Coating your strands with a heat defence spray is a prerequisite for hair styling with hot tools; we’ve rounded up tried-and-true picks to protect your tresses.
Guard Against Irreparable Hair Damage With The 8 Best Heat Protectant Sprays

I will go out on a limb and say – investing in a curling iron or quality straightener is pointless if you’re not shielding your strands with the best heat-protectant formula. It goes without saying that spritzing a heat defence spray or serum is a good rule of thumb when exposing the hair to hot tools, especially if you’re a regular styler. Not only does it protect your mane from the adverse aftermath of heated devices, but it also helps cut back on the cost of a restorative hair mask or replenishing leave-in treatment. Prevention is better than cure, correct? So, we took the trouble to sift out and narrow down the best heat-protectant sprays on the market.
