American Academy of Dermatology: Dermatologists Warn Ceramic Flat Irons Could Damage Hair and Lead to Hair Breakage
Date:7/30/2008

will look better in the long run.

Dr. Mirmirani added that for many women and young girls, flat irons are not the only source of hair damage. "Improper hair care is a common cause of hair loss, and excessive or improper use of devices, such as flat irons, is only one piece of the puzzle," she said. "In fact, many of the styling products that women routinely use -- including hair dyes, perms and relaxers -- can all cause hair breakage. Pairing these products with the regular use of a flat iron to straighten hair could exacerbate hair breakage and cause lasting damage if left untreated."

Treatment of damaged or broken hair includes avoiding any heat or chemicals, cutting the damaged hair, and minimizing friction to the hair. Because it does not affect normal hair growth, most hair loss from breakage is temporary. Once hair is sufficiently damaged, it may take up to two years to be fully repaired. For successful diagnosis and treatment of hair damage, including hair loss, see your dermatologist.
