Omg I love I love I love

I’m so satisfied with my Kate hair straightener it only takes like 30 ish seconds to get hot. I have very thick hair and it takes me 15 minutes to do all my hair. It’s very easy to use I originally bought the ghd and it broke on me twice after one use so then I got the ghd from hair house warehouse and it was the best decision ever.. it gives u a nice shine to ur hair and not make it dry cause if they plate on the flat iron.

No bad only

published

It’s not easy to use as the hair straightener is so heavy! The store manager kept promoting this one to me when i was in store that I didn’t even notice the weight of it, the hair straighter is just okay cuz the outcome of my hair after using that is not really good, it’s just normal, so please do not listen to what they recommend in store

Excellent hair straightener

published

I love my halo hair straightener, heats up quick, adjustable heat temperatures and it slides easily through my hair. After years of using ghds I can honestly say I 100% prefer the halo.

Does a super job!

published

I only straighten my hair occasionally as it is very fine and doesn't like too much heat. I can get a great sleek look with this and feel that it stays within safe heat limits. It heats up very quickly and also gives very good control. I like it!

Recommended!

I got this on a friends recommendation. I have fine hair and have trouble with some overly hot hair straighteners. I got lovely results with this and can dial in the temperature just so. It heats up very quickly and has a super handy feature of shutting itself off if you forget and leave it on .

Thick wavy hair

published

I was looking for something that heated up fast and worked quickly with my thick, wavy hair and this has performed well for me for a few years now and still looks like new.

I mostly use it to run over my hair if its looking a bit frizzy or if a few of my waves are needing a tidy up. Don't often straighten my hair with it, use it for making nice waves

Had to cut all my hair off

published

I have super thick and wavy hair. Had a GHD before the halo which i loved but it was getting old. Was recommended the halo at the store. After a couple of months usage I noticed my hair was brittle and wirey to which my hairdresser said my hair straightener had totally destroyed my hair. I have had to have it cut off because nothing would repair it. Unfortunately it’s been to long for me to take it back to the store to get a refund. I’m devastated.

Happy Customer

published

I have had my Halo straightener for over a year now and I am pretty happy with it. I did however have it on the highest temp when I first started using it without knowing and snapped all my hair off so beware!! I now use it on approx 170-180 degrees and it works perfectly. My hair is overly curly and thick and I manage to straighten it all in about 15-20 mins. I would recommended giving it a try. I went through a GHD at least every two years and my halo is still going strong in less than that time but I believe it will last me a few more years

Great product

published

I went from a 10yr old GHD to this. GHD was still going strong, just felt I deserved an upgrade.
I have long thick bleached hair. I procrastinated and tried a couple in store. It destroyed my old GHD (as expected) and felt lovely on my hair. It is quick to heat up and easily glides through the hair. I have had it for 12months now and it hasn’t missed a beat. I am glad I didn’t bother with the more expensive types and this does the job perfectly.

Great but has drawbacks

published

It does tend to straighten your hair pretty unevenly due to the heating plates not meeting, I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. Besides from this, the straightener does an okay job and does leave your hair sleek.

Heating plates don’t meet and give uneven finish

published

The heating plates only meet at one end and so the end result is uneven. Very disappointed. I wish I had bought a different brand. Will be taking it back to the store of purchase to find out if it is a manufacturing fault or if it meant to be like this.

Great price great products

This straighter heats up fast and cools down really quickly. Good for thicker hair types but does not snag on hair.
Really good value for money and great warranty in place.

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.
