Product Description

So you’re in the market for a hair straightener/styler, right? But with so many choices available on the market these days, where do you start when it comes to choosing the right one for you? The GHD Gold Professional 1 Inch Styler is just one of the top hair stylers reviewed at Deziree Astra. Let’s take a closer look.

What’s it like?

The Gold Professional 1 Inch Styler, as its name suggests, is a ceramic styler with 1 inch plates. The smaller plates mean that it can be used not only as a traditional straightener, but also to add waves and curls to your hair. It’s ideally suited to shorter hair for the same reason, as larger plates can make straightening short hair quite awkward.

Ceramic plates heat up quickly and evenly, meaning you can glide them without risk of pulling your hair, and get the results you want with just one pass. There’s no build-up up static electricity either. A lighter and cooler body make the GHD Gold very easy to use compared to some other stylers out there.

Is it convenient for frequent travelers?

For size, the GHD Gold is going to fit into your travel bag without any difficulty at all. But that doesn’t always mean it’s going to be convenient to use. Fortunately, GHD have covered their bases and given the 1 inch Styler a 9-foot cord so you don’t have to borrow an extension cord to get in front of the mirror. The universal voltage is ideal for those who travel internationally. If you’re like me and have been known to leave electrical appliances on after finishing using them, do not fear – the GHD Gold will switch itself off if hasn’t been used after 30 minutes.

What I love about it

I love the fact that it’s compact and easy to use – the smaller size allows more precision when adding waves or curls at the tips while the ceramic plates mean that you don’t need to keep repeating the movements and there’s no uncomfortable hair pulling either. It’s travel-friendly, but the size also means that it’s a good buy for those who don’t have the largest dressing table or who want to avoid clutter.

The downside

Despite the 1 inch plates allowing for more precision when styling, if your main goal is to straighten your hair (and especially if you have long hair), you’ll find yourself spending a lot more time trying to do it with this styler. It might be an idea to do the straightening with a device with larger plates and then use the GHD Gold for tweaking afterwards.

Another improvement which could be made is that there’s no way to control the temperature of the plates – the only options are off and on!

My verdict

The GHD Gold is a great product – it’s reliable, easily portable, simple to use and you don’t have to worry about burning or pulling your hair. The real question to consider when considering purchasing this product is whether it is a good match for the particular look that you want.

It’s currently rated by Amazon users with 4.2 stars out of a possible 5, indicating a high level of customer satisfaction. Hopefully this review has been of use to you and will help you choose the right styler for you!
