Repair frayed ends and frizz with Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo and Beauty Protector Protect & Condition

Beauty Protector

Birchbox Breakdown

We tend to gravitate toward products that have as many functions as Imelda Marcos has pairs of shoes. (Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration.) Beauty Protector’s leave-in mist is about as versatile as they come. It conditions, shields from heat and sun damage, and–of course–detangles, among other things. Plus, it’s 100% vegan and suitable for all hair types.

How it Works

This paraben- and sulfate-free detangler seals the cuticles (the microscopic scales that compose the outermost layer of each strand of hair). It also smooths and moisturizes, thereby minimizing frizz, while safeguarding color and adding shine. Lastly, it provides protection against UV rays and heat. Happily, it accomplishes all this through a weightless, non-greasy formula that leaves behind an airy floral scent.

How to Use

Shampoo, condition, and towel dry hair. Hold the Protect & Detangle bottle four to six inches away from your scalp, and spray a few times. Comb through hair to ensure that the product is evenly diffused, and style as desired.

Water/Aqua/Eau, SD Alcohol 40 (Alcohol Denat), Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Fragrance/Parfum, Cetearyl Alcohol, Amodimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Panthenol, Trideceth 12, Sodium Benzoate, Methylisothiazolinone, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Courmarin, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Limonene.

Love it but...

Smells fantastic and makes my hair so soft! However I can't get it to spray so I have to pour it out in my hair and that is kind of a pain. Possibly a faulty bottle?

Addicted!

I am a hair stylist and have access to soooo many products but I will be ordering THIS product as soon as my sample runs out. I have fine hair and I like to curl it and add volume. This spray is great because it gives you heat protection and makes your hair smell and feel great. I use 4-5 spritzes on damp hair and then use a volumizer at my roots. My hair is silky, not weighed down and smells amazing. I have also spritzed it onto my hands and scrunched into dry ends to refresh the scent on next day hair.

Trust me, it will spray!
Sampled

I see a few people wondering if they have faulty bottles...I had the same problem as well, but it just takes a little persistence. It's pretty thick, so it takes a good minute or two for the product to reach the top.
Although the smell is nice, it's a bit strong, so much so that I think I'd rather have an unscented version. I did notice quite a remarkable difference in my hair, but I've never used anything like this before, so if anything, it has encouraged me to experiment!

Faulty Packaging
Sampled

I really do like the smell of this product however I couldn't get the sample size to spray. The product itself was very thick so I don't think it could have come out as a spray. Maybe I just got a bad batch but its enough to discourage me from trying it again

My favorite beauty product, EVER!
SampledPurchased

I can't speak highly enough about this product. I received two samples of it throughout my birchbox subscriptions and the second it ran out, I had to buy the full sized product! I have extremely long, tangled hair and this made it so easy to brush through after I washed it. I feel like it really does protect my hair from my frequent use of heating products and keeps it healthy. LOVE THIS!

This product smells amazing. Works great detangling and helps my hair hold volume, even after straightening. It's lasted me a while and as soon as the sampler runs out, definitely intend on buying a full size.

Great!!

I use this in my hair every night after I wash it. Untangles hair without weighing it down. Does not leave it greasy in the morning.

Best hair product EVER
SampledPurchased

This is the BEST hair product I've ever used EVER! I have been searching my whole life for something to protect my hair from heat damage, make my hair super soft, and smell heavenly all at the same time and Beauty Protector Spray does all those things. The day after I tried this sample for the first time, I went online and purchased the full size. This will forever be a staple in my bathroom.

Awesome for thick hair!

I have really thick, naturally curly hair and this works wonderfully. I especially love it to tame my hair when I put it up in a bun or ponytail.
