Heart Bangs Hair is a beauty trend in South Korea. With a curling iron and hairspray, it is styled to last the day. But will the hairspray cause acne?
These days, the trend it seems is to wear your heart in your hair. Now before you get even more confused and start pulling on your luscious locks – we’re talking about beauty style that is.
To be factual, it’s not clear how and when this phenomenon started but most roads seem to lead to South Korea, which comes as no surprise.
Heart Bangs: How to Style the Heart Bangs Hair?
The Koreans call it the ‘Hateu Aapmuhri’ or ‘Heart Bangs Hair’. This style is achieved by using a curling iron to curl the fringe inwards and the look is kept in place by applying a generous, some would even say copious, amount of hairspray.
Sounds simple enough but that’s when the real problem starts for many and we’re not talking about their hair spraying or curling technique.
Heart Bangs: What’s in a Hairspray?
Hairsprays contain polymers and solvents – where the former acts like glue and the latter is used to dissolve the ingredients into a solution. Our skin being the largest organ is also one of the most sensitive and when it comes into contact with chemicals, the reaction can, at times, be perilous.
One of the most common is inflammatory skin leading to acne breakouts. The Heart Bangs Hair might just cause you acne.
Contrary to popular belief, acne breakouts is not a problem that’s only confined to teenagers on the verge of puberty. It can occur well into adulthood and while the causes may vary, which includes the heavy reliance on products like makeup and hairspray, the negative impact is all too familiar and similar.
There are skincare regimes that can help prevent breakouts but what about for those who are already afflicted?
