What is a heat protectant?


A heat protectant is a product for hair designed and formulated to minimise damage during heat styling. When applied before heat styling, a heat protectant forms a shielding layer around each hair strand, effectively providing hair protection from heat. This protective barrier locks in essential moisture, reducing the risk of breakage and frizz while preserving the vibrancy of your hair colour. Incorporating a heat protectant for hair into your heat styling routine is a crucial step in maintaining the overall health and integrity of your hair.

 Do you apply Redken heat protectant on damp or dry hair? 


While damp hair readily absorbs moisture, Redken heat protection products can also work wonders on dry hair. Simply apply the Redken heat protectant to your hair, avoiding the scalp, before using any heat styling tools, such as blow dryers, curling irons, and straightening irons. For even distribution, comb through your hair with the Redken heat protection products.

What is a hair primer? 


Think of a hair primer as the equivalent of a makeup primer for your hair, prepping your strands much like a makeup primer preps your skin. A hair primer serves as the ideal foundation for all your additional hair styling products. As a lightweight, leave-in styling product, not only a hair primer simplifies the hairstyling process but also cuts down drying time, resulting in a more efficient styling routine. Beyond that, a hair primer acts as a heat protectant against heat damage and environmental elements while imparting a smoothing effect. A hair primer helps you achieve a flawless finish.


What does a hair primer do for hair? 


A hair primer acts as a safeguard, shielding your hair from potential harm caused by heat styling while simultaneously reducing the risk of breakage and split ends during detangling and brushing. A hair primer provides essential conditioning and hydration, resulting in softer, shinier, and more manageable locks, much like the effects of conditioners. Furthermore, a primer for hair creates a protective barrier against humidity, effectively combating frizz and flyaways. Beyond that, a styling primer for hair contributes to elevating your hair's texture, volume, and definition, making it a versatile addition to your hairstyling regimen.

How often should I use a hair primer? 


We suggest incorporating a hair primer into your routine for each heat styling session. A hair primer should be applied to your hair when it's freshly washed and still damp, right after you completely cleanse your hair with a shampoo and a conditioner, as a seamless part of your styling routine.
