The One Thing You Should Never Do When Straightening Your Hair

Super sleek, straight hair is always on trend. But straightening your hair is easier said than done. Chances are, you’re damaging your hair without realizing it. The one thing you want to avoid at all costs is burning your hair. If you hear sizzling or see steam, you should immediately stop straightening your hair. It’s crucial to make sure your hair is completely dry before you straighten it. If you are using a heat protectant (which I highly recommend), be sure to apply the product to damp hair and make sure your hair is dry before straightening it.

If your hair is definitely dry, product build up could be the problem. Straighteners clamp down on the hair, trapping the product and burning it into the hair follicle. It’s also important to clean you straightener from time to time. Product can build up on the plates, causing your hair to burn. You can clean your iron with warm water and alcohol (just make sure it is unplugged first!).
