I don't know about Slick Chick straighteners, but would go with GHD any day. I have been using them for about 8 years now and they really are the best I have found. Also I have only had to replace them once in that time. I don't think you will get them for much less than £80-£90. I have just bought a new pair for about £80 from Amazon. BTW I use mine at least once every day as I have very curly hair, and my hair is still in good condition.
I haven't used slick ones but I did have Phillips and 3 months ago I treated myself to GHDs. OMG!!! I have very thick, wavy, unmanageable hair and I have not had a bad hair day since I got my GHDs. If you can afford it I would say go for it.
I have ghd ones too and have had them for years. They are expensive but they are really good. I am sure I saw a magazine advert this week where you got some money off ghd if you gave in any other hair 'tool'.
GHD's and frizz ease are my bestest friends my hair is too straight for nice curls but too wavy to be straight and very wiry(IYKWIM) but with GHD's it lovely I've had mine three years and need some new ones. Don't know about slick chic but most hairdressers I know use GHD's.
GHD's totally stop your hair frizzing, although I do use serum too. My hair still curls if it gets wet, but in a nice way rather than in a nuts was. I just bought the ones for longer hair even though I only have shortish hair. The irons are wide enough without being too wide. It depends on how long your hair is
Definitely GHDs!!!! I've got thick frizzy curly hair and these are the only ones that work - and keep your hair straight between washing despite damp weather. You probably won't get them much cheaper than £90 but they are the best investment you can make for your hair IMO. I've had the same ones (set? pair? one? whatever!) for about 5 years and they're still fine.
ooh I think I'll save up for a pair in that case. I thought they were all the same in response to dampness which is the bane of my life. I've got almost waist length thick curly hair with a tendency to frizz no matter what products I use
