Started well ended badly

Helios hair dryer was great never really had a problem other than the plug getting hot, until on low heat and low setting sparks started to come out singed my hair and burnt my head the hair dryer did cut off but was smoking and burning smell. It’s been a scary experience and very painful one. Will be sending the item back but wanting refund not a replacement due to what’s happened. Show details

Don't bother... faulty and dangerous products with zero support

My GHD dryer exploded in my face, burned some hair and skin. I've received zero response from GHD customer service or head office. They don't care. My GHD straightener also is also poor quality. Honestly one of the most overhyped haircare brands out there. So many better companies to buy from who will actually respond when there's an issue.

Not great

The nozzle continuously falls off, it it moves around and I have to constantly stop to adjust it. Very frustrating. It will have to go in a drawer and I’m buying a different brand. Show details

Do Not Purchase This Hairdryer

ghd makes great hairstraighters, and they should stick with this. This hairdryer tarnishes their brand. It gets too hot and the nozzle drops off constantly. When I contacted ghd to request a replacement nozzle, I was told that I would need to purchase one. Seriously. Show details

Terrible hair dryer, its my 2nd dryer and they both have blown up in less than 2 years

I purchased a dryer for over $400 and it sparked and blew up in my hand after less than 2 years. I contacted GHD & they sent me another one but told me that i would not have a warranty on the new one. The one they sent had a not for resale sticker on it... and sure enough just over a year later this one blew up. I have contacted GHD another time to explain and they said its not under warranty.
There are many other better dryers on the market for half the cost. If they lasted more than a few years they would be ok but they dont. Show details

Good hair dryer

I use this hair dryer and it dries my hair without any fuss. It has a very long chord which is great and would be very useful for hair dressers and stylists.
It is a little heavy but I can manage.
Pros:
Quick drying
Different settings, including cool setting
Expensive
Cons:
Is a little loud
Is a little heavy

The best hairdryer I’ve ever owned

I love this hairdryer! Definitely lives up to the GHD reputation of being a reliable and exclusive product. I use it daily without any issues. Relatively quiet. Good heat modes. Dries my hair within minutes - literally! I love the sleek look and black colour too! Recommend to anyone seeking a new hairdryer!

Don't believe the hype

Wouldn't recommend. The spinning nozzle makes it very hard work to achieve a smooth finish. According to GHD this isn't a fault ! Wouldn't recommend to anyone. Much cheaper and better products on the market. Show details

Frustrating to use due to faulty nozzle

Usually love GHD products but unfortunately this one is very difficult to use as the nozzle continuously spins when trying to blow dry. Looks like a design fault from many other reviews. Would really like to know how this can be remedied.  Show details

I’ve just bought the ghd air and wandering if it’s normal to feel air on the handle?

My concentrator nozzle has broken and will not stay on. Where can I buy a replacement? Searched everywhere, but can not find one. Only one found and incorrectly purchased is the new Helios version which is inconveniently incompatible. Anyone not using there's and would like to sell?

I’ve attached the nozzle to my brand new GHD air hairdryer, clicked it but it spins around rather than staying in place. This makes it very frustrating to use while trying to style my hair.
