Have you ever heard the saying, “women change their minds like they change their hairstyles”? That couldn’t be more true for me — about my hair that is! I change my hair all the time.

If you are anything like me, trying to get ready in the morning can be extremely hectic. Most of my time is taken up washing my hair, blow-drying and styling it with a flat-iron straighter or thermal curling iron.

From all of that styling and exposure to hot tools, at one point in my life, my hair was terribly brittle and malnourished. But after getting my hair treated by a hairdresser and changing what products I use, it is healthier, stronger and longer.

After seeing just how much daily styling damages my hair, I am always careful to use a heat-protectant alongside the hot tools. I consider it an essential to have in my beauty arsenal.

In the past I have tried a number of brands that were harsh on my hair, making it sound, feel and look “fried.” I sampled everything — the best bargains to the most expensive brands, but nothing seemed to work. At least not until I found Silk Elements MegaSilk Olive Heat Protection Spray. Available at Sally’s Beauty Supply for just $8.79, the spray is made to protect your hair from damage caused by heated styling appliances like a blow dryer, crimper and flat iron.

There are two versions of this product: one with olive oil (green bottle) and one without olive oil (cream bottle). This spray can either be used on damp hair right before blow drying or on dry hair before styling. The best part of this protective spray is that it is super light and doesn’t weigh down your hair or give it an oily sheen. Plus, it has an aroma similar to that of fresh roses.

It restored moisture and luster to my hair so much that I can go months without getting a perm. This product is a must have if you use any type of hot styling tool on your hair. It can also be used on synthetic hair, so it can be useful on wigs or hair extensions.  While it is a bit pricier than other similar products, it is well worth it.
