GHD vs. CHI ?Compare the score

The topic GHD vs. CHI is highly intriguing as both do very well in flat iron reviews and ratings and also both seem to have a loyal customer base, so to compare both this hair straightener and judging and marking one of them as superior over the other is not an easy job to accomplish. Let us compare both these hair straightener based on the design, technology, power supply, heating time and the price and see which hair straightener scores the maximum.

?Let us find the difference based on the design. The CHI Turbo flat iron has been re-designed with an ergonomic handle that enables easier grip making the process of hair straightening less tiring. Even there are some drawbacks and they are that they are not so stylish and the controls are found on the side of the grip that might make it easier to turn on/off etc. but might sometime seem to get in the way and you can accidentally turn them on/off when using it while the new GHD Mk4 are stylish in their new sleek design and is better than that of the CHI Turbo flat iron with their control set on the top side of the bottom of the rounded barrel grip, due to which they are on the inside. So you can say that GHD Mk4 scores the maximum.

?The next scoring category is the technology in which hair straighteners from GHD and CHI are technically efficient in their own way. Both of them are the technical innovators in the manufacture of flat irons. Where GHD brought about a revolution with the adoption of ceramic heating element and plates there CHI was popular with the integration of ‘Nano Silver’ technology, that helps the CHI flat iron to out perform other brands and also sterilize and kill bacteria. Here both of them score more or less the same.

?Next let us find out the difference between the two hair straightener with regard to the power supply. Here in this category CHI wins with its 10 foot power cord over 9 foot power cord of GHD and uses only 20-25 Watts of electricity, which is said to be less than the GHD Mk4 flat iron and so it is cheaper to run. On the other hand GHD wins this category with its two additional features that may be useful for only some and they are auto multi-voltage for International use and a sleep mode that turns the flat iron off when not in used for 30 minutes.

?The time taken to heat up is another category where we can find the difference. Both the hair straightener takes the same time to heat up but both have variable heat control. In this category GHD scores the maximum with regards to temperature control.

?The last category to differentiate between the two is the price. In few words it could be explained that if you want to get the best you have to pay for it and the price differs with the brand, features and functions. It is simply hard to justify which is the best on this ground.

Now coming to the conclusion it could be said that it is hard to comment on which the best hair straightener is. Since going through the customer reviews both have loyal and happy customers and honestly there are owners of one flat iron who switch over to the other but they are few in numbers so it is difficult to suggest which to purchase. So the decision is left with you.
