We all know it is way better for our hair to be air-dried, but sometimes we just don’t have the time to let it air dry. Whether you only use your blow dryer occasionally or use it every day, it is important to the health of your hair to be smart about drying. Experts recommend leaving your blow-dryer on the medium setting. Just because it is hotter and higher and dries your hair faster doesn’t mean it is better for your hair! If your hair is thin, damaged, or colored, you should stick to a lower setting for extra heat protection. To avoid even more damage, here are three more things you can do.

  1. Use natural shampoo and conditioner: Using a natural shampoo and conditioner combo keeps your hair as nourished as possible, and these products are free from sulfates and other damaging ingredients.
  2. Use 2 methods of drying: To keep your hair damage to a minimum, air dry it for a bit before blow drying it. Experts recommend letting it air dry 80%, then finishing the last 20% of drying with your blow-dryer.
  3. Protect: Use a heat-protectant before blow drying. Try and find one that protects and also conditions and strengthens at the same time.1447687591-tresemme-heat-tamer-spray

If you’re like me, then part of your morning routine for 50% of the week involves a flat iron, whether it is curling, straightening, or taming frizz. Unfortunately for us, flat irons can cause some major damage to your fragile locks! If you want to have healthy hair but also want to style it using heat, you can have the best of both worlds if you follow the following tips!

  1. Prep with a smoothing shampoo: Use a heat repair shampoo and conditioner combo to prep and protect your hair! It will help replenish moisture back to it and get it ready for your next heat-styling sesh.k2-_27f2a273-f3b2-40c3-8171-8cb069f0ab81.v1.jpg-493a3404189bedd09678a1acfe8f1b1931fc92e3-optim-450x450
  2. Protect your strands: Before you heat up your hair, spray a good heat protectant on it. Pick one that protects from damage as well as smooths and adds shine! It will prevent it from becoming dry and stiff after you straighten it.
  3. Use ceramic plated irons: Ceramic plates protect your hair with negatively charged ions and helps keep your hair smooth.
  4. Use a deep conditioner: Once a month, treat your hair to some moisture! Your hair needs restoration if you frequently use heat on it, so letting a deep conditioner soak about 10 minutes on your strands once a month, then rinse and let your hair air dry!

Protecting your hair is so so important if you use hot tools often. The more you protect, the longer it will grow and the better it will look!

I always get nervous when I straighten/curl my hair. I hate damaging it! I go through so much heat protectant because of my long thing hair. In order to keep your hair growing long and strong, you need to protect it from damage. The main thing that heat protectant does is moisturize your hair, so why not do it naturally? Here is how:Olive-oil

I did my research and found that coconut oil can actually work as a heat protectant! It is inexpensive, smells wonderful, and works! I usually put it on my hair when it is wet and then use a brush to evenly distribute it. Only use a little bit because it can make your hair a wee bit greasy if you use too much. It makes my hair so so so silky smooth! Also, after I use coconut oil as heat protectant on my hair and then straighten it, it stays straight ALL day! You can use other oils on your hair that work just as well as coconut oil in the “protectant” area! These oils are argan oil, shea butter, olive oil, and grape seed oil.

Using oils on your hair helps your hair replenish its natural oils, which is super healthy for your hair! Try these techniques and comment below and tell me how it goes!

I am enjoying healthy, moisturized hair, and you can too!
