For many years I’ve lived life with ultra-long hair, typically hair that hits just past my waist and so during that period I had my hair care routine down pat! But all that changed when I decided to go for the chop and go for substantially shorter hair. I was so used to using the L’Oreal Steam Pod (which I love!) to straighten my hair, but due to the size of the tongs, I had to switch to something much smaller. In came the ghd Professional Styler Mini ($269AUD)
The tongs are far thinner (around 2cm thick) and perfect for straightening and styling much shorter hair. I found that especially to be the case for the hair right above my neck which themselves are only about 5-6 cm long after a cut at most.
Now, small stylers are not unique to ghd, in fact many companies now release mini stylers that are even smaller and travel friendly, and I know because I’ve tried a lot of them! In fact I purchased one on a recent work trip because I had forgotten to bring my ghd with me and after one use I left it in the hotel room upon checking out because I knew I wouldn’t be using it again.
For the last 10 years or so of my life I’ve almost exclusively (L’Oreal Steam Pod is the exception) use ghd straighteners because of how efficient they are at straightening my hair and how healthy my hair looks right after. With most straighteners I find at Priceline, my hair always feels stiff and frizzle afterwards, and that is after having used a lot of great hair care products to help. Every time someone asks me about a hair straightener my answer is always get a ghd! It’s expensive but worth it!
Which leads me into an interesting story I have for you! ghd originally had contacted me regarding the GHD Opal ($269AUD), but I mentioned that because of my recent hair cut the Mini would be better suited. So they agreed to send me the Mini, but by mistake I received the Opal instead! They were so lovely, told me to keep it and they’d send me the Mini too.
Well I already have three standard sized ghds (crazy right!) so I certainly don’t need a fourth and we came to the agreement that offering it up for one of you lovely readers was the best thing to do! And hence the birth of this giveaway
