How to go from Frizz to Silky Smooth with the Ping Ceramic Flat Iron

How to go from Frizzy to Silky Smooth with the help of the Ping Ceramic Flat Iron.

What you will need:

Ping Ceramic Flat Iron, Any Blow dryer,ABBA Pure Moisture shampoo & conditioner, Argan Oil, large tooth comb, hair clips.

Step one: Wash hair with ABBA Pure Moisture shampoo & conditioner
Step two: Towel dry and apply small amount of Argan Oil (Moroccan oil treatment) throughout hair.
Step three: Use large tooth comb to detangle hair and comb out.
Step four: Blow dry hair upside down, using fingers. Dry completely.
Step five: Split hair in half horizontally and clip top half.
Step six: Take small 1"-2" sections and run the Ping Digital Ceramic Versatile Flat Iron over the section. Repeat if necessary and continue around bottom half until section is done. Clip bottom out of way and repeat same process on top section.

Results:
Before:


After:


To achieve a flipped out front section as seen below take small section place Ping Ceramic Flat Iron near roots, turn iron 90° away from face and slowly pull down.



Add a little hairspray to the front and you're ready to go!

Thoughts:
ABBA Pure Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner is probably one of my most favorite items to use when washing my hair. It smells like mint which I love and deeply hydrates my locks. They retail on fabove.ca for $16.95 & $18.95.

The Argan Oil is something I have wanted to try for a long time. It is derived from Moroccan Argan trees and is an oil treatment that provides shine, smoothness, frizz control, color protection and is alcohol free. I have been using it after every shower for a week now and really enjoy it. It doesn't leave my hair feeling greasy at all and instantly absorbs into my hair. It retails on fabove.ca for $19.95 which is $10 less than I saw it in stores for.

Because I have a lot of hair (as you can see above) and because my hair has a wave/curl to it I find it sometimes difficult to get the finish I want with some flat irons. Normally I use a 2" because I have longer hair but because the 1.5"Ping Ceramic Flat Iron heats all the way up to 220°c/428°f it works really well for my hair. I really like that I have the ability to curl out the front section of my hair with this iron, and although I haven't quite mastered the technique of curling my whole head with a flat iron bit I'm going to work on it because I'm sure its ME and not the iron! It retails on fabove.ca and is on sale for $139.95 (reg. $250.00).


If you are looking for a great site to get all your hair care needs I suggest taking a look at fabove.ca. They have a wide selection of products at a very competitive price and have unbelievable customer service.

A Canadian blogger said she paid about $12 for it at her local Sally's.
