Want to sell it to me?
I am dying to try one but can't afford to pay £ 40 for one...

That's exactly what I thought when I read your thread title! If there's anyone else out there who's fed up with it too I'll take it off your hands.

Oi! Start your own begging thread! wink

BTW,I meant I'd buy it off you, disappointed peeps. I wasn't after a freebie.

right, put up your dukes, I'll fight you for it grin

We'd end up in a bidding war and paying more than £40!!!

I got one of these a few months ago. Now I can't live without it. Great for long hair looks like salon blow dry. Love love it lots!

I wish you could hire them and try them out!

headfairy Fri 29-Jul-11 20:46:02

me too kyacat it seems such a waste to shell out for something that might not be that brilliant for my hair. Judging by how many are on ebay, quite a few people must decide they're not for them.

Y'know when you go into Currys and try earphones out, they should do that with hair shit.

Heat kills nits, no risk.

What's the problem

Elf n safety gawn mad innit.

Perhaps we should club together to buy one, try it out and pass on to the next person to decide whether they want to buy one... whoever can come up with the best reason can get the trial version at the end for a knock down price grin

If you're expecting lots of volume at the root you will be disappointed
What you get is sleekness and a polished finish..still worth it imo.

headfairy Fri 29-Jul-11 21:20:54

I've long given up on the hope of volume at the roots of my hair ggirl

Mine changed my life.

HoneyDuke Fri 29-Jul-11 21:25:34

I don't want volume I want sleek.
Where are all the people who moaned about their babyliss big hair.
I am serious this is not a joke.

Sorry, I luff mine. Got it for my birthday from DH and it has changed my limp, lifeless hair into sleek, swishy hair (even though I am generally crap at styling my hair). It works for me so I would say it's foolproof. And I'm keeping it, sorry.
