I was on the lookout for heat defense spray or cream or lotion for a long time. I was wanting to buy John Frieda or the L’Oreal one, but couldn’t get the chance to actually try one.
I came to know about Sunsilk Keratinology range through a TV commercial. When I saw it, I was like “wow,” keratins with nano particles to reconstruct your hair “awesome,” but I was disappointed to see Sunsilk behind it. :hihi: I do not have best experiences with Sunsilk shampoos, so :shutmouth:
When I saw “Sunsilk Keratinology” in the supermarket, I wanted to check out what this range had to offer. I quickly picked the spray bottle one and wanted to see if it is any style setting spray or any serum with spray nozzle, but to my surprise, it was a heat tamer spray, yayyyyy :happydance: The price was a bit closer to any other salon-product price, but its okay because I was happy to see normal brands like Sunsilk coming up with a heat defense product and that I can find it easily in supermarkets. I don’t have to run to salons or branded shops to buy heat defense products. I went back in two days after researching a lot and bought it.
Sunsilk Keratinology ranges are for salon treated, colored and heat-styled hair, i.e., for damaged and weak hair. They have products for colored hair, for curly, and for damaged hair separately. You can check it out on their website. It says that the Advanced Reconstruction Range repairs one year of accumulated hair damage in just 5 days.
What Does Sunsilk Keratinology Heat Protector Spray Claim?
Advanced heat protection formula with UV filter helps prevent breakage and frizz as you style for a professional look.
Salon looks can fade quickly. To sustain them, hair needs to be deeply nourished. Advanced formulations with Keratin Micro Technology reconstruct the hair surface, while micro nutrients penetrate into the hair cortex to deeply nourish the hair.
Directions For Use:
Use daily to protect the hair against damage caused by heat styling. Apply to damp or dry hair before heat styling. For optimum results use the complete advanced reconstruction program.

I got mine from a supermarket in Chennai and I saw medplusbeauty.com with some 15% introductory offer discount, so that should be a steal at Rs. 340.
My Hair Type:
Straight to wavy, medium thick hair (close to fine hair due to recent hair fall :struggle: ), straight at the top, gets wavy at the bottom. Hair length is up to little below the chest. I color my hair and heat style it often. No split ends though, but a little bit on the drier side. Hope this helps in determining if this will work for you.
My Take on Sunsilk Keratinology Heat Protector Spray:
I loved the packaging because it is sleek and trendy. It has a small “thingie” which helps us to lock the spray bottle or nozzle after use, so we can carry it without worrying if it will spoil our bags and that was great and thoughtful.
I loveeeeee this product and this is my first heat defense product, but I can tell the difference in what it does to my hair easily, I can feel the protection. I have a very good straightening iron and it is from Philips, it is the one which Jomol reviewed here a few days back. It is an awesome straightener like she said with ceramic plates, but it does dry your hair if you use it like really really hot or if your hair isn’t moisturized enough and it will look straight or curled but dull, at least for me it did. I used to use it with L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Serum. It gives glossy hair but not much protection, but Sunsilk Heat Defense Spray makes my hair softer and smoother as soon as I applied the product.
The spray nozzle helps you cover a larger part of your hair with the product, so you don’t have to spray it more. It does not fry or look fried in the ends and my flat iron runs really smooth with this on. Thank GOD, I don’t hear that crisp sound when ironing my ends. It has a mild fragrance. For me, its fragrance was okay, but my friend said it smelled really great.
The best thing about this product is that it actually works well even if you don’t use their entire range of products or even if you haven’t used a rinse-off conditioner. Now, that’s challenging right? Here’s the proof.
I made my friend to try this product who came out of shower. She had used Dove Shampoo and Livon Silky Potion for her ends. As soon as I misted this all over her hair, it turned smooth and a little soft. She could comb it easily. She loved the fragrance so much. We tried straightening her hair with my flat iron. I usually hear her ends fry :toothygrin: (that crisping sound) when I do it using just conditioner and Livon or L’Oreal Paris Smooth Intense Serum, but this time, I did not. I could tell that the product is working really well and it is a little moisturizing too.
The only drawback is that you can go overboard with this if you mist too much on the same area. Then, the product will just stay on your hair in that particular area as if you applied something on your hair and it looks wet. It doesn’t dry but after using flat iron on it, it looks alright; nothing odd, but it doesn’t get dried up even then. On the other hand, my friend had a bit of flyaways (not too much) after she finished straightening, but nothing much that a serum could not fix.
Pros of Sunsilk Keratinology Heat Protector Spray:
- Contains keratins.
- Has UV filters.
- Very moisturizing even when you do not use a rinse-off conditioner, it does its job well.
- Protects well.
- Packaging is good to carry while traveling.
- Turns hair a bit softer and definitely a lot smoother.
- Sprays a large mist which covers a lot of your hair and one does not need a lot of product.
- Makes your hair a little shiny too, but not too glossy, (it shows glossy in pictures).
- Easily available in India.
Cons of Sunsilk Keratinology Heat Protector Spray:
- Tames the frizz only in a minor way, you might need to use a little serum or a finishing product.
- Too much of product misting on the same area leads to wet chunk of hair which does not dry up easily, so we have to be careful, but I think we can get used to the product after using it a few times. We can even spray it in our palms or brush to apply evenly if you are not happy with the spraying, and it works well.
Do I Recommend/Will I Repurchase Sunsilk Keratinology Heat Protector Spray?
Hell yeah, I recommend this to everyone who uses a heat styler or even just a blow dryer. It protects your hair well and even from sun damage as it has UV filters. I am very happy with this and I will keep buying this again and again for its efficiency to protect my hair from damage.
