With all the styling, restyling and products we use on our hair nowadays, it’s little wonder that we can be left with stressed, dry and straw-like locks. There is one product however, that hair stylists say you simply cannot live without, and that’s a good heat defense spray. As always, I’ve worked my way through the beauty isles, to bring you some of the best products to keep your hair looking fabulous.
