Tip of the Day: Hair

Want to reduce hair damage from irons, curlers and blowdryers?

by the editors of MORE.com

If at all possible, try to work more with your natural texture or at least give the hot tools a rest on the weekends. And whenever you’re styling, thoroughly spritz your strands first with a heat- protectant spray such as John Frieda Frizz-Ease Heat Defeat Protective Styling Spray ($7; drugstores) or Oribe Royal Blowout Spray ($42; oribe.com). Opt for ceramic tools over traditional metal ones (ceramic doesn’t get as hot as metal, so there’s less strand-sizzling as you style) and try twice-a-week deep conditioning treatments. Finally, if you need a little inspiration when it comes to working with, rather than against, your hair’s natural texture, go to more.com/naturalhair. We’re showcasing dozens of celebrities who’ve stopped fighting their tresses’ natural texture—and started, at last, to show it off.
