This product leaves my hair so silky soft. In general, since I started coloring my hair to cover grays, my hair can be a bit crunchier than I would like. With this product, it feels like its old silky, shiny self. And it's dirt cheap.

I found this product to be above average but not amazing, however it is quite effective. For some reason, serums work better on my hair when I blow dry straight ( I use the Ion oil free glosser) ; when I use this spray my hair has a lot of body and shine w/out buildup, but I find it is not moisturizing enough for my fine, naturally curly hair...I have only used it twice thus far, so maybe it will work better after time and I should probably use more of it. Given the price point and the ingredients though, this spray is far superior to other ones I have tried in the past (both low end and high end). That said, I am not sure if I will r/p or not. Overall, good product.

Accoridng to Sally's, the product is supposed to be:
•Protection and moisture for all types of color-treated hair
•Lightweight formula
•Paraben Free

Ion Color Defense Leave-in Protector detangles and balances moisture without weighing hair down. Helps maintain hair color by protecting from heat styling and environmental damage. Leaves hair soft, shiny and manageable.


I like that it makes my hair must smoother looking whenever I use it. I can definitely tell the diference between when I use it and when I do not. As a tribute to its effectiveness, the bottle is almost used up. I rarely finish products so this is a good thing :-)

I don't know for sure that it helps color stay in the hair shaft any longer than normal, but my hair seems to hold onto color longer when using this. Although this could be an effect of using more hair masks as well.
