      The background of my use of the product In this day and age I think there is only a small minority of people that do not own a pair of hair straighteners, for me, for me my chosen brand amongst many others is GHD, the name actually stands for Good hair day (hence the title) and that's exactly what it helps you to have! If like me you straighten your hair a little more than you probably should then you really do need a thermal protector, the GHD range comes in three types: fine hair, dry hair or weak and damaged hair. My hair becomes rather dry so that is the bottle for me. About the product What GHD say about their brilliant product: Step two protects against heat-styling. Key features include: - Sunflower seed oil extract, which provides hair with UVA protection. - Ingredients that help to protect and repair the hair, prevent colour fade, and give long-l- - Lasting shine and condition. - Heat-deflecting thermal protector which protects the hair from heat appliances. - Shrink-wrap effect that protects the cuticle from moisture loss during heat-styling processes, ensuring excellent results. Why use thermal protectors? - Heat styling can significantly decrease the strength of hair, making breakage more likely, and also making hair more difficult to comb due to raised cuticles on hair fibres. ghd thermal protectors use the latest in heat protection technology to give you 50% extra protection whilst heat styling. New heat activated Heat Shield Protection This unique technology provides: - Outstanding heat protection from any heat appliance up to 200°C. - Smoothes and conditions the hair. - Keeps cuticles flat and smooth for easy combing. - Gives invisible hold without stickiness. - Thermal protectors for three hair types, each with sunflower seed extract for added UVA protection. When I use the product I tend to wash my hair every other day as washing it every day can be very bad for it. After using my usual wash routine I will towel dry my hair and lightly spritz it all over massaging it from root to tip, when I have my brush in blow dry position I often give it one more spritz before applying the heat. Be careful not to use too much though as it may just look greasy once dry. Would I recommend? YES! 100% although you never really know I can tell the difference when using the product and it smells beautiful! You can buy a 150ml bottle for 9.95 on the website but it will last you longer than you think! I am sure if you browse the web/ebay you will find yourself a bargain too! :):):)

      Good protection from split ends due to heat styling

      I have quite long, thick hair which has a natural kink to it but I like to wear it poker straight. As you might imagine, this means that I have to subject my hair to regular heat styling - first via a hairdryer and then with my ceramic straighteners. I'm obviously concerned at the damage that this regular styling does to my hair and, in an attempt to keep it as healthy as possible, always use some form of heat protector spray. The GHD Thermal Protector spray was recommended to me by my hairdresser, so I thought it would be worth a try. THE SPRAY The spray comes in a bronze plastic bottle which is almost triangular in shape, making it very easy to grip. The bottle holds 150ml of the product, and I purchased this online for £9.95. GHD claim that the spray controls unruly hair and adds sustained moisture when heat-styling. The spray also contains ingredients which deflect and absorb heat to protecting the hair shaft. It contains meadow foam seed oil, which is supposed to maintain the moisture content and help increase the elasticity of the hair during heated styling processes. The spray also gives some hold to your styled hair. APPLICATION The spray can be used on just washed hair whilst damp to protect from the heat of the hairdryer or on dry hair before you style using straighteners. As my hair is thick, I usually section my hair out and spray once or twice onto each section, holding the bottle about 15cm from my hair. This seems to give adequate coverage, although it is difficult to tell as the spray doesn't really have any odour to it, nor does it change the texture of the hair in anyway. I then dry and style my hair as normal. EFFECTS After repeated use of this spray - as I think this sort of product can only be assessed by long term effects - my hair did feel in pretty good condition. As I had kept all other factors the same - such as the same shampoo and conditioner and the frequency of styling - this must be attributed to this spray. My hair felt less dry and generally in better condition. Although I did develop some split ends over the time, there were definitely fewer than I would usually expect over this time period. It also meant that I was able to last a couple of extra weeks between haircuts, which is pretty good going as far as I'm concerned. The spray did not feel oily or like it was adding any weight to my hair when I applied it. This meant that I was confident to apply it to the full length of my hair, even towards the roots, which is not true for all heat protector sprays that I have tried. It provided me with reassurance that my hair was protected from the heat of the straighteners, although my hair did seem to steam a little when I used them! The bottle lasted me about two months as I do style regularly. At £9.95, this is not too bad value but I would have liked it to have lasted a little longer to really get value for money. I also did not find that the spray gave me any hold whatsoever to my styled hair, and I still had to use separate styling products for this. Overall, this did the job and prevented my hair from drying out due to styling and also reduced the number of split ends in my hair, so I would recommend it as a protector spray.

