I don't use heat protectant very often because it always makes my hair feel greasy - every kind I've tried! Anyone have a recommendation of a heat protectant that won't make my hair greasy or leave a film?
The jury is out on this one. products can help coat your split ends and smooth hair, but in terms of actual protection, putting oil on your hair before blasting it with heat probably won't mean healthier end results.
I received Chi heat protectant with my flat iron. It does wonders for my hair. I never used heat protectants before and kicking myself for not using them. The difference in my hair was extremely noticeable.
You should never apply heat to your hair without protectant. I would even recommend a daily leave in conditioner just to protect your hair from everyday exposure to sun, water, and especially if you are a swimmer or color your hair
Definitely. What I've learned over the years is that it is best for me to use a cream or oil based heat protectant. I like to use products with argan oil or olive oil and I also like to either let them sit in my hair overnight or for a few hours before straightening my hair, since straightening hair when wet is not the best idea.
Yeaa i do! its super important to put on a heat protectant before using a heated product! Even though it won't 100% protect your hair from damage it definitely is better than not using a protectant at all.
I never use a heat protectant before and my hair its really bad, until i found out about it and now I'm using it and i see a difference in my hair!! so yes i do use a heat protectant before straightening or curling my hair.
