Best Hair-Protectant Sprays to Defy Hot Heat Tools

Heat-styling tools can be toxic to our strands, so while hair looks healthy in the short-term, it significantly suffers in the long-term. Using heat upwards of 450-degrees not only dries out hair, but after years of use, can make hair brittle and dull — split ends included.

Before the blow-drying, straightening, or curling begins, spritz these heat-protection sprays from root to tip. They’re packed with ingredients to nix frizz and hydrate strands, essentially forming a barrier over your hair once it comes into contact with heat. Say bye to thermal damage and hello to Beyoncé hair goals with these heat-protection sprays.
