6 MISTAKES YOU'RE MAKING WITH YOUR FLAT IRON

1) IRONING WET HAIR: 
There's a reason hairdressers tell you not to comb your hair wet. When it's wet, it's at its most vulnerable. Hair proteins form weaker bonds when wet. Brushing and then applying heat to weak bonds is a recipe for disaster.   



2)  USING FLAT IRONS THAT ARE WAY TOO BIG: 
Hair tends to be the curliest at the root/hairline, and oversized irons make it nearly impossible to reach them. It is recommended to use a one-inch ceramic or tourmaline flat iron.

3)  SETTING THE HEAT TOO HIGH: 

Hair can burn just like your skin — you just can’t feel it! “450 degrees is too high. 410 works on every hair type.” -Nathaniel Hawkins, hairstylist

4)  RUNNING THE FLAT IRON OVER HAIR TOO MANY TIMES: Heat depletes moisture and natural oils from the hair, making it weak and breakable.  The less time heat is on the hair, the better. Use a potent straightening serum  and brush your hair as straight as possible before ironing.

 


5) FORGETTING A THERMAL PROTECTOR: 

Heat protectants are not a marketing ploy. They do a great job at coating the hair and removing frizz. Apply before and after straightening your hair


6) PULLING STRAIGHT DOWN: 

This is the easiest way to flat iron hair, but pulling the hair straight down makes hair flat and not the sexy flat, just pancake flat. Try moving your arm in a c shape as you move down the hair. This motion creates a boost of volume.
