hit the bucket I was going to buy another one but kandee johnson on youtube recommended this one so I thought I'd look into it. It's more expensive than the chi but I really didn't want a straightener that would just die after a year. The chi only lasted as long as the cheaper straighteners I bought from walmart did. So I decided to shell out the money hoping it would be worth it. And so far so good. It's better than the chi by far it heats up in no time and lets you know when it's ready with a few beeps. It'll shut itself down if you don't use if after a half hour it'll keep beeping though to let you know to switch it off. It gets my hair smoother than the chi but what I really love is that it keeps my hair straighter. I have wavy frizzy hair and even if I straighten my hair but go outside on a humid or rainy day it'll frizz up and start curling like I'm possessed or something lol. With the ghd I can straighten my hair and know that it will last through humidity and even a few raindrops not a storm though haha. Also it doesn't damage my hair as much I don't know how since it has a higher heat setting but it does. I swear. So far I've had no problems with it and I feel like it's built to last
The LumaBella Keratin Dual Touch has been found to give 50% less breakage, splitting, and damage compared to other straighteners without heat sensor technology! While your hair straightener can’t repair years of damage overnight, this model can help restore the natural shine of your hair and allows you to keep styling by reducing additional damage by up to 50%! This means that it is safe for daily styling.
“Infrared is so beneficial being that the wavelengths are longer and can penetrate deeper into the cuticle heating the hair from the inside out, keeping your hair's own natural moisture, leaving the hair smooth (and) shiny and keeping it extremely healthy, versus other conventional styling tools that actually pull moisture out of the hair, leaving the hair dry, brittle, dull and damaged,” said hair expert and stylist Gina Rivera.
“My daughter loves this straightening iron. As a competitive cheerleader, she finds this tool incredibly handy since it can both straighten her hair and curl it. She says it heats up incredibly fast, which for her is great, given her impatience. It provides nice, slick hair and tames all her frizzies and flyaways. All her girlfriends like to borrow it, too, for their hair.”
I love these my first real ghd styler it really is better than all the rest
While it isn’t the fastest heating hair straightener we have reviewed, the CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron warms up to temperature in just one minute! If one minute seems like too long for you to wait, try adding a bit of multitasking into your morning routine by taking advantage of this found time. If you are at a loss for what you can do in just one minute, check out this list for a little inspiration:
bought one of these 8 years ago and it finally started going out so I ordered another one for my wife. Well worth the money in my opinion.
This feature is particularly beneficial for users with naturally wavy or curly hair, which can have a tendency to easily snag in hair styling tools. This floating design, combined with the heat sensor, also ensures that your gorgeous curls won’t become permanently damaged just because you decide to straighten things out a bit for an evening or two. After all, those curls are coveted by beauty pros the world over, and you never want to damage them just because of a styling trend!
Let’s face it: styling your hair is a 360° job. That’s why the folks at Cloud Nine have designed their Original Flat Iron with a swivelling 360° cord! No more tangled messes or twisted cords, with this hair straightener you can easily reach delicate fly-aways and seemingly invisible back sections without the hassle of a tangled or knotted cord ever again. When it comes to hair straighteners, the Cloud Nine Original Flat Iron really proves that perfection is in the details!
I have an older chi styler that is wider so I thought I'd give this ghd 1 a try. It heats really quickly and beeps to let you know it's ready. It also has a flashing led light. Even though I have beyond shoulder length hair it is very fine in texture. This narrower styler worked better for me. I can curl the ends under or flip it easier than with the wider styler. It glides through my hair without any tugs or pulls. It has a sleep mode in case you forget to turn it off. After 30 minutes it starts to cool down. The only negative is that it's hard to set it on the counter like it shows in the picture because the black part is so rounded that it wants to fall over. My chi is slightly flattened I guess it doesn't hurt for it to lay on its side since there is a small gap between the plate and the edge of the styler so the plate doesn't make contact with the counter but I wouldn't go off and leave it. It has a swivel cord which is a must for this type of styler.i don't use a styler often because my hair is fragile but when I do I will probably reach for this one. It leaves my hair smooth and shiny. It comes very nicely boxed so it would make a nice gift.addition I didn't realize when I wrote this review that there was a controversy over fake ghd stylers but I just registered mine and it is the real thing.
