What Does Heat Protection Spray Actually Do?

This might seem self-explanatory, but many people are confused about what these sprays actually do for your hair before it comes into contact with heat. Some people have gone as far to say that the idea of a heat protectant is a marketing ploy. As your beauty school in Oak Park, we at Ms. Roberts Beauty Academy are here to explain exactly what these sprays achieve.


Your hair is dry to begin with and adding the heat from your blow-dryer, straightening and curling iron makes it even more dry. That is where heat protection spray comes it, it is like a conditioner but lighter.  It gives your hair all of the vitamins and fatty acids it needs to get a healthy blow dry. The heat protectant also forms a layer over the hair shaft, which locks in hydration.

They Work on Any Hair

Yes, that’s right, heat protection sprays work on all types of hair, dry or wet. Some people figure that if their hair is already dry, it won’t absorb the moisture. This is wrong, while the optimal time to apply it is when your hair is damp, dry hair can still benefit from a heat protectant.

Time Saver

The combination of hair-coating and restorative ingredients actually makes your hair dry faster. Therefore, you spend less time styling you hair and less time with direct heat contact.
