For so long GHD's stylers were the way to go & every girl was holding on to her precious set for dear life (!!), well not any more, there are now many more options to look at to get that professional finish to your hair each day.
Newly launched on the market are Ego Hair Straighteners - a professional product that gives you excellent results. I have been lucky enough to try out a set over the last week & I have to say that any iron that can tame my frizzy hair to a sleek finish has certainly accomplished a difficult task! I have been delighted with the results, as a regular GHD user/addict, I have found these are in fact easier to use, they glide effortlessly through my hair leaving smooth shiny locks. This is due to a new mineral rich technology (HW2) which gives powerful results removing toxins & static from the hair whilst retaining moisture & cushioning the hair from any heat damage as well as reducing styling time. The best part about these is you can also adjust the heat setting, I find one thing with GHD's & certain other ceramic irons is that they get too hot & almost 'frazzle' your hair straight so you have that over straightened appearance - not a good look! You can get a much softer finish with these while still maintaining sleek shiny hair, they are also brilliant at creating soft curls, I love the effect straightening irons can have when curling hair & these can create beautiful soft waves as well, as they are easy to control with the heat settings giving even more flexibilty on the style. So in my opinion definitely the latest rival on the market!! Here's some more detailed info from Ego themselves on the products available -
