With plenty of polished looks to embrace this season, find our favorite heat protectants that can help polish any style whether you’re using a blow dryer, diffuser, straightening or curling iron!

For normal to thick hair
Keune Style Blowout Gelee $28
Unless you are using a diffuser to dry your hair, those with thicker hair, often need to use higher heat and tension to get the desired look. Moisture balance with this hair type is crucial because if hair becomes dry and damaged it can lead to more frizz. This is why heat protection is essential anytime you style. Keune Style Blowout Gelee is the ideal choice to add lightweight body and shine while speeding up blow-dry prep work.

When you need more oomph
Absolute Volume Thermal Protector $35
One of the biggest hurdles when it comes to styling hair is adding long-lasting volume. If you use too many products, it could weigh the hair down, not enough and it will instantly deflate. For the perfect mix, try Care Absolute Volume Thermal Protector. Not only will it protect the hair against thermal styling, but this product also features added proteins to ensure a flexible hold. It works with the help of Provitamin B5 which penetrates the hair shaft to thicken the inner structure while also nourishing it from the inside out. This results in incredibly full, voluminous hair without the risk of being weighed down.
