Drying and ironing
Before you start ironing make sure your hair is completely dry, wet or damp hair is much weaker and applying the iron in these conditions will multiply the damage. If you want to minimise any damage, we advise you to blow dry your hair at room temperature and once dry start ironing. Only subjecting your hair to high temperatures once, by the way, don't forget to use a heat protectant to protect your hair.
The perfect temperature for your iron
When it comes to adjusting the temperature of your straightener, you should always select a setting between 160 and 230 degrees. If you have fine or damaged hair, choose 160 degrees, if your hair is healthy and not coloured, go up to 180 degrees and, finally, if your hair is thick, unruly and healthy, choose 230 degrees.
The step-by-step ironing process
Once you have selected the right temperature for your hair type, divide your hair into small sections and pass the straightener through each one. Try to run the iron through each strand as few times as possible and, if you do more than one pass, wait for the hair to cool down before running it through again.
