My hair holds a curl but I don't like really tight curls so I use my ghds to curl. This is fine BUT I have a lot of hair so it takes ages.. i remember years ago using those heated long foam things you fold and bend, and using heated rollers and my hair would look a crazy uneven birds nest. Is there any new alternatives that would give the sort of curl you can get from ghds please?
I have a large heated brush which l find brilliant and very easy . Can't remember the make but will look later. It wasn't expensive around twenty quid about ten years ago. I have a lot of hair too and using thus is just like brushing it and l get that lovely big bouncy curls look or can be used just to straighten hair and is nowhere near as harsh as plate straighteners on the hair. I have a ceramic set of them but damage my hair if used too much .
I bought this the other day. It is a bit fiddly to begin with, but once you get the hang of it it does give a nice wave. You need to buy the handle as well so in total it cost around £28. Not sure if it will be any quicker than curling with GHDs though.
No they don't in fact my hair has a slight curl when wet and if dried naturally looks OK but minute l brush it looks a frizzy mess but if l use this brush after brushing through with a normal brush and l always wait for my hair to dry before using it ( or suppose you could dry with a hairdryer first ) It really smooths it and it has a quick release buttton in case you get it tangled but l never have to use tha. Will post make later but unsure if can still get it as was a long time ago.
