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

Love this stuff
Purchased

I have very fine hair that tangles easily. My mom got this in her box and sent it to me since she does not use conditioners. I loved it so much I bought the full size. I used this one morning after a shower with my usual shampoo and conditioner. It has a good smell thats not too strong and amazingly it kept my hair almost tangle free all day (prob about 90%) which is amazing progress for my hair. This will definitely stay in my normal hair care.

My sis and I both got samples in our Birchboxes and instantly fell in love.
This spray smells amazing and really makes our hair soft and shiny. Nothing else compares!
If the pump clogs, just shake the bottle.
