    21 Things Everyone Who Was Obsessed With GHDs Will Get

    Good Hair Days > Frizzy Hair Days.

    1. Having frizzy hair was your greatest and most terrifying nightmare.

    2. Which meant that you had to straighten your hair every day.

    3. Before GHDs came out, you owned something crap like a Babyliss 3-in-1 that you had to heat up for half an hour before using it.

    4. But as soon as GHDs came out, you knew you had to buy some.

    5. You know exactly how painful accidentally burning your ear on your straighteners is.

    6. And you know that catching your neck with your straighteners made it look like you had a massive hickey.

    7. But the most painful body part to burn was your fingers.

    8. But also your wrist.

    9. You've probably also burnt some of your possessions...

    10. ... and you've definitly burnt your bedroom carpet.

    11. But as well as ruining everything around you, burning random stuff made your GHDs really grotty.

    12. You went through a phase of curling your hair but straightening your fringe.

    13. Sometimes you couldn't reach the back of your head, so you went out looking like this.

    14. And sometimes you'd straighten your hair, but then tie it up too soon afterwards, and end up with a ponytail kink.

    What a fashion faux pas.

    15. You used to straighten your hair while it was still wet to save drying time.

    16. And you've tied up your hair, pulled out two strands to frame your face, and straightened those strands too.

    17. Your mum never understood why you had to blow dry and then straighten your hair immediately afterwards.

    18. You went through an astronomical quantity of Lee Stafford heat protection spray.

    19. But it didn't stop you burning your hair at least once.

    20. You avoided drizzle and humidity as though it were the most dangerous weather on this planet.

    21. And, quite honestly, you have never been as committed to anything or anyone in your adult life as you were to GHDs back then.
