Review: ghd styling products
I'm pretty low maintenance when it comes to hair products. I buy whatever is on sale or the cheapest and just hope for the best. Yet I always wonder why my hair doesn't look as amazing as what the shampoo manufacturer is advertising. Sure, my hair is clean and soft, but it's also kind of limp and blah.
Then, DUH! I realized that I needed styling products to create volume and texture. That may sound obvious to you, but I seriously did not realize this until very recently. So needless to say, I was thrilled at the opportunity to try out ghd's Total Volume Foam and one of their hair brushes.
The ghd Total Volume Foam creates fullness and lasting volume in all hair types, and you just pump out a few pumps into damp hair and blow dry (it contains the ghd Heat Protection System, so you're all good). It promises to add all-over body to your hair and create root-lift, and add fullness to finer hair types. So how did it do? Well, I only tried it out a few times (blow-drying my hair is a luxury I do not often get to enjoy) and each time, it did create a little bit of volume, gave my hair more texture, and smelled nice, but the volume was not that much more noticeable. Maybe it's because my hair is so long that it was weighed down? Regardless, I liked the product and will continue to use it because it gives me a good base for when I want to curl my hair.
I also tried out their Ceramic vented radial brush in a size 3. From someone who has only used cheap hairbrushes, WOW. A good quality brush really makes a huge difference! It didn't snag my hair and was great for smoothing out my hair when I was blow drying it... except I still need to work on my brush-and-blow-dry-at-the-same-time technique.
If you're shopping for new hair brushes or styling products, I would highly encourage you to check out ghd!
