Title says it all really, any recommendations?

Cloud 9? I think made by original Ghd manufacturers before brand was sold off. Only available in salons and direct I think.

I have some wide plate Toni & Guy cheap ones - they were about £40. I've always had GHDs and I find these are much better for my hair (thick, curly, mid-length).

These are gorgeous, I love them, and use them every day. They are £74.99 in Argos, and have just found them £29.99 in John Lewis:

thebestfurchinchilla is right. Cloud 9. Way better than ghds.

what is it you don't like about the GHDs and what model do you have?
I have the wider plate one and it is much better than the normal thin ones. I really like it.

Apparently GHDs are not what they used to be...

Thanks so far everyone! It's funny because my hairdresser uses cloud nine and I've always thought they seemed good!
I will check out the other link too thank you.
I have the coral ghds but they just do not straighten well I have to go over hair loads and my hair isn't even thick! It seems ghds are like marmite.

Corioliss- titanium plates, temperature control and cheap.

My hair is quite fine and I don't like ghds either. I had one pair that blew up in my hand and another where the thermostat went and I singed quite a lot of my hair before I realised. I ended up having to have my hair cut quite short.

I use remington ones now that I bought on Amazon - they're really cheap. They have an adjustable temperature which works better for me as I don't need them to be quite so hot.

Yes I heard GHDs aren't as good as they used to be. I had GHD IVs and they were fine but my hairdresser said she sent her GHD Vs back. I went for Cloud Nine in the end when the thermostat went on my GHDs and am very happy with them. I like the temperature control which you don't get with GHDs

Another vote for Cloud Nines here. Not cheap but worth it!

CarrieLouise25 Thu 21-Jan-16 16:24:25

No worries. Hope you love them as much as I do! x
