Why your hair might not need heat protection spray

I might have said in the past that I do not believe in heat-protecting spray, which is true. I think heat protection is the least of your worries. A regular trim and a good shampoo and conditioner combo are so much more helpful. On the other hand, I do ask myself:  what is the harm? Now it can be counterproductive, if a product makes your hair greasy, it makes you want to wash your hair more often. If it dries out your hair, you will more likely have split ends (or your hairdresser will tell you that you need a serious trim). My hair had been feeling a bit dry, mostly because I hadn’t been to the hairdresser for months and the weather went hot and cold every other week. Now I know my hair well enough to know how to take care of it.

So I worked hard at it, and it once again feels great. If you know your hair, you will understand what the product is doing to your hair. You will notice that suddenly you are washing your hair more often. Being aware of such things is what is going to make your hair journey so much better.  This product is great to me because of the cap, the product comes out like a mist which makes it easy to put over your whole head instead of just some spots. It also means you need less product, which is always a win.

I like products that have a natural scent, I think drying your hair out for a scent you will not be able to smell most of the time is not a great thing.  As in I don’t go around smelling my hair all the time, so having a nice smell in a hair product is not necessary to me. This product has added vitamin B5 which they claim regulates the moisture in the hair. Now I think the most important thing for strong hair is what you eat, not what you put into your hair. If you eat enough fruit and vegetables your hair will have the best chance of becoming healthy and strong. I do not believe that heat protection will heal or protect your hair fully. I have never noticed a major difference in using or not using it. If it works on your hair, that is amazing I then urge you to keep using the products that you love.

If you do not have the money to afford a heat-protecting spray, I do not believe you need it. I simply think that you should look at how the product reacts to your hair. For me, I have used multiple heat protectors which did not work with my hair. The one I am using now doesn’t harm my hair. Which to me makes it a good product. If a product doesn’t work for you, it does not work for you and you should stop using it. Give it to someone else or do something else with it. You and your hair deserve better. The spray I am using now cannot be found online, which is annoying. I I must admit that I do not care much for the ingredients list as I have not looked into that. I don’t use products like these every day and as my hair is quite healthy it doesn’t make a big difference to me.

The takeaway is, to get a trim over a product. As long as it doesn’t damage your hair you are doing good. And even if it doesn’t work necessarily, if it doesn’t harm your hair it does not matter.


Lots of love,
