Is There Any Way To Prevent Heat Damage?
Stronger, Longer Hair Challenge
Heat can be very damaging to your hair. With our use of blow dryers, flat irons, straightening combs and hood dryers- sometimes we overdo it with the heat. I try to implement heatless options for my hair even though I do love to straighten my hair from time to time. Heatless is the way to go to prevent damage to your hair.
Whether you are relaxed, natural, or wear extensions, heat can definitely take a toll on your hair.
When you are relaxed, you may not necessarily see the damage, but you can definitely feel it. Your hair will feel very dry and brittle. It probably will start breaking off as well. This will definitely want to make you stay away from heat!!
When you are natural, heat damage can make your curls limp. Your curls will loosen. I personally have had my hair burned by a couple of stylists. This has left me with several small sections that are completely straight and they felt like straw. My hair would literally be big and curly and then there would be those straight hair patches past my shoulders. This made me go heatless for over an entire year!
If you wear extensions, you still have the risk of damaging the hair. Whether the hair is virgin (unprocessed) or processed, heat can easily damage the hair. I have seen several people who wear curly weaves, and they have damaged the curls because they act as if it is not real hair! Sometimes women tend to put even more heat because it’s not their hair. True! But, why damage the hair and waste your investment.
Going heatless is a great way to prevent potential damage! Try out some heatless methods to styling hair. You would be surprised with the things you can do to achieve great new styles…plus you will skip out on the potential damage. Remember, if you use heat- use it in moderation and not set at the maximum.
Also use a heat protector like the Heat Protection Polisher from Optimum Care Salon Collection. It keeps your style’s smoothness during all-day humidity and moisture.
