ghd Arctic Gold Straighteners Review


I'm a huge fan of straighteners, I've always been the girl to wear her hair straight over curled. I'm not sure why, perhaps it's laziness, who knows (it's laziness).

However, since 2004 when I was bought the first pair of pink ghd straighteners I fell in love, and then to have this gorgeous Arctic Gold ghd straightener sent to me for review, I couldn't quite believe it.

This is ghd's latest collection, which comes with two curling tongs, two wands and a hairdryer (sold separately). Whilst I can't speak for the other items, I can give you a review of the straightener.



Packaging
As you can see above, the straighteners come in a gorgeous white box with a gold design that has a festive feel to it. There is a clear image on the side of the box as to what it contains.

The straighteners themselves are in a gorgeous ice gold colour, with white and gold accents which makes them feel much more luxurious.

They also have a swivel cord, as most ghd's do, which means you can twist and turn the straightener and the wire won't tangle... result!



Ease of Use
ghd's work. We all know that by now, otherwise they wouldn't be so prevalent in the hair straightening world.

I do feel a difference between these and my previous straighteners though, the arctic gold collection glides through my hair so easily making my hair straight in a matter of 5 minutes. Here it is appropriate for me to tell you that I don't have curly or unruly hair, I have naturally pretty straight hair with the odd kink here or there. However, I do see them smoothing out all hair types without any fuss.

A lot of people are uncertain when you mention curls and straighteners in the same sentence, but they shouldn't be, as these make it a doddle to do. In fact, if you want to see how I create curls with this, check out my YouTube video:


Durability
The one thing that I can definitely vouch for with ghd's is their durability. Remember that pink pair I spoke about earlier, yup I've still got them and they're going strong! Admittedly, I don't use mine everyday, in fact once a week might be pushing it. But the repetitive use of them over 11 years hasn't seen them faulted in any way whatsoever.

Overall, I don't think I could ever look to another brand to recommend other than ghd's. They get the job done, and they get it done the first time. I know what you're thinking, this sounds sponsored or that I only like them as they were sent to me, but none of this is true. I just wanted to share a genuine review of these with you (they didn't even ask me to write this!).

Are you a fan of ghd's? Let me know your thoughts on this collection in the comments :)
