Beat the Heat
Beat the heat is an understatement right now with temperatures soaring here in Kansas, topping out in the low 100s! Hot, right? If you use your oven or grill, you likely bake or cook most things at about 350 degrees. That’s also hot. Can you imagine how hot 450 degrees is? If your hair could talk when you are putting hot tools on it, it would be begging for some protection! Enter heat protectant products! We have a collection of heat protecting products at Hays Academy of Hair Design, with campuses in Hays and Salina Kansas. We are committed to helping you find the right one for your hair type and your styling regimen. Whether you are using a blow dryer, flat iron, wand or curling irons, it is essential to protect your hair from the heat!
Why Use a Heat Protectant
Why use a heat protectant? If there is no barrier between the hair shaft and the heat, it could cause crucial damage, including drying the hair out, making it brittle, or even worse…breakage. It’s just not worth it! These products are all under $20, and are professional products that Hays Academy stands behind. Here are some of our favorites:
Fab Me **STUDENT FAVORITE** ($18) – A leave in conditioning spray that provides SO many benefits! Heat damage protection, split end smoother, color fade protection, static reduction, detangling, protection from the environment, and more. Mist on clean, damp hair before styling.
