            I have tried a dozen or so heat protecting sprays and creams over the years, but this is the best one and I am now committed. It's quick to use (spray) and smells great. I could feel a change in my hair texture immediately - even my hairdresser noticed (less breakage). Plus, it comes in a travel size -perfect for on the go. The price could be lower, but I bought a full size bottle 3 months ago and use it every day and still have some left.

            I absolutely love this product. I have hair extensions and you need to have something that calms the hair down so it doesn't get all ratty and out of control. This is amazing for natural hair and for extension hair. I highly recommend it

              Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Repair:

              I was hesitant to purchase this due to the price, but I'm glad I did! I flat iron my fine hair every weekday and I needed something to help protect it. This sprays on dry, really helps prevent breakage and REALLY helps with flyaways! It does not weigh hair down nor does it make your hair greasy or limp. It is heavily scented, but the scent doesn't really stay on your hair. Works great on wet hair before blow-drying or on dry hair before flat ironing.

              I will purchase this for as long as they keep making it, and I'm more likely to try other products by the same brand.

              NOTE: This is a protecting spray for your hair, not a sticky hairspray for hold.

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.
