When it comes to your hairstyle, you may be looking to swap your go-to heat-free looks for styles that come courtesy of heat tools. Of course, it’s important to note that heat styling isn’t always as foolproof as a heat free alternative. After all, you can’t just scrunch and go. When reaching for a curling iron, hair straightener, or blow dryer, there are certain techniques and hair styling products you should keep in mind (and on hand). Keep clicking for everything you need to know if you want to use heat as part of your next beauty look.
While you might think you know it all when it comes to using heat tools, here are three tips to keep in mind so your hair looks and feels fabulous.
How important is it to use a heat protectant when using a heat tool on your hair? So important! If you want to keep your hair healthy, a heat protectant is a complete must. Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, which will give your locks 450-degree heat protection.
Editor’s tip: Not sure how to use a heat protectant? Read our article, How to Use Heat Protectant Before Styling Your Hair.
Why work harder when it comes to getting the style you crave? A little prep work will go a long way, so use a shampoo and conditioner that will get your locks ready for your style of choice.
If you want to straighten your hair…try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner for smooth, frizz-free locks.
If you want to curl your hair…try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner to give your mane luminous shine and lasting volume.
If you want to blow-dry your hair…try the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner for deep moisture, a silky-soft texture, and a healthy shine.
You don’t want to put in all that hard work for nothing! Spray your hair with the L'Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray to keep your styled locks in place.
When blow-drying your hair, there are several hair style products you can use beforehand that will make the process a little easier. The L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray and L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream are both products you should add to your blow-drying arsenal.

Straight hair is a classic look that will likely never go out of style. There is something so edgy yet sophisticated about this ‘do. Just as with blow-drying, there are a few hair styling products you should keep in your cabinet for when you put your straightening iron to use. An anti-frizz cream like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream and an anti-frizz serum like the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum are both prime picks, as they’ll aid you in creating a sleek, polished look.

A curling iron is perfect for transforming your mane into a head of romantic curls—even if you have naturally straight strands. And of course, there are products that can help ensure things go smoothly. Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray to add volume to your roots and the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist to add texture and body throughout your hair.
