They just sound so fantastic, I can't believe they work! Mind you I thought that about GHDs too and if the house was burning down I would have to think twice about whether to rescue my family or my ghds
I want to know if it is really quick or do you just spend hours straightening instead of drying?
i got my dh to buy me them when they first came out. they dry your hair really quickly and at first i was thrilled with the result, i thought i'd be able to throw my hairdryer away! only problem is, you can't get too close to the root or you burn your head (ouch) and therefore end up with wet roots that need blasting with the dryer. that in itself wasn't so bad. I also found even though they claim to seal in moisture, my hair ended up really brittle and lifeless looking. I like straight hair but with a bit of body, whereas these just completely flattened it. I've got bleached hair anyway so am maybe not the best person to have tried them. TBH I tend not to use them to dry now, but just straighten and at £85 they were quite pricey.
sounds perfect to me as my hair is really thick and i do not like body! i like it completely flat. do you think they would be ok for use say every once a month? thats all i really go out now. my hair is bleached highlights so i dont tend to even use the hairdryer now if i can get away with it.
GHD's are the most important thing in my house, much more important than the tv, or the washing machine. I love my GHD's more than certain members of my family and certainly more than certain memebers of dp's family
My DDs got GHDs from us for Christmas. They have both had at least 2 different cheaper ones before. When they started using the GHDs (instantly! They were out of the box and plugged in within seconds!) they both sounded like the fake orgasm in When Harry Met Sally. They are that good, apparently
I got theirs from Lookfantastic.com - you have to register as a member but then they are £88, which is quite a good price anyway and includes a £9 bottle of thermal protection spray and 4 of those metal sectioning clips. (You can get mini ones for less.)
i got vidal sassoon straighteners for christmas and the effect is fab..but..i am now addicted and my hair looks even more super crap when i don't use them!
Not sure whether they are damaging my hair or whether i am noticing now that i am doing more with my hair but i seem to have loads of little bitty bits (broken off hair ??? don't know) i have been putting serum on. Does anyone have any advice about this for me? is it the straighteners?
