I’ve had it with my GHD!!! It was only a year old and wasn’t straightening or curling my thick, wavy hair the way my previous one did. The hot plates of the straightener felt terrible against my hair when using it to either straighten or curl my hair. My last GHD was seven years old, and it was incredible – why are the new ones so terrible?
I heard something about GHD now being manufactured elsewhere and people saying similar things about the lack of quality of the new GHDs compared to the old ones. If the new GHD’s were so bad, I had to find another alternative.
My friend has very thick and super curly hair and swears by her Cloud 9. I’ve never heard of this brand and was pretty impressed with the reviews I read about it online.
I was dressed and just about to head out to the city to buy a Cloud 9 when I received an email inviting me to check out a new beauty site called Active Skin.
Active Skin is an excellent site that offers so many brands (over 5,000) under the one roof – including Cloud 9. I couldn’t believe my luck! How cool to have come across this site that sold not only Cloud 9 but also sold other products I needed to buy. I liked the fact that they offer particular brands that are hard to find elsewhere such as BECCA, label.M, skinstitut etc. The email invited me to order something from Active Skin to test their website and products out, so I ordered:
- Cloud 9 – The original iron
- Redken – Extreme Strength Builder Plus
- GHD – Tail Comb
- Moroccanoil – Ceremic Large Round Brush 55mm
My order arrived a lot faster than expected and with some additional goodies including a travel size pack of Guinot skincare products. Who doesn’t love extra gifts in their order!
Overall, I was happy to buy everything from the one place and will be placing the future order with Active Skin; especially if I know, they stock brands that can be difficult to find elsewhere.
I’m interested to know if anyone else has had an issue with their GHD?
