The Ultimate Guide to Heat Protection

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on heat protection for your hair. In this blog, we’ll delve into why using heat protectant is important, practical tips for application, and the best products to use. We’ve got all the information you need to keep your hair healthy and vibrant!

Why is Heat Protection Important?

 Heat protection products are made to shield your hair from the heat of styling tools like blow dryers, flat irons, and curling wands. They work by coating your hair’s cuticle, creating a protective layer to reduce moisture loss and prevent heat damage. Using them is crucial, especially if you use hot tools often, to keep your hair healthy.

Additionally, they not only guard against high temperatures but also offer extra benefits like UV protection, making them essential for your hair care routine.

Tips for Using Heat Protectants Effectively

  • Ensure your hot tools are set to a temperature between 350-400°F to minimize heat damage.
  • Apply heat protectant evenly throughout your hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends where heat styling is most concentrated.
  • Don’t forget to reapply heat protectant if you’re restyling or touching up your hair throughout the day.

How to Apply Heat Protection on Wet Hair:

If you prefer to apply heat protection to your hair while it’s still wet before blow drying, here’s our recommended method for using a heat protectant product on wet hair.

  1. Towel Dry: After washing your hair, gently towel dry it to remove excess water. Your hair should be damp but not dripping wet.

  2. Apply Heat Protectant: Take a small amount of heat protectant product and evenly distribute it through your hair. Start from the mid-lengths to the ends, as these areas are more prone to damage from heat styling.

  3. Comb Through: Use a wide-tooth comb to evenly distribute the heat protectant throughout your hair. This ensures that every strand is coated for maximum protection.

  4. Style as Desired: Once the heat protectant is applied, you can proceed to style your hair using heat styling tools as usual. The protectant will create a barrier between your hair and the heat, reducing the risk of damage.

  5. Finish with Styling Products: If desired, you can finish your style with additional styling products such as hairspray or serum to add hold or shine. Make sure these products are compatible with heat styling and won’t counteract the effects of the heat protectant.

How to Apply Heat Protection on Dry Hair:

  1. Prepare Hair: Ensure your hair is completely dry before applying the heat protectant. If necessary, use a blow dryer on a low or cool setting to dry your hair thoroughly.

  2. Divide Hair: Divide your hair into sections to ensure even application of the heat protectant. You can use clips or hair ties to separate the sections.

  3. Dispense Product: Shake the heat protectant bottle well, then spray or pump a small amount of product into your hand. The amount will vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair, but start with a small amount and add more if needed.

  4. Apply to Hair: Rub the heat protectant between your palms to evenly distribute it, then gently run your hands through each section of hair, focusing on the mid-lengths to ends. Make sure to avoid applying too much product at the roots, as this can weigh down the hair.

  5. Comb Through: Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to comb through each section of hair to ensure the heat protectant is evenly distributed.

  6. Style as Desired: Once the heat protectant is applied, you can proceed to style your hair using heat styling tools such as flat irons or curling wands. The protectant will create a barrier between your hair and the heat, reducing the risk of damage.

Fall-Proof Your Hair: How to Maintain Healthy Hair in the Fall

As the leaves change color and the temperature drops, it’s not just your wardrobe that needs an update; your hair care routine should also transition to accommodate the changing seasons. Fall can be harsh on your hair, with cooler and drier weather causing potential damage and frizz. But fear not! With a few simple adjustments to your hair care routine, you can keep your locks looking vibrant and healthy throughout the autumn season.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate.

Fall weather often comes with lower humidity levels and drier conditions, especially in Utah. This can lead to dry and brittle hair. You can combat this by maintaining proper hydration both internally and externally. Drink plenty of water to keep your body and hair well-hydrated.

Maintain a Healthy Diet

Healthy hair starts from the inside out. No matter the season, incorporating foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids into your diet is crucial. Foods like salmon, avocado, nuts, and leafy greens can promote hair health and prevent dryness and breakage.

Change-up Your Shampoo and Conditioner

As the weather changes, so should your hair care products. Swap out your lightweight summer products for richer, more nourishing options. Look for shampoos and conditioners that contain moisturizing ingredients like Jojoba EstersShea Butter, and Argon Oil. Additionally, you can add a deep conditioner treatment to your routine to give your hair an extra boost of hydration.

Get a Trim!

Hair Care Tips for Fall: Adjusting Your Routine to Prevent Damage and Frizz in Autumn

Combat Static and Frizz with Hair Oil

Hair oil can be a powerful ally in your battle against static and frizz, especially during the fall season. As the air becomes cooler and drier, our hair tends to lose moisture, which can lead to static electricity and those pesky frizzies. Applying a small amount of hair oil can work wonders. These oils act as a natural barrier, sealing in moisture and preventing the hair from absorbing excess humidity from the air. By adding a protective layer, they not only keep your hair hydrated but also reduce friction between individual strands, effectively taming static and leaving your locks looking smooth and sleek, even on the windiest fall days. Just remember, a little goes a long way, so start with a few drops and work it through your hair for a frizz-free, static-resistant finish.

Living Proof – No Frizz Vanishing Oil

A fast-absorbing oil that vanishes into strands to hydrate and block humidity, leaving hair smooth and shiny.

Taking care of your hair during the fall doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With these simple tips and adjustments to your hair care routine, you can ensure your locks remain luscious and vibrant throughout the season. Embrace the cozy and colorful days of autumn with healthy, gorgeous hair. 🧡

When Should You Wash Your Hair Twice? 

