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.
