Heat pro­tec­tion

Hair - - The Hair Handbook -

An evening out is planned, and you au­to­mat­i­cally look at the tools of the trade to give your hair the style you de­sire. You take your pick from straight­en­ing, curl­ing or sim­ply blow-dry­ing to make your tresses look gor­geous. Though the styles you cre­ate with heat ap­pli­ances are fab­u­lous, there’s also a good amount of dam­age in­volved. Heat causes the cu­ti­cles to open up, thereby let­ting the hair ab­sorb mois­ture. Us­ing ex­cess heat ham­pers the cu­ti­cle from clos­ing, which causes the hair to ab­sorb more mois­ture and even­tu­ally makes it drier. For­tu­nately, there’s a sim­ple so­lu­tion. Placid says, “Al­ways use a ther­mal spray or hair lo­tion be­fore us­ing any heat ap­pli­ance.”
