I've had my GHDs for 10 years and they're still excellent. Only trouble is they have thick plates and i now have very short hair so struggling to use them. Would love to get new straighteners, I assume GHDs are still the best??? Should I go for normal plates or thin ones? Or is there another option I should consider? Thanks!

Apparently new GHDs aren't a patch on the new ones. I use Cloud 9.

*aren't a patch on the old ones

Oh I'm very out of date! Is cloud 9 an older one then? But newer than IV?

I have the original GHDs that are still going strong but I never use them anymore as I much prefer my Steampod

I bought Cloud 9 and they broke after 6 months. I'd had my GHDs for about 6 years. I didn't find the Cloud 9 straighteners any better than my GHDs either.

I'm using a £25 Vidal Sassoon at the moment. Intended for it to be short term but they do the job perfectly fine.

The newer GHD's really aren't very good.

Cloud 9 is a brand, not a GHD model.

You can get different sizes of GHDs thin ones for short hair / fringes or extra wide ones. Check them out.

My ghds just conked out after years of use. I replaced them in desperation with a £19.99 Remington pair on offer from argos and I can't even tell the difference! I'd never bother with ghds again.

Other companies can now use the same technology that GHD cornered the market market with all those years ago, so you can definitely spend less these days. I have a pair of Babyliss Boutique ones that are just ad good, if not better than GHD's and were less than half the price.
