With the leaves changing colors and the air getting cooler, fall brings out a fresh feeling in all of us. As our favorite hoodies and boots are pulled out of the back of the closet, the change of season provides an opportunity for new styles. So as you button up that cute flannel and slip on a comfy pair of leggings, don’t forget about styling your hair for the season. Humidity has gone into hibernation until next summer, so pull out that straightener. If you need a push in the right direction, here is some flat iron advice for this exciting time of year.
Heat Protection is Essential
Many don’t think twice about their straightener, but they’re willing to put their hair through the rigors of immense heat daily. There’s nothing wrong with straightening your hair; actually, rocking straight hair during this season offers so many style options that we can’t help but praise. However, many make the mistake of haphazardly using a flat iron, but we’re here to straighten things out with some flat iron advice.
First off, you’ll want a high-quality flat iron. Sure, any old straightener will do, but you’ll inflict damage to your hair over time by using a low-end flat iron. Ensure your hair’s health by giving it the straightener it deserves.
Now that we have the proper tool, let’s dive into how to use it. Make sure the temperature is set appropriately so you don’t fry your hair. For fine hair, make sure your flat iron is set at sub-300 degrees. Set your flat iron at 300–380 degrees for normal hair, and set it at 350–400 degrees for thick hair. Of course, now that the temperature is in the right spot, feel free to be as creative and expressive as you’d like; flaunt those locks!
With the temperature set, you still have one more step in making sure your hair is as healthy as possible: Use a heat-protecting product. Applying a heat protector to your hair before straightening it will pay off dividends in the long-run. To apply, start from the bottom and comb the product with your fingers into your hair. If you don’t want your hair to have an oily, greasy appearance afterward, don’t apply it too close to your scalp as that area of your hair has a lot of natural oil already from being so close to your skin; adding more to it could be a good idea but might make the area more oily.
