Boost Your Hair’s Heat ToleranceHealthy hair burns at just over 450F. But the key to this fact is the word “healthy”. The temperature your hair can tolerate decreases if colored or styled often, dropping the amount of heat you can take even lower. This means hair can burn at temperatures as low as 250F but most flat irons are programmed to automatically turn on at 400F. So, what can you do to boost your hair’s heat tolerance and style without more stress on the cuticle?
In a recent study, White Sands The Fix demonstrated the ability to protect hair from thermal damage at 450 degrees and showed no damage from a hot flat iron. It also showed a 152% shine improvement over untreated hair.
Besides being a heat protectant, The Fix can even be used on wet or dry hair as a detangler and blowout booster for quicker styling times. This leave-in smoothes out rough spots and frizz, and leaves a flawless finish after each use.
