When I bought my ghd hair straighteners I thought I would splash out and buy some of the hair products to match. One of the products I bought was 'Ghd Thermal Protector for Normal-Fine Hair'.
Since I use my hair straighteners pretty much everyday, I think its important to use some kind of product in order to try to protect my hair from the heat of the straighteners since it can be really damaging to hair over time. I was not disappointed with this product in the slightest and am really glad I bought it.
This specific product claims to protect hair from heat from straighteners and hair appliances for temperatures up to 200'c, and it also protects hair from becoming weak.
The bottle is plastic and comes in a metallic bronze/gold colour . The bottle is triangular in shape. On the front of the bottle there is a mosaic type design which comes down from the top into the middle of the bottle which is nice and simplistic and is the only coloured spot on the bottle. Underneath that is written 'ghd' and then 'thermal protector for normal-fine hair'. The bottle has a removable plastic lid and then there is a spray top for easy application, but this can be removed by screwing it off, if so desired. I really like the funky triangular design.
Boots have just recently started selling ghd products on their website so they're getting more widely available. I found that before they were mostly sold in salons, so I have been stocking up on ghd products online from asos.com since it was too much hassle trying to remember which salons sell it!
The thermal protector is really easy to use as comes with a spray top, so you simply spray it on to either wet or dry hair, and then you can get on with using your hair straighteners. Since the bottle uses a spray top, the liquid comes out as a nice fine mist so that your hair gets a good even amount and means that you don't use too much.
I really like how the thermal protector made my hair feel, not only was it easy to use but it made my hair less frizzy, it also made it shinier and it made it feel slightly thicker. On top of all that it is protecting my hair. I have noticed that after using it my hair does feel nicer and not as dry, which was an effect of using my straighteners without using something to protect my hair.
The smell of the thermal protector is actually quite nice (which surprised me!) I thought it was going to smell slightly chemically but instead smells quite sweet and a little fruity, which I think is an added bonus as it makes your hair smell nice!
This product should last for ages, since it comes with a spray top you use so little every time you use it. I only use a few sprays on my hair at a time. Even though I use mine everyday, I got my bottle about 8 months ago and I still have over a quarter of a bottle left.
The cost of the thermal protector is £10 for a 150ml bottle.
The thermal protector is to be used up within 24 months of being opened.
I would recommend this product. I really felt like my hair was smoother and shinier, and it even felt slightly thicker! It also gives me piece of mind that I am actually doing something to protect my hair since I use my hair straighteners so much.
