Protection: Not Just for the Bedroom
Do you use thermal spray when you style your hair? I hope the answer is “YES!” – but I know some of you are probably glad you don’t have to look me in the eyes as you utter a small “no” to yourself. Now look down at your strands. Are they dry? Brittle? Are they splitting on you no matter how many trims you drag yourself to the salon for?
When you use your iron on that section of hair you’ve just nicely coated in thermal spray, make sure you don’t clamp down on your hair too tight. You should be able to move the iron smoothly through your hair without any resistance. Also make sure your heat setting is at the right temperature for your hair. Too much heat is not a good thing – even when using protection! 😉
When using a thermal spray that has some hold in it, you’re best to use it one small section at a time. Don’t spray the whole side of your head at once and then tackle it with your styling iron. You want that section to be freshly sprayed and worked through right before the iron hits it.
