A mane filled with luxurious springy curls often comes with a price: dry, damaged and broken hair. The winter is prime-time for styling with heat¾blow drying, curling and straightening—because we can’t let our hair air dry when it’s so cold outside. Protect against potential damage by using a heat protectant spray each time you pull out the hot tools. Find some of our favorites below.
