How To Protect Your Hair From Heat Damage
No matter how hard we try, we just can’t seem to stay away from heat styling. From straightening to adding waves and volume, hot irons are amazing for creating gorgeous hairstyles. But just how bad is heat styling for your hair? In short, damaged hair and excessive heat styling definitely go hand-in-hand. If you aren’t protecting your hair from the rough effects of a hot tool, then you could be drying them out or causing your hair colour to fade. Putting down your hot tools for good isn’t always an option and it doesn’t have to be. If you want to keep using your curling irons, straighteners, and blow dryers, you just have to take a few more precautions.
Whether you’re exposing your crown to high or low heat, a protectant is a major factor when it comes to combating breakage, dryness, dullness, and brittleness that all stem from heat styling. Fortunately for you, there are plenty of ways to keep your hair looking great and protect every strand. Here are a few tips everyone who styles their hair should know about.
- Use Heat Protectant
This may seem like a no-brainer, but you should always be using a heat protectant when styling with a hot tool. Think of using a heat protectant like using sunscreen before you head out the door. These products help protect your hair, keep it healthy, and lock-in your hair color.
BBLUNT’s Hot Shot Heat Protection Hair Mist is a must-have for protecting hair from heat and preventing hair damage when heat styling. Formulated with grape seed oil and tourmaline, this innovative hair treatment protects hair up to 230 degrees Celsius. This heat protection mist helps in detangling hair, shields hair from damage and fights frizz as well.
- Set The Right Temperature
After you spritz your hair with a heat protectant, make sure you’re using the right temperature of the tool. Since thinner, finer hair is more susceptible to damage, it’s always better to use a lower temperature when styling your strands. Try to stay under 200 degrees Fahrenheit when curling or straightening your hair. If your hair is thicker, keep your hot tools set between 200 and 300 degrees.
- Use Less
When using a hot tool to style your hair, don’t keep running your tool repeatedly over the same section of hair. While it may seem like you’re reinforcing the style or direction of the hair, you could actually be causing damage. If your hot tool is on the correct temperature setting then once pass should be just enough.
- Condition Your Hair
You always need to replenish your hair’s natural moisture after heat styling. Try using a hydrating mask once a week and asking for a protein treatment every time you head to the salon. These two treatments combined will help to strengthen your strands and keep your hair as healthy as possible. You can opt for BBLUNT Intense Moisture Conditioner which will help you condition your hair. It is enriched with Jojoba oil and keratin which helps provide moisture to your hair.
By now you must have gotten a gist on how protecting your hair from the heat styling tools is important. Make sure whenever you reach out on the heat styling tools prep your hair with a protectant. And what better than the BBLUNT Hot Shot Heat Protection Hair Mist which not only protects hair but also helps in detangling.
You can have endless styles for your hair with absolutely no damage!
