Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not like they used to be I bought this to replace my old Styler that had lasted me around 10 years. They certainly make them different now and they don't seem to heat up as hot as they used to. It doesn't smooth my hair the same and it does not have the same effect as my old Styler. It is like as if it was hotter it would be fine, it's like it is just not hot enough. I'm really disappointed given the price and reputation you think you are buying.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissappointed Had my first pair of ghds for xmas and am actually rather dissapointed in them. After hearing lots of people rave about them i asked my husband to buy me some for xmas. Really wish i hadnt bothered now. They dont even straighten my hair after leaving it to dry naturally... yes my natural hair is wavy but not overly.... 1st time i used them it took almost an hour to do my hair!! Now i have to use my other ones which are fantastic. My ghds are only any good the following day, just to blast them over my hair Wouldnt look at having these again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around great product This styling tool is well worth the money and has made styling my hair fun! I used to dread having to use my old flat iron as it would pull my hair when I straightened it. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always trust GHD. The quality is out of this world! Ive been using GHD products for years now and wouldn't change it for any other brand. It doesn't damage hair like other brands do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome results I've always wanted a GHD since they first come out. I was finally able to get my own this year with the bonus I received from my work. I love it!! I bought the original straightener. I have very fine hair so I didnt need one of the other ones with the extra heating and what not. I've used it on a couple of my friends hair and also my daughters hair. I always get complements when I've used it saying my hair looks nice and shiney. I love it and would buy it over and over again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not satisfied I recently purchased my second ghd, thought I’d just replace the old one. My new ghd is not effective, as it only has about a 1-2cm contact point at the top end of the straightner, so only a small part of the hair actually straightens and also therefor ot just pulls my hair. Complete waste of money. I am very disappointed with this purchase, but obviously the salon I bought it from would not take it back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just ok straightners are ok but my previous ones from a cheaper brand are just as good and they are half of the price, I find curling my hair more difficult as the plates don't stay together very well, you have to really squeeze them or the hair just slips out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from La plancha ghd es la mejor que he probado hasta el momento. La plancha ghd original es perfecta.Yo por ejemplo tengo melena larga, y el pelo teñido y con mechas y no me lo estropea nada.Lo deja con un acabado brillante y perfecto.Alisa y riza perfectamente.Yo tenía miedo que las ondas no las dejara muy marcadas pero la recomiendo totalmente. Se nota que es una plancha de muy buena calidad que no te quema el pelo para poder dejarte un peinado perfecto.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Diminshes Hair Quality I bought these to replace my original GHD straighteners which I bought about fourteen years ago. The new ones feel slightly less robust but work well and I'm expecting them to last, given the price. However, in the past couple of weeks, after a short time using these new straighteners, I have noticed that my hair is snapping off. My whole life I have had strong, thick and shiny hair and it seems no coincidence that my hair is now looking damaged after using these new straigheners. I don't know if they are hotter than the original ones as they don't seem to straighten my hair any better. I will limit the amount that I use them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bon appareil mais trop cher Ma fille m’a offert cette appareil que je souhaitais avoir depuis un moment. Je suis déçue du résultat vu le prix. Il lisse correctement mais faut passer plusieurs fois et ça ne dure pas plus longtemps qu’un autre fer à lisser. Le seul avantage c’est que les cheveux sont doux et soyeux. Vu le prix, je ne peux donc pas le conseiller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best straightener. These straighteners are great for short or long hair, I’ve had both so I have used them to straighten, to flick, to curl etc etc...I have used over at least 30 different tongs and straighteners over the years and find these do not wreck my hair, in fact this is why I tried them in the first place. This is my second purchase of GHD and I will not buy anything else. I love how quick they heat up and have different features that prevent you from forgetting they are actually on, very safe to use. They are also reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Me encanta! Tengo el pelo fino, rizado y muy encrespado. No había tenido nunca una ghd, y he descubierto una maravilla. No tardo nada en alisarme el pelo y noto mucho la diferencia a comparación con otras planchas baratas que había tenido. Me deja el pelo brillante y nada encrespado.

What size are the plates on the Ghd IV styler?(large,medium or small)

Asked by: EllaKate
The ghd IV styler comes equipped with our standard size plates which are 1 inch in width.
Answered by: MATTH
Date published: 2019-02-10

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.

Why is there no sleeve to wrap around the blades for protection, is this something that suddenly becomes an extra!!!

Asked by: Keystone
The plate guard has only been designed for selected stylers this does not included the IV styler.

Do they have temperature control

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.
