3 Easy Steps to Preventing Heat-Styling Damage

Want a flawless mane but can’t give up your favourite hairstyling appliances? Protect yourself! Here’s how you can get your hair to stand up to the heat.

You probably already know how bad heat is for your hair. Heated appliances can lead to split ends, dryness, and breakage. Fortunately, you can protect yourself by taking a few easy steps.

 

3 Easy Steps to Preventing Heat-Styling Damage

 

1. Reach for the right tools.


Using professional styling tools can make all the difference. Grabbing the first dryer you see on sale can wreak havoc on your strands. Go for a modern, high-tech tool.

Top-notch dryers such as the Parlux Power Light 385 Ionic & Ceramic Hairdryer are stylist favourites for a very good reason. You’ll see a major difference after the first use.

Always look for ionic and ceramic heat-styling tools. These definitely aren't gimmicks. The right tools can slash the amount of time your hair needs to spend in the heat, whilst preventing the uneven heating pattern that often causes breakage.


2. Grab a brush.


Not ready to invest in a new hairdryer? A high-quality brush can make your DIY blowouts much easier. Opt for a pro-class brush such as the Moroccanoil Ceramic Barrel Brush. A good ceramic brush makes your hair dry faster and actually leaves it looking silkier.

3. Get a good heat-protectant spray.


Even if you’ve got a great brush and hairdryer, you still need a heat-protectant spray. In fact, you should never get your hair hot without using some type of protective product, whether spray, cream, milk, or gel.

If you have thin or fine hair and live in a sunny climate, UV protection is essential. Scalp sunburns are incredibly common and not only painful but also dangerous.

On top of that, the sun’s rays are just as damaging as any other source of heat. Always look for a heat protecting spray with UV, such as Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer Micro-Fine Finishing Spray.

Regardless of your environment, you need a heat protectant when you blow-dry, straighten, or curl. Ready to start styling? Use your hair goals as a guide to finding the perfect heat-protection product.
