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

      I have been looking for years for a good thermal product that leaves my hair feeling soft and I'm still looking for it. This product is ok if your hair is wet but if you have dry hair and want to straighten it, this product is sticky and your hair ends up feeling like straw. I'll keep looking for a better product....

        Bought this product to replace the Reddkin that I used for years. I love the smell of this. I don't feel like my hair is burning off.

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

          I was super excited about this, as I got it on sale. Now I know why. This stuff is awful! It leaves my hair heavy and crunchy; it feels more like hairspray than a heat protectant. My hair feels more dry and damaged after I use this than it does without it. It's only saving grace is that it smells pretty darn good. But even then, I would never buy this again.

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

            I use this before I use my straightener. Don't spray to much or to close to your hair because it'll make it feel sticky. Overall I like this because it smells good and makes my hair feel soft

              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.

                I spray this before I curl or straighten my hair. It controls frizz and makes straightening my hair easier.

                    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

                          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.
