Review of GHD Gold Classic styler by GetLowxX
I had been wanting a GHD for a while after seeing all the reviews online and YT videos as well. Having previously owned CHI and HAI irons, I was ready for something to really blow the socks off my hair and give me perfectly straight hair, while maintaining sleekness & shine.
Being that the most I had ever forked over for a flat iron was $90, I was hesitant to buy this but figured it would be worth it. I have only used it a couple of times in the past week but I absolutely LOVE this iron. My hair is color-treated, thick and a bit dry. I normally blowdry my hair as straight as possible then run over it with the flat iron. Recently, I didn't even need my blow dryer and just used the GHD on it section by section. It took a little longer, but my hair still felt great afterwards. Not only is my hair super straight, I also can add a bit of body to it as well just by starting at the root and slightly lifting my hair as I iron. Volume has never been an issue for me, but this little trick does help to give some lift at the roots. Even my boyfriend noticed how soft and shiny my hair was after using the GHD and I also noticed that my hair didn't have the typical fried burning smell like it has had in the past.
Another thing I like about this iron is how fast it heats up and how quickly it cools down once it's off. The 30 minute shut off feature is also nice too. Definitely worth the money I paid, but I wished it had came with a protective case or heat mat like my HAI iron had when I bought it, but it's something I can forgive. Try it if you are able, I find that it's worth the money.
