QHow Often Can I Flat Iron Afro Hair?

AThe answer to how often you can safely flat iron afro hair depends a great deal on what condition your hair is in. If your tresses are in any way excessively dry, under-conditioned, damaged or in any other less-than-healthy state, flat ironing won't help, and will likely make things worse. If, on the other hand, you're very good about pampering your mane, you can work out a flat iron schedule for you.
It's generally recommended that heat styling be done no more than once per week. Hair should always be freshly shampooed, conditioned and completely dry before thermal styling. Flat ironing dirty hair will only "cook" soil in and will lead to damage. Even on a once-per-week regimen, heat styling can still be bad for your tresses.
