Don’t have a bad hair day!! – Police Warning- over counterfeit straighteners and other hair products.

Watch out for fake ghd hair straighteners being promoted on Ebay, Google & Amazon. These fake products are being sold for around £60 to £80 and the websites often boast of large discounts.

The scammers behind these illegal websites will often use genuine looking domain names and official ghd graphics and logos to try and trick you.fake ghd border police 01-10-14scam 01-10-14

However, if the price is too good to be true then you are almost certainly buying a counterfeit product that is not made by GHD, not safety testedand may pose a significant risk to you and your home. We would strongly recommend that you only buy from genuine retailers.

City Council consumer watchdogs and GHD are warning shoppers not to get their fingers burnt by buying dangerous fake designer hair straightening irons.
The look-alike irons being sold on the internet on sites such as Ebay, Amazon and in and around cities. Counterfeit versions of the  top-rated traditional black GHD brand’s irons and all the limited edition’s  are also known to have been counterfeited. The genuine articles are on sale for over £100 to £200, but the counterfeit ones are being offered from anywhere between £60 and £100.

Low pricing is an indication that the iron may be a counterfeit or a diverted iron and the company advises consumers not to purchase these items as they do not meet the GHD health and safety standards, are illegal, and the irons could potentially be harmful as they have not gone through the company’s strict safety measures. Additionally, GHD does not offer any warranties on irons that have been purchased through unauthorized ghd retailers and does not replace counterfeit or diverted irons.

However to be certain you are not putting your pocket or most importantly your safety or your families safety at risk we at Jazz Hairdressing suggest you only buy from ghd’s own website www.ghdhair.com
