Seductively Straight Heat Protection Intensive Cream | Herbal Essences

13 comments

Hi lovely ladies, hope you’re having a great weekend!

Today’s review is about one product I never miss out – heat protection. I use a lot of flat irons and blow dryers to style my hair. Your hair keeps the shape in which it cools down which is why flat irons, curling rods and blow dryers help you create those glamorous hair styles and looks. But heat styling can create problems for your hair too. The long term consequences of heat styling are hair breakage, lack of shine and split ends.  But you can avoid the damage by applying protective products and following a few simple rules.  Heat protection products not only prevent heat damage to your hair but help your hair look healthier.  
 
Like I mentioned I’m addicted to flat irons but that leaves me with split ends all the time hence very frequent hair trims. This year I promised myself to take better care of my hair and make them grow longer, healthier. This includes hair trims once split ends start appearing (not every two months), hair oiling, heat protection serums and creams plus hair masks. This time I purchased Herbal Essences Seductively Straight Heat Protection Intensive Cream. Herbal Essences is a brand I haven’t quite experimented with. I have read numerous reviews about this brand however. After going through the description I thought it was worth a try hence the purchase.

Herbal Essences Seductively Straight Heat Protection Intensive Cream is part of the Seductively Straight range from Herbal Essences and the formula contains Pink Lily and Asian Silk. This range is meant for dry/damaged hair. Seductively Straight Heat Protection Intensive Cream comes in a very pretty bright pink bottle with a pump. It’s a leave-in product with medium creamy texture. I really appreciate the pumps since this kind of serves as a scale for the quantity of product you want to use. Once I’m out of the shower I let my hair dry naturally to an extent (I’d say 30%). Then, I take two pumps of this product, rub it gently between my palms and apply throughout my hair emphasizing on the hair tips where split ends show up.  Since I do not want my hair to feel really heavy I use most of the product on the bottom half of my hair. This will instantly make your hair feel smooth. If you need more protection with no heavy feeling try heat protection sprays around the crown of your hair. I leave my hair like that for a minute or two and then go ahead with either the hair straightener or the blow dryer. 

The results are incredible. Not only Herbal Essences Seductively Straight Heat Protection Intensive Cream makes my hair beautifully straight it also makes it incredibly soft and lustrous! Since my hair showed up a few split ends here and there before I start using this cream I’m keeping a close eye if this cream will help minimize the damage as much as it can. But till now the results are satisfying and I’m glad I made the purchase. This is definitely a re-purchase for me since it has an affordable price tag as well.

With the right hair products and a few basic rules you can also minimize hair damage. Here are my top 5 tips:

ª Hair must be dry before you use heat to reshape it. If heat is applied to wet hair it damages the hair structure!

ª Applying hair styling products before styling your hair will protect your hair from heat damage.
ª Applying heat protection products on wet hair ensure even distribution of the product.
ª Avoid styling tools which expose metal parts to your hair at all costs! Ceramic surfaces are a better option.
ª Have a hair care routine once a week to deeply nourish your hair and make them look healthier.

Until next time. ©©

    1. Thanks dear!
      Yes I agree. I've been using the bloggers Dynamics view & it's hard for alot of people to navigate through it. I plan to get a professional website created as soon as I can. The only reason I use it is because it looks different.
      I really appreciate your feedback. xx

  2. Oh gosh you just reminded me that I need a hair mask to use once a week! I can't remember buying anything from that range, I've recently stumbled on a L'Oréal heat protectant that's given me quite a few good hair days but I might try this one just to compare since it's an affordable product. Good tips! :)
