Here i will show you how to avoid buying a fake ghd.
This guide is free & is to help out poeple like your selfs so its important to help promote it and educate others.!!

Lets Start!


example (a) fake ghd mk3

check this picture, you will come across this when looking for ghd's on ebay
this item comes in pink and black (we used pink as an example)

1. Notice the white lable marked (1) this shows a safety warning of shower head (all items showing this are fake)
 Also notice a very small hologram on the white lable roughly 1cm x 1cm  aslo shown below in example (b)
(No serial numbers, bar code, etc) (fake)

2. Notice the safety booklet is presented in a see through plastic sleve. this is another sign of fake ghds.
Look inside the booklet.... can you see any sign of bad printing.. words and writing not clear? (fake)

3. Notice the wire attached to the iron, marked (3)  this shows a short thick end of the wire. whilst the real ghd should have a more
round and longer thick part coming out of the iron. compare to the fake squarish looking one in example (a)



example (b) close up of fake ghd lable

 


example (c) real/genuine ghd mk3 pink

1. notice the booklet comes in two, ( safty instructions & user manual) they are not shiney and not presented in a plastic sleve.
2. notice a longer thicker rounder end of the wire coming out of the iron. comepare this to example (a)



example (d) real ghd mk3 black

1. agaon notice the two booklets in this example ( Real)
2. check the colour on the box compare to example (f) below. The real ghd box in this exmaple is more yellow-ish & lighter.
3. look at the hologram on example (d) - compare this to example (b). more close up pic in example (e)



example (e) real/authentic ghd lable sticker 4cm x 4cm always stuck on the white tag coming off the wire.


this is a example of real ghd hologram sticker thats stuck to the white table coming off the wire on example(d)
compare this to example (b)
seen the difference yet?

 


Example (f) fake ghd box


this is a example of a fake black ghd box
notice more colour and more towards dark gold rather then light yellow. compare this to example (d)

Now, what questions will you as a seller before buying a ghd?

1. Where is this ghd coming from? Needs a valid answer
2. Is there two booklets with the item? Yes is good, but No may still be valid if not new
3. Does the iron have 2 hologram stickers (1 on the iron and 1 on the white lable coming off the wire? Yes is a must
4. Does the hologram coming of the wire have a serial number & bar code & ghd webite? Yes is a must - like example (e)
5. Ask to see pictures of all of the above if not already shown!!!

If in any event the seller fails to answer yes to 3 & 4 of the above then they may be selling a fake!
If the seller fails to show pictures to back up there answers then be awre!
If seller fails to reply to you then be very aware!
