Having watched Julia yesterday on the GHD lounge (or whatever they called it!!) I though her hair looked really good. I don't like straight hair on me but seeing how curly hers was wondered if these are good for making it curly. I have never though of using 'straightners' to make curls????? I normally throw some heated rollers in. Do you folks recommend them?? I am thinking of giving them a go as I have my 30 mbg. But they are very expensive.
Hi Rosey

I love my GHD's but I cannot make curls with them at all !!! My hairdresser can & it looks lovely but no matter how hard I try I can never get the curl !!

There is a knack to it & altho it looks easy I cant do it ! In fact out of about 10 people I know who use GHD's only 1 can do the curl thing !

Its worth trying it on the 30 mbg tho - you might not be a cack handed as me - good luck !!!

i cant make curls with my ghds either and iv bloomin tryed no matter what i do just cant seem to get it!love them for straighteneing but dont do it often now
My daughter uses them and just raves about them all the time

My younger daughter doesn't own her own set of GHDs yet (Xmas, she hopes! lol) but pinches her friend's whenever she can!
She raves about them as she has extremely thick (& I do mean really thick!), naturally heavily wavy hair that is prone to untamed wildness & wooliness at the drop of a hat!
She likes her hair dead straight usually & says the GHDs are just so much quicker at achieving this on thick hair than her own straighteners or other makes!

She can also do the curl thing & I think it's just down to a lot of practice & being brave! It also seems to be down to 'all in the wrist action' & having watched her, she does it quickly with an accompanying finger twirl, no faffing about & mistakes are simply straightened out & re-done!
(She is one of these annoying people who can put their arms into ridiculously unnatural & uncomfortable positions though as she is completely double-jointed almost everywhere, so maybe this helps too when you're doing it on yourself! lol)
Oh I can not curl with them at all, I get clamp marks and no curl! Just awful, but as a straightner they are amazing.
My lovely hubby treated me to the pink GHD's 2 wks ago.
I was sceptical, but am now totally converted,they truly are the dogs doodah's.

Try will love them!
