When Irresistible Me approached me about trying some of their hair extensions, I declined because I already have extended hairs. They asked me if I wanted to try something else instead, so I opted for heir Diamond Hair Straighteners.
I was skeptical, because when I went to the US two years ago, we got some straighteners that were supposed to be better than GHD. The ones the guy tested on us were awesome! So we haggled ourselves a deal and got some. Only to find they weren’t actually that good. I’m such a gullible naive child. Doom. I’d like to saw I’ve learnt my lesson. But apparently not.
Because they’re from America, I had to get an adapter plug, which was about £2 on Amazon.
The straighteners come beautifully presented in a black box that closes magnetically. They’re bright red with black plates. The straighteners feature unique DIAMOND Hi-Tech, which coats the floating ceramic plates with crushed diamond particles mixed with tourmaline.
They reach 230C in 20 seconds and there’s the option to turn the temperature up and down.
So how did they fair on my hair?
I have thick, long hair. Left to it’s own devices, it goes frizzy with ringlets and curls. I’ve only ever used GHD’s as they’re the only thing that have worked in the past. Apart from some knock off GHDs that I bought off eBay. They were 40 quid and brilliant. But one day they heated up without being switched on (but plugged in, because I’m an idiot) and burnt through my computer mouse they were resting on and themselves. I tried to get a second pair but they just weren’t the same.
Soooo how did this work on my hair?
Pretty damn amazing.
They quickly straightened my hair and got rid of frizz.
I find with GHDs, I have to keep going over and over some of the frizzy bits and I’m still not completely cured. Also with GHDs, I have to go over my hair again the next day as my hair starts to frizz and get wavy again. With these straighteners, my hair was still straight the next day!
Take a look for yourself in the photos below.
The worst thing about the straighteners is the website you buy them from. You can get them from here, but be warned – you’ll be met with an awful popup that tries to make you log in or register, so you can’t browse freely. Please, Irresistible Me, sort this out so more people can buy your amazing hair straighteners that work better than GHD’s for a fraction of the price without frustration?
Have you ever found straighteners better than GHDs? That’s a pretty bold statement, but I’m happy to stand by it. My GHDs are now packed in a box under my bed for an emergency if anything happens to these.
Update: They singed my hair.
