I've tried this product for over a month now. While it makes my hair feel softer while it's still damp and combs more easily, that's the only difference I've found. The condition of my hair is no different than when I use my Biolage leave-in.
Way too expensive to use as a detangler.

I love the Protein mask, so I got this. Not at all comparable in results. I can tell the ends of my hair is slightly better, less splitting- not enough to justify the price however.

This is going back. I don't know if it would strengthen my hair if used over time, but it DID cause some of my my hair to stretch and snap like rubber bands. I'd forgotten about products that do this. I know I encountered them "back in the day", but I guess I thought we'd gotten past this. Apparently not.
I had a serious problem with the way this product felt in my hair. Waxy dirty, and dying to tangle. It felt like touching a dryer sheet. I had to shampoo it out. Could it be that protein isn't appropriate for my hair? When I used "Life Drops" from Terax (a protein leave-in), it saved my hair. This spray from Fekkai actually has the same "warm vanilla sugar" scent as Life Drops, it's just stronger and longer lasting. Not a plus for me. I can *just* tolerate this fragrance, but I'd probably become sensitive to it before finishing out the bottle. If I weren't taking it back, that is.
I know some people love it, it's just not for me. If it's not for you, at least you know you're not alone.

I picked up this item at Sephora. It works great as a protein fortifier to repair my hair. I noticed less breakage during the last weeks. The product smells great, fresh and light like soya milk, instantly absorbed when applied. As it is a protein fortifier, do not expect it to give great shine, softness etc..A lot of people do not understand this. A fortifier strengthens the hair, thus the hair is bound to become slightly stiff and maybe even stick-like in certain instances. As a matter of fact my hair ends was stiff and appeared a tad dryer than usual. I counter this with a hydrating hair mask from Biolage. The effect is same, if not better than getting a luxrious hair treatment form the salon.
Verdict: I will definitely stock up on this item if they ever have a sale.

ick ick ick... i didn't like this stuff at all
1. its will overcoat your hair and make it look extremely dirty and oily.
2. the smell is rather cheap.
3. its full of dimethicone and silicones which are no way of repairing your hair.
4. it has wheat protein which is fine and good for your hair but its definitely no miracle secret to repair it.
overall the ingredient list is nothing special i only see 2 good ingredients which are the proteins.. and the way its formulated is just nothing special and these proteins can be found in much better working products.

This stuff is great. I use some every night after my shower. It makes my hair shiny and healthy, stronger as well. It is a little expensive, but one bottle has lasted me a long time. The smell is just okay. It smells like Bath and Body Works "Rice Flower and Shea"

Disappointing. I've been using this for a week and it's had no effect on my hair which continued to get worse due to exposure to the elements. A waste of money as far as I'm concerned. I don't understand the brand's prices or good reputation.

In one use this makes my hair like shining silk and it smells great!

I love this stuff... I've been using it right after I got my hair colored. I noticed how much of a difference it repaired my color damaged hair. although the deep conditioning creme would have been better. I would definetly repurchase this.

This didn't impress me. I love the shampoo and conditioner in this line, but the spray didn't do much for me. I only used trial size, so I'm not sure if this is an issue with the full size, but the spray nozzle is ridiculous. It doesn't mist at all - rather just shoots a bunch of thick product out. I have to spray it in hands first and then run through hair. Why even make it a spray packaging? Anyway this smells great (just like the rest of the line), but made my hair feel a bit crispy. I think it's too protein heavy to use on my hair as a daily leave-in. I wouldn't repurchase and probably won't even use up the trial size.

Just bought this at Bath & Body Works. Love the Fekkai line, especially the glossing cream and shine mist, but this stuff was a disappointment. I have fine, straight hair that I use leave-in treatments in so it continues to look healthy, and this stuff was just way too heavy for my hair. Anywhere above my ends and my hair felt so greasy. It did spray nice and seemed like it would last a long time, but I'm gonna take it back tonight. I can find something better to spend $20 on. I LOVE, LOVE Phyto Phytomist. It smells great and makes my hair supersoft, never greasy at all.....

