I've got a set of GHD's which has a dodgy plug, i have to wiggle it to keep the d*mn thing going. I don't wrap the wire around them & no damaged them myself in any way, but have been told this is a technical fault with this model. No-one seems to have answers what i can do though. I've tried taking matter up with GHD company by way of an email but not received any reply from them, though i think i'm out of the time scale for any 'free' repair/replacement, had them for 2 yrs now. The GHD has a two pin (european style) plug which goes into the bottom of a UK 3 pin plug. It is the two pin plug which i have to wiggle the wire of. Can i cut off the two pin plug completed and just wire up a UK 3 pin plug to the wires. I don't know what wire are inside unless i cut it off, but don't want to do this unless i know for sure. Has anyone had problems or done this sort of thing to their GHD's? please i can't be without them any length of time, coz i get fuzzy hair (80's style) after a wash! Thank you for any ideas.

Changing plugs would change power input to the tool, this could cause u to be electricuted or a fire.

Dont mess with electrics....take them to an electrician for professional advice & attention.
Not sure about your specific plug problem but I had a pair of GHDs for way longer than that and when they broke I posted them back to GHD and they sent me a brand new pair!
I had mine longer than 2 years as well and i got a new set when i sent mine back. Go to your nearest stockist and ask for a "GHD Return Bag". All you need to do is fill out a wee form and fire it in the post. You should get them back in a fortnight. Borrow somone elses or buy a cheap pair in the mean time.
What is a GHD or should I not go there?

my GHD's kept cutting out due to a fault where the wire meets the straightener. If you look on ebay there is a guy who repairs them for you. It cost me �11 and I had them back within 3 days!! I think he is just known as GHD-guy.

Braveheart: GHD's are hair straighteners and GDH is that tradename of a particular company who make them (I believe?). They are the best around, there are cheaper options for the straighteners though.

Oh and thanks all for your answers, i'll try sending them back to GHD... MLx
