Easy to use
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.
The best haistraightner ever
I have owned an OZhead hair straightener for the past two years and have convinced many of my friends how great they are. I was given the opportunity to buy a brand new Ozhead a month ago and wow what an offer. Better yet the new Oz head is even better than my old one and the amazing new vibrating feature works even better on my hair. I love it so much I'm buying my daughter one too for christmas. If you want to buy a hair straightener you can not go past the Ozhead for quality, value and yes it's Australian made.
4 years on & my oz head ThinkPink still rocks !
Back in 2009, I had a straightener I was using when my sister tried it and liked it and because I love my sister very much, I offered it to her.
Alas! What do I do now without a straightener ? I started researching ghds due to all the rave reviews and came across oz head (think pink) which appealed to me for 2 reasons:
1. An oz mom (who like me thought ghds were rather expensive and decided to research and come up with a product that was comparable but with a lower price tag)
2. The recommendations I read (it was still very new to the...market) So I took the plunge and purchased the oz head think pink in 2010 and as I type this, is still going strong in every aspect. Has not let me down even once. I have used it overseas with the same superior results.
Fantastic, will never buy another brand.
I bought a Think pink straightener a couple of years ago after my GHD lasted just over 12 months. Did some research & thought it was worth a try buying an Aussie product. I recently received an email from ozhead offering a whopping 65% discount if I purchase their brand new OzHead MKIII straightener with excellent upgrades, now has a temperature control, automatic shutoff & vibrating pads. Who does that! I am extremely happy with the new straightener & even has a 3 year warranty, my hair has never looked so straight & smooth. Thank you very much ozhead for a wonderful product at an affordable price.
A few weeks ago I woke up to discover that the hair straightener I have had for 2 years had stopped working. As I was 2 days away from leaving to go on holiday, I was desperate but also didn't want to just buy any random product. Being relatively new to Australia I had never heard of Oz Head but the reviews looked great. Impressive service! The parcel (Goody Box) arrived the very next day! It is great. Reminds me of my first GHD, where the straightener makes your hair soft and shiny. My second GHD barely got hot. So easy to use and the vibrating plates are pretty cool. I am planning on giving the additional mini styler to my mum in South Africa. I just know she is going to love it!
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 :)
Long lasting, great straightener
I bought my ThinkPink on line about 7 years ago. It is still going strong with my daughter and I using it. Got a heap mat when I bought it. Looking to buy a straighter for my daughter so we are not sharing anymore and she wants a GHD. Because her friends have one I think. Hopefully I can talk her around to a OzHead. So Happy.
Love these straightners!!!!!
So after reading everyone's positive reviews about ozhead straightners I decided to bite the bullet and try it for myself. My goody box arrived today, so excited to try them out straight away. I am totally amazed!! I have very thick wavy hair and curly underneath and just one stroke is enough to make my hair silky straight. I love ozhead, thank you for bringing out a product that actually works.
Inexpensive, vibrating plates ensure smooth straightening.
I have wavy hair & in damp weather it's prone to frizzyness. Within a few minutes using OzHead straightners, my hair is beautifully straight & extremely shiny.
I've had other brand named straightners which have actually burnt my hair & have caused my hair to break. OzHead straightners dont harm my hair & i don't need to use them every day unlike some others.
Overall I would rate OzHead as excellent & would definatly recommend to a friend.
Best ever straightener during my 29 Years of Professional Hairstyling.
After 29 years as a professional hair stylist this is truly the best ever hair straightener I have worked with.The vibrating teflon coated plates work brilliant with no hair snagging creating great curls and also straightens beautifully. So much better value than my old GHD.
Well made, heats up quickly, prompt delively, lovely stuffed present and great price backed with a 3 year warranty!!!
Very happy...Just buy it.
If I was to be really picky I would have preferred heat mat over stuffed toy.
Oz Head Hair straightener
I purchased the Oz Head Red straightener in July/August 2013. This straightener has the vibrating plate function and the tourmaline ceramic plates. I have been using straighteners since 2000 - and this one has by far been the best I own. I have GHD Mk 4 - which is pretty good. As a hair model for Toni and Guy, I purchased the GHD as it was recommended to me by my stylist, plus it was used in the salon. It is a good straightener no doubt. However the Oz saved me nearly $150!! And the vibrating plate runs through the hair much more smoothly. I do...not have to run the straightener through my hair copious times either - so less stress on the hair = healthy hair. And I do not need to repeat straightening the next day - do it once and pretty much lasts til the next wash. As a physically active professional, the ease and time-saving efficiency of this product is a huge bonus. I love the variable heat control as well. Aesthetically - it is quite attractive in the shiny metallic red. I recommend this product to all my friends and work colleagues. Reliable, costs less that $200 for the same effect as a $350+ straightener, good customer service, excellent hair outcomes
Amazing results! Bought two since we fight over one in our house. The holder that it comes with is great and very useful! The auto shut off after a certain amount of time is a good feature to have as 17 year olds need that ;) very happy with this product!
Auto shut off, good quality, reliable
Don't look any further!
