A lot of us will choose to heat style at home. There are some common flat iron mistakes we can avoid to minimize the damage.

To help you upgrade your game, we asked them exactly what we're doing wrong...

Choose the wrong hair iron

Some flat irons are special for salon use, and some are for home use which is easier to operate by oneself. So choose the flat iron which fits for you. The strong, solid flat irons for heavy salon work may not works well for you.

Cranking Up the Heat

Normally, 410 F works for every hair type. Not everyone need 450F. High temperature will get your hair burned and damaged. Start from the lower temperature. Choose the right temperature according to your hair type.

Hair type
 Temperature setting
Fragile, fine or chemically processed hair
Normal, easy-to-straighten hair
Resistant, thick, wavy hair

Forgetting Thermal Protection

If you heat to style a lot, a thermal protectors will help protect the hair.
