Advantages: Super sleek hair
Disadvantages: None for me
I had previously been using a pair of other brand straighteners and only ever saw my hair in a perfectly pristine straight state when I had visited the hairdressers. I knew that they used GHD IV and could only really dream about owning a pair as I knew that they were pretty expensive and couldn't really justify just going out and buying some. So I went on with the sub standard straighteners which went through the motions but in all honesty were a total waste of effort as my hair was by no means sleek and perfectly straight after my many sweeps through with the irons.
My daughter got a pair of wide GHD's for her long hair and she is the one who sparked my interest even more as her hair was just gorgeous! And! She would just go into her room and dry her hair and then approximately 5 minutes later she emerged with this salon styled sleek perfection and I was just amazed!
Last Christmas I got a very nice surprise gift of my husband - you probably guessed that it was a pair of GHD IV straighteners. I was delighted and couldn't wait to try them out. I was apprehensive really when it was my first time to use them as even though I knew them to be the same as my hairdressers and daughters the proof was yet to be experienced.
I got the irons out of the beautifully presented box, they felt so high quality and looked very well made and indeed professional. They were black, matt and pretty light too. I plugged them into the socket and found that the power cord was a very generous length also. The irons have a on and off switch which just slides across - I switched on and settled down for what I was used to being quite a wait with my last pair but was surprised when the indicator flashed and a little noise alerted me to that fact that I was ready for action! This was incredibly fast, I had barely sat down and I was ready to use them. I picked them up and felt no heat on the handle and during the process the handle remained heat free so my hands where safe. I noticed straight away that the plates where really good quality and had a protective ceramic coating and also noticed that there was a curved edge to the irons which means that you could create curls if you ever wanted to!
The time came to select a section of hair and see how these irons performed. It was very noticeable how smooth the sweep through my hair was and the heat was HOT - these go through the hair like a hot knife through butter! My apprehension was turned to amazement and joy as sweep after sweep progressed I saw my hair transformed into the salon sleek and straight perfection!
These irons are a complete joy to use and they perform exceptionally well. They vary in price by small amounts depending on where you get them from but it is advisable to purchase from a allocated GHD retailer and then you are assured genuine item.
This product is very high quality and comes in a quality packaging which is aesthetically pleasing and bears the GHD logo and easy to understand information. A leaflet is within the box that shows step by step how to use and what not to do with these irons. The irons are good looking and ergonomically friendly, they have a protective coating on the plates that benefits you hair. The cable length is generous and the function switch is easy to use. The unit will tell you when it is ready to use by flashing and making a short noise. The unit has a safety cut off if left unattended and unused for a duration of time - this is reassuring as it can be easily done! The performance is incredible and impressive and at a cost of approximately £100 - £110 it is well worth the money as you really do get what you pay for.
I would have no problem at all recommending GHD IV to you.
Go get yourself all sleek and shiny!
Summary: Sleek and Shiney perfection!
