How can I prevent my hair from getting fried by my blow-dryer or flat iron

What happens to your hair from these tools is the same thing that happens to your skin if you lie under the sun and go in and out of the water without applying protection—you get all dried up (not to mention sunburned!). The advice I give to all my clients is to wash and towel-dry hair at night, apply your styling product—a smoothing cream or shine serum—then air-dry. When you go to style it in the morning, your hair will be armed with some of its own natural oils. Besides, hair is strongest when it’s dry, so it can better withstand hot styling tools. Apply a heat protectant spray to shield hair from damage, and style as usual. Believe it or not, most people find their hair much easier to work with this way. It’s a lot faster—and healthier!
