I love my ghd hair straightener and use it several times per week. It heats up quite quickly (in the region of 20-30 seconds) and heats to the perfect temperature for my hair. It's nice and light and feels comfortable to use. I find it less damaging to my hair than other cheaper straighteners, but find that it's definitely worth investing in some argan oil or other heat-protective product. Ghd straighteners are on the expensive end, but I think it's worth spending the extra money to buy a product that does a good job.
We’ll admit, the $150 price tag did give us pause, but when it comes to applying high heat to our hair, we want to make sure the styling process is as quick and snag-free as possible.

The thin, rounded barrel even makes it ideal for mastering those loose waves you’ve been dreaming of.

For me, the first and still very best of all ceramic stylers [and my dad is a hairdresser too]. It heats up fast, cools down relatively fast, works wonderfully and lasts a long time. In 11 years, I've bought two such stylers. The first one eventually died after 6 years of daily use, rarely skipping a day, while my second one is still going strong. I have no reason to recommend any other styler but this one. My hair is long and very fine.
