I won’t sugarcoat this for you. There are just two things you need to keep in mind when you use you use heat styling tools like the curling wand or straightening iron on your hair.

  • Avoid heat styling: While it is best that you stopped using heat styling tools altogether, I know it can be impossible for a lot of you out there. So, a good compromise is to limit your heat styling to once or twice a week. After all, applying heat to your hair too often can cause split ends and damage to your hair.
  • Apply heat protectant: Always, always, always apply a heat protectant to your hair before straightening or curling it. This acts as a barrier between your hair and the heat, thus protecting your tresses from untold damage.
