I made this video to ask one simple question:
Would You Heat Train Your Natural Hair?
Before we get into that I suppose I should define “heat training” huh?
Some people choose to permanently loosen the texture of their natural hair by systematically using heat on their hair. Depending on the temperature or with repetitive use, heat can fuse the outer layer of cuticle on each strand of hair making it lay flatter and therefore loosening the curl pattern.
If you did not intend this texture change to occur we in the natural hair community call it “heat damage” but if you did in tend for it to occur we call it “heat traning”
So, would you ever use heat to intentionally loosen the texture of your natural hair?
Watch the video if you’re curious to know my answer and let me know yours in the comments below.
