Celebrities passing through the Soul Train Awards Gift Lounge in Atlanta Nov. 9 and 10 were gifted with two products from the new Inks by Gold ‘N Hot Graffiti collection. Academy Award nominee Elise Neal, Tamia, Chrisette Michele, SWV, Jasmine Sullivan, Cee-Lo, Gyptian, and others received the 1875 Watt Ion Salon Dryer and the Professional 1” Ceramic Straightening Iron.

The Professional 1" Ceramic Straightening Iron offers ceramic technology for smooth, shiny hair. Ceramic floating plates eliminate hot spots to provide heat distribution and safely style all hair types. Its slender design provides an easier grip. Professional features include quick 30-second heat up with temperatures up to 400°F. The iron is dual voltage, making it a handy accessory on any trip.

The 1875 Watt Ion Salon Dryer includes an ionic generator to provide superior conditioning and better heat protection through the use of maximum negative ion output and far infrared heat. Gentle infrared heat easily penetrates deep into the hair shaft to gently dry faster, while the ionic generator with over 10 million ions closes the cuticle layer and seals in moisture. Hair is left frizz free, silky and healthy in less time. Two speeds and six heat settings allow for versatile styling of all hair types.

The 2010 Soul Train Awards air on Centric and BET Nov. 28.
