This review is from: Remington S9500 Pearl Hair Straightener (Personal Care)
I am not one for writing reviews unless something is really good or really awful so I felt compelled to write about these straighteners. I hummed and ha'd for ages about getting new ones - I have always had GHDs, they're good at what they do but I was fed up of replacing them every couple of years. I read the reviews for these Remington ones and still was not sure what to do. Then I saw them on offer and thought I might as well get them. They are AMAZING!
I have short-ish bobbed hair that needs daily styling. Since using these, people have commented that my hair seems so much sleeker and I have fewer wispy, broken strands. Because you can choose the temperature setting, I can control how much damage I am doing. I only heat them right up for an event or a long day. For weekends, I just use a low setting to avoid scorching my hair unnecessarily. Like everything, they take a bit of getting used to - I have burned my hands a couple of times but I remember doing that when I first got GHDs! Their shape means that you can get right up close to the roots and the 11cm plates are great for getting the job done quickly!
In summary, if like me you have short, bobbed hair, I would strongly recommend. I can't comment on their performance on longer hair but from my experience of them so far, I believe they would be great.
I would gladly give them more stars, I am one very happy GHD-convert :O)
