Glide hot brush ghd

The ghd Glide hot brush for straightening hair is a professional hot brush and styling ceramic hair straightener. Ghd uses ceramic technology combined with an ionizer to tame and smooth hair. The ghd brush is impressive. As well as, the ghd hot brush is well made. But the most extraordinary feature of the ghd hot brush is its simplicity. The ghd is tried and true.

The ghd Glide hot brush claims to transform your hair in seconds and will do it effortlessly and quickly. It uses ceramic technology and an ionizer to do the work. Both technologies combine to give you the best of both worlds and eliminate frizz. One of the secrets of the hot brush is the high-density bristles. And in my opinion, this is critical because it allows for cross-sections of hair to be held, with tension. The tension you get from the bristles allows the hot brush to style your hair. It’s hard to style hair using a brush with little hair tension. Hair falls through quickly and, there is no time for the heat and ions work on eliminating frizz and smoothing hair.

ghd Glide hot brush benefits

The long bristles also have the benefit of penetrating deeper into the hair. Short bristles only scratch the surface and have not as much penetration. And the brush having only short bristles might be OK if you have short hair. Penetration is not that much of a concern for short-haired folks. When using a styling brush, penetration is crucial, and the only way to get penetration is with longer bristles. Those who have longer hair know this well. How many times have you picked up a hairbrush and bristles were short, and maybe even really soft? It is a classic case of a brush with little or no penetration. The ghd hot brush has longer bristles on the edges and shorter ones on the inside of the head. It allows the brush to penetrate thicker, longer hair, and then guide the hair strands through the brush head. This way, the brush head does not have contact with hair, so the heat and ions can straighten hair.

But the extraordinary feature of the bush, in my opinion, is its simplicity. You pick it up, turn in on and start using the hot brush. There is not a temperature setting to worry with. There are no settings you have to pay special attention to and adjust, so you don’t burn your hair. Operational it’s is very simple and, it works. There is no over thinking on how to use the brush or taking time to decide how to set various options. Because there are none! When you turn it on, it automatically heats up to 365 degrees Fahrenheit. It is the sweet spot as far as temperature goes. Not too hot and not too cold. It’s just hot enough to smooth hair but not burn your hair. The temperature setting is designed to make sure you have healthier looking hair. Temperature is vital when styling your hair. Not hot enough and, your style will fall out quickly. Sometimes in a matter of hours. Temperature also depends on how thick your hair is. Thicker hair will need more heat to conform to the style.

ghd Glide hot brush pitfalls

All that said, the brush is not perfect and does have some pitfalls. If you have simplicity, you also lose some important features that some folks may need. For example, the brush heats up to 365 degrees Fahrenheit and, you need more heat, too bad. If you have thick hair, it will take longer to style your hair because thick hair needs more heat. And you are probably not going to get that flat, svelte look you are after without spending a little more time. A flat iron may be best if you fall into this category.

Besides, the brush is an oval head design and is not the most desirable for short hair. So if you have hair that is about three inches long and not any longer using the ghd Glide hot brush is going to be a bit challenging for you. You might be better off looking at a small round hot brush. I know Conair makes one called the “Conair Instant Heat Styling Brush” that works well with short hair. The reason why I mention it is that I like it due to its stunning features like having an insane 25 heat settings. And it ready to use in 60 seconds due to its fast heat up time. The brush comes in two sizes, a 1.25 inch and a ¾ inch, so make sure you get the right size for your length of hair.

Before using the ghd hot brush

Before you use the ghd hot brush, give your hair a spritz of heat protectant spray. Clip and section off hair. This way, those folks with long hair are only working with one hair section at a time. And the hair you are not working on is not in the way. Start with the ghd Glide underneath your hair and lift upward as you brush your hair to the ends. If you like a beveled, soft shape, then turn the brush on its side as you brush towards the ends. When finished, you can end by adding a spritz of hair shine. When you finish, the ceramic and ionic technology will make a believer out of you. Yes, it works.

To reduce the risk of burns while using the ghd Glide:

  1. It's a good idea not to touch the hot brush heater plates.
  2. Also I would not let the hot plates to touch plastics or other heat sensitive materials.
  3. It's a great idea  when you are not styling to lay the ghd glide on a flat heat- resistant surface such as a heat mat.
  4. When you are finished styling always switch off the ghd hot brush and unplug it from the power supply.
  5. Always wait for the ghd hot brush to cool before storing.
  6. Also after styling the plates remain ho so for safe cooling cover the plates with the heat proof plate guard.
  7. When the ghd hot brush has cooled, fold the power cord In the same way as it was delivered. Do not wind it around your hand or the body of the ghd hot brush as this can lead to early failure of the power cord. I know you will be tempted to wind the cord around the handle like I am so use to doing but you will have to remember not to do it.

The ghd Glide safety feature

One of the safty features I like about the ghd is if the ghd hot brush has been left on and has not been used for 60 minutes, it will automatically turn the hot brush off. The hot brush will play a sleep mode tune, the plate will start to cool and the light will slowly pulse till the plate reaches a safe temperature. 

To restart while it is In sleep mode, simply turn it on by pressing and holding down the ON/OFF button for more than 1 second. Please make note although ghd hot brush is turned off, it Is still connected to the power and should be unplugged from the power source, electricity, at the earliest opportunity. In the unlikely event of a control system error, for safety the heaters will turn off. The ghd hot brush will emit bleeps and the light will flash red every five seconds. If this occurs you can try to un-plug and re-plug at the power supply and re-start. And as always contact ghd Customer Service for any advice and the latest information.

How to clean your ghd Glide brush

  1. Unplug the ghd hot brush from the power supply.
  2. Always allow the ghd hot brush to cool before attempting to clean.
  3. Never immerse the appliance in water.
  4. Remove all hair from in between the bristles after every usage. Wipe dean any build-up of styling products with a damp cloth or soft brush  but do not scrub. do this for both the bristles and heater plate.
  5. Do not use an abrasive cleaning fluid to clean your brush.

How to store your ghd Glide brush

  1. Always allow the ghd hot brush to cool down before storing away. Never store a brush while its still hot.
  2. When the ghd appliance has cooled down, fold the power cord in the same way as it came packaged. Do not wrap the supply cord around the ghd Glide brush handle.

ghd brush conclusion

The results are great for the majority of folks. Using the brush for you guys will be perfect. And the best thing about the ghd Glide is its simplicity. It, in my opinion, is worth having. It’s going to be hard to beat a high-quality simple to use a hot hairbrush. And at the end of the day, your hair is going to be healthier due to it is not pressed between two pieces of hot ceramic plates. You will experience less breakage, split-ends, and no hot spots on your hair. Your ears will thank you after purchasing the ghd Glide hot brush. Your ears will not miss being burned every once in a while. The main thing to remember is not to overdo it because too much of almost anything can be dreadful.
