I am thinking about getting the babyliss but hair, but at nearly 50 quid it is a risky purchase as it may just be pants for me/my hair. I have seen something similar from Tresemme for about half the price. I wondered if anyone had tried any such cheaper alternatives and how were they?
I am sooo tempted by the Babyliss but have tried a rotating haircrush thingy that you used with your own hairdryer (rubbish!) and remember the hot air stylers of the 1980s (also rubbish!) so have been holding back. DD tried cheaper straighteners but nothing works like GHDs
Personally I think cheaper versions are often cheaper for a reason
Definatly get one, my hair is thick, heavy and straight, so a nightmare at adding any kind of volume to it, but i did this and it lasted till dinner time, believe me thats a miracle for me, i spend all evening curling my hair to leave 5 mins later with poker straight hair. the best purchase i have ever made!
if you search the next couple of pages there is another thread from last week about this too
Would heartily recommend - super product, always feels more groomed. had mine 6 months, however it blew up yesterday! 3 year guarantee is great, but temped to buy another whilst I wait for replacement (bought from Amazon), really don't want to be without it. I have very thick just on shoulder length hair.
