Review : GHD Style & Protect Gift Set.

Monday, 5 March 2012

I am all about my hair at the moment. I want to keep it in tip top condtion between now and my wedding.. Yes it isnt until next year but theres no time like the present to try and rectify things! I was kindly sent the GHD Style & Protect gift set to try out. My usual go to style on a day to day basis is to just wear my hair down and straight, its easy and quick for the mornings meaning I get to have a little bit of a lie in! The set I was sent has everything I need to..well.. style and protect my hair! So I swapped around my current products for a bit and gave them a test run.


The large Paddle Brush is a must for anyone with long hair. It's gentle on your hair, and is a great brush for detangling, it doesn't really pull your hair that much (I have misplaced my tangle teezer and this was a good alternative). These type of brushes are well known to be the best brush for a sleek and straight blow dry! It definitely ensured I didn't have to run my hair straighteners through my hair after drying.  The sectioning clips provided are a welcome addition, I always use them when doing my hair as it makes styling so much easier.. I also regularly lose my clips so I was happy to see these in the kit to replace the ones I had lost!

 Whenever I use heat on my hair I always make sure I use a heat protectant. The straight and smooth spray not only helps with keeping my hair nice and frizz free after styling, it contains the GHD Heat protect system, so effectively you are getting two products in one! The scent is lovely and lasts all day in my hair, the only niggle I do have is the way it distributes out of the spray nozzle. Unfortunately it seems to squirt the product out rather than spray evenly, meaning some sections of my hair get a bit more damp than others. It doesn't effect the performance, its just slightly annoying for me personally. Out of the two products available in the Style and Protect gift set, I do prefer the Final Shine Spray. It sprays evenly and smells lovely! I always like to use a shine spray to finish off a look, and this one doesn't disappoint. It leaves my hair looking shiny and healthy, I nice quick fix while I'm in the process of getting my barnet in better condition! Even after using the two different sprays on my hair, it doesn't feel weighed down at all which is always a bonus! I would say this set is a perfect gift for someone who always wears their hair down and straight, it's got all the tools and sprays you need to create a polished look. If you suffer with frizzy hair it would also be a good investment as the straight and smooth spray will really help combat any unwanted frizz.

You can buy the GHD Style and Protect gift set from the GHD website for £39.00 or if you wanted to purchase the items individually you can do so by clicking the links in the paragraphs above.

Much love


  1. Shine spray sounds good, my James Brown shine spray is nearly out and I think it's been discontinued too, or changed! Will have to try this.


  2. I really need to sort my hair care out if I want it to carry on growing!

    I always forget about GHD products though!


Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
