Yes, 100%, I love my GHD's and they last for ages.

Yes, definitely worth the extra money

Wish I'd just bought them to start with instead of bothering with slightly cheaper alternatives. They are truly fabulous and worth every penny.

have recently given in and bought GHDs after trying a range of slightly cheaper alternatives and I have to say they are the best so far.

they really are. I have had mine for years so cost per use is virtually nothing. I've had friends who bought cheaper ones, but on a night out its my house they come to, to use my GHDs to get the best result.

Sometimes they do an "iron exchange", where you can swap your old straightening irons (literally any old make, I dont think they even have to work) for GHDs and they give you money off the new GHDs. This is how I got mine smile

I haven't ever used a pair of straightners that I think are better than my ghds. As long as you remember to use protection spray on your hair (I made that mistake a few years back) they are great and definitely worth the money! And also last longer than cheaper versions too, I've had mine for two years now and they still work totally fine!

i nearly bought ghd's but the lady in sallys reccommended corioliss ones - they were £59 and are as good on my (thick,mind of its own) hair on my hair as ghd's.

I've had mine for ages, i swear from about age 18, but i'm not sure if they were actually around back then but any way they have lasted the test of time and are still going strong. Totally love them grin

I went through a couple of pairs of cheaper ones but gave in and bought myself some GHDs last winter. Absolutely love them grin - others might be as good, but not the ones that I tried....

GHD's aren't great on my hair... I have thick, pubey, curly hair and usually use my old Remington irons instead of the GHDs.

Bellend (lovely name!) don't suppose you want t flog me your ghds do you?! My hair is very fine but I have loads of it.

BelleEnd Thu 11-Aug-11 22:21:53

Oh thanks for the offer but I can't really- They were a gift from my sis and I have to pretend to use them when she comes over... grin
