    What would you recommend I get? I have a really rubbish pair of metal plated straighteners - and are really really rubbish. I dont want to spend too much on them - thinking a max of about £30-£35.

    GHDs are the best ones, but theyre expensive. remington ones are good, but dont last that long. have a look in wilkinson i saw some remington ones in there for £20 the other day, and i think theyve got some on offer in boots. i havent even had my remington ones for a year and the ceramic coating is already starting to come of. ive also had a couple of people tell me that their ones have blown up, which is scary!

    Sob! I just noticed this thread and so thought I'd share. My hair straighteners have...broken!*gasps* My mum borrowed them and dropped them...now I have to go around with (horror of all horrors) unstraightened hair! :eek: They were nice Remmington wet2straight ones as well!
    From the sounds of it i'd best replace them with the ghds Bambi was talking about if they don't break easily!
    ( BTW- I wouldn't really recommend the wet2straight, although they are fab on dry hair they just take far to long on wet hair, and I'm not 100% convinced that they don't damage it...)

    The thread starter clearly says £30 - £35, and the GHD nuts still leave their mark. :rolleyes:

    I got some hair straighteners made at the same factory as GHD but they're called SHE and they work wonders on my hair which is naturally very curly. You can buy them of eBay and they cost about £27 including p&p.

    Those hair straighteners are diabolical. In the space of about a year and a half I had three. Seriously they're good at first but then they deteriorate. I had to keep taking the receipt back and get new ones!!! Remingtons is not that good quality and they'e bulky and eugh.

    I dont have the money to save for GHDs - If I could I would, but at the moment my bank balance is looking thin on the ground and I really really need to buy some new ones...

    You can also get some by Thermo Tools, I had some of them before I got my GHDS, they are a lot cheaper than GHDs but get just as hot with ceramic plates, (between £30- £50 depending on where you get them from), I got mine off ebay.

    For quality & durability though, you wont beat GHD or Kodo Im afraid.

    hmm, seems to be a mixed debate between remingtons and ghds

    i prefer my remingtons, and have had them for years without a problem. a few of my friends ghds blew up though! and i dont like them as much so they never get used!

    more expensive, is not neccesarily better quality

    I dont want to spend £100 on a pair of hair straighteners...I dont use them much, so it would be a waste of money. And it would be nice if I get a pair that dont cost too much and will mean that my hair stays straight for more than a day!

    They have a 3 year warrenty. Dunno where my reciept is, but they'll certainly be going back if they fail.
