Hi everyone - do GHDs wear out? I bought v5.0 four years ago and I don't know if it's my imagination but I don't think they're as good as they used to be. They don't have a temperature indicator so I don't know if they still get as hot as they're supposed to, but they don't seem to straighten my hair as effectively or easily these days.
What should I buy next? More GHDs or the Cloud Nines everyone is talking about?
I've had my first pair of GHDs nearly 10 years and they still work (I use them as my traveling pair now), due to having a second home a few years ago I asked for another pair of straightners for Christmas and got cloud nines they worked as well as GHDs for about 2/3 months and then they broke needless to say they were returned and with my refund I bought another pair of GHDs their 5 year warranty takes some beating.
I reckon the older versions are the better quality ones - I think I remember reading somewhere that they changed manufacturer and the quality declined . . . again, who knows if this is actually true though!
