ghd Air review: Technology

The ghd Air uses a combination of a 2100W at 40V motor and an Ionic heating element that’s been proven to dry hair up to twice as fast as standard hairdryers. The 2100W motor produces instant hot air and a powerful airflow, creating perfect atmospheric conditions to dry your hair quickly. Combine this with the Ionic heating elements – this creates millions of negative ions designed to break down water molecules faster – and you’ve got three proven hair drying techniques working together in the ghd Air hairdryer.

ghd Air review: Design

ghd has also focused on ergonomically designing the Air, making it comfortable to hold and aim while holding in either your left or right hand. It’s also been designed to mute motor noise too, making it one of the quietest hairdryers you can buy. It comes with a lengthy 3m cable for additional practicality. Everything about the ghs Air is well thought-out.

ghd Air review: Settings

When in use there are three different heat setting and two speeds. Giving users total control over heat and airspeed. The Air also comes with a Cool Shot mode. ghd recommends you use this when you’re hair is 90% dry to allow your hair to set using cold air. This will lock in your desired style for longer.
