GVP Flat Iron Reviews: is it Really a Value?

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. For more information, see our disclosure.

For GVP Flat Iron Reviews, it’s worth noting that the brand’s initials stand for Generic Value Products, which is associated with Sally’s Beauty Supply. Sally’s is probably best known to the average consumer as a place where professional stylist can pick up salon quality products, but anyone is welcome to shop with them. It’s actually a great resource to start looking for products if you want to get serious about your hair.

In this case, the question is whether or not the digital ceramic flat iron is actually a value or not. While it’s impossible to say that any device will work for everyone in all cases, I can say that this device has some helpful features that I think most users would appreciate, and the price point seems pretty fair. For a more detailed information, check out the full review below.

Features Overview:

  • Titanium infused ceramic plates
  • Lightweight
  • Auto Shut Off
  • 450 degrees Fahrenheit maximum temperature

Notable Features:

Titanium infused Ceramic

In this case, the important features of titanium are its durability and heat transfer. Titanium is more durable than ceramic in terms of maintaining its smoothness, which is good since you won’t have to worry as much about the plates chipping, or having your hair snag on the surface after repeated use.

The heating capabilities are another aspect of titanium that I like. For one, titanium is better than ceramic at getting heat off the device and into your hair. This means that you’ll get a good hold on your style, and that you should be able to achieve it faster.

The other capability I like is that titanium can sustain higher temperatures. It can handle a higher range of heat than ceramic, and it can also stay hot for a longer time.

Of course, the downside of titanium is that it doesn’t heat evenly. It’s very easy for the plates to develop hotspots, which can cause damage to your hair. Ceramic on the other hand, does heat evenly When using ceramic plates, you can be sure that there won’t be the same wild fluctuations in the temperature along the plate’s surface.

By combining these materials, you should get some benefits from each of them. Ideally, you’d get a device with good heat transfer, that can sustain high temperatures, and keep those temperatures steady during use.

Lightweight

Another feature that I like about this device is the fact that’s lightweight. This seems like a small touch, but it can make a difference in how you feel about your device. Even with thin or fine hair, styling can take a bit of time, especially when you want your hair perfectly, pin straight. In these cases, having a lighter device is just easier to manage. You don’t have to worry as much about exhausting your arms. It’s also easier to maneuver, since a lot of styling is done with the straightener firmly in one hand.

Review

Given the price point and the features, I would recommend this as a good choice for a mid-range device. If you’re not comfortable with the price tag associated with a high-end device, but don’t really want to play less than twenty dollars for something either, then this device is a good starting point.

To me, it seems like they put work into making the device usable for multiple hair types, which I appreciate. It’s really difficult to make a device that works for a wide range of people, or even one that works for people with medium hair, who might find that devices that are more polarized aren’t effective. I like this device as that sort of middle ground, or more generalized option.

However, because the two materials are so different, you might be better off buying on or the other if your hair falls under the extreme for either type or texture. Very fine hair would probably be better served by a lower temperature range ceramic tourmaline device, while very coarse hair would probably need undiluted titanium.

And also, since the device does fall into what I would consider to be a mid-range price point, I think it is worth taking a moment to consider springing for a more expensive device. In some cases, you won’t be paying that much more for features that can be more tailored to your needs or hair type.

Overall though, I do like this device. I think the price is far, and the features are thoughtful. That’s really what anyone would want in a straightener.

If you’re still curious and would like to know more about this device or others like it, I recommend checking out the Sally’s Beauty website to see the full range of options from this line. You can find the website here.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for a nice middle ground with your straightener, then this option is a good place to start. The price point as well as the features should serve a wide range of needs. That said, anyone with particularly stubborn or delicate hair may need to look elsewhere. And if you can squeeze a bit more from your budget, it’s a good idea to look at some devices at a higher price point as well. All told, based on the GVP flat iron reviews completed here, I feel the device is worth considering.
