That should be common sense, but you would be surprised how many people do it anyway.

Tips: Considering Using Less Styling Tools
You probably think that we are crazy for saying that, but we are only looking after the health of your hair. You are already damaging your hair by going blonde in the first place and using hot irons and curling irons frequently are only going to make it worse.
If you already have light hair, then going blonde won’t be a big deal. But if you are going from dark to light, then that’s going to take its toll on your hair. It would be highly recommended to take a break on the styling tools or at least try to use them less often. If you are using them, try to keep the tools at a low temperature to minimize any damage it’s going to cause.
