Why You Need A Heat Protect Spray & The Ones We Love Best
Regular use of hot tools such as straighteners, curlers / tongs and don’t forget dryers will lead to hair issues and sometimes disasters – who wants singed ends?
We’re all sometimes pushed for time but a quick spray of the right product will go a long way to providing your hair with the protection you need.
What Damage Can Hot Tools Do?
If you are using hot tools regularly you may find:
Your hair will become dry which can lead to frizziness and unmanageable hair.
Your hair will become damaged and the integrity of your hair will be effected – this can become a problem if you are also colouring your hair as when the internal structure is damaged your colour may not take as well.
Your hair may also notice split end damaged if you do not use a heat protect spray which will affect the overall look of your style and feeling of hair well being.
How Do Heat Protect Sprays Work?
So we’ve established that we need a good heat protect spray, but how does it actually work?
A heat protect spray provides a barrier between your hair and the hot tool you are using. The heat that is needed to create your style is still applied, the barrier means it does not damage the hair at the same time – simple!
A good quality spray will also have additional benefits such as providing smoothness or softness, UV Protection and other TLC to your hair.