        Not bad, but not brilliant.

        I was a bit wary of the GHD brand as the first pair of GHD straighteners I owned exploded after a few months. However, I'd heard good things about the thermal protector spray and so asked for it for Christmas. At around £8 it's more than I would usually pay for a heat protector spray, but as my hair is extremely dry and brittle at the ends after years or dyeing and straightening, I thought I'd get a better quality protector spray to see if it made a difference. I've been using the spray for a couple of months now and it's lasting well, smells good and my hair seems shinier. However, the ends of my hair are still as dry and brittle as ever, even after a trim. It may be that it'll take a while longer to see real results, but so far my hair still definitely appears to still be getting damaged by the heated appliances I use on my hair. However, I've yet to come across a spray which does stop my hair from looking frazzled, so it may just be that my hair is a lost cause. I'm going to carry on using this product, as I'm worried if I don't use anything my hair will fall out all together, but this product is by no means a miracle.

        Disadvantages

        Excellent product!

        Most days I style my hair. Sure I have days where I can't be bothered to do anything with it so I simply tie it back and slob out, however most days I like to wash and style my hair and make it look the best it possibly can. I spotted this in a hairdressers a couple of months back for just under £10.00 and although I wouldn't normally splash out on more expensive hair products I do love my Ghd's and cos I love them so much I felt I really had to buy a bottle of this to try out! The Packaging: 150ml bright pink plastic bottle that is sort of triangle in shape and tall with a matching lid and under that a pink push button sprayer resides. On the front of the bottle there is a pattern drawn on and I am told that it is Ghd Thermal Protector 'For dry, coarse hair', 'Thermodynamics'. Other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, directions for using it are given as are the ingredients and size, lots of information is given in foreign languages and contact details for Ghd Ltd are given. It's a nice enough bottle though in all honesty why make the bottle a funny shape is beyond me as it is rather tricky to hold when using it! A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Bottle: Thermodynamics: When it comes to styling, the heat is always on. Ghd's thermodynamics 4-step range has been expertly formulated for use before, during and after heat-styling, for maximum hair happiness. Step 2: Protect: Help guard the hair against hair damage, add sustained moisture and nutrients. Ghd Thermal Protector For dry, coarse hair: Control unruly hair, deflect hair damage, add sustained moisture and invisible hold when heat styling dry and coarse hair. Contains UVA protection. Directions For Use: Spray onto clean damp hair prior to drying or, before using your ghd styling iron on dry hair, spray lightly onto each section as you style. Using It: Well all you do is pump this onto damp/dry hair. I use this in a couple of ways! I use this on damp hair and then blow dry it and then use my hair straighteners on what is already on my hair or I blow dry my hair with a bit of this combed through prior to drying and then section my hair with clips and then spray this directly on to dry sections bit by bit and then pull the straighteners over it! This sprays out of the bottle with ease and it's a wet transparent slightly smelling of floral liquid that is like a light leave-in moisturiser and none sticky. It's very nicely fragranced with a hint of sweetness to it and fingers and styling products can glide through it with total ease. This is absolutely a brilliant thermal protecting spray. After using it my hair is left delicately fragranced and in fabulous condition. It makes my hair feel really soft and sleek, it really does help with the straightening process and my hair is left full of shine! It doesn't control my hair at all but does make it go straight without any heaviness at all. Verdict: This is one of the best thermal protectors that I have ever, ever used. People actually comment at how poker straight my hair is and how shiny it appears and I have even been asked what hair products I have on my barnet! It's a quick and effortless product that works fabulously time and time and again and since using this my hair has never been so straight or shiny! Fabulous product from GHd!

