Long Hair Don’t Care Part 2: Styling

hair style hair care

I recently (sort of) received a GHD Platinum Styler. As a girl with thick, curly, long hair I wear out flat irons at least once a year. It takes a lot to tame this mane. I wanted to wait about three weeks before writing a review, I like to thoroughly use a beauty product before recommending it to y’all. Overall it’s a great styler. If you have thin hair, this is the styler for you. With the design of the this flat iron, it won’t over heat your hair and you can easily style it.

After three weeks of using the GHD Platinum styler, here are my thoughts:

I’m really careful with my hair. Throughout college it was beautiful, long, and thick. Then I let someone take a little too much liberty with my mane which ended with a ton of blonde, horrible bangs and about 10 inches gone. I was horrified. Then I thought I needed to curl my hair every day. Talk about damage! So 3 years and a ton of biotin later (read here about my low maintenance hair care routine!), I’m very picky about what I use on my hair and what I’ll recommend to y’all.

A hair-stylist once told me that blowing out my hair was the best arm workout she’s ever had. So with that in mind, I will say I need a little more heat than the GHD Platinum gives to flatten my hair out. It only has one heat setting, 365. Because of that this flat iron works better with smaller chunks of hair than I am used to using.

I like that this flat iron lights up and makes a chiming sound when on, when heated up and when you turn it off. The design is fantastic. My hair doesn’t snag and the curved edge makes creating waves and body much easier. This flat iron is also much better/safer for my hair due to the how the heat is distributed.

For anyone that uses a straightener frequently, I highly recommend GHD products (buy em here!). The heat technology really has me sold. The ends of my hair are already pretty dead, they need all the protection that they can get!

One issue I have the white is that it does get dirty fairly easy, but it’s even easier to clean off and I love the clean look of the white.
