There are many women with natural human hair who still desire to have straight hair. They choose heat-trained hair. Many people are looking for a healthy option. The thermal training process allows women to have longer, straighter hairstyles without using harmful chemicals.

What is fever training?

Thermal training is a repetitive process that uses heat to straighten natural hair, with the goal of creating less texture over time. Unlike natural or relaxed hair that can be damaged, heat-trained hair is often referred to as “controllable damage.” The heat on the hair is a process of setting the heat at a moderate temperature over a period of time. Under the constant high temperature, the protein in the hair is weakened and begins to decompose. This makes it difficult for your hair to return to its original curling pattern.

To give you a clear understanding of how thermal training works, imagine a pair of crumpled pants that will not disappear no matter how many times you wash them. It’s not that the pants are damaged, but the high temperature has changed the genetic structure of the fabric. This is the principle of thermal training. Just like your muscles have memories, your hair also has memories.

Is heat training healthy for hair?

Heat-trained hair is a kind of damaged hair because the protein connection in the hair is destroyed and cannot be restored to its original state. Your hair can have a healthy appearance, depending on how often you heat your hair and how you take care of your natural hair. When performing heat training, it is not necessary to use high calories or pass the same set of hair multiple times. The repeated heating process will straighten your hair without “damaging unhealthy hair”.

How to care for hot hair?

To have healthy hair after thermal training, you must regularly moisturize with conditioner or other products that can penetrate into your hair. Stay away from sulphate shampoos, as they will take away the natural oils from your hair and are very pungent.

When choosing how often to heat natural hair, consider your hairstyle, texture, porosity, color, and overall health. If your hair becomes brittle, dry, and prone to fall out, keep the frequency of heat training to a minimum. Everyone’s hairstyle is different, and calories affect people in many ways.

What are the possible benefits of hot hair?

1. Reduce knots in the hair

For many people, a lot of curls/rolls/knots make combing hair a tedious job. Impatient combing can cause serious damage to your hair. Perm can straighten hair and reduce knots.

2. Length save

“Appropriate” thermal training can theoretically help some normal people reach longer lengths, because knots and injury levels are correspondingly reduced.

3. Increase diversity…

Another benefit of heat training is that it can increase diversity. You can try straight hair for a short time. At the same time, the hair can retain the memory, so that the curl can be restored.

Will thermal training hinder hair growth?

It is difficult to predict whether thermal training will affect your hair growth. Some people’s hair can withstand a lot of damage without breaking. Others will experience a period of time in the hot combing process. The types of hair are much more diverse than we think, and there is no one-size-fits-all method to safely straighten your hair.

Generally speaking, the best way to predict whether you will be injured during heat training is to carefully consider how your hair has reacted to heat in the past. For example, if you know that you lost your hair due to heat in the past (not because you left the curling irons on your hair for 5 minutes), you probably shouldn’t choose heat training. On the other hand, if you used to straighten your hair once a week and your hair has never been broken, you may have to start hot training.

If you want to try hot training but don’t want to risk losing length, you can try to straighten the hair that has fallen out. This is not a perfect approximation, but you can see whether a certain temperature makes your hair particularly fragile.

Should I do hair heat training?

The answer to this question depends on what you want from your hair, how much potential damage you are willing to take, and how much time you want to spend to take care of your hair.

Thermal training will not change your hair from curly to straight hair, which is great if you decide to spend a few days in a heat-free environment. This makes thermal training more suitable for those who do not want to keep their hair straight permanently. Hot exercise may make your curls looser than before, but it will certainly not prevent your hair from curling up in the water.

The important message to remember is that other people’s hair is not yours. Never believe that what you see on YouTube is good for your hair. Trust the message of your hair.
