    Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Protection:

    Love this brand and that all products are parabon, sulfate and silicone free! After I have styled my hair, I spray a small amount of this on my dried hair as a uv protectant from the sun. It really helps save my hair from the damage that the sun causes. It's very lightweight, and doesn't weigh down my very fine textured hair.

          Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Protection:

          I read some grand reviews on this stuff and I'm always looking for products to extend my hair color. But this spray does nothing but dry out and cause my color treated mature hair to frizz worse than normal. Plus, although the scent doesn't linger it make me wanna gag. Back it goes.

                          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.

                              Fresh Cut is meant for all hair types and specifically targeted to sealing ends. Restore Instant .Protection is a weightless spray that protects against heat styling, humidity and UV rays.

                              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.
