“ Brand: Boots / Hair protection spray / Type: Hair Spray / What it does: Protects, „
Due to the fact that I straighten my hair meticulously every single day, I do need to make sure that I have a good heat defence spray to ensure that my hair doesn't get (too) frazzled between trips to the hairdresser!
So this is why I used to only invest in the GHD sprays that were available, until I tried this little wonder quite by accident.
I was at my mum's and I'd forgotten my usual GHD defence spray, so after thorough mooching through my mum's beauty stuff; I decided to give this a try..
You spray the bottle at the ends of your hair from about 30cm away, then I tend to run a comb through my hair to make sure that it's all protected. Then you simply straighten your hair as normal. Simple as that!
Some heat defence sprays tend to smell really strongly, or get really sticky like hairspray; but this one doesn't. I'm not sure how it works so well as it is practically odourless and it doesn't leave a weird residue on your hands or your hair - which I'm sure you didn't want.
For £3 you get a 200ml bottle, which has a spray top (as the name would suggest!) and it is very easy to use. As i've said before, I straighten EVERY day and it lasts me a good month or so, so it is most definitely worth what you pay for it.
I make a huge saving moneywise, yet still have good heat defence spray on my hair, I suggest you switch now! :)
As I usually use straightners a couple of times a week, I always make sure that I have got some sort of heat protection spray about. Being that my daughter does the same we usually end up sharing the cost, so we didn't think nothing of paying out £5-6 for the Lee Stafford heat protection spray. I was never a great fan of this as it always had such a strong smell of candyfloss and I did used to worry that it would attract wasps or bees to my hair!
While browsing around in Boots I saw this version in their own brand and at only £2.99 it was half the cost of the usual one, so I thought I would give it a go and glad I did.
Coming in a clear plain plastic bottle with a head and shoulders picture of
a woman on the front, it is as simple as that. Not being as funky and modern looking as the Lee Stafford bottle in it's bright pink packaging. A simple press down spray, that comes out in a short burst or if pressed harder a longer shot is had.
This has a slight smell to it that is really pleasant and actually reminds me of being at the hairdressers. It smells just like what they use, so that can't be bad. This spray is usually used just before straightening or curling your hair as a protective barrier from the heat of the tools.
The best way to use this, is to clip sections of your hair up and give the part that you are straightening a quick spray ( you only need a slight spray!)then proceed to straighten that section. This doesn't leave your hair sticky or greasy and actually helps give is a lovely glossy finish.
This product does say that it contains antioxidants and UV filter that will also protect your hair against enviromental pollutants.
This product is flammable so has to be used and kept somewhere safe, I usually just keep mine on top of a chest of drawers with my other hair products. This 200ml bottle does seem to last quite a long time, even with 2 of us using it several times a week.
I will continue to use this particular one now, as apart from the cost I much prefer the light smell that this one has . This used to sell under the name of "Boots Hair Science Heat Spray" and has now been changed to "Expert Heat Protection Spray".
And what's even better, at the moment it is selling for only £1.99 on special offer!!
So simple packaging, great product and low price 5 Dooyoo Stars from me!
