If there’s one beauty guilty pleasure that me and all my friends can collectively admit to, it’s using heat stylers on our hair. But with the GHD Platinum+ being included in one of the best Black Friday deals I’ve come across, we may finally be able to give into the habit without the guilt that comes with it…

GHD has been bringing us the newest in hair technology for circa two decades - and their newest drop is here to help us all style our hair without inflicting all of the usual damage that comes with heat styling.

And while all heat styling will inevitably cause some damage, this clever piece of tech will definitely reduce it and let us feel just that little bit better about hitting the straighteners…

See our full GHD Platinum+ review here

The GHD Platinum+’s predictive technology preheats the tool to a relatively low 185ºC, matching its power to your hair type so that you are not exposing tresses to any unnecessary heat.

Sensors across the plates also work behind the scenes to maintain the styler’s optimum temperature, while the ultra-zone technology ensures that the plates don’t lose heat so that you can be left with a super sleek and straight finish.

Floating plates also stop the tool from dragging your locks and applying excessive damage, while the precision milled coating of the plates gives hair a shiny look.

Locks are left super sleek and shiny, with a straight look actually stays put. And we are in LOVE with the chic design of the straighteners, with its contoured edges and pearly finish that screams luxury.

One for even thick and frizzy hair, this is one worthy investment - especially if you're weighing up the Dyson Corrale vs GHD Platinum as it's £46 off...

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

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...).
