Maintaining a good hairstyle isn’t just about the appearance anymore; well-tamed hair can change the way people perceive your personality. When it comes to fashion, hairstyles have been used to redefine eras. From the 70s style fringe to Jennifer Aniston’s ‘The Rachel’ haircut from the popular sitcom Friends, a hairstyle can take you back into moments and time.
It’s no surprise that men and women spend a lot of time almost every morning trying to style their hair to that perfect look where each and every strand is in the exact same place they want it to be. However, to keep that salon-look stable throughout the day one needs to use styling tools like hair dryers, straighteners, curling irons and more. Heat definitely makes our hair look better externally but what we fail to realise is that it leads to a lot of internal damage. Fret no more and meet heat protectants; hair products that save your hair from any kind of exposure to heat that may result from using styling tools.
How do heat protectants work?
Heat protectants work by building heat-absorbing polymer around the hair strands and prevents the breakdown of protein in the hair by heat. They are a must have for all the men and women who style their hair regularly or occasionally. What’s more, they are available in various forms like spray, mousse and serum to suit every hair type.
