I can't make up my mind..! Ok, a little background on me. I used to have long permanently straightened black hair for years, loved it but thought I'd have a change so last year I had it colored and permed. I love the perm as well, though I think straight hair is easier to manage coz I don't need to style it, simply comb through after shower and let it dry. Recently I re-permed my hair and the perm didn't turn out great as last time. I wanted so badly to get rid of the perm, didn't know if I should go to another salon to re-perm or permanently straighten it. Then I saw all the rave about the GHD straightener and it can both straighten AND curl..! So maybe I can get this instead and can straighten and curl whenever I like? But the cons are, yes, it's SO expensive! And, I am quite a lazy person, :shame: can't imagine having to curl/straighten my hair strand by strand EVERY single time after shower, it would be such a hassle! I never even bother to blowdry my hair. Also what if I can't get it right? I can never seem to be able to use the regular curler/straightener by myself for my hair at the back. So I'm afraid that I'll be too lazy to use it and that would be such a waste. So do you think I should get it? Any advice or opinions are very much appreciated. I need to decide soon while I'm still in US coz GHD is not available at my home country. Also, anyone know when is the next Sephora sale? Or anywhere else I can get a better deal on the GHD straightener? Thanks in advance!
