If you want to minimize the damage of the curling iron to your hair, it is best to choose a matte material with ceramic treatment on the surface, which will not only make it easier to comb, but also will not damage your hair. Although the shiny material conducts heat quickly, it is easy to damage and scorch the hair. In addition, choose the steam hair styling mode of the electric roller, which makes the style faster and longer lasting, and its steam function can reduce heat damage.
Use anti-heat curling products
Many people use leave-in conditioners or conditioners as anti-heat products. In fact, these products are not particularly effective in anti-heat, and they are not enough to protect their hair. The heat-resistant products specifically for thermal operation can absorb heat and solidify, forming a protective film on the surface of the hair to resist the damage of hair dryers and curling irons. However, it must be used when the hair is completely blown dry in order to exert the heat resistance effect of the product.
Control the temperature of the curling iron
When curly hair, you must first start with the basic defense from the temperature. The temperature setting of the curling irons on the market is generally between 80-200 degrees. There are also some curling irons that can raise the temperature independently, and the temperature can be as high as 200 degrees. Generally speaking, the temperature of the curling iron should be controlled below 120 degrees as far as possible, so that it will not particularly damage the hair. If the hair is slightly thicker, you can heat it to about 150 degrees. When using the curling iron, it is best to preheat for 20 seconds, try to shape it once, and reduce the curling iron repeatedly on the same piece of hair. Reduce the damage of curling iron to hair.
Use the curling iron one hour after the head
Another thing to note is that it is best to perform ironing one hour after washing your hair. After shampooing, the hair scales are open and the hair contains a lot of water. If you rush to dry and style with a curling iron at this time, the water will evaporate and the hair scales will also be damaged. One hour after shampooing, the hair dries out naturally and the hair scales are closed. At this time, the hair will be less damaged by ironing.
Do not use wet hair care products on your hair
Some girls are accustomed to using some hair care essence or conditioner on semi-dry hair, and then perm treatment, thinking that the hair is wrapped in oil, which will definitely reduce the heat damage caused by the curling iron. In fact, the oil covering the hair makes the moisture less likely to evaporate, prolongs the time of hot air contact, and heat damage is even greater.
