You can get cheaper ones that are good - DPs sister has a pair that were about £40 and she raves about them, but I suppose it depends on your definition of cheap! I had a pair that cost about £30 and tbh they were fairly crap - sorry.
theres not much difference pricewise between new and 2nd hand ghd's. Have a look on ebay and you'll see. I have the old old ones, and they still work fine, i bought the baby pink ones and sold them for pretty much what i paid, i bought the thick ones, but ive got my hair cut and im back onto my old ones.
I dont think ditching the broadband would help at all! It would make me worse off i think, no tesco home delivery means busfairs and somehow getting a buggy and a trolly around the shops, then a taxi home because too many bags for the bus. Plus youd prob lose contact with a lot of people too!!
Back to straightners! My sisters ones are good * texts her to find out what they are * I use them when i'm at her house They are babyliss ceramic ones. I can't tell the difference between them and my ghds.
I think ghds were the best when they first came out, but now theres so many different ceramic plates.
I used to have GHDs before they just stopped working on me,i thought it was the end of the world haha! Ive now got Remington protect and shine i think they are,theyre from argod got then in the sale £29.99 and i think theyre just as good x
