    I really love this heat protectant! Not only does it protect when styling but it also helps prevent UV damage. It smells fantastic btw. It also helps smooth my hair slightly and is a great gel texture that doesn't weigh my hair down.

        Comments about Chi Total Protect:

        I bought this because I love the Chi styling oil or serum, whatever it's called. I love this. It smells so good and keeps my hair smelling good all ay long. I have naturally curly/wavy hair and this stuff does great. I can just run my fingers through my hair with some of this on it, blow dry a little and leave. Just make sure you don't put too much of this on the top of your head/hair. If I do that, I find it looks a bit oily until it dries. To be fair, I do have very oily skin and hair so this may not be the case for all. I will be purchasing this again!

            This is a great product that doesn't weigh my hair down and makes it incredibly soft after drying. My daughter uses it on her thick long hair and it helps with tangles and keeping her hair looking healthy.

            I've used a CHI serum in the past that I loved. This particular formula didn't work well for me. It provides heat protection, but didn't give me the smooth, soft look I was hoping for.

              Love this product. I was using the Kerastase Reflection Chroma Thermique Treat, but it is expensive. I tried to find an alternative product and found that this was great similar product. I apply on damp hair before blow drying. It makes my hair soft and smooth after blow drying. I prefer the cream/gel over a spray heat protectant.

                Honestly, I had been using CHI 44 Iron Guard Spray. Needless to say, even though I love CHI products that spray isn't my favorite! I wanted a replacement that would still offer great protection from my heat tools. I decided to try this and it is a great substitute!!! It leaves my hair silky smooth.

                    Bought this after reading many reviews. I have fine hair and needed a product that wasn't greasy and didn't weigh down my hair. This works perfectly while helping control flyaways and protecting my hair from heat. Have only used a few days so can't comment on long term effects and if it keeps my hair from drying out over time.

                          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.
