I was absolutely kicking myself when I realised that I hadn’t packed my Rita Hazan New York Lock + Block Protective Spray for my recent holiday, as that would’ve been the absolute perfect time to not only fully put the product through its paces, but also actually make full use of it to protect my hair from all the elements that it definitely wasn’t used to – my hair is still struggling to return to its original condition now, as it still feels dry and weather-beaten. So annoying! I will still share with you my quick thoughts on this product, as whilst I didn’t get the chance to use it to its maximum ability, we were still lucky enough to have a thoroughly decent Summer, so it definitely got some use!
The Rita Hazan New York Lock + Block Protective Spray is pretty much as it sounds, a protective spray that’s particularly well-suited to coloured hair; I have very coloured hair that’s always bleached, so I need protection and I often wear a big hat when in the sun, as this helps me protect my facial skin too. You use this spray as you would any other spray, applying in a fine mist over dry hair before going out into the elements; Rita also advises topping-up throughout the day, much like you would with any other kind of sun protection. I’m always wary of adding any additional products to my hair routine as my hair can very quickly turn greasy from product, but this spray is lovely and light; I swear it also gives hair a bit of a glossy finish too, but I can’t say for sure. What it does offer is peace of mind that your hair is protected – why should you spend a fortune getting your hair professionally coloured just to hide it under a hat?
