    I've had my GHD's at least 4 years and I'm pretty sure my hair no longer straightens as well!
    Does anyone know if straighteners have a general shelf life?

    I'm thinking of buying a new pair but as most students I don't have a big bank account so want to make sure I need them and I get the right ones, so suggestions would be good too! (Particularly for thick curly hair).

    I think like most things they are only built to last so long so you have to buy more, like laptops etc. Depending on how often you use them, will affect this. But I found my straighteners stopped seeming to be as good after a while too, although I don't use straightners anymore now If you don't have enough money for GHDs, there are loads of less expensive but still good ones out there, depends on your budget - how much are you thinking?

    I'd recommend the Remington shine therapy straightner (i think they say its infused with Argan oil or avocado or something). Goes upto 230C. Remington also offer a 5 year warranty. Usually they just send you a new one. I purchased mines probably 6-7 years ago(?). It broke down twice and I was sent a brand new one.

    I don't mind spending money on them like GHD's but I wanna make sure if I get some they're the best ones for me! I've seen another pair called cloud 9 but not heard much about them and they're same price as GHD's.

    I had GHDs for just over 6 years which packed up on me the beginning of then. Since then I purchased the BabyLiss Ombré 235 straighteners and it allows you to choose the temperature which I've had over a year and I've had no problems with them. They're just as good as the GHDs
