Heat Protection Sprays: Which Ones Are Currently the Best?

Hair by Nicky Trynide

Beautiful and shiny is what most women wish their hair to be. But instead of making everything to keep the hair strong and shiny, they often mistreat it with hot styling tools. Truth is that the dryer, the straightener and the curling iron damage the strands considerably, but this doesn’t mean that such tools should be abandoned. If the hair is provided with strong protection against high temperatures, it should resist the heat. What heat protection products are worth testing? What thermal protection sprays for hair are currently the best?

Some heat style their hair more often than others, that’s obvious. After all, that’s one of the quickest and easiest ways to create nice-looking hairstyles. Sadly, there is a dark side to using high temperatures on the hair. The heat generated by styling tools makes the moisture escape from the hair, resulting in brittleness. The more often the hair is exposed to high temperatures, the sooner it gets lifeless and deprived of shine. The good news is that once you start using heat protection, creating the blowouts and styles won’t harm your strands even a bit.

Ranking of the best heat protectants for hair

Nanoil Heat Protectant Spray

No 1. Nanoil Heat Protectant Spray

Despite being a fairly new product on the market, Nanoil Heat Protectant Spray has already won recognition among the professional hair stylists and regular users. This product’s innovative formula not only protects the strands from extremely high temperatures, but also nourishes, moisturizes and leaves hair glossy. This effect is owed to silk proteins that fix damage and smooth out the hair for shinier appearance. Another ingredient is vitamin E that delivers nutrients and water. Polyquaternium-46 tames unruly strands and protects them from the external aggressors. Thanks to Nanoil Heat Protectant Spray, hair becomes resistant to high temperatures, reaching even 440 degrees F. With this product, you can use curling tongs, dryer or straightener causing zero damage to the strands. This product is available at nanoil.co.uk, where you can also find out more information about the spray if you need it.

No 2. Artego Touch Thermo Shimmer

This is a bi-phase heat protection spray for hair that offers a really high protection against all the negative effects of heat styling. Since it has 150 ml, you may run out of it pretty quickly, especially if you heat style the hair every day. But despite this small capacity, Artego Touch Thermo Shimmer doesn’t fail to deliver promised results. Its formula is weightless and is composed of such ingredients to suit all types of hair equally well – it doesn’t deprive a style of volume. A big plus for having a few plant-based substances, which is something that has a positive effect on the hair. The spray ensures shine and effectively protects the ends from splitting. A word of warning: the fragrance is pretty intense, so if you don’t like strong aromas, you may not like it.

No 3. Sebastian Flaunt Trilliant

Here is another protective shield for the hair. It adds shine and a healthy appearance to the strands. Containing rock crystal extract, Sebastian Flaunt Trilliant seems to be a true gem among all hair protection products. The protective coating it creates is also able to shield the strands against unfavorable weather conditions such as low temperatures, strong wind, high air humidity and burning sun. Thanks to Sebastian Flaunt Trilliant, the hairstyle looks great in all conditions. The spray doesn’t clump hair together. It doesn’t weigh it down either, so you can use as much product as you like. Last but not least, with this product you can combat frizz and static, as well as deliver nutrients and water to the dehydrated hair. The improvement should be visible after a single application.

No 4. Kemon and Heat Spray 13

Looking for a high-end heat protectant for hair? If so, Kemon and Heat Spray 13 may be your go-to. Even though it’s popular mostly in professional hair salons, it’s also good for home use. It holds a style and adds beautiful shine. The good news is that it locks moisture in the hair, which is why it becomes moisturized, shiny and better-looking. Kemon and Heat Spray 13 keeps hairstyles look flawless for the entire day. This protectant makes the strands smoother, more elastic and bouncy, so they are more controllable. If you use hot tools often, cosmetics should serve you well. It’s worth pointing out that the aroma of Kemon and Heat Spray 13 is intense, and the consistency is quite thick, which may not be to everyone’s liking.

No 5. Joico Heat Hero Glossing Thermal Protector

And finally, the one and only heat protector enriched with Morignia seed oil and polymers. These two ingredients are amazing when it comes to making hair brilliantly smooth and glossy, stronger and less brittle. When coated with Joico Heat Hero Glossing Thermal Protector, the hair looks beautiful and healthy. The product protects against temperatures up to 440 degrees F, which is pretty impressive. Moreover, it prevents mechanical damage and splitting. It doesn’t take long for this spray to start delivering all these benefits to the hair. Being able to shield the strands against urban pollution, Joico Heat Hero Glossing Thermal Protector seems to be a perfect choice for those ladies who live in big cities.
