We all have those days where nothing seems to go right with our hair. Even after heat-styling with curling or flat irons, hair either lies there – limp – or it poofs up into a big mess. With Aussie’s Heat Protecting Shine Spray, you can make sure your hair is touchably soft and smooth after heat styling, without sacrificing volume or body. I would highly recommend this product as both a heat protectant and a leave-in spray for natural hair.
I have fairly tight waves and curls running throughout my chest length brown hair that I often feel the need to eliminate. As in, flat-iron those curls so hard they don’t know what hit them. As anyone who frequently uses heat on their hair knows, you should always use some form of a heat protectant on your hair when applying any kind of heat – blow-drying, flat ironing, or curling, for example. When using Aussie’s Heat Protecting Shine Spray before I blow dry and spritzing a bit on my ends before I flat iron or curl it, it ensures my hair will be left touchably soft and smooth, frizz-free and brimming with body. Say hello to bouncy curls that are full of life, or sleek, straight hair that won’t hang limp by your face!
On the back of the bright purple bottle, Aussie promises the product will “help shield hair from heat damage and let your look shine.” They don’t exaggerate and they don’t embellish, because they don’t need to. The product does exactly what it states – and more. I find that when I spray this on my hair after I get out of the shower and let it dry naturally (curly), it weighs down my curls enough to eliminate frizz and give me soft, smooth waves that sit beautifully on my shoulders. Who doesn’t love a product that does even more than it promises?
I’d highly recommend this product to anyone looking for an alternative to their current heat protectant spray, who may not be satisfied with the results they’re getting. Whether you’ve got curly hair and are looking to straighten it or, straight hair you’re looking to curl, or even if you just like running a flat-iron quickly through your ends in the morning, this product works! It is also silicone, sulfate and dimethicone-free, so for those of you who are doing the low-poo or co-washing method of cleansing your hair, this is a safe heat protectant that will not cause buildup.
- Easy to use
- Works as a heat protectant and a shine spray

Overall, Aussie’s Heat Protecting Shine Spray is more than worth the (incredibly low) price I paid for it. The Aussie line can be found at many drugstore and grocery chains, so the product is easily accessible. The easy-to-use spray bottle provides your hair with the barrier it needs to block heat damage and leave it feeling soft and smooth with lots of body and shine.
