It’s no salon secret that heat styling is harsh on your hair. If you’re addicted to your straightening irons, curling wands and beyond, it’s time to take a break. Giving hair the time to restore itself gives back shine, strength and styling power. Don’t think you need to compromise on looking good, though – these tips are here to make your heat-free hair better than ever.

1. Cleanse

Start your styling right with a shampoo designed to strip away product build-up and the minerals that can make hair dull, lank and lifeless. Deep cleansing gives the perfect base to build your style without weighing down the hair or compromising that natural and shiny look we all love.

2. Get Volume

Creating a curl or wave gives the perfect texture to leave loose and casual, or as a base for a myriad of gorgeous updos. Make the most of your hair’s natural curly tendencies by applying Kérastase Boucles D’Art. A mousse that’s designed to create airy hold and define your curls, the high volume finish with anti-frizz creates a perfect starting point for vintage-inspired updos.

3. Define Your Curls

For extra curly girls, avoiding heat means embracing your natural texture and giving it some stunning definition. Mizani’s D’Tangle is a leave-in moisturising milk designed to emphasize, separate and define your curls. The added glossy, moisture rich finish will make your coily curls the envy of everyone.

4. Ride The Wave

For boho waves, amping up some texture in straight hair is the key. Run a wide-tooth comb through damp hair, apply TIGI Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray from about ear-height through to the ends and give hair a good scrunch as it air dries. Voila – beach babe in an instant, and with this product there’s no out of control frizz to ruin the look!

5. Keep It Straight

For sleek and straight, enhance your naturally straight strands with a smoothing serum that will do away with frizzy fuzz. Brush towel-dried hair through thoroughly to encourage a straight style as it dries. Take a few Designline Silk Drops and apply with the fingers right through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Once you’ve worked most of the product through, lightly run your hands over the surface of your hair to smooth down those flyaways.
