You need the right product to prep your hair for heat styling. At Unwritten Hair, we have the perfect solution for you - Hey Genie, our define and styling cream. This product is a must-have in your haircare arsenal, especially if you love heat styling. Its unique formula provides thermal protection, meaning it protects your hair from heat damage caused by styling tools like flat irons and curling wands.

Here’s how you can prep your hair for heat styling like a pro:

Step 1: Start with Clean Hair

Before you start heat-styling your hair, ensure that it’s clean. Dirty hair contains oils and dirt that can damage your hair when exposed to heat. Use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of any buildup and leave your hair feeling clean and refreshed.

Step 2: Apply Hey Genie

Once your hair is clean, apply a small amount of Hey Genie throughout your hair. This cream not only protects your hair from heat damage but also provides hold and definition. The cream’s lightweight formula won't weigh your hair down or make it feel greasy. Apply the cream from the mid-shaft to the ends of your hair, focusing on areas that are more prone to damage from heat styling tools.

Step 3: Comb through Your Hair

After applying Hey Genie, use a wide-tooth comb to distribute the product evenly throughout your hair. This ensures that every strand is protected from the heat, and the product is evenly distributed.

Step 4: Blow-dry Your Hair

Blow-dry your hair until it's completely dry. This not only helps the product penetrate your hair, but it also adds volume to your hair. Use a round brush while blow-drying to create a smooth and polished look.

Step 5: Section Your Hair

Now that your hair is prepped, it’s time to section it. Divide your hair into sections to make it easier to style. This also ensures that you don't miss any spots and that every strand is protected.

Step 6: Use the Right Heat Setting

Different heat settings are suitable for different hair types. If you have fine hair, use a lower heat setting, and for thick or coarse hair, use a higher heat setting. This prevents your hair from getting damaged while ensuring that it’s adequately styled.

Step 7: Protect Your Hair While Styling

As you style your hair, use a heat protectant spray in conjunction with Hey Genie. This adds an extra layer of protection and ensures that your hair is safeguarded from heat damage.

Step 8: Finish with a Hair Spray

Once you're done styling, finish off with a hair spray to set the style in place. A lightweight hairspray will add hold without making your hair feel crunchy or stiff.

Heat styling doesn't have to be the end of your hair growth goals. By using the right product and techniques, you can protect your hair while achieving your desired look. Hey Genie, our define and styling cream, is the perfect solution to prep your hair for heat styling. It provides thermal protection, hold, and definition without weighing your hair down. Follow the above steps to prep your hair like a pro hairdresser and achieve the perfect look.
