Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for thick long hair My hair is very thick and long ... straightens with 1-2 Passover’s very smooth very fast the wide plates make light work of a lot of hair ... they feel sturdy and comfortable to hold

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for long thick wavy hair Bought to replace an original basic 10 year old pair. Really love them as my hair is long thick curly and prone to frizzing. They’re really quick and do a great job

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent but doesn’t glide smoothly through hair. I wanted to love the flat iron but it snags my hair. Other than that, it’s great. I suspect titanium performs better than the the ceramic on this model. It’s plenty hot. The effect lasts for longer than my last flat iron but it does not glide smoothly through my course, curly hair. Go with a rounded iron if you want to create curls. Overall, go for titanium instead of this flat iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is fantastic What can I say, this product has made my life so much easier. I have curly frizzy hair as a rule but with this product it’s smooth and sleek in no time. It’s quick to heat up. Easy to use and as it’s wider than normal straighteners, it so fastidious my hair. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent produit C'en en effet un excellent produit conseillé vivement par ma coiffeuse qui utilise également vos produits. Quoi de mieux qu'un avis professionnel Le fait qu'il soit légèrement arrondi facilite le lissage et évite le côté "baguette " et rend le résultat naturel et une finition sans pareil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I brought these in addition to my thinner plated GHDs as my hair has got thicker & a bit longer in lockdown! They are amazing, glide through my hair so easily & straighten much quicker than the thinner version. Would definitely recommend even for shorter hair like mine Got a good discount as ordered directly from ghd and arrived within 24hrs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Très satisfaite! Excellente qualité! Après 7 ans d’utilisation d’un lisseur bas de gamme j’ai opté pour ce lisseur et je ne suis pas déçue! Le lissage est de bien meilleure qualité et je vois qu’il n’abîme pas mes cheveux :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but not sure about the price being worth it I personally don’t find it any easier when straightening my hair from my previous, less expensive straightener, however the outcome is different. My hair turns out so much more silky and stays straight for longer. Do recommend but not sure whether it’s worth the £150. Slightly overpriced but still a good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I purchased my original GHD wide plate straighteners 10 years ago and when they needed replacing I obviously thought this was my best option. However, I do feel that this pair are not as good quality as my old ones, they have no option for different temperatures and although they do straighten my hair I preferred my original pair. Shame really as I feel GHD offer good products at excellent prices.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor straightners Considering these are an expensive brand of straightners you’re just paying for the name the actual straightners them self are rubbish don’t do what they say. After reading some of the reviews before purchasing I was slightly hesitant but thought I’d give them a go and wish I never purchased they pull your hair out leaving your ends dry and brittle , worse straightners I have ever purchased I wouldn’t bother !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I had the old ones and loved them but they broke. I have found that you can only use a small bit of hair for curling with these straighteners.. I’ve always managed to get such a beautiful curl with the old ones.. but my hair just seems to slip through these... hope I’ll be able to take them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GHD Max Easy to use with fast heat. I have long fine dry coloured hair. Glides through the hair evenly right to the ends. Leaves hair with a sleek and shiny finish that you achieve from a salon.

I want straighteners for curly hair that will keep my hair straight. Are these the right ones?

The ghd V Gold Max styler has been designed to make even easier work of straightening thick or very curly hair with the larger plates on the ghd V gold max styler. This styler comes with all the heat and styling capabilities of the ghd gold classic styler, however this max size makes styling quicker and easier when you’ve an abundance of hair.

What's the best straightener for me

Asked by: Mero
The ghd V Gold Max styler would be perfect for the hair type described as it makes easy work out of styling thick and long hair. Alternatively we recommend the ghd platinum® styler as this is suitable for all hair types and does not compromise the condition of the hair. The styler features tri-zone® technology which allows the temperature to be a constant temperature of 185 degrees - the optimum styling temperature. For further information please follow
