6 Tips to Avoid Heat Damaged Hair

No matter how hard we try it seems almost impossible to stay away from using heat on our hair. Hot tools are amazing to create gorgeous hairstyles but just how bad is heat styling for your hair? In short, damaged hair and excessive heat styling definitely go hand-in-hand. If you aren’t protecting your hair from hot tool, then you can be drying it out or causing your hair color to fade. Putting down your hot tools for good isn’t always an option and it doesn’t have to be. If you want to keep using your curling irons, straighteners, and blow dryers, you just have to take a few extra precautions. Here are a few tips everyone who styles their hair should know about.


1.   Use a heat protectant:

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it is important to always use a heat protectant. Think of using heat protectant like using sunscreen before leaving your house. These products help to protect your hair, keep it healthy, and lock in your hair color.


2.   Set the right temperature:

After applying the heat protectant, make sure you’re using the right temperature when styling your hair. Thinner, finer hair has a higher chance of getting damaged; it’s always better to use a lower temperature when styling your hair. Try staying under 200 degrees Fahrenheit when curling or straightening your hair. If you have thicker hair, you can keep your hot tools set between 200 and 300 degrees Fahrenheit.


3.   One and done rule:

When using a hot tool to style your hair, don’t repeatedly run the tool through the same section of hair. You may think you are just trying to perfect that section of hair, but you could actually be causing damage. If your hot tool is set on the correct temperature setting, then one pass should be plenty enough.


4.   Monitor your frequency:

Try paying closer attention to how often you are using your hot tools. If you are using your hot tools too frequently, your hair may become brittle and damaged no matter how cautious you are. Try cutting back on the heat tools and give your hair a break.


5.   Follow up with a hair mask:

It is important to replenish your hair’s natural moisture after any heat styling. Try using a hydrating hair mask once a week and asking for a protein treatment every time you’re in a Redken elite salon. These two treatments combined will help strengthen your hair and keep your hair as healthy as possible. Your expert stylist will be able to recommend the best hair mask for your hair type.


6.   Try heatless hairstyles:

On days you aren’t using your heat tools, turn to heatless hairstyles to tame your mane. From boho braids to a messy up do, there are several gorgeous and easy-to-do hairstyles that don’t require the use of a hot tool. Be sure to keep some bobby pins and hairspray around for extra hold.

Curious about what else you should know about heat styling? Chat with your Redken stylist to see what steps you should be taking to protect your hair, and learn more about repairing already damaged hair

Thank you for kicking off the Holiday season with your family at Heath Salon & Spa and making the Holidays extra bright for those in our community in need.

Patriot PAWS and Lakeside Ambucs are both such needed organizations in our community because they help our neighbors, families, co-workers and friends in need.

Kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness month in Heath, TX

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 11.42.43 AM Kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness month in Heath, TX 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the team at Heath Salon & Spa is ready to Think Pink!

“Breast cancer awareness is nothing to be shy about!” says Jauna, Heath Salon & Spa’s owner, “…it is so important for us as women to be aware of the dangers out there and to support researching Breast Cancer.”

The kick-off event: Hunt Regional Healthcare, headquartered in Greenville, Texas, has teamed up with Heath Salon & Spa to bring their Mobile Mammography Coach to Heath!

On October 1st, 2015, their team of professionals will be available at the salon and spa for Mammogram exams beginning at 9am!

Why is this Mobile Mammography Coach so special? Hunt Regional Healthcare has created a system that allows women several different payment options and offers financial aid for those that qualify. We are honored to work with them to spread the word about breast cancer awareness, prevention and research. Thanks to the Affordable Care act, women 40 years of age and older may receive a mammogram every year. (Some restrictions may apply depending on chosen coverage.)

Women may opt to pay a flat fee of $100 or may apply for assistance to cover the cost.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 1.20.56 PMFrequently asked questions:

 1) Why should I get a Mammogram?

 -Doctors recommend that any woman over the age of 40 should get a breast exam once a year.

 -Any woman, regardless of age, that has or has had a family member that was diagnosed with breast cancer.

 -To catch early signs of breast cancer and prevent it from spreading.

2) Yes, it is OK to get an exam if you are pregnant.

3) Yes, it is OK to get an exam if you have breast implants.

4) The service offered is a standard screening mammogram, not a diagnostic mammogram. (Those are preformed at a hospital.)

*Appointments and preregistration are requested for Mammogram screenings on October 1st.

Simply call 903.408.5010 to schedule your appointment and for more information.

For information on resources available for uninsured/income-eligible women, please call Texas Agrilife at 903-590-2988 or The Bridge Breast Network at 214-821-3820 x 23.


Community support: In addition to bringing Mammogram exams to our small town, Heath Salon & Spa plans to donate a percentage of sales on select pink products throughout the month of October! Proceeds will go to a local woman in our community who has been diagnosed with breast cancer and in need of financial assistance. Products include Redken’s new Pink Diamond Oil, Mlis Tissue Repair Cream and Pureology’s new pink line called “Smooth Perfection”.



We encourage you to THINK PINK and support Breast Cancer Awareness and research.
