When looking in to purchasing new straighteners I immediately thought of buying GHD's simply because many friends had said they were fantastic but I also heard that they could damage your hair and I saw the three digit price tag! So I looked around and found the BaByliss Pro 230 Elegance Bronze Straightener and I am so glad I did. They are absoulutely fantastic and buying them on Amazon was a great success too, they were £25.00 cheaper than in high street stores and the express delivery was well worth it. I have thick hair and usually it would have taken me nearly an hour to straighten my hair thoroughly, however with the long plates it took me a maximum of half an hour and the finish was amazing, they made my hair so soft, frizz free and shiny and it lasts for a long period of time, even the next morning it looks like you've had a whole styling session! The three heat settings are a real bonus as it gives you complete versatility to achieve any look you want. And that leads me on to saying, you can curl and crimp your hair with them too. These striaghteners are an absoulute must and with a stylish heatproof mat and travel pouch I can't find a single reason why you shouldn't buy these!

! Happy Straightening !

I read lots of reviews for this product before I decided to buy them and have to admit that even though I'd heard they were good, I thought they couldn't possibly be THAT good!

They honestly are amazing. I have used GHDs for over 2 years and thought that they were the only ones for me, but these have straightened my hair more quickly, and it looks and feels so healthy. They even seem to have got rid of that "halo" of frizz I sometimes get. The deal clincher was the 5 year guarantee, something I wished I'd had with my GHDs when they finally went out.

If you think that you could only use GHDs, please give these a try, they are fantastic! I'm recommending them to my friends and family, even my boyfriend is impressed.

After reading the great reviews of this product on this page, the reviewers sold it to me and I'm not disappointed! Heats up in seconds and I only have to go straighten each section of hair once. I wake up in the morning and my hair is still poker straight like GHDs! I go out in the drizzly rain and it's still straight! For £35, this is a bargain! It comes with a generous 5 year guarantee.

My only small criticism is that they're not dual voltage like GHD, so they won't work in the USA without a transformer. I imagine this is reflected in the difference in price. 5/5

Just purchased these from Amazon, I have fine, shoulder length hair and they work wonders...just stepped out of the salon hair in seconds! NO snagging/pulling in the plates, hair just glides through. They really are excellent and a 5 year guarantee too.

I have had some GHD hair straighteners for two years, but they had started to snag my hair and I noticed my hair was getting in bad condition, (split ends, Breaking etc) so I decided I needed some new ones I was going to go for GHD again but the ones I wanted were over £100, so I looked at reviews for other straighteners, these Babyliss Pro Elegance had some excellent reviews, so I decided to take the plunge and purchase them. I got them for £45 knocked down from £75. Well what can I say, I am really glad I did, they are excellent, they glide through my hair with ease. They have three heat settings and I use them on setting two, I have got longish very wavy hair but it only took me about 15 minutes to do my hair, and I noticed how soft my hair was afterwards. My hair stayed poker straight all night, and I cannot believe that my hair was still straight the next morning. When I used my GHD's my hair used to start going wavy after a couple of hours, and by the next morning you could not tell I had even straightened my hair.
If you want straighteners that do an excellent job at an affordable price I would advise you to buy these, I promise you wont be disappointed. They have also got a 5 year guarantee which is an added bonus.

PROS
1. Heats in less than 20 seconds
2. High temp and relatively broad plates - straightens in maximum two strokes, I usually use it at 200 deg and don't need to go over any section more than twice. So doesn't take me too long to straighten my hair (time: approx 20 mins after drying for my very thick, frizzy and wavy hair)
3. Plates are very smooth - hair does not seem to get caught / brittle EVER - this I think is a big plus. By mistake I went over an uncombed section, still it did not get caught / stuck. I was pleased.
4. Hair remains almost as straight as day 1 for approx 2 more days. Going out in even a bit of rain seems to be a problem though.
5. The heat protection mat / case works very well. I use it all the time. The 4 clips that come with it are quite useful as well in sectioning hair.
6. Plates go till the edge - you can flick it to turn your hair in or out or get a 'volume look' as desired

CONS
1. The negative ion technology does not seem to be very effective - leaves my generally super frizzy hair a little frizzy and not 100% silky unless I go over 4, even 5 times (which I am scared will damage my hair)
2. Hair is super hot right after use even at 200 deg. I touched my just ironed hair (not the iron) and my fingers were almost burnt. Some straighteners offer technology that will not heat up hair as much (sounds a little unbelievable, but if it is true, will be great)
3. I usually have normal hair, but it does look a like dry after using the iron. I am going to start using some leave-in conditioners. Currently I use a heat protection spray only.

Overall: Works quite well. Would highly recommend. It has all that I was looking for from a straightener, though my bar wasn't too high (!