          Well worth saving up for!

          If you are like me and are a straightening addict then you will need a protector spray to keep your hair in tip top condition - after all it is your crowing glory!! **Price** The GHD thermal protector spray comes in at £10 (with free postage and packing from the GHD website). While this price does seem a bit hefty, it is well worth it. I straighten my hair mostly every day (sometimes twice a day) and this spray seems to last forever! (okay, maybe a few months) If you replace it, once, twice a year then it still works out at a bargain! **Appearence** At £10 a bottle you want something suave, not 'blah'. While the bottle is not in your face 'bling' it is subtley pretty looking. Definetely a product that you would want to show off on your dressing table. **Does it work** Over the (many) years I have straightened my hair I must have used hundreds of hair products to protect my hair. Most of them left my hair sticky and/or greasy looking. I actually came across the GHD thermal spray as it was part of the set that came with my straighteners. Even after the first use I could see that it was far superior to anything else that I had used. Firstly, it smells divine. Not overpowering but a nice delicate scent, makes the daily straightening slog a bit nicer. Secondly, the shine that it leaves behind on you hair is amazing. Its the same effect that hairdressers always seem to acheive. Lastly, I must say that the condition of my hair has improved a lot. I can now go so much longer between hair cuts and my hair still looks in great shape. This product is most definetley worth the extra expense. GHD is a brand that you know that you can trust!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Recommended as protection for possible heat damage caused by GHDs/ blowdrying.

            GHDs are great but there is worry that using them too often without protection can damage the hair. This is why this GHD spray is so good. You spray on either when the hair is damp or when straightening hair, and only a small amount is needed each time so it lasts for ages! I've had mine for 6 months it isn't empty, that's with straightening hair almost every day! Therefore good value for money at £10 for 6 months, and my hair feels better for it; healthy and shiny. Supposed to use as part of a hair care routine - it is called 'step 2', which would get expensive and time consuming, but I only use this product and my hair is in good condition. It is also very quick to apply with few sprays needed. Added bonus is that it is produced by GHD especially for their products, and that it comes in a nice and attractive bottle!

            If you straighten hair look no further...

            Like many of us i don't know what i did before the invention of hair straighteners. its like an addiction I have now; where I can not wear my hair down and be seen in public if it is not poker straight. This is all very well and time consuming but over the past year it came to my attention that my hair was becoming more brittle and split ends where everywhere. I spoke to my hairdresser about it and she recommended GHD thermal protector which at the time I paid the 12.99 and thought thats a little of the expensive side but i'll give it a go. After continuing to starighten my hair almost everyday for the following couple of weeks I gradually noticed an improvement in my hair condition and there was definetely a reduction in split ends. I was then convinced by the product and have continued to use it since. If I was being a little picky about this product though i would say i find it a little annoying and more time consuming to spray on every layer of my hair. I also find it verging on the sticky side and after a while i feel there is a build up of it in my hair. but this could just be down to my hair being fairly thick to begin with. All in all a product i'm glad i came across.

            Easily the number one product for taming you locks.

