Review| GHD Scarlet Deluxe Hair Straightener/Dryer Collection

Hii everyone, didn't that "long weekend" fly by!? 

I've got a bit of a different post for you today, its haircare rather than make up! 

If any of you follow me on Instagram (@lauramorrall92), you'll already know that I treated myself to a new set of GHD's! :) I've had my last set for around 5 years now, and to this day, they still work brilliantly, however they were looking a bit worse for wear. I've tried no end of brands for straighteners over the years, and honestly, nothing compares to GHD's and its one of very few things that I am willing to pay top prices for in life.

I'm so happy with it, and it really is a beautiful set. & I just couldn't wait to share it with you all :)

Packaging & Delivery
Ghd offer free delivery from their website. Once purchased I received an automatic email acknowledgement saying my order and payment had been received. I received a second email telling me my order had been dispatched and providing me with a tracking number. To my surprise they arrived with me the next day. So I really can't knock them for the efficiency(despite there being a comment on the website saying there might be a delay due to high demand for this set at the time). They arrived quickly and well packaged/protected.


Extra's
The set comes with its own beautifully designed Art Deco style trunk/chest, which I will probably end up using to store my make up or maybe hair products at some point, but I don't want to ruin it just yet. It is sturdy and well made. Inside the chest is also a matching clutch bag (again with an Art Deco style theme), which doubles up as a carrier/travel bag for the straighteners due to it being heat resistant. Inside this is a couple of ghd sectioning clips. In no way can I complain about the amount of extra's you get for your money with this set!


ghd Classic Styler with Limited Edition Scarlet Plates
This styler is based on the original gold styler but comes with limited edition scarlet plates and detailing. This styler is perfect for my hair type, as the plates are neither too wide nor too thin. Not only do they straighten but because of the rounded barrel you can use them to create all types of curls/waves in your hair too. They heat up to around 230 degrees I believe which provides amazingly quick styling capabilities however I would definitely recommend using a heat protection spray, preferably the ghd Heat Protect Spray. They are ready to use within 30 seconds of turning them on, great when you're in a rush, and they do go onto standby after around 20-30 minutes without use, I'm forever forgetting to turn them off before leaving the house, naughty me! After trying many stylers over the years, I'm yet to find one that can even begin to compare to the ghd's!


Limited Edition Travel Hair Dryer
I was super excited when I realised this set came with an official ghd hair dryer too! Being a "travel" dryer I wasn't expecting much, but I've actually been using it over my normal hair dryer because its really powerful and reasonably quiet too! The dryer itself is sleek and stylish and compliments the rest of the set really well. Like a lot of travel dryers it folds up on itself to become super compact. Overall I'm quite impressed by this, and I hope I get as much use out of it as I have from my straighteners over the years!


Guarantee & Quality
In my eyes, the only way to guarantee authenticity was by ordering direct from ghd!
I've heard so many stories about sales of fakes/replicas and wanted to steer well clear. Ghd offer a 2 year warranty with this set which I think is fantastic. I know they are great quality because as I say, I had my last set for around 5 years and they are still in perfect working order even after lots of use not only by myself but  my mom, sister, and even my brother when he had longer hair haha! 
I truly believe that if you want quality you should invest (and it's not very often you'll hear me say that).


This set is still on offer on ghd's website HERE for only £99! Original RRP £149.99!


Do you own ghd's, what styler do you have?
Or what is your go to hair straightener/brand?

    1. I would never normally pay over the odds for a product, I'm always about cheap and cheerful normally. But I got my first set as a Christmas present, and I couldn't imagine using anything else now.
