ghd Arctic Gold Professional Styling Gift Set

Want good hair every day? Then get ghd, which literally stands for ‘good hair day.’ I first discovered their Gold Professional 1″ styler in 2011 – and besides my beloved blow dryer, it is honestly the only styling tool I’ve used in the five years since.

In November, Sephora sent me ghd’s limited-edition Arctic Gold Professional Styling Gift Set, and I’m equally obsessed. It’s like the styling iron of my dreams, made real. I love that it heats up to the optimum styling temperature of 365 °F in less than 60 seconds, and beeps to let me know it’s time to do the do. And the contoured plates allow me to create straight, wavy and curved styles. It never snags as I run it over my tresses, and it imparts the most amazing shine.

Once upon a time, I needed this rug. But thanks to ghd and their handy automatic shut off feature, I don’t worry about my house burning down.

It also shuts off after 30 minutes of inactivity so you never have to worry that you’ve left it on and your house may be on fire. Perfect for traveling, the gift set also includes a heat-resistant roll bag with a protective plate guard – so go ahead and throw your hot-as-hell styling iron into your bag (or wherever) without fear that it’ll melt all of your stuff. Love that!

I will admit that at $225, this styling set costs a pretty penny. But if you use your iron on the regular, it’s definitely a worthwhile investment.

Cute hair + less damage – risk of burning your house down = what are you waiting for?

ConairPro Yellow Bird Hair Dryer

Conair Yellow Bird Hair DryerWhen it comes to hair dryers, the most important feature to me is a pik attachment. Some women need a concentrator attachment to achieve a salon quality blowout. I need a pik attachment to simultaneously dry and straighten my relaxed hair. So when the pik attachment from my old hair dryer broke nearly every last tooth, I went on a quest to find a new dryer – because it’s easier to start from scratch and get a new dryer that comes with a pik attachment than to find a new pik to fit my old dryer. Those of you who require a pik know. The struggle is real.

So after an exhaustive search, I found an awesome replacement. It’s called the ConairPro YellowBird Hair Dryer. As the name implies, this dryer is used – and beloved – by many professional hairstylists.

They likely love it for the same reasons I do:   (more…)
