Excessive heat styling can cause damage and breakage, especially to thin hair, so taking precautions to minimize damage is important, such as ensuring you are using a heat protectant spray and selecting the correct heat setting.
Styling Tools for Thin Hair
Can using heat styling tools on my thin hair cause damage?
How can I prevent damage to my hair when using heat styling tools?
Use a heat protectant spray, adjust the heat setting according to your hair type (390℉ or lower for thin hair, 390-420℉ for normal hair and up to 450℉ for thick hair), invest in high-quality tools, deep condition regularly, and avoid unnecessary pulling or tugging on your hair. Our Tourmaline tools are recommended for thinner hair types, as the ceramic infusion provides additional protection.
How can I choose the right heat setting for my thin hair?
Choose the lowest heat setting possible to minimize damage to your thin hair. Bombay Hair styling tools range from 170-450℉. We recommend 390℉ or less for thin hair, 390-420℉ for normal hair and up to 450℉ for thick hair. Keep in mind that when heat styling hair extensions, the lower the heat, the better for longevity (390℉ or less).
