I had Christmas with my parents last night (they were down visiting this week... they won't be back until mid-March). They got me an ionic ceramic flat iron for my hair (been mentioing I'd been wanting one). Tried it out today and it works pretty good. Helped tame the split ends along the hair shaft so it lays flatter. I've heard the gold plated and jade plated ones fry your hair but the ceramic ion ones work much better.
I really wanted the True Ceramic Pro I saw on TV (Ulta has it on sale right now for $99) but the $50 Conair one my folks got me is probably just as good.
Now I just need to learn how to do curls with the darn thing!
