Once you go straight-ironing, you never go back! It's a tool gifted from the pony-gods!

I just recently tried using one also.  It is such a wonder for Fruffy hair. ;)
  I can't belive how well it works.
 It does worry me a little when I see steam or what ever raising, but I have not burned anyone yet. :P

When you say flat irons, do you mean hair straighteners? What temperature did you use them on? I'm itching to try on a few of my flyaway ponies!

Your Argies look lovely! :3

mine doenst have a temp setting but i know others say to put it on low heat, use water and conditioner when you iron :)

I only wish I hadnt been so scared... I could have been doing this all along!!  :throw: :shakefist: :doh: :argh:

I want and need one! My new Wigwam and Lemon Treats are frightfully frizzy. Maybe I can find one on the cheap at Shopper's Drug Mart or something.

I picked mine up at a thrift store, there were a lot to pick from and I plugged it in and tried it out to make sure it worked, but get one that has the smaller surface.  You can also get wide ones but my friend was in there that day and she's a hair dresser and she said the thinner ones are better then the larger ones. ;)

Awesome! Another trip to the Value Village then. (And maybe there will be more ponies, too.)
