Number 4™ Super Comb Prep & Protect

As self-confessed blow dryer addicts, we put our hair through a lot. To keep our strands from a meltdown, we use this leave-in conditioning mist. It doesn't just protect hair from heat damage, it also doubles as a color protector and UV shield. The sulfate-free formula has a pretty floral scent thanks to white freesia, amber, and musk, and natural conditioners like black currant and soy yogurt restore hydration.

I was really looking forward to trying this, but only used it once before tossing it aside - i wasn't crazy about the smell.

Did the opposite of what it said it did...
Sampled

I revived this product in sample size and started using it daily after washing my hair. I notice my hair begging to get lighter and hair felt more brittle then before. It says you can use as a heat protectant..I would would not recommend. My hair stylist said I had very bad heat damage after using

Smells terrible
Sampled

It smells absolutely horrible. My daughter refused to let me use it in her hair. I can't even explain how bad I think it smells.

After spraying this in my hair, I couldn't even tell a difference in frizz or conditioning. It may have protected my hair from the heat damage, but I expected more from this type of product.

Not impressed
Sampled

I have used many hair products in the past to protect when I blow dry or comb my hair,and this is not one of them I will be buying. It actually made my hair feel drier and the smell of the product to me was unbearable it did not smell good at all. So was not one of my favorites.

No Good

The smell was pleasant. I seemed to get no results on this product. After blow drying my hair, this product left my hair very flat. It also left a wax texture feel. I would not purchase this product.

Bad product for Davine's colored hair
SampledPurchased

This is my email to Number 4 and they have NEVER responded back to me with their thoughts. Another boooo for the company.

Good Morning,

I purchased your product through Birchbox after I received a sample through my monthly subscription. I decided to order the Number 4™ Super Comb Prep & Protect and the Number 4™ Non-Aerosol Hairspray. Big Mistake!!!!!!!

I currently have Davines color treated hair and use the Davines Minu Shampoo and Conditioner. I have used the Davines line for several years now. I decided to purchase the Number 4 items, but experienced and awful issue. Your products combined with my Davines color treated hair, actually stripped me of my color. I only get my hair colored on a quarterly basis and I just had it colored 3 weeks ago, after using your product it stripped me of my color. I pay $375.00 once a quarter to get my hair colored and your product has caused me to have to return to the salon sooner than expected. I know the stripping was not caused by the Davines product as I have used it often.

You really need to be more specific on your website and on your product, that the product should not be combined with other hair care lines. Your website only states "Number 4 Lumiere d hiver Super Comb Prep & Protect strengthens and repairs last summer’s “Too many weekends in Rio” hair. It’s a detangling aid care unit with UV/Color Polar Shield, power dryer system and full of…” Which leads me to believe that it would not strip the color our of my hair.

No where on your website does it state that consumers can only use this product when combined with other Number 4 products. I have contacted Consumer Affairs and have started to blog about this product on my website in hopes that no one else gets stripped hair and has to come out of pocket with extra funds totally unexpected....and the day before a huge party. Not good!

I am writing to let you know what happened so this does not happen to the next avid hair color consumer. I am in hopes that your company will somehow make this right. I am in the process of trying to return my products back to Birchbox and am in hopes that they will allow me to do so.

Thank you for your time.
