To achieve straight, sleek locks:

Lightly mist hair with GHD Thermal Protector then use a little GHD Obedience Cream (pictured).
Open the iron and place a section of dry hair between the plates.
Ensure that the iron is as close to the root as possible before closing the plates.
Gently move the iron downward - from root to tip - in one simple gliding motion.
Repeat the process for each section of hair, gliding once from roots to ends.
 
GHD makes a protectant for every hair type - check them out here: GHD Thermal Protectants.
 
 
GHD Thermal ProtectorTo achieve stunning curls:
Lightly mist hair with GHD Thermal Protectant (pictured).
Section the hair, and lightly dab some Obedience Cream to secure hold when creating each curl.
Position the iron vertically, 1 inch away from the root.
Gently close the iron with minimum tension.
Turn the iron 90° clockwise and continue to turn the iron another 90°.

For an intense, S-shaped, vertical curl, pull the iron very slowly away from the head in a continuous smooth movement.

 
To complete the style, repeat for all sections.
Finally, separate and dress the curls with your fingers.
