          Like it it's lightweight doesn't harden your hair if you get what I mean. It's downfall is that it's pretty expensive and it seems like it's not gonna last me since I've got long hair.

              I love how much healthier my hair is using a blow dryer and curling/straightening iron. I live in LV, and the sun shines everyday. A UV Protectant is a must.

                        It has that clean Living Proof product smell and it seems to protect from blow drying and flat ironing just fine. There's no feeling of excessive hair product on my freshly washed hair.

                                Most aerosol products contain alcohol to act as the carrier for other formula ingredients. It should not be drying and is not bad for your hair.

                                The Alcohol denat. in Restore Instant Protection is just part of the propellant system to get the formula out of the can, so this ingredient won't actually reach your hair. It has no drying effects on the hair and you will not need any additional products to lock in moisture.

                                The Restore Instant Repair and the Restore Instant Protection can absolutely be used together! The order in which you layer these products is truly your own personal preference. However, we would suggest applying the Restore Instant Repair to your damp hair first and then applying the Instant Protection prior to heat styling.

                                A:

                                Restore Instant Protection is a weightless heat protectant spray and does not function as a detangler or a conditioner, but it can be used in conjunction with other treatment/styling products such as No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner or Curl Leave-In Conditioner.
