Smelled like chemicals, was sticky, I don't think it dried out my hair but it never felt nice after flat ironing. The nozzle also made it super easy to accidentally spray all over my face. Switching to a higher end protector made a WORLD of difference to my hair!

I really like this heat protectant, ive never heard of the brand but its a winner for me! I always spray this onto my hair before I flat iron or hair dry my hair and it leaves it looking healthy and shiny.The smell is pretty nice too ill admit.The only thing I dont like in particular is the spray bottle it tends to just spray only one area of my hair instead of misting my entire head.Its a nice alternative to more expensive protectants.I would reconmend it if your looking for a heat protectant with nice protection and price as well.

Pretty good flat iron spray. It smells kinda like lime and grapefruit. My hair is a lot easier to straighten now and I've actually noticed it helps stop it from going wild and crazy and curling overnight because I straighten my hair at night. It does take a little while to dry which sometimes bugs me but once its dry it works pretty good.

An okay heat protectant. Im not sure if it actually did protect my hair though. my hair never felt soft or looked good after i used it, if anything a bit stringy and sticky. it also has a horrible smell. REALLY bad, kinda like medicine. i wouldnt recommend this at all. use treseme heat tamer spray!!

This product worked fairly well on me but made my hair slightly dry. When I used it on my sister, however, her hair practically started breaking off it was so drying (she has very curl hair)! After looking at the ingredients, we noticed that it contained alcohol so maybe your hair will be protected from heat but it will instead be damaged by all of the alcohol you're spraying onto your hair. Be careful of this as many styling products contain alcohol. Try Nexus Heat Protectxx, its alcohol free and works very well IMO.

No... Just no. It makes my fine hair feel gross and it dries out my ends like crazy. After using it for awhile, the ends of my hair were completely frizzy looking and just gross. Even when I used nothing on my hair before flat-ironing, I NEVER had that problem. I had high hopes for this, but it didn't work out for me...

In the great scheme of things, this product lives out its promise by protecting hair from the heat and preserving shine. Yes, this product does work.

However, what makes this product inferior to other heat protecting sprays is the slightly (VERY SLIGHT) sticky residue it leaves in the hair (and hands) that sometimes gives my hair a shiny but sticky and hardened appearance especially near the ends. The overall result is not soft; it's a bit like what you might get with hairspray.

The main reason I won't repurchase is because of its FINISH! the finish isn't nice, supple and shiny like Tresemme's heat spray, and it's slightly hard and sticky sometimes.

this is the best flat iron spray i came across in a long time Lasts a long time and does not leave all that heavy buildup in my hair ,which i absolutely can't stand..The only think that i am not happy about is the smell, its like all the citruses mixed together which is a bit overwhelming..but overall - good product , for a good price :)

I used to LOVE this stuff (I use it along with the silk drops the line offers) but ever since I discovered CHI's Flat Iron Spray this doesn't even compare. I spray this on my hair after it's blow dried and it makes it a little more manageable but it doesn't leave an end result like the CHI spray does. I really am NOT a fan of the smell, either, normally the smell of a product is never usually a complaint of mine. This leaves my hair "sticky" compared to the "silky" my hair is after the CHI Spray. Essentially this is better than using nothing at all, but really I do prefer the CHI Spray. The CHI Spray is like $13 at Wal Mart & this is $6...but the CHI Spray lasted me over 3 months...well worth the price, in my opinion, and delivers much better results than this does.
