At any given moment, Birchbox staffers have been known to breakout any number of heat styling tools to whip lackluster curls into shape or straighten strands that have gone haywire. Case in point: our very own Katia, with a little help from Community Manager Rachel, and Charlie demonstrate their at-desk hair styling expertise in the photo above.
But whether we’re heading out to fancy cocktails or just heading into a meeting, we never reach for our styling tools without protecting our hair first. Which is why we can’t get enough of Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray.
For quick change artists like ourselves, this lemony scented spray has become a desk essential since it’s formulated to keep both dry and wet locks protected from the dulling effects of heat—whereas the other guys are designed for wet, fresh-from-the-shower strands.
Beyond protecting your hair from scorching 450 degree temperatures (ouch!), we love that the formula’s patented polymer complex curbs breakage and maintains your hairs’ natural brilliance. Plus, we love that this product is perfect for girls who are always on the go—a.k.a. it’s okay if we forget the serums or leave-in conditioners first thing in the morning! All you need are a few even spritzes of this light mist all over your head before you break out your hot iron, blow dryer or flat iron. Then, set your heat dial to high, and style as usual.
