G H D hands down! I have T3 Wet and Dry and CHI, but the GHD is the most versatile amongst all of them. I can curl my hair with this with no problem at all.
GHD pure..hands down!!!!love it so much…=)
I love my HAI … I have a large and small and have found it works amazingly well on my naturally curly hair.
For the price, Conair Infiniti of any type. Designer and high-end flat irons do nothing but break easily and you need the products necessary for it not to destroy your hair. Me and my friend swapped flat irons, she took my Infiniti and I took her Cricket and CHI – they did nothing but cause breakage, friz and tear my hair up so now I’m left to do oil treatments and the whole ordeal just to revive my hair.
I agree, Candee. Anytime I’ve spent a good chunk of money on a flat iron, I’m lucky if it lasts 6 months. I have a Revlon one I got for $25 bucks and it’s lasted me over a year and half and still going strong.
Revlon is really good too. I think it’s a serious waste of money to go for anything other than the straighteners you can find just from a trip from Walmart and you save $30-$150.
I love my Tigi Bedhead straightener!! Its electric blue! I also have the Tigi Hardcore one that was 2 times as much and i like the Bedhead one better hands down.
GHD no contest. i have tried them all, drug store brands, chi’s, t3, even one with 4 plates! With my poofy wavy frizzy hair, nothing compares to the GHD and I can use it for curls as well!
Sedu, seriously takes no time to flat iron my hair!! Doesnt snag my hair like other flat irons have nor do you have to go over any section of your hair more than once!!!
Sedu is probably the worst I’ve used. I find the Solia too heavy and clunky but efficient and CHI is the fastest with best results
I have various HAIs…and I really like them a lot. Just got the “Twig” cuz I got my hair cut super short..a la Edie Sedgwick.
In terms of value, BabyLiss flat irons really impress me. They’re not as good as GHDs, of course, but they’re very good, and they cost more like £30 instead of £200
I have owned flat irons from the drugstore, a CHI, and now a GHD. The GHD works the best for me by far! GHD is expensive, but worth it IMO.
I agree with Candee!It’s a really total waste of time and money buy high-end flat irons.
I have the same Conair Infiniti for about 6 months and i’m very satisfied until now…
GHD’s hands down. Tried CHI and a few others but nothing beats the investment you get with a GHD.
I actually really like my Paul Brown Hawaii iron. It doesn’t burn my hair (like CHI did and like the GHD one that I tried at Sephora did) and it is easy to use when curling or straightening. It also doesn’t make my hair smell gross (like the CHI did) and makes my hair straight, not flat (again, like the CHI did)
It also has not broken yet, unliek my CHI which broke in 5 months.
I have tried a T3, CHI, Paul Brown, Conairs, and another one (I can’t remember the name.. Maybe Cricket? That one was replaced like. 4 times within a year) and out of them all, I have only found really good results with Paul Brown Hawaii.
I love my Chi It’s amazing. But once this one gives out on me I’m going to try the GHD.
I just bought a GHD recently and have mixed feelings about it? I like it but I don’t love it yet. I can’t seem to get the curl/wave thing down w/ my GHD like I can w/ the Conair Infinity… I thought there would be a huge difference after reading reviews about the GHD, but I am not seeing those kind of results yet? Can anyone tell me… is it necessary to use the suggested products to get great results? I mean, I use a heat protector spray (generic) or should I be using the GHD creams, sprays, etc. etc.?
the best one i’ve tried so far has been the chi
GHD is the best. I’m a latin women with curly hair and I’ve tried them all (CHI, T3, Conair). Nothing works best to give all the versatality like the GHD. My hair can either be full of volume, curly or pin straight. LOVE my GHD. Worth every penny!!!!
HAI ~ I haven’t tried other higher end ones, but after getting this per my stylist recommendation ~ didn’t need to. It’s great and i got it for about $80 on Ebay. Temp. setting, smooth and fast!
