All Things Hair | 26 July 2018

Remember: one size doesn’t necessarily fit all.

Fact: any time you use a heated styling tool on your hair, you cause some sort of damage to your delicate strands. And nobody wants a damaged, dry mane, right? By simply using the best heat defence spray for your hair type, you can help to keep your hair looking luscious and healthy. And while each heat defence spray’s main aim is to protect against heat damage, they’re also made with different hair types in mind. Read on to discover which one is best for you.

The best heat defence for different hair types



TRESemmé Heat Defence Spray


Best heat protection for fine hair

Sprays or mists. These are usually best as this hair needs all the volume it can get and lighter sprays will prevent hair from being too weighed down.

TryTONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist

VO5 Heat Protect Serum

Best heat protection for dry hair

Serums or oils. Hair can be given an extra boost of moisture whilst also being protected against heat damage. The use of oil can penetrate the hair shaft at a deeper level, therefore providing better results.

Try: VO5 Heat Protect Serum

TRESemmé Biotin+ Repair 7 Primer Cream

Best heat protection for curly/ natural hair

Cream/serum/oil. These forms of heat protectants will give curly hair a bit more slip and will make detangling and straightening a lot easier. However, natural hair types can benefit from a product that is thicker in nature.

Try: TRESemmé Biotin + Repair 7 Primer Cream
