Instead of: Nexxus Heat Protexx Heat Protection Styling Spray, $15.99
Try: TRESemme Heat Tamer Spray, $3.98
Nexxus Heat Protexx Heat Protection Styling Spray is pretty amazing. Not only does it protect your hair from heat damage, it actually styles and sculpts hair. I can even use it in the place of hair spray when I'm in a rush, which I'll admit is pretty much every morning. Because it's alcohol-free, Nexxus Heat Protexx Heat Protection Styling Spray instantly tames my frizz and leaves my hair feeling smooth. Whether you spray this protectant on wet or dry hair, the result is always the same: silky hair. There's no sticky residue and my hair never feels weighed down. There are two downsides to this spray: the pump sometimes gets clogged, and it costs more than any hair product should.
TRESemme makes an amazing dupe for just $3! TRESemme Heat Tamer Spray not only protects just like Nexxus's version, it tames fly-aways and leaves my hair smooth and sleek. It's also alcohol-free and has a clean, subtle scent that reminds me of freshly washed hair. After trying TRESemme's version, I'm never going back. It's now my “Holy Grail” spray.
