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.

Very impressed!
Sampled

I really like that this works without being heat activated, as I only air dry my hair. It detangles, hydrates, has UV protection (a serious bonus since I live in so cal!), offers legit frizz control, leaves my hair feeling soft, and with a nice scent. This is really good stuff! Use sparingly though---too much can leave strands greasy. Bit pricy, but lasts and has so many benefits. I even use it on dry hair (just a few sprays only) to refresh between washes, so this one product does a lot, and very effectively! Will buy this in full size, and the coordinating shampoo/conditioner line as well. Prep & Protect rocks! Thanks for this one, Birchbox!

Smells terrible
Sampled

The product worked alright, nothing special from other similar products I have tried, but the smell is terrible, it has a chemical smell to it and it covers any shampoo smell in your hair. I just could not handle the chemical smell.

OK

The smell is weird but it did go away. It left my hair feeling soft and helped control the frizz. It was not the best detangler that I have used.

Pretty Good
Sampled

I'm a big fan of hair products and I don't usually get tangles, but lately I have been. This product does the trick and smells quite nice, it also leaves my hair a little shiny but not greasy.

okay

I really like that it's made of natural ingredients, but I just can't handle the smell. Smells awful. It did detangle really well though.

Ok product

It is an ok product. Does what you expect it to. Has a pleasant scent. However there is not anything that distinguishes this product from similar supplies. And there are many similar products at lower prices.

My hair is never this smooth!
Sampled

My hair is curly, dry, and heat damaged most often. I straighten it and blow dry it at least every other day. I used this product immediately after getting out of the shower, dried it, and straightened it. My hair has never been this smooth and this frizz free!

Smells Funny

I like the way this product works in my hair but I am not a fan of the smell. Other than the smell, it's a great, lightweight conditioner.

Prep and Protect it does!
Sampled

The thing I liked most about the Super Comb Prep & Protect was that it didn't seem to weigh my hair down. I have super fine hair and I find that most products just make my hair flat and heavy. The scent isn't my favorite but it isn't unpleasant either. I love the fact that it has UV protection in it. This is something I tend to look for in a hair product.
