I see a lot of damaged hair in the salon, and the biggest culprit is..... the flat iron. Flat iron abuse causes serious dryness, breakage, and frizz. Not a pretty sight! The more you use it, the more your hair looks like it needs flat ironed (because of the frizz and split ends). But you can break the cycle of flat iron abuse!
One quick tip- if you know you're going to flat iron your hair in the morning, wash it the night before. Let it air dry over night so you don't have to blow it dry before you flat iron. It cuts down on the heat styling and saves you time. Never ever flat iron your hair when it's wet. And always use a flat iron spray or heat protecting spray!
