1. Heat Protector

Most people tend to quickly spritz their hair a few times before going in with a blow dryer, curling iron or straightener. To avoid damaged hair you need to work the heat protector into all sections of your hair. Spray on and then comb or brush through to ensure even application. Pay special attention to the tresses framing your face, as they will be subject to the most heat styling.
