Protect your hair from hot tools, UV rays, and frizz.

This lightweight thermal hair protection – that you won’t see or feel – shields from hot styling tools (up to 450º), gives you control, and adds body. Also helps shield from damaging, color-fading UV rays. When your bottle is nearly empty, don't toss it; refill it twice with one 8-oz refill pouch.

Dressed Up 4oz

Some Like it Hot

No judgement here! Sure, air-srying is the best way to avoid damage, but blow-drying is a clear preference for some people – or a must during the winter months. So when you just can't unplug those hot styling tools...

Don't Get Burned!

...keep Dressed Up on hand to take the heat so your hair won't have to. Some people even use it without heat as an all-around styling cream because of the control it also offers. Dressed Up might end up being the most versatile product you own.

This is great for flat ironing or curls, makes the hair stay in place and one pump is enough for my long (not that thick Scandinavian) hair.

🙆Today I took Hairstory's "Dressed Up Hair Protector" with me and I asked to my hairdresser to apply it to protect my hair from the heat of the phone. As she stroked my hair, she exclaimed: "What a good smell!" Yes, it (also) smells good. 😉

After a couple of washes and dressed up treatments I am happy with my curls. Years of straightening to keep down frizzys is in the past.
