If you straighten your hair frequently, you will cause significant damage, as the heat can cause split ends and even break the hair. However, there are other ways than using a straightening iron to get beautiful straight hair. In the following article, we have put together some tips for you.
1. straightening shampoo
If you straighten your hair frequently, it is best to do this without heat. Shampoos, which have a straightening effect, are suitable for this. In our blog you can find the recipe for your selfmade coffeine shampoo.
2. straightening with a hairdryer and a brush
Although the heat will damage your hair, a hairdryer produces less heat than a straightening iron. To straighten your hair with a hairdryer, you should brush your hair slowly and blow-dry it parallel to the brush with a distance of about 15cm.
3. straightening iron
Even if it damages the hair, sometimes there is no other option than to use the straightening iron. However, it is essential that you use heat protection spray before use, so that the heat does not damage your hair too much. It is also very important, that your hair is not wet anymore when you start to straighten your hair. The same applies, of course, if you use a hairdryer. If you style your hair with heat, haircare is even more important.
