GHD Dazzle Set for HairThursday, November 18, 2010
This limited-edition set includes a ghd Professional 1" Styler, a black travel hair dryer, and a heat-resistant zip up carrying case. Pretty much everything I need to style my hair while on the go!
The dryer is a bit large for a travel dryer (meaning, bigger than my old one. But, it does actually work throughout the entire job of drying my hair without over drying, I guess I shouldn't complain too much). It comes with an attachable nozzle, has 2 different settings (high and low, heat and speed are not separate) as well as a cool button. It is 1875 watts, so is more powerful than many travel dryers. I love that it even has a switch in the handle to change the voltage when you leave the country. The handle folds in to make it more compact for packing.
The flat iron is a 1" ceramic plates with rounded edges, making it easy to use for creating waves or curls in addition to straightening your hair. It heats up in about 1 minute (I love the little chime it sounds to let you know it is ready), and is hot enough to really only need 1 pass over my wavy hair. I'm not sure how hot that is though, as there is no temp control on this one. Only the on/off switch.
It all comes packages in the sparkled heat resistant case. The case is a bit large for my taste since it holds both tools and has room left over to add in a brush, comb and probably a few styling products. It is heat resistant though and features a flap inside to protect anything else you pack in there from the heat of the flat iron.
Overall, I did like both tools and have been using them for the last week or so to get a feel for them. The dryer only takes a couple of minutes longer than my normal everyday hair dryer (bonus), and I've had great results with the flat iron. I'll be packing these on my next trip for sure!
