I had never bought a heat protecting spray before but heard so much about them on YouTube so thought I’d look into them. I have started straightening my hair a lot more lately and have been quite conscious of the fact it’s drying out my hair, so I decided to look around my local shops for one.
Surprisingly I had quite a hard time finding one so when I found “Leo Bancroft's Totally Protected Heat Defence Spray” I bought it without really researching it at all.

My initial thought on the heat spray is that it stank! I can’t stand the smell and end up needing to spray perfume in my hair to mask the chemical like scent.
Now I can push through the scent because if a product is good enough then it won't matter. However I am not convinced that this product does anything at all. I mean my hair doesn't feel dry and it's not breaking a whole lot. But I'm not convinced that this is due to using the heat spray. I have one major problem with this spray and that is that it made my roots extremely greasy! I sprayed it on the tips of my hair and then brushed it through before straightening and mid-morning I noticed my hair looked awful. I had used no other product on my hair and only washed it the night before.
One thing I do like about the product is the packaging. I like simple and effective packaging and this product has that. On the whole I don't think I will repurchase this heat spray. I think I might try the TRESemmé one or Dove as I've heard good things about them.
Do you have a good heat spray that is tried and true? I'm a tad hesitant to go out and buy another one now :( Let me know!
PS: I love the way my new signature matches the bottle! haha
