I have the gas straighterers. I had them for when I was weeks in hospital and they wouldn't let me use my GHD's (no idea why!). They are ok but not great. If you have very fine hair they'll do but thick hair and they can't cope.
Ah, well if it's just your fringe that needs straightening, you should be fine with cordless straighteners! Just thinking though - where will you plug your hair dryer in (or will you be letting your hair dry naturally)?
I've got some cordless gas ones that are completely useless. I've had mine a few years but the up to date reviews for them on Amazon are still pretty mediocre. I keep retrying mine in the vain hope they've miraculously improved but they are still useless. I've been looking at the car ones and am planning on getting those, the reviews are good and they arent expensive.
And what's wrong with wanting to look nice when camping? I had my nails done just before going camping this holiday, they didn't impede me putting up the tent on my own and they toned nicely with my onesie
Thanks everyone, I appreciate the helpful responses. I haven't been camping since I was nine & I wasn't keen on it then . I want to give it another go but don't want to do it looking like a wild woman of the woods. I wouldn't need to wash my hair as it would just be overnight stays in a campervan on weekends.
