Absolutely. It's a necessity for me since I have to use the highest heat possible.

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?

Yes. Hair protectant gives the hair a more shinier look and keeps it soft and frizz free!

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.

Heat protectant is a must! Keeps hair smooth, prevents breakage, and adds additional shine. I have been using L'oréal Sleek It for 2 years now and highly recommend.

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

You're supposed to use it on the piece of hair right before you straighten/curl it.

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.

I know I should but I don't. I've found that since I no longer color my hair it's a lot healthier and I don't have to use protectant as much.

I use it sometimes, but not all the time bc if you have a flat iron with ceramic plates it is not going to damage your hair as much.

Yes you should always use a heat protectant on your hair to prevent damage. Also for the ladies who wear human hair extensions a heating protectant should also be used to preserve the extensions.

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.

Always. It takes just seconds to apply and is always a good idea to protect your hair from damaging heat. Got2be makes a really nice, good smelling, cruelty-free, inexpensive one.
