My hair is naturally curly and like a lion's mane when left in it's natural state. I can't stand it and it gets hot and tangles very easily. Thus, I always straighten my hair after showering. I've been doing this for years and I can't even count the times I've accidentally burned my hand or fingers. My best straightener is a Chi that reaches up to 400 degrees and my hair is always too hot to handle for a minute after running it through. I found this nifty little heat resistant glove by ISA Professionals, and I just couldn't wait to try it out!
While I straighten my hair, I usually like to grab my hair to make sure it stays straight as it cools instead of curling on my shoulders. I usually have to gingerly grasp it within a few seconds and move my hand quickly before my hair burns it. With this glove, I didn't even feel any heat when I grabbed my hair. It was little hard to feel my hair through the glove, but to not get burned was totally worth it. I am very impressed with this heat resistant glove, and I'll be using it every time I straighten my hair from now on!
