GHD Precious IV Styler Review!

I don't know where to begin with this review. Amazing flat iron. Just amazing. I flat ironed my hair this past Friday for a friend's wedding on Saturday. I clarified my hair with VO5 because I wanted to strip away any buildup that would interfer with the GHD products. I deep conditioned with my new Silk Elements Mega Cholesterol Conditioner. :-) The smell of it reminds me of the few times I've gotten my hair done at beauty salons. Nice smell. (will talk more about that in another post).
As you know from this post, the GHD styler came with the GHD Miracle Mist & the GHD Thermal Protector. I was a little nervous about using the Thermal Protector because I'm used to the Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer giving me such great results. I'm always wary about using a new heat protectant because of the bad ones I've run across. I put those feelings aside and used both the Thermal Protector and the Miracle Mist. I didn't use my go-to/ultimate staple VO5 Strawberries & Cream. If you follow my blog, you know I use this every time I wash my hair. The perfect leave-in. :D However, I did put my coconut oil in my hair.

Air drying took forever! I'm buying another blow-dryer next month. (yes, i still haven't bought one *looks around*) I don't use them often and that's why I've been procrastinating. Times like these I long for them. : \

So here are some quick facts about the GHD
-heats up in seconds
-switches to sleep mode automatically if not used for 30 minutes
-100% ceramic plates
-advanced ceramic heaters that are the same size as the plates (no hot spots)
-styles hair through heat, rather than tension
-seals the cuticle for brillant high-gloss results

Another fact about the GHD is that it doesn't have a variable temperature range. The flat iron heats up depending on your individual hair type and condition. Basically, the temperature is set based on your hair. Niiiccce. What flat iron do know that does that? The average temperature ranges between 370-380F. So after reading about it a little more, I sectioned off my hair in 3 sections and started flat ironing. The flat iron is so cute because it makes a little beep when it turns on. It heats up fast. Let me apologize to my FHI in advance for what I'm about to write. The GHD just glides through my hair ya'll. No snagging. No nothing. It didn't really feel like I was flat ironing my hair. It's a very gentle tool. My hair felt very satiny. It also felt extremely conditioned and soft. :D I was like, huh? My hair was so shiny & swangin'! I have to have the swang! lol And I must say the thermal protector and the miracle mist worked very well together. Basically, the GHD is a wonderful flat iron!!! The best I've ever used. :-) I see why they are known as the best by stylists and celebrities.

(sorry for the blurriness) I can not say enought great things about this flat iron. It truly is a wonderful styler. I recommend it to everyone. For more information, you can check out their website: Did you guys know GHD stood for "Good Hair Day?" ;-) You'll definitely have one with this flat iron. As a matter of fact, you'll have a "Great Hair Day!"

Note: GHD sent me this styler at no cost to review. As always, my reviews are based on my honest opinion. Thank you.

Great Review!! I've been looking into buying a new flat iron and I've been hearing good things about the GHD and I'm looking to buy one! You have proven that it works. I'm going to try the other products that you used on your hair before you flat ironed it. I love the silk elements cholesterol conditioner too! Great Stuff!! ~♥ Miss Nic ♥~
