Why this tip? Excessive heat to the hair contributes to split ends, frizz and breakage. Heat damages the hair by stripping the strands making them thin, dry, and brittle which in turn leads to split ends and breakage. If you must straighten or curl your hair, using a more gentle method like hair wrapping or rollers is a great alternative. In addition, air drying your hair or drying your hair with a dryer on the lowest heat setting or cool setting works just as well.
