Because of its "protection" function, it often makes people relax their vigilance. The heat of the curling iron is set at the highest level, and frequent use has caused irreparable damage to the hair.
Experts say that the use of curling irons to cause hair damage is becoming more and more common, and more and more women appear in clinics waiting to save their severely damaged hair; this situation is common all over the world.
To save damaged hair, the experts also put forward their own suggestions: cut the hair short and keep it for 2 to 3 years, stop using hair curlers, hair dryers and heating products, and avoid sun exposure.
Why curlers hurt hair
Compared with perm with chemicals, plastic curling irons use physical methods. Chemicals change the protein structure of the hair, and it is obvious that it will damage the hair by setting the shape and bending of the liquid. Generally, after a perm, the hair becomes very frizzy, which is the damage to the hair quality. In contrast, although plastic curling irons cannot keep the hair in a curved shape all the time, the physical fixation only temporarily changes the shape of the hair, and essentially does not damage the hair.
In the use of plastic curling irons, because some inferior plastic curling irons have poor plastic, they often hook hair. This kind of pulling can be considered as a kind of damage to the hair. Therefore, when buying a plastic curling iron, you should choose a better quality one. At least it should not be scratchy in the hand. For soft hair, it is not recommended to use plastic curling irons, because the fixation time is longer and the effect is poor.
