A few months ago my GHD's died on me, I hardly ever used them. I only smoothed the ends of my hair with them..occasionally. So, I thought I'd make do without straighteners in my life!
Boy was I wrong! My mane of hair has been tied up in a top-knot for the past month or so because 1. I can't blowdry hair and 2. because I wasn't sure which straighteners to buy.
I didn't want GHD's again, a few of the beauty bloggers on twitter recommended Cloud 9 and another brand of straighteners with a name that sounds like an Ancient Greek God (totally can't remember it). Priya at BeautyWowza knows how much I love new. niche products which nobody is talking about, so she recommened me a new hair straightener brand called Stylerush.
Stylerush is from Korea and only just launched in the UK. There are two types, the standard and mini straightener available in 4 colours: violet, lime, orange and black! I love that the colours aren't your typical pink or zebra print (yawn).
I plugged them in, unsure of how long they would take to heat up, well, they reached their max 180 c temperature within a minute which is great for an impatient girl like me. The ceramic plates smoothed my naturally wavy, unruly hair instantly leaving it glossy and silky. I love that these straighteners come with a heat resistant cap and extra long cord, I always struggled with the ghd ones in my house because of where the plug socket and mirror are positioned.
