I’ve got several cruelty free heat protectants for hair to share with you today. It’s important to protect your hair from heat if you blow dry, curl or flat iron your hair. If you don’t, you’ll end up with fried locks that you may have to chop off! And since not everyone wants short hair (though you know I think it’s cute because I rocked a pixie for a long time), to prevent that from happening you need to invest in a heat protectant. (See my tips for how to grow out a pixie cut.)

9 Cruelty Free Heat Protectants for Hair

This is a dual-phase spray that protects against excessive heat that can damage color-treated hair. The top phase protects against heat while the bottom conditioners hair with Quinoa Color repair. You must shake well before use!
Paul Mitchell Express Style Hot Off the Press (Leaping Bunny Certified)
In addition to protecting your tresses, it provides flexible hold and fights frizz.
Not Your Mother’s Beat the Heat Thermal Styling Spray

Phyto PHYTOKÉRATINE Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray
This is supposed to protect hair from the heat, detangle, add softness and it even goes so far as to claim to repair dry, damaged hair.
