When I saw the DiVA* range of straighteners and that they had a huge range of bright coloured ones, I was drawn in instantly. I've been in need of a good pair of straighteners for sometime but it's whether to take that jump from my current ones to the all amazing GHDs which is something I'm not sure I have the money for! I didn't really have many expectations for DiVA being a range I have little to no knowledge about. Except that they are the 'intelligent digital styler' I couldn't wait to test them out after having some fairly rubbish straighteners for a year or so.
The first thing I noticed about them is how quickly they heated up, I usually use the highest setting on Straighteners due to have thick hair which takes forever and a day to get straight. It took them 30 seconds to get the highest setting which is 220 Degrees which is pretty fast compared to my previous ones, and I know from using GHDs they do take around the same time to heat up. There are 6 heat settings on the Straighteners which are turned up and down by simply click an up and down button, the lowest they go down to is 120 and that heats up in 10 seconds, win!
If the pink isn't to your standard they offer lots of other colours, such as lime green, sky blue and purple haze, which is something different from your everyday black straighteners although they do come in Black.
The one bad thing I did notice about the DiVA straighteners was that they were quite stiff to start with and took a good week to 'wear them in' but I'm not sure if that's the case with all straightening irons? But none the less, they retail for £69.99 which I think is a middle of a road price for straighteners as you can get them for as cheap as £20.00 up to 100's or even thousands depending on the brand, but for the price I'd say these are a cheaper alternative to GHD straighteners and I will definitely be using them for a good while!
