                  Comments about Chi Total Protect:

                  My hair stylist friend recommended this along with other thermal protection products. I usually don't use CHI (the red bottles dry out my hair), but she promised this one wouldn't. It makes my hair feel soft, and I have the healthiest hair I've had in years, along with other products. I sometimes use this product all by itself on my hair because it does a great job.

                    Comments about Chi Total Protect:

                    I like to try out new products but I always seem to come back to the CHI Total Protect for blow drying. It smells great, isn't greasy and it actually cuts down on dry time! If you apply it to your ends and work up (avoiding the scalp), it will truly give your hair the added protection when you blow dry. You can feel the barrier but it's not a sticky residue.

                        A:

                        CHI Total Protect is a cream and is great for medium to coarse hair that needs more moisture and thermal protection. CHI Iron Guard is good for finer hair and has some hold to smooth the hair. Use them on wet hair prior to blow drying. CHI 44 Iron Guard can be lightly sprayed on hair prior to using the CHI Ceramic iron, a little goes a long way.

                        A:

                        We recommend applying the Total Protect to clean, towel-dried hair. Following application, dry your hair completely. Then, apply the Straight Guard to dry hair in sections. Style with your CHI tools as usual and finish with the Keratin Silk Infusion, particularly on your ends. Depending on your specific hair type and needs, you may have to play with how much product works best to control your frizz without weighing down your hair.

                        Dispense 2-3 pumps of product into the palm of the hand. Rub hands together and apply evenly through towel dried hair moving from ends to scalp. Dry and style hair is desired. This product can be used as frequently as daily.
