How I LOVE my flat iron Flirty Pony Flirty Pony If you don't have one I suggest you find one, because those things work wonders! Energetic

Here's my Spanish Galaxy (before that is Wink ), I really wanted one and settled for one that had some issues. As you can see, her mane and tail are essentially a frizzy mess, and no matter how much conditioner I used, it didn't seem to do much:

Does anyone else have some before and after shots of a frizzy mess turned gorgeous again? I'd love to see what other people have done Energetic

sadly I do not... but I have done this before, my most successful ponies have been flutters, they looked SO much better after a little flat iron love.

The difference is amazing!
I have a little question. Did you use the flat iron directly on the pony hair or did you place something between it? and did you put conditioner in the hair before putting the iron on it?

You did an amazing job!

And you asked for examples of other rescued ponies so here was my most difficult project (her hair was so dry and brittle, I was afraid I might ruin it but I just couldn't enjoy her the way she was):

@Skelletonimp- I don't put anything between the hair and the ceramic plates of the the flat iron, but I do make sure the hair is ALWAYS damp when I run it through the iron and never let the iron sit on the hair for very long at all. Smile Every now and then I'll gently comb out the hair and use a little conditioner too (I bought some cheap stuff at a dollar store).

@Sillymoosy- That Heart Throb looks amazing! YAY! She looks much better with her hair done Flirty Pony

I have done this with a few of my ponies, but unfortunately I have no before-after pictures.

But good jobs have you done

i'm about halfway through doing this to every pony i have for sale! Happy the ones i had left from my original lot weren't getting any attention the way they were, and i happened to come across another lot that were in a sorry state, so i'm prettying them all up ready to go to new homes hopefully Flirty Pony

here's an example of my Sundance before and after Smile
