LOVE THEM.....not so much anymore
on 15 February 2014
These are absolutely amazing! After returning the Remington Keratin Therapy Hair Straightener (they really didn't work for my hair type) I ordered these instead, still not wanting to splash out on another pair of GHD's. These are just as good as my GHD's were! Better actually, since these do the job at a lower temperature than GHD's (I never knew how much of an advantage being able to control the temperature was!). I have long, damaged and very very frizzy hair and these straighten my hair in 15 minutes (get rid of most frizz in 10 when I'm not too fussy about how straight it is) which only GHD's (the ones with the thicker plate, not the normal ones) were able to do in the past. I know a lot of people have said that these break quite quickly (the reason that I chose the keratin therapy over these in the first place) but they have a five year guarantee so I'm not that bothered if they do. The heat proof mat and case is also an added bonus so that you can store them away nicely and not have to worry about burning your bed. They heat up super quick, faster than my GHD's did.
Overall I love these straighteners and would recommend them to a friend anyday!
EDIT JUNE 2014: after going to the hair dressers the other day I was talking about how much more damaged my hair has become and she said that it may be due to the new straighteners. Thinking back now, that is when my hair became worse, suggesting that these straighteners have dried my hair severely and caused so many split ends that I'm am going to have to buy a new pair of GHD's in the end anyway. I wish that I had just bought them in the first place.
