Just posting this as a joke even though they exist
GHD's for £120 or theses for a fraction of the price but if you hang onto receipt they are covered by 12 month warentee so unlimited straightners for life as they won't last 12 months at this price

If its a deal - a deal isnt something thats bad for you (or your hair in this case)
not voted as you explained - posted as a joke

Do they actually work though? Do they generate enough heat to straighten properly? Or do they just make your hair frizzy and fly away?

Why is aluminium bad?

Reason for asking is I see women on hair salons on the telly with bits of aluminium foil in their hair..

Even Tesco's Value electrical products have to go through quality control, they wouldn't by law be able to put something on the shops that's bad for you, they'll more than likely be awful though - albeit, I know nothing about hair straighteners.

Just to dampen the OP's fire a bit - you wouldn't get "free straighteners for life" because no matter how many times they replace a faulty set - the SoGA/warranty applies to the first set - e.g. sooner or later it will run out (it does not renew everytime you swap them).

You could pull this off if they agreed to refund you each time (and they're not entitled to AFAIK) and you bought a new set with the cash - except they'd not have any perhaps

As for whether they damage hair - no-one knows that and speculation is worthless frankly...

What I can tell for for absolute 100% certainty is that GHDs at £120 are not 60+times better

The idea that cost is an indicator of quality is wrong - although there are limits perhaps

Surely all hair straighteners/dryers etc are bad for your hair?

Crazy price, any one actually tried them?

My other half did and she went back out and brought some completely different ones saying the values wherent hot enough!

that's scalp meltingly good!!

Wrong, if you have goods replaced under warranty the replacement is covered by the same warranty period. This is based upon any goods being provided have to be of merchantable quality, whether theyre replacements or not. The warranty ensures this.

Secondly, GHDs ARE 60 times better than these. If you multiply together how much quicker they are, how much less they will wreck your hair, how much better a job they will do, you'll get to more than 60x better.

Cost usually is an indicator of quality. The age old phrase 'you get what you pay for' - is, in many cases, completely true. Sure, cost/quality isn't always completely directly proportional, but thats the premium you pay for when you want something considered 'best in market'.

My favourite straighteners were £5 from Tesco 2 years ago.

I had Tesco value straighteners a few years ago (cost about £10 at the time) as I didn't want to spend on something I wasn't convinced would work on my very curly/frizzy hair. They were ceramic coated and worked just fine (I think the design has changed since then as you used to be able to set the temperature manually). I only changed them as I saw a "prettier" pair (white with orange flowers - yes sad I know!) and they were more expensive, but nowhere near as good. I then moved onto a more expensive pair again and they were OK - but I still didn't find them as good as the Tesco ones. I recently bought GHDs (an offer on here no less) and they are definitely the best ones I have had (and have even had several nice comments about my hair since using them).

So all in all I would say Tesco value ones are good if you don't want to spend around £100 on straighteners (but from my experience the GHDs are definitely the best). Good deal though!

In theory, you are correct.

However, I imagine Tesco are like Asda. I had a DVD player from Asda that went faulty after about 10 months and they simply refunded the money. I then bought another one which again went faulty just under a year. The same thing happened, they gave me cash which I used to buy yet another DVD player!

The latest DVD player is still working after 15 months. However, I effectively had a DVD player that was still under guarantee almost 3 years after buying the first one.

Why expired they had about 20 in my local please unexpire

My Remington straighteners were £35 over 5 years ago, ceramic, still going strong and better than any GHDs I've tried IMO.

These would be OK for travel surely? It's a good price I think.

my girlfriend had these and they aren't brilliant, they caught her hair and didnt do a very good job straightening it.
but still £1.75 is not bad

You seem to be a bit confused - there's the SoGA (retailer: fit for purpose, merchantable quality, reasonable lifetime) and there's the Warranty (manufacturer: their terms entirely) - the 2 are completely separate.

The SoGA applies only to the original purchase - any replacement must be off merchantable quality/fit for purposes of course but the 'reasonable lifetime' applies from the date of first purchase in the event of a dispute - not the date of replacement.

A Warranty's terms are set by the manufacturer - duration, conditions - all entirely upto them. Generally speaking, warranties do not 'renew' when you get a replacement item either but it's upto the manuf..

In your opinion and completely unverifiable.

As someone has already said - ALL hair straighteners damage your hair - I seriously doubt there's a direct link between price and damage

Given you're damaging your hair anyway - you want something which does a good job tho - that's really the factor in question here.

Price is a rough indicator of quality but more often than not we pay for 'brand' or for (largely imaginary and not based on any science') marketting claims of superior performance.

My partner's had 2 pairs of GHDs - one failed at 13 months and despite being 'out of warranty' we forced the retailer to replace them based on the 'reasonable lifetime' of a £90 product - the 2nd pair lasted only 10 months - this isn't speaking for their quality methinks.....

A Revlon set bought to replace them - for £35 - worked for 3 years - go figure...

got these for the girlfriend about a month ago, because they are multi voltage 100v-250v, which she needs cause were off to florida in 3 weeks. she tried them an said they're fine. so you could buy dearer ones an think they're the dogs danglies only to take em on hols for them to get mildly warm cos they're bein fed half the power they're designed for. awesome deal next multi voltage ones were ove 30 quid

I keep hearing people saying how GHDs are the only ones to have as they work so much better than all the others, but surely straighteners are just 2 pieces of material that are heated up to a certain temperature and pulled down the hair thereby straightening it. How can one brand be so much better than all the others? Me thinks it is very good marketing by GHD, and a commission for the salons plugging them and associated products!! Give the £1.75 ones a go, it is not rocket science it is just heat - which I am adding to this post by the way!

Because if this does not generate enough heat it will do nothing, and if its not made out of the best metal then it can snag your hair - Cause more damage. But if these do heat up and do the job then bargain, i'll stick to my GHDS lol :thumbsup:

According to my hairdresser, GHDs are only needed for Afro hair.

I think the OP refers to getting a refund and buying them again, hence lifetime supply (as long as tesco continue to sell them)
