  1. Do you use heat to style or dry your hair?
    Do you put heat protector on it?
  2. My hair is so damaged from bleaching that I never use heat on it. Before when it was healthier I would use a straightening iron to style it sometimes, rarely ever blow dried it. my leave in conditioner has heat protector in it.

  3. I blow dry my hair if I wash it in a morning but only so that I don't get cold having wet hair. I prefer to just leave it to dry naturally if I can. I occasionally curl it but that's a rare thing.

  6. Nah. I used to straighten my hair almost every day back in high school but now it's very rare that I'll use heat on it at all. I don't want to damage it, especially since I've bleached it before. It's not worth it.

  7. I only blow dry my hair after dyeing it. I put my hair in braids when it's wet to make it curly.

    If I had a curling iron and time in the morning, I would curl it.

  10. Rarely. I may do it every other month when I want it straight. Last year, I only used heat three times. When I do, it's both to dry and style. I use a couple heat protectants when I do.

  11. I'm not sure why or how my hair is so healthy. I spent all of my teenage years bleaching it and dying it every color. I've heat styled it almost every day since I was 14. And still yet, every time I go into the hair salon, the stylist gushes about how silky and healthy my hair is. It baffles me. I only wash it once every 3-4 days, but I blow dry it on high heat and use a straightener to style it every day. I don't use any chemicals on it anymore though, and I use hair oil and leave in conditioner before I blow dry it.

  12. Its kinda amazing to me how many people don't use heat so far.
    I wash daily and blow dry daily. Its curly but I am a clean freak so I just can't skip washing or the paranoia starts to seep in. lol
    I do deep condition a couple times a week and use heat protectors + a nightly oil spray
  13. No, my hair is naturally thin/weak and also a couple of years ago I was stupid enough to dye my hair black and THEN bleach it to platinum blonde within 6 months.
    It's already a miracle that I'm not bald so I won't push my luck by using heat.
  14. No heat for me, please.

    I straightened my hair every day for years because I have wavy hair that I didn't know how to manage. My mom has stick straight hair, so she always chastised me for not brushing my hair enough and calling it a "rat's nest" (thanks, Mom).

    I now follow a modified version of the curly girl method.
  15. I'm just too lazy to use heat. I have pretty thick hair so it takes awhile to dry it or style it. I use to straighten my hair a lot but to me it's not worth the time or damage to only have straight hair for two days. I did use heat protector whenever I would blow dry it or straighten it though.
  16. I very rarely use heat on it. If I want it styled I'll do something like braid my hair while its still wet. I used to blow dry but now I'm trying to grow it out so I stopped.
  17. i have curly hair and i've stopped using heat to dry it. i do still straighten it sometimes for special occasions
  18. i have curly/wavy hair but i use heat to style because otherwise it makes me anxious hhh
  19. I had a keratin treatment done after bleaching, which helped a lot, so I don't have too many problems with occasionally using heat to curl my hair. Strangely, blow-drying my hair will do a lot more damage.
  20. No heat protection, blow dry it weekly maybe 2-3 times. I wash my hair daily in the mornings so if I can't get it dry before I gotta go then I blow dry it. But most of the days it can naturally dry cause I take a shower first thing in the morning, then after two hours or so I leave the house. And my hair is pretty short under my ears.
