In need of a Heat Protectant.

ohtashohtash Posts: 90Registered Users
I've been meaning to get a heat protectant for my hair. I've been transitioning for 6 months now and I've only straighten my hair twice. I normally blow dry whenever I would wear French braids. Even though I use the warm setting, it's still good to get a heat protectant. I just don't know which one to get. What are some good ones out there?

    Hair Type: ?
    Tons of whirls and curls and coils on my head. My hair's sometimes my best friend and other times we're at odds. But either way it's curls to the end. No need for a relaxer cause there's no reason to stress, my tresses are at their best

    Yea, I keep hearing that Grapeseed oil is good but I just thought that it would fry my hair. Has anyone one used Grapeseed as a protectant?

    I've used grapeseed oil on my hair to flatiron it, my hair didn't fry, it was silky smooth. Btw any oil that has a high heat tolerance is a good heat protectant. You can google organic oils that are heat protectants, there's many out there.

    Also Beautiful Textures Curly to Straight Silkener oil is a good heat protectant. I did a product review on it this morning, check product reviews on the forum.
