To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this because of all the reviews. I am a cosmetologist. Mother owns a salon, I’ve been basically raised in one. I have thick long coarse hair. This popped up when I was purchasing a 3 barrel curling iron, I seen the pics and reviews, I decided to try something new. Unfortunately for me, few mins after using it, it left my hair feeling dry, straw like and surprisingly made it more frizzy. The smell.. it’s ok. Nothing too bad. In my opinion you can buy Salon grade products at the salon for the same price or for a couple more dollars. You get what you pay for with beauty products more so.
I'm sure some people were not bothered, but I found the smell so overpowering, thatt I couldn't use it. I used it one day and the baby powder scent, which I would normally like, was just cloyingly present; I couldn't wait to wash my hair! I am sure it is just one of those things that bothers one person, and not the next, but not for me!
Decent product so far. I should wait a bit longer to post this reviews since I've only used it a handful of times. It doesn't leave my hair greasy and if you're expecting an oily residue, you will be disappointed, because it's more of an alcohol / oil feel.
Update after several months of use, I’m not a fan of this heat protector. I have wavy, coarse hair and this dries my hair out. I’ve especially noticed his recently because in the Spring, my hair is somewhat frizzy, which doesn’t usually happen. I believe it’s the alcohol in this product. I won’t be using this anymore.
My bottle also arrived damaged. There were two small chips of plastic in the box, which I think are required for the sprayer to function properly. I don't have any non-cleaning-product spray bottles around the house, so I guess I'm ordering some from this site. I'm really disappointed in this packaging. I absolutely expected more from a product that costs in excess of fifteen dollars. I will update if I'm able to use the product.
I’m pretty picky about my hair products and am always on the hunt for a cheaper way to calm my coarse, thick and frizzy hair. For the price, the product works fine it’s just not great. There are much better products out there but they are also more expensive. The scent reminds me of a heavily perfumed grandma. If youre on a budget and need something to control frizz and protect hair, this will work but if you can afford it, find a better product from more reputable brands.
Okay this spray is GREAT. It makes my hair soft, protects it, seriously my hair looks amazing. I do not like the smell though. I have to use it very sparingly compared to my last spray, and it smells like a baby's butt. So if you don't like baby powder smell, it might not be for you. But it's super nice for your hair and I really do love it otherwise. If I don't spray too much of it it's not so bad.
This doesn't leave my fairly straight, thin, color-treated hair feeling any softer or shinier after use but feels like it adds a bit of protection from heated tools like the hair dryer. Still looking for the right product.
