I'm a GHD girl, very very thick wild bush head hair GHD's changed my life . I've gone short (well shortest I've ever been) inverted Bob razored at the back, longer on top with side fringe and around my face. GHD still good but I need like babyliss big hair (that was useless when my hair was long) but a smaller barrel. Much smaller. I don't want curl I want the smooth/blow dried look. Shorter hair is sooo much quicker to dry/straighter I can't believe no more 45 mins each day! Still don't recognise myself without long hair
It sounds as if I have the same hair cut as you. Very short at the back and longer at the sides and on top. You have to dry the shorter hair with a vented brush and then rough dry all over with a hairdryer, When almost dry, use your products and use the hot brush only on the lengths.I then use my GHD's to smooth the lengths and put in velcro rollers. I don't know about the Braun cordless I'm afraid. If it's the one that uses/used to use a gas canister I had one many moons ago.
