GHD Stylers come in three different sizes. These three sizes include the Classic, Mini and Max. When GHD was designing the GHD Max Styler, they had ladies with very long and/or thick hair in mind. The Max Styler has wide plates so that people with this type of hair can get their hair straight a lot faster than what they could with other models. GHD didn’t just go a little bigger with the plates either, they went a whopping twice as wide with the plates.
One would think that the Max would be pretty heavy with plates this big, but that’s not the case. It unusually light for its size, so it’s not any more difficult to use than other stylers. The light weight of the unit also comes in handy when traveling.
The GHD Max Styler heats up very quickly too. When you turn it on, a light on the switch with a “GHD” logo will begin flashing to let you know it’s on. The light will stop flashing, and it will beep three times in about thirty seconds to let you know that it is now ready for use. This is much faster than what it takes the average hair straightener to warm up. If you are one of those people that like to wait to the last minute before getting ready to leave, you will love this feature.
One thing that people tend to notice first is that there’s no heat setting. This is because GHD straighteners have advanced circuitry that lets them know exactly what temperature they need to be at. At first glance, you may think that a temperature control is a feature that it’s lacking. In reality… This is an added feature that you don’t see.
Another feature that you can’t see it the automatic shut-off.
When the unit is left unused for thirty minutes, it will shut down on its own. This is a safety feature that all hair straighteners should have in my opinion.
A plate guard is an accessory that also comes standard with the Max Styler. The guard slides over the top of the plates keeping them locked together. This comes in very handy when traveling as well as protecting the plates and making the unit easier to store.
Straightening hair is not the only thing this styler is good for. Now that they come with a rounder barrel, they can be used to create flicks, curls and waves. This means that you don’t need tongs and curlers any more. In addition to the savings from not having to purchase these additional items, you will also be able to pack a little lighter when traveling.
In my opinion, the GHD Max Styler is very good straightener. The price is higher than what you would pay for an average straightener, but the benefits outweigh the cost. They’re quality built, so it should last you longer than ordinary straighteners which will save you money. You will also be able to style your hair quicker which will save you time. And, don’t forget that you’re not nearly as likely to damage you hair with one of these which would cost you both time and money.
