If you own any type of heat styling tool, you need a good heat protectant to protect your curls. Even if you don’t apply heat to your hair often, just straightening or curling your hair consistently for a week could damage your ends and hurt your curls (especially if your hair is not trained to withstand it). Even though it will not stop heat damage from happening, it will protect against the harsh elements of heat styling. You can find heat protection products, like this one from OGX, for under $10; your favorite hair company probably sells one of its own!
9. Fine Tooth Comb
Are you a fan of braids, twists, and other fun styles? If so, you may need a fine tooth comb. Parting is essential for a clean, neat look and can elevate a simple hairdo to a professional-looking style. Plus, fine tooth combs are great for detangling nasty knots stuck in the hair. You can find a fine tooth comb in your favorite color at your local beauty supply store anywhere from 99¢ to $1.50.
