What causes heat damage?

Curly hair is naturally more prone to breakage as the oils from the scalp struggle to get past all of the kinks and curls to nourish the whole strand and ends of the hair, leaving curls in constant danger of drying out. If you’re adding heat styling to this inherently dry hair type, you’re even more susceptible to dehydrated hair, vulnerable to breakage and frizz in desperate need of knowing how to restore curly hair.
