Best Heat Protectant Spray for Hair? Read My Reviews of Best-Sellers!

Hey guys! Many of you ask me how to protect hair from heat effectively. It’s important not only in the summer. Hot dryer, curler or flat-iron is as damaging as the sunlight! That’s why a good heat protectant is an essential element of daily hair care and styling routine. In today’s post, I round up 3 trusted and best-selling thermal sprays for hair!

Why should you use a heat protectant spray?

Before getting to the bottom, I want to talk about the importance of thermal protection products while styling the hair. Guarding it from heat is the most obvious reason why we should get one. Such a spray not only protects from a dryer but also from the sun and harmful UV rays. The best hair product for the summer! Priming strands for styling is another benefit of using a good heat protectant: it will help you do your hair, tame unruly strands and add smoothness. Therefore, if your hairdo is a bit rebellious, tangled, frizzy or static – a thermo spray is a must. Many heat protectants are enriched with nutrients. I’m not big on ones with oils (they make my hair fall flat quickly) but I love ones rich in panthenol or silk proteins!

Best-Selling Heat Protectant Sprays for Hair: Which One to Choose?

Nanoil Heat Protectant Spray

Nanoil Heat Protectant Spray

Rating: 10/10

The coolest heat protectant for styling and protecting against high temperatures. Nanoil Heat Protectant Spray brilliantly revitalizes hair (it is visibly stronger and more resistant to damage after a few uses) and produces an amazing effect of hair smoothness, bounce and shine. The spray makes locks easier to manage, plus it smells like heaven. I like to use it in the winter the most because it makes my hair stronger and better looking but also staves off static flyaways without weighing down – even a hat didn’t leave it flat. The formula is rich in beautifying polymers, and silk proteins which give incredible smoothness. Nanoil Heat Protectant Spray is 200 ml for a great price. I recommend it to you the most.

Balmain Thermal Protection Spray

Rating: 9/10

I guess Balmain isn’t a well-known brand or… is it? Are you familiar with this heat protectant spray? If not, I guarantee it’s worth trying because of the really beneficial ingredients and good protective barrier against heat of a dryer. On hot summer days it creates an effective filter to guard hair from the sun. I used it all summer and my hairdo didn’t get dull-looking or crazy dry. Actually, Balmain Thermal Protection Spray was my number one before I got Nanoil. As I said before it has some cool components, and despite oils, it doesn’t weigh hair down or make it greasy and flat. It is quite a good conditioner. Unfortunately I take one point away for a price – I think it’s too much for a heat protectant.

Kérastase Genesis Défense Thermique

Rating: 7/10

To me, the hair bain – fancy name for shampoo – is the top product from Kerastase. The strengthening ampules do quite well too. Without a doubt, the brand has a good rep. When it comes to consumer reviews, there are mixed opinions, but I have nothing against the Kérastase Genesis Défense Thermique. I’ve tried it. It’s a decent product, helps keep the hair healthy, is non-overburdening, and definitely makes the styling routine easier, taming unruly strands. My hair is “normal” and has medium porosity so coconut oil in the formula doesn’t do any damage, however, I must warn you if your locks are dry or damaged – it may trigger frizz. Kérastase Genesis Défense Thermique also contains plant-derived proteins for nourishing, and ginger root extract to stimulate blood flow and prevent hair loss. I don’t use it on the scalp, though. I once did and it didn’t feel nice. Still, it is okay for hair. If any of you tried applying Kérastase Genesis Défense Thermique on the scalp please let me know what you think and if it really reduces hair loss. The feeling of discomfort on my scalp is what I don’t like about this product. The small packaging and high price are the negatives too.

The list of my three grand heat protectants is complete! Any comments? Please share! 🙂
