The GHD Gold Styler Straightener convinces, despite the very expensive price, our testers. With only little effort the hair is straightened and one gets the impression that the hair is not so much damaged as b yusing similiar products. It is very easy to use and heats up quickly. There is no "hair pulling" when straightening and you are quickly done with straightening with little effort. The result can be shown. In addition to straightening, you can also style wavy hair with this GHD hair straightener.
The GHD Gold Styler Straightener comes in a typical plain straight iron design. The first impression of the quality of the straightening iron is very good. It lies well in the hand and looks very stable and high quality processed. In contrast to the other smoothing irons, this GHD has no additional functions such as manual temperature control, display or protective locking. There is only an On/Off button.
In the scope of supply are:
- Hair Straightener
- Instruction manual
- Heat resistant plate protection
If you turn on this hair straightener, you have to wait about 25 seconds until it has heated up. A signal sounds and the On/Off button flashes. As soon as the hair straightener has warmed up, the button lights up continuously and a signal sounds again. Already with the first application one notices, how gently this device glides through the hair from the hairline, without "hair pulling". With only one or two hair strands, the strand is already smooth (and that with thick, wavy hair). The temperature is set automatically and is approx. 175-185 °C. The hair is then gently waved over the hair twice. In addition to smooth hair, the hair also shines. The smoothed condition was still visible after two days. Compared to other straightening irons, GHD significantly reduces the time required for straightening. The result was very good but similar to some other hair straighteners we have tested recently. With this product you certainly don't do anything wrong, no matter which hair structure you have. Ultimately, the buyer has to decide, whether a price difference of approx. 100 Euros compared to other products is worth it. Saving time, however, is definitely possible with the GHD.
Before you clean this GHD straightener, you must first wait until it has completely cooled down. It is also best to clean this appliance with a damp cloth (rod and handle). No sharp or aggressive cleaning agents or corrosive products should be used.
