After drying, do you feel your hair is dry and dull? Will your curly hair does not last as long as before? One of the main reasons for this is simple: your hair is likely to be damaged. To prevent this from happening, it is essential to apply a heat protectant to the hair before heating. In this week’s blog post, we will share some useful and natural ways to protect your hair from the heat setting.
In case you no know, at high temperatures, natural oils will be very similar to silicones by forming a protective barrier around the cuticles. In other words, they can do miracles-protect hair and prevent damage. Here are the three best oils we can pick on our next trip to the grocery store, which can help protect hair from heat damage.
Natural Heat Protectants- Grapeseed Oil
This gorgeous oil, available in most health food stores, has a high smoke point. It can withstand the heat of hair straighteners, curlers, and hair dryers, which means-perfect news for your hair! It will also give your hair a beautiful style. Apply 4-6 drops evenly on the hair and hairstyle as usual.
Natural Heat Protectants- Almond Oil
Similar to grape seed oil, almond oil also has a high smoke point. Its melting point is higher than grape seed oil, so it is very suitable for high-temperature tools. In addition to providing excellent thermal insulation properties, the oil is also rich in vitamins E, D, B1, B2, B6, and A-these are all beneficial nutrients that will allow you to grow strong, healthy and beautiful hair. We recommend that you buy organic cold-pressed varieties. Apply 2 to 3 drops evenly, comb through wet hair, then dry and style.
Natural Heat Protectants- Shea Butter
Shea butter is considered an excellent heat-insulating agent due to its thermal conductivity. It forms a very uniform barrier around the hair, making it as good as popular chemical silicones such as simethicone. Look for the biological term “Butyrospermum parkii (shea butter)” in the ingredient lists of hair masks, finishing products, and blowing intervention preparation sprays. We guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Finally, before styling, make sure to comb your hair thoroughly. It seems to be common sense, but combing the hair and removing all knots means that the styler can easily slide in the hair, minimizing damage.
