It takes a lot of heat for your hair to look flawless—from drying to styling. But when you jump right in, you’re not giving your delicate hair follicles a fighting chance.

To prevent damage, and for a better overall look, use a heat protectant. When heat is applied directly to the hair, the hair shaft opens, making it vulnerable to damage or even color loss. But protectants cover the follicle so it stays sealed and the shaft maintains moisture, so your hair’s texture, shine, and fluidity will stay gorgeous (plus your heating tools will work better!).

With cold mornings coming, there will be less air drying and more blow drying. Can your strands take the heat? We’ve gathered our favorite b-glowing Heat Protectants, and all of them will help safeguard your locks while you have fun playing with different looks!

Sachajuan, Straight and Shine Spray: From the beloved brand known for its simple but effective hair care, we love this spray because it cares for you hair in the best ways: heat protection, added shine, touchable texture, and it’s easy to rinse out.

Shea Terra Organics, Argan Face and Body Oil: Hailing from Morocco, this specialized treatment is made from the Argania Spinosa tree, which produces oil that has twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil. You’ll reap reparative benefits, and it’s 100% natural. While you can use it everywhere on your body (score!), it also helps moisturize dry hair.

Oscar Blandi, Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray: This dry spray is packing keratin proteins that nourish and strengthen, so you’re fully covered. We love it because it’s also great for restyling, so you can reshape your look throughout the day with added shine and stronger hold.

Rare E’l’ements, Marula Cocktail: No, it’s not for drinking, but it is a great mix of nutrient-rich oils. You can use it as a leave-in conditioner for instant shine, added moisture, breakage prevention, shaping, styling, and flyaway and frizz control. It made our list because it’s lightweight and silicone free.

Leonor Greyl, Huile de Palme: This treatment can be used as a pre-shampoo or on its own, and it’s natural oils work to soften hair. It’ll detangle, as well as protect, with gentle, environmentally friendly ingredients.

«MAKE BEAUTY. ICONIC: Linda Rodin -

Our BEAUTY ICON, Rodin Olio Lusso’s Linda Rodin is a natural—both at what she does and how she does it. She craves simple skincare with natural ingredients that fight impurities while recovering genuine beauty.

Coming from a style background, we were eager to learn about how the two worlds collide and how they can work together, especially when it comes to b-glowing brands Linda loves!

Describe the perfect Saturday in NYC. 
Waking up late, having a cappuccino and going with Winky to the flea market. And having nothing else to do the rest of the day. 

As someone who's worked both actively in fashion and now beauty, how important is it that these two styles complement each other?
Well, I think I was very lucky to have been first in the fashion business. It enabled me to have access to the best models, makeup and hair stylists in the world, so I could let them try my products. That's how the buzz happened. Word of mouth 

What is the best beauty advice you've ever received? 
Always keep your skin clean and fresh

If you were stuck with one piece of makeup what would it be?
Lipstick, for sure

From one woman to the next, whom do you admire? 
I admire women who juggle careers with their families, women who make a difference in the world by helping other people, and women who allow themselves to not be too affected by how they "should" look or feel. It's all right to be yourself. 

Linda’s b-glowing Product Picks:

Art of Shaving, Ocean Kelp—for the men in my life
butter London—love the colours!
BY TERRY—so creamy, especially the new moisturizing #301 lipstick
Japonesque, Manicure Set and Artisan Tweezer-Slant. I love japonesque sets of all kinds
Paul & Joe, eye colors CS. I adore Paul & Joe packaging 
Peter Thomas Roth, Ultra-Lite, Oil-Free Sunblock. Keeps my skin protected but not greasy
RGB—hip and gorgeous
Deborah Lippman—wonderful colors. 
Mason Pearson, Pocket Boar Bristle Brush.