Hair washing is an essential aspect of personal hygiene, and many people follow a regular hair-washing routine to maintain the cleanliness and health of their hair. However, there are times when one wash is not enough, and you may need to wash your hair twice to achieve optimal results.

How to wash your hair twice for optimal results:

  1. First Wash: Use a Clarifying Shampoo to loosen up product and oil buildup.
  2. Second Wash: Use a Shampoo tailored to your hair type to clean your scalp and hair shaft.
  3. Condition Your Hair: Use a Moisturizing Conditioner, apply midshaft to ends.

The decision to wash your hair twice should depend on several factors, including your hair type, your lifestyle, and your hair’s current condition. Here are some scenarios when you may need to wash your hair twice:

If You Go 3 or More Days Between Washing.

If you go 3 or more days between washes you could benefit from washing your hair twice. Depending on the level and nature of your daily activities, cleansing once will in most cases not fully clean out all of the buildup. Our hair collects product buildup, dust, dirt, sweat and oils. Cleansing twice will allow the buildup to wash away leaving your hair fresh and clean before conditioning.

If You use Dry Shampoo Regularly.

While dry shampoo is a convenient way to refresh your hair and absorb excess oil without the use of water, it’s important to understand that it does not actually clean your hair or scalp.

Dry shampoo works by absorbing oil and other impurities from your hair, which can build up over time if you rely on it too often. Washing your hair thoroughly is important for removing dirt, sweat, and buildup of oils and products from your hair and scalp. This can help prevent clogged hair follicles, scalp irritation, and even hair loss.

So even if you use dry shampoo, washing your hair twice at least every few days or as often as recommended by your hair type and lifestyle. This will ensure that your scalp and hair stay healthy and clean.

If Your Hair Gets Very Oily.

If your hair gets very oily, washing it twice can help to remove excess oil and buildup from your scalp and hair. The first wash will help to break down and remove the excess oil, dirt, and product buildup that can accumulate on your scalp and hair. The second wash allows the shampoo to fully penetrate your hair and scalp, ensuring that all traces of oil and buildup are removed.

However, it’s important not to over-wash your hair, as this can strip your hair and scalp of its natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation. The frequency with which you should wash your hair depends on your hair type, lifestyle, and individual needs.

If you have very oily hair, you may need to wash it more frequently than someone with dry hair. It’s also important to use a shampoo that’s formulated for your hair type and to avoid using too much conditioner or other hair products that can contribute to oil buildup.

In conclusion, washing your hair twice can be beneficial in certain situations, but it’s not necessary to do so every time you wash your hair. Pay attention to your hair’s condition and adjust your washing routine accordingly. With proper care and attention, you can maintain healthy and beautiful hair.

The Best Blow Dry Products

Blow drying your hair can be a fantastic way to achieve a polished and professional look, but it can also be a real challenge if you don’t have the right products. Fortunately, there are a number of high-quality blow dry products on the market that can help you get the perfect blowout every time. Let’s take a closer look at some of our favorite blow dry products and what makes them so effective.

1. Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner

To get a perfect blowout you must start with a clean and smooth canvas. Shampoo and conditioner are important for a blowout for several reasons. First and foremost, they help to cleanse and hydrate your hair, which is essential for creating a smooth and polished finish. When you shampoo your hair, you remove any dirt, oil, and product buildup that can weigh down your hair and make it harder to style. Conditioner, on the other hand, helps to nourish and moisturize your hair, making it softer and more manageable.

Kevin Murphy Blow Dry Wash and Rinse: Features anti-breakage technology to help strengthen and nourish hair. Designed to extend your blowout for a long lasting style.

2. Heat Protectant Spray

One of the most important blow dry products to invest in is a heat protectant spray. These sprays are designed to create a barrier between your hair and the heat of your blow dryer, reducing damage and breakage. They’re easy to use and can make a big difference in the overall health and appearance of your hair. 

Ever Smooth Blow Dry Spray: Smoothing, heat-activated style extender creates the ultimate silky, smooth blowout with softness, volume and humidity resistance for a frizz-free finish.

Ever Bounce Blow Dry Spray: Lasting hold, heat-activated style extender creates smooth body with bounce and humidity resistance for a frizz-free finish.

Ever Thicken Blow Dry Spray: Thickening, heat-activated style extender creates thicker, fuller hair and humidity resistance for a frizz-free finish.

3. Volumising Moose

If you’re looking to add volume and body to your hair, a volumizing mousse can be a great option. This product is designed to be applied to wet hair before blow drying, and it works by lifting the hair at the roots to create a fuller, more voluminous look.

Body Builder: Volumising mousse that creates beautiful body without any sticky crunches, just flexible fullness and hold.

4. Smoothing Serum

For those with frizzy or curly hair, a smoothing serum can be a game-changer. These products are designed to help tame frizz and flyaways, leaving your hair looking sleek and polished. They’re typically applied to dry hair before blow drying, and they can also help protect your hair from humidity and other environmental factors.

No Frizz Vanishing Oil: A fast-absorbing oil that vanishes into strands to hydrate and block humidity, leaving hair smooth and shiny.

In conclusion, the best blow dry products are those that help you achieve your desired style while also protecting and nourishing your hair. Whether you’re looking to add volume, tame frizz, or create a sleek, polished look, there’s a product out there that can help.
