While heat protectants may not be the most glamorous product we sell at Prep, they're definitely one of the most important when it comes to your hair health. If you style your hair with a hot tool, or blow dry on the regular, you're going to want to start including a heat protectant into your routine. These lightweight but mighty sprays and creams will keep your hair safe from burning, dehydration, and dullness.
