ghd self-check breasts take control campaign

ghd has launched its Take Control Now campaign in partnership with Breast Cancer Now to encourage female clients to self-check their breasts for breast cancer at least once a month. The brand has embossed a monthly reminder on its new limited edition pink tools that says ‘Take Control Now’ and has created self-check breasts videos for hairstylists to share with clients.

ghd is donating £10 from the sale of its new limited edition pink collection to Breast Cancer Now as part of the campaign. The new limited edition collection include the ghd platinum+ pink limited edition, ghd gold pink limited edition and ghd helios pink limited edition. The professional tools are coated in a delicate dust pink and embossed with the central campaign message – Take Control Now to ensure women of all ages don’t forget to self-check their boobs at least once a month.

ghd has supported breast cancer charities globally for the past 16 years and to celebrate this anniversary it  has partnered with 11 incredible women who were diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 35. The 11 women are sharing their personal stories as part of the campaign’s key message to donate some mirror time to boobs and self-check every single month.
