Whether it’s a head full of curls, a chic blow-dry or straightened hair, not only we will be roasting potatoes and chicken but also our luscious hair.

While doing so every once in a while doesn’t cause too much damage, it’s important you also use some form of heat protection.
If you’re anything like us and sometimes skip this essential step – you might be too lazy or think heat protectant is a marketing gimmick – a woman’s revealed just how crucial it is.
Brittani Lang, an entrepreneur, demonstrated the shocking difference of using heat protectant with…a slice of toast.
In the video, she covered one half of the white piece of bread with heat protectant while leaving the other half untouched – just like we sometimes do with our hair.
Once the time was up and the toaster was ready to pop, the end results spoke for themselves – and they will definitely make you reconsider your hairstyling routine!
The side which had the secret potion spread all over came out looking untouched – there were no marks of burns; it had stayed just as white as it had going in.
The one with no protectant, on the other hand…
Burnt and crunchy, there was no saving that half!
As well as demonstrating, she explained why you should always use heat protectant when styling – ”always” being the keyword.
By creating a barrier between your piping hot styling tool and your hair, Britanni said, it reduces heat damage and slows down how your locks heat up.
Need more convincing?
A heat protectant seals in moisture and fights frizz, combats breakage and dullness, while also smoothing the hair cuticle.
This, she explained, is what makes your hair look and feel soft.
”Stop spending hundreds of dollars at the salon and then ruining it with heat damage!”
