Easy to use
Can't do without this
So pleased I brought this straightener. It's so quick and easy to use. I feel like I've walked out of a salon. Price was great too as there was 20% off for July. Delivery was quick and customer service exceptional. I'm even going to show it to my hairdresser at next week's appointment.
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.
So easy to use and heats up really fast. I get a perfectly smooth result every time.
Customer service was also very good and I loved the freebie they included.
Best hair straightener i've had
I really cant tell you enough how happy I am with this product! Definitely better than my old GHD. Straightening is really easy to use with ut and ditto curling (admittedly, i dont curl very often). Price is very reasonable too.
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.
So happy to have taken the dive and purchased
So glad I decided to come here and read some reviews before purchasing. I was going to replace my 8 year old GHD with another GHD, but was horrified by all the recent bad reviews and issues people were having. Had never heard of OzHead before but decided to look further since it is an Australian small business. So happy with this straightner. I got a 10% discount, free travel pouch and heat proof mat, and it was in the post and at my door within 2 days. The cord is super long so don't have to worry about having a mirror near a power point anymo...re. It heats up really quickly and has huge temperature range. I didn't get how to use the vibration setting for a while (have to clamp down quite firmly), but have found it does help the hair move through the plates smoothly. So happy with this product! Support a local business, save some serious $$, and feel secure knowing they offer a 3 year warranty.
Incredible product, well done Ozhead!
After reading an extraordinary list of reviews (something to be proud of!) I purchased an Ozhead Straightener quite spontaneously! My GHD had died that morning and I was very upset after having it for 7 years. I assumed I would just always have a GHD. I spent the good part of my day researching and trawling the shops for a straightener which was of superior quality, but also affordable. I wasn't keen on the price tag of my faithful GHD but I also didn't think I could skimp on quality.
I stumbled across the Ozhead reviews and it didn't take ...long to convince me... Ozhead has come above and beyond my expectations. Brilliant customer service when I called, fast courier delivery for a low rate (from NSW to VIC in 3 days) and a fantastic product. Love the vibrating technology and family/friends noticed the difference from the first day that I was using my new straightener, commenting that my hair seemed straighter and healthier. Best of all, my money was going towards an Aussie Family who have done a spectacular job for their market. Wouldn't hesitate to recommended this brand to anyone.
The reviews are right - it's the best hair straightener I've ever had.
This hair straightener keeps my hair straight for days - something I've never managed in 64 years.
Very easy to use - heats up really quickly and has variable temperature control.
The purchased this to replace my old GHD and a new iCloud mini that i have just purchased and was very disappointed in and I'm very happy I bit the bullet and did. The reviews here are spot on and the reviews are the reason I decided to give this a go.
The company are a pleasure to deal with. Their shipping is super fast. Can't fault them. They even included...some of their serum. With or without the hair serum this straightener leaves my hair really soft and straight. Without serum I can get three days of straight hair. With it, I don't know how long I would actually get, I tried over the long weekend and it remained perfect for 4 days. Amazing for me. I have always had to wash my hair every day. I love it. Highly recommend the product and the company.
Unbelievably good. Great product minus the exorbitant price tag
The reviews on here for the Ozhead straighteners are good. Almost too good. I was wondering whether they were real . Well let me tell you ..... they are for real ! This company is fabulous, customer service is A+ . The straightener is brilliant. Super light compared to my old ghd and just glides through my heavily bleached blonde hair. No snagging , no dryness (so weird) which is something my old ghd was very prone to do. I honestly wasn't expecting much difference in how my hair would actually feel using my Ozhead compared to my ghd but there...really is a marked difference. The serum that was included with my purchase is brilliant too. I have very fine hair (lots of it) and most serums are greasy and Make my hair limp but this stuff is so good. Honestly I cannot fault Ozhead at all and I encourage anyone who may be considering one of those $300 plus straighteners to think again. With the 14 day guarantee and a fabulous 3 year warranty it's a no brainer really. Well done Ozhead. I'm spreading the word !
