Last year I had dyed black hair with bright fire red streaks and I decided that I was sick of that and I wanted to go lighter. I knew it was going to hard work but I was adamant that's what I wanted so that's what I did. I used the Scott Cornwall colour remover as well as many amounts of hair destroying bleach to get there, but I did. As the time went on my hair got blonder and blonder thus resulting in it now being white blonde in colour. I usually get my roots done every 6 weeks and I have to use bleach and a toner each time to lighten as my hair is so dark. I work in a hairdressers and these last few months I have had a lot of occasions to attend resulting in me getting my roots done a lot more than usual too which resulted in my hair being very damaged and dry and sections around my hair line snapping off.
I didn't want to get rid of my blonde hair as I love it but I did have to cave in and get a fair amount cut off to improve the appearance which really gave me a kick up the butt to start looking after it a bit better. Off I went to the shops and purchased some products to help. As well as using treatments and serums I came across the wella high hair flat iron spray and decided to purchase this as I tend to straighten my hair a lot even more so with it being damaged and flyaway.
I purchased the flat iron spray from a home bargains store for £1.99 which I thought was very reasonable as the bottle size was 200ml. The bottle is frosted plastic and has a black rubber section around the top for ease of use. The top is a pump action spray which is ideal and easy to use while straightening. The liquid inside appears blue in colour and the packaging as a whole is basic but nice.
A flat iron spray is basically used to protect the hair from straighteners. When the hair is dried it should be sprayed onto the hair then smoothed over with the straighteners to create a protected shiny finish. This particular spray also has a light hold and anti frizz effect to make the hair appear soft and silky looking.
This spray is indeed very light on the hair and doesn't leave any sign of residue or make the hair appear greasy or weighed down as some products similar to this can. The smell is nice and after using this spray 5-6 times a week now for about a month I can definitely see a different to the condition of my hair. By protecting my already dry hair from the further damage of straightening irons my damaged areas have begun to grow back in nicely and my hair feels and looks a lot healthier resulting in me being able to manage it a lot better. Even after so much use this bottle is lasting well and in the future I will always be using this spray.
I recently started to going to a Wella hair salon so started trying out some of their products.
I have always been a lover of GHD heat protection spray but at nearly £11 a bottle I thought I would try the flat iron spray by Wella as it was only £7.
This spray is very light and definitely does protect the hair well, after straightening my hair was smooth, free of frizz and smelt lovely. The only thing I did find with this product which I didnt with the GHD spray was that the next day I had to wash my hair as it went very greasy! I have very fine hair and washing it everyday is not something I really like doing as it just falls out!
If you have a thicker hair I think this spray would be perfect not only does it stop your hair drying out it also thins it out a bit and makes styling much more manageable.
For fine hair like mine I would recommend the GHD product instead.
Definitely a great spray for hair straightening!
Wella High Hair Flat Iron Spray 200mls.
I love this product and use it almost every day. It is a heat protection spray that you spray on your hair before you use hair straighteners.
It costs around £6 and I have never ever seen it on special offer, it is available from Boots, Superdrug and often Hair Salons sell it.
It comes in a clear bottle and has a spray to dispence the fluid. The fluid is light blue in colour and you don't need to spray very much on your hair as a little goes a long way.
Basically what you do is wash and condition and dry your hair as usual. You then spray your hair with this spray just before you use straighteners to style it. This product can also be used before you blow dry your hair and prevents frizz.
It contains pro-vitamin B5and a UV filter so it is a very good useful hair product and as I said before a little goes a long way.
I have to admit that I am one of those people who possess no hairdressing skills whatsoever. Whenever I try to blow-dry my hair in an attempt to recreate that "just left the salon look", I fail miserably and my hair always ends up untamed and frizzy. It is because of this severe lack in hairdressing skills that I am pathetically dependent on my straighteners to produce any kind of recognizable style and I have become in the habit of ritually abusing my hair with temperatures of 220°C every day.
Most of the products I have bought in the past designed to smooth and protect my hair from such heat abuse have left my hair feeling greasy or sticky, but on a recent visit to a different salon, the hairdresser recommended the Wella High Hair Flat Iron Spray priced at £8.99 for a 200ml bottle. Now the cynic and cheapskate in me thought, she must be getting commission to push this stuff, but considering she had just made a good job of the cut, I pushed the boat out and bought a bottle.
The bottle itself is light blue in colour and quite small and stubby with a push pump dispenser. It is comfortable to hold and doesn't slip out of your hand when you push the pump because the neck of the plastic bottle is rubberised to help you grip.
The directions say to wash and dry your hair as normal, then shake the bottle well to mix the two phases of the product, and finally spray it evenly through the hair, section by section before applying the straigteners.
The two-phase styling lotion spray is designed to be used with straightening irons because the oil gives your hair protection from the heat and the light hold component helps to maintain the straightened effect until the next shampoo. The spray also has anti-frizz properties to help protect the style from the effects of humidity.
The product dispenses well in an even spray and quickly disperses through the hair. It smells a lot like hairspray and has the lubricating feel of hair serum, but it is not greasy, in fact it feels quite light in your hair. After straightening, my hair did look healthily shiny and a lot less frizzy than normal. The bottle says that the spray strengthens and protects with pro vitamin B5 and UV filter and I must admit after repeated use, my hair does appear silkier and less flyaway.
In my opinion, this is a good product, which does work and gives the same overall effect as using a combination of straightening cream and serum without that heavy oily feel. Unfortunately, I have only ever seen it for sale in hairdressing salons and at £8.99 for a 200ml bottle it is a little on the expensive side - if anyone knows anywhere I can get it cheaper I would appreciate a message.
This flat iron spray gives your hair perfect protection when using staightening irons. Before application make sure you shake the bottle to mix the solution together. Can apply to individual sections or with one application then straighten. The flat iron spray has a nice light fragrance, doesnt feel as if you have anything on your hair, makes hair feel like silk. The spary comes in 200ml bottle so ideal size to travel with if going on holiday of away for the weekend. However your styling your hair with the straigheners, whether curling or straightening, this product is ideal. I have been using this product for 3 years and would never use any other heat protection spray. I spray this onto wet hair aswell, before i blowdry my hair, this then protects from my hairdryer aswell,as the straightning irons. Make sure you shake the bottle, if you dont it can make your hair look greasy.
This is one of those products that you can never find in shops only the internet and hairdressers! I use it whenever I dry or style my hair and it seems to keep in the moisture and stop it from tangling and going hay-wire! I discovered it when it was used on my hair at the hairdressers! I could of bought some from them but scoured the internet instead for the cheapest!
