how to have it all: styled hair that's cared for
When it comes to hair styling, there are millions of different products, tools, and tips out there. Here are a few simple ways to ensure that you have healthy hair, even if you’re a styling addict like us!
Keep it quick, cool, and protected
It’s no secret that too much heat can damage your hair, causing it to become fragile and even break. This is why you should get yourself hair styling tools that have different temperature settings and use the lowest possible setting.
Before you start, protect your hair from the heat by applying a heat-protectant treatment, which coats your hair to help lock in moisture and shield from heat damage.
Blow-dry your hair as little as possible, opting for an air dry.
Only start styling with curlers or straighteners when your hair is completely dry, and add a blast of cold air at the end because this may help to close your hair cuticles and add shine.
Keep each swipe of your flatiron to a quick, fluid motion, not stopping too long on any one section of hair. Even if the particular piece or curl you were looking for doesn’t appear, don’t worry. Come back to it once the strand has cooled and you won’t risk hair damage.
Indulge in some glossy boosters
Finally, by adding serum or a few drops of shine-inducing oil, you can re-nourish dry tips so your hair stays healthy and glossy looking. These products can be added at any time of the process, and can work well with gel, mousse, etc. As long as you thoroughly rinse out your products later, your hair will increase in its healthy and glossy appearance each time you style following these tips.
