Straighteners, curlers, hair dryers: what should I do before using them?

It’s simple; you simply cannot manage without your hot styling tools! And, you use them on a daily basis to create most of your hairstyles. Discover what you should do to get the best use out of them whilst keeping your hair in good health.

Rule n°1: follow a specialised hair regime

If you are a fan of blow-drying your hair, go for products from the Liss Therapy Range. These treatments are perfect for coating your hair so it reacts best with the heat. They also facilitate styling, ensuring maximum hold. Finally, they keep your hair hydrated, supple and luminous for weeks.

Our advice: don’t use hot tools on hair which is too dry or damaged. This will only make your hair more fragile. First of all, take the time to deeply restructure your hair with targeted treatments, such as those from the Keratin Therapy range.

Rule n°2: protect your hair from the heat

Always apply thermo-active treatment to your hair before straightening or curling it. By doing this, you will protect it from high temperatures which damage and dry out the hair fibre. Your essential beauty treatment? Absolute Shine Leave-In Thermo-Active Treatment! It acts as a shield and give maximum shine to your hair.

Rule n°3: take into account the nature of your hair

It’s one of the essential conditions for keeping your hair in full health long term! You should know what the ideal temperature is for using your heating device. As a general rule, you should not go higher than 180 degrees with fine or sensitised hair. On the other hand, you can go up to 210 degrees if your hair is thick, curly or frizzy. Therefore always work in a way which is personalised for your hair type!
