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 am bewildered at all the positive reviews for Joico heat protectant. The odor was a lot like old-school hairspray, not at all pleasant. Left my fine, bleached hair vaguely tacky, also much like hairspray. Didn't seem to do anything positive that I could tell. I started using Olaplex #6 (rated only for blow dry) and #7, the oil (rated up to 450 degrees), shortly after giving up on the Joico heat protectant That combination works much better for me. Not to mention they smell amazing, give me great shine, and fight frizz. But sadly they are much more expensive.
Normally I use Paul Mitchell Hot off The Press to spray & curl with my hot irons, but I chose this as a cheaper alternative. It completely didn't work, and I could pretty much tell right away from the curls I made that it wouldn't last. Sadly, it barely held my curls even 30 minutes. The smell was very chemical, not pleasant whatsoever. I will either return this or give it away
I really wanted to like this as I've liked other Joico products. But I did not like this spray. It has some hold to it and my made my hair feel a bit sticky and stiff. And I could not stand the smell. I think other people might enjoy the scent but I didn't.
