    This product made my hair feel heavy and greasy. It gave my hair a weird feeling, like it wasn't clean even if I just washed it.

    Comments about Matrix Style Link Prep Heat Buffer Thermal Styling Spray:

    It worked for the one spritz I got out of it which wasn't enough to determine the product but the bottle itself is cheap and started squirting pellets and beading. Very upset about this product. May have been great. Not worth taking back.

          Comments about Matrix Style Link Prep Heat Buffer Thermal Styling Spray:

          I tried the product, and the only reason why I did not give it five stars is because you have to brush your hair out once its dry or it gives it a hard, crunchy feeling. It did however, leave my hair straight and frizz free (i have extremely frizzy, curly hair) and i love french braiding my bangs to go behind my ear, and it helped improve the hold with the bobby pins

                    Have thyroid problems and am trying to protect what hair I have left...Bought this heat protector spray. It "works" but it also makes your hair really tangly!! Kind of the opposite of what I wanted...

                        A:

                        Matrix considers formulas for our products proprietary.

                        The pH of any given product is not a measure of the product's efficacy. Our products are developed to be compatible with the natural biology of the hair and skin. It is our unique formula and technology that provides the desired result.
