Every woman wants to look her best during the holidays. Whether you love sleek, straight hair or glamorous curls, you’ll have to apply heat to your hair to achieve your look. Fortunately, there are ways to protect it. 

Damage prevention

Breakage, dryness and split-ends are all the result of exposing (or overexposing) the hair to heat. Even a weave that has been flat ironed or curled is susceptible to these problems. Therefore, it is very important to protect your hair before heat styling. 

Try Mizani Thermasmooth guard serum (R150, call 0861 113 911 for orders) for curls and Lee Stafford poker straight flat iron protection shine mist (R40, Clicks) for straight hair.

There are ways to fix your hair in time for your office or New Year’s Eve party. Don’t head straight for the relaxer that could cause more damage or a weave to cover it up.
