One of the most common hair care habits people have is grabbing their heat tools to help style their hair. This could be because they are always in a hurry and don’t have much time to spend on their hair, or it could also be because it’s a quicker and easier way to style it. Regardless of the specific circumstances, heat styling can create heat damage to the hair if you don’t at least use a protective hair serum. There are some quality hair care tips to prevent heat damage, which we’ve explained to you here.
Use A Heat Protectant
If you know you’ll be using heat tools on a particular day, prepare your hair for it by using a protective hair serum designed to protect it from the heat. Not only will this product protect the hair from getting damaged, but it will also tame frizziness, condition the hair and make it shiny all with one application. It’s hard to completely eliminate heat styling tools if you’ve become used to them, so at least incorporate this product going forward to help out.
Let Your Hair Air Dry As Much As Possible
Plan ahead and allow your hair some time to air dry as much as possible after washing with your best sulfate free shampoo. Air drying is important to protect your strands, since the alternative of rubbing it with a towel can cause more harm than good. Plus, the longer you let the hair air dry, the less amount of time you’ll need to use the heat tools. This reduced exposure will benefit your hair in more ways than one.
Limit Heat Tool Use And Lower Temperature Settings
Blow dryers, straightening irons and curling irons are life savers, but should be used only when absolutely needed. Whatever your current frequency of using these tools is now, skip a day or two the next time and try a new hairstyle. But even if you must use them, consider lowering the temperature setting as much as you can and see if it still gets the job done. These minor adjustments to your quality hair care routine will go a long way in preventing heat damage and helping your hair look healthy at all times.
