It's FIXED!!!

A couple of weeks ago I was getting ready for Church and my CHI flat iron died!!! For any of you who have had this experience know that you cannot survive with out it. First of all CHI's are expensive but so worth it. Secondly, I have had it for three years and it still looks brand new and worked like a champ. Third, there were no signs that it was on its last life; but that morning it
just stopped working. So for the past two weeks I have suffered trying to use my old big one and two other curling irons. With all that my hair was still looking horrible. Isn't that sad, three couldn't do what one can do.

Anyway, Colby new had sad and depressed I was. I had been looking on line for CHI's and actually found some really good deals. But, Colby took the liberty of being Mr fix-it and tried to fix it.

First he took it all apart, and we found the problem, a wire had become disabled.

That was it. So it could be fixed! So we bought a solder and gave it a go.
But after two attempts, my hope was dwindling.

Then Colby's friend Pat was in town this past weekend and new more about soldering than we did. With a little persistence................................. IT WORKED!!!!

Here is the happy recipient!! Cal me crazy, but all I wanted to do was to wash and blow dry my hair so I could use it. Oh, I am so glad to have it back.
