ghd platinum model hair straighteners have caused repairers headaches ever since they were released. So why is there such a big problem with repairing them? For the answer to this question we need to know the difference between the ghd platinum and earlier models. The original ghd hair straighteners were built very much for functionality and a simple technology that was reliable and fairly basic. This basic design and build made it relatively simple to open and change components within the design. The body was screwed into place and the components on the electrical components were largely traditional.
