GHD Gold vs IV
GHD Gold vs IV , what's the difference ?
I have now been fortunate to try both the normal regular GHD IV styler and also GHD's new range called the gold edition.
Now it's important to know that the gold edition are not one of those limited editions that GHD release quite a bit such as the blue green and red colored stylers, but in fact a new range aimed at the even more professional and the people that want to look after their hair just that little bit more.
Like all GHD products they are widely available throughout many countries. You can order them online and you can get them from any good stockist. A common place to find GHD's are in hair salons. If the salon does not have the type of straightener that you want in, then you can normally ask them to order them in for you as they have the contacts you don't.
The extra cost that it is going to drain you, is on average, depending where you shop around, an extra £40 more than the basic IV stylers, so your total cost to date will be around the £120 mark. As with all products you order these days you are likely to see a decrease in price in time. I remember when I bought the IV stylers a while back they were priced at £100 and now they are £20 less in most stores.
Do I think that it is worth the upgrade from the regular GHD IV styler ?
Now this is a really hard one to call. In most of my reviews I can just normally say a definitive yes or no, but on this occasion it is a really difficult decision to make. You can, as the consumer, certainly see the difference in build quality between the two stylers. However the difference it has on your hair compared to the regular styler is really hard to tell the difference apart. I can notice some difference in the sense that the hair does appear a little more silky but that is about it really.
The question that really lies to you is, how much to you want your hair look perfect ?
Is an extra £40 worth that extra silkiness, personally I would say yes after trying both. However as previously stated that is just my personal opinion and everyones idea on how important their hair is to them varies.
If I was asked the question "GHD Gold vs IV" which one is better ? I could say honestly that there is very little difference, but put head to head the edge would go to the Gold. However you would expect this since you are paying that little bit more.
It's also worth bearing in mind that at this present time you also do get a free bag included with your GHD gold stylers and also a heat resistant holder. If you're a guy like me then the bag wont be for you as it's quite feminine, but the resistant holder really does come in use when you want to get out the house before waiting for the stylers to cool down.
Thank you for reading this article entitled "GHD Gold vs IV", I hope you can now have a more clearer idea on which styler is right for you if any. As always I would love to hear your opinions on this, have a great rest of your day.
