can heat damaged hair be repaired?
the truth is that there is no hard and fast way to repair your hair from heat damage. instead, it’s all about prevention and minimising the damage. here are our top tips for healthy hair.
commit to regular cuts
if your ends are looking a little scraggly, a healthy cut will do wonders when it comes to preventing further damage and stopping split ends from travelling up the hair shaft.
avoid the maximum heat setting when using hot tools
super-high heat actually causes more harm than good. you may be surprised to hear that higher heats don’t correlate with better styling results, so dial back the settings and opt for a temperature between 150°c to 180°c. we even recommend putting down the heat tools for a hot minute to give your hair a bit of a break.
always use heat protectant when heat styling
this one is a no-brainer. before tapping your tresses with the straightener, be sure to apply a heat protectant like icon welder, mister fantastic, toning mist or easy tiger, to make sure your hair is guarded from uv and heat damage.
