I need new straighteners. Have been using GHD Max for as long as I can remember. Are these the best ones to get for my shoulder length thick wavy hair or are there other options?

Not concerned about budget, just want quick and easy to use with best results. Opinions please!!

future I can recommend these 100%. I have an older model, I got these 2-3 years ago. I used to use ghds but these are actually better.

I have ghds but my hairdresser uses diva straighteners and they are amazing! I think they are about half the price of ghds.

My hairdresser uses diva.
I have babyliss but my hair is not very thick.
The ones suggested from Argos are £28.00 on Amazon with very good reviews

Thanks all. I have ordered some Diva ones mainly because the Remington ones don't have auto shut off and I have form for leaving them on....!!

Hopefully they live up to your recommendations smile

Cloud Nines! I used GHDs for like 10 years. My hair is really thick and wavy and takes a long time to straighten/wrangle. GHDs were pulling at my hair and causing breakage. When my last pair gave up the ghost my hairdresser recommended Cloud 9's. I have never looked back, they're amazing, glide through my hair and it doesn't take half as long to straighten my whole head. The ones I own have 2 heat settings too.

My dd wants some new straighteners. I thought GHDs. She has fine hair.

Are there better ones.

Cloud 9's are much better than GHds for my very thick/frizzy hair. I've also discovered the joy of having a Dyson hairdryer. The two together save 30-40 minutes off drying and straightening my hair

I thought I may buy the Panasonic ones in Boots.

I've been using my Babyliss ones that were fairly cheap when I bought them about 8 years ago and they're still going strong and have no complaints.

I like the wide plate Cloud 9 ones. They suit my hair much better than GHD's (which seem far too hot compared to the 9's).

I've the loreal steam pod, it's fab and hasn't damaged my hair at all.
