GHD Oval Dressing Brush

*I hold my hands up* I never really have been one to take too much notice on what brand of hair brush I use; so long as it does the job well, I am a happy lady. However having had the opportunity to 'test drive' the GHD Oval Paddle Dressing brush, I am hooked! 

Best for . . .Daily grooming. This grooming brush is a styling classic for mid- to long-length hair. Made from natural bristle, which helps distribute the hair’s natural conditioning oils along the hair shaft, the Oval Dressing Brush adds shine and lustre as you brush
(GHD, 2012)

As we all know GHD are best known for their straighteners, which I can imagine the majority of you own, or have owned in the past. Not only do they produce heating appliances, but also have products to protect the hair and finish/style the hair. However they also have hair tools to really help achieve a professional hair style. I had no idea GHD had hair tools, so was very excited to see what their products are like. 

First impressions - very impressed. Very GHD, and I like the modern contemporary styling, look and choice of colours of the outer packaging. Not sure if it would 'catch my eye' if I saw this in a store, but the choice of design of the packaging is very 'edgy' and unique.

The back of the outer packaging I found really useful to some degree; giving a realistic impression of the hair brush. Although I can imagine the majority of people would still be tempted to open the box and have a proper look, and 'feel' for the product. But nevertheless, still a cool feature to add to the packaging.

 . . .And the product its self . . . .violá . . . how fabulous does the hair brush look?

When I took the hair brush out of the box, immediately I could see quality and was very eager to actually get using on my hair. The natural bristles are short which I thought ''Noway will this brush penetrate through my hair, due to being quite thick'', but I was wrong. Adding a little bit of pressure, I found this hair brush really penetrating, working itself through the entire depth of my hair, leaving it soft and smooth. I also noticed my hair was very shiny thereafter, which was very surprising. I have also noticed that this brush is brilliant for smoothing down those 'flyaway hairs' that never do as they are told. 

The brush also feels very professional; not heavy, but of the right weight, has a rubbery feel for a good grip, and has 'GHD' stamp at the bottom of the brush, which I think is a very cool finish.

RRP £20 which is a little of the steep side, but it is a good hair brush that does exactly what it sets out to achieve.

      I read the packaging and what it claimed to do and thought ''nahhh''. But when I used it, I thought omg it is actually amazing. The best thing I like about it is the smoothing of my 'edges', no more fly away hairs :).

  2. i don't use a brush because my hair always gets tangled in them, but this one looks good! i definitely want to try it. :)
