To create less damage to your hair we advise to avoid these most common flat iron mistakes that everyone has done!
You don't need the highest temperature for the straighteners to work properly, using them a few degrees below the highest temperature will save your hair dramatically whilst still giving you a professional finish.
If you hear a sizzling sound or see steam, STOP! This is the ultimate hair damage causing brittleness and split ends. Make sure your hair is completely dry before straightening. (Or curling!) Unless you are using a heat protector spray then this noise/ steam is it just evaporating!

Larger irons make it harder to get to the hairline, try to choose straighteners that have ceramic or tourmaline plates that are about an inch wide to make sure you can get to the hairline. Try our Titanuim Ionic Professional Hair Straighteners - £98 that have smooth, drag free plates to create the perfect straight look.
Heat protection is a must, your hair is just as important as your skin! Creating a layer of protection means that the heat damage is reduced massively and can even make your hair react better to the heat.
Make sure you get the hair as straight as possible before using the irons by stretching out the hair with a brush. Once using the iron go slow and steadily rather than having to keep on repeating the action as this will cause less damage. Try our Mixed Bristle Oval Brush - £24 that protects the scalp, reduces static and gently detangles hair whilst forming texture in preparation for styling.
