“When faced with the prospect of wet weather, my top tips combine hairspray and the ghd gold® styler but not in a way you might think of using the duo..."

"Once your hair has been styled in the way you want, spray hairspray directly into your hands and press down onto the hair using your fingertips. I don’t usually spray directly onto the hair – using your hands means you can apply with precision. Press the hairspray from your hands into the key areas of the hair that can be affected by damp and frizz e.g. your parting and baby hairs at the front! Then, use the warmth of the back of your straightener (turn it off after styling so it is still warm!) to seal down any additional loose hairs. This ultimately fills the hair strand and prevents rain getting in by warming the resin of the product for long lasting protection.” 

“Reviving your morning blow dry after being caught in a rain shower is easy with this five minute Faux Blow!

"If you have styled your hair in the morning, especially if you have used a hairdryer, the simple method to revive your dampened do is to spritz the hair with ghd curl hold spray and then re-blow dry the top section only – the bottom, layered areas won’t be affected by the rain so concentrate on smoothing and styling the top section to revive your look!”
