Blow-drying everyday, using tongs, wands and/or straighteners will all contribute to damage (the girls tease me for being old, because I call them irons! but they don’t call them irons for nothing!) They are Hot hot hot! Now, I’m the first person to love a tong or iron, but these will all damage that all important hair cuticle.
Time and time again, I see a halo of broken strands of hair – usually contributed to blow-drying hair upside down, or randomly blasting it all over the place with an achy arm!
The hair cuticle is like a roof tile; leave those slats to lay flat by keeping your nozzle on your dryer and drying the sections downwards will improve the frizz and condition. A heat protector is 100% essential for anyone using heated appliances. Our favourite in salon is AVEDA Speed of Light (which we go through buckets of!) heat protector AND speeds up your blow-drying time by half – taking away the achy arm completely.
Check your condition easily, by taking a strand of hair and moving your thumb and forefinger upwards – feeling any bumps? Time to talk to Cabello!!
