Tourmaline titanium flat iron

How many times a week can you straighten your hair without damaging it?

It's generally suggested that heat styling be done not more than once a week . Natural hair should always be freshly shampooed, conditioned, and completely dry before heat styling. Straightening dirty hair with a flat iron will only burn oil and dirt, which will lead to more damage.

"You should not flat iron natural hair more than once a month , especially if your hair is color-treated or damaged," says Powell. "Even once a month can be considered pushing it, so if you are flat ironing that frequently, it's important that you are hyper-aware of your hair's health."
