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!

Worked Great

I have very thick hair and normally products like this don't do anything for my hair or makes it completely greasy. This did neither! It worked great to detangle and then helped to straighten. The bonus was is smelled awesome!

Not Impressed

I've received this sample twice now, and both times the bottle was damaged and did not work. Without a working sprayer, I would dump some out in my paw and try to work it through my hair. I've tried it on several occasions, but always leaves my hair feeling decidedly dirty and unkempt.

Amazing!!!!

I have really thick, curly hair that i have to blow out. This leaves my hair feeling smooth, shiny and not damaged. It also smells wonderful which is a plus. I would highly reccomend this product. It is one of the best things I have used on my hair.

Light and amazing smell
Purchased

I'm a huge fan of this beauty protector line now after trying this in the beauty protector oil. These products not only smell amazing that they work incredibly well. I have very thick brown wavy hair and have trouble with most argon oil's and conditioners wing down my hair even more this however does not. It gives my hair shine and luster and it doesn't look right out after heat styling it.
