Advantages Straightens hair, heat dial
Disadvantages Not as good as GHDs, no longer available
As I hadn’t managed to come home to visit my family since Christmas, I decided to go down to Newcastle for a few days not long after my exams were over. Since I was only going for four days, however, I didn’t see the point in bringing a large suitcase and all my usual beauty products, and so things like my hairdryer and GHDs were left at home. While I’ve been here, I’ve therefore been using my mam’s straighteners instead, which are these Remingtons. While they’re not as expensive or as good as my wide GHDs, they are decent straighteners that I’ve been more than happy to use for a few days.
These are decent straighteners and they definitely do the job of straightening my hair well. While I prefer my GHDs as they straighten in less time, these are a good alternative that still gets my hair nice and straight. I did originally have trouble working out how to turn it on, as I didn’t realise that you had to hold the power button for a few seconds rather than just clicking it, but after my mam showed me how they work it was easy enough to turn them on subsequently. I have to say that I didn’t use the temperature dial much, but it was good to be able to choose to have it on a lower heat, as that would reduce the damage done to your hair. Straightening my hair with these was simple enough, with the only problem being that the straighteners are curved somewhat, so that they worked better when held with the side with the power button facing out. Considering that my GHDs can be used either way, I found this quite awkward and annoying as it meant changing the angle I was holding it at depending on which side of my head I was using them. I also have to say that, while they do a good job of straightening my hair, the effects don’t last quite as long as when using my normal GHDs.
