Haiirrrr styling!!! Curling irons, hair straighteners, blow dryers, etc, cause damage to the hair. You know that right? Any heat used on the hair is not good. We use them anyways but too much use of these tools can destroy your hair.
I understand that sometimes we have to go to parties/events and you want to look the best. You want your hair to have those perfect curls or as poker straight as Lady Gagas'. We can't completely stop the damage when using heat but we can reduce the damage that will be caused. Using a heat protectant on the hair will help do so.
Paul Mitchell is a well known brand and they have amazing products such as the 'Seal and Shine'. This product seals the hair shaft and gives it a protective layer. It doesn't let the heat penetrate through. It conditions and moisturizes the hair. The product adds shine to your hair after you've used heat. Use this spray more on the ends than on the roots. Best results are when you use this on slightly damp hair but you can also use it on dry hair. This spray doesn't have any smell to it. A little is enough, too much of this spray can weigh the hair down and make it look greasy.
There are many brands which sell such products. A very popular one is the Tresemme heat protectant. They all work the same way. But make sure you use a heat protectant before you heat style your hair. You don't want your hair to get burnt and fall off, do you?
