That smell happens to me when I use the GHD alot in one day like when I was practicing doing curls, then straightening it, then doing waves. Smells like burnt hair.I like the results I get w/ my GHD but as far as damage and split end go I feel like I will have to use it for a while before I can determine that. Like 2-4 months. So far its been maye 2 weeks.
I do think it makes my hair smell kinda funny---not like my shampoo anymore----like extremely heat styled--kwim?
I have been trying my darndest to curl my hair with this thing. I just can't do it. I think I need whatever product they use on the dvd.to teh previous posted - to curl your hair w/ it youuse it teh same way as straightening it.
Except down just pull it straight down, start twisting your wrist the direction you want the curl to go as you're pulling it down/through the hair.
I curled my DD's hair w/ it last week, it's pretty fantastic.
Just DO NOT accidentally stop in the middle of one section while you're pulling it down/through the hair, it will leave a crease that's hard to get rid of.

Static Guard-good idea! I've tried that before but forgot about it. Thanks!hair is naturally more static-y in the winter, that combined w/ a heated tool is a little drying. mine is always staticy this time of year though.
I spray Static Guard on my brushes before I use them or spray it in teh air and fling my hair in it, it fixes it.
