I'm sure it's been done to death, but should I buy GHD's????
I'm bit crap with doing my hair, and it's a bit unruly (not curly, just a bit big). I've got a couple of pairs of straighteners but they're a bit rubbish. I thought if I got some GHD's I can wash, straighten, and have decent looking hair for a few days with minimum fuss.
I was all ready to get DH to order some from Amazon (the cheapest I've found, £94) when I started to read the one star reviews and it's put me off slightly. I definitely wouldn't get them from Amazon, as there were quite a few reviews suggesting they were from a dodgy source. But my local Supercuts sells them for £99.
Yes, they are definitely worth it. Even if you don't want super straight hair, you can use them for smoothing down frizz, taming a fringe etc. GHD are a milion times better than any others I have tried. They glide through your hair, others seem to drag I find.
I've had mine for years now, they are great. I did get mine because my mum had a pair and they blew up whilst plugged in so she ran out and bought a new pair whilst hers were being repaired (how vain!) and then found herself with two pairs so I gratefully took a pair off her hands
I've had mine for 3 years. They are brilliant and absolutely worth the cash. My hair isn't curly - just a bit frizzy, and I can either spend half an hour attempting to blow dry it properly with a round brush, or rough dry it and "iron" it with my GHDs.
I've had mine for about 6 years, and they've been one of the best purchases I've ever made. I am similar to you I think in that I don't want to spend a huge amount of time on my hair, or wash every day, and if I use my GHDs this is fine. If not I really need a wash every day.
well worth the money - buy through a hairdresser though, or direct from GHD
