A Serum Perfect for Heat Styling

By January 6, 2014

Follow me on:

You know how important it is to protect your hair from heat. This can come in the form of blow drying, flat ironing, hot combing...any direct heat may potentially damage black hair. Therefore, having a great heat protectant is vital when using any thermal styling tools. If your product does double duty as a frizz fighter or shine-inducing serum, even better.

That's what nuNAAT Brazilian Keratin Serum Ultra Shine is for. If you style your own hair, you still want salon-quality results, right? This is especially true when blow drying or flat ironing, as professionals often get fantastic results that can be hard to duplicate at home.

I tested this serum for a flat iron session in the past and it worked amazingly well. One of the biggest issues that flat-ironed hair faces is getting that lightweight look; the fewer products you use, the better. I only used this serum (which is heat-activated) and that's all I needed. No additional moisturizers were necessary.

Apply on damp hair immediately after shampooing and conditioning. You can either blow dry a little or air dry completely, then thermal style to your liking. It leaves hair shiny, supple and free-flowing -- I achieved very professional results at home. As with most serums, it comes in a small bottle, but a little goes a long way. Plus, you should be able to find it at a local Walgreens for around $6.00.

Other nuNAAT products I've tested and liked include the deep conditioning mask. Find out more about nuNAAT's Brazilian keratin products at the company site.
