1. All Heat Is Bad For Your Hair
A lot of curly naturals have had bad experiences with heat and the damage it can cause so it makes sense why some people label heating tools as terrible for their curls. It takes quite a bit of heat to straighten curly hair, especially type 4 hair.
It is important to use heat in moderation and on low heat settings. We have discussed how to do our wash n' dry method, which utilizes low heat to lock in moisture and keep your curls defined and elongated.
The perfect heating tool is our CurlDefiner Natural Hair Dryer because it was specifically designed for curly hair and the heat settings are perfect!
Benefits of Heat
One benefit of using low heat is that it can really help to lock in the moisture, as heat opens up the follicles in your hair. Some naturals choose to diffuse on wash days, which does just that. Also, as mentioned above, heat can help to set your hair style and ultimately cause less breakage because our hair is weakest when it is wet.
