I have recently stopped getting my hair blow dried at salons because unfortunately none of the salons where I live uses a heat protectant before applying heat to the hair. As unbelievable as it may sound, these are all popular and well-established salons that are well stocked with all kinds of hair products ranging from serums to mousses, yet they either skip or are unaware of the benefits of heat protectant sprays.
In India, heat protectant sprays have made their entry into the market quite recently even though they are one of the most important hair products for healthy hair in my opinion. In an ideal world we would not subject our hair to any sort of heat, be it blow drying, straightening or even hot water baths, the reality, however, is that there are several occasions when we cannot wait for our hair to air dry or need to tame our mane with the aid of styling tools. A heat protectant is your best buddy if you find yourself in such situations from time to time. They not only protect the hair from the damage caused by high temperatures but also improve the efficacy of the styling tool and prevent frizziness.
I have been using the Toni & Guy Heat Protection Mist for over a month now and it has made a huge difference to the look and feel of my hair. The nozzle gives out a fine mist which I spray on to towel dried moist hair and then spread out with a wide toothed comb before blow drying my hair. My blow dries look much more professional when I use this product and have a sleek finish; it also has a soft fragrance that lingers on in my hair for up to 3 days. I have also used this spray on dry hair before straightening and am happy to report that my hair held the style for much longer as compared to when I straighten without using this product. It prevents my hair from succumbing to any kinds of frizziness or dryness that I usually suffer from, especially at the ends. The product claims to provide heat protection from temperatures up to 230 degrees Celsius and so should work fine with most styling tools.
I also love that it is quite affordable, priced at INR 750 for a 150 ml bottle (UK price is £6.39 for the same). There are usually some fabulous discounts and deals on this product as well (I purchased mine for 30% off from Nykaa). Toni & Guy Heat Protection Mist is a great option for all those on the lookout for a good heat protectant, particularly those with fine, frizzy hair and rough ends. I am looking forward to trying out more products from this brand in the future!
