HOW DOES HAIR HEAT PROTECTANT SPRAY WORK

Whether you start every morning with a blowout or just reach for a hot tool when the mood strikes, you know you should always use heat protectant to protect your strands. But how does heat protectant work, anyway? Is it really worth it, or is it just an unnecessary addition to your already full bathroom counter? Short answer: it’s definitely worth it. Long answer: keep reading to see how heat protectants work, and why they’re so important for the health of your hair.

What’s the damage?

You know when you smell hair burning something’s gone wrong, but what about when you’re on a low setting, quickly running an iron through your hair? Is it that bad? The truth is, any amount of heat can damage your hair:

Keratin proteins break down, meaning less strength and elasticity in your strands and the cuticle frays, meaning more frizz and drying time. And if there’s any moisture on your hair, you’ll cook your strands with steam, which can destroy your hair’s structure. That’s why you should never use a curling iron or straightening iron on damp or wet hair.

Does heat protection work?

Short answer: yes. While heat protection sprays can’t mitigate 100% of damage, they can help protect your strands from the worst of it. The ingredients in heat protection sprays slow down heat conduction and help distribute the heat evenly, so you’re not blasting one area with a ton of heat.

A good heat protectant will also moisturize the cuticle to help seal it and prevent moisture loss, reducing the amount of breakage and frizz that can occur.

Total Miracle Heat Protecting Spray

So, if you’re not looking to put down the hot tools anytime soon – and we don’t blame you – make sure you have a good heat protectant on hand. Our Aussie Total Miracle Heat Protecting Spray protects hair from the high heat of styling tools to keep the stress out of your hair routine.
