Ask any good hairdresser about the golden rules for healthy hair and they'll tell you that the best heat protection spray is a must. Don't believe us? This viral clip from celebrity stylist Patrick Wilson is all the proof you need that it's essential.
Wilson, who has worked with Jodie Comer, Cindy Crawford and Mollie King, posted the video to Instagram, writing, "I always get asked, 'does heat protector really work?' Watch and learn kids 🤯".
The video has already racked up hundreds of comments from Wilson's shocked followers, with Comer commenting, "I'm living for this demo".
