I was supposed to do a tutorial for the MD meet..but we ran out of time. So here it is for all to behold. This idea really works.
Step 1... Frizzy haired pony

Step 2... Boil water

Step 3... Dip hair in boiling water

Step 4...Lay pony on a flat surface and comb out straight. I usually try to put a towel underneath of it to absorb the water. Do step 3 and 4 several times
*if you want truly straight hair you are now done. Just stand pony up and comb hair how you want it to stay forever.

Step 5... Seperate a small section of hair and curl around a cut off straw. Use a bobbypin to keep in place (hint..put the crinkled side of the bobbypin inside the straw to avoid a crimped look)

Step 6...Put curlers in all the hair. Go ahead and dip in boiling water every now and again. You want hair to remain hot and steaming while doing this.

Step 7...Leave to dry overnight. Then carefully remove bobbypins and slide out straw from the top.

Step 8...Enjoy your curly haired pony! The heat of the water changes the plastic and the hair will remain curly! No products needed!

Curls I have made in ponies has lasted for years! Frizz be gone!

Oh and i wanted to mention that while straws work...Firemuse sells some really nice wooden curling sticks that she uses with hair clips and they would last forever and be really nice to own. I have always used straws but her method got different sized curls. And the funny part is...she used the same pony to show how the curl works!

a real example


and a tutorial pic.

Agreed! The pics are hilarious!

I usually just use conditioner to re-curl, but it doesn't take care of all frizz. I'll have to try the new method.

Oh, and I love the use of Sugarberry, she does tend to have wild hair.

lol neat pics! But if you saw some of the frizz I have in my herd here...I think they'd be even more freaked out, cause I'm sure it'd take a loooong time. I really just have 3 ponies that I've been putting off fixing up. Never knew about the boiling water though, I'll have to try that.

Thanks for the tutorial Whippet, and the animation is great!

But I think the real proof of your method is that you managed to make Joelle look appealing :D

Is this only for ponies that had orginal curly hair? What if you want it to be straight?
