Drybar Hot Toddy Heat & UV Protectant

Written by Deanna .P

Drybar is a concept that came about 6 years ago.  They are ahair salon & all they do is blow out hair.  They do not cut or color hair.  There are over 60 locations around the country & you can request on line for them to open a location near you.  The creators believe that a pro does a better job styling your hair than you do. I definitely agree & so do a lot of other people & that is one of the reasons the salon is so popular & successful. 

Besides salons, drybar also makes a bunch of products that you can buy online.  They have everything that will compliment the perfect blowout & help you to do it successfully at home.  


 Hot Toddy Heat & UV Protectant (50 ML 1.7 FL OZ. $16.00 100 ML 3.4 OZ $30.00) is one of the products that are available from drybar & I was fortunate enough to test it on my hair.


Our awareness has increased over the past 10 years, that there areso many factors such as the environment&  tools that damage your hair on a daily basis.  There is the sun, blowdryers, flatirons, curling irons, hot rollers that all provide heat to your hair & unfortunately don’t help it to ultimately look healthy & flourish in the long term.  Hot Toddy solves this problem.  Itis a very lightweight lotion that protects hair from heat up to 450 degrees F or232 degrees C.   It also prevent dryness, damage, & breakage & seals split ends. 


Ingredients include:

-Artichoke Leaf Extract which prevents dehydration and preserves hair cuticle. 

-Polymer Complex protects against heat from hot tools and helps to repair split ends. 

-UV Protectors (Octocrylene & Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane) provide protection from UVA and UVB rays. 

-Marrakesh Woods Fragrance features notes of sandalwood, jasmine and vanilla.

It has no parabens, sulfates, & phthalates & theydo not test on animals,

Lastly, it works on all hair types & is also safe for keratin & color treated hair.


To use, you apply a small dollop into damp hair & work it through prior to blowdrying. 


I have been using it for the past couple of weeks & I definitely see a big change.  My hair looks healthier, feel softer, & has less split ends.  It definitely does exactly what it claims to do.  I would recommend this product & think it is a good value for the price.  You can buy it & more productshere & find out locations of the salon if interested in trying:
