It’s been a hot and humid summer here in Washington, D.C., which has caused me to flat iron my hair at least four times a week in order to keep my style intact. Needless to say, the heat of the sun, the humidity, plus constant flat ironing has caused my hair to get damaged. As I looked in the mirror and sectioned off a piece of my bang to flat iron I noticed that this ONE piece never got flat; it was fuzzy all the time no matter how much heat I applied to it. That is when I decided that this madness had to stop. I searched online and went to the nearest beauty supply store to pick up some styling products that would help protect my hair from heat damage and eliminate frizz. While I chemically treat my hair with a relaxer to keep it straight, I have also provided some styling products and tips below for ladies with curly and wavy hair. So, before you go out and play in the sun or heat up that curling iron, please consider picking up some products that will help moisturize your hair and protect it from damaging elements.
Aveda Damage Remedy and Moisture Remedy are good product lines that can help repair any hair damage. I’ve also found that CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray is a great way to protect your hair against curling iron or flat iron damage.
You don’t want this damage…
