Protective Primers For Your Hair

I recently posted about the benefits of using a primer on your face. The same concept applies to your hair. Using a priming styling product helps coat your delicate strands from heat styling damage. It also helps delay split ends, balance out your scalp and seal in moisture for necessary shine and elasticity. Here are two of my all time favorite hair primers. I can't wait to hear what you think!

Bumble and Bumble Prep, $19, is a a great, lightweight hair product for the gal who's not into a whole lot of fussing. Not only is this a softening agent and detangler, but it really helps protect your hair from drying out under the hair dryer or the sun. It's also oil free and feels very natural, meaning your hair won't feel sticky, heavy or stiff.

It works best on limp or relatively healthy hair. To buy, simply click on their website, type in your zip code and the store closest to you will appear. Available in two sizes: two ounces for $7 and eight ounces for $19.

For one more protective hair primer,

Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure Moisture Kick Moisture Spray Conditioner, $16, is an intense lightweight primer that also acts as a conditioner and detangler. It locks in moisture and protects hair from heat.

It's also excellent for use on dry hair to help smooth fly-aways and hair suffering from static! Just shake well and then spray onto shampooed, towel-dried hair. Comb through and style as usual.

I should probably invest in these.

Are these sprays supposed to be a better primer/protector than, say, a serum?

it seems like just another unecessary hair step. does it really help? b/c if it does, i need to get it. my split ends are out of control. but my hair's super curly so you can't really tell. or at least that's what I like to tell myself.
