Size Options

The GHD comes in 2 basic sizes, a 1″ or a 2″.  

This is the width of the ceramic plates and while I prefer the 1″ personally due to its compact size, with the 2″ you can do bigger sections of hair at once, which will be a time saver for sure!

This would be especially great if you are someone that straightens your hair daily.

There is also a 1/2″ available as a travel purse size for those all important touch ups when you are out!

Sleek, Sexy Design

This is a sleek and stylish design with the smoothest plates to make straightening hair of all lengths and types so much easier.

Another great feature is the 30 minute sleep time which is an awesome safety mechanism allowing it to automatically turn off after half an hour of inactivity. No more wondering if you remembered to turn the straightener off after you have left the house!  

Heat Protection for You and Your Benchtop

It heats up super fast but the body remains fully cool and light with a protective plate guard to pack it safely away as soon as you have finished doing your hair.

The GHD also has universal voltage which means you can take it with you wherever in the world you go!

Heat Protection for Your Hair

The GHD Straightener has super cool technology which ensures even heat distribution and automatic temperature control over the plates.

Because the plates get awesomely super hot, I would recommend the use of a protective hair serum as well.  

GHD makes a heat protect spray which is great, or there are plenty of other serums based on an Argan oil recipe which smell great and work well to not only protect your hair from heat damage, but also give it a smoother sleeker look.

You can create beautiful curls and flicks as well as just straightening with the GHD with its specially contoured plates and rounded barrels.

Special Editions

GHD regularly release a bunch of special edition straighteners with extra design features and groovy colours.  Look out for these!

I have had an original GHD Straightener for over 6 years now and it still works as well as it did on the day I bought it.  

In those days the price was closer to $350 for one so I am excited to see how much cheaper they are now!  I think they are totally worth every penny for the money you save on visits to the salon.
