I love to straighten my hair and I use my limited edition lavender GHD for soft, sleek, shiny locks all the time. I've owned mine for about three years now, and it's still in great condition. I have thick hair, so I have to go through several passes. It's a classic, and would make a great gift as well.
This hair straightener is great. I've been using mine for about 5 years and it consistently gives great results. I have thick, frizzy, wavy hair and my ghd always makes my hair look smooth and shiny. It is well worth the investment.
