Question Posted Saturday April 2 2005, 5:06 pm

I have naturally straight hair, but I like to wear it curly. I just bought my first curling iron, and I think the heat is drying my hair out. Did I buy the wrong product? Or am I just using it incorrectly?

if you use things like curling irons and straighteners on your hair a lot, they can do that to your hair because they take the moisture out sometimes...some cheaper products can do depends what kind of curler you can my some kind of products to make your hair smoother try goin to a beaty supoly store and asking a worker their, or go to a salon and ask. or just earch online! Hope i helped!

I think your just over using it, cut down on the curling, Some times it can put your hair in a really bad way. So cut down! all curling irons make hair dry.

luv roxie

that happens to my hair too from my straight iron and blow dryer.. see i have curly hair and i want it straight all the time.. lol.. but maybe if you have different heat sttings on your curling iron try using it on a lower one and also make sure to use a good conditioner on your hair everyday... i use thermasilk and ithink the one i have is moisture infusing.. and i got it cuz it says heat activated on the bottle lol.. but it seems to work really well with my hair.. im sure there are better ones but thats the one i use. hope i helped

Any kind of hot tool can dry your hair out-curling irons, straighteners-whatever. Just try not to use hot tools too much bc constant use can keep your hair damaged for a long time. Also, make sure u use conditioner in the shower. There are even some types of conditioner that you can leave in your hair-don't put in too much though or it'll get greasy. I think Pantene Pro-v has this stuff you can put in your hair before using a hot tool to protect it-i'm sure other brands do too though. so good luck!

OK!! DONT USE THE CURLING IRON WITH OUT PROPER PRODUCTS IN YOUR HAIR! All heat irons will dry your hair out! you just need extra moisture from a condition/shampoo or after washing apply a little of conditioner. Pantene Pro V has awesome shampoo for dryed out hair. To style your hair curly or (scrunched) use got2b kinky..its in a orange bottle and its a curling mooose. it is a lot friendlier to your hair than a curling iron! youll have awesome results! hope i could help

There's certain conditioners and gels that can make your hair curly. In my opinion, you're wicked lucky. I have naturally curly hair and it's such a pain. But there's this stuff called Curl Up that you just rub into your hair and it curls. Talk to a hairdresser about it, though.

you may have bought the wrong product because i went to my hairdresser about the same problem and she says that some hair products, such as straighteners, curling irons, and hair dryers, can really dry out your hair if you get the wrong kind... i can'lt remember which ones she said were safe, but i do know you have to get a certain kind.

no.... i mean like well every type of iron like a straightener curling iron crimper etc. will burn your hair becuase of all the heat but if your eally want to use the curling iron then i would buy the "bedhead" conditioner so that your hair is kind of moist and it will still curl. t hats what i do and my hair is fineee no burnt ends (: hope i helped

hey you just need to treat you hair every now and then because like me i dye and straighten my hair so of course it's going to dry out. try to use thermasilk with is heat active design for curling irons and such. and deep condition your hair to renew it to keep it soft and silky. try Neutrogena's Triple Moisture deep recovery $4 at walmart. hope i helped! take care. x3 SweetStar.

mykonstantine101 answered Saturday April 2 2005, 5:49 pm:
if your hair is drying out.. try turning the heat down.. or just not use the curling iron at all.. you can get gel and scrunch your hair.. it makes it curly and you dont have to worry about you hair drying out

Hope i helped
