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.

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!

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

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

One of my favorite things!
Sampled

I LOVE this product! My hair is always difficult to comb after a shower, so a detangler is a must for me. A lot of products are so heavy, leaving my hair oily and limp. I received this as a sample in one of my boxes, and after the first try, I was in love. It did the job of combing out my mass amounts of tangles without weighing my hair down. And my hair felt SO soft! I highly recommend!

Best detangler
SampledPurchased

I use this product for my hair and on my daughters hair. This product is amazing!!! I can spray a regular detangler in my daughters hair, and it still hurts and has tangles. This spray has made things so much easier...and you only need like 1/4 of the amount of the drugstore brands.

Not only does it smell great, but it works great! Perfect for a day at the beach. I feel like once hair is wet again it reactivates and protects from any damage from the water and sun.

I love the way this product makes my hair smell! Not only does it work as a heat protectant, but it doubles as a detangler which I love. Makes my hair silky smooth after blow drying. A little goes a long way

Great Multitasker

I love the scent, I love how it instantly untangles my long fine hair and I love how silky my hair feels afterwards. I also love that I don't have to spray a detangler and a heat protector. It saves time and my hair is less greasy from too many products! The only thing I don't like is my hair does get a little greasy looking after 24 hours and I don't want to wash my hair everyday. Still looking for that perfect product that doesn't do that!

Helps a lot but..

I love adding it into my hair for a shine and smooth touch. However, is this supposed to spray? I can't used it as one so I just brush it lightly on my hair.
