Heat is easily the most common method of styling hair; from blow drying to flat ironing, curling to crimping- our hair sees it all. If you’ve ever wondered the best ways to protect your hair from the damage that these beautiful styles cause, this blog is for you!
  • Invest in quality hot tools! They are worth the money every time, and last much longer than the competitors. Having professional hot tools will help prevent your iron from overheating and causing unnecessary damage.
  • Heat protection is everything! Use this in your hair consistently before styling and you will notice a huge difference- salon grade heat protection will cover up to 450° and come in a wide variety of lotions or wet and dry sprays. They are an absolute lifesaver for your hair!
  • Avoid the 450° setting! Even with a great heat protectant, don't cook your hair at the same temperature you cook a pizza! For curls trying keeping your iron at 390° and for straightening try 365°.
  • Let your style set! When you finish heat styling your hair, leave it be for 10 minutes before brushing and adding your final products. Allowing your hair to cool down in place will make your style hold for days to come.
  • Try to avoid using heat daily! Set a hair wash schedule that works for you and try different heatless options of styling on days that you can; for example if you curled your hair on day 1, rock a half pony on day 2, and messy bun or braid on day 3. We tend to over iron the pieces of hair around our face which causes breakage. Making an effort to get more days out of your style will result in much happier hair! 

    Consistency is key when seeing results in heat styling, but I promise, the little extra steps make a world of difference. Put that heat protectant on, style those beautiful locks, and go through the weak hair whipping like the goddess you are (or you know, put your hair in a messy bun because quarantine, totally your call!). 
Counting the days until I can see all your beautiful faces- and of course- play with your hair.
