Turn Up The Heat This Valentine’s Day: Everything You Need To Know About Heat Protectant Products

Heat protectant products can often get overlooked if you don’t know the reasons behind using them. After all, it is hard to believe how much protection a spray or cream can offer your hair when dealing with the highest heat on your hair straighteners. But if you crave the sleek finish, your straighteners achieve. Then you need to get clued up on what heat protectant products do for your locks.

TikTok Heat Protection Experiment

We thought we would dive straight in with the hard facts. You may have already seen on Tiktok, over the past few weeks, hairstylists putting heat protectant on bread. Now, we know this sounds crazy but stay with us. The Tiktok trend involves hairstylists covering one slice of bread with their choice of heat protection and putting it into the toaster. Along with another slice of bread without any heat protection. When the bread comes out of the toaster, you can clearly see that the piece of bread that had the heat protectant product is hardly toasted. Therefore, the bread has been protected from the heat of the toaster.Β

Why Should I Use A Heat Protectant Product?

So, if the Tiktok experiment hasn’t got you convinced it is time for us to change your mind by explaining what happens to your strands when you don’t use a form of heat protection. The heat from your styling tools can wreak havoc upon your locks. Some of the telltale signs of heat damage are split ends, snapped strands and dry hair. When weighing up the positives of using a heat protectant product a way to think about it is that you wouldn’t sit directly in the sun without wearing SPF. Therefore, the same should apply to your hair when exposed to heat.

Factors To Consider When Buying A Heat Protectant Product

Pat yourself on the back if you are still reading, because that means you are considering investing in a heat protection product. Remember, healthy hair is always in.

Like with all hair care products, there is a huge variety of heat protectant products on the market for you to choose from. So we have narrowed down the top 3 things you need to consider when buying one.

  • Make sure that you choose a product that can defend against the temperatures of your favourite styling tools. The temperature the product can defend against should be on the back of the bottle, along with the instructions.
  • Choose a product that suits your lifestyle. If you are always in a rush and on the go, then a spray product would be easier and more convenient than a cream or serum.
  • Many heat protectant products also perform other jobs such as easing frizz, adding shine and nourishing locks. Be sure to select one that benefits your hair in other ways, as well as protecting it from heat damage.
