    Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Protection:

    When your hair dresser says you have great hair that is the best compliment! I am picky about what I put in my hair BC it can go great to oily in a second! This product never weighs my hair down, it doesn't make it slick or greasy! It is so easy to use! Love it! A little pricey, all the Living Proof products are, but they are great products!

      My hair tends to be dry, since it is curly, so when I flat iron it I use it to protect form the damage that can result of not protected. It works really well.

        Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Protection:

        I am older (64) but still want to have long hair. Have been trying to grow it for a few years. However, my ends kept getting very dry and breaking. So, I thought I would try this after reading positive reviews. It is the best product I tried to control the "Poof" I get after washing and blow drying. I use Living Proof primer, then a volupt spray (current another brand) then this spray. Blow dry. Then spray again with Restore Instant Protection before using a hot iron. This product really does what it says it will do. With this routine, my hair is good for 3, yes 3, days. I never could do that before. I am slowing switching my product line, product by product, to Living Proof. Highly, highly recommend you buy this if you have fine hair.

              Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Protection:

              I was hesitant about purchasing this because of all the chemicals in the ingredient list. But I thought to give it a try just to compare the efficacy of chemical versus all natural. If the effect of these chemicals are better, then I may have to consider switching. I LOVE LOOKING BEAUTIFUL FOR MY HUSBAND... WELL, it didn't even work as well as all natural heat-protectant & this made my hair rougher as well as stuck together @_@

              So i returned this one.

                    I have been using Living Proof products only for over 7 yrs now and this is a must have. I wanted straight most of my life and tried so many things and none worked like this one. It can be used on wet or dry hair. I finally have the straight hair I always wanted

                      This spray smells nice and leaves hair shiny. But so do a lot of other thermal protection sprays. I don't use any other Living Proof products so perhaps you have to use the entire line to see spectacular results. Then again, it could all be hype. I bought this spray to use with the curling iron and I'm disappointed that it doesn't have any holding power. Additionally, you're supposed to spray it on after styling to provide UV protection. However, it contains water, which deflates any hairstyle. I've only used it a couple of times and although I do think it protected my hair, I"m just not that impressed. It's expensive and I just don't think it's all that great for the price.

                      This product is sooo light.. the can is like a hairspray, except you can't feel it in your hair after you spray. The scent stays with you, but it isn't loud or heavy. My hair looks great, even when I blow dry everyday!
