Find Your Favorite: Which Briogeo Heat Protectant is Right for Me?

Welcome to Find Your Favorite, where we do a deep dive into similar Briogeo products to help you decide which one is best for your hair type, texture, need, and preference. Today we're helping to determine which Briogeo heat protectant is best for you! 

Briogeo has two options for protecting your locks from heat styling: Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection + Heat Protectant Crème and Color Me Brilliant Mushroom + Bamboo Color Protect Primer. Let's take a look at what these stylers do, what they have in common, and what sets them apart!

Thermal protection is an absolute must-have for anyone who styles their hair using hot tools (blow dryers included!). Heat can be incredibly damaging to the hair and is one of the major causes of breakage. Using heat without protection can also lead to color fade for color-treated hair!

What's similar?

Both our Farewell Frizz Crème and our Color Me Brilliant Primer are scientifically proven to protect hair up to 450 degrees F, which means you can blow dry, straighten, or curl your hair without risking damage to your locks. Both protectants are meant to be applied to wet hair before styling, and both are vegan and Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free.

What's different?

Each heat protectant has an additional benefit. The Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Crème is designed to lock in hydration and lockout frizz-causing humidity - in fact, it's scientifically proven to decrease frizz for up to 48 hours. This super-smoothing styler is best for anyone struggling with frizz or looking to impart smoothness and shine to their locks.


Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection + Heat Protectant Creme


Our Color Protect Primer, on the other hand, is all about maintaining vibrancy for color-treated hair. As part of the Color Me Brilliant Collection, this styler features our Color Protection Complex: a synergistic blend of Turkey Tail Mushroom and Bamboo Leaf Extract that work together to prevent color fade - perfect for anyone who's concerned about keeping their color vibrant for longer.

While both heat protectants are silicone-free, the Farewell Frizz Crème has a very smooth texture and feel, perfect for preventing frizz and locking in moisture. The Color Me Brilliant Primer feels a little more lightweight - closer to a light lotion texture than a true cream.

So which to choose?

When looking for a heat protectant, it's essential to ask yourself: what other benefits do I want out of my product and what do I want my end results to be? If keeping your color brighter for longer is your goal, you'll love our Color Me Brilliant Primer. If fighting frizz and having smooth, shiny hair is what you're after, Farewell Frizz is perfect for you!
