although I am pretty ancient I had never used straighteners until last year when I thought I'd try them out. I bought some cheap ones which did the job but the sides used to catch on my hair and break it. I don't have enough hair as it is so definitely can't afford to tear any of it so thought I'd try these ghd ones after a friend recommended them. They cost about 5 times what the others did but they are at least 5 times better. They heat up quickly and never catch my hair. Fab. I love them.
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.
The nano ceramic plates in this straightener deliver far-infrared heat, a gentler alternative in and of itself. As if that weren't enough, there's also a reservoir where you can pour in some of the (included) argan treatment and thermal protectant, creating a conditioning steam that will strengthen and safeguard strands while you straighten. Admittedly an extra step, sure, but one that's well worth it.
These flatirons are a great investment. I loved the results. For styling black hair. I would advise to curl you hair first and then apply oil. The irons gives a better curl on less greasy hair. It made my hair silky.
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.
