Our hair consists of hydrogen bonds and keratin proteins. If you use heat styling tools like flat irons, curling irons, blow dryers, and tongs, they strip off the proteins and natural oils by breaking its hydrogen bonds, and that is the only way to get the look that you want.
The tools change your hair texture to achieve either curliness, sleekness, or straightness.
We’re not saying you should just ditch the heat styling tools, no. They help you give you your desired look and the look that can’t be achieved any other way. But there is always a way to protect your hair when you use heat styling machines and tools.
TIP NO. 1
It is one hundred percent crucial for you to take care of the health of your hair for long-lasting and better-looking results as we are aware that the heat breaks the hair’s hydrogen bond. Wait for your hair to dry first naturally, but if you are in a rush, then use a blow dryer, but make sure it is on low before you use an iron. Or else you can cause irreversible damage.
TIP NO. 2
Adjust the temperature of the heating tool according to the texture and thickness of your hair. If you have curly or thick hair, you may want to switch to a higher heat setting to achieve your desired look. And if you have fine or thin hair, use a lower heat setting since the higher can burn your hair. It is always best to stick with the natural texture of the hair when deciding how to style it.
TIP NO. 3
You can find hair products abundantly that help protects your hair. Apply them before styling your hair or using any heat styling machine or tool. Be sure that whatever hair product you use is specifically formulated. If you use standard products, they can cause some serious damages, and you will cook the styling products with your hair.
Think of heat styling as a look for any special occasion. The best way to stop your hair from damage is prevention. But if you are a styling addict, then learn to give your hair some extra care by using strengthening conditioners and shampoos. If you think your hair is already damaged, remember that it is never too late to practice healthy hair habits.
