I bought this thinking it would be the same as the styling cream but in a spray format. Boy, was I wrong, it caused me cysts behind my ears where my hair touches. Also, as other reviewers had mentioned previously, it truly does make your hair drier. You can feel it the next time you wash you hair after using this product. It feels like straw. It does not make your hair more manageable, and although it is not sticky, it does make your hair feel dirtier sooner. The packaging is convenient though, and good for traveling. At this price point, and for not seeing results, and breaking out, it is not worth buying.

ok, i think this spray is misunderstood. i have the frizzy coarse asian hair that is kind of curly when i get out of the shower and dries to naturally poofy. i prefer my hair to be pin straight- think fine blonde pin straight hair, this helps me achieve that look, though im sure there are cheaper products that do that as well. first off, DO NOT follow the directions on the can. the mist is very fine and doesnt really dispense that much product, so you CANNOT use this in place of a blowdry cream like it suggests. when my hair is damp, i smooth styling/straightening cream through my hair and blowdry with a roundbrush. only AFTER my hair is dry, do i spray liberally with this spray and flatiron. sometimes i'll spray it section by section AS i flatiron. result: pin straight hair a la vogue ads. the problem with this product is, that it's not heavy enough on the hair to use for blowdrying. you need a thicker consistency to blowdry with, that will give hair a little weight. oh and finally, i finish off with a shine serum

I bought this spray when it first came out because i've used other products from this line before. This spray is just okay, really nothing special. It smells bad, but that's really the least of the problems with this. This contains a lot of alcohol, which dries out hair and is just bad for your hair. It's more like an actual hairspray to me? Not really for helping my hair stay straight. It actually made my hair frizzier. And I honestly didn't really notice that it kept my hair straight. This isn't the worst product i've ever used, but it definitely is not the best or worth buying again. Especially, for how expensive this was I would expect it to work a lot better than it does. I prefer John Freida's semi permanent 3 day straight spray you can get at walmart for $10 over this. It works much better than this for a lot cheaper. And, not to mention the John Freida spray lasts way longer than this one. The can for living proof goes out fast. To me, not worth it. But everyone has their own opinion, I just know that I will not buy this again.

I don't understand why this is getting such bad reviews. I have fine hair that is naturally wavy and can also sometimes be quite frizzy, but if I use this before drying my hair, the end result is beautiful straight hair with hardly any fly-aways (which allows me to avoid using hair straighteners to get a similar result). It is one of my must-have repeat-buy products.

I LOVED this, but the last bottle I bought (total of 3) seems to be less effective? I am wondering if they changed the formula. Previously this made my hair silky and straight and helped fight frizz. I use a lot in my long hair and it's really expensive, but I figured, what the heck, it works! The new bottle, I swear, is different. My hair seemed frizzier and more sticky, although the end result was OK. My favorite curling iron died, though, so I'm not sure who's the culprit (I don't like to straight iron all the way to the ends).

This review is for the Straight Making styling spray for fine - medium hair. I had the good luck to find this at a new beauty supply in town that sells to licensed professionals only at a discount. I instantly fell in love with this product. I have very wavy/curly fine to medium hair which gets curlier in the humidity. I was impressed at how smooth this product makes my hair and keeps it that way. In fact, although I shampoo daily, I wake up in the morning looking good enough to run out to the store. It adds a little body; this does not keep my hair perfectly straight - nothing does that, but it does a great job of keeping it frizz free with smooth waves. Lucky for me, I can pick up a few more bottles at a discount, but I would definitely fork over the ridiculous amount of money they are charging for this in Sephora :)

Did absolutely nothing to protect from frizz. Used as directed, blow dried straight and flat ironed. Added more before heading out to walk my dog around the block in the humidity. Super frizzy when I got back. This is going back to Sephora.

Whatever the aerosolized PolyfluoroEster that's in this can is, it doesn't do anything. I was really excited to try this, and used it exactly as directed and my hair seems to be even poofier and frizzy! I even used it when my hair was wet and then after blow drying it, used it again on my dry hair. Considering the small can is $17 and that probably won't last more than a few uses, this really isn't a good value. I'll keep using it until the can is out but I am disappointed so far.

This may be the worst product I'v tried. I was looking for something to smooth out my very frizzy hair and this did not perform well at all. I was recommeded this by MUA.So the directions say to use like 10 sprays for short hair,15 for medium, and so on, and the more you spray the better.So not true.I started spraying a few sprays just to get the product going all over my hair, after that I brushed through and when I got to blow drying my hair actually looked worse then before this is like water on my hair.It dries it up and makes it more frizzy and the smell is extremely overpowering it was very strong cologne like smell and because I can be a bit sensitive to smells(migraines) this did in fact give me a headache. believe it or not.So then after 20 sprays, my bottle was almost empty(I used up the small travel size bottle) and did not see any difference in my hair. It smelled like strong cologne and was very frizzy, nothing else, my hair looked worse.I was very disappointed, just goes to show higher end, not always good.And why do the directions say(the more you use the better) what kind of a product says that? I'v never seen anything like it anywhere, a product should say, the less the better, no? you want to use as little as possible.Also, the very first ingredient is some kind of alcohol, would explain why it dried out my hair so much, this is definitely making the worst products list in my book, I have not tried anything like it.*I would never repurchase this product, made my hair worse/drier/frizzier, scent is too strong/overpowering.

This did a little to combat frizz but just a little. Its performance was way out of alignment with what it is purported to do, MIT engineers and all. I wrote the company to ask why it wasn't working and they suggested I try the creme instead of the spray which I did. No difference. Of course they just couldn't understand why I would get breakthrough frizz because "that isn't possible". Oh yes it is. The bottom is going to fall out of this one quickly. Pass it by!!!
