Short circuited, very dangerous
Started off working ok (which is why I didn't give it 1 star), but out of the blue it exploded in my teenage daughter's hand. It was plugged in and as it was lifted there was a large flash and a bang. Very scary. It was only a lightly used hair straightener and definitely not used to the point that the electronics could have been worn out. Even then, it shouldn't explode like that! It was well cared for. This happened not long after the warranty ran out (of course). Really disappointed given the price.

Best iron ever!!
I had used ghd products for years and recently switched to Silver Bullet and it’s the best decision ever.
It heats up so quickly and glides smoothly through my hair. The ghd used to stick, but this one is very smooth. My hair stays straight for days! Excellent product
Purchased in May 2020 at Oz Hair & Beauty for $200.00.
- 230 Titanium
I always had used ghd before , my last one my husband stepped on it accidentally and broke it , so it was time to get a new one! I didn’t like the new ghd and had read so many good reviews about this straightener that I decided to get it and OMG its the best straightener ever! I have it in the not too wide heads , so its perfect for creating waves and perfect for dead straight hair!! And it comes with so many accessories! I have dark thick curly hair ( middle eastern background ). It gets warm quick and it has different settings for different ...hair types which is great so if you use it frequently you can reduce the heat so your hair stays healthy! And usually i would have to go through a strand of hair a couple of times,, but with this one max two times is enough ! It is amazing and worth every penny spend

SB has converted me from GHDs
Needed a straightener that went to 230’ to do keratin smoothing treatments as GHD do not go that high.
I feel GHD has gone off the boil, there’s are brilliant!

0-230 in seconds!
Wasn’t sure about these straighteners at first as the Titanium plates are far different to the ceramic plates we have been used to ... But I am loving these straighteners now!
Purchased in October 2019 for $150.00.
Im a professional Hairdresser & ive had my Silver Bullet for over 5years now. It heats up quickly, easy to use and works perfectly. I've have had no problems at all.
Good for thick coarse hair
This straightener heats up in about 20seconds to 210C. Smoothens hair well and as it’s light weight it’s very easy to curl the hair. As it has titanium plates it glides smooth without any tugging or pulling.
The only reason why I haven’t given it a 5 star rating is because it didn’t wow me for the price I paid for it. I have another titanium straightener which I purchased for a lesser price and it has the same effect. When I set the temperature to 230C it didn’t really fasten the straightening process.
I like it but if I compare with other titanium straighteners it does not have any added benefits considering the extra price.
Purchased in April 2019 at Hairhouse Warehouse Online store for $200.00.
BEWARE: read this BEFORE buying a silver bullet hair straightener. Terrible product
I bought 2 of these, one for myself and one for my daughter in Oct 2018. They worked for about 2 months then started faulting. they BOTH had times were they did not heat up at all, or heat up a little bit but useless to be of any good, and then sometimes heated up perfectly. They are completely unreliable and the fact that TWO of them started doing this over time....yet still only 5 months old shows up that the product is bad. I will NEVER ever be wasting my money on a Silver bullet hair straightener again. Very Very unreliable and constantly lets you down right when you desperately needed it to work.
Purchased in October 2018 at Sydney Hair Salon for $200.00.
The straightener works well for about 2-3 months and then it started to become rusty and dirt started to build up in the ceremic surface. It works great for the price but however it can be better
Purchased in December 2018 at Half Price Shutters WA for $29.99.
Not happy with purchase
After reading reviews I was exciting to get the silver bullet 230 titanium. But I'm so disappointed and even called the store where I purchased to get an exchange. It catches my hair doesn't leave a nice shine like previous straighteners have. My hair appears to be more damage from using it and I've had to start using Olaplex alot more on my hair.
Awesome product - no regrets!
Purchase this iron! The heat levels are great because you can customize the level to the thickness of your hair. It's narrow enough that you can get the strands from the root and not have to deal with the crease an iron can make in your hair if you start further down. This iron does not pull my hair out at all and really works. I was shocked for the price that this iron would be so great but I read the reviews and I agree with them all. It really was a great purchase. I have naturally wavy to curly hair that's fine in texture, and I straightened my hair when we were on vacation in the heat and humidity in St. Thomas and it worked great!
Best hair straightener ever!!!
and I still don't like doing my hair. But, I have two daughters with thick course hair, this straightener has worked magic on their strands. This cuts hair time in half. Instead of blow drying after a wash, I let their hair air dry overnight.
This hair straightener is amazing, I have tried many brands in the past until I was recommended onto this product. It heats up super quickly and straightens my thick hair in just minutes. My hair is undamaged from this straightener I absolutely love it.
I’m onto my third silver bullet since April 2018, if it’s not pulling my hair out at the root, or snapping it off, it’s not even turning on. To think I got rid of my GHD for this. I can’t understand how its advertised as ‘smooth’, there is nothing smooth about it.
Absolutely love it
So easy and quick I have. Lot of hair and very curly does not take long make smooth I use this daily and no breakage love love love it will buy another when this dies
Easy and good
Great straighteners i saw some reviews of this hair straighteners and people say its bad how this is my favourite as it does have some pros and cons the pros outweigh the cons
Worst straightener I've ever used
This is bad far the worst hair straightener I've ever used. I wanted an upgrade from my muk and thought I'd try this after reading reviews on it. It clamps and pulls on my hair. It only straightens small (tiny) portions of hair at a time. Please dont waste your money on this below average product.
Good and easy to use
I love this bullet straightener and love the way my hair looks so glossy and silky after using them, such as difference, I do not need to go to a salon as often and can just style my hair with eas at home thanks to Silver Bullet Keratin 230, would recommend this product to a friend!
This is so bad it doesn't straighten my hair, it burnt it leaving crimps in it and i put it on my leg and it burnt it. Takes forever to heat up.
Love it! Better than my old ghd
Needed a replacement of my original ghd straightener as the current ghds are badly made. The silver bullet was just as good as my old ghd if not better! Definitely better price-wise!
Questions & Answers
Can any one tell me of my plates are ment to rock, move from side to side? Or did I get a faulty flat iron?
Is this better than the Muk 230-IR Straightner?
I am looking for a new straightener after I stepped on my Original Wide Plate GHD that I have had for 13 years and which never skipped a beat. Very devastated.
I am tossing between the Silver Bullet Keratin 230 and the Muk 230-IR Straightener.
I have very thick, frizzy, long, black Polynesian hair
Has anyone used both of these products?
I have a ghd platinum that I am fairly happy with, I have long, very thick quite coarse hair and like to straighten and curl my hair, I have recently read some rave reviews about the silver bullet keratin 230 and just wondered if someone with similar hair to me has had a good experience with this straightener?
Hello Danica. I would be VERY wary of buying a Silver bullet hair straightener. Look at the reviews...they are either love it, or hate it. They are very very inconsistent and this is exactly what this product is!! I have just bought TWO of them (one for me and one for my daughter) from Sydney hair salon and they both worked fine for 8 weeks then started faulting. As in: they do not work at all - light turns on but it remains completely cold, they spasmodically heat up to half the heat required sometimes, for the first 2 months they sometimes work perfectly, they are completely unreliable.
Just beware thats all! looks like it could be pot luck with these straighteners....some a good....some are crap.
Thank you so much for your help, I think I will stick to my ghd. All the retailers selling them only say it's great so it is really good to receive an honest opinion. Thank you again for your help!
