I recently got a brand new pair of regular GHDs and they don't seem to work as well as my other set. They aren't too bad at straightening but when I try to curl my hair it just doesn't work. It's almost as if the plates are too slippery to hold the hair, if that makes sense. Does anyone know if this is just because they're new? Is this a flaw with the straighteners, or will it improve with time?

It's becuase they don't heat up to the same level as old GHD's.

I have some old ones and my niece has new ones and they don't straighten as well either.

Buy Cloudnine instead.

Interesting, as my daughter has just bought her third pair and my first pair ( bought at the same time as her first pair) have died. I couldn't afford the expense before Christmas so I bought myself some Remington one ( having taken into consideration the plates/heat etc) surprisingly they're fine. I have however tried my daughter's GHD's while she's out ( not that she'd care tbh) anyhow, I thought the difference between my Remington & her GHD's were non existent.


I've never hear of cloudnine - I'll look into those.

I was a proper GHD convert when I got my first pair and it was the only straightener that would actually keep my hair straight throughout the day, mine broke after about 2 years and I sold them on ebay for repairs for 30 and went on to buy http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles...-enough.396129 and they're even better than my GHDs, at the time I couldnt afford more GHDs so I had to settle for a cheaper replacement and glad I did as my broken GHDs paid for the new straightners and they're perfect. So heres another vote for Remington!
