Shield Smokin’ Hot Hair
When styling your hair, there are many styling products that you can use to achieve a certain look. Whether you’re creating a glamorous updo or wearing your hair down in diva-like curls, many trendy hairstyles these days involve the use of hot tools, like blow dryers, hot rollers, curling wands and flat irons. Without the proper protection, your styling tools can extremely damage your hair.
Most people don’t even realize how hot their styling tools get. Some styling tools can get as hot as 450 degrees, which is like the heat that an oven produces. You wouldn’t just reach into a hot oven to pull a cookie tray out, would you? Of course not! You’d put on your oven mitts to avoid burning your hands. Well same logic applies to your hair: a good heat protectant is like oven mitts for your hair.
Without a good thermal protector, your styling tools will destroy the moisture and proteins in your hair, drying out your locks and making them extra prone to breakage. You may even notice that your tresses lack luster and feel like straw. Take control and protect your beautiful locks with a good heat protectant, like Aveda’s BrilliantTM Damage ControlTM. Not only does this product protect against thermal damage, but it also protects against UV damage and reduces breakage from combing.
Aside from using a good heat protectant, the next best thing you can do to protect your hair is to use less heat when styling hair. Try going au naturel for a couple days of the week. By using a good heat protectant and styling less with heat, you’ll surely notice a difference in how healthy and soft your hair looks and feels.
