Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hair straighteners I have thick frizzy curly hair, straightened it with ease, no problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has brilliant features I previously used the Toni and Guy wide plate straightners for my hair but found my hair would go frizzy and tangled the moment I stepped outside. However after hearing good reviews about the GHD straightners, I thought I would invest in some. I have to say these are the best straightners I have ever used. They straighten my hair in one go and leaves it feeling smooth, silky and of course straight! I use some heat protect spray before using the straightners to avoid further damage to my split ends. Best purchase ever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Good pair of hair straighteners only reason not given 5 stars is I had the original hair straighteners when they were first launched and you can tell they are not made to the same standard. Still a good product though and would only ever use these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love these straighteners but don’t buy direct I bought these after my old pair stopped working after a good 10 years of use. I love the straighteners but found them cheaper on Amazon. I tried to cancel my order within 30m of ordering but was told this wasn’t possible despite them only being dispatched 3 days later. I then had to pay £8 to return them. Highly recommend buying elsewhere as GHD customer service is SHOCKING. Completely off-putting and lets down a good product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dont get the hype I bought these because the names supposed to be good and my sister had some about 15yr ago and loved them, turns out the qualities changed over the years, the actual originals when they first came out 10 odd yrs ago could straighten a slinky, (joking but you get the idea) I straightened my hair and within hours it had gone curled at the end or flicked out, I'd have to go over pieces 5 or 6 times to get them straight in the first place, had them for 4 days and sold them, better, cheaper straighteners out there by a landslide.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with these for the price Will not recommend these was bought as a gift for my mum, she said the 1st use was brilliant but since 1st use they have been rubbish and don't work as well as they should. For GHDs I would have expected better. Especially for the price you pay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast delivery I received my GHD’s the next day, thank goodness as my old one’s died ( after 16yrs) I had read on another review that there was a gap between the plates, mine did too but only very slightly and my hair is thick enough to still get the grip Couldn’t do without my GHD’s

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bon produit GHD reste une marque que j’adore et que je quitterai jamais toutefois ce produit est un peu décevant par rapport à d’autres lisseurs que j’ai pu avoir chez GHD .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I used ghd for years but stopped buying them about 5 years ago thinking I would try less expensive straighteners. However nothing quite compares and I'm so happy to have a pair again. Apart from their very good performance the auto switch off is the peace of mind I've been missing! No more panic an hour after I've left home as to whether I switched them off or not!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overall not amazing I have always used GHD I had my last pet for 10nyears but thought it was time to update them. Treated myself to these abd very disappointed. The plates don't meet only the tip does meaning only a small amount of hair is getting straightened at once, very disappointed:(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time user xxxxx Never used straighteners before as Iv always had short hair. Got recommended these from my hairdresser and must say they are great.

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.

Asked by: Hippy
The ghd IV styler operates between 175 and 185 degrees and does not have a temperature control.

the plates doesn't stick flat to each other?if thats like should be?

i got a ghd 4 styler today and when i compare to my old one i notice thats the plates doesn't stick to each other .
Asked by: izabela
We can confirm that when ghd stylers are cold you will notice that there is a slight gap between the plates. This is to allow for thermal expansion and a smoother styling experience, the gap should reduce when the styler has heated up.

The plug model in Britain?

Is the plug different in Britain from the rest of Europe? Like in France for example?

Will these Straighter work in Canada

Hi I have a pair of these here in England but I'm moving to Canada for a year and I was wondering given the Canadian Mains Voltage is lower than the UKs will these work in Canada? THANKS, M x
Asked by: Monnia
Yes, the IV Styler will work in Canada. All of our stylers are equipped with universal voltage, which means that no matter where you are in the world it will work. The only thing you will need to do is use it with the appropriate plug adapter for the country that you are in.
