Hair + Heat from styling products = a mammoth battle ground. So, just like most battles are won with protection, your hair wars with heat are won with Heat protecting sprays. Ahhh! Cue the brain bubble burst: life makes sense! So, now that we are all aware that heat can be less damaging to our hair, let me educate you all on Heat Sprays.
There are so many heat protecting sprays on the market these days, you would be forgiven for not knowing which ones are going to be a winner. So, alas, I have put in the hard yards for you all, and tested out a butt load of sprays, to give you my top five.
Paul Mitchell ‘Hot off the Press’ Thermal Protection Spray
Hot off the press, this quirky bottle choose their battles wisely. Your straightener are no menace to this versatile spray. Shielding your locks from every good-hair day foe, including damage and humidity (every girls arch nemesis). Not only does it protect against the dreaded styling iron : no singe factor here: but, it also helps your hair to hold its style, and is quick-drying! Serious win for all hair kind with this baby.
Aveda Brilliant Damage Control
As you may know, I am a bit of a sucker for natural products. Sure, I don’t always use them, but I definitely am a big fan, and try to use them as much as possible. Whenever I am in need of getting back to nature, I ALWAYS turn to Aveda. So, it is just plain obvious that I am a super fan of their Heat Spray.
Using Black Tea, Calendula, Aloe and certified Organic Camomile, only goodness is going on your hair to protect it from the aggression that is ‘heat styling’. Sure, you may look at the price, and think: sheez. But trust me when I say: worth every penny and tree saved to make it. EVERY. PENNY!
John Frieda Frizz Ease Heat Defeat Protective Styling Spray
It could just be that the bottle reminds me of my sporting ‘hey days’, where spray bottling everyone with water was the equivalent to being the kid with lollies: coolness factor- pretty high! But, this John Frieda Frizz Ease Heat Defeat Protective Styling Spray literally gets me excited to use my hairdryer. Yes, admittedly strange, but you try and tell me it isn’t funky and doesn’t do wonders at safeguarding your locks from the monster that is heat! Oh! Almost forgot to add: it is jam packed full of goodies like Jojoba Oil, providing your strands, a hit of silkiness and hydration, so the heat doesn’t steal all its moisture.
Sebastian Professional Trilliant
Some days, my hair gets so bland, that I need that extra ‘something’ to make me feel a little special. Sure, having sleek, straight hair is fab, but what about that X-Factor? Well, Sebastian Professional Trilliant takes heat protection to the next level by adding the ‘shine factor’. Containing a shimmer complex designed to condition hair, provide thermal protection, whilst adding ultra-light body and a smooth shine finish. Hollywood hair in an instance!
