At-Home Hair Straightening Tips From The Experts

At-Home Hair Straightening Tips From The Experts

Has anyone else noticed that the bone straight hair that was popular in the early 2000s is making a major comeback? It’s time to dig out your hair straighteners, or buy a new one if you can, and hop on this sleek and stylish trend.

Let’s keep in mind that straightening our hair has the potential to damage it irreversibly, so precaution should be taken. Here are a few at-home hair straightening tips from expert hair straightening professionals on the Gold Coast.

Use a Heat Protection Product

There are many amazing heat protection products on the market, which, when used before straightening your hair, will reduce damage caused by straightening. Most heat protection products can be applied before and after straightening.

Invest In A Good Straightener

The hair straightener you use could literally make or break your hair. While you needn’t buy top of the range, ceramic plates should be the minimum requirement if you want a silky finish. You should also check the heat settings, as well as read some reviews before buying a straightener.

While the top of the range straighteners are more expensive, they’ll last longer and are more likely to help you achieve the look you’re going for.

Do Not Straighten Your Hair When Wet!

If you straighten your hair when it’s damp or wet, you run the risk of creating a hair bubble, which happens by locking moisture inside your hair strands when straightening it. This can cause irreversible damage to your hair.

Give Your Hair A Break

Avoid using a hair iron on your hair every day. No matter how expensive the brand of hair straightener you invest in, if you use it every day, you will eventually begin to cause damage to your hair.

Consider A Permanent or Semi-Permanent Solution

If you want to achieve the bone-straight look every day, you will save yourself a lot of time and effort if you opt to get your permanently or semi-permanently straightened at a salon instead of straightening it yourself every day. You’ll do less damage to your hair, and a permanent solution will most likely look more natural. There are many permanent and semi-permanent hair straightening treatments available to you.
