I've got a pair off straighteners at the moment, but they are starting to get a bit old and messy! I just wondered if anyone knows of any relatively good and cheap straighteners - i'd love GHD's but REALLY dont have the money!! Any ideas?

Remington ceramics go for about £20 so GHDs must be super duper for the price they want for them....I'm sure someone will enlighten me! :p:

i got GHS straightners which are similar 2 GHDs for about £30. Theyre fine - but make sure u use a protector spray.

i used 2 have SAKS ceramics - they were great - £60 they cost...the only thing was that they exploded after 2 yrs - very scary but very funny...HAHAHA...but my friends are still working fine after 2 and 1/2 yrs.

only thing is - u have 2 order both of these online

I have the remington ceramics (oldest version, not 2x protection or whatever) and the work fine, just the results don't long as they do with GHDs, and it can go a wee bit frizzy

yeah i've just used those, they make my hair really straight for about 10 mins, after that it looks ok, just not poker straight, then by the end of the day it will have gone slightly wavey, it still looks ok tho.what i really hate about these straighterners tho is that the handle gets really hot, just on the bit part of your hand goes, well annoying!

GHD = good hair day, it's a make of hair straightener. A very good make of hair straightener, if they didn't explode so regularly.

I would recommend REMINGTON POWER CERAMIC

Sure they don't have the reputation of GHDs Though if you look at the reviews of them http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews8038.html
They are clearly top rated.

ADVANTAGES
- mighty cheap (5th of price of GHDs)
- 200C temperature
- heat up in 2 mins max.
- straighten well (suppose thats what you expect from STRAIGHTENers)
- won't blow up like GHDs

DISADVANTAGES
- doesnt hold the straighteness aslong as GHDs
- not solid ceramic

SO go out and get them!

I'm not just saying this- but GHD's are DEFINETLY worth it in my opinion. They heat up super fast and straighten your hair in quarter the time. Remington are good if you don't wanna spend too much money. I had the 2 times straight. Only problem is if you don't look after them well (which I don't ) the top coat of ceramic peels away which is not good for your hair!

I've got Babyliss Thermaglass 2160U ones for £20 in Wilkos when they're selling in Boots for £60. Okay, so their not GHD's but they work well, just take a bit of time and are good if you don't straighten your hair much.

As long as they are ceramic they should be A-ok.
Hair tools are good so i hear .. but id never be unfaithfull to my ghd's.
And please when you get your strighteners dont go for the poker stright look, it looks horrid, shows all your split ends up and basicly frazzles your hair. Natural curls are were it is at atm.

I use them and mine stays straight and doesnt go frizzy until it gets wet. The ends occassionally need a going over the next day after straightening but thats it

I have ones called "The Hot Miracle". Previously, I had GHD's but being me, I stood on them and broke them. These new straighteners were £20, but compared to GHD's, I don't notice a difference in how well they straighten! I'm very surprised by how good they are. I got them in a hairdresser supplier, but I'm sure you could find them online. If not, just look around for ceramic straighteners which heat up to above 200.
