Skipping the heat protectant
If you thought your unprotected hair would do just fine under the high temperature of heat styling, you couldn’t be more wrong. When your tresses are unshielded from the drying heat of styling tools, they become frizzy and break easily. Stop this from happening by spritzing your hair with the Toni & Guy Heat Protection Hair Mist prior to styling. This creates a moisture screen which absorbs heat and prevents dryness and breakage from affecting your hair.
Styling in humid conditions
What we often fail to consider when hairstyling is the humidity in the air. Whether you choose to style your hair in the bathroom mirror or in the midst of a sweaty afternoon on a summer day, humidity is a complete no-no. Dampness in the air makes hair moist, which works against any product or tools used and causes hair to go limp and fall. Avoid hairstyling in humid areas like a bathroom and instead, choose a ventilated, airy space.
Excessive heat styling
We know you love your flat irons and curlers but using them to style your hair daily will do more harm than good. Even with heat protection, regular heating tools sap moisture from the hair, making it coarse and dry. In the long run, this causes hair loss and breakage. So every week, turn off your styler and give your hair a break with no-heat hairstyles instead.
Overdoing the products
Too much of a good thing isn’t all that good—a quote which works aptly for styling products. When used in small amounts; pomade, wax, mousse and hairspray can do wonders to keep your hair styled and sleek. When used in excess, they can leave your hair limp, greasy and cause hair loss. That’s why it’s important to use just the right amount of hair product to get the most out of it for your hair.
Choosing the wrong duo
The right shampoo and conditioner are the foundation of every hair care routine so it’s important to choose the right ones that will support and strengthen your tresses for heat styling. For this, we recommend the TRESemmé Ionic Strength Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo contains Salon Grade Ionic Complex, which protects the hair against damage from electrical devices and heat styling. It also nourishes and restores any damage so you have strong, healthy locks that can withstand anything.
Forgetting your roots
Many assume that hairstyling hinges on sleek lengths and bouncy curls. In the bargain, they forget that their roots are the support system of the hairstyle and ignore it, which causes breakage. When hairstyling, it’s important to give your roots the support and care they deserve by teasing, treating and brushing them. The roots are the bedrock of a stylish hairstyle and healthy hair so make sure you treat them right.
