We have something new arriving on paternbeauty.com on 9/12. In the meantime, listen to our newest playlist to guess the drop.
Listening to this playlist on wash day? Are you using heat or a blow dryer? Navigating heat styling can be tricky. Curly, coily, & tight-textured patterns can be more vulnerable & susceptible to breakage than other hair types. With this in mind, many precautions are taken in preparation for styling using heat tools. It is possible to make heat styling a part of your hair regimen so long as you use heat properly & in moderation. We encourage you to care for your hair before, during & after using heat to protect your Pattern.
Start Off Strong
One of the most essential parts of heat styling is the preparation. Strengthen your hair before applying heat to help prevent severe damage. Protein-rich pre-shampoos & deep conditioners can help strengthen your hair. PATTERN’s Treatment Mask, for example, is formulated with strengthening ingredients like Rice Water Protein; best for those wanting to restore dry or damaged hair. Strong & healthy strands are less likely to suffer from damage after heat styling than weak or brittle strands.
Knowing the state of your hair’s health helps you cater to your strands & prevent heat damage. When you are aware of the state of your curls, you can provide them with the proper nourishment before styling for the best results. Want help evaluating the state of your curls?

Are You Using Curl-Conscious Tools?
Heat protectant is another important step that is used in preparation for heat styling. A few sprays of PATTERN’S non-greasy, lightweight Heat Protectant will equip your hair with the protection it needs for direct contact with heat. This simple step will not only help protect your hair from heat damage but also add shine to your completed look.
Last but not least, use curl-conscious tools! The heat styling tools that you utilize can make or break the elasticity of your curls. For those using heat at home without the assistance of a professional, opt for a heat tool like The PATTERN Blow Dryer that was designed with the needs of your curls in mind.
Heat Can Be Your Friend
In many ways, using heat when styling can be beneficial to maintaining natural hair. Heat styling only becomes harmful when done carelessly & in excess. PATTERN has curated an extensive catalog that will equip you with the perfect formulas to support your strands. Our collection includes award-winning options formulated to tend to your coils throughout the heat styling process.
