This product did not work for me at all. First off, the second ingredient, if I recall correctly, is SD Alcohol 40, and that is very drying to my hair. Second, even though this is drying, it leaves an oily, greasy film on my hair, making it feel dirty. I didn't notice whether or not the product was actually working (by keeping my hair from getting dried out from the sun). Imagine dehydrated, limp hair that has been coated with a fine mist of sticky oil. Ick. The price on this is too high for what you get, and the scent is nothing remarkable. It smells kind of chemical-y (in contrast to most of Aveda's products, which smell botanical/natural to me), with a hint of cinnamon. I would not repurchase this and I wouldn't even use it again if someone gave it to me. I trashed most of the bottle I had.
