Hair Straightening Tips & Tricks
Introducing ghd platinum®, our best ever styler.
Now you can achieve perfect results whilst respecting the condition of your hair* - no compromise needed. Intelligent tri-zone® technology maintains a safer-for-hair heat, constantly and evenly from root to tip. Ensures that you get the style you want, quickly and easily, in just one stroke.
ghd platinum® features a patented wishbone hinge to give you greater control when styling, enabling you to straighten from the root while keeping your hair perfectly positioned between the plates.
To achieve the best results with ghd platinum+, take a section of hair, no wider than the plates, and hold it away from your head. Place ghd platinum+ in at the root and slowly glide the styler through to the ends. For a perfectly straight finish, keep your styler moving straight through your hair. If you prefer a softer finish, turn your ghd platinum+ slightly just before you reach the ends.
DON'T style hair that's damp — make sure your hair is completely dry.
DO hold your styler with your fingertips and not your whole hand, keeping your fingers on top and your thumb underneath.
DON'T squeeze the plates too tightly. Your grip should be firm enough that your hair is held securely, but your fingers and thumb should still feel relaxed.
DO take your time! Glide your styler smoothly through your hair at the same speed as if you were gently brushing it.
