I'm a big fan and pusher of heat protection. Today's heat products (flat irons, curling irons, and even hair driers) are super hot and can leave hair dry, brittle, and broken if a heat protection product is not used on a regular basis. Some of the biggest complaints that I hear about heat protection, especially from women that wear their hair very soft and straight, is that the heat protection products can leave their hair feeling stiff and dull. Well, Pravana has answered that concern with their Keratin Fusion Thermal Insulator. Caution: you may fall in love with your hair!
How to Use It!
Using Pravana Keratin Fusion Thermal Insulator couldn't be easier. One of the things I like the best about it is that the product is easily distributed through the hair after spraying. I spray a few pumps onto wet hair and comb through prior to drying with a blow drier. Then I spritz a few more sprays on dry hair before using a flat iron or curling iron and comb through.
One word of caution: keep the product off the scalp, as it can be a little oily and can give a greasy appearance if sprayed directly on the scalp.
Why Pravana's Thermal Insulator is Different
I've used a lot of heat protection products, and have had a lot of success with them for different reason's. Pravana's Thermal Insulator is different because of how very soft it makes the hair. For this reason, I would not recommend this product for curling hair, as it's so soft that it makes a curl hard to hold. However, the softness of this product is absolutely perfect for straightening hair with a flat iron (especially if your hair is course, brittle, or dry).
It's important to remember that a little goes a long way with this product as well. It comes in a 3.7 ounce bottle, but what seems like a little bit of product really goes a long way. My first bottle lasted me nearly two months (and I flat iron my hair every day).
One more great bonus to this product is that it helps protect your hair color with UV protection! The sun can be harsh on your colored hair, so it's great to have a product that provides some protection from the damage of the sun.
If you flat iron your hair regularly, and love your hair to have a lot of movement and shine, without feeling like you have product in it, I highly recommend Pravana's Keratin Fusion Thermal Insulator.
