ghd platinum plus

When should you upgrade your hair styler?

Right, I’ve had my ghd original FOREVER and I’ve started to feel like it isn’t as good as it used to be. I need to run it over my hair 3 or 4 times, the edges of my hair always look a bit frayed and I just started wondering if maybe it was time….. The truth is each year I get the opportunity to try out the new stylers on the market and the upgrades in technology. A lot of people probably don’t believe me but there is a lot of tech that goes into a good hair styler. Brands are constantly refining that technology and improving on it. This means that while there is nothing wrong with my current styler, it still works, it still does its thing – there are newer options on the market that offer up a better finish and are probably a bit healthier for my hair.

And thus the conundrum I found myself in – is it time to upgrade?

There are 3 things to keep in mind when looking at upgrading your styler and whether or not you should. I decided to chat to my good friend Natasja, who works at ghd, to get her advice on what to consider and when to splurge. Our conversation is here for you to watch:

Three things to remember and you should be able to make an educated decision. Since making this video I took the plunge and am now using a ghd Platinum Plus – I know it is an expensive styler but I absolutely love it! I can definitely feel a difference. 

I'd love to chat to you some more.
