I've used my GHDs for years, originally bought in the UK and now living in the US I just had the plug changed to fit the US standard.

My hair is naturally curly/wavy and I am extremely prone to frizzing. I use my GHDs to straighten and/or curl my hair.

I've tried other brands over the years but never felt like the others managed my hair quite as well as GHD, and my hair ends up getting fluffy and unmanageable after a while with others.

I don't like to apply too much heat to my hair, so I style after washing and I don't really need to apply heat again until my next wash as my hair keeps with my trust GHD!

i used to have a 20 dollar remington straightener which only burned and damaged my medium length curly hair. when i bought this straightener, i was amazed at how perfect it was. it heated up within 10 seconds and made my hair look perfectly straight. it doesn't look damaged or burnt or whatever and my hair looks perfect all day even if it's humid. it feels soft and looks shiny and healthy. i purchased this in March 2012 and it worked perfectly up until September 2016 when it wouldn't turn on anymore. Worth the money, especially considering it lasted 4 years.

I was hesitant to buy this product because of its price over 6 years ago. I had only used cheap drug store flat irons until then. I was blown away by the results after using it just once. This was worth every penny and some. I'm not sure what exactly the technology is or how it works, I just know that only after using this iron was my hair resistant to any form of humidity when straight. It's never burned my hair nor caused any visible damage even when ironing regularly. After 6 years my iron is still going strong and providing the same excellent results.

This is the greatest flat iron I have ever used! I first came across ghd at my hairdresser's salon. I knew if he used it, it had to be good. I'm so glad I bought it! Though I had a little sticker shock when I saw the price, I bit the bullet and got it anyway. It works great and heats up so quickly! I also love that it goes to a sleep mode if it hasn't been used in a while (I'm really bad about forgetting to turn it off!) Great product for a good hair day :)

I cannot say enough good things about GHD tools. I tell every single person I know about this straightener. It is so amazing. Not only does it heat up also instantly but it creates a smooth straight style on my naturally wavy hair with very little effort. And the best part about GHD is how long their tools last. I have had this straightener for six years, have taken it to multiple different counties and have never had a single issue with it.

"Love this hair straightener! I've used a cheap one before and you definitely get what you pay for. A Chi is so worth the price because it'll save your hair and it works wonderfully! I have thick wavy hair and it does a great job straightening my hair. It takes much less time to straighten my hair then with other brands. I would absolutely recommend this straightener for all hair types. Worth every penny! "

I love this straightener! I have used this for years and cannot live without it. My hair is wavy and I use this every morning to straighten and de-frizz my hair. I have also used it to curl my hair. Both styles last throughout the day. I use this almost everyday with a heat protectant and have noticed little damage to my hair. I have used several other straighteners and this one is by far my favorite!

Best flat iron in the market. Very even heat, great plates. Has timer to cut off when not in use. A little cooler than other irons to enable multiple passes with less damage to hair. I've been using mine for about 2-3 years and it still works as great as the day I bought it. Easy to clean, fits hand nicely, and leaves hair so smooth. Even my hair dresser uses a ghd.

My mom has had this flat iron for decades and although she finds it to be a great flat iron I find that it pulls at my hair a little too much. How ever the 2" ghd flat irons I find to be much better quality. However if you're looking for a flat iron that you are guaranteed to get your money's worth this would be a good choice because it does last a life time

I've always wanted to try this straightener! I have wavy-ish hair, and it did the trick perfectly. I went to my friend's house and she had it and I just fell in love with it. She told me that it's pretty pricey and I have seen the price, but I think I'm going to decide to splurge on it. My friend swears by it and it worked awesomely for me.

Has anyone had problems with a GHD from the UK not quite working exactly in the US? It says it runs on both voltages but I find mine sometimes beeps, as if it is trying to get to the full level of heat but can't completely due to the lower voltage. It may just be as my iron is about eight years old now.
