Hello everyone! Sorry it's been so long since my last post! I'll try to not let it happen again. ;-) I also wanna wish one of my favorite youtube gurus, Elle (allthatglitters21) a happy birthday! She turned 21 on monday. ♥
Anywhooo, today I'm reviewing an excellent drugstore find, FX Special Effects Flat Iron Spray. This spray says it "Works to smooth dry damaged hair by sealing and protecting the hair from harmful thermal styling. Smooths and conditions, while providing a heat memory thermal protective shield to your hair for flat iron or curling iron." I gotta say, I LOVE this stuff! It's my one of my favorite flat iron sprays. It really smooths and straightens even the coarsest hair. I've even used it on very damaged hair, and the result was beautifully straight, shiny, healthy looking hair. I definitely recommend giving this spray a try.
Its ingredients include Water, PVP/VA Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, PVP, Carbomer, and Panthenol. PVP/VA Copolymer is a complex hair fixative, which gives great flexibility to hair, and is a very common ingredient in hairspray. Go check your product labels and see how many have it, you might be surprised. Propylene Glycol is nothing new, and PVP or Polyvinylpyrrolidone is another ingredient that gives hold and repels moisture, similar to PVP/VA Copolymer. Carbomer stabilizes, and thickens a product; It will also promote shelf life. And Panthenol as I explained in my Halo post, is Vitamin B5--which is very good at conditioning and filling in damage on the hair shaft.
I feel like this may be a bit too heavy for fine hair, but other than that, I think most every hair type can use this spray. The directions say: "Dry hair completely. Shake Flat Iron Spray well in order to mix ingredients thoroughly. Spray evenly on section by section evenly throughout and smooth the hair with straightening irons." When I use it, I spray it on dry hair. I spray it on every section before I flat iron it, focusing more on the midshaft and ends, where more of the damage is. Have you used this product before? Comment and tell me how you use it, and what you think of it. =)
FX Special Effects Flat Iron Spray comes in a 6 fl oz or 177 ml bottle, and can be found in most drugstores for around $6-$8.
Take care of your hair, and be sure to comment! ♥
