Hairspray: Before or After You Style?

It seems like every time you get your hair professionally done, the stylist uses that professional curling wand and sprays a ton of product on your hair. For many, it's hard to even keep up with what product goes on when, and what the purpose of each one is.

Hairspray is known to be a “finishing touch”: that mist that you spray all over your hair before you're ready to cut the bathroom light off and walk away from the mirror. It's the strong smelling spray that, when misused, tends to leave hair feeling stiff and straw-like. So... are there other ways to use hair spray? When it comes to curling your hair, you'll find that there's more than just one way to make hair spray work for you in your curling efforts.

Hairspray and...

Some hair sprays are great to spray on just before using that curling iron, it's true. The spray and the heat work together to create a strong hold that takes days to undo, depending on hair type. However, keep in mind that you're doing yourself a major disservice by only utilizing hair spray before curling. If you're going to spray your hair before you curl, ensure that you're spraying on top of an already applied heat protectant. Otherwise? Your curl might hold longer, but that long lasting curl comes at a price. Taking the time to spritz on heat protectant will ensure that your curl stays, and your hair stays healthy.

HSI offers an Argan Oil Heat Protectant for all hair styles. It's your ticket to getting that vibrant, silky, shiny, healthy style that you've always wanted, and for keeping your hair free from damage. Our heat protectant is a weightless mist that's meant to be applied before heated styling (and before hair spray), and can protect hair from heat exposure up to 450 degrees. This product can be used as a serum for conditioning to give you optimal final results, as its infused with highly concentrated antioxidant rich argan oil and shine boosting vitamins.
