Since it can't be immediately eliminated from our regimens, let's explore healthy uses of heat.

Heat, while it can be avoided, is a component central to the styling lives of many women.

Since it can't be immediately eliminated from our regimens, let's explore healthy uses of heat:

  • Outside of a light heat protectant, don’t apply products prior to applying direct head to your hair.

Definitely not oils or products with alcohol in them.

  • Never set your curling/flat iron to the highest heat.
  • Even with high heat settings, smaller sections are still necessary so that you're thorough in achieving whatever look you’re going after.
  • Ten seconds should be more than enough to hold your hair in place.

Don’t apply direct heat to sopping wet hair.  Let it air dry or take a blow dryer to hit on medium to low heat first.
