    Anyone ever bought them from ebay? There's loads selling for around £15, so cheap :eek:

    I bought some remington ones from Argos 2 years ago, bought it for £35 and for a year they were really good, took around half an hour to straighten wavy hair. Now its just lost its touch, it doesnt straighten the ends and I always find some wavy/curly bits. So I thought I'd get some GHD ones, the wettodry ones.

    I dont trust ebay's items. So if anyone has bought any GHD's recently from ebay, please let me know, which exact ones and if they do what they say.
    Thanks :tsr:

    :ditto: and they have been fine.

    are your sure its the straighteners that have "lost touch" and your hair isnt in poor condition?

    If you send them back to GHD they send out a brand new pair - so youl probably get new ones!

    There are some salons where you can take your old straighteners back and get some money off GHDs. It's around £20 off I think so I recommend it if yours were only £35 a while ago.
