A few weeks ago, Chris stumbled to bed (tired, not drunk) and stepped on my GHDs. They snapped in half and I could have cried - my beloved six year old GHDs were no more!
After a few weeks of curling my hair every day I was very happy when Tony&Guy introduced me to their hair wardrobe of tools which included their Professional Straightener* - hooray! My hair was saved.
The Tony&Guy straighteners use ceramic tourmaline technology which sounds quite fancy and is basically the professionally preferred option as it uses high heat but preserves hair's natural moisture without making it frizzy.
It's really simple to use- you just turn on and select the temperature you want (it goes up to 230C) and it heats up in seconds. It also has auto shut off which is really handy as I am always panicking that I've left my straighteners on! (I know most have auto shut off these days but I haven't had shiny new straighteners in years). I've found it just as good as my GHDs in terms of performance although they aren't as slim and ergonomic and my biggest niggle with it is that when you hold the straighteners your hand covers the temperature buttons which is a bit inconvenient.
The Tony&Guy Professional Straighter is usually £69.99 from their website but they currently have 20% off so you can buy it for £49.99! Click here to go to their site.
