And any other bits and bobs that help?

Dd is 13 and it's her birthday in 10 days, she wants a hairdryer.

This, to me, is like asking for a Hadron Collider because I've never had one. I don't know what they do. I am a cut it myself, use the cheapest shampoo and wear it in a pony tail kind of person.

Dd has wavy-curly hair, and desperately wants it straight. She has straighteners already.

So, what hairdryer do I need?

I have the ghd air one which I like although it's pricey. Parlux are good too. And blow dry using a round barrel brush (metal or ceramic barrel). I also have wavy hair and to be honest it's the straighteners that make the difference. Make sure she has a set that go up to 235 degrees (Remington, babyliss - not expensive) so it stays straight once done. Ghds etc only go to 180 and my hair is frizzy again within an hour.

I can't blow dry to save my life and I use Babyliss big hair barrel dryer.

Ego professional range is worth looking at.

If second the Ghd air. Comes with 2 models and I have wavy hair which I dry straight. Mine is also very long and thick. I had a mark hill one -'for a couple of months I replaced it with the Ghd as its much more powerful and actually does the job

I have a £20 off discount code for GHD dryers if you do get one.

The best I've owned is an eti turbohaler. They're not mega pricey either for something that gets used by professionals

Hi everyone, thanks for the suggestions, blimeyheck it's a minefield! I went for the Parlux 3800 in the end, as it seemed a midway price range between the sort I'd get for my old barnet and the GHD fantabulous things.

MoBro- thanks very much for the offer, I am not in the UK anyway so it probably wouldn't have been valid flowers
