The smell of this is terrible! It smells like men's cheap cologne. ugh! I used this four times and each time I used this, I wanted to wash my hair. I cant stand the smell of this. Plus, this made my hair stiff like hairspary. I have thick hair and my hair is better off without this junk.I'd rather not protect my hair from heat than use this product again.

It works... makes hair kind of crunchy and the smell is pretty nasty but it does help with the heat

Oy... The smell! This product is HEAVILY scented, so if you're sensitive to certain perfumes, or you wear any kind of other scented product, be aware that CHI Iron Guard overpowers pretty much anything else in a 6 foot radius of your head. I am not a fan of scented products in general, because they often trigger migraines for me, plus I wear a very subtle perfume which is easily overwhelmed by styling product scents. But I hadn't encountered anything quite so strong until I bought a bottle of this stuff... I used it twice, and the results were ok, but the smell was the deal breaker.

I love this product. A lot of people complain about it smelling like something for a man, but I really don't mind it, and it's only initial -- fades away after you straighten. I use other heat protectors, but this is the only one that actually makes my hair feel better over time using it. Way less breakage .It's a little expensive, but you can find it on sale most of the time. HG product that I always have. Love it.

Erinnx is right about the smell & texture. But, the slight stickiness goes away once hair is fully dry. The directions say to use this on dry hair but I use it on towel dried hair before I blow dry it. After my hair is fully dry, it feels very soft and the stickiness goes away. I think I enjoy this more than the Redken heat spray they use @ my salon.

Why, why for so many years did I never use a heat protector?!
The first spray I tried was awful so when it ran out I bought this, because hey, I own a CHI so why not. It also actually works, which is a plus.
I find the smell very pleasant. And yes, while at first it is sticky and stiff in my hair, once I run the flat iron through, it's totally fine.
It does tend to make my hair greasier than before, so I end up washing it more often (and thus straightening it more). That is a drawback, but my hair still feels a million times better than before I started using it.

At first I didn't like this product because it smelled quite boyish and I felt it was sticky. I still used it because it really does save your hair from heat. I began to start to like it when i realized it makes your hair silky soft and the stickiness goes away. I still hate the smell but it doesn't linger in your hair. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who uses a lot of heat and wants their hair to be protected even though it is a bit expensive i feel its very worth it.

A great flat iron spray. You only need a little bit. It does not feel starchy at all. My hair is very fine and gets oily easily. If you use too much of this, you hair might become greasy if it is like mine. The smell is pretty good and the price is not too bad. They even make a travel size.

I have tried many many heat protectors and this is by far one of my favourites!! It's easy to use and i esspecially like it because i don't blow dry my hair and i need a heat protector that works on dry hair. Just a few squirts and Voila protected hair!! I've noticed less dring of my ends while using this item too!
Over all great item i recommend it all the time!!!

I loved this product. I used this with my Cortex flat iron and the combination was great. It made my hair so silky smooth after I finished and I felt like it was really protecting it. It didn't seem to weigh my hair down or make it greasy or anything. I got it for $6.99 from Marshalls (also known as TJ Maxx or Winners in some areas). I gave it a 4 because I am sure there are better products out there but this one is great for me and especially the price.
I see a lot of people complaining about it making their sticky. It made mine sticky too the first time I used it but then I realized that was because I had a flat iron I had been using for four years and had never cleaned! So look out for that. It may be your flat iron, rather than the product.
