Birchbox Breakdown

We've never met a hot hair tool we didn't like. They solve a lot of our hair woes and give us luscious locks, but they also tend to bring on heat damage when used repeatedly. If you're in committed relationship with your curling wand, blow dryer, or flat iron, applying this ultralight spray before styling protects hair from heat up to 450 degrees, leaving it smooth, polished, and shiny. It also doubles as a finishing spray, blocking UV rays and reigning in frizz. We love how weightless the formula feels—so much so, it can be used on damp or dry hair. Winner of Allure’s coveted Best of Beauty award, this mist is free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates.

How to Use

This spray can be used alone, or on top of your other styling products. Generously mist damp hair before styling. For 24-hour UV protection, finish by spraying onto dry hair.

Protects and shines.

I use this spray for its thermal protection when I use a curling iron. It makes my hair shiny (not greasy) and guards against the high heat of the iron. I use it generously all over then let it dry before using the iron. It dries quickly and smells OK (not great but OK). It doesn't make my hair unnaturally shiny or oily looking, it just looks healthy. The can is rather small and I use it about twice a week. It lasts me about a month. It also provides UV protection, which is an important feature for me because I live in Florida where the sun is relentless and this spray helps keep my hair color bright and fresh. The UV protection only lasts 24 hours so you'll have to respray on the second day. All in all, I like this product a lot. It's better than any comparable product I've used, high end or drugstore. I will definitely repurchase.

Amazing product!

As soon as I tried this product I knew I hit the hair product jackpot!! First off, this spray smells amazing...very light and feminine..not overpowering. I applied it to dry hair before I used my flat iron. It was extremely lightweight and did not feel sticky in any way. It helps add shine, smoothes, and protects from heat, humidity and UV Rays.

Love it!

This brand is amazing. The scent for everything is subtle and nice. Most importantly - it works! All of the "Restore" products are wonderful and this is no exception.

Not sure...

I usually LOVE all Living Proof products, but for some reason when I sprayed this it smelled AWFUL, I'm not sure if it's bad or what...but because all their hair products work amazing on me I'll use it anyway

Protection spray

I really like this spray, I have tried a few other brands and they leave your hair feeling greasy after a day of use, this stuff does not I really like it a lot. I plan on using this instead of the other brand I was using before. Plus the other brand I was using before cost me a little more so I'm saving money too.
