I bought this because it was being heavily pushed by a haircare board poster. Unfortunately, it did not work for me. I do not hate the product, it's not in my Top 10 Awful Beauty Products list. I just would never repurchase, let alone recommend, Living Proof Restore Instant Protection Spray.The pros... this is extremely light. So light it will never be able to weigh down even the greasiest hair. This is silicone-free so it doesn't build up in your hair. I found that it does add a tiny bit of shine, although nothing significant. It doesn't make the hair crunchy. But that's about as far as the list of pros go. Now as for the cons... starting with ingredients, alcohol denat is its #1 ingredient. That's a giant no for me. I find (drying) alcohols damaging for my hair as they dry it out leading to breakage. Some don't have any issues. I definitely do. This did not hydrate my hair in the slightest nor make it any easier to comb through. So I needed a separate leave-in conditioner in order to make it "work". A little amount of this product does NOT go a long way. I went through the bottle in record time. Given its majorly overpriced for the ingredient list, that's a deal breaker alone. Maybe if I had naturally greasy, super healthy hair this would for me. But alas, nope. Just nope.INGREDIENT LIST:Alcohol Denat., Hydrofluorocarbon 152a, Water, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol Dibenzoate, Octafluoropentyl Methacrylate (OFPMA), Polyglyceryl‐10 Pentaoleate, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Linoleamidopropyl Ethyldimonium Ethosulfate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, PPG‐5‐Ceteth‐20, Panthenol, Fragrance, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol.

I use Timeless shampoo and, in winter, the conditioner as well, but honestly I don't think this product provides any additional benefits. It also seems to weigh down my long, fine hair if I use it in conjunction with my other LP products.

Very expensive but I can get by with only washing my hair once a week! At 54, this is my go-to shampoo for my long, highlighted, fine, thinning hair.

Long story short, the major reason I don't like this product is because it is too powdery and leaves a white cast on my hair, and I my hair is not even dark. I also find the smell to be overpowering and lingering. I used up a whole travel size can of this and was never completely satisfied, I had to work it in to my roots with my fingers very heavily and I hate the gritty texture against my fingers. I wanted to love it and jump on the LP hype train but I find Batiste to be better than LP because it is easier to work into my roots and cheaper.

Claim to prolong styling and to be suitable for all hair types. My hair is dry, fine and frizzy and the single thing it does to my hair is making it kind of drier the second day, but also less frizzy. It has a very pleasant smell and no greasy awesome texture, it's a pleasure to use. It doesn't help my curly styles stay curly longer, it doesn't help my straightened hair stay straight the next day. I used it to air dry my hair and instead of my usual voluminous waves, I ended up with some limp second-day dry looking no volume messy hair. I like that it keeps frizz at the bay and will continue to use it.
