GHD - in one word - AMAZING - I am looking to do a commercial for an incredible product that I found. Please pay close attention to my Christmas Miracle.

For my birthday this last April - I decided I deserved something special. Something to make my life easier. SO - I went to CosmoProf (a wholesale store for licensed beauty technicians - thank you Jamie for hooking me up) I bought myself a GHD flat iron. I had previously had a CHI and I have to be honest - it wasn't that great. I brought my new GHD home and carefully plugged it in. I am not sure I have ever owned anything that expensive (except for maybe my wedding ring - it is real right Jason? :0) I was giddy as the plates ran through my stubborn waves straightening them like a pancake in half the time it had taken my CHI. I concluded it was definately worth the $150.00 I begrudgingly forked over for it.

Now here is the rest of the story. Since the blessed day in April my poor little flat iron has been through a lot. It has been dropped - used as a lasso by my little boys, and I caught Keaton fishing with it in the bathtub while it was still plugged in. Yes, this little GHD has taken quite a beating and yet continues to work.

Now - here is the miracle. Wednesday night I came home from mutual to find all heck had broken loose. My dear sweet husband (who is now dear and sweet once more after a severe tongue lashing but his rather out of control wife) had not been properly attending our 5 little angels from heaven and an unfortunate accident had occured. I walked into the crime scent unaware of the catastrophe that awaited me and there at the bottom of my very large, very full bathtub was my $150.00 little birthday gift laying still and motionless in it's watery grave. I am ashamed to talk of what happened next but let's just say - I could have been committed (to a insane asylum that is).

Here is the Christmas miracle - I have no idea how long my little flatiron had laid there at the bottom of the tub. Of how long the water had seeped into it's insides causing it's electrical death - but friends I am here to tell you my little flatrion survived. After 36 hours of laying on the counter and my constant care to shake the water out, praying that it would come back to life - IT LIVES. TRUE STORY. I plugged it in - holding my breath - the little red light came on and the ping to say there was power; 30 seconds later a second ping - "I am HOT" it called to me - and I rejoiced as my little flatiron lived another day to straighten my hair.

I apologize for the long excerpt - but the story must be told. If you are looking for a hair straightner. One that is committed to the job - get yourself a GHD - I promise you won't be sorry.
