The multitasking detangler that adds a veil of protection and glamorous shine.


Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Conditioning Spray


When we set out to curate the ultimate hair kit, we knew it needed to revolve around multitasking formulas that wouldn't weigh down hair. The Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Conditioning Spray immediately check off this box when one of our editors brought it to the table. Not only does the detangling formula double as a heat protectant, but it also acts as a shield against frizz, static, and breakage. What’s more, the leave-in treatment helps to save strands from daily environmental stressors, including the dehydrating and color-fading effects of UV rays. The immediate styling effects are equally impressive: picture brushes gliding effortlessly and a light-reflecting, glossy finish. Think of it as a hair-perfecting first step for any wet or dry style. 

Here's our experts' take on the product after giving it a test run on themselves and their clients.


"I'd recommend this to everyone, but especially those with damaged hair. It detangles without adding weight and moisturizes ends during a blow dry for a smooth, shiny finish."

—Derek Yuen, Hairstylist 

"This leave-in treatment is a staple in my kit! I like to use this as a base for my blow drys. It leaves the hair feeling so luxurious and shiny and the formula is lightweight, so you can layer other products over it."

—Bobby Eliot, Hairstylist 

"The Daily Damage Defence Conditioning Spray left my hair smoother, super glossy, and smelling incredible."

—Betina Goldstein, Owner and Designer of Doublemoss Jewelry
