I have naturally curly hair so I cant live without hair straighteners! I have been using hair straighteners on my hair since I was 12 - my first pair were Remmington straight and steam ones which left my hair really shiny, but used to take me at least 2 hours to properly straighten as my hair was so curly, long and thick I would have to go over each section of hair a few times. They were basic hair irons and a tube which you would need to fill up with water and steam would come out whilst you were straightening - pretty much like a steam iron! Speaking of which my mum sometimes used to iron my hair too on the ironing board when I wanted it super straight!! Hahaha!
Obviously I cant live without and the original GHDs had just come out so I bought these from Toni and Guy for £99. Absolutely loved these and they have been well used and travelled with me everywhere! I used them at least twice a day everyday and couldn’t live without them! I have dropped them so many times, so many times left them switched on all day (surprised I haven’t burnt the house down!) they even got stolen once and thrown in a bush but still worked afterwards! Sadly after 6 years and lots of adventures these broke :(
My mum once bought me a pair of cheap Remington straighteners to leave at home in case I ever forgot my GHDs - but they didn’t work for me at all they didn’t heat up high enough! So I have been reluctant to try any others. I have noticed since using ghds that my ends of hair always snap off at least an inch, but recently this has improved as I only try to use straighteners once or twice a week.
Which hair straighteners do you use?
