If you use any kind of heat styling tool on your hair, then you know how important it is to use a heat protection spray. But what exactly is this magic product, and how does it work?
Let's Take A Closer Look
Heat-protecting sprays effectively reduce hair damage from heat styling and give your hair a healthy shine! Everyone should have one!
Most heat protection sprays contain silicone. When applied to the hair, this creates a barrier between the hair and the heat source. The silicone coats each strand of hair, protecting it from the damaging effects of the heat.
This barrier is a thermal protection that slows down heat conduction and distributes heat more evenly. This means the hair will heat up gradually rather than suddenly which will lessen the shock, and result in less hair damage.
Heat protecting products reduce water evaporation to reduce dryness, breakage, dullness, split ends, and other damage. The spray barrier also seals the cuticle to prevent hair from absorbing too much moisture from the air which causes frizz.
In addition to physical protection, most sprays include healthy, nourishing ingredients to keep your hair in top shape. And many heat protection sprays also contain UV filters to protect your hair from the sun's harmful rays.
So There You Have It!
Now you know what's in your heat protection spray and how it works to keep your hair healthy and looking great. Be sure to use one every time you style your hair with heat, and your locks will thank you for it!
