Hello I've had my trusty ghd's for over 10 years now. They still work perfectly well but I noticed in the hair dressers last week that when she used up to date modern ones they just glided through my thick hair rather than needed to be pulled through like straw!!!! Is there a difference between ones now and ten years ago? Thank you!
Got mine in 2001 or 2002 before my first dc was born, I don't use it daily but would put it on a few times a week. Its working fine. not very helpful but I don't think the ones being made today will last 10+ years
Thanks all! That's what I thought but suddenly wondered if I'm missing out on some special new thing! My old ones work, they straighten so I don't need anything else I guess! Thanks - my husband will be pleased as that's saved us over £100! 😂
Maybe use a straightening spray that helps my hair go smooth from straw like. Loreal 3 day straight. Beware if u spray it on a your hair over a laminate floor gets very slippery. Also have my ghds for years upon years maybe because I don't use them everyday but I'll keep them until they go bust rather than buy a new pair
I think it's the product the salon used that's made the difference, not the GHDs
I too have GHDs that are over a decade old and I replaced them this summer with some new ones because I as convinced they must be better ........they're not in my experience, they definitely don't straighten my hair as well. I keep my old pair at my DP's for when i stay over there occasionally but I miss them I'm thinking of swapping them for the new pair
I have just replaced my over 10 years old ghds.... new ones are fab! My hair is straighter, they glid through my hair and don't 'pull' like my old ones and it stays straighter longer for some reason. I don't use any 'spray' other than heat protector and I use them every day on my wavy long hair.
