So, over the years I have owned so many pairs of straighteners. I have tried different styles, different makes and a whole host of different coatings that are meant to be good for your hair. Nothing could ever compare to my trusty GHD’s. Now, I’m not talking the ones you can get now, I’m talking about the very first pair I got back in around 2003/4. I still owned these until about 3 months ago when they died their final death, no repairs could save them. They had done me proud and served me well over the years, needing to be repaired once in that time.
I was straightenerless (is that even a word? It is now!) and devastated, as even though I don’t straighten my hair every day I need a good pair of straighteners to get my hair to how it needs to be. You see I have very curly hair, and if you want to see how curly just look at this rare curly-haired (drunk) Instagram picture.
Luckily I was able to borrow Tapangas’ straighteners to tide me over until I found a pair I really wanted, another pair of GHD’s I had handed down. I did my research and the Cloud Nine The Touch Straighteners came out on top. I just had to find the best place to get them.
Luckily in my search a company called Octer got in contact and bought themselves to my attention.
What is Octer All About?
Octer is like a market place of the UK’s biggest stores where you can shop by department or store. You can then compare the brands and prices. You can save items to a wishlist for later or choose to buy them then and there.
I found the straighteners that I wanted just by typing in ‘Cloud Nine The Touch’ into the search bar on the Octer site. You can however just browse by department, as the site is really easy to navigate and I have found some right bargains. Once you have clicked on buy now the site will redirect you to where the item is actually being sold, where you complete your purchase.
I actually really like the idea of shopping like this as it takes out all the aggro of searching for a bargain yourself. My straighteners were listed for £99 by one company and £79 by another, so I bagged a £20 saving instantly. I was also able to get them in white, a colour I didn’t even know they stocked until I saw them on the Octer site.
What are the straighteners like?
The Cloud Nine The Touch Straighteners are the best straighteners I have used. It’s a big claim but it’s so true, they glide through the hair so effortlessly. You click them together to turn them on, if you feel like the heat is too high/low tap three times and it changes the temperature.
They heat up instantly, less than a couple of seconds and these are ready to go. There is no drag on the hair and they also create really nice curls/waves. I absolutely adore them and I am so glad I purchased them.
Over all my experience with using Octer and the Cloud Nine The Touch Straighteners have been an excellent, I would thoroughly recommend them both.
Head over to the Octer Website to have a look and you never know you might grab yourself a bargain.
