Hair protectant: especially if you have dry hair, you’d want to protect it from the heat.  Constant styling of your hair with heated tools like a flat / curling iron, can be damaging.  Also heat protectants add shine & help combat frizz!

Hair spray: You’ve spent some time styling your hair, you’d want the look to last.  This is actually the hairspray that they use in the salon I go to; I love it because it has a flexible hold without making hair hard or crunchy.
