What is heat training for hair?
When people talk about heat training, they’re typically referring to the process of repeatedly straightening natural hair with heat. Most often, training is achieved with a hot comb, old-fashioned Marcel iron or, most commonly, a flat iron. Repeated heat styling may loosen hair’s curly texture over time.
Can you heat train your hair without damaging it?
Heat training without damage starts with your shampoo and conditioning regimen, a solid heat protectant, and a good blow-dried foundation. A good blow-dry is the key to having healthy heat trained hair, says McField. Blow dry heat does not trap heat within your hair; however, a flat iron does.
Is 450 degrees too hot for hair?
Your hair can withstand a temperature of 450F before burning or becoming damaged. Simply using heat does not automatically mean that your hair is or will become damaged. In most cases, healthy hair will only experience heat damage with excessive use of heat or using heat appliances at temperatures of 450F or more.
How often do hairdressers heat Train Your Hair?
They might do this anywhere from once a week to once every few weeks. Over time, the idea is that the bonds in the hair weaken, so hair becomes less and less likely to revert. However, with the right routine (and stylist), heat training hair without damage while maintaining your curls (even if they’re more relaxed) is possible.
