Nice thermal spray
Sampled

This is a nice thermal spray. It's nothing special, but I do feel like it protects my hair. It smells nice, and helps hold a curl.

Nothing special
Sampled

This hairspray is pretty average. It is non aerosol which gets clogged and sticky more easily that the aerosol kind. It's not any better quality than the average drug store brands.

Works great!
Sampled

I think this hot flex spray is great for styling and protecting it from heat. I liked the subtle scent and I didn't need much for it to work. Def a keeper!

LOVE
SampledPurchased

This hair spray works so well to keep my style, without getting "crunchy" hair. My hair looks and feels so much healthier. Don't know how I ever survived without this!

curly hair for days!
SampledPurchased

If I use this product section by section when blow drying my hair any hair style is possible. I can straighten my hair with JUST my blow dryer or if I curl my hair the curls last for days! A little dry shampoo in between helps but this hot flex spray is something that is always in my beauty kit.

Maybe need to try a few more times?
Sampled

I tried this product both before using my straightening iron, and then another time before blow-drying. I didn't really notice a difference in my hair after I used the product with my flat iron. If anything, it made my hair feel a bit sticky. I just tried it again today before blow-drying, and my hair feels somewhat softer but still a little frizzy. It smells nice though, and the size of this sample was decent, and something I could easily carry in a travel or makeup bag.

Great for curling
Sampled

I got this product a while ago but now that summer is here and I wave my hair, this works great when I fine tune my natural (but not great) waves hair.

Really Enjoy

I have really thick, straight hair, that you can't really do much with, but spraying this actually helps it stay curled!

great styling spray

I sampled this hairspray and liked it. I sprayed it on my hair after showering and before styling. It gave a nice control to the hair and didn't leave my hair "crunchy" as some other hairsprays typically do.
