Why We Love Heat Protectant Creams

There are endless benefits to this particular product, including non-stop shine.

1. They’re one of the best ways to combat winter dryness.

When the frigid winter months roll around, it feels like all of the moisture is sucked from our hair and skin. We do everything we can to restore some hydration as we pile on the serums and moisturizers. One of the best ways to combat dryness is with a heat protectant cream. The cream-like consistency effortlessly restores and locks in lost moisture.

2. They pull double duty.

A heat protectant cream, like Suave Professionals Keratin Heat Defense Leave in Conditioner, is the best way to give parched hair some love, while simultaneously locking the added moisture in and protecting your strands from heat styling damage. Do you future self a favor and always protect your hair before you use hot tools! When your product of choice doubles as leave-in conditioner, you won’t be hearing any complaints from us.

3. They’re a time-saver.

Let’s be honest: We don’t always have the time or patience to use multiple hair products on a regular basis. For days when you do have time, follow your usual wash and care routine up with a heat protectant spray like TRESemmé Get Sleek Heat Protection Spray. But if you’re running low on time or patience, opting for a product that does two things at once will no doubt keep you happy while keeping your hair healthy.
