How to make ‘heat styling’ work for your hair

Flat iron can make your hair more straighten and smooth ,and curling iron can let you enjoy various hair waves and curls. As for girls, We all like these featured hair tools, but why styling effect is different by use same styling way?maybe you have fingered out what is problem, or still confused. To check following tips that can help you.

Heat styling tip 1: Wait until your hair is dry to use a flat iron or straighteners

Often, “bubble hair” is caused by using a flat or curling iron on hair that is still damp. Since heat styling breaks down the hair’s hydrogen bonds, applying concentrated heat from a curling or straightening iron can be very damaging. Wait until your hair is dry, or blow dry your hair on a low setting to speed the process along before using an iron.

Heat styling tip 2: Adjust your temperature

Adjust the temperature of your heat styling tool according to the thickness and texture of your hair. If you have very thick or curly hair, you may find you need a higher heat setting in order to achieve the look you want. If your hair is thin or fine, you should use a lower heat setting because a higher heat setting can burn hair. It’s best to go with the natural texture of your hair when deciding on how to style it. And start with a lower heat setting and work your way up the temperature scale if you find you need it.

Heat styling tip 3: Look for good tools

You don’t need to spend a fortune buying the very best tools on the market, but you should adhere to a few basic requirements when selecting your heat tools.
1) With flat irons and straighteners, look for products that offer different temperature controls and have high quality plates. Modern technologies have helped straight irons become less damaging. So, if your flat iron is several years old, consider upgrading to a newer model.
2) Curling tongs, like flat irons, should have different temperature controls. There are many types of curling irons available. Pick yours based on the size and shape of the curl you desire. A smaller barrel will result in smaller, tighter curls, and larger will create loose waves. Both looks are really popular right now and I love the look of loose waves.

Heat styling tip 4: Protect before you style

It’s critical to protect your tresses before applying heat. There are many hair care products designed for use with heat styling tools. Pay special attention and look for products that contain silicone, because silicone can act as a protective coating for your hair.

Heat styling tip 5: Air dry if possible

It’s good to go natural once in a while! Just as your face may occasionally need a break from cosmetics, your hair may need a break from heat styling every once in a while, too. Try using a texturizing spray or mousse when you air-dry your hair, as these will add a little shape and volume to your style. If you have long or thick hair and shudder at the idea of leaving the house with wet hair, try washing it the night before. This will give your hair a chance to dry and settle overnight.
