Amazing straightener for thick hair
I have long, thick, curly and frizzy hair so bought the Cloud Nine Wide Iron hoping to tame my hair. It it honestly amazing and produces such a sleek finish which I am definitely not used to. My hair tends to revert back to a slight frizzy wave after a few hours, but with the Wide Iron it keeps the frizz and curl at bay.
Very dissapointed hairdresser!
Quite upsetting got it as a gift for my birthday and it literally blew up In my ear!
No word of a lie!
I still have my green ghd from when I started my career, 13 years it's lasted!

Cloud Nine straightener
The cloud nine straighteners has a lot to be desired, this is my fourth and after two years there is always something wrong with them, terrible product, waste of money spending $1320 on 4 straighteners is ridiculous
Purchased in November 2017 at on line Cloud Nine for A$330.00.
Curly hair be gone
Love these straighteners , I have thick curly hair past my shoulders and use to struggle with my VS straighteners to get my hair done in less than 45 minutes with a temp of 180+ , with my new ( now 6 months old ) Clouds it takes me 30 minutes at 150 degrees and my hair is straight , shiny and amazing .. they give me a salon look but all done in the comfort of my bathroom in my slippers with a coffee at hand , highly recommend to any lady with unruly think curly hair

Amazing for thick island hair! Must have, stays straight all day all night through humid weather! Worth every penny. The plates are wide enough to make straightning the hair fast. Forget about ghd
Excellent! Amazing! Perfect!
I love this product! It is absolutely amazing! Compared to a lot of other straighteners my friends, family and I all go back to using my cloud nine original wide iron because it of the heat levels, the comfort in your hands, the width and quality making it easy as you dont need to go over your hair numerous time to get a straight price of hair! With this product your hair will be dead straight and shiny rather than a bit straight with frizz like others I have tried in the past. This flat iron by far is my favourite and I would recommend any day of the year!

I have so much hair down to my butt and super frizzy - This straightener sorts me out in minutes and has lasted years! Highly recommend - love the smooth plates never gets caught like my old straightener
Purchased in January 2016 for A$150.00.
Heats up fast and doesn’t have a smell like cheap straighteners, takes me half the time to straighten my thick hair over other brands, easy to use, my hair stays silky and straight for hours.
Love this straightener
My faithful wide iron has finally broken after 6 years of service although in upset the casing cracked I'm already planning to replace them with the exact model. Love love love it.

Awesome Hair Straightener
Very quick in heating up, has multiple options in terms of degrees and it probably takes me less than 5 minutes to quickly straighten out the fuzzy hair and i have a lot of hair and it is thick. I use the hair straightener daily and my hair doesn't get dry like my old silver bullet

Love this hair iron! The adjustable heat setting are awesome and i am able to style my thick, long hair with ease. Used for 2.5 years now and still in perfect working condition.

Works like a charm
Super satisfied with how long it takes for the straightening, only about 20 mins for perfect hair, where it used to be around 1 hr.
The heat it reaches is quite high, but its is controllable unlike GHD. You can control how much you want to burn your hair.
It is easy to use, positive effects on my hair because I don't have to keep going over and over it again.
If you have dark thick hair it is perfect for you.
I have owned the Cloud Nine wide iron for a while now and am very happy with the product. I have very long hair that is quite volumous and I find the product easy to use. It heats up very quickly and is relatively quick in straightening the hair. I rarely have to go over the same area more than once. Would definitely recommend for those with long or thick hair.

- Super quick takes 15 min to do my long hair where ghd (old one) took 30 min +
- Adjustable temp so can do max 250 degrees
- Have seen no more damage to my hair than the GHD
- Love it and highly recommend
Questions & Answers
my cloud 9 hair straightners just keep beeping fast and not heating up what it the problem?
How long have you had the straightener? I have not had that problem with mine I turn it on and press the button to make sure the green light goes to the top and then it beeps that it is ready! I would take it back to where you bought it and see if it still under warranty! I am sorry I cannot be more helpful
How long will the cloud nine keep for me
Not sure. I've had mine for nearly a year now and it has not skipped a beat. Still very happy. Make sure to buy a heat spray for your hair though as I have found that it can dry your hair out a little. Hope this helped :-)
All flat irons will dry your hair out but a lot less than blow drying I have been straightening my hair for 40years and have purchased a Cloud 9 and so far this has been the best product I have used and it makes my hair feel incredibly soft and silky but I also use very good quality hair straightening products for John Freida all their products work so well with the straightener! Hope this help you!
My Cloud 9 only lasted 2 years which was disappointing, especially as I paid $300. I am not a heavy user either, I sometimes go 1-2 months without straightening. At first it worked really well, made my thick curls dead straight and shiney. One day I went to use it, plugged it in and it started constantly beeping and flashing.
However, I have a theory that all straighteners have a max life span of 2-3 years, conviniently just after the warranty has finished. In the past, I've had 2 GHDs and both died after the same time frame. I bought a cheaper branded straightner (Diva) and that also didn't last.
In my opinion, it works well just be prepared to buy a new one in 2 or so years.
