Why Your Hair Needs a Heat-Protectant Spray

Wondering why a heat protectant is an absolute must-have? Here’s why shielding your locks from heat damage is a no brainer for hair of all lengths.

Anyone who’s coveting long, silky locks while patiently growing out their hair knows the struggles of keeping strands healthy and strong in the face of heat. The hotter the flat iron, the more damage it can cause. That’s why using L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray as part of your styling routine is so important. The best heat-protectant products offer serious defence against high temperatures, and this one holds up to the hottest conditions. Read on to find out how using a heat-protectant spray can keep your hair strong.

How does heat-protectant spray work?

It’s no secret that using blow-dryers, flat irons and other tools can cause some serious damage over time. Some of the first telltale signs: split ends and dry, frayed hair that’s prone to breakage. Enter L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray: This game-changing spray protects hair from heat damage up to 230ᵒC (450ᵒF) with its supercharged formula. 

Let’s talk about star ingredients: Castor oil is packed with vitamin E and known for helping hair to grow strong and healthy, while vitamins B3 and B5 promote full, hydrated hair. Camelina sativa seed oil, which contains omega-3 fatty acids, works to prevent damage from free radicals like UV rays. And arginine, an amino acid naturally produced by the body, promotes cellular regeneration. A few things that you won’t find in this super-protective spray: sulphates, parabens and dyes.

What are the benefits of using heat-protectant spray? 

When it comes to creating the best hair care routine, a heat-protectant spray is key. The main benefit, of course, is that it will protect your hair from heat damage, which means no more crispy, singed ends. Less damage means that less breakage will occur during styling and your hair will continue to grow long and healthy. Plus, L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray tames frizz (one of the most obvious signs of heat damage) while hydrating. It also fights humidity, which is something many different hair textures deal with—from not only heat styling but also the hot summer sun. In fact, using L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray  seals in shine for three days of sleek hair! It doesn’t leave any film or residue behind, either. That means your ’do stays looking fresh and sleek for 72 whole hours of work and play.

How can I add a heat-protectant spray to my haircare routine?

The best way to use L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray is to spray it evenly, from about six to eight inches away, on clean, damp hair. Then just flat iron as usual! Pro tip: If you have long hair, separate it and clip it into three even horizontal sections and then flat iron from the top section down.
