I got SCP Hair Straighteners Mk 5.2a for Xmas last year as a gift from my mum. She always went on to me about how she wasn't going to fork out £90+ on a hair appliance and I thought that was fair enough. She didn't want me to see the straighteners, she wanted them to be a surprise so I had no idea which one I was going to get.
I received them at Xmas and was delighted ! My hair is thick and curly and in my opinion damn annoying sometimes ! That morning it was just as usual so I plugged in... (read more)

I bought a pair of SCP Straighteners last Xmas. I have thick, quite curly hair. While these pair of straighteners do leave my hair straight, about a few minutes after I straighten it, or go outside, my hair does not stay straight for long. After an hour or two my hair was almost completely the same as it was before. I had my hair straightened in a salon once with GHD's so I know how good they are. I think these straighteners are miles off GHD's. They may be ok for someone with straight hair... (read more)

I bought my SCP'S because I couldn't afford GHD'S. I have asked many hair salons which are better GHD'S or SCP'S and they have all told me that SCP'S are the best because GHD'S (and not a lot of people realise this) are NOT solid ceramic plates where as SCP'S are solid ceramic plates. i love my SCP'S. I use them along with protecting products and I'm pleased with the results every time. I do have my hair done with GHD'S at the salon and I can honestly say that there seems to be no difference...

SCP Hair Straighteners are an Excellent product! 10/10! Its as good as GHD! I have owned 2 GHDs in the past and I came across this new SCP and they work and straighten exactly the same way, leaves hair shiny and healthy looking. Would recommend SCP over GHD any day! GHD too expensive and not worth when you can get SCP half the price and does the same job! (read more)

I was cautious in buying SCP Hair Straighteners from reading reviews but have to say i think they are amazing have been using them for the past month and once the plastic burning smell goes they are perfect. I have tried using friends GHD's before but they simply don't work on my hair however these just straighten with ease.
However if you are buying the straightening mist and serum do not buy online as I think they are overpriced. (read more)

I would personally give SCP Hair Straighteners 9/10 because of the quality, and the fact that the product is long lasting. My hair, when straightened is light, very soft and bouncy, and I don't have to spend 3 hours restraightening my hair afterwards because it's gone curly after 10 minutes!! (read more)

I have a pair of GHD's which I have had for 18 months. They were very expensive but very good. When my 13 year old, who has wavy hair, asked for some for her birthday last year, I looked for a cheaper alternative. I came on here and read the reviews and decided to try the SCP version.
What an absolute pile of rubbish they have turned out to be. I seem to recall the SCP site stating that GHD are not solid ceramic and so the coating on the plates rubs off but theirs are solid so this will not... (read more)

I'm a hair straighten-aholic, and I have been since my early teens. I have wavy and frizzy hair which is blonde, so I have to make it not look like candy floss.
I must have been through about 10 straighteners in my time, and they made my hair not wavy, but it was still quite frizzy.
A few months ago, I was having my hair done at my friends hairdressers for a night out, and she straightened it with the SCP straighteners. I couldn't believe my hair could look that straight and different. I... (read more)
