I’ve only used this once, but over all I liked it. It’s a heat protectant that also is supposed to prevent sun damage. It’s a very light product, a big change from the usual serums that I’ve used in the past when straightening my hair. However, it does not offer very much humidity protection. I had bad reversion with this product once the humidity really got to my hair. My area of the country is extremely humid (93% today for example).

I didn’t notice any heat damage. The spray bottle made is easy to apply with even distribution. My main draw to this product is the lack of cones, though it does have a lot of other things in it that I can’t pronounce LOL. I hate having greasy hair so that’s another draw. It left my hair super soft.

Will I buy this again? Probably

    The ingredient list still looks pretty scary. How is the fragrance?

    I forgot to include that Lsaspacey. It has a very flowery scent…but more artificial flowery than real flowery if that makes sense.
