Although we don’t recommend it, we understand there are times you simply must use heat on your curls. Winter can be trying for those with curly hair and despite our best made plans we can sometimes find ourselves having to run out of the house with wet curls. If you live in colder climates, allowing your curls to freeze can be quite harmful. However, using heat without any type of protectant in place can also be detrimental to your curls’ health. Here are some great heat protectors you can pick up for not a lot of money.
L’Oreal Color Vibrancy Dual Protect Spray: This product is great for curlies with color or chemical treated hair. Make sure you shake it up well before using to ensure the product is well blended. It also has UV filters to keep curls safe from the sun and adds lots of shine.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Heat Defeat Protective Spray: It’s especially irritating to have damaged and frizzy curls, so pick up this product if you want to combat both. It’s also super easy to find at any of your local big box stores.
L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Blow Dry It Quick Dry Primer Spray: If you have to use heat to dry your curls, it helps to pick up a product that helps it dry more quickly. For those of you with finer curls, this product won’t weigh you down.
Kardashian Beauty Black Seed Dry Oil: This oil can actually be quite heavy, so we’d recommend it more for our curlies with thicker, heavier coils. This works best when applied to the midshaft of your curls and down.
L’Oreal Advanced Hairstyle Blow Dry It Thermal Smoother Cream: With this product a little goes a very long way. You won’t have to use much product to have your curls smoothed out and become easier to manage. It also does a fantastic job protecting your curls from heat.
