                    I was so excited to try this product and was very disappointed in the performance. My hair came out rough and more frizz than before I used it. Not very happy as the product was expensive!

                        No, this is a lotion that is distributed by a pump. We also have a Restore Instant Protection Spray that can be added on top as a finisher for UV and heat protection.

                      How will this work for 3c natural curls and is it necessary to use the styling cream too or just one product ? Are there any real benefits to using the whole line as opposed to cocktail ing? Thank you��

                        Restore Instant Repair is formulated for all hair types and textures and is the ideal leave-in treatment to help prevent breakage for longer, stronger hair. Although Restore products are designed to be used as a regimen to repair damaged, weakened hair, you can certainly integrate Restore products individually into your existing regimen. This product instantly repairs existing split ends while preventing 93% of new split ends, and it strengthens hair, leaving it 50% stronger after just 1 use!
