Before the pandemic, I did what I could to style my hair without fuss most days. But, too much of a good thing can be bad for you.
For instance, too much heat too often can lead to damage, and eventually your hair won’t revert back to its natural state. Also, improper use of heat can lead to dry hair, brittle hair, breakage, and split ends. I'm not saying that you should stop using heat for good, but you should be careful with your technique and how much you use.
Here are a few tips:
- Use heat tools that have clear settings (not just “on/off”), then use the low or medium settings at most.
- Prepare your hair for heat styling at the cleansing and conditioning stage to make sure it is well hydrated.
- Always use a heat protectant! This will serve as a barrier between your hair tool and your hair to prevent damage.
Remember that saying...."If you can't take the heat..." and pay attention to your strands when they are telling you, "I want to leave the kitchen!"
Love & Light to All!
