This is alright. It's definitely better than the Pantene heat protection & shine spray for fine hair, WAY better! It smells a lot better (still fruity, though) and has an even wider, finer mist, which I love. It also is great for travel because of the new lock and unlock thing attached. And of course, it's super affordable and very accessible, since it is a drugstore product. This definitely protects my hair and does its job, but I don't like how wet it is. I have a problem with water-based heat protectant sprays. I definitely prefer serums, like the Chi Silk Infusion, even though they definitely don't cover as much of your hair as a spray would. My HG heat protectant is the Chi Shine Infusion, which isn't sticky at all. Though you don't need very much of Heat Tamer Spray, I still use a lot, and it's VERY greasy! It makes my hair very oily and leaves tons of buildup. It takes super long to dry - I find that I have to spray it in my hair once I get out of the shower, even if I'm using a curling iron and not a blowdryer. It takes at least 20 minutes to dry, and even then, it makes my hair feel very wet and damaged when I curl each piece. Overall, I do not recommend this product. EDIT: I have found that this is a great leave-in! It's vitamin enriched and is great for my ends. And it makes your hair very soft and shiny, just make sure to use as little as you can while still distributing it evenly throughout the hair! So right now I'm leaning towards a maybe for repurchasing. I'm not in love with it but I definitely don't dislike it.
