I kinda feel obligated to show what the GHD can do because it's amazing and if you need an iron, you need this one! Plus, the Sephora friends and family ends Wednesday...and you guys, it rocks! See what the hair iron from heaven did to my crazy curly hair! And I have comparison shots for what the Hai and Chi did to my hair for reference. Pic #1: Hello, crazy curly hair! You're looking rather big and sassy today! Yes, my hair is quite big and the curls are rather small, and clearly, my hair is an even bigger pain to straighten. Sometimes it was just easier to let the hair do what it wants. This is my hair doing what it wants in May of this year. Pic #2: This is the evil doing of the Chi and this is 4 years ago. Yes, it's technically straight, but it's technically dead, too. Not only does my hair look dry and brittle, (it was, in fact, dry and brittle) but also note how thin my hair is there. Ironing my hair with that evil iron thinned out my hair tremendously. Don't mind the brassy hair, I thought I could pull off light brown in high school. It just brassed up. to the Chi. Straightening time: 50 minutes. Why? Because I had to do sections over and over and over again. That was definitely great for my hair. Pic #3: A bitsy better than Chi, but not by much. This is the work of the Hai and while it's not as damaging as the Chi was (note how my hair became thick again) but my hair still looks dry and a bit frizzed. Here, I'm the girl at the party that everyone knows has curly hair but she straightened it and now it looks a mess. Don't you love that girl? Straightening time: 40 minutes. Pic #4: Hello, beautiful hair! I didn't know you existed atop my head unless I went to an aerosol smelling cavern where I paid a woman with strong upper arms to blow you dry with a round brush and some hot hair. It's so shiny and straight, and not dry or weird looking. My boyfriend's response: "I could never rationalize spending $200 on something like a hair iron, but oh my God, you're hair is so shiny and soft, that thing was worth it." Straightening time: 25 minutes. Please note that my hair is way longer than Chi days and longer than Hai days too, and despite that, GHD takes less time. Pic #5: And a close up of my hair! I had no idea my brown hair was so multi-tonal! I just thought my hair was dark! I love you GHD, I wouldn't trade you for the world!
