I got these straighteners off my Husband as a gift, and I have had them at least 4-5 years now......They Are excellent straighteners so much so I am trying to get another pair for my Mum for Christmas as she borrows mine because they are better than her GHD's As well. In comparison when I straighten with my GHD's my hair always frizzes as the day goes on, but not with my trusty Babyliss ones.... THEY ARE A MUST!!! (read more)

I was very pleased with this straightener for a long time. It was very effective.
I used them last Thursday and they burnt my hair. My hair went from silky smooth to coarse and dry. I tried all sorts of hair repair products but the hair was too damaged and resulted in me having to make an emergency trip the hair dressers to have 4 inches cut off. I still have about 2 inches of frizz so cannot do anything with it and will have to return to the hair dresser in 6 weeks to have more cut... (read more)

I thought they were alright at first(they were brilliant in comparising to my old straighteners)but it makes your hair feel dry and damaged after a while even when using heat protection spray
suppose there worth the money as they are quite cheep but pay a little extra and you will get more value
overall you could do better but not bad (read more)

After about a year and a half of being used they have began to not work. Every time they are pressed onto the hair the red light that signalises they are on goes off. This means losing heat and it takes alot longer to straighten my hair. I then have to switch the straighteners back on by the button, therefore losing more time while being very annoying.
I would recommend these because overall they are very good straighteners however, mine broke after a year or so. (read more)

Overall I think the straightners are very good. They straighten hair very well and keep it straight for a long period of time unlike other straighteners I have used in the past. (read more)

I think the BaByliss Pro 230 Straightner is a highly recommended buy with a low cost and should be up there at no.1 with the GHD (which i think should be at no.6 in the top straightners list). Overall hopefully the straightner will bring you as much joy as it has to me.
Thanks for reading. (read more)

After reading loads of reviews I decided to get the BaByliss 2085U Pro 230 C Straighteners, I'm so glad I did. These straighten my hair really well, leaves it shiny, they don't snag my hair unless I put to much hair in to be straightened and don't slide it down my hair straight but at a angle. I have no faults with these they are Fab!
They come with a 5 year guarantee, no worries! (read more)

I used it at my cousins house and they made a piece of my hair straight in one stroke. My GHD had broke after 3 years just a week before I tried babyliss, my sister still thinks Ghds are better because her hairs thick and curly however the reviews on here show that the babyliss does that job well. My parents are still buying one. There much more cheaper and the jobs thumbs up! Thanks to all your reviews I am finally getting one. (read more)

These straighteners are amazing! They make your hair very straight and shiny and because you can control the temperature, you can choose the best temperature for your hair!

Contacted the customer care department,who requested straighteners to be sent to them to be checked. They have advised there was a problem with a fault with an internal component. They have offered a full refund,if you have any problems go to the babyliss website then email the customer care team. (read more)

I first got these straighteners as a Christmas present last year. I didn't really want them but as I had received them as a present i decided to not give them away. I had seen the advert on tv for them and i had thought they were great. They were great at first but then 6- 7 months within having them, they sort of stopped straightening my hair. I began straightening my hair, and then they would leave it straight for a few minutes. But then as i started moving my hair did not stay straight... (read more)

I had a pair of GHD's and they were the best - but no more! Babyliss 230 are fantastic. They do the job and my hair which is prone to frizzing in damp air - doesn't! How fabulous is that! Love them, Love them! (read more)

WOW!! These Babyliss Pro 230oC are fantastic!! I had previously owned a pair of GHD'S but must say they are not a patch on these. The GHD'S are too over hyped and expensive and seem to make your hair thicker.. Babyliss makes thick curly hair sleek and straight and lasts for days. These babies are hotttt! (read more)

Don't want to bash GHD but I think they're a bit over hyped and not worth the extra money. These babyliss ones come in a fair bit cheaper and do the job better. My hair is long, very thick and curly - plus a bit on the dry side - so the less time I need to hammer it with straighteners the better. These do the job in half the time of my GHDs. I don't know what the cheaper (non ionic) version are like but I've read some favorable reviews of those. I would definitely recommend these ones though. (read more)

The BaByliss 2085U Pro 230 C Straightener is the first hair straightener I have owned. I did a lot of research before I bought it. A lot of reviews said it was the best for value, and sometimes even better than GHD's. I ordered it last week off Amazon for an amazing price of £39!! (Boots is offering it for the same price). When I got it, I opened it and used it straight away! I have used it a couple of times now, and I think it's great!! My hair is short but really thick, and this... (read more)

I had previously only bought GHD's, and two pairs later I decided to have a look around at some alternatives due to the price of GHD's. Both pairs of GHD's broke on me.
I looked around and decided to go for the Babyliss 2085U Pro 230 C Straighteners, and I have been very pleased with the results. They are much nicer to use than GHD's, and I don't have to clamp them shut when using them. They glide nicely over my hair, and I can straighten all my very curly hair in just twenty minutes,...

I love the BaByliss 2085U Pro 230 C Straighteners!! I can't believe I have been struggling on with my old ones for so long! I thought I could never afford decent straighteners, but these leave my hair just like I have just been to the hairdressers...every day!!! And they are so quick and easy to use, and the effects last!
If I have a criticism it would be that I tend to push the off button accidentally while I'm styling, but they are so quick to heat up again, it doesn't really matter. I... (read more)

OK, So they are cheap! What else do they do? Nothing? I've had mine for over a year now. I paid about £40 for them in Boots, I think. They do warm up quickly, so that is a good point.
Only ... They heat up so much that you can't touch them without burning your hand! They have this protective material where the Ceramic is, but it's a nightmare! You can't even put your hand anywhere near it without getting a blister.
Also, I have VERY thick hair, and when straightening it I get all sweaty... (read more)

So much better than GHD's!! I got rid of my GHD's as I found they were just too hot for my hair- flattened it so much it looked awful, lost all the body and bounce and the ends started to fry!
So I've been looking for another pair of hair friendly straighteners for a while. These are absolutely fantastic!!! Much, much better than GHD's and a quarter of the price! I paid £30 for mine and they are a total bargain. I love that you can adjust the temperature, so your hair is super straight but... (read more)

Wow!!!! I got them home after buying them, and I rapidly opened the box; I was so excited about getting a new pair of hair straighteners haha.

It definitely wasn't a struggle straightening my curly wog! I think they're amazing! My hair was straightened all over within 15 minutes. It also wasn't a struggle doing the... (read more)

I have owned the BaByliss 2085U Pro 230 C hair straighteners for nearly a year, and I have found them a lot easier than past hair appliances I have used. I bought mine for £30, and they are definitely worth their money. 230 degrees ensures that you will have a long lasting, high quality style.
It was only a month ago when I noticed that my hair straighteners were not that attractive. Some girls pay so much money to buy expensive hair straighteners that look nice, but don't actually do the... (read more)
