Here we are with our weekly appointment!
After having repaired the hair with a good mask last week, it is equally important to know that our precious hair is not exactly great allies of heat. It is therefore an excellent idea to read up on it in order to always show off healthy hair and today we are here to solve your doubt with our smart tricks!
How do you know if your hair is damaged by heat?
- Discoloration burn : one of the worst! It goes without saying that if you want to dye your hair, AVOID ammonia on your hair. If you often play with the color of your hair, rather focus on products that go away after a few washes, henna or simply ammonia-free dyes.
- Burn from hair styling products : you have to be very careful about using direct heat products in any case. Surely the low-priced products, with blades that are not 100% ceramic should make you turn up your nose, instead of inducing you to buy. But other quality products allow you to regulate the temperature, an optimal option if you have very fine and sensitive hair.
- Burn from hair dryer : this, in addition to damaging the hair, is quite painful for the scalp! Definitely avoid using the hair dryers too close, keeping them at a distance of at least 20cm. It will take a little longer to dry, but it won't be harmful. Beware of the temperature: don't always keep them at maximum heat! Start with a hot blow dry, but once you've removed the excess water, turn the heat down. You will drastically decrease your heat damage.
