i went back and forth regarding this hair straightner; everyone said it was the best (made of the best quality/sturdy, etc.) and for the price point, you would believe that fact. the pros are that a.) it gets hot quickly (6 seconds wait time) b.) it has dual-voltage. the truth is, my hair is curly but not ridiculously curly, and it just doesn't get hot enough to get it straight with one pass through. i have to do all my strands 1-2 times to get it straight--which adds time. i think this thing goes till 390 degrees. i used to have a chi nano 1" (the older version from 3 years ago, not the digital one) that got hot quickly and got hot enough to straighten my hair properly (probably 415 degrees). i'm just not a big fan of this product, but i'll keep it because of the dual-voltage advantage for international trips. if anyone curls their hair with a hair straightner, this one does a good job with that as well.
I purchased this flat iron because it has dual voltage. It heats up quickly and gets very hot, but doesn't seem to straighten as quickly as the one I use in the states. If you go over the same strand several times, it does do the job.
I have curly hair which frizzes quite easily. For years it was quite difficult for me to obtain the glossy, sleek look while straightening my hair with the blowdryer then the flatiron. This was until I bought this GHD product ! It gets hot it a few seconds, does its duty in half the time other irons can do it and has dual voltage so I can use it also while travelling in Europe . Quite a winner !
