Pink Cherry Blossom Hair Straighteners* £129 with £10 going to Breakthrough Breast Cancer
My hair is naturally poker straight so I am lucky that I don't have to spend hours battling with straighteners to end up with the sleek bob look I usually aim for. This doesn't mean that I don't need to use straighteners to help me get this look and I want to use a great quality pair to minimise the potential heat damage to those delicate ends.
My old straighteners are Mark 3 GHD's and about 7 years old. They still work despite me having left them on all day several times (don't tell my husband!) but after trying out these beauties I can confirm that they have definitely seen better days... I have used them daily over the last 7 years which made them well worth the investment, works out to under 5p a day! Fantastic value. They really are the best hair straighteners.
The styling of these limited edition straighteners is just perfect. I love the girlie pink plates and the subtle glossy polka dots. I absolutely adore the heat resistant storage bag that they come in, I love the cherry blossom embroidery - it's so pretty! My favourite thing about these straighteners is they turn themselves off after 30 minutes, no more worrying that I have left them on and no more discoloured paint work when I find out I have... ha! They beep to let you know when they are ready for use and the power indicator has even been given a pink make over with a light up GHD logo.
Of course though the best thing about these straighteners is for every pair purchased £10 goes to Breakthrough Breast Cancer. GHD have raised almost £6 million for Breakthrough Breast Cancer over the last 9 years, that's something to be very proud of!
This is how my hair looks each morning after I have washed and dried it. As you can see it is mostly totally straight with a few sticky out bits that need tackling. I use my GHD's to turn the ends under and generally smooth my hair down so it doesn't sit quite so straight. Once finished I add a touch of serum to the ends and a bit of hairspray and voila!
*The GHD's have been gifted to me for review. I added the £10 that would have gone to charity if they had of been purchased to my #TBBCAR donation, no one wants a charity to lose out now do they?!
