Today you no longer have to commit to a permanent texture altering treatment like a relaxer if you want to wear your hair straight from time to time, there are so many styling tools available which give you the freedom to safely straighten your hair without altering your natural curl pattern. Leading hair manufacturers ghd have added another product to their portfolio entitled Glide, the brand’s first hot brush which replicates a salon blowdry simply by the user gliding a heated brush through their hair to create a sleekness with an airy texture.
The brush is light in weight but packs power by utilising ceramic technology with ioniser which heats the brush uniformly to the optimum of 185°C, a styling temperature that’s ideal for temporarily straightening Afro textured hair to a smooth and glossy finish. The styling tool is designed with a combination of high density shorter bristles and longer bristles, which allows large sections to be styled and results in more natural movement to the hair.
This styler is a ideal solution for those who require straight hair from time to time but may not necessarily want to use straighteners or a hairdryer which offers more intense heat and can often lead to heat damage if used excessively. Glide is a gentler alternative, offering the user a more natural, textured finish that can be achieved from the comfort of your own home.
Priced at £125, Glide is fairly pricey in comparison to other hot brushes on the market, but that’s definitely in keeping with ghd’s ethos of premium priced products that incorporates innovation and contemporary styling.
