If you've had the unfortunate experience of having to straighten or curl my hair (Zoe, Grace, Angelica, Kirsty, Gabby) then you know that I have a lot of it - layer upon layer of thick red Hermoine Granger-esqueness. Right now my hair is in pretty good condition, but flashback to when I was 18 I had hair down to my waist and a knot on the back of my head that just kept coming back no matter how many times my friend/me/the scissors tried to get rid of it. Most of the time, I'm too lazy to style my hair because it takes time and I do kind of like the natural wave my hair has. Although, my Friday night routine has changed forever thanks to the Dafni Go hair straightening brush.

BTW: The white patch in my hair is my dry shampoo which I hadn't rubbed in yet, and this photo was taken prior to straightening my whole head with the brush.

So what is Dafni Go? 

In essence, it is a hairbrush and straightener merged in to one. You simply plug it in, press the on button and wait for it to heat up, and then brush and watch your hair straighten. There is no heat setting and the brush remains heated at 18'C which is safer and also less damaging to your hair, whilst giving optimal results from root to tip. The product itself costs £99.99 and can be purchased direct from the Dafni website. It includes the travel case and detachable cord. 

My thoughts on Daphne Go 

As I mentioned, my hair is pretty thick so I was intrigued to see if this was going to work on me or not. I straightened my hair in two layers, and it did leave my hair smoother but because I was also brushing out all the tangles my hair looked quite 'puffy' and thick at first. I left it to settle whilst I carried on getting ready for our party and then I was good to go. It actually worked a lot quicker than when I use a GHD as I usually do it in thinner layers and have to use an additional hairbrush to comb through the hair as I go along. 

My only worry was that because it's a 'stiff' brush, I wouldn't be able to curl in the bottom of my hair in so my layers wouldn't flick out. I did notice it looked a bit Farrah Fawcett along the tips, but I just held on to my hair as I curved the brush in and the problem was fixed. I love the practicality of it, especially for travelling. It comes in a compact case with space for the brush and cable (and you could add your clips and bobby bins too if you wanted), and it also means you don't have to pack a hairbrush either.

I tried the product on my sister who's hair is longer and thinner than mine and it worked excellently for her. I think it's a product that wouldn't work great on people who don't have really thick curls, but does the job for other hair types.  Whether you're looking for a tool you can take travelling with you or something that you can work into your morning routine before work, the Dafni Go does the job.

What is your hair routine like? Do you like to go natural or do you often straighten or curl it?
