Let’s Chat: Thermal Sprays

Since it's the perfect time to update your hair tools, we figured it was important to shine a light on something some of us like to ignore... THERMAL SPRAYS! We get it, it's a pain to add one more step to your hair routine but trust us, thermal sprays are a MUST if you're using hot tools! Not only do they protect your hair from the high temperatures, they also offer tons of other benefits that will aid in your styling. We met up with some of our talented stylists across Canada for some of their go-to's for heat protection and why they love them.

Joico Ironclad Thermal Protectant

The Joico Ironclad thermal protection spray protects your hair from heat up to 450 degrees but that’s not all, it also saves your hair from frizz and fly always for 72 hours! This thermal spray also has a light flexible hold to help keep your styles in all day! Its also super lightweight and has no sticky residue feeling after you apply. What it does offer is beautiful shine to make your hair look happy and healthy. If you’re looking for a thermal spray that does it all, you’ll love this product as much as I do!

AG Firewall

Something that I love about the AG Firewall spray is that it’s extremely lightweight and won’t weigh down fine hair. Although it’s super light, it still contains all the added bonuses of argon oil to really hydrate your hair and help your iron to glide effortlessly through your hair. It’ll also give you amazing shine while protecting your hair AND making it healthier all at once! I also love that it’s an aerosol so it sprays on in a fine mist without leaving any wet spots and really quick drying time. If that’s not enough, every bottle gives back by contributing to the empowerment and education of women in Africa!

CHI 44 Iron Guard

Chi Iron Guard 44 is a thermal styling spray that helps strengthen and protect the hair from the high heats of thermal styling tools. It is a weightless, non-aerosol, paraben free product that works from the inside out, making it great for all hair types! It contains ionic and cationic hydration interlink technology and allows you to create multiple textures with outstanding style memory that can be regenerated. The positively charged silk molecules interlock into hair's natural structure to build strength and resilience and to improve moisture and shine. Oh and did I mention, it smells fantastic? It is a must try product if you are doing any kind of heat styling!
