So, how often can you use heating tools on your hair without damage?

The answer depends on several factors, including the type and condition of your hair, the temperature of the tools, and the frequency of use.
Generally, it is recommended that you limit the use of heating tools to two or three times a week to prevent damage to your hair.

If you have fine or thin hair, it's essential to use a lower heat setting on your tools to avoid damage. If you've read one of our articles or looked at our socials before, you'll know we are SUPER PASSIONATE about *gently suggesting* you should use a heat protectant product before using any heating tool on your hair.

For those with thicker or coarser hair, you may be able to use heating tools more frequently, but it's still important to take precautions to avoid damage. Using a high-quality heat protectant, using a lower heat setting, and avoiding holding the tool on any one section of hair for too long can help prevent damage.
Ultimately, the key to using heating tools without causing damage is to use them in moderation and take steps to protect your hair from heat damage. If you notice signs of damage, such as split ends or excessive dryness, it's essential to take a break from using heating tools and focus on repairing your hair with nourishing treatments and products.
