Most of you flat irons owners turn on your iron and pump it up to the highest temperature. This could result in major damage to your hair. I just got the 411 on a fantastic tip to assure your locks stay healthy under the heat. How you ask? Turn on your iron to your desired temperature. Take a simple piece of white paper. Clasp the iron plates on to the white paper (almost like you are straightening your hair) and hold for a few seconds. If the paper turns a slight or darker yellow you know your iron is too hot. Lower the temperature and try again.
