Much praise has been given to the L’Oreal Paris Elnett Heat Protect Styling Volume Spray. Spokesmodel Cheryl Cole and her mountain of hair look great in the ads but I had doubts on its efficacy for curly and afro hair.
The spray contains Xylose, “a thermo-protective ingredient it shields the fibre from the harmful effects of excessive heat and protects the fibre from drying out, enhancing softness and shine.”
I tried the Elnett Heat Protect Styling Volume Spray which claims to give ‘high heat protection as well as long-lasting volume and voluptuous locks.’
Despite my earlier reservations I have to say that the Elnett Heat Protect Styling Volume Spray is actually pretty good. After washing I used my beloved Herbal Essences Split End Protection Cream (I can’t stress enough how amazing this stuff is) a few pumps of Pantene Volume Booster Spray Gel and 3 sprays (all over the hair) of Elnett Heat Protect Styling Volume Spray.
That might sound like a lot of product but they are all very lightweight and don’t weigh down the hair at all.
I blow dried my hair with my BaByliss Big Hair for volume and bounce and lightly skimmed over it with my straighteners. I always sleep with my hair in a ponytail with the ends in a curler but after a few days the curler seems to stop working and the ends of my hair are completely straight.
This is my hair seven days after using Elnett Heat Protect Styling Volume Spray and I’ve not done anything to my hair since washing it.
Just a few pumps of the spray has done a great job in not only protecting my hair from the heat but also in helping to hold the style. My hair is completely non crispy or crunchy, it’s very soft to the touch.
If you’re looking for a reasonably priced product to protect and boost your hair then L’Oreal Paris Elnett Heat Protect Styling Volume Spray is just what you need. And it’s less than a tenner!
