Heat Shields prevent painful burn injuries from hot appliances and act as a bandage to protect prior cuts or burns. They are latex-free, heat, water and cut resistant. They stretch and stay snug all day and they are machine washable. The finger tips are sewn for added protection. Heat Shields are worn on the thumb and index finger on the opposite hand holding the tool. Slide the thumb and index finger shield to the base of the finger with the extended side on the palm side of the hand. When sectioning hair with flat irons, use thumb shield on the index finger and the index shield on the middle finger. Heat Shields can be interchangeable. Properly sanitize after use. They can be washed multiple times without losing elasticity. See Heat Shields in action here.
