Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About No Remorse Heat Protection & Taming Spray
If you routinely heat style your hair, you probably know that you should use products to protect your hair. There are tons of options on the market, so how do you know what to look for in a quality heat protectant? And why, exactly, do we need to use a heat protectant every time we apply heat to our hair?
A lot of the reason has to do with the characteristics of aging tresses. As our estrogen levels decrease over time, our scalp produces less sebum, which is the oil that keeps our hair hydrated and strong. This reduced sebum production is why our hair becomes drier and more brittle as we age. We also lose shine and start to see dullness on aging hair. That’s why nourishing ingredients like argan and avocado oils as well as vitamin E in a heat protectant is so important.
As we age, faithfully using a moisturizing heat protectant spray to protect hair from heat styling is critical. A good heat protectant prevents damage to brittle locks. (Think of it as a sunscreen for your hair!) Better Not Younger's No Remorse Heat Protectant & Taming Spray is a light-weight, hydrating option infused with plant oils and vitamin E to coat strands and create a physical barrier between your hair and the heating element.
Why No Remorse Is Our Go-To for Heat Protection and Smoothing
If you're like us, you adore how your hair looks after heat styling. Blow-dryers, curling irons and flat irons help us create endless gorgeous hairstyles. But these products take a toll on the health of our hair, if we don't protect our strands from the heat. And this is exactly why a heat protectant for blow-drying hair and styling our tresses is so important!
We developed our No Remorse avocado and argan oil heat protectant spray specifically for dry, aging hair. Our hair is more fragile, so it needs a greater infusion of fortifying oils and vitamins. Plus, No Remorse is a heat protectant that actually works up to 450F, so it can handle the heat from all of your favorite heat stylers!
A Deeper Look Inside the Bottle
No Remorse is packed with cruelty-free, plant-based ingredients, and it is free of harsh ingredients like sulfates and parabens. Let's take a look at the science behind No Remorse:
Argan oil for heat protection and hydration: Full of hydrating fatty acids that penetrate the hair shaft and lock in moisture, argan oil heat protectants help maintain scalp and follicle health while preventing dry, brittle strands.
Avocado oil for heat protection: Because avocado oil has a smoke point near 500F— which is higher than the temperature of your heat styling tools—avocado oil heat protectants work by smoothing the cuticle and protecting your hair from the hottest heat styling, reducing breakage. If you use a flat iron, heat protection is a must and an avocado oil heat protectant will be your hair's best friend!
Vitamin E for hydration: Vitamin E is an excellent hair protectant because, alongside hydrating oils, it helps restore brittle hair strands and seal moisture into the hair shaft helping to reduce frizz. (Vitamin E is recommended for healing dry skin, and the same restorative properties make it an excellent heat protectant ingredient for your hair!)
Pro tip: Our bodies don't produce vitamin E, so we have to seek out this nutrient in foods and supplements. To give you hair and skin a boost, try adding our Significant Other Hair, Skin & Nails Supplement + Retinol Boost for more than 100% of your RDA of vitamin E!

Directions Decoded: How to Apply No Remorse
No Remorse moisturizing heat protectant spray can be used on damp or dry hair:
Spritz All Over Damp Strands: To use No Remorse as a heat protectant before blow-drying and styling hair, hold the spray 6 to 8 inches away from hair and spritz hair from root to ends, focusing the most product on ends for added hydration. Work through hair gently with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb.
Applying with Your Hands: You can also spray No Remorse directly onto your palms and then work the product evenly throughout your hair. (We love this technique because it gives us more placement control!) Once you've worked the product through your hair, blow-dry and style as usual.
The Art of Layering: No Remorse’s lightweight, non-greasy formula makes it perfect for pairing with other styling products like our Lift Me Up Hair Thickener—the result is hair that’s full of body and free from frizz!
Reapply As Needed: Perfect for style touch-ups, this argan oil heat protectant instantly smooths flyaways throughout the day. Just pop it in your purse for weightless frizz-taming and hydration on the go.
A Few of Our Favorite Tips and Tricks
Here are some of our favorite ways to use No Remorse to fight all kinds of hair concerns:
Pack It for the Pool: We know you've got your sun hat and sunscreen ready to go, but do you have a good heat protectant? All of those UV rays can wreak havoc on your hair! Throw No Remorse into your beach bag to keep your tresses hydrated for all-day fun in the sun.
Spritz It on to Stop Static: Winter is rough on our skin and hair. Cold, dry temperatures are a recipe for hair static. Add No Remorse to your winter hair-care lineup! Just a few spritzes of this heat protectant for your hair before blow-drying will help stop static while you style your locks.
The Perfect Pick-Me-Up: We’re all about showing our hair love, and a midday spritz of No Remorse offers a terrific micro-moment of self-care for our tresses (otherwise known as beauty snacking!). Especially when humidity levels are high, the vitamin E in this hair protectant makes it an essential hair-smoothing must-have.
