Heat damage is a widespread hair issue that can leave your locks looking lifeless and lifeless, or lead to breakage and split ends.

Heat protectants should not be seen as the solution; rather, they provide some level of protection and you still must take proper care in terms of shampooing and conditioning your locks regularly. In order to achieve maximum effectiveness from heat protectors, they should be used alongside other methods such as thermal spray or applying protective cream before you use heat styling tools.

As there are various heat protecting sprays and products available on the market, it’s essential to find one suitable to your hair and styling tool needs. If you frequently use blow dryers and straighteners, for instance, investing in higher quality heat protectants could provide extra protection.

Before using heat protectant on your hair, it’s always wise to perform an initial test. A quick and easy way of doing this is spraying some onto a piece of toast before placing in the oven to see how well your heat protectant stands up against high temperatures – this provides an invaluable way of finding products suitable for you!

As part of any regular hair styling session, it’s advisable to utilize a high-quality heat protector. However, light heat protectants such as Smooth Moves Anti Frizz Priming Cream might suffice when used only intermittently while more intensive products such as All Eyes On Me 10-in-1 Hair Perfector can provide additional heat protection when styling heavily with heated tools.
