2. Avoid using extreme heat on your hair to style. When possible try to avoid heat all together. Use other methods of achieving curls and style settings like magnetic rollers, wet setting and curlformers. Heat should NOT be used everyday of the week. If you are going to blow dry your hair make sure it’s partially dry and turn the heat to medium. Just remember too much heat is damaging.
3. Keep up with your trims! Every three weeks to shape up, Every seven to eight weeks for a FULL CUT when you get your touch up.
