There is nothing more elegant than straight hair. As someone who has always had curly, frizzy hair, I know how difficult it can be to get it to look straight. You have probably fought (and lost) many times against your curls while trying to straighten them.
Here are the five biggest mistakes you should avoid:
1. Straightening Your Hair Every Day
If you have straightened your hair, you know how damaging it can be. The heat from the straightening iron can cause your hair to become dry, brittle, and frizzy. It can also lead to split ends and breakage. It is important to give your hair time to recover from heat damage. Try to limit straightening your hair to two or three times a week. This will help your hair stay healthy and strong.
If you are a straightener addict, it's time to give your hair a break. In between straightening sessions, use a deep conditioner or mask to help replenish your hair's moisture. You should also avoid using heat styling tools on wet hair, as this can further damage your strands.
2. Not Using a Heat Protectant
One of the worst things you can do to your hair is to use a lot of heat without any protection. This can lead to heat damage, which can be very difficult to recover. Heat damage can cause your hair to become dry, brittle, and even break off. That's why it's so important to use a heat protectant every time you use heat on your hair. Heat protectants help to create a barrier between your hair and the heat, which can help to prevent damage.
There are a few different heat protectants, so you can choose the one that's right for you. Some heat protectants are designed for use with specific types of hair, so be sure to read the labels before you buy.
3. Straightening Your Hair When It Is Wet
If you have straight hair, you may be tempted to straighten it when wet to speed up the drying process. However, this is a bad idea as your hair is more susceptible to heat damage when wet. Instead, you should allow your hair to air dry or blow dry on a low heat setting. If you must straighten your hair when wet, use a heat protectant spray and keep the straightener on a low heat setting.
4. Straightening Over-Processed Hair
If your hair is over-processed, it is more likely to be damaged by heat. Over-processed hair is often dry, brittle, and frizzy. If your hair is over-processed, you should avoid using heat styling tools as much as possible. If you must use heat on over-processed hair, use a heat protectant spray and keep the straightener on a low heat setting.
5. Putting the Heat Settings Too High
If you put too high heat settings on your hair straightener, you will likely damage your hair. You should keep your hair straightener on the lowest heat setting if you have fine hair. If you have thick hair, you can use a higher heat setting, but you should still be careful not to damage your hair.
If you use a hair straightener, you must be careful to avoid damaging your hair. The best way to avoid damaging your hair is to use a heat protectant spray and to keep the straightener on a low heat setting. You should also avoid straightening your hair when it is wet and over-processed. If you put too high heat settings on your hair straightener, you will likely damage your hair.
