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.

No benefit above my conditioner
Sampled

This product makes my hair feel sticky when it dries and just flattens it a bit. I have wavy-to-curly hair and it flattens my waves in a way I don't like. It also confers no additional softness above what my conditioner does. It does, however, smell amazing.

Smells awful
Sampled

I tried the product in my hair, it performed alright but not spectacularly. My least favorite attribute of this product is the terrible smell. I felt like I had an elderly woman following me around the office all day.

I'm not interested in hair treatments or hair products other than shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair.

Product works well, but...
Sampled

Every sample I have received from this brand works well... but the smell is terrible. I can't stand the smell and it lingers all day!

I air dry and I don't color my hair. I tried this anyway and didn't like the result. My hair is naturally coarse. This didn't help with that and didn't feel like it hydrated my hair at all. As for the scent. I caught a faint smell while applying, but it didn't last nor did my family smell anything when I asked.

Not for fine, oily hair
Sampled

I'm sure this product would be great.... for someone else. I have very fine hair that tends to get greasy. I also air dry my hair so this product is not useful for me. Still, I did try it. The smell was great but eventually made my hair greasy and limp.

not ideal for fine hair?
Sampled

I don't see anyone else mentioning this in the comments, but I can't be the only one... I have very fine hair and I found that this product made my hair look very greasy upon blow drying. I'll try it again to make sure it wasn't a fluke but, as of now, I am NOT a fan.