Cant beleive how good they are & so affordable!
I just got my Ozhead straightener last night in the post & I love it! I have been a loyal ghd user ever since straighteners came out but I decided to do some research & found ozhead. The price & reviews blew me away, its the best straightener I've used, it straightens so fast & keeps my hair straight even after a nights sleep! I wish I had come across them earlier! I wont ever be buying another ghd or straightener that costs $300! Which is a ridiculous amount of money. Ozhead are an Aussie company too which is an extra bonus! Thank you Ozhead & for the cool freebies! You wouldn't get that from another big company!
Fantastic product and fantastic service!
I have just purchased and received my 2nd Ozhead straightener and my first Ozhead hairdryer and I am so happy. My Ozhead straightener has worked better than any I have previously tried including GHD and Silver Bullet and is still going strong after 6 years! I have been so happy with it that when I saw the deal on Ozhead hair dryers & straightener I wanted one. The straightener heats up quickly, has varying heat settings and I use it everyday to straighten my grey hair which never breaks the ends or leaves it frizzy. My daughter has natural ringlets and uses the hair serum which is amazing on its own. Highly recommend this company and their products. Huge thanks to Dave for being so helpful and processing my order so quickly.
Best straightener I have ever used!!!!
I can't praise this product and the customer service they have provided enough!!!
Firstly this straightener is by far the best on the market and at a affordable price. Secondly there was a hiccup with delivery (not Oz head's fault) and they went out of their way to rectify it for me. Outstanding product, outstanding services!!!!
Thanks so much x
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.
Amazing service the best I have ever had from any company
My GHD's died after 15 years of great service but I was warned that the quality is not the same anymore so I started to do some research and found amazing reviews about ozhead, some people questioned the reviews because they were so good but I decided to take a chance, fully money back if not happy and 3 year warranty and all at an amazing price, no I don't work for the company I had not even heard of them a few weeks ago. I am thrilled with my straighteners they work really well on my thick hair, I had a few problems with delivery and the co...mpany were brilliant with their support and communication afterwards. The straighteners heat up really quickly they are lightweight and really easy to use, they don't snag my hair there is also a nice long lead. I am a very happy customer!
AUSSIE COMPANY...CAN'T GET MUCH BETTER!!
I've had my Oz Head Straightener for a few weeks now. I owned a ghd previously, and when it died, I decided to try another brand, I looked up many sites, and came across OzHead, I was a little sceptical at first about the change from ghd, however I'm very impressed and glad I made the change. It glides through my hair beautifully,and doesn't snag my hair which the ghd did, and I love the vibrating mechanism. Also I like the fact that this product has a 3year replacement warranty, The service was excellent from start to finish, and I'm looking forward to many years use from this amazing product. Thanks OZHEAD...
Great Product from an Aussie company with amazing customer service
I purchased this straightener after reading all the awesome reviews - and am suitably impressed. It heats up quickly, maintains heat, glides over the hair and leaves my hair straight and silky like a salon finish.
Not only that, the service I received from the company was amazing. There was an issue with the courier delivering, they chased up relentlessly and then sent me a replacement, along with a free hair dryer and other products, for the hassle! Thanks again OzHead my hair is so much happier!!
Thanks so much for such amazing delivery service....it was at my door the next day and in time to make sure my hair looked great for the family photo shoot!! The product is really great, heats up quickly and is easy to use. Thanks so much for the added extras too...what a great Aussie company!
Thank you so much for the awesome straighteners (and all the goodies!). I used the straighteners yesterday, they are great! Super quick, smooth..such a difference with the vibrating pads and my hair frizzes easily so it would take a few goes to get it smooth with the old straighteners. I found they heat quickly, got to get used to temperature control. Thanks for creating a great product..and nice to be able to support a local business.
