WOW! Can you imagine the horror? We’re going to take you through a few precautions to ensure this NEVER happens to you!
When using heat styling tools to style the hair, the same rules do not apply for everyone. First, take a look at your hair’s current condition. Is it dry, brittle, shiny, slick, has it been colored, how many times, has it been lightened? All of these things play a role in how hot is too hot. We always recommend buying a heat styling tool that has a heat setting so you can adjust the temperature properly.
As flat irons are the popular choice in our area for heat styling tools, take a look at the point of difference you get with the Izunami flat iron that was created with the ARROJO brand. Keep in mind, both tools can be ordered through us!
Let’s talk about protection. No matter the condition of the hair, if heat touches it, it should be protected with a heat protectant. This “hair tutorial gone wrong” is another great reason to use professional brand products over drug store brands. The product the girl used in the video was TRESemme Split Remedy Leave-in conditioner which has NO HEAT PROTECTANT IN IT. Professional brands use higher quality ingredients that truly pass the test of performance. Here are our favorites which provide optimum protection when heat styling. Be sure to ask us to use them on your next service if you haven’t experienced their powers yet! (Click the picture for product video, product benefits, pricing and more.)
Now, let’s discuss the temperatures on your tools. A lot of tools (like the ARROJO/Izunami flat iron) get as hot as 450 degrees. This does not mean it’s intended for use on your hair. In most cases, this is the setting that WILL cause your hair to melt. Some hair types and conditions require a hotter setting, such as a healthy head of course curls. But, thin fine hair cannot stand higher settings and should be taken down a few notches. Coloring your hair and heat styling regularly can weaken the hair. Because of this, it’s essential to keep the heat turned down. Otherwise, you are going to create more damage and ultimately your hair will be breaking off quicker than it is growing. Don’t most of us want long luscious hair?? Here’s our recommended heat guide to follow:
1. Completely dry hair before heat styling. Moisture makes hair more susceptible to burning.
2. Distribute heat protectant evenly throughout out hair.
3.Adjust heat setting:
- thick, coarse, extremely curly hair- 350-400 degrees
- medium density, or colored hair- 300-350 degrees
- fine, lightened, or dry hair- 250-300 degrees
- damaged hair- no heat
4.Keep heat tool moving throughout hair as much as possible. Do not let the tool sit idol for more than 4-5 seconds. Imagine letting an iron sit on clothes for long periods of time, it will burn/damage the clothes, so you keep the iron moving back and forth. In the video, the girl suggested “20 seconds or more.” Clearly, that was too long.
5.Additional tips- With the correct hair products, brushes, and blow-drying technique, some hair types can get sleek and smooth with out a flat iron. You may be damaging your hair with heat unnecessarily. Ask your stylist if you have the right hair texture. Additionally, embracing your natural texture regularly keeps hair healthier so that heat styling isn’t as risky. Healthy hair is next to goddess hair.

Sadly, the fun of spending endless days in the sun and salt water over summer causes damage to your luscious locks. When salt dries it becomes crystalline. As the crystals dry it actually draws moisture from the hair. Pretty bazaar, right? For a while, that “beachy” texture is nice, but perpetual exposure tends to create lackluster hair and color fading. In addition, over exposure to UV rays of the sun will cause weak, brittle hair. This lends a hand in the “split end” department.
In addition, the colder months suck the moisture from your hair. This creates dry, brittle hair and ultimately, split ends and frizz! Bleh. If you haven’t properly treated your hair from summer, and we are now hitting the damaging winter months, then it’s time to get your hair protected! Per usual, we suggest only heat styling on occasion and getting your routine trims every 4-5 or 6-8 weeks (depending on your hair goals), but we also have some amazing remedies that will really nourish your hair, and keep it protected all winter long!

We offer a treatment service to revamp and protect your hair at the salon. We start by cleansing the scalp with a wonderful scalp massage which promotes healthier hair growth by encouraging circulation to the scalp. Then, we open the hair cuticle by wrapping the hair in a warm towel to soak while the treatment does its magic! By opening the cuticle, the treatment masque is able to deeply penetrate into the hair. We rinse using a cooler water temperature which closes the hair cuticle to lock in the protein. Before your blow-dry, we will saturate the hair with daily leave-in conditioner to add weightless moisture for a silkier texture. These products also nourish with minerals and vitamin B5 which is the most essential active ingredient in hair care.
After your service, you hair will be full of shine, vitality, and ready to take on the cooler months! You can pair your service with a relaxing extended massage for relaxation and to de-stress from holiday madness! It also includes a hand and upper arm massage as well as pressure points to relieve tension. Or, you might enjoy a brow designing service or mini up-do for a Christmas party after your blow-dry!

So, you’ve heard us mention AMERICAN WAVE.. but what exactly is it??
Learn from the creators who have been dedicated for 12 months to perfect the waving solution used during the service:
The American Wave System offers the permanent creation of wave and curl, volume and fullness, for clients who crave the new world of modern, multi-textured styles. For anyone that wants a trendy beach wave, more volume or fullness, or expanded wave and curl patters, this service is your perfect choice.
Only certified stylists have access to American Wave products, soft tools, and techniques. While at ARROJO EXPO in NY this past year, stylist Charlie Anne, was a part of some of the first certified for this revolutionary waving system.
American Wave uses ionic technology without dryness, damage, off-putting smells, or styling restrictions. The point of difference is the ammonia and thio free waving solution. Being positively charged, the solution attracts to the negatively charged hair shaft and leaves the hair damage-free. Traditional perms are negatively charged which repels the thio ingredient. Because of this, thio-based perms aggressively open the hair shaft resulting in damage of the hair cuticle.

Before the service begins, your stylist will consult with you to create your own unique soft tool design wrap and new haircut to enhance the wave. After the service you’ll receive ARROJO Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner as well as ARROJO Curl Enhancer or Control to maintain your hair at home. Built in with a new haircut and products to sustain your new waves, the American Wave system truly is the wave service of the future!
Creative wave wraps include:
The Beach Wave: Marry straight and wavy textures and create the sexy, tousled beach waves that are the zeitgeist of fashion, trend, and style. Using American Wave and a vertical drag wrap soft tool technique, this service is great for trend-conscious clients.
The Style Support Technique: Add volume and texture to hair that lacks life and vitality by creating a resilient consistent wave that is perfect style support for blow-dries and hot-tools. Using a classic soft tool wrapping technique in alliance with American Wave, this is brilliant for clients with very straight hair.
