Beauty Review: Desert Essence Coconut Hair Defrizzer and Heat Protector

Written by Sarah E. Jahier

My hair takes a lot of abuse - I dye it every month, not to mention I blow dry it several times a week and then use a straightening iron on it pretty much every day. My hair is thick, coarse and frizzy, so it takes a lot to tame it. And all that taming damages my hair.

I normally don’t use a heat protector on my hair prior to blow-drying or straightening, but after reading an article stressing the importance of using one, I figured I better start, especially since my hair was becoming really damaged and unmanageable.

I happened upon Desert Essence’s Coconut Hair Defrizzer and Heat Protector while browsing the aisles at Sprouts Market. It was on sale, so that got my attention first, and I already love Desert Essence’s products, so that made me pick it up to check the ingredients. It was labeled vegan and a quick scan of the ingredients verified that (or, I could have just used the handy “Is it Vegan?” app on my phone). Also, I love coconut, so into my basket it went!

I’ve used the spray for about three weeks now, and I’ll never know how I went so long without it! I spray it into my damp hair after getting out of the shower, comb through, then blow dry and straighten. I can also use it on dry hair for when I need to use my straightening iron for touch ups (which is basically every morning since I tend to wake up with serious bedhead).

I love that this spray doesn’t gunk up my hair or make it hard to blow dry or straighten. It leaves my hair much more manageable (it even acts as a detangler), smoother (it gets rid of the frizz!), softer and just feeling much more healthy. It is brilliant at getting rid of my frizz and making my hair much less “fluffy”. It also revives my second day hair and give it life for another day so I can skip of day of showering. I love the light scent of coconut and it is never overpowering. This light spray is perfect for everyday use and I feel it is keeping my hair healthier, stronger and sleeker.

I highly recommend Desert Essence’s Coconut Hair Defrizzer and Heat Protector as this lightweight spray seems to do it all! It detangles,  it defrizzes, it smooths, it smells nice, and makes my hair feel healthier, all without weighing my hair down or making it feel like there is product in it. This has definitely become an essential tool in my hair care routine!

Buy it on Amazon!
