Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TS-2 BIG MINI 230'C (Misc.)
After giving up my GHD's wanting to restrict the amount of damage I was causing my very long, bleached, naturally curly hair, I found myself in a bit of a quandry when I decided to give myself a fringe for a bit of a change. I'd forgotten I'd need straighteners for it & as I'd given the GHD's to my daughter, borrowing them was a bit of a pain, so decided I'd need to invest in my own straightener. Having been incredibly disappointed with my last pair of GHD's (mark iv), they just weren't performing anywhere near as well as my last GHD's (mark 1) & as it's only my fringe that needed straightening I decided to go budget instead. I liked the description of these & figured for a tenner it wouldn't be too bad if they weren't great. But... WOW!!! These are truly great, honestly better than the GHD's! As yet I've only straightened my fringe, but they are much better than my GHD's were & not believing me, my daughter put them to the test doing her whole head & was forced to agree that these were indeed smoother & needed less passes to get a straight result than the GHD's! I can't believe how good these are, both because of the cost & the fact that technically at least they are "mini" straighteners. That said, the hot plates are the same width as normal straighteners & only about 1 inch less in length & as most people tend to only do a 2 inch (max) strip of hair at a time I'm not sure of the need for them to be any longer in the 1st place!
