well mine work fine and my hair can be quite unruly. I'd save the £30 if I was you. Mine retail at £50 but I've seen them elsewhere for as much as £69 so I think they are a bargain!!

Damn, I was expecting a thesis on an economic policy.

I guess I'll have to wait.

damn I got ripped off with my ghds, I payed £97 for them and they were the classic ones, not the salon wide ones... ah well I suppose I'd burn myself even more with bigger ones.

HINT: Straightners get really hot (I managed to burn my scalp in a straight line by accident)

I doubt a babyliss straightener would work half as good as a GHD... (especially looking at the price!!!)

do you know what GHD stands for? (i heard it stands for Good Hair Day, which sounds way too simple)

no it really is good hair day...

My hairddresser persuaded me to buy ghds more than a year ago, before the hype, hehehe

The ones that are on the boots site arent the ones that I have. I dont have incredibly difficult hair so I dont need GHD ones my friend has them and they are good for her because her hair is impossibly curly normally but its a waste of money for me.

Nope.

THe cheaper ones are often COATED ceramic, thus you go outside and youll be curly/frizzy again.

The more expensive ones...from about 70 upwards are SOLID ceramic. Yeah baby!

i got the aforementioned (by viviki) babylis pro ones... 20 quid down from 50 bargain in boots. theyre solid ceramic, not coated and i hate to say it but they work better than when i have used GHD ones!!!! my friend, who incidentally works as a hair salon recpetionist, had a set of GHDs... oh yeah, before they BLEW UP!!! she refused to get another set after that and the hairdressers in the salon recommended the babylis ones - and she passed on the recommendation to me, by which time they were reduced . the handles are way more comfy too, and they seem to leave my hair shinier... BAAARGAIN.

GHD = good for curling and starightening and very quick
otherwise all hair straighters bascially do the same thing
uv = very cool! i use them and they look great
