GHD launches new hot brush tool that promises to double volume in hair


GHD has launched a brand new hot brush tool for hair that promises twice the volume. Cult hair tool brand GHD has been living up to its name and bringing us all good hair days for nearly two decades now, with their bestselling stylers and some of the best hair straighteners we've ever come across.

They have saved all of our frizz-cursed locks with their extensive and constantly expanding range of intelligent straightening irons, which includes the gorgeous new range of pink GHD tools, and of course their GHD Curve line of hair curling tongs and wands, which gave us a trusty way to finally get the curls and waves of our dreams.

And now the brand is here to do it again with its newest offering.

Last year then saw the brand come out with their first ever hot brush, the GHD Glide.

The clever tool was so groundbreaking when it launched that it has been labelled as ‘the brush that broke the internet’, giving hair fans the chance to learn how to blow dry hair to salonesque standards from the comfort of their own dressing tables.

And now the brand has dropped a brand new hot brush to expand on the success of the Glide brush.

GHD Rise Hot Brush: What you need to know about the new launch


How does the GHD Rise hot air brush work?

Rather than infusing heat into a normal paddle brush shape, the new GHD Rise adds heat to a clever barrel brush.

With the appearance of a snazzy hair salon-only tool, the hot barrel brush lets users add volume and bounce to their hair, with 80 per cent of consumer testers agreeing that the brush gave them these expected results.

As the brand’s first smart hot brush, the tool uses special technology alongside nylon bristles to lift the hair at the root and leave a blow-dried look without damaging your locks.

No matter what your hair type and length is, the brush will allow you to create relaxed waves, trendy flicks or glamourous curls without any unnecessary difficulty or faff.

GHD Rise review: Is it worth the investment?

Customers have been blown away by the new GHD Rise hot air brush, with the product being met with a stream of five-star reviews just days after launching.

'I am very impresed with this volumising hot brush,' wrote one fan. 'Lightweight with a great long handle and a decent tip told whilst styling.

'It gives brilliant root lift and shine to my hair even after drying it straight The results are phenomenal, leaving me looking as though I had just left the salon'.

'The product does what it says on the box, gives your hair added volume,' commented another customer. 'I was worried that my hair would tangle easy when using the brush but that was not the case, it glides easy through my hair. I also found that it eliminates frizz which is a bonus as I have natural frizzy hair'.

Another agreed, 'I’ve used this product a few times now and I’m really pleased with the results.

'It’s really easy to use, just switch on and go. My hair is really fine and I found it just gave it that lift and body without the time and hard work I would usually spend'.

Where can I buy the GHD Rise hot air brush?

Beauty fans wanting to get hold of the GHD Rise brush can shop for it in a number of online retailers.

As well as the brand's own website, the GHD Rise tool is also available on Look Fantastic, Cult Beauty, Selfridges and John Lewis websites.

It'll set you back £169, but we think it's worth it considering the amazing results that are said to come from it.

The tool launched earlier this week, just in time for a pre bank-holiday at-home blow dry...

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