I'm not going to lie, I was nervous to take a chance on this straightener. I stumbled upon this brand whilst doing a product review search for a new straightener. I've had the same GHD for at least 8 years now and it's been good to me (although not good for USA holidays), so I was just going to purchase a new GHD, until I read a few bad reviews. The reviews for the OzHead ThinkPink seemed almost too good to be true but as I'd seen a couple of magazine articles, I figured they must be legit. I took a chance because of the great reviews on the pr...oduct itself, but mostly I wanted to give an Australian company who prides themselves on their customer service a go. I was not disappointed. I purchased a 2-pack and went halves with a friend - what a great option. Not only did we both save money but OzHead threw in some awesome freebies. The purple is quite pretty and will stand out in the depths of my overnight bag. So before I've even turned the straightener on, they've got 3 ticks! The instructions say that the flashing light will stay on once heated up, however I found the straightener continued to heat up a bit beyond this point to a heat that rivals my old GHD (that straight-hair-burns-your-neck type hot), so my initial concern that it wasn't as hot as I'd hoped was alleviated - still took less than 1 minute to reach peak heat. I tried the vibrating function - to be honest, I couldn't really tell the difference, but I haven't experimented enough yet. I've tried waves and they've stayed in even without hairspray/styler. I've never been motivated to write product reviews before this experience. My relief, coupled with the urge to reward this small company prompted me to write this one. Thank-you OzHead for the freebies and an excellent product that I really didn't need to worry about in the end!
Wow! SO..What a great straightener! I'm a Former GHD owner of 8 years and was so upset when it finally died, so i started looking up reviews online and found Ozhead Thinkpink, i must admit i was a little septical at first but my partner is also a small business owner and we always try to give small businesses a go, sometimes i have been sadly let down, HOWEVER this is NOT the case here, having 3 kids 4 and under i don't have the time to really fuss with my hair but i do like to straighten my hair and found this a dream to use, its lightweight, ...with a swivel cord, heats up quickly and straightens poker straight and on the first go, oh and it doesn't snag hair like my old one did towards the end...All up a great buy, give it a go, support a small business, you wont be disappointed :)
OMG - GHD, Who are they?
All I can say is WOW. My daughter (15) wanted her own straighteners for Xmas as she was using my GHD's. I spent weeks reviewing different brands and once I read all the great reviews about Ozhead I continued to research them. They have a great warranty and appeared that they honour it without question plus the price was fantastic compared to others. I ended up buying them and the mini one and some other items and what a great bargain it was. When I opened the box I thought they had my order wrong but no, just for buying Australian they had incl...uded some little gifts which was awesome and so nice of them. Then the big test, how did they work? I did my daughters hair which is very sun bleached as she is a lifesaver and pool swimmer so she has a lot of sun and water damage. Whenever we have straightened it with the GHD's it went very lifeless and brittle looking but not anymore I couldn't believe it. Not only did it not leave lines if you left it even a second too long but it was super straight but had body and looked like healthy hair, it was fantastic, I couldn't believe it. So next was my hair, bleached for years and years and I get lots of flyways when I straighten but not with the Ozhead ones, even I looked like my hair was healthy and the serum they sell helps make it look even better. Your hair moves, bounces it's amazing that's all I can say. I have recommended them to my hairdresser and she tried them and said when her others die she will be buying these, as is my neighbour. I can't stop raving about them. When my GHD goes I will definitely be buying these and I love that we are supporting an Australian company.
Love this straightener!
Heats up super quick with no noticeable heat loss. I have very thick, long, course wavy hair and it went through my hair with ease. The casing is light but I'm happy that it is, it takes a while to do hair. I have previously owned a ghd which finally died and was looking for a cheap replacement. I wasted my money on two department store brands and then found ozhead online. So glad I did! It was reasonably priced and definitely a genuine competitor to the big, high end brands on the market. Would recommend over and over.
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!

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.
