Not as good as hoped
I purchased 1 of these as a friend recommended it. I've used it a number of times now and am not impressed at all so will be going back to my GHD as this is much better
My next straightener will be a GHD.
I have used Ozhead for about 9 years and I’m sad to say the product and the service have both gone downhill! All the straighteners I have purchased since my first review on here in September 2013 have not outlasted the warranty and have had to be replaced.
Again I purchased 2 new Red straighteners in August last year (2018) because they initially were a quality item and are half the price of a decent GHD. I was hopeful that any updated straighteners would have had the previous issues identified and resolve...d. I gave one to my daughter and one for me. I don’t use them daily, perhaps once or twice a week to fully straighten my curly hair. In December the cord connection to the straightener became faulty and stopped working. I emailed Ozhead and explained the issue and they said to return my straightener and once they had received it they would send a replacement to me.
Purchased in August 2018 at Ozhead website for $205.00.
Silky smooth hair
Great little hair straightener here I love this because it heats up in seconds and it is so great on the hair feels like heaven great budget for the price amazing.
Very good but need to go over a couple of times
Heats quick, still going strong after 12 months. I do find if i straighten and walk away it fluffs up within about 30 minutes, but after doing it a second time very quickly it then stays straight all day. Also works well, if i blow dry my hair first with a styling brush and then straighten it. I dont use the vibrate option - have never seen that it makes a difference. I like the peace of mind of a 3 year warranty.
Didn't work for us
My daughter wanted an expensive hair straightener for a change from the cheaper ones we had used in the past. We decided on the OzHead after seeing the great reviews here. Unfortunately the product did not heat up adequately, and consequently did not straighten hair. I have very thin, fine hair and my daughter has medium thickness. It did not work for either of us. When I contact customer support, I was simply told to return it, at my own cost. That is not great customer service. Luckily I paid with Paypal, and so was able to claim the return s...hipping cost via Paypal's Refunded Returns service. If you are planning on buying this product, please use Paypal unless you are prepared to pay for return shipping in case you have any issues or future warranty claims.
Works perfectly! I got mine a month ago and is still working great, I think it will last me quite a while... Heats up really quickly and makes my hair shiny and smooth!
Hair gets caught and is not straightening well
Hi, I received my straighteners a few weeks ago and have used it a few times, I find my hair gets caught in the edge of the plate and it doesn't straighten overly well. I have fine curly hair and dry it off before straightening. I also find it is not overly hot, My 10 year old GHD still is working better (and I am in no way a GHD only person). I am wondering if it has a fault. I tried emailing through the website but it wouldn't allow me too.
Cant live without this!
This is honestly one of the best hair straighter i have ever used! The hair dressers recommended me this product and it is honestly not disappointing. It was super easy to use and it heats up quite quickly. It worked amazing as my hair is always really wavey.
Not so Great
Bought this after reading positive reviews. Unfortunately for me, it hasn't been very good. My GHD, which my daughter now uses all the time, is far better. The OzHead takes longer to straighten my hair, the straightener becomes so hot it easily burns your fingers and ears and I have no idea what the vibration is supposed to achieve it didn't do a thing for me. In comparison when I use my GHD my hair is shinier and smoother and it doesn't become so extremely hot on the outside. On the positive side, they did send my out a free one after sending me the incorrect colour ordered, which was unexpected and very nice.
Good straightener for the price
I bought the Ozhead because the reputation of the GHD was going down after they switched manufacturers. This is a great alternative, although sometimes I feel like it needs tiny sections of hair to really straighten well. Still, for the price it's a great straightener.
Very easy to use this product, I am extremely happy with the results. It heats up quickly and it was not too expensive. I ended up buying the same one as a gift because I am so happ[y with it.
Very happy with it
I owned this OzHead MKIII for a month, it is really good one, better than others I used before. Can easily use and straight your hair very quickly. Loving it.
Not hot enough for my hair
17.5.17 Unfortunately this straightener doesn't do a good job on my hair even at the top temperature and using tiny sections of hair. I used the serum they sent but with this straightener my hair is all plumped out again the next day.
