Why you’ll want to add the new GHD glide to your bathroom asap
No, it's not just any other hair styling tool. This one is a time saver.
When I was a kid, heated brush-style tools were popular. My mum had one. My grandma had one. My aunt had one. But they always ended up unused at the bottom of a drawer somewhere, maybe with some bristles broken.
These tools never quite seemed to do the job. Especially not on curly hair like mine. Every time I used one, I ended up with a half-straight hairdo and standing in a pile of broken hair on the bathroom floor.
So it was interesting to hear that GHD had decided to launch its very own brush styler called the GHD Glide. According to GHD the Glide is a "hot brush which tames and smooths dry hair quickly and effortlessly – your perfect partner for second day styling".
Okay, so what exactly is it?
Well, think of it like a straighter-hairdryer hybrid. You use it in the same way as you would a flat-iron style straightener, but the effect is something more akin to a voluminous blow-dry. I've seen the effect. Sweaty gym hair is transformed into a bouncy 'do, curly hair is relaxed and transformed into silky lengths and flat hair is given volume and flair. It's not a replacement for your straightener, more like a quick route to polished, pretty hair.
The difference between this brush-styler and the rest is GHD's technology. The ceramic pad of the brush heats uniformly to a temperature of 185 degrees Celsius – the ideal temperature for styling hair. The ceramic plate has an ioniser which helps to restore balance, which kills frizz and leaves your strands perfectly glossy.
But the best part? To use this tool, all you need to do is just brush through your hair. No clipping, no sectioning. Just give it a brush and let it work it's magic. Perfect for lazy time-poor people like myself.
