Burnt hair even on low temps

published

My partner was talked into the halo for a Christmas present for myself with a curler. It has caused damage to my hair every time I have tried to use it. I have played with the temps thinking that would help but the plates seems to fry my hair no matter what. I am upset that my partner went in looking for a ghd only to be talked into this product. A lot of money for a horrible straightener

Perfect for my needs

published

I love my Kate! I have always used GHD previously and use a cloud9 wide plate iron when i straighten my hair. But when my GHD died i needed a normal width plate for my waves/curls and my kate is perfect for this. I love that i can adjust the temperature as my ends are a touch on the over processed side, so i don't want to dry them any further on the highest heat. I will admit my hair isn't overly coarse, but is thick and frizzy and once I've styled it it holds and stays smooth.

Same fault and can't refund it

published

I've used it less than 8 times before one of the plates stopped working. I asked for a replacement and it stopped working within 1 and a half years. Unfortunately since it was out of warranty, I couldn't get a refund or a replacement despite this being a manufacturer's fault. Won't be coming back to this again.

Worst Hair Straightner

published

The hair becomes frizzy after one hour again. I was recommended this product by southern cross hair house ware house outlet.It heats up so quickly, thats true. Other than that nothing good about that product. Do not waste your money

Great hair straightener.

published

I was choosing between this straightener and a GHD, but ended up going with The Kate.
The plates glide over my hair easily with no snagging or pulling, and it heats up so quickly. I like that I can choose the temperature it is set at too. It leaves my hair shiny and smooth due to its special black ceramic plates.
The only reason it isnt a full 5 stars is because I would prefer the plates to be a bit bigger. It takes slightly longer and I have to use smaller sections of hair because the plates are smaller than what I'm used to.

amazing

I really can't live without this hair straightener, I use it almost every day. It's just the right size and the right weight. It's easy to use and you can choose the temperature you want. This is a great hair straightener.

Quick and easy to use

published

I bought this after my old GHD died after reading terrible reviews on the new GHD.
It has been great so far, heats up quickly and is easy to run through the hair quickly on the way out.
I haven’t noticed any damaging effects on my hair but I am careful with using heat protectant before straightening. Overall a great product - I bought as a pack from hairhouse warehouse where I also got a hair curler - really impressed with the brand!

I have had my straightener for many years and use it almost daily. I have struggled with many other straightener but this one gets my hair dead straight in half the time, amazing!

Worst straightener ever

published

Don't waste your money. An absolute piece of junk. Doesn't straighten my hair properly. At best I can only achieve a substandard result. It's frizzy again after about an hour

I have frizzy-ish hair. THIS straightener is the ONLY straightener that works for me. I have tried almost every straightener and none of them give me the same smoothness and shine as this one does. It is truly remarkable.

Best ever straightner!!!

published

I bought this about 2/3 years ago. Best investment ever. I tried all the other top straighteners available at the time (including the GHD) and the 10 second test proved this was the best for me. I have super thick, curly, stubborn hair and it straightens so much faster than any other I've ever used. Definitely highly recommend

Absolutely amazing

published

My daughter has this hair straightener and I asked if I could use it one day. It was AMAZING!!!, I have thick curly, frizzy hair and most of the time it’s tied up, I’ve used a straightener with ceramic plates which took me close to an hour to get my hair reasonably flat, I told you my hair is frizzy.
The halo not only straitened it in half the time, it left it feeling soft with no fly away bits. It’s lightweight, slimline feel makes it easy to manipulate. I’m certain you will not be disappointed if you purchase one.

Questions & Answers

Corey A.

Corey A.asked

I am very disappointed in the Hair straightener after 18 months one of the plates stopped working. I returned the straightener to Hairhouse Warehouse to have them replaced. The sales woman was so rude and was not interested. My daughter saved for a year to purchase the "best product" at the time. They were merticulously treated by my daughter and were never dropped. Up until the warranty issue they were fantastic, but with poor post sales service, I will be purchasing something else, not a halo and certainly not from Hairhouse Warehouse.

I just bought a Kate and the instructions say that you can use it in any country as has this specific feature built into it.

Does anyone have the instructions around still? What do I need to chance to use it in a different country? (voltage-wise, since it’s dual-voltage)

Which straightener is better a ghd or a halo

2 answers
Linn
Linn

I still use my old ghd that I have had for years. I am also now too scared to buy a new ghd because I have read so many bad reviews of them now too. apparently, they now make them in China and that's why they aren't as good anymore. I would still like a new ghd but scared of wasting my money yet again.
My hair is very thick and curly and with my old ghd my hair stays nice until the next time I wash it. When I used the Kate my hair was only nice for an hour or so then it was boofy and the next day my hair was all over the place.
The girls at hairhouse warehouse now say to use a titanium plates straightener but I still think I would stay away from the halo brand and try something else now.

GHD are now crap. Dont waste your money. My 10 year old plus GHD is way better than the new ones.
I just purhased one last week and used it yesterday. I had to get my old one out to finish my hair as the new one
just struggled to smooth it.
