Default Best heat protection?

What are some good drug store brand heat protectors? I have tried Garnier Fructis's thermal protector and it made my hair feel dry. I heard Tresseme has a good one. Any one have any recommendations?

I've also heard that tresemme's heat protector spray is amazing! Apparently it's rated among the best. Pantene's fine hair style heat protector is supposed to be really good too. If you're looking for good and cheap, though, I just use grapeseed or argan oil on wet hair as heat protection lol.

If I was to purchase one I would try Redken Anti Snap - silicones, hydrolysed protein, 18-MEA and ceramides. There is no evidence of natural oils working, I would not risk it.

Did not know that. Looks like I have to buy a heat protector too.

There is a list of proven heat protectant ingredients over on the Wavy Hair Community on Facebook, are you a member?

The one I've used and liked the best isn't really a drugstore product. It's Aveda Brilliant Damage Control. Used in conjunction with a Sedu ceramic tourmaline flat iron with thermostatic control, set on the lowest possible temp, I got great results, making one pass only, and no evidence of any damage.
