I had been using another straightener that I thought was wonderful but the ghd straightener changed my world! I have super thick hair that takes me forever to blow dry and by The time I’m done, I’m too exhausted to flat iron it. However, with the ghd flat iron, I can’t wait to do it because it just goes so fast! My hair has never looked better! Also love the little sleeve so it doesn’t burn my counters while it cools down. Only one wish was that there’s a heat setting. My 8 year old loves when I do her hair with it but I’m a littler nervous to use too frequently on her fragile hair for fear of destroying it.

Smooth plates, no pulling

This flat iron has a fairly wide, very smooth plate. It works it’s way easily through my hair without pulling or catching. It heats up and cools off quickly. It’s body is sleek and comfortable to hold. The control buttons are inside so they don’t interfere with use. I really like the rubber capping that’s included to keep my straightener closed. I received this complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion but the opinion expressed is all my own.

Great straightener

I was so excited to get this straightener. Who doesn’t love GHD? When I opened the box, I noticed how sleek and nice it looked. It also came with a rubber/silicone cover for the end. That would be nice if you are traveling and need to go ahead and pack your iron before it’s completely cooled. Once I plugged it in, it warmed up within 30 seconds so you don’t have to waste a lot of time waiting for it to heat up. I loved that the power button was on the inner side where the plates are so you don’t accidentally turn it off while using. The 2 inch plates were wide and smooth and allowed me to straighten my hair quickly. My blonde, straight hair was smoothed within minutes. The downside of this straightener is that there is no temperature adjustment. That is my only downfall to the iron. Other than that, everything is perfect about it!

LOVE it!!!

I don’t often use stylers for my hair, but I recently received this flat iron to review. I LOVE it! Thank you Influenster and ghd for the opportunity to try this in exchange for my honest opinion. Sometimes I will let my hair dry naturally and it’s nice and wavy, but there are times when I prefer it straight and this flat iron works much better and faster than trying to blow-dry it straight. It heats up quickly and makes short work of straightening my hair. An extra added perk is that my hair is so smooth after using it and no additional products are needed. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is in the market!

Amazing Styler for Long Wavy Hair!!

This hair styler really surprised me!! I have a slight wave in my hair and it can get frizzy. After spraying a heat protector, I turned this on and it heated up super fast. I was able to straighten my hair in a couple of minutes and it looks beautiful, sleek and frizz-free!! The texture of my hair is thin but I have a lot and I’m so impressed with how fast this was without any burning or damaging my hair. I strongly recommend this product!