After my Fudge hair straightener died I was convinced I would have to spend over $200 for a GHD, I started reading reviews of all types of hair straighteners, I was dizzy with the amount of choice! I read the reviews about Ozhead and decided to try an Aussie product, I ordered it on Saturday and when it hadn't arrived by Tuesday I emailed Ozhead, and got a response in less than a minute! no joke! it then showed up and included a soft toy for my daughter! and a nice carry pouch. I have dry, curly, coloured, waist length hair, I would normally bl...ow dry it straight then run the straightener through it, this time I had left it curly for a few days and ran the Ozhead through as soon as it arrived, it straightened it with no probs! the plates are a good size and it doesn't snag as you pull it through. If you're looking for a straightener and you can't choose, order this one! it's really good and the price isn't crazy. heats up quickly, lite and easy to use, doesn't snag the hair, does the job!
A fantastic Australian product. Beautiful presentation for the straightener as well as the mini, very elegant looking heat mat. Great quality straightener and feels light in your hand, ease of use and brilliant results. The serum has a gorgeous frangrance. World class customer service, OzHead is most considerate and professional company I have ever come across, a real pleasure to deal with and will definitely have my future businesses.
Great quality and price, fantastic results.
Excellent product combined with great customer service
It is a great product , does a better job than more expensive straighteners , very happy with the results and the long wires make it easy to manipulate around . Customer service is very prompt and helpful . Would definitely buy another one for family or as a gift.
Good results, cheaper than ghd , long wires
Awesome Aussie Straightener!!!
I received my Ozhead Straightener in my fave colour(Lime green) for Christmas, from my clever husband- & I LOVE it!!! THE BEST & AMAZING hair straightener EVER!!! Straightened my hair that afternoon...3 days later, my hair was still straight! Awesome product, almost 1/3 the price of the well known brand (with 3 letters). I was querying all the excellent reviews on here too...but now I have my own...the reviews are true. The only problem now, is, I have to fight to use my straightener, because my daughter uses it too :-) And as an added...bonus, I'm proud to say it's an Australian product. Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!! Love the price, the smoothness of the straightener in your hair & the fact that's it's Aussie. Nothing so far- love it!!!
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 purchased an ozhead back in March this year and I have never been happier. I am a student so replacing my GHD was not an option, however after reading some hairdresser reviews on the product and the money back guarantee, I thought I'd give it a shot. I am so happy I purchased an ozhead, not only is it a good price but it supports an Australian company!
Inexpensive, Reliable, Leaves your hair feel soft and silky
I'm very glad I ordered from ozhead. I am a student so purchasing something new like straighteners is something I really have to think about and research because I can't afford to waste money. I rely on reviews a lot and after seeing how highly rated the ozhead straighteners were I ordered the goody pack which includes the straightening iron, hair serum (yum), mini irons, heat mat, iron holder and a quite adorable bunny soft toy. The box arrived the morning after I ordered and I used it immediately. Features I love about the iron:
*long cord. ...
I've never owned a GHD, so cannot compare my purchase of the Ozhead straightener to one of these products. However, I bought one of the original Think Pink straighteners a few years back and got excellent use out of it. I recently purchased the newer version, and like it even better. It seems to be smoother & is easier to use with the swivel bit on the end making the cord move about more easily.
Delivery of the product was faster than anything else I've ever ordered online (placed my order one afternoon and it was delivered the next day, and ...
Phenomenal straightener, awesome price!
This straightener is AWESOME! It's super effective and leaves your hair soft and shiny! I've also got the mini straightener which is super lightweight and it heats up really quickly and works really well. I owned a GHD before and now that I own an OzHead straightener I am never going back!!!
Best straightener I've ever owned!!! Inexpensive, heats quickly and leaves hair silky and smooth
The tongs can get a little hot when the straightener has been left on for a while, but it's not a problem.
I love my OZ Head straighteners
I purchased my straighteners a couple of years ago and am couldn't be happier with them. Even the mini heats up quickly! The mini is so light and compact but it really works! I wouldn't attempt to straighten my whole head of hair with the mini but I'm sure it would be possible. It is perfect for taming unruly curls when I'm away.
I think the straighteners look very stylish and work better than any other brand I have tried.
OzHead straighteners :)
I LOVE the OzHead straighteners! I always used to swear by GHD's as my go-to hair appliance, but i was given the OzHead straighteners as a gift and i absolutely love them! They're easy to use and the vibrating plates really help when trying to do other styles such as curling, volume, up-dos etc.
I got my straightener pack for my birthday from my boyfriend, it was the black one with the mini straightener (not as impressed) and the heat pad (amazing and has a pocket to slip the straightener into), blowdrier (best i have ever tried) and the serum (super silky and smooth although can give an oily feel) however i noticed recently the wires in the straightener seem to have broken and it only works occasionally, i emailed ozhead and seemed to have no reply after several days, feeling irritated i then looked to see if there were any negative r...eviews, i read and saw that their emails can go to junk so i checked and sure enough it was there waiting! I read it and although i had lost my warranty and receipt they were happy to exchange. Brilliant straightener set and brilliant customer service! And great to give the money to an Australian company! Will be telling everyone! Excellent service, great product
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
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.