            I have seriously crazy thick hair - I wouldn't mind if it was curly but it's just a thick, wavy, frizzy mess. Last year, after failing with most hair straighteners I decided to take the plunge and buy GHDs and while I was ditching my cheap straighteners I thought I mareswell ditch the cheap protection sprays and buy one good one while I was at it. I bought the Thermal Protection spray in January, and I've only just had to replace my protection spray - after getting roughly 9 months useage out of my last one. I straighten my hair almost everyday so it's great value. Like the rest of the GHD thermodynamics range the GHD Thermal Protection Spray comes in a Triangle shaped bottle. The normal colour of the spray bottle for thermal protection is gold, but they are currently supporting the charity Breakthrough for Breast Cancer so the bottle I bought is pink - with £1 donated to the charity I can feel good while being vain about my hair! - This spray is designed to protect and control dry and coarse hair, using meadow foam seed oil to maintain moisture while protecting your hair up to 200c with heated styling. There are two ways to use the spray, either spray onto your damp hair before drying or spray as you straighten. I'm a bit cheeky and do both, a quick spritz over my hair before drying and then mist it over each section of hair when I'm straightening, as I find this gives my straight hair a better hold and a nice shine over just using it while drying my hair. I have to say, since I've been using the thermal protection spray my hair has never looked better. It's completely managable, not to mention soft and shiney. Plus my hair always smells fantastic because of using the spray, a kind of salon smell but I really love that! I find myself being able to wait longer between trims because my hair is staying in such a great healthy condition after being protected by the spray, which is great for someone like me growing their hair. I suppose it just goes to show sometimes it's better to fork out for a good brand rather than getting a £3 spray you end up replacing after a few weeks because you're not completely happy with it. The price for this will differ depending where you get it from, I bought my first bottle from the GHD website for £9.75 but got the bottle I just bought for £8.50 from my local salon - so it pays to shop around. I'd recommend this protection spray to anybody who uses heated styling - I'd also recommend them going to www.ghdhair.com so they can have a full look at the products and pick the spray that's perfect for their hair.

              Good item, worth the £10 to help with hair condition

              GHD Thermal Protector - helps to save hair!! Like many of you out there I am an addict to having my hair gorgeously straight and looking sleek most the time and since the BEST invention of GHD hair straightners I do this all the time with such ease. I am naturally a red head but often change the colour of my hair, which makes my hair quite dry anyway (especially when i'm blonde). I have been using GHD thermal protector for over 3 years and I use it each time I straighten my hair, which I must admit has become less frequent due to the state of my hair from having it coloured all shades so often BUT the GHD thermal protector has helped stop the damage and helped to prevent my hair feeling like straw. I use GHD thermal protector because my hair dressers does, I was introduced to it and they reccommended I try it to limit heat damage. It is just a spray, which you spray on your hair, i personally do this when it is dry i have friends that put it on whilst their hair is still wet and then blow dry and straighten, I too sometimes spray this on damp hair. You do NOT need to use loads of this product. I layer my hair with clips and spray betwwn 2-4 times on the layer to ensure all is covered but not dripping wet and then continue to straighten. If you go direct you can buy this product at www.ghdhair.com and get delivery, it costs approx £10 per bottle. I'm sure there are other heat protecting sprays, i am probably just not aware of them, but this is good so i stick to it, although £10 a bottle is not cheap it does last a while, unless your using it everyday of course. Check out all the other stuff too!!

              you can buy cheaper alternatives that smell better from Boots

              You can buy this spray from reputable salons such as Tony and Guy and Saks but you can also buy it online direct from the ghd website for around £10. Its quite expensive and I dont necessarily think you need to spend this much as you can buy simlar products from boots that do the same thing. My hair will always be frizzy, hair is dead and nothing will penetrate it just coats your hair with a fine oily mist to prevent the hair stylers from drying it out further. It controls static and makes hair look shiny and protect from heat up to 200 degrees. GHD claims it gives you hold but I would disagree with this, its nothing like a hair spray its far to oily for that. It contains uva protection and actually claims it can strengthen you hair which I find rediculous, I agree it can prevent it drying out, in turn, causing it to break but I dont actually believe it can make your hair stronger then it already is. It smells plesent enough, im not bowled over by the scent as I can smell the chemicals in it, it dosnt really smell fruity, just a little odd if im honest.

