5. Use Light Lotions to Protect Strands While Heat Styling
Speaking of heat protection, this is key no matter how you style your hair. Whether you're using a hair dryer, flat irons or curlers, make sure you shield locks from scorching temperatures. Dry, brittle hair will benefit from a light yet lustrous lotion to level up hydration as it protects, which is why we always treat parched strands to EIMI Flowing Form.
Layer it through while hair is still damp and, if you're going for straight hair, blow-dry with the nozzle pointing downwards. This will encourage the hair cuticle to lie flat, so you get a smoother, sleeker finish. For curly hair, dry with a diffuser to encourage beautiful coils and waves, taking care to work section by section for major body and movement.
Then, before using any further hot tools (such as straighteners or curling irons), mist EIMI Thermal Image heat protectant spray through dry strands from root to tip. This way, you'll safeguard hair from heated styling tools, all while unlocking your perfect look.
6. Ensure Dry Hair is Trimmed Regularly
Dry hair is prone to breakage through the lengths – and especially through the tips. That’s why you might start to notice split ends, leaving your locks looking less tidy than you’d like. While you put strands through the hydrating steps above to pamper hair back to its healthiest, make sure you’re also getting regular trims to snip away snapping tresses. A cut every six to eight weeks is recommended for smoother ends. Gradually, you’ll notice hair looks neater and even feels thicker, with no dry, wispy sections in sight.
