Heat: Yay or Nay?

Where do you stand with the great heat debate? Are you for it or against?

Personally, I prefer not to use heat of any kind on my hair. I'm not knocking those that do but prior to me straightening my hair last month, the last time I blow dryer touched my strands was about 5 years ago and I haven't look back since. Even as a broke college student, I came to love air drying my hair. I was the queen of wraps and would break out the flat iron the next day to "bump" my ends.  Heat is great for deep conditioning and can be used in moderation if you want to quickly dry your hair. The most important thing is to remember is to apply a heat protectant first.

I was very anti heat for the first 2 years of my natural journey, hadn't touched a blow dryer or flat iron. then....I kept noticing epic blow outs and decided to do one. then...was offered the brazilian keratin for free so i let them do that too, which required flat ironing and i ended up liking it too. so heat hasn't been too bad to me, just have to use heat protectant. hair isn't damaged thank goodness, so i'll still use every now and again.
