    Comments about Ghd Classic 1"" Styler:

    I have medium length, wavy, color treated hair. This iron works great for me. Smooths my hair in 1 pass & keeps it smooth, silky & shiny. Doesn't seem to "fry" my hair, and seems "gentler" on my hair compared to other popular flatirons. I'm so glad I took the plunge & invested in this iron. If you're on the fence about investing this much money for a flat iron, wait for a 20% off coupon to help offset some of the cost.

    Comments about Ghd Classic 1"" Styler:

    I absolutely love this product! I must say, after years of use it broke -- stopped working after the warranty. The only reason I didn't give all 5s was because of how costly these flat irons are and that they never go on sale :(
    I had no complaints on this iron ever -- until it just stopped working. It was a sad day.
    I have long, thick, naturally coarse hair and this iron straightened it amazingly every time. The ceramic plates kept it shiny and made sure the fly always were no longer existent. I also loved how it flattened and smoothed the ends. This flat iron can also be used to make curls - it's super easy to make some sleek waves or curls if you were in the mood to switch it up. Also, if you forget to unplug it or get sidetracked with something else - it would beep letting you know to unplug it or turn off.

    Comments about Ghd Classic 1"" Styler:

    after years of the CHI, I had to switch to a product my stylist tried to get me to switch to years ago. I had this one for not even a year. I thought when I tried it it was not all that I thought it was back when my stylist did it for me. It was heavier. I still kept it thinking I would get used to it. I went out of town to another part of the State I am in and in the hotel the flat iron beeped on and off and would never turn on again. I tired in many outlets after that, nothing. It just stopped working. Now I am trying again to replace and hopefully get my money back on this faulty one.

      Comments about Ghd Classic 1"" Styler:

      I purchased my 1st GHD a few years ago and after it stopped working on day, I thought that I could easily replace it with a CHI. WRONG. Terrible decision.

      GHD is a must have for anyone who straightens their hair, even just once a month. It heats up super fast and I swear my hair has a different texture after I use it. Smoother, softer, shinier.

      Definitely worth every penny.

        Comments about Ghd Classic 1"" Styler:

        I avoided this for a while and tried the babyliss and seductress first. Babyliss made my hair look more straw like and I didn't like the seductress for a number of reasons. I kept researching but finally decided to give this one a try. It's not the dream flat iron that only requires one pass to look perfect, but it does do a good job and I like how it feels and works with products that I use.

          Comments about Ghd Classic 1"" Styler:

          Okay, so i bought this flat iron about 7 or 8 years ago and it just now died - and I used it about 4-5 times a week. I absolutley love this flat iron. I have very long, think curly hair and this flat iron literally did wonders for me. when I would show up at the office with my naturally curly hair people would always comment that they never knew I even had curly hair because of how straight I was able to get it. I think that based on the life of my iron (7-8 years) that this is totally a great buy. I was sad when it died, but knew without a doubt I was getting another one asap. I also love the versatility of the iron, if used correctly and carefully you can easily create curls with it as well. I simply love this flat iron.

            AMAZING! Prior 2 buying my GHD, my stylist let me try both of her flat irons--CHI vs GHD. Let's just say I'm now the proud owner of a GHD! I'd def recommend this 2 ALL my friends!!

              I have had this flat iron for about 4 years now. Since I got it I have absolutely loved it. I have very long and fine textured hair but I also have a lot of hair. I find that its not damaging and really helps reduce frizz on my bad hair days. Mine is just starting to break a little bit but I also haven't taken the best care of mine since I normally just throw it in my traveling bags and I let the cord get tangled. I plan on repurchasing it soon!

                Comments about Ghd Classic 1"" Styler:

                I've been using Chi for a decade and recently decided I was one with them because they don't last like they used to. I decided to spend extra and get a GHD hoping it would last at least a few years. Boy was I disappointed when I saw how it worked. The first time I used it I noticed I had to go over my hair more, but the worst part was after leaving for work my hair immediately turned into a puffy, frizzy mess. I decided to try it again a few days later because it was damp outside the first day (I live in FL) and was again let down. I spent 30 minutes straightening my naturally curly/wavy hair and it was ruined within an hour, as if I had used a cheap store bought flat iron. If this is how my hair will look in January, I can't even imagine how it'll look in June! I just returned it for a refund. Both of the associates at the counter were shocked and said that they both own a GHD and love it. I asked how long they've had them and they both said over 4 years. I read online that GHD used to be great, but the quality has gone down and now I know it must be true. The associates even said that the price dropped by about 50 dollars since they bought theirs, so I'm sure GHD is skimping on quality just like Chi ended up doing in the last few years. I'm hoping a new company will make a quality flat iron that is actually worth spending a couple hundred dollars on!

                  Comments about Ghd Classic 1"" Styler:

                  This straightener is great. It heats up so fast--all my girlfriends are amazed. When I first purchased it to replace my Sedu Revolution flatiron I was really skeptical of the self regulating temperature. After 1-2 uses I seriously considered returning it, but after a few weeks I got used to it and I was sold. I have never had issues with it not being hot enough or with it being too hot and leaving me with a burnt hair smell (I HATE that). The only drawback for me is while I used to use my old flatiron for curls as well, I find it harder to manipulate my hair into the curl I'm looking for with the overall size and shape of the GHD.
