Although there was no physical pain involved, losing my locks hurt worse than any other part of the ordeal.
I never thought much about my hair's health before that. But after journeying to no-hair hell and back, I do everything possible to protect my mighty mane. That's why I wanted to try Salon Grafix's new Maximum Heat Protect Spray, the first 450-degree thermal protection spray on the market.
What the Experts Say
Salon Grafix's new 450o Maximum Heat Protect Spray helps minimize the damage that can be caused by blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons than reach temperatures of up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
It includes VP/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer, a unique, patented ingredient that improves your hair's hold while conditioning it. Suitable for all hair types, the spray provides long-lasting body and better stiffness, even in 90-degree humidity.
What I Tested
I tried Salon Grafix's four-ounce, aerosol 450o Maximum Heat Protect Spray.
What I like
This hair defender delivers protection from extreme heat, conditions and builds body. (Talk about a multitasker!) Now, I can use that 450-degree setting on my flat iron without fear of frying.
I just spray the protector evenly on my dry hair; then flat iron and style as usual. It's that easy. You can also spray it on wet hair before blow drying but I'm more concerned about damage from my flat iron.
This light, conditioning spray doesn't weigh hair down so it's great for fine, thin hair like mine. When combined with my jumbo Velcro rollers, it helps plump up my hair, adding much-needed fullness, bounce and shine. You know that can be addictive so I'm happy that this one's affordable and right-sized for use at home or on the road.
