GHD Hair Straighteners
GHD Hair Straighteners are made by a company just down the road from me in Leeds and I have to say I feel sorry for them, this story goes back a few years now. First my 13 year old niece purchased a set from what she thought was an Official store and she ended up with fakes! Then I saw a program on the BBC about counterfeits and it featured GHDs mainly because the fake products were dangerous, to be honest I never thought much more about it until Becky wanted some then I started to look into this some more .. what a mine field so I used an authorised comparator for GHD Hair Straighteners but here is the Official GHD Website
But it looks like things have got so bad that GHD have setup a website checker to help customers, but when I looked at Google PPC over 70% were selling fakes and based in China so the chances are you’re not even going to get your Hair Straighteners ! I felt that maybe Google should do something about this I mean :
And the organic search results are just as bad, I feel that Google should step up here I know that competitor brand bidding can be a good thing but these things are dangerous at best you will have young girls upset at Christmas because they are fakes or don’t turn up, worse case young girls scarred for life at Christmas because they are faulty! I know Christmas is a little way off, but families will be starting to look at the purchasing options out there.
