Hair Products: Heat Protectant Under $10 for Year Supply

Do you regularly blow dry your hair and use styling tools? Repeated use can wreak havoc on your luscious locks. When you apply heat to your hair, you are evaporating

water molecules within your strands. This can cause your hair to frizz and dry out as well as break down the keratin in your hair. Keratin is what gives our hair strength and texture.

With the use of a heat protectant on your hair before styling, you can reduce the damage heat can do. There are many options of salon quality products to choose from, but most are very costly and contain many chemicals. Did you know you can achieve the same results using Sweet Almond Oil? The oil adds a barrier between your styling tool and your hair, to seal in moisture and get rid of the frizz. You are probably thinking your hair will look like an oil slick right about now. The secret is to only use 1-2 drops of the oil each day on combed damp hair. Apply with hands at the ends of the hair first working your way up to the roots last. Comb hair to distribute the oil evenly, then style as normal. To make measuring out drops easier and avoid from using too much, use glass dropper bottles.

To further reduce damage to the hair, use tools that use the lowest amount of heat needed to get your desired look. I have longer fine hair that breaks easily. I have been using the Revlon One Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush since it dries and straightens hair quickly at the same time.

Essential oils, when properly diluted, can be used to strengthen hair, control dandruff, and even promote hair growth. Simply add 12 drops of desired essential oil to 2 oz of Sweet Almond Oil a glass dropper bottle.

Cedarwood: helps treat dry scalp, dandruff, and hair loss
