      I miss using hair straighteners to tame the stubborn frizz and all the number of things you can do with it for styling. The length of my hair falls flat and I worry of my face looking a little plump, and though it’s sounding completely counter to my self-esteem, I think my face looks longer than before I had curly locks. It seems my hair has lost its shape. What disappoints me the most is the enduring limpness of treated hair. Straight hair doesn’t look very nice once it grows longer and the way the ends sit so stiffly on my décolleté – I couldn’t stop making an allusion to a broom. I’m dreaming of loose waves to balance out the proportions. I wound up at ebay combing every listing for a flat iron. I found a good deal for a Ghd mini styler at a fair price. I would later object of my purchase because I was scantily informed about the product. I misconstrued that it was dubbed as a “mini” styler thinking that term relates only to the literal size of the product and that it was portable. Actually, the mini styler is made for styling short hair including men’s. It was too late to cancel my purchase. The mini styler, in

      spite of its size, came to be a powerhouse for hairstyling.

      I had misjudged the power of this straightener upon seeing the slim ceramic plates. It came as a surprise to me that the iron plates turned scalding hot! The plates reach a viable temperature for styling in less than a minute – that’s a record breaker! And the heat feels palpable even from a few inches away from the scalp. Hence, it should be handled not close to the scalp. The immediate outcome is readily discernible on the texture. Hair feels unbelievably smooth to the touch. All the matte and course textures just melt under the flat iron. I focus on the ends and clip my hair halfway through making a full curl toward my face. It gives me the enviable waves I so desire.

      I know I have had many accounts of my ranting about how I despised my bangs so much in this site, I’ll do that once again, but more to underscore how the flat iron has helped me restrain my bangs from covering half of my face. I had my bangs swept aside using the straightener. My bangs are so stiff and I have chopped layers at the sides too, which flare outward like a bohemian shag. I wish I would be ...


      • cool enough to channel a boho chic aesthetic, but that’s rather sloppy for my taste. To fix this, I often shove my bangs to my ears to hide the fringy wisps of hair. My bangs are long. I let the hot plates shape up my bangs so it hugs the contours of my face and draw the rest of it to the side. I also lift the iron to tease the hair while doing this to give it some volume. In effect, the right portion of my hair gains a bit of volume, with fullness and body. The style reinforces my bangs to stick to the side, away from my face.

        For curls, I agree that the iron is quite capable of making tight curls given its thin plates so it’s comparable to a smaller size of a curling barrel. The curved contours of the heat-resistant plastic, which holds the plates, were supposedly designed to produce well-defined curls without crepe lines or horizontal bumps running across each curled tendril. But I thought the curl it gave me was angular and not the seamless curves one can create by using a curling rod. If you’re going for loose and voluminous curls, you can achieve that style by twisting the hot barrels across the tendril, or the strip of hair you

        want to curl, going downward throughout the vertical length of the plates. I highly advise you don’t overlap the hair because it would result to very tight kinky curls.

        I’m still at the early stages of using the straightener so I cannot include insights concerning heat-induced damage and such. My rebonded hair can do well on its own without heat styling. It’s also tedious to strain your hands every day relying mainly on flat irons. I use it when I have time to spare busying with my locks. However, one ugly truth about straighteners is that the tool takes the moisture out of healthy hair. My hair can manifest dryness after a day or two. I follow it with an intensive masque to treat damage. In terms of longevity, the style doesn’t withstand long hours. The waves revert back to the usual after a few hours had passed. It doesn’t last a full day, I think. The same can be said about curls. Regardless, I’m continuously astounded by the impervious effect of the straightening salon treatment applied on my hair. That said, I have the liberty to go straight or wavy. I bought the product for 70 dollars and that’s a bargain price over its retail value. Plainly on account of its performance, I recommend this styling tool.
