They are brill
Wide ceramic plates
Funcky red
They steam (if you want to use it) so don't get that obvious hair that has just been straightened dry look
Have little fins that comb as you straighten (if you want)
Het up to 230 in seconds
Come in cool red pouch with heat proof mat
and are currently on OFFER AT AMAZON from £99 down to £28!!!

Just as good as GHDs, but better because of the price!

Have been looking for straighteners so will give these a go - nice price and reviews look good. Thanks

Yes, it was the reviews that swung it for me.
Hope you like them - I live the steam option, makes big difference!

Thanks for that recommendation Freckles, I have just ordered them. Excellent price.

I already have some Babyliss Pro 230 straighteners, that are a few years old now, so know how good they are. I have also had GHDs and sent them back as I think that the Babyliss ones are better and a fraction of the price.

Thanks smile

How do these work on curly hair? Steam and curls sounds like a problem but I'm wondering if it does actually work. confused

Also have you got a link to them, I can't find them but am probably being an idiot! grin

The steam just gives a more shiny smooth finish if you use it. I have fragile hair so suits me.

You are welcome winetime

Bargain! I have these already or I'd buy them again grin

I've got quite thick, curly hair and they work a treat. I haven't been using them long so haven't actually tried the steam function yet. I might have a go this weekend.

I've just ordered some, thank you Freckles! grin

Now I'll give my old GHD's to my mum and she'll be pleased too. Perfect!

Oooo...I have an old bog standard pro230....

Worth upgrading?

I've got these (got them in boots half price last year - wish I'd got them for £28!) and they are fantastic, easily as good as GHDs. I have very thick curly hair & they make it very straight but soft & natural looking. I love them, definitely recommend!