              The only Thermal Protector I've ever liked

              I don't know what I'd do without my GHDs. Recently, I've stopped straightening my hair all the time as I'm trying to crack the winning formula that keeps it nice and well-behaved without resorting to straightening. This is work in progress, and I will be sure to report back to dooyoo when I find it, but even in this period of minimal straightening I still feel a little bit lost when I don't have my GHDs readily available. The last time a pair broke on me I went into hiding. It's quite a dependancy. Heat styling is really important for me to get my hair looking acceptable. Left to dry naturally, my hair plays up - looking smooth for the first few inches and then turning into a riot of frizz from the ears down. To wear it unstraightened is to wear it either scrunched and diffused, tonged or scraped back so no-one can see it. It's fairly important, then, that I use a good thermal protector. You'd think this would be obvious, right? It may surprise you to learn, then, that I hadn't used one for ages before being given this free by my hairdresser (yeah, I'm still trying to work out why they gave me freebies too!). There is a reason for this - all the ones I'd tried had been rubbish! I'd had ones that made me greasy; some that made no difference whatsoever; some that made me static, but none that worked to stop my hair getting damaged. The worst one I'd ever tried was GHD's Iron Oil - this horrible product had left my dry hair like an oil slick, hanging limply around my face. I didn't hold out high hopes for this one then. There are two ways to use this spray: the easy way and the time-consuming way. I choose the easy way (as do most hairdressers when they use similar products, I've found), which is to spray liberally all over your hair before it comes into contact with any heat. As I usually blow dry, this means I give it a spray when I'm towel dried and before any heat touches my poor delicate hair. One trick I learnt from my hairdresser - when you think you've sprayed enough, give it a couple more squirts. Don't be shy. This stuff won't make you greasy (well, assuming you've got the Dry, Coarse Hair version for a reason - like having Dry, Coarse hair...) so spray away. Once you're sprayed up, comb through and get styling. The tricky way is only really suitable if you're using wet to straight straighteners or have left your hair to dry naturally, and involved spending ages spraying each section as you style. This takes ages and gives you no real benefit that I can see. Just make sure that when you're spraying over your whole head that it gets everywhere - spray underneath your layers as well as just on the top. The spray is pump action, and comes out as a very fine mist. This is the ideal spray for this kind of product as it helps it to disperse properly through the hair. The smell is fresh and clean. It doesn't seem to leave any residue on the hair - when applied to dry hair it just feels as if you've sprayed water onto it - it's so inoffensive and light that you almost wonder if it could possibly have any affect on your hair - but it really does. The results from this spray are fantastic. Going from using nothing to using this, I've noticed a massive difference in frizziness. I can now wear my hair blow-dried without having to straighten it, which was unheard of before I found this stuff. When I do straighten it, the result is much smoother and sleeker, without a trace of frizz. Tonged, my hair forms beautiful frizz-free ringlets. I hadn't changed anything else in my hair care regime to achieve these results - it is all down to this product. As I said, I got mine for free. I will be buying a replacement, and that will cost me from £8.45 to £9.45 depending on where I choose to spend. I've been using mine about four times a week for three months now, so it does last well and I'd say that even at these salon prices, it is great value for money.

                Disadvantages

                I love it!

                I have the normal hair version of this but there wasnt a listing for it. I have it because it came as part of a package with my GHD hair straighteners as a free gift. It costs 12.95 on the GHD website but I think you can get it cheaper in places like Boots or Superdrug. You have to spray it on layers of hair before blowdrying and straightening so that your hair is more protected from heat. Its not greasy but you dont need to use much. Just one spray is enough for each section of hair. I find it easy to use if you also have sectioning clips, that way you know which bit you have sprayed already and you dont use too much on each layer of hair. The bottle is a nice design and is easy to spray whilst you are straightening/blow drying. I have been using it for a few weeks now, and you can really tell the difference after straightening. As well as protecting your hair from heat, it also makes it nice and shiny, and much sleeker looking. Those of you who straighten your hair a lot really need to use a product like this so that your hair doesnt go all frizzy and damaged. The smell is really nice and fruity. After using it you smell like you have had your hair done in a hairdressers. I would recommend just getting the normal hair type if you have mid length slightly straight hair that doesnt get too much straightening use. If your hair is more frizzy or curly then I would recommend the coarse hair version. If you are buying ghds then if you get them from GHD-Uk then they give you this product free with it. I probably wouldnt have bought it, as there are cheaper versions.

