Number 4™ Super Comb Prep & Protect

As self-confessed blow dryer addicts, we put our hair through a lot of stress. To keep our strands from a styling-induced meltdown, we'’ve been using this extra hydrating 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 sinks in quickly and has a pretty floral scent thanks to white freesia, amber, and musk. Natural conditioners——including black currant, soy yogurt, algae, and yerba mate——combine to restore hydration to dry hair, while the unique UV/Color Polar Shield protects dyed or sun-exposed locks. Soy and vegetable proteins repair damage caused by heat and chemical styling. And don’'t forget about the defrizzing factor——anti-static technology tames flyaways, making hair more manageable and easy to style.

I cannot put products in my hair on account of hormonal build up i get on my hair from medications. I will be passing this product on to someone who could get more use out of it than myself.

Doesn't apply

I already have something like this. So it didn't really apply to me.

I do not like the smell
Sampled

I like to use hair sprays that leave my hair smelling great as well as sleek. Maybe this product isn't for me because my hair is especially tangled up so it didn't de-tangle so smoothly. I couldn't tell if it was my brush or the product that de-tangled my hair but I couldn't bear the scent.

Number 4 Comb Prep & Protect

I'm just not a fan of Number 4. I could deal with the scent even though it's not what I would prefer. I cannot deal with the fact that it makes my hair heavy and greasy. Just not a match for me.

Meh- didn't like it

I was hopeful but this product was tacky, sticky, and honestly stinky. Not my kind of smell. Made me want to wash it right out. Not even a good give away for my teenage girls. :( hopefully others were able to enjoy!

Very disappointed... I was expecting this to make my hair feel very soft but instead it made my hair feel very dried out... I've been trying these number 4 number 4 hair products that Birchbox continues sending to me but I have to say I'm not very impressed with them at all!!!

Sticky mess

Unfortunately, Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect did not work for my hair type. I have super fine and breakage-prone hair. The first time I styled my hair using the product it made my hair sticky. I figured I had used too much, so the next time I applied the product more sparingly. My hair was still sticky even though I had applied the spray carefully. I guess my hair is just too fine for this product.

Eh, it's okay

I read other reviews that liked the smell of this product. I found it very off putting as did my 9 year old daughter! I tried it on her hair. She have very fine, thin blonde hair that tangles easily. I didn't see that it improved the look or tangles. I probably did not give the sample a fair chance since the smell did not appeal to us. I rarely use heat styling on my hair or on hers, so that aspect of the sample did not get tested. The sample size was ample.
