I dropped and smashed my 15 year old cheap hair dryer and needed a new one asap. I was always unsure about how one hair dryer could be better than another and didn't really believe that a GHD could be any better than my other one that I had been using for years. I took the risk and got myself a Helios and I am angry at myself that I didn't get one sooner. It has legit changed my life. I have thick fine hair that takes FOREVER to dry and I thought that was just a thing that wasn't going to change. I used the Helios for the first time and my hair was completely dry in 4 minutes and it was smooth and silky with no frizz.
normally I would still be going at 10 minutes and I would give up and my hair would still be damp and frizzy. If you have been considering buying one, I am telling you now, just do it! I have been telling anyone that will listen.
