What kind of straightening iron do you like to use?
« on: January 27, 2019, 05:22:17 AM »
I've been meaning to grab a hair straightening iron for ages, but never got around to it.  Any particular ones that have worked really well for ponies specifically?

I use a small travel hair straightener. I think it works better because its so small. But then again, it has no heat settings so you have to be more careful. I've never managed to melt anything though. Just use alot of water and conditioner.

I used normal sized straightening iron before, and the results were ok but nothing compared to when I use the small one.

1" ceramic plated straightener with temperature control...

I prefer 1inch over travel (which the one I used was 1/2 inch) because I can pull hair thru in a smoother, faster way.

One with a kickstand on it so it can heat up / cool down without looking around frantic for a safe surface when the phone rings, but not with a very strong spring in the hinge the better to have the hair released with ease, dislike the ones that snap back with with a kick if you are a bit shaky that day. Me... I like my really long one... because easier not to get any hair caught around the hinge when the surface is longer than the mane. Makes it all less stressful should anyone distract you  :pout: and your mane slides down a tad, you'll still be fine if you look around.  :water:

Any kind.  I think my current is a cheap Conair.  Just get one with a temperature dial or setting.
