All hair tools are friends as long as we use them well, otherwise they become a real danger to the hair.
Do you think you know how to use the straightener well?
Let's see together the mistakes that you absolutely must avoid to ensure that this tool is a precious ally for your styling
and not a way to ruin your hair.
#1 WATCH OUT FOR THE TEMPERATURE!
In fact, it is not the plate that hurts, but the too high temperature. Once the 200 degrees are exceeded, the hair undergoes a thermal shock and here comes split ends, the color changes and the hair fiber is compromised.
The ideal temperature is 185 degrees.
#2 WORK ON DRY HAIR!
Never use the straightener on wet or damp hair, because in this case contact with heat burns the hair and ruins its structure, making it dry, brittle and difficult to comb.
So before using the straightener, dry your hair perfectly!
#3 FIRST THE BRUSH (FLAT)!
The knots prevent the straightener from slipping on the hair, so before using it, comb it well, but without over-ironing the lengths with a round brush, because in that way the waves you will try to make with the straightener
they will last less.
#4 THERMAL PROTECTOR!
Never forget to use a thermo protectant, that is the special product that protects the hair from the heat of the plates, creating a barrier, hydrating and at the same time giving definition to the styling.
#5 TIME AND PATIENCE!
To make a fold that lasts, you need to have a little patience and leave the strands time to cool down.
Touching or combing the hair immediately after passing the straightener will cause the newly created style to be lost.
In order for the fold to fix, it is therefore necessary to wait a bit for the hair to cool down.
#6 THE RIGHT CHOICE!
Choosing the right straightener is essential, both for the health of the hair and for the result of the style.
Don't choose one that's too cheap, it could damage your hair by using excessively high temperatures.
Even the size of the plate must be chosen based on the length and type of hair.
