Broken Flat Iron.
Has this ever happened to you?
Don’t be too quick to throw away your flat iron if the plates come loose. I just about cried when this happened to mine. Granted I’ve had my flat iron for forever – and so I should with a hefty $200 price tag. I have very coarse hair and other flat irons never did the trick like this one does. So I was determined to fix it.
I tried just about every strong hold glue I could think of, I even used glue that my husband uses on the gasket for our wood stove thinking that high heat glue would be sure to work like a charm – but it failed.
I came across this product above, JB-WELD, my saving grace!
I found it in the automotive section of Wal-Mart.
Just like it say’s on the package
“Don’t scrap it, JB-Weld it”
Here is what you do.
Grab a piece of tin foil and squirt out an amount out of the red tube like above.
Then squirt out an amount out of the black tube like above.
Use a stick of some sort, I used the handle of a plastic spoon, and mix together until you have a grey mixture like above.
Spread generously on the plate, trying to avoid the plates surface that touches your hair.
Clamp together really tight, wipe away any excess that seeps through thoroughly. Once dry there’s no getting it off.
I left mine clamped together for more than 24 hours.
I did a little happy dance the first time I used it, worked like a charm.
I waited a few weeks before posting this because I wanted to make sure that it really worked and that it didn’t fall apart in a couple of days.
I am very happy to report that it’s been one month and my flat iron is still perfectly intact!
