GHD Hair Straighteners

Features Of The Best Hair Straighteners Of 2018

When it comes to buying a new hair straightener, there are many different features that you need to look out for so that you can accurately compare the pros and cons of all the different devices in the marketplace. Perhaps the most important feature of any straightener is good temperature control. Such a feature is particularly important if you plan to share your flat iron with your mother, sister or friends, who may have hair with a different texture. Fine hair or damaged hair typically needs to be straightened at temperatures below 180C, while coarse, thick curly hair needs temperatures above 210C to get the best results.

Another feature to take note of when looking for the best GHD hair straighteners of 2018 is plate size. If you have very long, thick hair, you probably want a device with a wide plate to save time when straightening. If you have short fine hair, however, a wide plate may be difficult to manipulate in order to get the style that you would like, so you probably need to look for a device with a plate size of around 1.25 to 2 inches.


A few features that the best hair straighteners share include 360-degree swivel cord, auto shut-off, ergonomic design, fast heat up, at least a one-year warranty and ionic plates. If you are looking to save time when styling your hair each morning, you might want to learn more about wet to dry straighteners. Such devices can be used on towel-dried hair negating the need to use a hairdryer. That said, some beauty bloggers have reported that when hair is straightened from damp, the style does not last very long. At the end of the day, in order to get the best device for your needs, you need to spend time reviewing the detailed product specifications of the top ten best hair straighteners of 2018.
