6 Flat Iron mistakes to avoid

"You don't need 450 degrees. 410 works for every hair type.
FORGETTING PROTECTION. Not enough people use thermal protectors. Look for a no-hold formula
RUNNING OVER (AND OVER AND OVER) CURLS. Get hair as straight as possible before ironing by stretching out each section with a brush. Then slide the iron slowly and steadily in a single pass. Don't stop and go, or you'll get horizontal lines.
GOING BOARD-STRAIGHT. Instead of ironing hair straight, parallel to your face, move your arm in a C shape as you proceed down the hair, and bend the ends under.
IRONING DAMP HAIR. If you hear a sizzling sound or see steam, ain't good.
THINKING BIGGER IS BETTER. Hulking irons make it hard to get to the hairline where hair tends to be curliest.  Instead choose a straigntener with ceramic or tourmaline plates that are an inch wide.


  1. I need to use a protector more often, I'm guilty of not using!

  2. Thanks for the tips! I need to bring mine down to 410! I try not to iron when hair is even damp but sometimes your in a hurry and I do *slaps head*

  3. Great tips. I've sizzled my hair in the past. Oops.


We love to hear from you!
