DO YOU REALLY NEED A HEAT PROTECTANT SPRAY?
When you’re on a journey to healthier locks, you’ll probably get to a point where you’d rather cut down on products to keep the costs low and your morning routine minimal. And unless you’re obsessed with hair products like we are, there’s no reason that your hair routine should take more than 20 minutes on a daily basis.
But when it comes to the elimination process, make sure that you’re keeping the products that actually make a difference and removing the ones that aren’t as necessary. How do you figure that out? Well, we got you!
If you get to your heat protectant spray or cream and are considering tossing it out, we highly recommend reconsidering. Here’s everything you need to know about how your heat protectant spray can save your hair from serious damage!
WHAT DOES A HEAT PROTECTANT SPRAY DO?
Essentially, heat protectant products create a strong barrier between your hair and any form of heat. Whether it’s heat from UV rays, a blow dryer, or a flat iron, the heat protectant ensures that even temperatures up to 450 degrees won’t cause any damage to your strands!
While the concept of a heat protectant is to protect, not all products are created equal. In fact, some products can do more damage than good if they contain harsh ingredients. Our Argan Oil Heat Protectant has a weightless formula, filled with clean ingredients that work for your hair, not against it!
does it make a difference?
Put simply, yes! Especially if you are straightening or curling your hair on a daily basis, a heat protectant spray will make a world of a difference. Without creating a barrier, running hot temperatures through your hair can create tiny holes in the strands, leading to breakage.
If you had fried, frizzy hair in high school, then you know the damage that hot tools can create! Even if you keep it simple by blow drying and calling it a day, protecting your hair from heat is still an essential part of your routine since any kind of hot tool can damage the strands.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A HEAT PROTECTANT?
Since applying heat directly to the hair damages the moisture barrier, it’s important to find a protectant that adds moisture back into your hair. The Argan Oil Heat Protectant Spray is infused with hydrating ingredients like argan oil, sunflower seed oil, and aloe leaf juice to ensure your hair stays soft and silky, even with the use of hot tools.
With high levels of keratin, your hair is also getting a daily dose of protein to rebuild, repair, and restore after any kind of heat damage. Keratin works great to smooth out the hair, making it easier to work with during the styling process!
That extra step in your hair care routine might seem pointless in the moment, but the invisible shield that a heat protectant offers is the key to reducing damage! If your hair isn’t damaged at all, use a heat protectant to keep your hair healthy and youthful. And if it has already taken a beating from styling, neglect, or color treatments, make sure to be extra loving with your hair by protecting it at all costs!
