i LOVE my ghd's! i have the new large salon styler ones, the hairdresser showed me how to use them he glided them through my hair more slowly than i usually do, BUT i feel my condition is suffering badly!
i do do a deep treatment weekly and use tressame heat defence, but im stil getting dryed out hair?
its feels knackeed..i dont use them daily, maybe every few days..
i bought the ghd heat defence and HATED it made my hair feel dry and rough..

any good heat defence products out there? i need to protect my mane..:rolleyes:

Hi

The thermal protector range is fantastic for this! GHD's heat up to 190degrees - the same temp at which you'd cook a chicken , so protection is paramount. If you visit Nouveau Hair and Beauty they have more info on this.

Good luck!

Hi
For the record the ghd iv styler heats to 190 degrees.
The temperature was lowered but the technology inside maintains a higher average temperature through an ultra fast refresh rate...meaning they are as good as 210!
As an example, cordless battery hair straighteners are generally rubish. This is not because they dont get hot enough (some get to 210 now), it is because they lose heat quickly as you run them through hair and dont re heat quick enough hence average temp drops to 140-150 (I have measured this).
So the ghd iv refresh rate means one slow controlled movement should be enough to straighten. ie 1x190 degrees is one movement, if you do it twice its 2x190= 380!!! degrees and so on.
Ghd thermal protector is great but you must select the correct one (there are 3 types).
Also check out Infatreat TP spray, cheaper and very popular.
Remember more important than protector is not repeatedly going over and over your hair!
