Protect Your Hair from Daily Heat Styling

Protect Your Hair from Daily Heat Styling

Heat styling can give you a gorgeous hairdo, but it can also damage your hair. Here are some techniques you can use to protect your hair from damage:

Set the Right Temperature – When curling or straightening your hair, be sure you’re not cranking to heat up too high. For fine, thin hair, try to stay under 200 degrees. For thick, coarse hair, try to keep your styling tools set between 200 and 300 degrees. Unless of course, you’re using The Formula Heat Styler, which can allow you to style at higher temperatures without damaging your hair.

One and Done – When heat styling your hair it is vital not to overdo it. Don’t repeatedly style the same section of hair over and over. While you may think you’re setting the style more securely, you may be frying your hair.

Limit Frequency – Monitor how often you style your hair using heat and try to limit the frequency. Even if you are cautious when heat styling you may still damage your hair if you are curling or straightening too frequently. With The Formula, your hair can withstand daily heatstyling while remaining totally protected.

Use a Hair Mask – Use a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment once a week to moisturize your hair after repeated styling. Be sure to use a good conditioner when you shampoo your hair as well.

Use a Good Natural Heat Protectant – Before you pick up that styling wand, it is essential to spray your hair down with an excellent natural heat protectant like The Formula Heat Styler. Our proprietary blend of 100% natural ingredients protects your hair from heat damage and humidity. Our formula allows you to maintain your style between shampoos with confidence.  

 

Add These Foods to Your Diet for Strong Hair

Add These Foods to Your Diet for Strong Hair

Healthy hair starts from the inside out. Here are some foods you can add to your diet to encourage shiny, healthy hair:

Salmon and Other Fatty Fish – Salmon and other fatty fish like sardines and mackerel are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids that keep your hair shiny and full. Your body does not make these healthy fats, so you need to take them in through food or supplements.

Greek Yogurt – Protein is the building block of your hair, and Greek yogurt is full of it. It also contains vitamin B5, which is known to fight hair loss and keeps blood flowing to your scalp to encourage growth. B5 (pantothenic acid) is often found in hair and skincare products.

Spinach and Other Dark, Leafy Greens – Vitamin A, iron, beta carotene, folate, and vitamin C are all essential for maintaining hair and scalp health. Dark leafy greens are packed with these nutrients. Add them to a salad or smoothie for hair health.

Guava – Guava contains 377 milligrams of vitamin C per cup, helping you fight hair breakage.

Lean Protein – Protein is necessary for healthy hair growth, so add lean meats like chicken or turkey to your diet.

Cinnamon – This spice helps improve circulation, bringing oxygen and nutrients to your follicles and encouraging hair growth.

Eggs – In addition to iron and protein, eggs contain biotin – an ingredient vital to hair health. Getting more biotin in your diet will also help strengthen your nails.

Your diet can help your hair look its best, but how do you protect it from daily heat styling and environmental damage. Check out our natural hair care product, The Formula Heat Styler and never have a bad hair day again.
