Beauty Protector Protect & Oil

While we have no objection to following in the footsteps of our favorite trendsetters (and we often do), there are days when we relish being ahead of the curve. Which is why we leapt at the chance to try Beauty Protector’s new launch: Protect & Oil. Suitable for all hair types, this uniquely lightweight hair oil protects against UV rays and heat damage like no other elixir we’ve tried, and, using star ingredient argan oil, it also protects, strengthens, and adds a pretty gloss to strands—.The paraben-free formula is also cruelty-free.

Caused Hair Breakage
Sampled

Although the smell and the shine-factor were a big plus, the more I used this product, the more hair breakage I notice. I am very technical when it comes to my hair and skin, and have naturally soft, curly hair, with a mix of thick and thin strands. Almost daily I do the "strand-test" to see if my hair needs more moisture or more protein. And as I said, once I used this on a continual basis, my hair was observably zapped of it's elasticity and would simply *snap* as soon as I would pull on the strand.
Just a friendly warning to those who have curly hair and take quite a bit of care for it's health.

Disappointing Scent
Sampled

I am not sold on this hair oil. I have tried in wet hair, and it does not seem to have much of an effect. In dry hair, it leaves it oily. The only use I have found so far is in dry hair before using a straightening iron where it seems to provide some protection and shine while the heat eliminates the oilyness.

HOWEVER I hate the scent. It reminds me of the brown sugar/vanilla Bath and Body Works sets we'd buy for our girlfriends in junior high school - synthetic, one-note, cheap and unsophisticated. Thus, I would not buy this product.

Fantastic Product
Sampled

I loved this product! My hair was soft, shiny and beautiful. I have naturally curly hair so I have to be very careful with oils. They can make my hair look greasy and weighed down if I'm not careful. This product did not do that to my hair.

Love this hair oil!
SampledPurchased

This oil is lightweight and smells amazing! I've been looking for something that adds nourishment but does not weigh down my hair, nor makes it greasy looking. Highly recommend!

Great!

Hesitant at first at putting oil in my hair given that I've been working on getting my hair to look less greasy and oily but this is a great product that helped control frizzy look and doesn't weigh my hair down making it look flat and greasy half way thru the day like some other products have. Less is more with this product, and a little does go a long way!

Tames every tangle!
Sampled

I'm in love with this stuff! I used "It's a 10" until I got this sample. It's light enough for my fine hair, smooths tangles, knots, and fly-aways, and leaves an amazing scent that lingers all day. Five stars!

Simply Amazing.
SampledPurchased

This is the first product I have bought in full size. I used it for about 2 weeks while straightening my hair, normally when i get my hair cut they say its very damaged and i need to take off a couple of inches. This time they said my hair was barely damaged and only needed to cut about 1/4 of an inch!This product is great for someone who straightens or blowdries their hair on a daily or weekly basis! I cannot recommend this product enough!

Great hair product

I have been using oil at the ends of my hair for a long time now and I feel like this product has filled the list of wants from a leave in oil. With just a small amount of this product it untangled my hair, moisturized my dry ends and protected my hair during styling. I didn't find my hair to be overly oily after use or limp. I have also used it as an all day protectant at the pool and after I rinsed it out my hair felt amazing. I would recommend this product.

Blissful fragrance
Purchased

This oil was quite expensive for me. I got it on recommendation of one of Birchbox staff picks. But you don't need to use much at a time and the smell is to die for! I have dried ends from perm and this is slick.

Ok, I love it

I've used my entire sample now, and decided I love it! My hair is shiny, looks healthy, and I love the smell! Time to buy the full size!
