I had a set of ghd straighteners a few years back and my daughter always said they were the best she used.this new set is of apparent equal standard containing the straighteners and a heat resistant mat. The real bonus with these is the heat limiting built in setting of 185 degrees which ensures no hair burn. The second bonus is the hot plates being both above and below the hair.great and highly recommended
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
still have my ghd to this day and love it my daughter has one also. Literally only takes seconds to heat up and beeps when ready. It gets hot and I mean hot so I use a heat styling product with it. I can't tell you how many times I decided at the last minute I needed to straighten and I only had 10 15 minutes or even 5 for a real quick top layer straightening as apposed to 40 60 minutes. I was able to plug it in turn it on and within seconds it was hot and ready to go I know it's pricey but it has great bones and I love the ceramic plates on it. It really is an outstanding and superior product compared to the stuff sold at your corner pharmacy or other large nearby retailer.
In short YES! You absolutely can use too much heat on your hair. Burning hair is not a good smell, it’s not a good look either! You may end up having to get a pretty severe haircut if you’re not careful about the amount of heat you put directly on your locks. Read through this to get an idea of what’s safe and what will leave you wishing for a good trim (or possibly a wig).
I bought this as a replacement for a 2008 ghd and whatever they have to change the models since I absolutely love it my hair comes out shiny and smooth and it takes me half the time to straighten my wavy hair as it did before. It heats up in 10 seconds.it also has not had any residue build up on it I've had it about 6 months whereas I used to have to clean my old straightener periodically.
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:
I had an older set of ghd's which lasted nearly 10 years. So I replaced them with these. Delivery was quick and the product is great. They heat up really quickly and the design is easier to hold when curling my hair.
These are my 2nd pair of ghd s and I wouldn t buy anything else. They are definately the best. They don t pull on your hair like some cheaper straighteners and they heat up really quick. They last for years my first pair which are still working fine were bought in 2008 10 10
I will start by admitting that I really don't do much with my hair. It's naturally curly and I never even blow dry it. I gave my last flatiron to my daughter when she went away to college.but after using the ghd styler I think the reason I never did much with my hair is because I was always using substandard products. This styler doesn't pull my hair. It runs through smoothly. It takes at most two passes to straighten my hair. It heats up really quickly. I love the fact that the cord is super long and swivels. It doesn't leave my hair looking frizzy. It even helps to straighten out my cowlick at my hairline. It curls easily as well but I mostly just used it for straightening .it has an on off switch and a led light to indicate when it's ready to use which is about 30 seconds it's super fast . It's also dual voltage which is fantastic when I travel you just need to provide a plug adapter for the outlet .it's pricey but definitely worth the money. If you are in need of a styler to use every day invest in this one
my hair legit gets all the time very frizzy and never gets straight. This product is amazing and I truly think it is the real ghd it heats up quick and my hair straight lasts a very long time. Great for the price... Totally worth getting.
This feature is particularly helpful if you have textured hair with waves or curls, which can become damaged so easily by heated styling tools. That said, it is not clear which heat setting is ideal for users with thick or somewhat straight hair. This may make this slightly more difficult if you are using a flat iron for curling purposes or if you need to straighten an especially thick head of hair each day! However, we are confident that a little tinkering is all it takes to find the perfect heat setting for these different hair types and styles, so you can rest assured that this hair straightener can still meet all your hair styling needs!
The Glamfields straightener, like most of our top-ranked models, releases negative ions to fight frizz while preventing split ends and knotting. Performance, though, sets it apart from the pack. Hair is straightened beautifully and quickly with the unit’s metal ceramic heater requiring just a 40-second warm-up, eliminating a long wait for the brush to reach temperature. And speaking of temperature, there are 12 heat settings ranging from 250° (ideal for brittle hair) to 450° (hot enough to straighten extremely thick or wavy hair).
I was not expecting this kind of straightener from ghd. Complete waste of money. Cheap quality straightener.
Was worried following some negative reviews about this not being a genuine ghd product. However product arrived with ghd tag with details on how to register with ghd. This was done on the official ghd website and ghd have verified the product.
