DIY Heat Protectant Spray

by - October 28, 2020


 Every time the weather changes, my hair does too, it has a mind of its own, and the only way to tame my frizzy locks is by braiding it or by using heat. Since I don't use hot tools unless I really need to, I don't usually buy heat protectants. Last week, I finished a bottle I purchased over a year ago, so I thought it would be a good idea to try to recreate my own version of a heat protectant using ingredients I have at home.


When you style your hair with a blow dryer, curling wand, or flat iron, it causes breakage and split ends. That's why it's important to apply a heat protectant before using heat on your hair. When you use a heat protectant, it creates a protective barrier on the hair, which helps minimize the amount of damage caused by styling tools.

ARGAN OIL: Argan oil contains essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and is rich in vitamin E, which helps moisturize the hair, reduces split ends, and breakage. Argan oil keeps the scalp healthy, strengthens hair follicles, and promotes hair growth. It protects the hair against heat damage caused by styling tools and from free radicals.

ALMOND OIL: Just like argan oil, almond oil contains high amounts of vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. Almond oil nourishes the hair, making it look softer and shinier. It also promotes hair growth, reduces scalp inflammation, and split ends.

CONDITIONER: Conditioners are meant to improve the feel and appearance of our hair. It makes the hair softer and easier to manage. Pick any conditioner you'd like, I'm using one I already have at home.


  • 1 tsp Argan Oil
  • 1 tsp Almond Oil
  • 1 tbsp Conditioner
  • 1 cup distilled water


  1. In a spray bottle, add 1 cup of water, conditioner, argan oil, and almond oil.
  2. Shake the bottle well to combine all of the ingredients.


To use, lightly spray the heat protectant on towel-dried hair before blow-drying or before using any styling tools. 

Shake the bottle well before using it.
