I currently own a GHD which I've had for a few years. My hair is VERY thin and dry as I colour it. I accidentally came across the Karmin Pro oneday while searching online for hairdryers and after reading mostly positive reviews, decided it was time for a change from the GHD and OMG, I love it!! Straightens hair so quickly and doesn't leave it dry looking. Wish I came across this iron years ago!!!
