Last time I wrote about The Body Shop Luxury Facial Flannel, something I use a lot but never mentioned here. I dug into my stash to see if I was missing something else and I had a eureka moment. Ahh!! How have I not talked about my heat protection spray?
I found this stashed on the shelves of my local grocery store and decided to buy it. This seemed very similar to the Tressemé Heat Protection spray. I have tried it only once from a friend who got it from Dubai very recently. When I bought the Sunsilk keratinology heat protection spray, I had only heard of the Tressemé one and seen a lot of beauty gurus on youtube using it. The packaging and aesthetics of the Sunsilk one is very similar to that of Tressemé's heat protection spray.
I like to spray this on each section of hair separated to straighten or curl, starting from my ear and till the end. I like to use this before applying any direct heat into my hair, i.e. a flat iron or a curler. You could also use this before you blow dry, or even if you aren't heat styling to de-frizz and protect your hair from sun damage. I use the Kerastase Nectar Thermique before blow drying.
I use heat tools only if it's absolutely necessary. I am really impressed with this product and I think it does exactly what it's supposed to do. If you use heat tools very frequently, no matter how much protection you take, you will eventually get split ends and nothing but a trim will remove them, but if you use them rarely with heat protection you can prevent a lot of heat damage. My hair feels very silky once I spray this on and it helps the flat iron glide on very smoothly. It doesn't make my hair crunchy or rough like some heat protection gels I have used before.
The spray nozzle helps in spreading the serum evenly all over my hair, and I do use a comb to help coat all the hair with it and wait for at least 30 seconds before I use any heat tool. However, the spray nozzle of the first bottle stopped working and I still had half of the product inside. I had to repurchase a new one just for the nozzle, but thankfully this one hasn't had any problems yet.
The best part about this product is that that it is only for Rs 400 and available almost in every departmental stores. If you use heat tools very frequently, without any protection then I would highly recommend spraying this before you apply any heat. Since, it is very affordable and will save your hair in the long run, you should give this one a go.
Do you use any heat protectant before heat styling?
