I used a big ol' Remington Wet-to-Straight straightener for years, it was the only thing that would get through my hair. I then cut my hair back in 2015 and after years of burning it to a crisp with the Remington I started my search for the best straightener (that wouldn't damage my hair further) and stumbled across this one.
I really liked the idea that it would maintain a constant heat of 185°C and not ruin my hair, and I had so many friends that recommended GHDs, so I took the leap of faith and purchased one online.
When it came in the mail I was super excited, and instantly fell in love with the box, case, heat-protecting mat and of course the hair straightener itself, just looking at it felt like it was worth the money I paid for it, and after running it through my hair I was very very pleased with my purchase!
I was really impressed by the cute turn on chime and the fast heat up time and how it made my hair shiny and glided through like it wasn't an issue, made me realise that I should've made the switch long before!
It's almost been 4 years since I purchased this and it still looks like new (I'm not an everyday/week straightener, maybe a few times a month?) and I know that when I need to repurchase one of these I won't second guess the price—take the leap, do it!
