The 6 heat protectant sprays to transform your locks from frazzled to fabulous
If there’s one hair care product we'd encourage you to use on a daily basis, it’s heat protectant spray. Straightening, curling or using another heated styler without protecting your locks is terrible for your hair. Many hair styling devices reach heats of 250 degrees and aren’t advanced enough to adapt if your hair's dangerously overheating. The job of protecting your barnet is up to you and you alone, so don’t get caught frazzled, burnt and with visible split ends.
Many of the Sephora hair heat protection products are expert multitaskers. As well as shielding your locks from excessive temperatures, they double up as hydrating hair styling creams and hair-thickening spritzes. Many of them are creamy and smoothing in an effort to expertly reduce frizz. With so many benefits, you’d be mad to go without. We’ve put together a handy guide to the 6 hair heat protection products you can’t live without. Which will you choose?