I have wavy hair and this stuff works amazingly for the ends of it. It defines, softens, adds an amazing scent and strengthens. Sorry girls, it doesn't actually CORRECT already split hair. You'll never find anything that does that --get a hair cut.
This product might not be good if you plan on brushing your hair after putting it in.

I bought this last weekend at Bath and Body Works for $20.
I have thin, layered curly hair that reaches a few inches past my shoulders and is very damaged at the ends.
I was hoping that this would be the savior product that banished damaged hair from my life forever, but though the change wasn't that dramatic, the leave-in has made my hair softer and feel more moisturized. I particularly like to spray it on my wet hair after a dip in the pool, comb my hair out, and then let it air dry if I don't have time to wash my hair right then and there.
Though I think it's pricey for the minimal results, I love the consistency of this product. I've tried both spray and lotion leave-ins, and this slightly-thicker-than-milk consistency has to be my favorite. The scent isn't great, but bearable; I would describe it as a sweet, foamy smell.
Despite the advertising, I don't think there is enough protein in this product to give your hair straw-like properties, even with daily use. I use the product 2-3 times a day, plus a protein-infused conditioner, plus a protein-rich deep conditioner twice a week, and I have yet to have it dry out my hair.
Though not a fantastic product, I would repurchase this simply because I have yet to find anything better as a daily leave-in.

This product works great if you keep it away from your roots...I think that's why some of my hair looks oily..I sprayed too much on....my hair looks and feels very good in a lot of areas that I lightly misted...so the key is only spray alittle and keep it on the ends and at the most half way up, a little goes a long way...good for before you straighten or blow dry

Biggest waste of money ever.
Too much protien is bad for your hair and will dry it out.
Plus it doesn't moisturize.
It says it will but let me tell ya, it lies.

Oh. my. god. This stuff is terrible! The instant I used this my hair looked greasy, felt greasy, and did not feel "repaired" or "moisturized" as the bottle claims it will. My hair honestly started to mold into funny shapes as I was drying my hair, as if I put cooking grease all over my ends. wth. I felt like taking a shower all over again. The product is expensive, there's not a lot of it, and the spray mechanism is useless! I am returning this...pronto! What a waste of money!

I got this product off Sephora. First off, the bottle was a lot smaller than I thought, second to be honest, it did not untangle my hair (which you would think something with moisturizers would do). Lastly, I niether saw nor felt all difference in my hair. I was very disappointed.

I could easily be casted as the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz due to the condition of my hair- and i can do a good skip or two :) so, I decided to invest in a product to do something to my hair! anything! (well, not make it worse)
After hearing the FF hype, I thought i would get this. And i have seen some great results! It's a milky kinda spray, and this really gets my hair stable i.e it's like my hair is dying to go scarecrow-spazz on me but this is keeping it tame, moisturised, feels STRONGER, and keeps the coarse look at bay- and this is amazing for me!
Definitely love it and has definitely helped my hair with added protection against going haywire.
The only downside is the price. 19 euros for 100ml. Not tragic, but not cheap.
UPDATE: this seemed to dry out my hair the more i used it WTH? anyway, do not use it anymore.

Good product! I am on my second bottle, and I'm hooked! I love the whole Protein Rx line! It is kind of a 'milky' spray; it's lightweight but adds softeness and a little body to my fine, but thick, overprocessed hair. My only complaint is that a bottle doesn't last me very long!
Age: Unknown Skin: Dry Hair: Blond Eyes: Brown
Horrid product! Left my hair like bark, couldn't drag a comb through it. Given the dreamy description, I fully expected a near-miracle product. My hair felt exactly as though I had sprayed it heavily with hairspray while wet. Comes in an ugly, generic white plastic bottle.
