Default Heat Protectant

What kind do you use?
I want to try Tresemme thermal spray since I use their products but the reviews from kinky girls aren't so great. Then again you should always try things yourself right?
Suggestions?

Hot Sauce by FHI Heat. You can get it at Trade Secrets.

This is my holy grail: Hask - Hask Straight Solution Hair Treatment

I use it of course as a heat protectant for the few times I straighten my hair, but its main role for me is as a styler. After washing my hair, I apply about a quarter-size amount over my leave-in and oil, and it leaves my curls well defined and moist. I can get up to 3-day hair with it.

I leave Biolage Daily Detangler in while it's wet. It has silicone and it's really conditioning. Doesn't leave me feeling producty like FHI Hot Sauce did. Sometimes I'll use Redken's Smooth Down serum once it's dry.

I forgot this one! Like it too. Still have some for when I blow out.

Thats the exact same one I use. No problem w/my curls reverting after I straighten either!

When I was researching oils that was one of the things I liked about grapeseed oil. I use it daily in my spritz as well as add it to my conditioners for detangling to add more slip, however I've been afraid to use it as a heat protectant...thought I might burn my hair off! LOL. How exactly do you apply yours and do you use it for blowdrying, flat iron,etc?

Yes! Yes! I got it from nikkimae2003 on YouTube! Whenever she blows out her hair, grapseed oil is one of her heat protectants. She also uses chi silk infusion.

I apply the grapeseed oil while I'm detangling & sectioning for blowdrying. You only need to use a dime size amount per section, or else you hair will be overly saturated when your done blow drying! :-)