                If you own a pair of GHD's then this spray is definitely for you to help keep on protecting the hair

                I am an absolute fan of my GHD straighteners (as I think just about every girl that I talk to is) and in conjunction with them I also use the GHD thermal protector for dry and course hair. The nice thing was that a free bottle came with my GHD's when I first purchased them. That was about a year ago now and I have still not needed to buy a new bottle but it is nearly gone but I would say definitely a long lasting product. I use it every time I straighten my hair as well (twice or three times a week) so very good value. The formula also comes in packaging for normal/fine hair and weak/damaged hair. They are £9.95 from the official website but you can buy them in hair salons etc. They are generally the same price though, sometimes a bit more expensive. Basically the spray is designed to help guard the hair against heat damage while locking in moisture and nutrients. When you are using your GHD's obviously that is some serious heat projecting onto your hair so this product also adds moisture and deflects and absorbs heat to protect the hair shafts. It also contains UVA protection. There are two ways to use this spray. You can spray it onto damp hair prior to drying or you can spray it onto each strand of hair whilst you are using your straightener. I prefer to spray in onto the damp hair and comb it through before I hair dry it. That way I feel my hair has really been covered with the spray and been worked through all of my strands with the brushing. I did use it the other way (spraying a little on each strand before I used the GHD's on them) but I found that my hair ended up a bit sticky and also clumped a little bit together and I had to brush out the spray after use. I may have used too much spray on each strand but I still recommend the other way. The spray has a fairly pleasant smell when you spray it on, a bit hairspray like but after you have straightened your hair and it is dry you do not really smell the spray. I have found that I definitely like this spray and would recommend people to use it. I feel my hair is still in good condition after I straighten and that it is quite sleek, skinny and healthy. You can visit their website at www.ghdhair.com. I recommend looking as its well worth a visit. As well as this spray they do an excellent range of serums, shampoos and conditioners to also help protect your hair when you use your GHD's.

                  Who are GHD? ------------------ As I am sure you all know GHD are most famous for their hair straightening irons. GHD stands for Good Hair Day and over the last few years they have become a household name with their range of professional hair products. This range of products includes styling products, brushes, shampoos, conditioners and finishing products. What is the GHD Thermal Protector? --------------------------------------------- The GHD Thermal Protector is a lightweight protection specially formulated for fine to normal hair. It is designed to protect the hair with ingredients which deflect and absorb the heat from styling products such as hair straightening irons. This spary protects your hair against temperatures of up to 400c. GHD hair straighteners became so famous because they can heat up to 210 degress in less than 10 seconds, but as we all know the styling results may be amazing, but this amount of intense heat can be very damaging to your hair - This is where the GHD thermal protector spray comes in. Price ------ I paid £9.50 for mine from http://www.ghdhairproducts.co.uk. Packaging ------------- The product comes in a stylish, sexy gold pump bottle. It looks extremely sleek and professional. Directions on bottle ------------------------ Spray onto clean, damp hair prior to drying or, before using your ghd styling iron on dry hair, spray lightly onto each section as you style. Benefits for me ------------------- It smells nice Light, so it does not weight down my hair Makes my hair shiny Protects my hair from heat damage. It is Oil free Personal Use ----------------- I usually straighten my hair with my GHD hair straighteners every 2 to 3 days. Over the last year I have become more aware of the damage I may be doing to my hair and so started to look for a way to protext it but still be able to style and straighten it. I came across the GHD Thermal Protector about 8 months ago and I have been using it ever since. I have only just had to buy a new bottle as I have never needed to use much. Initially I thought that £10 per bottle was quite expensive, but now I think it is pretty reasonable for the amount of use I have got out of it and the time it has lasted me. I think you will probably only need 2 bottles per year (obviously depending upon how often you need to use it, and how long or thick your hair is). Wet & Dry Hair ------------------ I have used the spray when styling both wet and dry hair. I probably use it on dry hair the most. For both I recommend holding the spray at just under arms length away from you and spray a light mist over your entire head of hair. one pump should do it. I usually then run a light comb through my hair to make sure it is evenly spread out and then go about styling it. Conclusion ---------------- Since I began using the thermal protector spray I have found that all the claims on the bottle are true - Straight, smooth hold and a brilliant shine to my hair. Any although I would never have said it was tricky or difficult to straighten my hair in the past, my straighteners do just seem to glide over my hair now, and it is easier to style my hair. While the bottles can be a bit on the expensive side, when you consider how little you need to use and how long a bottle lasts it makes it seem much more reasonably priced.