I ordered it on 25.4.17 but it didn't arrive for about 10 working days. I have left a message on the 1800 694 323 number which went to the message bank of someone named Dave.
Would repeat without a doubt!
For two years I have been using this article practically every day and I can say that I am delighted. It heats up in a few seconds, my hair slips very well and with an average temperature it works perfectly.
Would repeat without a doubt!

Finally a decent hair straightener!
Im in love with my Ozhead hair straightener! It's the best purchase i've made in awhile and have recommended it to all my friends.
Love my think pink!!!
I bought my think pink hair straightener 4 years ago and it is still great. Customer service is fantastic.Just bought the MKIII , going to give my old one to my daughter.Thx gor the great deal :)
My old GHD was better!
Received this Ozhead straightener as a gift a couple months back. Was looking forward to using it as my old GHD eventually broke after several years. Well what a disappointment :( it doesn't straighten as well as my old GHD, and secondly the vibrating plates stop working every time I use it :( really disappointed with this straightener, I'd rather go back and use a GHD anyday!
Doesn's straighten as well as my old GHD, vibrating plates stop working.
I've used many straighteners & this was as another reviewer stated, clunky & the plates didnt float right. I've had mine just over 2 years & a plate finally disconnected. I'm back to plain old Remmington, $50 & works as well. It has a 3 year service warranty which I'llI try (only broke this week) but if it costs money I'll have to consider if its worth it 9postage). will let you know about the service side.
Heated quick, long warranty, very pretty box
Cord too long, not a great plate fixture, no auto cut off, expensive
A blip in an otherwise amazing product
Was super excited to receive my OzHead in the mail. It arrived on the promised day, which is a real plus! The superb customer service is also worth a mention. Really impressed!
Opened the box right away to try it out. Happy to say that it heated up quickly and does its job straightening the hair well.
Unfortunately, a screw where the temperature dial is dropped out on the same use. Just a screw and no biggie right? Except that because the straightener could not be opened completely, it's close to impossible to screw it back on. The scr...
Good product bad service
I bought the ozhead goody pack for my mum for her birthday. After reading the reviews I knew this would be the best product and thought if anything happened I would at least get good service. When my mum received the package she was amazed how good the straightener was compared to the old ghd she had. When I called her to ask about the product I asked what she got in the pack. I had ordered the goody pack as it had the large straightener, mini straightener, serum and heat pad.
She told me she never received the mini straightener. So I immed...iately emailed the admin address I had, it was a Sunday night so didn't expect to hear back straight away. It got to Wednesday night and I still hadn't heard anything so I email a personal address that was on my receipt. That was 5 days ago and I still haven't heard anything. I consider this service to be unacceptable when I have been charged for something I didn't recieve! Good straightener, works well Bad service! Don't expect to hear from them if something is wrong with your order.
Questions & Answers
I had a Muster straightener 20 years ago which I loved and replaced with a GHD when my sister took the Muster when she moved out. It was back in 2005 and GHDs were just as good (if not better) than the Muster. When the GHD died about 7 years ago, GHDs were not made the same and I have just been buying cheap ones. I am on the search for the 'holy grail' straightener that achieves results like the original Muster and GHDs. Does anyone have experience using these classic ones and can provide some feedback on what they have found available now that is similar? Thanks in advance! :)
Hi. I haven't been seen any reviews as to how this goes with curling hair. Does anyone have any feedback regarding this?
i have seen hair dresser use it to curl hair.
also the customer service says you can do it.
i have tried curling it myself. need some experience to do so. Especially for the back of the hair if doing it yourself.
but the answer to your question is YES it can curl hair.
Hi. I'm thinking of purchasing your product for my daughters, ages 11 & 12. The younger one has really curly, ringlet type hair and the older one has dead straight hair. My hairdresser told me that a hair straightener should be able to straighten and curl hair. Is this correct? Thank you.
I have gone from natural curly hair to smooth straight hair and loving it, great product and so handy to have at home saves you money as you can do it at home,
Hey Anita, Yes your hairdresser is absolutely correct :-) You can curl and straighten with the OzHead straightener very easily. Kind regards.
