Frequently Asked Questions Can I use my Philips styler with hairspray, gel etc.? You can use hair products with your styler. However, we recommend that you use styling products that are specially created for use with heat. Here is why. Styling products made for use with heat protect your hair from damage Only use a styling product if the package clearly says that it can be used with a straightener or curler.
