Hair Stays Heat And UV Safe With White Sands Infinity Hair Spray



A hair spray that is also a heat protectant?  Yes, you read that correctly.  White Sands Infinity Hair Spray, ($22 / 10 oz.), protects hair from UV rays and heat tools, all while holding your hair in your selected style.  Infinity is a heat activated hair spray with thermal guards that ensure your hair won't be damaged while styling.  Infinity is an intellegent hair spray and is the spray of choice on many major television shows.

Infinity has the ability to increase the amount of shine when heat is added to the hair due to the special copolymers it contains.

“When you put a flat iron or curling iron on the hair, these particular polymers lay the cuticle layers down,” explains Fernando Salas, creator of White Sands. “Hair now shows the melanin off better, which is the color found in the center of the hair. The cortex fractures light if the hair is damaged and cannot be brushed out easily. Many hairsprays use copolymers that are not combable which means you are right back to the problem of the hair being fractured again every time you comb. This will make the hair dull. The copolymers in the formula, once combined, make the hair incredibly glossy and bring the highest amount of shine.”

"When you put heat on the hair with Infinity, it super boosts these copolymers and increases the way it makes the hair glow even more.  Hair will not stick to the iron and never flakes with tresses taking on a weightless, nude-like feel once styled. These particular copolymers have a smoothing ability that is also anti-frizz and humidity resistant."

Other ingredients like Silk Amino Acids, the shiniest protein available, Vitamin B5 and Trimethicone give the hair a boost in extra shine so that when you comb the hair, it doesn’t pull up the scales of the strand. Silk Amino Acid provides resilience so you are not harming the hair as the heat is applied.

“When you normally put an iron on something, it almost cooks or makes the hair hard,” explains Salas. “Infinity does not do that. Again, it all goes back to having a spray that makes the hair combable. Hairstyles that can be brushed equal shine.”

I've used White Sands Infinity Hair Spray as hairspray to set my style, and also as a heat protectant before flat ironing or curling.  It does, indeed, increase shine when heat is applied and I absolutely love that.  My hair is rather coarse by nature and if I don't infuse it with shine, it just looks really dull.   Walking around in these Phoenix summers, I can use all the UV protection I can get and I really appreciate that about this hairspray.  It's a really large can, which will last well, like practically forever!

You can learn more about the White Sands brand on their website and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
