Cloud Nine Straighteners

Cloud Nine Touch Review

GHD VI Styler

The first thing we want to say is that these are both excellent high end, top quality hair straighteners. They both do a fantastic job of straightening your hair, which you would expect considering their prices. However, there are a couple of things that Cloud 9 straighteners offer that give them the edge and lead us to the conclusion that they are better than GHD.

Comparison Table

Prices for these straighteners can fluctuate. This can depend on the season or a particular company decides to run a sale. To help you spot a bargain more easily I have included a comparison chart below which includes features and prices. Happy hunting 🙂

Temperature Control

It is often documented that constantly using high temperature through flat irons can cause damage to your hair. It can really frazzle your hair and cause it to fall out. If this has happened to you or you are worried about it, then Cloud 9 offer lower temperatures than GHD. GHD only has one heat setting.

Shine

The special plates on the cloud 9 leave your hair with a rich, beautiful shine. This is something that a GHD styler does not do.

Other Comments

We checked out a couple of video bloggers videos to see what they had to say. Fashion obsession said that she has used Remington & GHD flat irons in the past but since using Cloud Nine said they were far superior. She said her hair felt in better condition and now styles with the heat on a lower setting. She also liked the auto turn off feature after burning a hole in the carpet after leaving her GHD’s on. In her video MaameAtHotHairSistas had come back from her hair salon raving about Cloud Nines. She said it was perfect for African American hair and again the fact you could style with a lower heat setting was a huge plus factor.

Overall I think these are the best straighteners I’ve ever owned (& so they should for the selling price) I am comparing them to GHD’s because its a natural thing to do, they’re round about the same price & made by the original designers of the GHD’s. But i have to say there’s no comparison; Obsessed by Beauty

Price

 

In terms of price, the original cloud 9 is now more expensive than the GHD IV styler. However the GHD is the same price as the new cloud 9 touch.  Cloud Nine also sell a wider plated version for women with long hair. Fortunately this is the same price as the regular model so you will not be punished by price for having long hair.
