Let's face it. At some point, you are more than likely going to stretch or straighten your natural or transitioning hair.

Whether it be a regular part of your wash day routine (like stretching your roots for a super voluminous wash and go), blow-drying your hair to prevent tangling during protective styling, prepping for a knock-out bantu knot-out, or even flat ironing for a sleek look, protective measures are always necessary to prevent damage.

This is how to get the most out of your heat stretching without compromising the health of your hair.

Step 1: Heat Protection

Always, always, ALWAYS protect your hair when it comes to manipulating it with heat.

Protecting your hair from dryness, cracked cuticles, breakage, and heat damage starts on wash day. A moisturizing shampoo or cowash, a great deep conditioner, and stellar heat protecting/leave-in products are a must. Making sure hair is properly moisturized and protected will guarantee a better finished product.

These products are all great heat protectants that will help moisturize, strengthen, and prevent heat damage:
