One of the hottest new trends in home styling these days is the “GHD” straightener. These are also
called ceramic magnetic heaters, or in Europe a “mechanically heated iron”. In America, the term
“GHD” has become a synonym for the “GHD Straightener“.
These products were introduced to the market by a small American company, called Haco. This was
originally a spin-off from a company in Japan that produces heating devices, including, but not
limited to, magnetic heaters. Haco began selling these straighteners in the United States around
Like any other heating device, these straighteners will warm up in an arc, and once they have
reached their correct temperature, they will turn on to provide the proper amount of heat to
straighten your hair. However, this type of straightener produces the full 360-degree circle of heat
rather than just a strip or straight line.
Because of the heat these straighteners generate, most people find that these are even more
effective in the styling department than those usually found in hair salons or spas. The fact that the
heating is internal instead of external will help keep your hair dry and avoid frizz or fly away.
The drawback to these straighteners is that, because of the intense heat, the hair ends up having a
scorched appearance after each use. This can be unappealing to some consumers, so the next step
in the process is to use some sort of styling product, such as a flat iron, after using the straightener
to help prevent premature damage.
But these heaters, while being very popular in the United States, are not that common in the United
Kingdom, for the same reason mentioned above, the fact that their heat is concentrated internally.
As a result, they do not last nearly if those in the United States.
If you visit the company in the United States or UK, you will probably find that all their models are
quite similar in their features, but they will differ in terms of design and manufacturing method.
However, you can find them both in electrical outlets and on the Internet. You can also find a more
expensive set of straighteners, with much better heating capabilities, but you must choose one
which is appropriate for your budget.
The other option is to go to your local store, pick up a Hako product, and experiment with it to
decide if it is right for you. If you do not like it, you can always return it or go and buy a different
When you are shopping for a straightener, the best thing to do is to keep things simple, and stay
away from the high-end models, as this is likely to cause you problems in the long run. You might
even consider staying with a basic model and testing it out to see if it can still serve its purpose, or if
you would like to upgrade to something more expensive.
But, if you can afford to do so, then the choice is actually pretty easy: you can go to your local retail
store and pick up a Haco model, or you can find a brand new brand on the Internet and order it
online. However, you should take your time when looking around and make sure that you know
what you want before you commit to any purchase.
Because there are many types of Haco models, they are not all available at the same price, and the
actual price can vary depending on the brand and the style of straightener you choose. A
straightener will cost about twice as much as a similar model that is branded differently, and so you
will want to go for the model that best suits your needs.
If you want to save money, then the best way to go about this is to go to your favorite search engine,
type in “Haco straighteners”, and then do a search for your model, with the number of dollars that
you expect to spend. You will find this in abundance when you are looking for the exact same item at
different prices online.
