Beauty Protector

Birchbox Breakdown

While we have no objection to following in the footsteps of our favorite trendsetters (and we often do), there are days when we relish being ahead of the curve. Which is why we leapt at the chance to try Beauty Protector’s new launch: Protect & Oil. Suitable for all hair types, this uniquely lightweight hair oil protects against UV rays and heat damage like no other elixir we’ve tried. Furthermore, our hair never feels heavy or stiff after using it. Even more gratifying than our early-adopter status? Sharing the results with all of you.

How it Works

This nourishing formula uses star ingredient argan oil to protect, strengthen, and add a pretty gloss to strands—all without heaviness. Armed with UV and heat protection, it stands up to two of our favorite past times: heat styling and spending hours in the sun. The paraben-free formula is also cruelty-free

How to Use

Smooth one to three drops into damp hair, working from the roots to ends. Or, you can apply a small amount to the ends of dry hair to tame frizz and provide light conditioning.

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Argania Spinosa Kernal Oil, Fragrance/Perfume, Red 17/C1 26100, Yellow 11/C1 47000, Limonene, Linalool,

Not for dry hair
Purchased

I was so disappointed in this product. Did not perform to expectations. Left my hair flyaway and did not add moisture, even when I increased amount to size of quarter on damp hair. I do like the exotic scent. My usual hair oil is Oro Fluido (from Birchbox) but, silly me, I wanted to try something different. I'll use it up and go back to my fave.

I love this stuff

This product is awesome, doesn't weigh my hair down but makes it soft & supple. I use a curling iron every day-like too much. I feel like it really helps it look soft and less broken. Oh & it smells fantastic, like cotton candy.

Moisturizing

This worked really well on my split ends. It didn't weigh down my fine hair, and helped tame frizz. Also, it's a decent sized-bottle, so the price is pretty good too.

A little bit does not go a long way...

I have long hair and I need a lot of the oil to really show some extra shine. Smells amazing!

Loved this

I received a sample of this. I can definitely see a difference! Just a tip- be careful not to use too much- I have fine hair, and too much made my hair feel oily.

Makes my hair nice and smooth

I love this product. It smells great and makes my hair smooth. I have wavy hair that gets frizzy when I straighten it, but not with this! Love this product!

Best Finishing Oil I've Tried

Beauty Protector has quickly become my favorite line of products that I have learned about from Birchbox. I cannot say enough good things about this oil. I love, love, love the smell. It is such a wonderful, light and unique scent. First I spray on Beauty Protector Detangler and then I blow out my every thick hair with a round ceramic brush and high heat. Then I put a small amount of this oil on my palms and fingers and pull it through starting about an inch away from the roots to smooth out and add definition. It works like a charm. I used it on vacation in a high-humidity climate to tame the frizz and it also did the job there. I love this product and will be purchasing the full size when my sample runs out. This whole line is worth trying out and investing in.

works great, smells great

I use hair oil regularly in my dreadlocks so when I like a hair oil, trust me, it has had lots of competition. First, this oil smells heavenly, with a light, sweet scent, it induces happiness.

Next, it is a great weight, it penetrates my locks and oils my scalp without being greasy or heavy. I used the sample to the last drop. It is much more expensive then hair oils available at any beauty shop but I liked this product so much, I am willing to spend extra for it.
