Is the Heat From Hair Irons Bad For Your Hair?

September 21, 2008 by  

Hair straightening irons are extremely popular right now since straight hair is in such high demand by those who were born with naturally curly hair. Many question if the high heat which hair irons expose your hair to is good for the overall health of your hair. If used right these irons will not damage your hair, but if they are not used properly then damage can occur. If the hair iron has exposed metal on the plates or if the user does not use the proper temperature setting with the variable temperature setting than the potential is there to expose hair to unnecessary heat which can cause damage and dry it out.
