My hair is somewhere between curly and wavy, and it is so frizzy and out of control that my only option is to wear it straight. In order to wear it straight, I need to blow dry and straighten my hair after each time that I wash it. My hair can look really dry and it does get damaged with lots of split ends. I decided to buy a heat protection product in order to stop my hair from getting damaged more and I chose the Catwalk Sleek Mystique Haute Iron Spray by Tigi.
What does the product do?
The product protects the hair when it is being straightening by offering protection from temperatures of up to 450 degrees. It also hydrates the hair, smooths the hair cuticles to make the hair look shinier and feel silky and soft. It claims that it will stop your hair from being damaged to leave it looking healthy and in a better condition.
How do you use the product?
After you have dried and styled your hair, the product is to be sprayed onto the hair by sectioning off the hair in order to ensure that you cover it all. Once it has settled into the hair, you can then straighten the hair knowing that it would be protected. You can also spritz it into damp before blow drying it in order to get a little bit more protection.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a metallic black and red tin which is eye catching and attractive. It looks like a little can of hairspray and it has a black cap to protect the product from going off in your bag. It costs around £12 for 200ml of the product and it can be bought from most good hairdressers and also from a variety of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product is quite easy to use. It comes out as a fine mist and works like an aerosol so it comes out in one continuous burst. It smells quite fruity and musky, although it is a touch medicinal. The aroma is really evident as you use the product. I hold the can about 30cm from my hair and give a short burst. Even if I straighten my hair straight away, it doesn't make my hair sizzle or crack and you don't get any steam coming off the hair like you can with some 'wet' products.
It makes the hair smell nice, hydrates it well and gives the hair a nice shine. It also seems to keep my hair straighter for longer although I'm not sure if it's supposed to! I do also use it before blow drying and although I didn't notice a major difference in the condition of my hair, over time with continued use it's starting to look really healthy. You don't need to use much of the product in each application, and using too much makes the hair too wet which isn't good so it should be long lasting. It doesn't make the hair look greasy or make it tangled and it hasn't caused me any irritations or discomfort.
All in all, this is a good hair protecting product which is good for those who frequently straighten their hair. It smells nice, makes the hair shine and leaves it feeling soft and silky. Over time, the condition of my hair has improved and I would happily repurchase this product again.
