The problem with ghd's is you can't adjust the temperature-if your hair is really fine then it won't be necessary to straighten at a high heat all the time and will cause unnecessary damage and breakage-ice diamond straighteners are as good as ghd's in my opinion and have adjustable thermostat and are slightly cheaper at retail price-a lot cheaper wholesale x

I have fine hair and GHDs have always worked best, mainly because they are so hot that I only have to go over my hair once and it's done, whereas other cooler ones I've had in the past really dried my hair out bad by going over and over it to get it straight.

Have straightened my hair for about 10 years now and really want to get it back to its natural state. My hairdresser said only way is to stop straightening and it will go back eventually... I'm scared of this lol I've tried scrunching my hair and it goes wavy like it should naturally but then soon as it's dry it falls straight I've broken my hair lol

I have the same problem I cant put a curl into my hair except with the ghd's and my herstyler straighteners. The herstyler ones are cheaper than ghd's and I got mine off eBay (I also have the curling wand too).

To make the hairs strong and long. Vitamin E is very good and the best source Coconut oil olive and the mustard oil is also good for this purpose just massage in the hairs almost 20 minutes and was it. Do this daily and get strong and log hairs...

I bought these there meant to be just as good as GHDs and they also have a temp control for how thick your hair is


I love them kicking myself now though as I paid full price

I'd actually recommend cloud 9 straighteners (designed by the guy who started GHD!)
They have different heat settings which is especially good for fine hair as the 200-220 degree heat of GHD's will get your hair. Also the design of GhD's has changed in the last few years and the plates now don't clamp together as closely so they are not as good for find hair.
Cloud 9's are roughly the same price and bought in salons too. I work with hairdressers and 90% would recommend cloud 9's for respecting your hair (less damage) and performance, however if you want the name then go for GHd's xx

I always used GHD's and loved them although have found my hair thinning as they are so hot and you can't adjust the temp. About 6 months ago I bought a steam pod and it's fantastic! You can adjust the temp from 170 - 220. I always try to use the 170 with a really good heat protect spray and have noticed a difference in the thickness and healthiness of my hair in the last 6 months.

Anything over I think 150 degrees will damage your hair with no protection. Hence I try to use devices that don't go above 100 degrees (though I know this thread is old lol))

is it worth me getting myself some more expensive ones? Are there any that are particularly good for hair like mine??

p.s. i've been inspired by kirsty's GHD talk...lol

Yes it gives a huge impact to hair that which quality of hair styling device you are using if it is branded so it will definitely make your hair most soft straight & shinny I am using Remington’s straightener & the quality is ok but I will prefer that while applying straightener the hair serum you apply should be the best as I buy a branded serum from the perfume emporium coupons by reecoupon that makes my hair damn soft love to apply this while applying straightener.
