Defy Damage: 6 Thermal Sprays to Use With Your Hair Tools

Lorie Knickle November 17, 2019

Are the ends of your hair are looking frazzled and kinky? Is your hair is dull or unmanageable? Maybe your colour is fading despite using colour-safe shampoo and conditioner. All are symptoms of heat damage. When we apply heat to our hair the proteins that keep hair strong and healthy can be compromised, leading to noticeable issues. This doesn't necessarily mean you should skip the hot hair tools altogether. It means you should take action to prevent damage. Your best line of defense is a high quality protection spray. Here are some of our top picks!

AG Hair Limited Edition One Girl Can Firewall

Thermal Spray

A popular choice for all hair types, Firewall is infused with argan oil to decrease snags when styling with tools and leaves hair oh-so shiny. For each can of Limited Edition One Girl Can Firewall sold, AG Hair will donate to One Girl Can. This charity provides funding and mentorship to girls in Africa seeking education.
