Giveaway: Ceramic ion flat iron.

Got any hair freaks on your holiday list? This week’s giveaway, sponsored by Folica.com, can help you out.

The Solia 1ΒΌ” tourmaline ceramic ion flat iron uses far-infrared heat and extra negative ions to reduce heat damage. You can get it in black, pink, red or purple. It comes with a heat-proof pouch.

As you might guess from its name, Folica.com is “all about the hair.” If you don’t win the flat iron, go over and look for other under-the-tree options. At this time of year free shipping and/or free gifts are being offered right and left.

And if you don’t have any hair freaks on your list? Use the prize yourself, donate it to some kind of gift program (some of the names on the Angel Tree belong to teenagers) or put it on Craigslist.

To enter:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 9 p.m. PST Monday, Dec. 12.
