I've seen various threads asking why the old Ghd s appear to work better than the newer versions. On BBC2 the other night there was a scientist from Ghd explaining that they had discovered that the safest temperature - the maximum at which the inner bonds of hair can cope without breaking - was 180 degrees, and their straightners used to be 220 degrees. Obviously people don't want to wreck their hair. But I thought the programme was really interesting! I have newer Ghds which I used to curl my hair!

I was so disappointed with the programme , nothing I didn't know already and loads of waffle about cheap shampoo not having much conditioner in it- no shit Sherlock!

Makes sense about GHD's though.

It was mostly fluff wasn't it, but some interesting things

I'd be interested to watch this does anyone remember the name of the programme?

It's weird that though, because I swear my hair is in much worse condition using the new style than it ever was with the old ones. Maybe it's because I have to go over and over it to get it straight now, which I never used to have to do!

I have the old one. Does that mean I shouldn't be using it or better still as they have presumably undertaken their own research, can I send my existing one back for a newly regulated one?
