    They're for a friend, so if anyone used them - would you recommend it?

    btw, what temperature do you recommend for when using straighteners?

    well cheap straighteners never usually work althought the temperature on them seems to be quite high...
    GHD are around 230 degrees I think

    I don't recommend anything but GHD's.

    And for 7.99, I doubt they would be amazing...

    I doubt they will be very good for that price. You usually get what you pay for with this type of thing.

    will she be using them often?
    does she have thick/fine hair?
    is her hair very curly?

    it really depends on who's using them and for what.
    I've got crazy cheap straighteners but they're fine for me because i've got fine hair and use them once or twice a year. they would be a bad idea for someone with thick curly hair who straightens daily.

    As others have said, for less than £10, they're unlikely to be very good.

    Tend to agree with everyone else.
    I just got some babyliss essence 230 straighteners.. something like that anyways.
    They have a high heat on them and work fast, for under £30 they are brill!

    I am a bit of brand snob and can't afford GHD's so always go for Remington, mine were £20 but they were on special offer down from £40 so may be a bit out of your price range. At £7.99, i doubt they are any good. Mine also have a variable heat up to 230C.
