Re: Hair Straighteners...


There really is no substitute for GHDs, IMO. I tried several cheaper brands because I balked at price the of GHDs. None came anywhere close and it was very much a false economy - I could have bought 2 or 3 GHDs with what I spent trying to find a decent alternative

Having said that, the next best ones I tried were by 'Hair Tools' and looked very like GHDs but the results were nowhere near as good.

Ok i'd always say GHD, can't fault them, but there's some cheaper ones CHS and they are brilliant too. I have both but my CHS on the way out.

Whats GHD? I have very thick curly hair (the original white afro) and would love to be able to straighten it well, the cheap ones don't make any difference!

The hairdresser told me yesterday, I'd be ok with anything that got hotter than 200 degrees. They don't use GHD in the salon. May just see what's available when I'm out today.

Re: Hair Straighteners...


Right, even hairdressers have trouble straightening my hair but if I could do it regularly it would be something but looks like a tad out of my finances at the moment!

I've had 3 sets of straighteners but you can't beat the Remington 'wet to straight' wide plates. They are fab! Don't forget to use a heat protector for your hair, TRESemme does the job and leaves your hair silky soft
