Every now and then you may get the itch to switch up your look by flat ironing your hair. Now that cooler weather is here and straightened styles have more likelihood of lasting, it’s important to choose a heat protectant that will compliment your hair’s texture and aid in giving your style the shine and hold it needs to withstand the elements. The next time you decide to straighten your hair, try one of these heat protectants and let us know how it works for you.
When using a heat protectant on natural hair, it is best to apply it BEFORE blowdrying the hair. What this does is ensure that the product is infused into the hair strand before the flat ironing process. You can apply the product again before flat ironing but it isn’t necessary, as the product has already been absorbed by the hair.
This product is at an excellent price point for all it does: enhances the hair’s flexibility, generates shine and softness, provides long-lasting hold, and prevents frizz while protecting the hair from heat and humidity.
#2. John Frieda Frizz Collection Frizz Ease Heat Defeat Protective Styling Spray.
This spray helps prevent flyaways and frizz and will keep your strands from going limp, even on hot and humid days.
#3. OGX Brazilian Keratin Therapy Flat Iron Spray.
This flat iron spray is perfect for the hair because it has keratin, a necessary protein for the hair that helps strengthen it in preparation for applying heat.
#4. Giovanni Hair Care 2 Chic Flat Iron Styling Mist with Brazilian Keratin and Argan Oil.
This product both strengthens the hair and seals in moisture with argan oil, an oil that makes the hair shiny, brilliant, and easier to manage.
I love this product because it does far more than just protect your hair from heat. It also conditions, detangles, adds shine, tames frizz, seals in moisture, helps prevent split ends, and gives your natural hair silkiness and body. Sounds like a miracle worker to me!
Enjoy your style but remember that no matter how much heat protection you apply, frizz happens! Embrace it- it’s all apart of being natural!
