In the same way, to obtain a "Hollywood star" effect after the Supreme Glossy treatment, it is also possible to use an iron or a straightener to create great waves and curls.
When I use the Hot Honey Care system, do I have to apply heat protection products to the hair in combination with the hairdryer or immediately before using a straightener or curling iron?
Both Hot Honey Care treatments contain protective products, therefore, when using the Hot Honey Care system, it is not necessary to use additional heat protective agents.
