Q:

What is the temperature of GHD straighteners?

A:

Quick Answer

GHD Gold straighteners operate at temperatures of between 347 and 365 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature is hot enough to easily straighten hair with just a few passes, but not hot enough to cause hair damage.

Full Answer

The GHD Gold straightener reaches its optimal temperature in around 40 seconds and users cannot change the temperature. When it gets hot enough, the straightener will beep three times, letting the user know it is ready.

When straightening the hair, the fewer passes it takes to achieve the ideal style, the better it is for the hair. More passes equals more drying. When a straightener reaches 419 degrees Fahrenheit, it causes the hair to melt, and the damage from that cannot be fixed.

    What is the temperature of the continental crust?

    A:

    The temperature of the continental crust varies depending on location and depth; at the surface, the continental crust exists at the same temperature as the outside air, while its inner core reaches temperatures up to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit. The continental crust consists of many levels, and exists on land and underneath the ocean. The top layer of the crust below the ocean floor typically experiences cooler temperatures than the crust forming the ground on land masses, but both have hot inner cores.
