        I was so excited to try this product and was very disappointed in the performance. My hair came out rough and more frizz than before I used it. Not very happy as the product was expensive!

        I did not like this product. It did not help with split ends & left my hair feeling sticky/dirty right after I shampooed.

          I pump a dime size amount in my hand like it says and run it through the ends and midshaft of my hair and my hair is SO SOFT all the time now. It claims that after one use you will be able to tell a difference and I truly can. My hair feels and is so healthy after using this product. Great brand and reasonably priced for the how amazing it is

                The product says it is a lotion, but the reviews say that you spray it on? Is there an option to spray?

                  No, this is a lotion that is distributed by a pump. We also have a Restore Instant Protection Spray that can be added on top as a finisher for UV and heat protection.

                How will this work for 3c natural curls and is it necessary to use the styling cream too or just one product ? Are there any real benefits to using the whole line as opposed to cocktail ing? Thank you��

                  Restore Instant Repair is formulated for all hair types and textures and is the ideal leave-in treatment to help prevent breakage for longer, stronger hair. 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. This product instantly repairs existing split ends while preventing 93% of new split ends, and it strengthens hair, leaving it 50% stronger after just 1 use!

                  A:

                  For best results, we recommend using in conjunction with a heat protectant such as Restore Instant Protection to protect hair from heat styling up to 450 degrees:

                  The order of application would be Restore Instant Repair first, applied to damp hair, followed by Restore Instant Protection. You should see great results!
