I liked this product at first because it smells good. but it does not protect hair against straightening and it makes your hair stiff and dull. It doesn't really do much

I found this just sitting in my bathroom and decided to give it one more try. It feels like hairspray, crunchy and makes my hair tangled. It may protect against the heat but I just can't stand the smell and the way it makes my hair feel. Threw it away.

This stuff is awful. It made my hair stiff like stray and the smell-Yuck. It smells like cheap cologne.
The only thing good about this is the packaging. This is pricey for $12.95.

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.

i didn't like it too much. even though i made sure i didn't over spray on my hair, it made my hair pretty hard. i does hold style though. but i rather have just soft silky hair without any hold.

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'm surprised this hasn't been in the database!
Now, as a product junkie, when a beauty guru raves about a hair product on YT, I just have to try it for myself. I was pretty pleased with this product, and for one it smells amazing.
The only reason I won't repurchase, is because I don't like sprays, as you have to add a lot more, and the weird thing is, when I used my CHI flat iron, my ends would get frizzy, even after applying generous amounts and letting it air dry.
I have also found a better alternative that is a lotion instead of a spray.

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.
