Yuck! I prefer ghd for both.

I love my GHDs which are still going strong but my hairdresser thinks (& I trust his judgement) that now the cloud 9s are better and if you need to replace that they are better than the current crop of GHDs

Cloud 9's are better than new GHD's. Parlux for hairdryers.

I had a similar thread and someone suggested getting the GHDs repaired for £25. Which I did and now they're as good as new.

My hairdresser reckons that cloud 9 are miles better than GHDs.

I bought some cloud 9 last week they are amazing. My hair is so soft and swishy. The old GHDs left my hair dry and frizzy.

I was a ghd user for ten years. I loved them all.

Got cloud 9s for xmas andy hair is healthier shinier and I'm in love with them. I have super curly hair so need to buy good ones!!

Thanks guys, put a similar post on Facebook and GHDS winning, mainly due to reliability, my currently GHDs have been in service since I was 17, 15 years ago!

Which model of parlux? X

My new GHD are not as good as the old model

MrsS1990 Sun 03-Apr-16 19:26:46

Have the people saying ghds tried cloud 9s yet?

Indecisivejo Sun 03-Apr-16 19:37:28

I HATED ghds I sold them! They use cloud 9 in my hairdressers and they are much better!

firsttimemum15 Sun 03-Apr-16 20:54:34

What's the diff between the cheaper cloud 9s on their website (white etc 99quid and the supposedly original ones 12 quids? )

Not tried cloud9 so can't comment on straighteners but DH bought me a GHD hairdryer and it's excellent. Really powerful, dries really quickly without leaving my hair feeling dry/frizzy.

Ghd were the best irons you could buy until they sold the company a few years ago. Cloud 9 are definitely better now .

Cloud9's and Parlux

Used GHD for years, my second pair were crap from day one always snagging my hair, eventually they didn't seem to reach the full temperature so I decided to buy Cloud9 wide iron and they are amazing, they make my hair silky and swishy and you can change the temperature which is really handy. I don't even have to use the hottest temperature to straighten my hair. They are made by the same people who made the original GHD, will never buy GHD again.

I just bought the Parlux 385 Powerlite (thanks ladies of MN). Really rate it and my hair looks much better when I dry it. Ordered via Parlux and got free straighteners with it. Haven't used them so have no idea what they're like.

missapples Sun 03-Apr-16 21:52:05

Mustbethin that's really interesting

I don't know what to do hmm

evelynj Sun 03-Apr-16 21:57:23

Apparently a diva hairdryer from Sally's is as good as the parlux but under £50. Lots of people have rec'd it on another thread. I thought my hairdryer had broken-it's over 20 but the bloomin thing started working again & I feel bad replacing it while it's still doing its job. Maybe when it's my birthday.....

Fevertree Sun 03-Apr-16 22:00:22

Love my cloud 9's have had them for over 5 years now and still prefer them to my friends' ghds both old and new

missapples Mon 04-Apr-16 14:32:03

I've gone for the GHDs wide plate and a Parlux 365 seriously skint!

how can one hair dryer be better, hot air is hot air surely?
ditto straighteners?
