January 25, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Women all over the country have heard that straightening their hair can be the worst thing for it. Breakage in the ends and frizz from root to tip could be a couple of the negative effects of straightening your hair daily. Some see these as reasons to quit straightening their hair and feel that if they do straighten, their hair will break easily and become incredibly damaged. Just because some of these things can happen to your hair, it doesn’t mean that you should never straighten it. There are few easy solutions to breakage in the hair follicle.

One way to at least prevent damage is to use your heat protectant spray and not use the heat tool as much. This may be one of the easiest ways to solve the problem but it may not completely resolve the issue. This may be the best option for those women who are attached to their long locks of beauty. It’s true that some women refuse to cut their hair because of its length. They become so attached to having their hair hang so long that they would never even consider cutting the ends off. Using plenty of thermal care and watching the heat exposure is the best way for these kind of women to lessen the harsh effects of straightening.

For those who may not be so attached to their hair, they may consider bringing out the shears. It’s a good way to update your look as well as remove any bad ends that are causing your hair to look dead and dull. It is amazing to see how a woman with long hair can get a shorter look and can also make herself look so sophisticated. Shorter bobs tend to look more professional and put together than hair that hangs down with scary ends. That is why chopping it all off may be a great idea if your hair is becoming a pain to straighten in the mornings.

You don’t necessarily need to go from butt-length hair to chin-length hair. As long as you give your ends a fresh look so you can start clean with the straightening process. If your hair is shorter, there won’t be as many tangles because there won’t be as much hair to get jumbled together into knots. This makes you even save a little time with styling each day! As long as you’re not completely obsessed with having long hair, cutting it to a shorter style would be a great idea to avoid tangles and damage from heat.

You may have never thought that you would see the words “hair straightener” and “hair scissors” in the same sentence. However, it’s true: you can eliminate the extreme damage of a hair straightener by using hair scissors. Although you maybe shouldn’t trust yourself to cut the hair off without the help of a hairstylist. But it is a good idea to give your ends a fresh look while repairing damage at the same time!

It’s morning and also that time for you to get yourself dressed up for the day. You begin with straightening your hair and prepare the locks while you warm up your straightener. As you’re warming it up, you think about all the things that could cause your hair to go bad when straightening. How do you know if something is necessarily bad or good for your hair, though? You will now solve all your problems with one little guide.

Along with things to remember, there are also a few things you must avoid when you straighten your hair. Let’s begin with the texture of your hair. What should it look like before and after you begin styling with your hair straightener? Before you start your hair may look wavy or curly or maybe it just has some frizz that needs smoothed over quickly. However, it should never look or feel wet when you style your hair. Always make sure your hair is completely dry or your chances of damaging the ends will possibly double.

Avoiding extreme temperatures is also a good idea when styling. Although your hair may be extremely curly and frizzy, you could damage it by applying too much heat to the ends. Some straighteners allow up to 400 degrees of heat that comes into contact with your hair when you straighten it. This may be able to help you straighten your stubborn curls and waves a little easier, but beware! If you don’t use plenty of precaution such as heat protectant spray, you are more likely to get damaged hair with split ends.

The three main areas to observe is texture, heat exposure, and last but not least time. Watch the amount of time you spend straightening each day. This doesn’t just mean how much time you spend overall on your head of hair, it also means you should pay attention to how many times you run over a single section of hair. This almost goes along with the idea of heat exposure because you may spend too much time straightening one section and this could bring too much heat to that area and cause split ends.

This guide can provide help to you the next time you begin to straighten your hair. Whenever you think you’re damaging your hair too much, you could be so take precautions. Take a look through these “don’ts” and you’ll tie everything together in order to provide your hair with silk and shine for life.

No matter what your hair type or even your desired style the one thing every woman has in common and dreads the same is split ends in their hair. Split ends occur when the protective cuticle around the hair ends is damaged or removed. When women have split ends in their hair it tends to look frizzy as well as unhealthy and not clean.

There is some confusion on what exactly causes split ends and by not understanding how you get them you cannot effectively avoid them in your hair. Some of the causes are prolonged heat exposure from poor quality hair irons, extreme temperatures, chemicals, and poor haircuts with dull hair cutting tools.

Of course long ago women would burn the split ends to remove them from their hair. Though this works, this is not the recommended way to get rid of split ends from your hair. There is no hair products that will magically make split ends go away so cutting them off is your best bet to get them and encourage new healthy growth in your hair. This should be done with sharp professional hair cutting scissors so that you get the smoothest cleanest cut to begin again with fresh healthy hair.
