How To Heat Style Colour-Treated Hair

Colour-treated hair, especially in a lighter or different coloured hue, can be susceptible to heat. Common culprits include the sun, your hair dryer and your favourite curling iron or hair straightener.  

Heat styling can do a number on colour-treated hair, making it dull and prematurely fading your hair colour.

With a few precautions, paired with your favourite Belisa by Lunata cordless hair tool, look forward to fewer salon visits and longer stretches where you can enjoy your chosen hue.


It’s good practice to heat style with a heat protectant spray or serum, especially if your hair is dry or coloured. Both hair types are susceptible to damage, including snapping and split ends.


Prolong your colour with a heat-efficient hair styling tool. Look for tools that can conduct heat well and can adjust to temperatures that will suit your hair type.

The Belisa by Lunata cordless hair tools are all heat efficient. The titanium barrels in the Belisa Cordless Curling Wand and Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip heat style with a range of 200-400ºF and heat is even along the barrel, making for easy and even styling!

Control the temperature with easily adjustable buttons and check you’ve got the right temperature for your hair with the digital LCD screen nearby. A personalized temperature will eliminate the need for multi-pass styling and minimize any heat damage.

The Belisa Cordless Flat Iron also has titanium plates that will quickly heat up and efficiently style hair into curls, waves or a sleek pane of straight hair.


Single-pass hairstyling is made possible with a heat-efficient tool, but take it a step further with these tips!

To make single-pass styling foolproof, adjust the width of your sections. Creating more sections or using the full barrel length of the Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip or Belisa Cordless Curling Wand are options to consider depending on what curl style you’re going for.

Both tools can work on cordless mode for up to 35 minutes–plenty of time to style hair of all lengths!


Keep curls from falling flat once you’ve finished styling. Use your hands to cradle them once the sections are off the barrel and, optionally, pin them back with hair clips to your scalp and wait for them to cool.

To set your curls, use hair clips to secure your curls to your head while they cool and go in with hairspray to finish.

Don’t let curls fall flat! Use the Belisa Cordless Curling Wand or Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip to curl hair into the desired style. Unwind hair gently and cradle it in your hands.


Hairspray is essential – find one that works for colour-treated hair and always apply after styling!

The Belisa by Lunata cordless hair stylers are an excellent choice, whether you have coloured hair or don’t! Find your perfect one on our website and check them out in action on TikTok.
