I am back with a new review. This time, its a hair product. As we all know, using any kind of heat on the hair, damages them badly in the long run. Hence, its always preferred to use least amount of heat on the hair. Besides that, one should always use a heat protectant before blow drying or ironing hair.
I came across L’Oreal Professional Liss Ultime (Reflexium) Heat Protectant when I went for my hair cut last time which was two to three months ago. My hair dresser suggested this product to me as I wanted my hair to be blow dried in a specific manner more often. She explained to me that the hair shafts and the hair cuticles remain protected by using a heat protectant. Later on, I thought this can be used as a serum also to keep the hair moisturized for a longer period, but she said no it’s not possible to keep the hair moisturized using a heat protectant, so I have to use a separate serum after blow drying my hair. She made me aware of the fact that this heat protectant can be used for both the conditions, blow drying as well as ironing.
Rs 580/- for 50 ml.
It is a glass bottle and it is in pump form. The bottle is of purple color with grey-colored plastic nozzle. It’s a glass bottle and hence one has to be careful while handling the same.
This is how the liquid looks, its transparent fluid, and doesn’t leave any oily residue on hair.
It detangles the hair nicely. It says its “thermo-smoothing oil for use with heated styling tools.”
Thermo-soothing oil helps to protect the hair and optimize the effect of heated styling tools, leaving the hair feeling silky-smooth to touch.
Directions To Use:
Apply to shampooed, blow-dried hair. Use a hair dryer or straightening iron to achieve the smoothest results.
There are too many chemicals, but I suppose they all are normal ones. The natural ingredients that are present in it are apricot kernel oil and avocado oil.
What I do is, after washing my hair, I partially towel dry my hair first. Then, I use my Philips blow dryer at the minimum temperature and maximum speed, without its narrow head. When they are almost dry and with least wetness, I apply this heat protectant and give the desired look to my hair with the help of the dryer with its narrow head on. With this, I am done with styling my hair.
After this, I apply my serum and I am done for the day since this heat protectant doesn’t moisturize the hair at all. I cannot say if the hair style is maintained for the whole day or not, because sometimes it fails to happen like that. I can just say it’s a nice heat protectant and I feel my hair is protected. Also, this product smells great, but it hardly lingers in the hair, since I immediately put serum after blow drying.
To summarize about the product:
