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.

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.

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.

Perfect for my hair
With my type of hair, I’ve struggled to find the right straightener. Since getting this particular brand and model, I don’t have to worry about frizzy hair. Takes only seconds to warm up to temperature, can be adjusted to suit the style I want, and get ps the job done properly in a short amount of time.
I bought my ghd 4 years ago and it still to this day has not let me down. My hair is super annoying to the point where if I use different straighteners it starts to wave really quickly but i have NEVER had that problem with my ghd. It gives me perfectly sleek and silky hair and stays that way all day. I know alot of people say it's overrated and over priced but tbh its worth every cent. It heats up so fast and cools down real quick too. Seriously 100% recommend to my friends.

I got this straightener for christmas. It heats up really quickly and has adjustable heat settings as well as an on/off switch, so you don't have to switch it off at the wall socket the whole time. At first the blades did not meet, but then i realised you have to press them together quite tightly. I'm pleased with the way it glides over my hair without pulling it like my previous straightener did. It straightens very well. It cools down quickly too.
I would recommend this to everyone.
