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.

    How fast does frostbite occur?

    A:

    The rate of which frostbite occurs will depend on the temperature and the wind speed; however, in temperatures that are considered to be extremely cold, which depending on these two factors can be anywhere from -32 to -72 degrees Fahrenheit, exposed skin is vulnerable to frostbite after approximately 10 minutes and in temperatures that are considered to be frigidly cold, which is anywhere from -48 to -98 F with higher wind speeds, exposed skin can become frostbitten in as little as 5 minutes, as reported by the National Weather Service. Wind chill is dependent on the temperature and the wind speeds, and quicker wind speeds can help accelerate the rate of frostbite.
