      I like this product. I straighten my hair hair with this and it does seem to get wavy on the 3rd day. Although, this product is very lightweight and I feel like it protects my hair. The smell is very strong so make sure to spray this in a big space.

              I bought this product along w/the conditioner. The conditioner is GREAT..but the Humidity spray WAS A WASTE OF $$. Try Rusk Humidity Spray less money and works better!

                        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.

                    • Q:

                      I love that this product protects from the sun but it contains alcohol denat., is this going to dry my hair? If so what's a recommend product that I should add to help my hair lock in moisture?

                        A:

                        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.

                        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.
