It’s the moment we all dread when our beloved locks are set against their enemy, and the irons are sanctioned to the back to the wardrobe. After a little reckless use, your ends are frazzled and the only medication your hairdresser can prescribe is a cold turkey withdrawal.

Especially when your frizzy curls can barely contain themselves with the hair straighteners let alone without them.

So what do you do? Go into hiding until your long suffering hair has made it’s recovery? Unfortunately that might seem a little unreasonable to your boss so we know it’s out of the question. Instead we’ve compiled a survival guide for life without the flat irons.
