In need of heat protection for flat ironing and styling my au naturel hair, I went to Sally Beauty Supply to find a low priced heat protector to use. I normally use Sally’s Generic Brand of BioSilk for a heat protector which is more than I had available to spend this time around. Other than that, I would have readily grabbed Sally’s Generic Brand of BioSilk.
I came across two small size heat protection sprays that were priced under $4.00 before tax. I decided to try Silk Elements® With Silk Protein MegaSilk® Heat Protection Spray:
which was lower than I expected when checking out. At the register it rang up to $1.99 before tax for a 2fl. oz (59 mL) spray, with a total price of $2.11, a great deal and it was all that I needed at the moment. I just needed to straighten my hair.
After washing and conditioning my hair, I prayed over the product and sprayed it on my damp hair. I proceeded to blow dry my hair.
1. I did not have my paddle brush with me. (It preps your hair for heat styling when blow drying it. It makes it nice and tangle free.)
2. I wasn’t using the heat protection that my hair is used to.
3. I was using a new flat iron.
Needless to say, I wasn’t satisfied with the results of the ends of my hair and the way the product made my hair feel. It had a more producty (not a real word, but you understand what I mean), rough, result rather than smooth, silk result that I am used to when using Sally Beauty Supply’s Generic Brand of BioSilk. The generic brand of BioSilk coats your hair. It’s thicker in formula and weight . And you have to pour it verses than spray it.
The Silk Elements® With Silk Protein MegaSilk® Heat Protection Spray states:
- Helps protects from heat damage
- Use with flat irons, blow-dryer, or any heated appliance
- Provides a luxurious shine
- For hair as soft and smooth as silk.
I personally did not experience a luxurious shine. It may be a product that works best on relaxed hair.
I tried the heat protection spray again on the same shampooed and condition set of hair, with small sections of my hair and applied the spray directly to each section and the ends of my hair within the section before flat ironing, it was noticeably straighter in some sections, but not the desired look that I am used to and desired.
As for know it is a product that is a last resort;an it’s all that I have to use option.
