Tips for Using Your Hair Styling Tools Without Damaging Your Hair

We’ve shown you which tools you need. Now go through the below hair care tips to make sure your hair is stylish but also keeps healthy and strong.

1 – Wait until your Hair is Dry to use a Flat Iron

Heat styling breaks down the hair’s hydrogen bonds therefore wait until your hair is dry before using an iron. Otherwise, you may cause irreversible damage to your strands.

2 – Adjust the Temperature According to Your Hair

Adjust the temperature of your heat tool according to the thickness and texture of your hair. Thick or curly hair will require a higher heat setting and vice versa for finer hair.

When styling your hair, start with a lower heat setting and work your way up to a higher temperature setting if you find you need it.

3 – Look for Good Tools

Well we’ve shown you which are the best tools, however if you are looking for alternatives keep these tips in mind;

  • For flat irons and straighteners, look for different temperature control feature and make sure they have high quality plates. The more modern irons are now using superior technology which are far less damaging on the hair, so if you’re still using an older model maybe you deserve an upgrade.
  • Curling tongs should also offer different temperature controls. When choosing a curling iron keep in mind the size and shape of the curls you want. Smaller barrel tongs will obviously give you smaller and tighter curls, while the larger barrels will create loose waves.
  • With blow dryers, nozzles will help distribute heat more evenly. If you have curly hair, consider investing also in a diffuser head for your blow dryer to spread the heat. Make sure your hair dryer of choice gives out a powerful air flow because this will make all the difference.

4 – Protect before you Style

Apply the necessary product before heat styling your hair.

There are many hair care products designed for use with heat styling tools. Be sure to choose those that contain silicone, because this acts as a protective coating for your hair.

5 – Air Dry every now and again.

Go natural every once in a while to give your hair a break. Use a texturizing mousse or spray when air-drying your hair so as to add a little shape and volume to your style.

That’s it. Happy Hair Styling.
