by | 20 Sep 2019

A do-all, failsafe blow-dry cream or spray is an absolute must in any kit.

You’re looking for heat protection, flexible hold, a shot of hydration and so much more – it’s hard to hit the spot. But with a product you’ll be you use this much, regardless of whether you’re working on male or female clients, it’s worth taking the time to find the right one. We run through some of the best… does your favourite make the list?

L’Oréal Professionnel TECNI.Art Pli


We couldn’t leave off this classic. Pli is the first step for so many stylists, giving the shape and memory to any style that follows. It keeps hair feeling like hair, with a soft texture and a natural feel, but helps to boost volume and root lift.

evo mister fantastic blowout spray


This blow-dry spray is perfect for long, layered hair, easily applied between sections to add shape memory and a medium hold. You also get a dose of UV and heat protection as a bonus, which leaves hair with a natural satin finish.

Electric  P*-4 Preparation Spray


Originally designed as a backstage tool, this weightless formula is perfect for transforming the condition of hair so that it feels significantly smoother and glossier immediately after application. Not only suitable for styling, it acts as a leave-in conditioner and is packed with nourishing oils, advanced de-tanglers and intelligent heat protecting ingredients to ensure that the hair is ten times stronger.

Paul Mitchell Flexible Style Super Sculpt Styling Glaze


When you’re facing frizz-prone hair the prep for heat is more important than ever. This Styling Glaze helps to seal in moisture while smoothing strands to leave you the perfect base for styling. Don’t worry, the fast-drying formula isn’t sticky and offers flexible hold with panthenol and other conditioning agents.

Fudge Professional Tri-Blo


Designed to prime, protect and add shine, this triple-action, light, non-sticky spray contains Invisi-shield technology to defend against heat damage and ensure styles lasts longer. Not just a hair protector, this magical multitasker delivers amazing shine without weighing hair down. There’s even a Clean Blonde Violet version (RRP £14.45), offering the same benefits but with added violet pigments to neutralize unwanted brassiness in blondes.

Indola Innova Setting Volume and Blow-Dry Spray


When you’re faced with super-thick hair, or a time crunch, a fast-drying spray can go a long way to helping. The Indola Innova spray smoothes, detangles and provides a light hold all in one, while also protecting hair against dryer heat. It also benefits from UV protection thanks to its innovative Pixel Technology.

Aveda Speed of Light Blow Dry Accelerator Spray


We love this handy spray for a seriously boosted blow dry in half the time. It uses lactic acid, naturally derived from sugar beets, to help seal and smooth the hair cuticle to help with separation of the strands and increased airflow. That means less drying time and a smoother finish for you!
