Heat Protecting your Hair
No one loves a good blow out and style like we do, but if you use a hairdryer, curing iron, or straightener on a regular basis you're going to want to get some protection. Using heat tools on your hair can lead to a number of different things from colour fade to drying and damage. We want you to have vibrant healthy hair so here's what you need to know about protecting your hair from heat!
Strong hair, WE CARE!
Where does your hair get it's strength (hint: not the gym)? That would be call the cortex. The cortex of the hair shaft is located between the hair cuticle and medulla and is the thickest hair layer. It also contains most of the hair's pigment, giving the hair it's color. When your hair is exposed to tension, friction, and extreme heat without protection, it can make your hair cortex more vulnerable to damage. We recommend getting started from the moment you shampoo. To relieve stressed out strands, try the Neuro Lather HeatCTRL Shampoo for the ultimate cleansing shampoo experience. Follow this step with Neuro Rinse HeatCTRL . Conditioner. Then, to repair the hair, use Neuro Repair HeatCTRL Treatment to help restore moisture to smooth and condition dehydrated hair.
Now don't get us wrong, your hair has a natural protector called the cuticle but with exposure to high heat tools such as hairdryers and irons, without protection there is potential for dehydration causing the outer cuticle to crack. Hair becomes dry, frizzy, and unmanageable. The Neuro Prime HeatCTRL Blowout Primer prepares strands for blow-drying and delivers advanced thermal protection to help protect against heat damage.
Keeping your Colour
We love helping you achieve your perfect colour, it's one of the things that makes you "you", so we would hate to see your colour fade prematurely. Using heat tools without protection accelerates the fading of colour.
If you're panicking, don't worry, we can help you protect your hair. We're not saying it's liquid gold, but it is Paul Mitchell's Neuro Liquid with Heat CRTL Technology. What's that? A heat-activated, scientifically proven blend that helps protect hair against damage caused by daily combing, blow-drying, and smoothing. The "sciencey" part...proteins and silicones crosslink to repair the cuticle. Simply put, it creates a barrier that activates with heat, friction, or stress! For thermal protection from damaging styling irons that perfectly delivers both beautiful shine and firm hold, try the Neuro™ Protect HeatCTRL® Iron Hairspray.
