    5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny! 10 Dec 2009
    By Manders
    Colour Name:Red
    After reading up on these I decided to give them a go as I can't really afford to replace mybeloved GHDs right now. Got them at about 50% off but to be honest they're so good I would happily pay full price. They heat up in no time at all & the great thing is you can control the temperature, so I use them on the highest setting for most of my hair & then turn them low to do my fringe, where my hair is finer for some reason. I also only had to run through my hair once, to get it poker straight, and it STAYS straight throughout the day. For reference I'm mixed race & so have thick coarse hair. Oh, & curling hair is a dream with these as the whole red shiny outer bit is so sleek it doesn't drag on your hair. These are excellent straighteners, at an affordable price & I'm so glad I gave them a chance - money well spent!

    5.0 out of 5 stars just as good as ghd 14 Jan 2011
    By mrs d
    Colour Name:Red
    My beloved GHD's packed in a few weeks before christmas, and these straightners were on offer, so i got a pair to last me until after christmas. They are just as good as GHD's and im going to save my money and not bother getting new GHD's. I have always had GHD's and cant quite believe these are as good as them and cheaper too. I have recomended these to all of my friends!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very professional! 3 Jan 2011
    Colour Name:Red
    I received this item, along with others in the range, for Christmas last year. They looked very professional in the packaging, and they performed very professionally on my hair! The first thing I tried was straightening; a task which would usually take me 30-45 minutes with my older Remington straightener. With the DesiREDs, it took me about 15-20 minutes; cutting the time by over half, brilliant! The thin-max setting for your hair is also great, as with my old straightener (where I had to digitally pick the temperature) I had no idea which setting was right for my hair type. Meaning it was often so straight it looked greasy, not straight enough so that it was curly by the end of the day, and also it would smell slightly burned. But with this product, it has made such a difference! My hair looks glossy and professionally styled, I used to think straight hair was dull and flat but this straightener makes it look so healthy, I've already has lots of comments on my 'new cut'... I've not had my hair cut in months!
    The second thing I tried with this straightener was curling. It's even better than straightening! The curved sides to the straightener make it very easy and it does not pull or grab your hair like others often do. It glides through as softly as it does when you're straightening it, and doesn't really take too long. (I find it a very good idea to set it to one setting up from what you straighten with, as it gives more of a solid ringlet). I must be honest and say that i've curled my hair more than I've straightened it with this straightener! I have some Nicky Clarke curlers still in the box because this product has been so useful.
    I definitely recommend this straightener, it looks great, it performs great, and it will make you look great! Buy it before it becomes discontinued!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best straighteners ever!!! 19 Jan 2010
    Colour Name:Red
    These straighteners are great. Very shiny and sleek and look salon quality. Very long lead which is a relief. I've had straighteners that I have struggled to reach my head with!!!!
    My daughter and myself use them. I have thick, difficult to style hair and hers is fine, but these straighteners work equally well on both types.
    They are a qaulity item at a great price.

    5.0 out of 5 stars amazing. 29 Jan 2012
    Colour Name:Red
    I had used many of my friends pairs of ghds, therefore I asked for some ghds for Christmas. However my mum sugested desired straighteners as they were a fraction of the price and the reviews were excellent. Desired straighteners are better than any pair of ghds that I have ever used , my hair (which is very thick) stays perfectly straight until I wash it. I strongly recomend these straighteners.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good pair of straighteners 26 Aug 2010
    By Philip VINE VOICE
    Colour Name:Red|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    A review from the wife for these...

    These straighteners are very good. As described on the box, they are super fast to heat up so there is no need to wait around for pre-heating. Just plug in and go! There are four hair settings labelled Fine, Medium, Thick and Max which determine the heat for your kind of hair. This is fairly useful if you don't want to be second guessing what the best heat for your hair is but may be restricting if you have always used a set temperature to straighten your hair before.

    I tried these straighteners both to straighten and to curl my hair. Straightening was very quick given the high heat produced. I have very thick, long hair and I had it all straightened within 10 - 15 minutes. I had never used straighteners to curl my hair before but found these to do the job very well indeed, producing big bouncy curls. These curls unfortunately didn't hold for very long but this is probably because I did not use any hair spray to keep them in place. Use of heat protection lotion is certainly recommended as my hair felt slightly dry after an first initial short use without any serum.

    Another advantage for the travellers among us that they come with automatic worldwide voltage which means you can safely use them in a 110V country as well.

    Overall, a really good product which I would certainly recommend. They may not produce quite the same extreme smoothing effect as GHDs but they are close enough and given the price difference between these and the GHDs, I would certainly choose these!
