Tresemme Heat Defence Serum: (£4.38)*
Personally, I've never seen the importance of using a heat protector, I'm one of those people that tends to just dry and style their hair using heat and not think about the damage. I actually rarely use any styling products on my hair apart from Morrocan Oil and a tiny bit of hair spray. I always feel like too many products weigh down my long and fine hair and can leave it looking flat and greasy. However Recently I've been much more open to trying out haircare products,and been surprised at the incredible difference in my hair since updating my "hair care routine".
Tresemme Heat Defence Serum claims to protect hair up to 230C, smooth and fight frizz, help damaged hair from previous heat styling as well as seal in shine. I use a Babyliss Conical Wand on 220C (the highest heat) normally to style my hair so this product is perfect for it. Last week I had a massive hair disaster with my hair dryer which resulted in my hair looking like a dry, frizzy, unmanageable mess. I've noticed if I dont dry my hair properly using a hair dryer attachment and a rounded brush it looks terrible. So to try and counteract this, I dampened it a bit and added a few pumps of the Tresemme Heat Defence Serum and then blow dried it straight using a round brush. The Heat Defence Serum smoothed out all my flyaways and ends, and left my hair looked so soft and shiny without weighed down. I've never used a heat protectant or a hair serum before so I dont have the prior knowledge to compare this to another product. However I've really enjoyed using it and probably will keep this in my hair routine for the time being. Its not done anything bad to my hair so far! I tend to apply this to the ends and mid lengths of my hair while its wet before I dry it. I have also tried using it as a serum to add shine after I've styled it, which worked well at keeping my hair sleek.
Tresemme Heat Defence is £4.38 and you can purchase it from Boots, Superdrug and all major Supermarkets
