Introducing GHD Air - Will you give in?

Is the latest professional hairdryer from the expert brand. I have a weird attachment with the brand as I have been using its products since the past few years and they are second to none.

Well Cloud 9 and Enrapture are also a few of my favourite brands when it comes to hair styling but as I previously mentioned, I have and always will have a fond attachment with GHD.

If you did not know, GHD stands for ‘Good Hair Day’. So there is no excuse not to have one every day!

Till date, GHD only makes three varieties of Hair Straighteners and this is the first time when they have experimented with a variation of their product which is quite exciting to be honest.

They claim it to be ‘the’ professional hair dryer that will reduce frizz and leave hair sleek and beautiful. It has ionic technology which according to my knowledge reduces frizz and static and adds shine to the hair so that its more manageable and smooth. It has a very powerful 2100 watt AC motor which is quite silent for how powerful it is.

Now the question that first came to my mind was 'How can a hairdryer be different from the rest'? I currently have a Babyliss one which works decently for its purpose and is a very pretty lilacy colour which I quite like.

This on the other hand is its posher sister if you know what I mean. It’s very sophisticated and pretty with its slender shape and precise detailing. Surprisingly light too which I also did not expect. This makes it easier to manoeuvre between hands and its one quality all hair tools should possess.  

However it’s USP is that it dried my long, wavy, slightly frizzy hair in just 2 minutes, literally. That too with the cold air setting on. As for the texture of my hair, well it was softer than usual, even the sister agree so  but I used the new Liz Earle Botanical Shine Treatment alongside which could have benefited the hair as well. 

It comes with two add on nozzles for concentrated drying but I really wish it came with a diffuser attachment too as that way it would make a complete styling device on its own for people who don’t want to use extra heat on their hair followed by a straightener. Plus the extra feature would make me feel I got my money’s worth.

All in all, it’s yet another great product from the brand. Yes, it’s a hair dryer at the end of the day costing £99 and if you are someone like me who usually air dries their hair naturally, then this would be slightly pointless you see.

However if you are normal like the rest of the population who go through a ritualistic hair drying routine at least 3 times a week, then this would totally be worth the investment I believe and should avoid the need of any further heat tool on the hair.
