Don’t rate it!
I have always bought GHD’s since they come out! Very disappointed in the quality of them now! They feel so cheap now! Doesn’t glide through my hair gets stuck when styling! Heats quickly but to me not hot enough I have thick hair and takes heaps to straighten! My ends have been damaged..

Always does the job PERFECTLY!
My hair is quite thick and fluffy with a little frizz, so it doesn't take me long to have it looking smooth and straight. It takes a minute to heat up by that time i have brushed and parted my hair so no time wasted. It does my hair so nicely and doesn't damage it at all, Takes around 10-15 minutes to do my hair which is the length of the middle of my back. I go to the hairdresser once every 6 months and they always compliment on how strong and healthy my hair looks and feels. This is my second original GHD straightener in the past 11 years. My last one lasted 8 years and I have had this one now for 3 years and use it once or twice a week, definitely great value.

Built to last!
I purchased my ghd original in 2010 and it is still going strong, I decided to buy a replacement in the exact same style, mostly just to treat myself, but honestly the original was absolutely fine - a little wear and tear on the outside but function was immaculate for 11 years and daily use.
Amazing. These are perfect for straightening, curling and natural waves.
I use it along with the heat protectant spray and my hair feels great & protected.
Worth the price point!

Always great products
I’ve been using GHDs personally and in my salon for 10 years and I love them. My one heats up in seconds. I can straighten my hair in less than 4 minutes and I’m very pleased with the job it does. It’s very easy to use and maintain which is important for me.

Excellent Product - Great Service
I had a GHD styler for 14 years, and then was gifted a new GHD not long after.
Sadly, this one was faulty. Lisa, from the customer service team was lovely to deal with and helped me with my warranty request - my GHD holds sentimental value for personal reasons but Lisa was polite, and a pleasure to deal with.
I will continue to use GHD's, for life!
Thank you Lisa, and GHD.

My curler broke into two parts， customer service is disappointing
I liked my curler, it's such a shame to go through this terrible experience with this brand. I only used this curler for 3 times, which I purchased in Feb 2020. I kept it in my drawer with my straightener and hairdryer. Last week, just before the second lockdown hit Melbourne, I wanted to use this curler so I could have a different style to go out with. That was when I discovered the thing that happened in the picture. For me, there are two possible reasons: I couldn't understand how this happened, maybe I was too rough with my hairdryer and it...hit my curler when I put it back. I reached out to the customer service, they said this is not covered by warranty and said I broke it. One girl on the phone also said she will let her supervisor call me back. First if you won't do it, don't promise it, this SUPERVISOR NEVER CALLED MY BACK. If you look at the picture, you'll realize how terrible your quality is! How could I ever break a curler? This never happened in my whole life. And what more disgusting is whatever you tell them, they have this bias on you: customers break things, and they are liars and greedy.

Ghd have gone downhill
I had a limited edition ghd for about 7 years and recently replaced it with a new one. I had to get it replaced under warranty because it wasn’t getting hot enough. They sent me another one, the customer service is great but this one is crap too. How can they have changed so much since my limited edition one. I wouldn’t recommend at all, you’d be better off buying a cheap Vidal sassoon one, they work about the same.

Good product but costly
It's a costly product.
It won't straighten your hair if its overly curled.
But it will help to maintain the straightness for few months once you get your hair done professionally.

I have been using GHD straighter since the day it came out, so it has been over 12 13 years, and I still use it to this very day, 2020.
Its durable and still works well.

12 years on and it’s still going strong!
I received this hair straightener in 2008 for my birthday and it’s still going strong 12 years on! It’s amazing. Admittedly it’s a bit slower than it used to be..But that is to be expected. Talk about getting your money’s worth! Probably time to upgrade it, but it’s held on so long it’s hard to part with it!
It's an original
Heats up in minimal time, gets very hot, too hot unfortunately. I wasn't accustomed to the GHD technology, and unfortunately fried the ends of my hair when initially using it. I've changed the way I use it but recommend anyone buying one of these second hand (which is what I did), reconsider.
They are too hot and will damage your hair if you don't know what you're doing. I have it on professional advice the new technology is very good.
OK - on my thick afro
Often have to use this product two times over to reach my desired texture. Not too fast - have to pass through hair slowly. Sometimes can overheat and let off steam
The best !!
The original is the best in this case! Quick and easy to use, heats ups so fast, doesn’t burn hair and has a great non sip handle which is great cause I have very long hair. Exactly what I needed

Hair looking FRESH
I received a GHD original IV styler for my birthday and honestly I couldn't live without it. Shes fast, smooth, efficient and everything you need in a straightener. Forever a GHD lover.

amazing on my thick curls
I love this GHD, I have thick ringlet curls and when I use this my hair stays straight for about 2 days!!! (Well by the second day it’s kinky but none the less still straight)
I feel it gets to a good heat and takes less time to straighten my high maintenance hair than normal cheaper alternatives take, I’m probably not the best example as if you compare me to someone with normal straight hair obviously mines gonna take 10x as long.
I don’t use it every day as it is quite time consuming, however I haven’t noticed any damage or negative affects on my hair..

Questions & Answers
When I turn my GHD original on it beeps and the led flashes. The straightener heats up. It only beeps once. The led continues flashing. Is this normal? No issues with the straightener just not sure if the led should continue flashing
My ghd IV styler all of a sudden wont turn on. Any ideas?
