Heat styling haircare: flat iron mistakes you might be making

Heat styling haircare: flat iron mistakes you might be making

Turn down the heat

Just because your flat iron can produce the heat of a thousand suns, doesn't mean it needs to. It all depends on your hair, but most people definitely don't need the highest temperature available.

Very curly, thick or coarse hair may need emperatures up to 400° but, by and large, normal hair can be ironed at around 300-380°, and very fine or damaged locks should only be subjected to temperatures below 300° (the same goes for color-treated hair). As a general rule, experiment with lower temps to find out what your minimum should be.


If you find that straightening your hair takes way longer than you anticipated, it could be because you aren't sectioning your hair before you start. By dividing your hair into two or three horizontal sections, you'll be able to keep track of what you've straightened already.

This will speed things up while simultaneously helping you to avoid ironing the same area twice. Double-straightening can cause damage by exposing the hair shaft to twice as much dry heat as it actually needs to get the job done.

No sizzle, no problem

Finally, if you hear a sizzle, your hair may not be totally dry and could, as a result, end up damaged. You should only ever use a flat iron on bone-dry tresses because any moisture on your strands only gets cooked into the hair follicle while you straighten.
