As good as a straightening serum gets. I try not to burn my hair too frequently, because dry and split ends are a fast and very obvious result. But, whenever I do iron them, I always use this and get lots of compliments, because, firstly, even a slight change of style attracts positive attention, and secondly, my hair gets so sleek and chick and they shine like mad. I donít recommend using it on dry hair right before ironing Ė tried it with ugly results.
Flaming heck! This stuff's brillient. I have very damaged processed hair, however I still like to iron the ends. Well this makes your hair come out like you've had it done at a salon. I got it based on the great reviews on MUA, trust me I was not dissapointed. This is quite expensive and I don't know if there's a similar product on the market that's cheaper, but I woud definitely repurchase. Do not use on your roots otherwise your hair will end up greasy (unless you wash it everday).
Not a bad product at all, but might be too heavy for those with thinner hair. It smells good. Adds shine and helps protect from the flat iron. The packaging is terrible though. I can see how these could break easily when dropped.
Does a great job on my curly frizzy hair. Best I have ever got with home straightening.
Use with Lusterising lotion as well for added shimmer.
Spray on dry hair before using irons, leaves it smooth and silky without the grease.
Will def buy again, only gripe is bottle is awkward shape to hold.
Although the packaging and the price are not that great, this product does everything it claims to do. The heat really did disperse away from my hair, providing a lightweight coating before the flat iron touched my hair, the shine was incredible, and personally, the best aspect of this product was the speed with which I could get my hair straight. After, blow drying in small sections, I would spray this on and then flat iron, and my hair was like SILK, even straighter than when I get it done at the salon or professionally. Will keep repurchasing when I run out. This product works. Excellent.
I Loved this. This makes my hair so shiney and really helps get my afro hair super strait. Everyone loves the smell. I only thing i dont like is the packaging. It can make it kind of hard to spray if your hands are slippery.Its still expensive ($28) but i dont mind paying for things that work. I love this entire line.
I've been searching for the perfect flat iron spray for quite some time, and if this isn't perfect its as close as it comes. I have super thick hair that looks absolutely horrible after blowdrying. S-Factor Heat Defender leaves hair soft (not crunchy), VERY shiny and straight!! It smells great, too. It's pricey, but a little goes a long way so I would say its worth it.
This is, without a doubt, the BEST flat iron spray I have ever used. I've gone through Farouk Systems Iron Guard 44 (good), Aquage Flat Iron Shine Spray (great), and this, the S-Factor Heat Defender. It works absolutely flawlessly if you, like me, have dry, chemically treated, damaged hair; it changes your hair completely, adding a brilliant luster, smoothing all flyaways, and reducing split ends. You can either spray in damp hair before blowdrying, or apply directly before flat-ironing. I prefer the latter. You'll notice "smoke" rising from your iron when you go to smooth your hair with the iron: don't worry: that's pure heat being dispersed AWAY from the hair shaft. The natural and essential oils in this product are amazing as well. I was very impressed. HOWEVER . . . the packaging is pure and utter sh*t. A friend of mine shattered a bottle of mine before I ever got to use it, simply by dropping it. I broke my next one, but simply put the remains in a different spray bottle. Not quite as aesthetically appealing, but not nearly as tricky or flimsy. The product itself is . . . wow. You must try this.
