Remington Active Ion, Tourmaline & Ceramic Flat Iron - My 1st Flat Iron Experience

Monday, August 11, 2008

I am a 23 yrs old flat iron virgin! Well not anymore...hahaha...what I meant to say is that I've never owned a flat iron nor have I ever flat ironed my hair myself! I was at ULTA on the weekend and I was looking around to purchase some perfume. Well that didn't happen because I saw a really good deal on this Remington TSTUDIO Flat Iron. I've always wanted a flat iron but I really didn't have an interest in going out and shopping for one. This flat iron was on sale for $27.99, the orginal price was $39.99. To me, thats an excellent price! The sales lady that helped me out was sooo nice. She said she owns the same flat iron and she lovesss it. By the way she is Black and about Bra Strap Length with bone-straight relaxed hair. I was very happy to hear that. I was sold. Check out some info on my new flat iron (im so happy)!
