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.

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.

Birchbox, stop sending me these Number products!

I hate this brand!! Although this particular product didn't smell like it, most of these Number products (especially the shampoos) remind me of the smell of show dog expensive shampoo. Since this product didn't reek of dog shampoo, i tried it and was not impressed. I noticed no difference in my hair. I'm not wasting my money.

I didn't like how this smelled, it was very strong and pungent. I also didn't think it worked very well as a leave-in conditioner and protector.

This product has a very caustic medicinal smell that stayed smelly all day long. I had to wash my hair that night to get the smell out. I could not use very much of it so I didn't see any benefits in my hair.

I found that this product did nothing for my hair. I was quite disappointed by this line's samples. My hair still felt dry after using it.

The smell put me off and I didn't notice any difference when using this. Seemed watered down and packaging looks extremely cheap. Any drugstore spray would be better than this.
