With an exceptionally high level of thermal protection of up to 428 degrees, hair is not only repaired and replenished but also thoroughly protected inside and out. Features strengthening organic bamboo extract and smoothing kendi oil for hair that is stronger, sleeker and noticeably healthier without frizz.

What it is formulated to do:

  • Protects from heat up to 428 degrees
  • Repairs and helps protect against damage caused by high temperature heat styling tools and harsh chemicals
  • Softens hair and locks in moisture to eliminate dryness and brittleness
  • Forms a protective barrier around the hair's outer layer to help prevent breakage, splitting and snapping
  • Helps detangle hair, preventing breakage by making combing easier
  • For all hair types. Safe for hair which is treated with color, keratin smoothing treatment, or perm.
  • Formulated without sulfates, sodium chloride, parabens, gluten, DEA/TEA, phthalates, triclosan, synthetic dye


Key ingredients:

  • Organic bamboo extract: Immediately boosts hair's intrinsic strength, flexibility and sustainability for stronger, healthier, better-performing hair
  • Organic kendi oil: Works to repair and maintain the hair's lipid layer. Protects hair from future damage by infusing it with multiple essential fatty acids (omegas 3,6,9) and anti-oxidant powerhouse tocopherol
  • Kendi Intense Protect Complex: Prevents breakage and provides protection from heat damage up to 428 degrees, which is significantly higher than other products on the market (most protect up to 356 degrees)
Apply to clean towel dried hair. Comb through and style as desired. Can be followed with other styling products prior to styling.

    My hair is processed and I noticed it was breaking. I tried this product and love it! Haven't been using it long enough yet to be able to relay effects but I will definitely continue using it.

      I flatiron my hair daily because I have curly hair and of course that means dry brittle ends. This product is very easy to use and I love that it is an oil that nourishes your hair and helps dry brittle ends look good again!

        I wash my hair maybe twice a week. This product was referred to me by my hairstylist after a long phase of bleach and hair dye. She said it would protect my terrible ends and promote growth quicker than ever before. I had doubts, but now it is the ONLY product I use on my hair, other than my shampoo and conditioner. My hair is entirely rejuvenated and I will never stop using it!

              I like the product. If it supposed to help tame my unruly hair after blow dry, it did not work. It seem to create more frizz. However, I think for the breakage part, it seem to work. My hair didn't break while I was blow drying.

                      I use this product after I shower & before I style my hair, a little bit goes such a long way! This product has changed the way I do my hair, I have blonde hair & so it dries out easily & my hair can get very tangled, I love this product because I can use it & style my hair & I don't have to brush it a million times throughout the day because it stays detangled! This product is the best product I've found for hair like mine, I have naturally wavy hair, it's fine, but I have a lot of it & I can't say it enough that I will never buy another detangler or thermal protectant other than this!

                      The best heat protecter I have ever used. Leave hair soft and shiny. Cuts down the time I spent flat ironing my hair. I especially love that's free of harsh cheminal. I recommend this product.

                        I have African American hair, and currently use the Alterna Moisture Milk (Leave in conditioner), Alterna Multivitamin Heat Protectant Spray, and Argan Oil on my damp hair before I blow dry to straighten. Would this product go on before or after the Argan oil (when I blow dry)?
