Our opinion on the GHD Gold Max Styler straightener

We have already analyzed what we consider the five best GHD hair straighteners, but in this article, we will go into more detail on one model in particular, the GDH Gold Max: one of the best-selling models of the GHD brand.

Introducing the GHD Gold Max Styler Straightener

It is a high-end straightener that, as the name suggests, is a hybrid that takes the best from the GHD Gold and GHD Max.

GHD Gold Max vs. GHD Max

Unlike the GHD Max, the GHD Gold Max incorporates the dual temperature sensor, which it borrows from the Gold model: it is particularly useful for better thermal control to protect your hair from the heat, as it ensures that its two plates are permanently maintained at 180º.

On the other hand, unlike the GHD Gold, the Gold Max has wider plates, which “copy” the Max Styler model. Regular hair straighteners are about 2.5 cm, while this model is 5 cm, allowing you to style a larger section of hair more easily. In short, it will save you a lot of time.

GHD Gold Max: technical details and features

Like the rest of the brand’s models, the GHD Gold Max has two ceramic plates that evenly distribute the heat. In this case, as we have pointed out, thanks to its double sensor, this control is done on both plates.

While the GHD Original or GHD Max only has one sensor, this model has two, allowing us to maximize temperature control.

On the other hand, along with titanium, ceramic is one of the best materials a hair straightener can incorporate, as it provides good glide on the hair.

As we mentioned above, the most important differential feature of this GDH model is the width of its plates, which, with their 5 cm, allow you to straighten large amounts of hair in fewer passes and, therefore, in less time.

On the other hand, we also appreciate that this model has a lighter design, which facilitates handling, allowing us to handle the straightener serenely during styling.

In addition, unlike other cheaper straightener models of the brand, it includes a plate protector, which facilitates storage and protects your straightener so that it lasts longer, like the first day.

It also has other features common to all other GHD models, but no less remarkable:

  • Fast heating: it only takes 30 seconds to reach the right temperature. In the case of GHD, this temperature is unique and constant at 185°C, an optimal temperature that allows obtaining results without damaging the hair.
  •  Rounded edges: will allow you to create curls and waves with a natural finish.
  •  Universal voltage: especially useful if you take it on a trip.
  •  Sleep function: automatically turns off after 30 minutes of inactivity.
  •  Long cord: for easy styling and good handling.

Our opinion on the GHD Gold Max Styler straightener

This straightener is recommended for people with thickcurly, and long hair.

We recommend it above all for its smoothing function (and not for waves). Why? Because if, as we have said, its rounded edges allow for creating waves without any problemits wider plates only allow for creating large waves, and therefore we see a more limited use in this aspect.

Regarding the comparison between this model and the Max Styler, we recommend this dual-sensor model for people who want to optimize the care of their hair:

  • Either because they have abused them very much with dyes, wicks, the sun, or abrasive products
  •  Or because they want to prevent the damage caused by the intensive use of this type of hairdressing tools that apply a significant source of direct heat (hair dryers, curling irons, straighteners).
