I used to looove this stuff, and would spray it on my hair and clothes all the time just to make them smell fresher. I would also of course use it for its intended purpose but I used it for its scent more than anything else. That's because I can't say I ever saw much difference with heat styling. A couple of months ago I ran out and went to walgreens to get a new bottle - lo and behold the smell and consistency has changed completely to this nasty sticky alcohol-y hairspray stuff. It's actually the exact smell of tresemme's hairspray if you've ever used that. Personally, I threw out the bottles of their hairspray that I bought previously because of that nauseating, permeating smell (it also made my hair super stiff). Imagine my disappointment that they've changed the heat tamer spray to that. I will have to find a new product to replace it. Shame.

I was skeptical of this product because of the cheap price, being let down by Tresemme before, and the product sprays out very light. How could this protect my hair? It worked beautifully, and best of all, my bangs were not greasy. This product works because it contains ingredients that have been proven through research to protect hair from heat. The ingredients are: glycerin, proplyene glycol, and cetrimonium chloride. I did some further research on what ingredients make a good heat protectant, and this is what I found out: According to thebeautybrains.com, blow drying hair is extra damaging because it removes water on the surface and from deeper inside the hair strand, which causes hair to become brittle. Products containing glycerin & propylene glycol can slow this water evaporation. They say the ingredient, hydrolyzed wheat protein polysiloxane copolymer, was shown to reduce hair cracking. A low-molecular weight conditioning agent, Cetrimonium chloride is helpful to protect hair from flat ironing, and was found to actually strengthen the hair when heat was applied. The science-yhairblog also reported that polysiloxane copolymer, P/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer, & Polyquaternium-55 protected hair from heat. Interestingly, dimethicones used alone were not found to protect hair from heat damage. This is news to me! I assumed my serums filled with all kinds of cones were protecting my hair, and was surprised to find out it is these particular humectant and conditioning agents that do the work. The main ingredients I will look for in heat protectant products will be glycerin, propylene glycol, & cetrimonium chloride. The heat tamer spray has all three! I have the gvp version of Paul Mitchell’s skinny serum, and the one n’ only argan oil spray treatment—a lot of people who do reviews here say they use these products as heat protectants. Alone these help fight frizz, but if I flat iron my hair seems dry, and now I know why! The silicones need to be in a product with these conditioning agents and humectants.

I have pretty frizzy, unmanageable hair that requires regular keratin treatments at hair salons to be maintained with minimal effort. However, keratin treatments are really expensive and I got tired of paying for them so I decided to try various hair products instead. I spray this on towel dried hair and blow it till it's just slightly wet. I spray a little more on and apply some anti frizz serum before proceeding to style my hair. AND IT WORKS. It makes my hair soft and smooth, the difference is noticeable when I simply blow my hair and run my fingers through my hair. Bonus points for its nice fruity scent as well. Highly recommend this. I wish I found it sooner!

A product I can only claim to use as insurance. Probably more psychological. Have not noticed measured effects on hair before-after, but then these things are possibly more molecular anyway (???) Will continue to use.

I like this! I curly my hair and in order to avoid damaging and over drying my hair with heat, I spray about two sprays of this in a quarter inch section of my hair, take my hand to distribute it through the ends, and curl. Not oily, no residue, no crunchiness. Leaves hair soft and manageable. I like the spray nozzle as well!

I have fine hair, color treated, naturally wavy from ears down, shoulder length.This product does not leave my hair sticky, oily or crunchy. I spray ,comb through damp hair, blow dry it on days I don't feel like doing much with my hair. I also use it before curling or flat ironing my hair. It doesn't weigh down my hair.I would repurchase. Price is cheap too.

Bought it based on reviews. This does nothing for my hair. I use flat iron a few times a week, and it doesn't prevent any dryness that comes from damage. No amazing smell or packaging either, just meh.

I love this product. I have been using this heat tamer for about 1 year now and never had to complain. I curl my hair almost everyday so it really helps. I love that it has a lock or unlock for safety reasons. I would definitely recommend it.

I barely use heat on my hair, so I don't usually use this. I used to use heat a lot and this was my go-to heat protectant. It has a really nice smell and doesn't make my hair sticky or gross. It makes my hair soft and protects it from the heat. Would repurchase if I was planning on using heat.
