The One Thing You Should Always Do Before Straightening You Hair

June 22, 2016 by Keren Leshem

When my 13-year-old self got her hands on a flat iron for the first time, she knew we would have a long relationship. My life changed – I went from having 100% poofy hair to sleek, shiny and straight hair. I remember sitting in my mom’s bathroom, having her go through my curly locks, section by section, until my hair was ready for the birthday party I had that day.

Since then, I’ve become a pro at flat ironing. I’ve perfected how to section my hair off, apply the right products and even curl my ends. BUT – there is still one HUGE mistake that many women make when using a flat iron, and I do too (guilty).

Your hair needs to be completely dry before you begin with an iron. Hearing that sizzle is your biggest enemy! Ironing even partially-wet hair can cause damage, possibly creating even more dead ends and burnt hair (no!) You shouldn’t put hair products in either, unless they are specifically meant for heat protection. Running the iron over anything else just burns the product into your follicle. We recommend the It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-In Conditioner ($18.99)

It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Conditioner ($18.99)

So next time you want to hit-up the flat iron, make sure your hair is bone-dry, because honestly, no one needs any more split ends!
