Ever since I discovered the magic of hair straighteners in my early teens, I’ve never looked back. My hair is very long and naturally wavy, so I rely on my hair straighteners to keep my hair as tamed and sleek as possible. I’m always very conscious of damaging my hair when using hot tools, and my holy grail heat protection spray is the TIGI S-Factor Flat Iron Shine Spray which I’ve repurchased countless times, so I decided it was high time I featured it on my blog. TIGI is my favourite haircare brand, and I love all of their ranges.. especially their S-Factor range which was recently revamped and their branding has changed slightly.
The TIGI S-Factor Flat Iron Shine Spray contains UV filters so it protects your hair from heat damage as well as absorbing UV rays.. I’ve never seen an heat protection spray which contains UV filters before and it also contains vitamins A and E to nourish and condition the hair.
The pump dispenses a very fine mist, which feels quite dry; it doesn’t soak your hair when you spritz it through the lengths which I much prefer, as it feels a lot lighter than other sprays.

My hair is very fine so it can get weighed down very easily, but this doesn’t weigh my hair down at all, even when I use it very generously and you can use it on both wet and dry hair. To use the spray, I section my hair and mist each section twice from arms length and then proceed to use whichever hot tool I’m using.
Whenever I use this spray, I find that I only need to pass my straighteners over each section of hair a couple of times as it somehow manages to defrizz my hair too, as well as fully protecting it from any heat damage. I find that my hair remains poker straight for two days when I use this spray which is amazing, and it really is better than any other heat protection spray I’ve tried.. and I’ve tried a lot.
Not only is it a fantastic heat protector, it also smells divine (like all TIGI products) and the scent lingers in my hair all day long which I love as it acts as almost a perfume for your hair as well as an heat protection spray. I cannot rave about this spray enough, it really is my holy grail heat protection spray…
