It's all too easy to get addicted to your flat iron. It is, after all, the magic wand that can eliminate frizz, add shine and make your hair all sleek and straight and perfect. Unfortunately, using a flat iron all the time can cause heat damage which can lead to breakage and split ends.

To make sure that doesn't happen to your mane, it's good to take a break every now and then! To help you do just that, we have a few simple tips and tricks.

Embrace your blowdryer

A great way to minimize the amount of flat ironing you need to do is by getting the bulk of the work done with your blowdryer. Apply Advanced Hairstyle BLLW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream, then use a paddle brush to guide the hair straight as it dries. That way, you'll only need to use a flat iron as a finishing tool.

FYI, to get the most out of your dryer, it's worth investing in one that's quite powerful and comes with a concentrator attachment that will help reduce frizz while drying.

Let the products do the work

In a similar vein, use your hair products the way they were intended to be used: to make things really easy for you! To Speed up the drying process and protect your hair, use Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray, then apply the Thermal Smoother Cream before completing your blowout. Once dried, soothe your locks and add shine with a serum.

Try a heat-free hairstyle

Effortless wavy hairstyles are a huge trend this season, so why not embrace the look with a heat-free styling technique? Not only will it bring your beauty look right up to date, it'll also give your strands a well-deserved break.
