3 Tips For Avoiding Heat Damage To Your Hair

If you style your hair, you more than likely use heat-based products on a regular basis. You may use a curling iron to add some soft curls to your hair, a straighten to make things look a little sleeker, or a blow dryer, so you don't have to run out of the house with a wet head of hair. It is natural to use heat-based products to style your hair with. 

Heat-based styling tools can provide you with more flexibility concerning hairstyles. Heat-based styling tools can also damage your hair if you don't know how to take proper care of your hair. Here are three tips that will help you avoid damaging your hair with heat-based styling tools.  

Allow Your Hair to Dry Naturally 

Try to skip blow-drying your hair every day. You don't want to use heat to dry your hair and then heat to style your hair if you can avoid it. Wash your hair the night before, and allow it to air dry during the evening, then style it in the morning. If you love a morning shower, invest in a shower cap to keep your hair dry. That way, you can enjoy a morning shower without having to deal with drying your hair.  

Avoid Using Heat Products on Wet Hair 

Next, avoid using heating tools on wet hair. There are a variety of heating tools that advertise that you can use them on wet hair without damaging your hair. This is not entirely true. You can use these products without causing extreme damage to your hair. The truth is that, although these tools may be able to be used on your hair when it is wet, you really don't want to use them on your hair when it wet.  

Using any heating tool on your hair when it is still wet can create irregular bubbles in your hair, making your hair more prone to breaking. If you want to avoid breaking and damaging your hair, don't use your heated styling tools on wet hair.  

Adjust the Heat You Use on Your Hair 

You don't have to use the highest heat setting on your hair all the time. Consider the texture of your hair when choosing which heat setting to use. You can use lower heat if you have thinner hair. Even if you have thick hair, you don't have to use the highest heat setting possible. Instead, work up and figure out how much heat is necessary to get your hair done. Try to find the lowest heat setting that will work for your hair so you can style your hair without damaging it.  

Take good care of your hair. Allow your hair to dry before using heat styling tools on your hair. Adjust the amount of heat you use on your hair, don't always max things out. Remember, it is okay to take a break for a day from styling your hair to help keep it healthy.

About Me

Fashion Forward: Taking Your Fashion Sense Into Your Own Hands Even as a child, I was always fascinated by clothing and design. My outfits always matched, and I begged my parents to buy me the latest season's fashions as soon as they hit the store. I took some art classes to learn how to do my own design. I learned how to sew, and started making my own clothes to experiment with different fashion ideas. I decided to take all of the things that I've learned about beauty and fashion and create this blog. My hope is to inspire creativity and personal expression in others just like I've had for most of my life.
