Let’s face it – no matter how good we are, most of us want to get out of the house with bouncy, beautiful hair.
Unfortunately, this effect often requires the help of harmful heating systems such as blow dryers, curling irons and straight tools. If you are no stranger to these tools, you will probably use some kind of protective spray to avoid heat loss.
While this is a great idea to protect your routes from damage, there is a better, more natural option that does not contain harsh chemicals.
Avoid heat spray chemicals.
Most commercial heat-resistant sprays (as well as shampoos, conditioners, and other cosmetics and beauty products) contain toxic chemicals that can be inhaled through your pores. Here are some common ingredients that can be dangerous to your health.
Acrylates, or copolymers, l. Used to make a film on your hair. They are also used in nail polish and other hair styling products to promote “hold”. Unfortunately, they are also listed as possibly carcinogenic.
2. Quartenium 70
Also called “frames”, this class of chemicals contain positively charged particles that protect hair. Can provide However, they may not improve your health: EWG Popular Quote lists quartenium 70 as a potential immunotoxin, and is linked to developmental and reproductive issues.
Dimethicone is a type of silicone that is often used in cosmetics, including heat-resistant sprays. Silicone helps protect the sheen, while also protecting the hair color from heat. Like Kot, however, Dimethicone has been declared harmful by the Environmental Canada Household Substances List and has been advised by the EWG to ban cosmetics.
4. Hydroxypropyl polysaccharide (hydrolyzed wheat protein)
Interestingly, peptides found in wheat protein are also common in hair styling products. If you are gluten-free or paleo, this should be avoided – although the reaction of gluten to these peptides is minimal. Nevertheless, heavy metals such as arsenic have been found in hydrolyzed wheat protein. Studies have suggested that hydrolyzed wheat protein be kept away from your nose, mouth and any damaged skin, which are sprayed with a heat-protective spray so close that you can accidentally inhale it.
Ingredients to protect against natural heat
Fortunately, you don’t have to give up heating. Natural, moisturizing oils and essential oils can help stabilize and nourish the soles while providing heat barrier. The breakdown of the ingredients included in the heat-protective spray in our home. And why they work.
We start with the coconut oil base in this recipe because of its heat tolerance. Just like when you are cooking, if you are heating the oil, you want to make sure that it does not harm your body (or your broths).
Another great reason to use coconut oil on your hair is this: Coconut oil can penetrate deep inside your hair shaft to provide essential fatty acids, lauric acid, deep protection and moisture. For these reasons, coconut oil is great for your skin care routine, especially if you have acne or acne.
Almond oil also stands up well against heat, which works well when using items such as curling irons and straighteners. Also, it contains plenty of nourishing vitamin E!
Although there are no direct studies that show that essential oils can protect the hair in particular from heat, many people claim that they help keep your hair and scalp strong and balance oil production. Help maintain Studies have shown that geranium oil, which is included in this prescription, helps hair to grow faster.
We also use Clary Sage in this blend as it is known to strengthen hair and make it more resistant to breakage. Like geranium, studies have shown that its linoleic estate content may be helpful in enhancing hair growth.

Other tips to strengthen your path
With the protection of the situation, you may be able to strengthen your hair from the root by making sure that your diet is rich in certain nutrients. It can ultimately help you fight heat and breakage from the inside out.
Here are the most important vitamins that you need to turn broken hair into strong, shiny locks.
- Vitamin A Vitamin A deficiency can lead to hair loss. Vitamin A helps make sebum, which helps keep hair moisturized. To keep your hair naturally shiny, eat more egg yolks and yellow veggies such as carrots and pumpkins.
- B vitamins. Similarly, studies have linked broken hair and hair loss to a lack of B vitamins, especially biotin. Complete the B-Complex or give you meat and seafood.
- Vitamin C. Vitamin C is very important for the production of collagen, which is an important ingredient in our skin and nails. Try making bone broth, eat gelatin, or consider taking a collagen supplement.
- Vitamin D If you are low in vitamin D, you may experience hair loss. Get a healthy sun exposure diet every day. That means just 10-15 minutes without any sunscreen!
- Use the right product. Natural products have a reputation for not being so effective, but I turned to change it all! My line of Valencian hair products is not only a safe option for families, but we have designed them to project deep into the scalp and scalp, which are like “superfoods” for hair.
