The festive fun doesn’t have to end on Christmas Day. While all the presents have been opened, Boxing Day and the subsequent January sales quickly take centre stage for those who use them to recover from the excesses of the main event and, of course, snap up a bargain.
Follow live: The best January sales to shop now
But despite the great tide of offers, which includes savings on big-ticket items like Apple AirPods (was £169, now £159, Very.co.uk) and Shark vacuum cleaners (was £349.99, now £189.99, Amazon.co.uk), there are some products that remain hard to get hold of at a great price.
Case in point – Dyson’s airwrap (£449.99, Johnlewis.com). The brand is known for its impressive deals during popular sales events, but we’re now in January, which typically marks the end of the discounts, and so far in the sales, we have yet to see any savings on the popular tool. In fact, it’s even sold out on Dyson’s own site and other third-party retailers such as Currys.
But don’t lose all hope just yet. As ever, the bargain hunting team here at IndyBest is here to help and we’ve spotted one of our favourite alternatives to the airwrap in the sale – the ghd rise (was £169, now £135, ghdhair.com), which has an impressive 20 per cent off. Read on for our review of the tool and how to snap up the stellar offer.
ghd rise hot brush: Was £169, now £135, ghdhair.com
A fan favourite and IndyBest-approved brand, ghd has become synonymous with good hair days since its launch in 2001 but it has faced some stiff competition from Dyson in recent years.
Upon its release in 2018, Dyson’s aiwrap broke the internet thanks to its innovative technology and ability function as both styler and dryer but ghd quickly hit back with the launch of its very own hot brush, designed to give hair the shape and volume you’d expect from a blow dry.
In our head-to-head review of the two devices, our reviewer said the ghd rise helped their hair stay “wavy and bouncy late into the evening – something we thought only existed in our wildest beauty dreams.” They also praised the tool for its ability to minimise heat damage by using an infinity sensor and predictive technology which adapts the temperature to one best suited to your hair type and thickness.
When it came to comparing the two devices, our writer said that “if all you’re looking for is reliable volume and glamorous waves, the ghd rise is just as worthy an investment.”
