I love using my new flat iron with the KQC Thermal Heat Spray ($13.99) which is the best heat protector according to Flat Iron Experts. Basically it comes in an aerosol can which I like, my fingers aren't tired after. I spray some on and then start straightening my hair. At first the spray smells weird, give it a few minutes and it fades dramatically and leaves your hair soft, shiny, and smelling great. Definitely a must have for anyone who straightens their hair regularly and doesn't want a damaged mess.
KQC Thermal Shine Spray (142g) is an ion enriched polishing complex formulated for superior heat protection and ultra gloss hair shine. Lightweight, non-greasy micro mist spray that eliminates frizz, softens and polishes hair without build up. Designed for all hair types. Use with flat iron, curling iron or hair dryers. KQC Thermal Shine spray is great for all hair types. Whether your hair is normal, oily or dry, you can prevent infrared heat damage resulting in split-ends, frizz, and so forth. This is also a great way to help detangle your hair as the thermal shine spray allows for easy & smooth comb-throughs.
Directions: Spray on wet or dry hair. Style with a hair dryer or iron for brilliant, ultra-gloss shine.
I also received an Iron Holder ($14.99) by Flat Iron Experts! I've never had a holder before so I'm used to setting it on the counter and hoping it doesn't move or burn something. This holder is a great idea it fits my flat iron perfectly and is heat resistant, definitely a necessity when my iron heats up to 450°F. It also has suction cups which is a great idea, however you have to be careful where you put it. The suction cups do fall since the iron is decently heavy. I like using my stand on my counter, still protecting my counter, but not going to fall on me.
You should definitely go check out FlatIronExperts! You can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