Exactly what I was looking for for a gift.my daughter in law loves it.
I would recommend this product to any lady that regularly straightens her hair. Product gets hot quick and turns off after about 30 minutes of no use. Simply the best straightener I've ever had.
very good hair straightener.
good price for ghd's so very pleased
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.
Nearly 21,000 people gave this flat iron a five-star review on Amazon. If they factored price into that rating, then I agree. For less than $60 it’s pretty spectacular, but it doesn’t beat the fancier ones in terms of performance. The temperature automatically drops after 15 minutes of use. And while it’s easy to adjust that, it is also slightly inconvenient.
Another excellent budget hot air styler is the Remington Style and Curl Air Styler and with 9 customer reviews giving 4.7 out of 5 stars I would recommend this product. This is a great on the go styler because it is lightweight so easy to pack away. It has two attachments so is suitable for medium length and shorter hair (25mm brush and 19mm brush) and has two heat and speed settings so you can set your curls and fast dry hair prior to styling. The Remington Style and Curl is good for flicks, curls and adding volume, giving a glossy, lustrous finish. Reviewers like the fact that it can be used on damp as well as dry hair and all say that it works a dream.
Most of the hair straighteners we reviewed heat up in under a minute, but the Cloud Nine Original Flat Iron has to be one of the fastest on the market! In as little as 20 seconds, this hair straightener transforms from cool to hot, hot, hot! With this model, there is no need to wait around for your hair straightener to warm up, which means you spend less time getting ready in the morning and more time getting on with your day.
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
better than my old paul mitchell.
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
This is a really lovely gift set the packaging is so nice and the presentation makes it feel really special. The brush and hair clips are both very nicely made I don't really understand the design of the clips exactly as they are very flexible but they certainly hold my hair well during styling the brush is as a brush is... Brushy I have very fine hair and it tends towards the static this made the issue slightly worse. I plan on sticking with my regular wooden brush. The carrying bag and heat proof mat are both well made not quite my style as the quilted look isn't my favourite but both are quite posh and it's just really handy to have somewhere to always put the straighteners wherever I am. I particularly like the silicon cap to put over the end of the straighteners though it's very minimalistic and I think I'll use this item the most.as for the straighteners they are just as good as ghd are renowned for. They heat up really quickly and they beep to let you know when you switch on the power and when they are ready. I appreciate the auto off feature too that switches off after 30 minutes just in case. The plates are smooth and don't catch my hair too much there is a slight issue with that and one of the seams it doesn't always happen but sometimes I do catch a hair. Overall I'm really pleased and looking forward to lots more good hair days.
Bought as christmas gift so not opened as such but bought my wife the last ghd straighteners 10 years ago and they are still going strong paid 40 more for latested ones purchased but 10 year no problems is remarkable and shows quality in product
The titanium plates in the BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron were designed to conduct high levels of heat (again, up to 450° F!) in a short amount of time. Coupled with the Nanotechnology that is packed in each plate, this hair straightener is ideal for anyone that experiences unwanted frizz or static on a regular basis! The titanium also acts as a barrier from corrosion keeping your hair straightener and precious strands free of build-up for years to come!
works like a charm
it has been 3 years and this thing works like it did the first time I used it which is wonderful love how small it is and easy to travel with. Great product.
Fine or thinning hair can easily become damaged under too much heat, so cooler temperatures (i.e., those under 300° F) are ideal for these hair types. If you have very curly, course, or thick hair, then higher temperatures upwards of 400° F may be more suitable to your needs. With the ISA Professional Titanium Flat Iron, you can cool it down to 265° F if need be and also crank it up to a whopping 450° F for textured styled.
Good value ghd brought for my daughter. She is pleased with it and so far no complaints. It does what it says on the tin.
Has the perfect heat so that it doesn't get my hair. I've used a chi for years but this is by far better. No breakage and not as many fly aways and I have very frizzy damaged hair.
my second purchase of ghd straighteners with the previous ones lasting 5 years with no loss of performance during this time. I use them daily. Hopefully these will last as long. Purchased from amazon as they offer such good customer service as well as a good price. There are a lot of fake ghds out there on other websites who are selling them at cheaper prices.
