Desert Essence Coconut Hair Defrizzer & Heat Protector Review

A few months ago, I decided to pick up a container of the Coconut Hair Defrizzer & Heat Protector from Desert Essence.  I tend to use heated styling tools a couple times a week and I really want to be able to prevent any damage to my hair that that might cause.  So, I started using this heat protectant and I’ve been using it since!  Today I thought I’d share with you some information and my thoughts on this Desert Essence product!

The Coconut Hair Defrizzer & Heat Protector from Desert Essence comes in a convenient 237 ml spray bottle and costs $14.20 CAD from  It’s made from four desert botanicals and coconut oil.  This product also contains jojoba seed extract, which helps enhance hair’s natural shine.  The Coconut Hair Defrizzer & Heat Protector is vegan and is free of silicones, gluten, parabens, petrolatums, paraffins, mineral oils, artificial dyes, and more!

The Coconut Hair Defrizzer & Heat Protector can be used on wet or dry hair.  When I wash my hair, I usually do it at night, which gives my hair time to air dry.  So, I usually use this product on dry hair, but sometimes, when I dry my hair, I use it on wet hair to really help protect my hair from any heat damage.  Overall, I really like this heat protector!  I’ve found that it seems to protect my hair from heat and help prevent damage to my hair.  This product absorbs into hair very quickly, and I find it leaves my hair shiny and feeling hydrated.  I’m not too sure how much it really defrizzes hair because I don’t have overly frizzy hair, but so far it’s been working really well!  The only thing that I’m not too fond of about this product is the scent.  I tend to go back and fourth on liking coconut, depending on the product!  This product probably contains more of a real coconut scent, compared to other more fake scents, which actually, I would say, makes me like this product more!

Here are some pros and cons of the Desert Essence Coconut Hair Defrizzer & Heat Protector!

Absorbs quickly
Protects hair from heat damage
No mineral oil
No artificial dyes
Made from renewable sources

Somewhat strong scent

I’ve been enjoying using this product for the past while!  I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a cruelty-free heat protectant for your hair to prevent damage!
