GHD Straightener Review

I got this GHD hair straightener for christmas from my cousin. I was looking for one for a while and I was super happy to receive this one. It is an amazing straightener! Quite pricey but if you are looking for a high quality professional hair straightener, this one is perfect. It gets very hot quickly and smooths over your hair effortlessly. Its great cuz you can use it as a straightener or to curl your hair, but I do admit I'm not very good at curling my hair with the straightener! I would definitely recommend this one if you are looking to upgrade your straightener. Everyone who borrows it always tells me how much they love it!

-Constant styling temperature, iron heats up to max temperature every millisecond ensuring optimum heat on the hair from root to tip
-Sleep function turns off iron if not used for 30 minutes
- Universal voltage feature (although I'm still hesitant to use this if I'm traveling to another country in case it short circuits it)
-Ceramic-coated aluminum plates help seal the cuticle and create shine while locking in hair's natural moisture
-Emits a large proportion of infrared heat and negative ions, both of which are less damaging to the hair, reducing static and creating shine by closing the cuticle.

It really depends on your needs on if you really need to spend this much on a hair tool. I do believe that a higher quality/professional hair styling equipment work much better than your average drugstore brands, but I don't think professional grade fits everyone's needs. If you need something simple, then a hair dryer and straightener from your local Target will work just fine for you! If you hair is more difficult to manage, then I would definitely recommend to upgrade to a professional styling tool. I do have a pension for professional grade since my mom works with this stuff so I may be biased but I def noticed a difference between my Super Solano hair dryer and my Conair.

Next purchase, a new curling iron since mine broke :(

I got a Chi when that came out and I thought that was pricey - 5 years back, LOL but it still works great! So I'm sure this will last forever :) Oh and just keep praticing with the straigthener, before I cut my hair I never used my curling iron after I got my straigthener - the curls last way longer too!

Thank you for your warm comments, high school was over a decade ago for me, it's funny how a stranger can bring up old insecurities.

Honestly, I don't know a lot about hair products! My hair straightener is a Phoe Bi whatever that is... And I think it works really well for my hair. I can straighten and curl my hair with it too! My curling iron was a cheapo Walmart one. Would love to know what kind of curling iron to get. I always tend to get the cheapest and then it breaks. Go figure....

A girl friend of mine recommended GHD as she's been using them for years. This year I bought the new GHD Blue Straighteners - Serenity sourced from GHD Straighteners Online and they are a fantastic product! And I curl my hair but not with curling irons. I use my straighteners and have fantastic results. The way I see it is buying one good product that does two jobs- straightening and curling!
