Well as I have had these Straighteners a while now, I can fully review them, so here goes.
I had my eye on these for a while, but unfortunately the price put me off. They were selling for £75.00, and I did not have that sort of money to justify spending that amount on them. I have 2 kids so unfortunately I come bottom of the list for luxuries. Well, anyway I was flicking through some mags that come through your door from shops like Curry's, Comet etc. Well I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that Curry's were having a sale and yes, you guessed it the straighteners were in sale. Even better than that they were half price, Woohoooo, £35.00, I could not believe my eyes. The sale was not to start for another week, so I had that week to get £35.00 together, right the kids would have to starve there was no other way, no only joking! Well I happened to get paid the day before, so I went upstairs and logged on to my Pc Internet banking to juggle all my finances so I knew that I could afford these "Chosen Ones". After juggling I realised that I could do it and next week I would have these straighteners after all.
The day came for me to go and get my Straighteners and I was so excited, the kids were dropped off to school and off I went. I literally ran into the shop, dont know why, there were a few boxes left so I grabbed them paid and ran back out of the shop, don't know why i did that either! I lead a shallow life don't I, the things that excite me! Anyway off I went home, threw my head under the shower to wash my hair, dried it, plugged the straighteners in and now was the moment of truth.
Firstly though i will give all spec info, just to keep you guessing!!
**They are ready to use in 1 minute, great for getting hair done in a quick time. **
**ThermoCeramic heating technology, a must nowadays.**
**Ergonomic slim design allows styling at the roots, this is good as most do not get to the root of your hair, thus making boufaunt hair!**
**High temperature for superior results, I always found with my other straighteners that the heat was not great, and I could not get the result that i so desperatley wanted.**
**Ceramic plates for the ultimate smooth finish, no sticky up bits on my hair now!**
**Comes with a 3 metre salon length cable, which is invaluable, means i can move around doing other things while straightening!!**
** Two heat setting ** I = Low setting, never really use this one unless I need a a little help with a kink in my hair. II = High setting, always use this one, but they do get very Hot. Excellent results though.
**Model Number: 22020** 230v:50/60hz:75w
They retail at £69.99 now, or so I have seen. You may still get them at the half price like iIdid but I have not seen them at this price since, but maybe I am not looking!
**MOMENT OF TRUTH**
Your hair does need to be dry to use these ones, so I made sure my hair was totally dry before using them. They did glide through my hair really well and I found I only really needed to glide them through one or twice to get the complete straight look. It only literaly took me 5 mins to get the complete straight look that I wanted and I was so impressed with the result. I felt like I had just come out of the hairdressers when they blow dry your hair straight. It was amazing.
Now I know these things are not particarly good for your hair, but I always use a heat styling spray before I use them on my hair, and I can honestly say that there is no damage to my hair. My hairdresser always says that my hair is in good condition, and doesn't look like I use straighteners at all. I only tend to use them when I wash my hair and I want to have my hair down and I always find that the staighteness in my hair stays until I need to wash it again.
They lived up to my expectations, and I have used GHD's before, but in my book these beat them hands down!
