Thermal cutting. Like an excellent journalist, I didn’t really know what this (or thermal scissors) properly were before I plonked down in the stylists chair, though I knew it was a bit of a New York trend last year. Anyway – here’s the lowdown on what to expect….
WTF IS THERMAL CUTTING?
Well, basically, you have your hair cut with these ‘hot’ scissors – they’re the Jaguar TC ThermoCut System should you give a fuck. When your hair is cut with regular scissors that leaves the cuticle open and can lead to damage and dryness (because moisturise/pollution etc can all get into the shaft.). These thermal scissors – in theory – warm the keratin protein in the hair, which seals the ends of the hair when it’s cut and that should ward off split ends and subsequent breakage. It also traps in moisture apparently! View Post
