6 Flat Iron mistakes to avoid

CRANKING UP THE HEAT—ALL THE WAY.
"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, well...it 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.
