GHD IV Styler
Advantages: Perfectly straightens hair, easy to use, curls as well as straightens, automatic shut off
Disadvantages: A bit pricey
I first started using ghd straighteners 7 years ago and have never looked back since!
In that time I have purchased 3 different ones with the most recent one being the classic IV styler. I would say that this one is definitely the best that I have used. I currently have shoulder length hair that is naturally wavy so for me a good hair straighter is a must and I use the styler most days. I have found that because it is quite small and sleek it is much easier to use and I can straighten my hair much quicker using this compared to my previous larger size ghd styler.
Once switched on the display light comes on and heats up within minutes making a beep noise to let you know the desired temperature has been reached and is ready to use.
The ceramic plates definitely make a difference, giving a sleeker style with reduced static and are much less damaging which is very important to me as my hair is regularly dyed and easily dries out on the ends. As well as straightening hair it can also be used to curl. My usual hair style is straight but I have curled it a few times since purchasing the styler and was very impressed with the result, soft light curls which was perfect for a recent wedding I attended and with a little hairspray the curls stayed in all day too!
An added feature on this styler is that it has an automatic sleep mode so if the styler is switched on but not been used for 30 minutes it automatically switches itself off which is a great safety point.
I would definitely recommend this styler, although it can be a bit pricey the pro's outweigh the cons and it is worth every penny!
Summary: a great hair straightener well worth the money
