4 things every heat styling addict should do

by

When you’re as addicted to heat styling as you are your morning cuppa, protecting your hair is paramount to keeping your locks looking their best. Over time, regular heat styling with volcanic-like temperatures without any TLC causes the cuticle to erode. Yes really! So if you’re not a fan of dry hair with split ends galore, then keep reading, as we reveal how to rock healthy hair while continuing your love affinity with heat tools. Guess you really can have your cake and eat it too…

HYDRATE

The key is moisture – and lots of it. When you’re using heat tools almost every day, your hair will naturally lose hydration. The answer? Start your styling prep in the shower with a shampoo and conditioner that are infused with ingredients which will quench your locks, without weighing them down.

CREATE A SHIELD

If you only do one thing before heat styling, make sure it’s this: apply a heat protectant. Every. Time. Without it, your hair is more prone to snapping and breaking. On damp hair, reach for a water-soluble spray or mist, and on second-day hair your best bet is a dry-protecting spray. So you see, healthy-looking hair only requires five seconds a day to achieve. Sorry folks, there’s no room for discussion on this one.

PUT ON A MASK

If you’re going to continue your love affair with your straightener or curling wand, you need to put in some ‘me time’ with your locks at least once a week. Simply swap a conditioning mask with your conditioner, let it soak, then rinse. If you’re a gym junkie, apply the mask from your mid-lengths down, then secure in a bun and rinse post-workout.

GET SLICKED

It’s a slick move, but applying an oil treatment before bed to the ends of your hair helps smooth, hydrate and plump the ends, which are typically drier (read: frayed). When you think about it, your ends are likely to be well over a year old, and after facing countless heat styling sessions, the cuticle layer becomes noticeably thinner than the rest of your hair. So plump them up with some repair oil, then wrap your hair into a small towel to avoid staining your pillow case. Good morning, gorgeous!

     My name is MICHEAL RACHEL. When I read a testimony online on how DR DAVID the great and most powerful spell caster helped to bring back Divorce husband or wife EX LOVER. I was wondering how this can be true, Because many have failed me in the past without any result from them. I just let the post pass by and move on to the forum. To my notice under again, Some person posted and said tested and trusted spell caster. After reading through the mail it was this same man DR DAVID she was talking about. So I have no other option than to really check up how he works. I was totally devastated when my beloved husband left me. It was like my entire world vanishing into sorrow and pain. I know it sounds weird but out of all the spell casters I contacted, he was the only one to give me that impression of being so true and trustful. More than his words, He brought my husband back and he made all my wishes come true. He is now loyal, pays attention to me, he offers me flowers every Sunday, and we often go out at the cinema and the restaurant. My husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. I will be forever thankful for turning my life from hell to heaven! I believe those who need help should get to him for help. May God continue to use you to save broken relationships.
