Does it work in a wet hair?

Asked by: Caroline2015
None of our stylers, including the ghd IV Styler, are designed to be used on wet hair so your hair needs to be completely dry before styling. We would also always recommend using the ghd Heat Protect Spray before styling and drying your hair to help protect it from heat related damage.

Has the design changed for the IV over the years?

some reviews have mentioned the plates don't meet in the middle on the IV anymore. I bought mine 7 years ago (which went bang today), and the plates meet in the middle for smooth straight hair. Has the design or quality changed in any way since then? Is it the same great quality product which will give the same great results?
Asked by: CurlyC
We can confirm that the ghd IV styler is designed to have a slight gap between the plates to allow for thermal expansion. Once the styler has heated up this gap reduces and does not affect the styling experience.
