I do wish people in authority would use grammar properly. The description of this product as a "ceramic hair straightening iron", implies that there are folks out there with ceramic hair! It needs a hyphen to make clear the meaning, as: "Ceramic hair-straightening iron".

My hair, Mike, has gone white, anticipating the winter, and is rapidly becoming an endangered species. The idea that I could somehow have been more attractive to the opposite sex by dragging two electrified lumps of red-hot brick through what remains of it never occured to me before. What a fool I've been!

"You are Old, Mr. Belson.", the Young Man said,
"Yet have grown most uncommonly Bald!
Your hairs gone all Frizzy, & split at the ends,
Oh, and right on the Top is a Scald!"
"In my Youth," I replied, "I kept my hair supple,
using 'Red-Hot-Tile-Tongs',
($10 a pair!),
-Allow me to sell you a couple!"

(with abject apologies to Lewis Carrol).

* corrected the grammar!!
