    Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

    Using this product as you use a curling iron really protects hair. My hair is highlighted so it is fragile, iron guard has stopped breakage. Only downside is hair is a little stiff on comb out.

      Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

      I love this product! Most people think they should just spray and and while its still wet use the heat product they choose, but that's the wrong way to use it! Spray it in your hair, brush it through, let it DRY and then use your choice of heat product! Works much better! It keeps my thick hair in tact all day and keeps it straight! I would recommend this product to any one! you just gotta use a little common sense!

                PURCHASED TO REPLACE A REDKEN ITEM THAT WAS DISCONTINUED. PER ADVICE OF A SALON PROFESSIONAL, THIS WAS TO DO THE JOB. WAS DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED, NOT ONLY IN THIS PRODUCT, BUT IN REDKEN ALSO.

                    I was recommended this product by an employee at Ulta. Product smells great, but leaves my hair super crunchy after I run a piece of hair with my flat iron. Very disappointed. Luckily, I only bought the travel size and spent only 4 bucks.

                      I use this very sparingly, and only when I'm going to curl my hair. It says it offers great protection from heat, which...is true but at the same time creates tons of BUILD UP that I cannot stand. I pin curl my hair. So I rely on residual heat from each curl to make my styles last. With this spray, my hair is not even allowed to get warm enough for a curl to hold. Yes, that means it won't burn, but it also will not curl. I will not be using this anymore.

                          I don't blow dry my hair I wash it then let it air dry over night, my question is should I spray this product on my hair while it's wet and let it air dry or should I spray it on my hair once it's dry right before I am about to flat iron it?

                        • Q:

                          I have curly hair and to get my hair the straightness I prefer, I blow dry my hair with an attachable comb to get it somewhat straight then straighten it with a flat iron. Should I spray it before blow drying and later when straightening each section? The reviews say don't spray too much or it will make your hair greasy, but I also don't want to not spray enough and get split ends.

                            We recommend that you use this product after blow drying your hair. This product can be used before and after blow drying, but given your hair type, you should do it after blow drying. You should also stay away from spraying directly on the hair section at close proximity. This can cause the hair to become too wet, which could cause damage when passing a flat iron over wet hair. You should lightly mist over sections of hair, holding the bottle away at a distance, and then flat iron. Hope this helps!