                    A heat protector spray from GHD.

                    After reading littlexen's fantastic review of this product back in November I decided I simply couldn't wait until Christmas to try it out and found myself ordering some of the internet shortly after logging off DooYoo! I've quickly found over the years that with the constant straightening my hair comes the added burden of having coarse, dry and frizzy hair. I'm a huge and loyal fan to my GHD's and would never consider not using them but despite having tried numerous protection sprays over the years none of them seem to make that drastic a difference to the quality or protection of my hair. This product comes in a tall, glossy bronzed golden bottle which looks quite classy and elegant. The lid is a slightly lightly colour than the bottle and pulls off easily to reveal a small push down pump type dispenser to release the product easily into your hair. GHD is displayed on the bottle along with the title of the product and a fairly abstract, artistic design. The bottle is made of plastic and stands quite easily on any flat surface. The product only comes in the one size at present which is a 150ml bottle. To dispense the spray you simply need to press down on the pump, I find if you hold the bottle quite far from your head the spray is dispensed quite widely and covers a lot of your hair - it's much better than some sprays I've used in the past where the liquid is literally sprayed out and concentrated into a really tiny area. The spray is a clear liquid and has a lovely smell, it reminds me of really posh hair salons with their exquisite products. It's slightly perfumed with a hint of hair spray also but is really lovely. Always remember to towel dry your hair before applying as if not the spray may simply run off in the droplets of moisture from your hair. It says to apply evenly throughout your hair, at present my hair is just below my shoulders and quite thick but I find about 7-8 sprays are adequate to cover all my hair. I then tend to brush through the product to ensure it's applied evenly throughout my hair or alternatively you could split your hair into smaller sections beforehand and do it that way to be on the safe side. Next you simply move onto your regular routine of drying and straightening your hair, while knowing that it's protected against any heat damage that may occur as a result of a hair dryer or hair straighteners. So what makes it so special then? Well the products claims to "Control unruly hair and add sustained moisture when heat-styling with this light hold thermal protector. Contains ingredients which deflect and absorb heat, protecting the hair shaft. Contains UVA protection." It not only helps to deflect any heat damage from the hair follicle but also coats down the hair shaft meaning that less damage actually reaches the hair itself and so reduces any harmful effects or results. I can honestly say that in my opinion every single word of what it claims to do is true. I've used this product on several occasions now and each time have found my hair to go flatter and straighter than it has with previous products, to remain straighter for a longer period of time and to not go frizzy at all, even when spending the day outside. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product 100% and will definitely be buying a replacement as soon as I run out; this spray isn't going to be leaving my bathroom shelf ever! I did worry that it might make my hair slightly greasy or just make it go greasy quicker but this certainly wasn't an issue, in fact there wasn't a single negative result of using this product... except my new found addiction to it! It leaves my hair feeling in a much softer condition, especially the top layers which did have a tendency to feel especially dry and go slightly frizzy. It also gives an added boost of shine to my hair which is really noticeable, especially in the light. I tend to straighten my hair twice a week and imagine on that basis that the product will last me about 2-3 months in total, I paid £10.95 for mine and judging from a little research online most sites seem to sell it at anything from £9.00 up to about £12.00 with postage costs varying. Amazon offer quite a good deal where they sell it for £8.95 with free postage if you spend £15.00 or over. So go on, treat yourself or a loved one at Christmas, with something no one would ever be disappointed with! Thanks for reading!
