2. Heat protector
Before passing the iron, it is necessary to apply a heat protector throughout the hair, since, in this way, we reduce the damage produced by the iron in the hair.
3. Separate strands
To work better, it is important to separate the hair into strands and pass the straightener over each of them, so we avoid passing the straightener many times and the results are better.
4. Pass the iron slowly
If we iron a hair strand quickly, we will not achieve the desired result and we will have to make a second pass, harming the hair more. It is important to pass the iron slowly, to make it more effective and avoid second passes.
It is not necessary to press too hard when passing the iron: it is necessary to do it slowly, but in a gentle way, treating the hair with delicacy.
6. Do not use it daily

Do not turn ironing into a daily beauty routine and leave the iron for special occasions.
