GHD's Helios 1875W Advanced Professional Hair Dryer is their lightest and fastest professional hair dryer, for ultimate styling control.
Bought this during a Cyber Monday sale, with good savings. Was replacing a VERY old hair dryer, and had been looking at the Dyson, but couldn't quite bring myself to spend that money. However, I did want to spend an amount to ensure I would get a good, long-lasting hairdryer that I would use for the next 10+ years.
Overall, I have loved this hairdryer so far.
- Pretty design (I got white)
- Extremely efficient. While it took 15-20 minutes to dry my medium-thickness, curly, shoulder-blade length hair with my old hair dryer, this truly only took 5-8 minutes with the diffuser.
- As others have said, highest heat setting is hot but doesn't burn your scalp.
- Seems to minimize frizz, but don't have enough uses yet to say for sure.
- Yes, price, but seems a good investment.
- As others have noted, does not come with a diffuser. For this price, it should. I will try not to take it as a personal affront to curly-haired users such as myself. :) Does come with the cone/blade/thingy I've never used on my curly hair.
- Not super light, but won't hurt your wrist or forearm either (and I don't have too much to compare it to).
I was so excited to get this blow dryer, but after receiving it, I was immediately disappointed.
1st off its very heavy, 2nd the heat is very high even on the lowest setting,and when applying the cool burst its so cool it hardly drys.
My biggest complaint, is that it blows so hard it tangles my hair up. I have a lot of fine hair. I even used a brush to help control it, but that didn't work either. After about a week of trying it out, I noticed my hair was frizzy and I had a ton of damage to the ends. I use a heat protection every time I dry my hair.
Unfortunately I have to return it and am currently trying the instyler blow dryer 🤞witch is half the weight.
Finally pulled the trigger on this hair dryer. My hairdresser has used one for years and I always loved it. It dries my hair quick and smoothes it out.
Love the power of this blow dryer , it gives a lot of shine and keeps hair smooth and silky ! Exactly what I wanted !! Worth the extra money ! The weight is good and I like that the buttons are not in an area that can easily be switched while holding!
I received this product for free through Influenster, I was super excited and started to research about the product. For an almost $300 professional blow dryer I was expecting more. The box the product came in is nice and sturdy but the body itself is made of plastic and it feels cheap, but the fact that the product is light is a plus. Super easy to use, and I was able to dry my hair pretty quickly. The pressure is strong and it can go pretty hot (which is great for a good blow out look). I did enjoy the product and would recommend to a friend although i could reach similar results with a cheaper alternative.
I received this product for free from Influenster and ghd in exchange for my honest review. I really, really like this hair dryer. I typically use a Shark so my opinion of this dryer is in comparison to the performance I get from my Shark. I found the ghd dryer to be very fast without being overly hot or loud. The concentrator also works really well! I was able to get shiny, smooth hair every time I used this. I am really impressed by that because my hair is wavy and very prone to frizz. I will continue to use this dryer and would definitely recommend it.
*I received this product complimentary for my honest review.*
I have gone my entire life depending on cheap hair dryers. I never saw the point in paying hundreds of dollars for a styling tool that does the same thing as something cheaper. Let me tell you, this hair dryer is a game changer for me. It takes me half the time to blow dry my hair. Not only that, I have to spend a lot less time using other heat styling tools. I love the feel of it, and the thick cord is great! It doesn't get all tangled up. Overall, just a great product.
