Repair frayed ends and frizz with Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo and Beauty Protector Protect & Condition

Beauty Protector

Birchbox Breakdown

We tend to gravitate toward products that have as many functions as Imelda Marcos has pairs of shoes. (Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration.) Beauty Protector’s leave-in mist is about as versatile as they come. It conditions, shields from heat and sun damage, and–of course–detangles, among other things. Plus, it’s 100% vegan and suitable for all hair types.

How it Works

This paraben- and sulfate-free detangler seals the cuticles (the microscopic scales that compose the outermost layer of each strand of hair). It also smooths and moisturizes, thereby minimizing frizz, while safeguarding color and adding shine. Lastly, it provides protection against UV rays and heat. Happily, it accomplishes all this through a weightless, non-greasy formula that leaves behind an airy floral scent.

How to Use

Shampoo, condition, and towel dry hair. Hold the Protect & Detangle bottle four to six inches away from your scalp, and spray a few times. Comb through hair to ensure that the product is evenly diffused, and style as desired.

I am a hair stylist and have access to soooo many products but I will be ordering THIS product as soon as my sample runs out. I have fine hair and I like to curl it and add volume. This spray is great because it gives you heat protection and makes your hair smell and feel great. I use 4-5 spritzes on damp hair and then use a volumizer at my roots. My hair is silky, not weighed down and smells amazing. I have also spritzed it onto my hands and scrunched into dry ends to refresh the scent on next day hair.

Love it but...

Smells fantastic and makes my hair so soft! However I can't get it to spray so I have to pour it out in my hair and that is kind of a pain. Possibly a faulty bottle?

Trust me, it will spray!

I see a few people wondering if they have faulty bottles...I had the same problem as well, but it just takes a little persistence. It's pretty thick, so it takes a good minute or two for the product to reach the top.
Although the smell is nice, it's a bit strong, so much so that I think I'd rather have an unscented version. I did notice quite a remarkable difference in my hair, but I've never used anything like this before, so if anything, it has encouraged me to experiment!

Faulty Packaging

I really do like the smell of this product however I couldn't get the sample size to spray. The product itself was very thick so I don't think it could have come out as a spray. Maybe I just got a bad batch but its enough to discourage me from trying it again

Perhaps a rival for my beloved blow out spray
Sampled

I'm dedicated to the Oribe line. That said, I've been looking for a healthier alternative, and, a lower price point.

I think this product may be a great alternative. It left my fine, thinning hair feeling a bit more full. My hair is smooth and soft, but controllable.

The scent was a bit of a turn off for me initially, as it smelled too sweet, like a department store candle. Fortunately, the other products I use (shampoo and conditioner) mellowed out the sweetness, so my hair has a subtle waft of sugar lingering in the strands.

I was lazy after my shower tonight, and didn't feel like using my brush while drying and styling my hair. But even while using my fingers, and doing a messy job at blow drying, my hair didn't tangle or catch. My locks feel buoyant too.

Use this sparingly--I used three full pumps on my hair (away from the scalp!) and combed the product through my hair before drying my below-the-shoulder length hair.

Would like to see a full ingredient list.

I really liked how shiny it made my hair. And I had zero tangles, even hours later. The smell was nice but
overwhelming. That's the only thing that would keep me from buying the full size.
