Let me be the first to admit my guilt! Where high-end hair care is concerned, I can’t stop my overactive imagination from waxing eloquent. And it was love at first curl with this latest offering from ghd.
The promos have it right. A beautiful visage….a wild party with wilder shenanigans and the cascade of golden glory, unrumpled and pure! It doesn’t matter how frequently the wicked Cinderella in you transforms into a creature of the night when you wake up in the morning; your innocent curls will not stand testament to your adventures. Curls…that last as long as you do!!
FEATURES TO WOW:
First and foremost, the limited edition keepsakes have been continued! And this time around it is an exquisite, almost gilded rose gold heat mat with a matching roll bag. Not essential. But incredibly desirable! I know of fashionistas who hoard ghd’s custom creations just for the sheer aesthetic appeal and the design value. The Soft Curl Tongs’ trappings will not disappoint.
As a woman who values length in her tumbling locks, I am very gratified by the 32 mm large barrel. The spring activated lever is purportedly ‘ergonomic’. And I am inclined to believe it is true. The barest pressure gets it to part its sleek black lips and kiss your curls with the magic of optimized heating. If you have a mane to be proud of, your arms WON’T be aching by the time you are done with the styling.
The provided literature boasts six sensors in the barrel that work in conjunction with patented ceramic technology to ensure a steady temperature of 185 degree Celsius across the length of the wand. In diva speak, this eliminates the fear of singing and delivers the right amount of heat to an entire strand locking in the curls for well over 24 hours.
I especially love the safety stand for holding the tongs during a session. It is uber convenient and will avoid a lot of ‘accidents’ in the boudoir. The ‘Sleep’ mode is another cutting edge feature that turns the heat off when the set-up is left unused for more than thirty minutes. Ghd must have been telepathically reading my mind!
The cable is long enough for mobility while curling and since the wand uses a universal voltage, it is guaranteed to work just fine as you Jet set your way around the globe.
MY SPECIAL SUGGESTION:
Don’t get me wrong! Ghd is good enough to score you a perfect ten in the ‘well-appointed’ department. But the Curl Hold Spray is the icing on the cake. It is the ideal partner to the Soft Curl Tong and gives you big, juicy, bouncy ringlets that just go on and on and on.
