I do a lot of musicals and plays and doing my hair uses a lot of heat. How should I save my hair?

I typically do 2-3 a year, one in fall (3 shows), one in spring (5 shows), and one in the summer (three shows). The dressing room always smells like burning hair and that scares me a little. What is a good way to protect my hair?

The obvious option may be to wear a weave or wig but that could only last so far under heat and regular upkeep. Try using other methods to stretch the hair such as banding. If you're looking to achieve a curl try flexi rods or perm rods with some moisturizer and hair moose.
