I have to admit, this purchase came unexpectedly and was a straight impulse purchase. I’ve never really seen the point of a straightening brush because I have a strict technique when it comes to straightening my hair.
I’m old school, and I use a good ole boar bristled brush and a flat iron and I’m really happy with the outcome.
So that leads me to why I purchased this dam thing on an impulse.
I always dreaded running the morning after I straightened my hair because frizz is a true struggle for me. I get frizz in the funniest spot, right next to my dam scalp.
Or when I sleep on my hair wrong and it’s a mess and I don’t have time to straighten it my normal way.
So it hit me , why not get a straightening brush to help in between straightening to keep my hair looking right and save time.
What Is The GHD Glide Brush?
The GHD Glide is a professional hot brush that was made to give you pro results at home, quickly! The GHD Glide is a perfect tool to have if you want to give your 2nd day hair a frizz check within seconds!
One thing to note is what the GHD Glide brush feels like because they may change your mind. When holding it I notice it’s a tad bit on the heavy side it almost feels like my mini weights.
This is not going to be like holding your typical brush, but its for a good reason!
Here’s the quick run down on the ghd glide brush
- The Glide heats up to 365 for healthy hair
- Ceramic technology with ionizer heats up the brush consistently
- ions within the brush eliminate frizz so hair is transformed in just a few quick strokes.
- Combination of high density shorter and longer bristles allows for large sections of hair to be styled, leaving salon smooth natural movement.
The one thing I was a little worried about was the price. This brush came in hot at $169.00 and all you get is the brush. You can find the Glide here. When I purchased this at Sephora, I was hesitant but I finally pulled the trigger.
How The GHD Glide Preformed
I give this brush a 9 1/2 stars out of 10 and I’m pretty excited about this brush to be honest.
I did my normal prep to my hair before using the brush and I’m happy with my results. I washed my hair, dried it using my Dyson and section by section ran the ghd through my hair.
I was surprised/ impressed at how close it got to the root of my hair. Not only that, but it didn’t burn my scalp either. I did 3-4 passes on each section and my hair was shiny, soft, full of body and I noticed little to no breakage.
It took me 12 minutes to straighten my entire head and like GHD mentioned I had salon smooth natural movement type hair.
The brush stayed consistent with the heat and I liked that I was able to curl the tips of my hair out so it wasn’t just pin straight.
Let’s spend more time on the tips of the hair, when I was researching this brush that was the main complaint I was seeing.
I can say I had no problems with the tips of my hair. If anything they felt much softer. Before I used the Glide, I used Aveda smooth infusion and maybe that played a part. I haven’t had a haircut in sometime so I was expecting my ends to feel like a broom.
Surprisingly it felt and looked like I had my hair done at the salon, pretty much effortlessly.
I noticed I had better results when I did medium size sections compared to small or too large sections.
