White Sands Infinity Hairspray Review - Minds. Blown.
It’s one of those universal truths: Heat (or, specifically, hot tools) hurts your hair. We all know it; we’ve all experienced it. We’ve grown accustomed to hot tools being our enemies, making hair appear dry or dull — yet we keep using them. And, really, that’s not going to change until someone invents heatless blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons that somehow get the job done. So, instead of doing away with them completely, we take great pains to prep and protect our hair with “heat-proof” products that will help minimize the inevitable damage.
And, while those can be great, now there’s something out there that takes it even further: Rather than combat your hot tools in an attempt to protect your hair, White Sands Infinity Hairspray — used by stylists on Pretty Little Liars and Jane The Virgin — promises to actually work with the heat to give you extra shine. That’s right: With this spray, it seems the more heat that’s applied, the shinieryour hair becomes. We know: Mind blown.
It seems the secret lies within the very scientific combination of ingredients, particularly the copolymers, the silk amino acids, and the trimethicone. According to Fernando Salas, the creator of White Sands Haircare, when you use a flat iron or curling iron on your hair after applying the Infinity spray, the unique combination of copolymers lay the cuticle layers of your hair down flat. “When you put heat on the hair with Infinity, it super boosts these copolymers and increases the way it makes the hair shine even more,” he tells Teen Vogue. “Our particular copolymers have a smoothing ability that is then anti-frizz and humidity resistant.”
The silk amino acids (which Salas says are “the shiniest protein[s]...available,”) then act as co-conspirators to the copolymers, boosting the shine factor even more, and protecting your hair from the usual damage from tools that makes it dull. “Heat normally cuts the hair if there is nothing that makes [it] resilient,” Fernando says. “Silk amino acid gives hair this resilience...The flat iron glides over the hair with ease, which then amplifies the shine you will get when using Infinity.”
But Infinity isn’t just about adding shine when you add heat. These ingredients, along with the trimethicone, also protect your hair from another imminent danger: your hairbrush. When you brush or comb your hair, the process can pull up the scales of each strand and “fracture” your locks, contributing to the dullness. “Many hairsprays use copolymers that are not comb-able, which means you are right back to the problem of [your] hair being fractured again every time you comb,” Fernando says. But, Infinity’s formula was designed so that you can brush, style with hot tools, and brush again, all without separating those precious strands. “Essentially, the copolymers [in Infinity] align the fabric of hair perfectly so that [you] can get the best response in every way; shine being one of the most important.”
As if that wasn’t enough to grab a bottle, Infinity does all of that highly scientific work on your locks, while also being super light, leaving your hair feeling just as soft, weightless, and comb-able after you use it than before — none of that hard, gunky hair nonsense.
Smooth, shiny hair thanks to our hot tools rather than in spite of them? Pass the curling iron.
