I'm a big fan of my CHI hair straightener, but I want to minimize the damage that's due to heat styling.
Last summer, Ingrid/Missglamorazzi was talking about this Tresemmé one. In true fangirl nature, I bought it in hopes of having locks like hers.
Ingrid mentioned that it had a great wide-spray nozzle, instead of those pesky single squirt ones.
I have a lot of hair, but it's super fine (if that makes sense), so any single squirts would already be enough to soak chunks of my hair and create build up.
It sprays widely and quite fine, like a mist.
What I have noticed is that the actual product is some sort of lubricant. I have dark satin(ish?) finish bathroom tiles, and I've noticed that after spraying the heat protectant, I'm left with super slippery and greasy bathroom tiles!
My solution? Now, I step into the bath tub whenever I spray it on my hair. It gives my bath tub a bit of slip, but at least, I won't have to scrub my bathroom tiles daily.
It doesn't seem to make my hair feel particularly slippery though.
For those interested in the ingredients:
Does this work? Is it even necessary?
Honestly, I have no clue.
Seeing how it's a slippery substance, it probably acts as some sort of physical barrier between the heat and my hair.
I'm just using it for preventative measure, haha. Mostly, I'm spraying this on my tips, to mitigate damage that would induce frays and split ends. (And, that's when I remember to spray it.)
Most days, I'm too lazy to step into the tub to spray, and then wait a few seconds for it to dry a bit before I scorch it, haha.
My hair doesn't really seem to feel or look any different with this product... so, I won't be repurchasing it.
It will probably take me ages to finish the remainder of this bottle.
At the end of the day, I think it's important to invest in better quality heat tools. Either way, heat styling will damage hair... A better heat tool just won't dry it as much.
