Rated 4.7 out of 5 stars
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.

I have fine, medium density, color treated hair. I've been shopping around, trying different dryers and This is The Best hair dryer I've found. I've been using it a few weeks now and I'm very happy. It delivers the results promised.

it's a good solid dryer. Produces a nice blow dry in a decent amount of time. It's a little heavy but the functionality is amazing. Wish it came with a diffuser. I use it professionally and haven't had any problems. It is a little heavy though I'm interested to try more of this company's products.

Great when it worked but broke with no heat coming through in less than a year. For this price i would expect longer life span.

I did so much research, but it turns out that weight is a big deal for me with a dryer. This guy was heavy!! From the minute I opened the package, even the cord felt extra heavy. I'm returning and going for a specifically lightweight option. I can't speak for performance as I didn't make it past the weight.

Perfect combination of heat and power

I ordered this on 6/24. It is not shipping until 7/5 which they don't tell you until after you order. It is now 7/8. They are asking what I think of the blow dryer. I'd love to tell you but I still don't have it. Buyer beware…extremely slow processing and shipping.

I had used a few brands of blow dryers in the past and ghd is the best of all. It's powerful and durable.

I love this hair dryer! The plum color with gold accents makes a gorgeous combo, but more importantly it's incredibly powerful. I have a ton of hair and this hair dryer gets it dry in about half the time, and it's fairly quiet for all the air it's putting out. I love the multiple setting options, and the cool blast helps perfectly set the finished style.

I never thought a hair dryer could impress me so much! I'm familiar with GHD products because I have one of their flat irons which I adore and recommend, but never thought about what one of their hair dryers could do for my hair. WOW! I've had my drugstore hair dryer for about fifteen years and it's been just… fine. I see that now. This hair dryer drys my thick, long hair faster and safer. I can tell because my hair is much less frizzy after drying. I am have been using my same products and same routine since using this dryer and have had better results. Though this dryer is simple with a low and high heat and cool shot, it performs. The cool shot is excellent. It isn't heavy. I'm very happy to have this. I received this from Influenster and GHD in exchange for my honest review.

First of all, the design is gorgeous! I love the chic and sleek look to the dryer. It's very comfortable to hold, and the button placement is perfect. It dried my natural twists quickly. The only issue I have with the dryer is I wish it came with a diffuser part/comb attachment. I have really thick curly hair, and those two attachments would make all the difference!

It has been over a decade since I purchased a hairdryer. When my hairdryer almost blew up on me, I did a lot of research and found that your hairdryer was the best. I was really impressed at how the temperature control doesn't fly my hair like the old hair dryer did. Love it!

I really like this ghd helios professional hair dryer. It is light and comfortable to hold. It drys my hair quickly.
Ald649f from Quincy Illinois
I absolutely love this hairdryer! It's powerful and dries very quickly. I love the way my hair feels after using this and it also makes my hair so shiny. I can't wait to get the other attachments for it. Thank you so much for allowing me to try your product!

I received this hair dryer from Influenster and GHD in exchange for an honest review. I already owned 2 hair dryers and this's the first time i use a GHD product so i'm kind of skeptical. First, it came in a nice package with pretty color, very lightweight and does not make my hands feel tired while holding it. I've a fine, thin, long hair and it takes around 7' to totally dry so on average it's a little bit shorter compared to other brands with same speed. Buttons are very simple and you can control power and heat levels the way you want quite easy. Not too noisy is also an advantage. More importanly, it left my hair smooth and no tangles so in general, i feel rather satisfied.

I'm actually impressed.. I'm not going to lie, I have the Dyson and the drybar hair dryers so I wasn't expecting anything spectacular but this literally dried my hair faster than both. It left it super shiny and smooth as well! VERY impressed.

I was hoping to love this hairdryer. It is lightweight which I was looking for but it does not seem to dry my hair as quickly as my rusk speed freak. Also does not seem to get hot enough. Very pricey. I ended up returning it.

I received this product from Influenster in exchange for my honest review. I love this dryer! As long as you know your way with a round brush it's great. Cute color too :)

Let me say first that I received this incentivized product for free from Influenster and ghd campaign for my honest review.
I have super thick heavy hair that takes forever to dry. This dryer does the trick in half the time. My hair felt smoother as I have a fair amount of natural curls, this tames them and gives my hair a nicer shine than my previous dryer did. I recommend this to anyone who needs to tame a thick wild mane of hair without feeling so terribly dried out and losing the shine.
The con for me is the weight since I have developed arthritis in my wrist and hands. Otherwise this is definitely a dryer you should consider buying.

I received this product for free for my honest opinion. I feel as though it is a lighter hair dryer but not the most ergonomical. The concentrator is great but the heat feels a little strong. I wish it had more options in between the settings. It's a solid hair dryer and is quick but has some room for improvement.
Zaibelita from Orlando, Florida
Loved this blow dryer it is very light weight. I did receive it for free from Influenster and ghd in return for my honest review.
HM2023 from Milwaukee, WI
I was sent this hairdryer by influencter and I am pleased with this product. It's very lightweight and my hands/arms don't hurt after blow drying my hair. It is pretty quiet and I can use it and still hear my music while I'm getting ready. I noticed that this hair dryer dries my hair quicker then my old hair dryer. I love burgundy/plum color as well!
Racquell from VA
I've had this for over a year. It does what it's supposed to and it dries my hair. It's a pricey nice-looking hair dryer.
Jmy1210 from Virginia
Hair dryer is an essential for my everyday routine. This product is perfect for my need. It dries my hair so quick without overheating my thin hair. I have a dyson and this would be an ultimate lower cost. Feel lighter. I would recommend this product to anyone who dont feel like they wanna pay as much as the dyson but still want the effect of it.
