      Our 16 year old daughter has hair down to her waist. She curls, flat irons... on a regular basis. Her hair is protected and not stressed because she uses this product. I would highly recommend it.

      HORRIBLE!!

      Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

      I had heard really good things about this product so I bought it thinking it was going to be great. Wow was I wrong. It made my hair sticky and dry. Like I could barely straighten my hair it made it so gross. My ends looked so frizzy and it just made my hair look fried. Worst product I've used in a long time. I have no idea why this has any good reviews! Do not buy it unless you like sticky, frizzy hair!

            Might as well just use plain hair spray... it doesn't do anything different and definitely not worth the price. Smells horrible.

            Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

            I tried three brands and this was my favorite. It does seem to look kind of stiff or hard after using the flat iron over it, and all products so far make hair feel sort of coarse -- not soft or supple -- but I think the CHI protected well from heat. I have fine, wavy hair that tends toward frizziness.

                  Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

                  Wow. I had heard good things about this product. I HATED IT. I used it a few times to be sure. It made my hair so dry and hard to manage. It actually hurt to get a brush through my hair when I used this. And I didn't use too much. The directions DO say to apply on damp or dry hair, so I used it before I dried it. I would think that is the point. Well, that's it for me. I gave it a try, and I would not recommend it AT ALL. I see that I am not alone in my review. I'll stick with Redken. I hope I can return it because it was a waste of money.

                          I use this with my curling iron it helps to keep the curl in all day. I spray each section of hair as I curl it. It adds body and curling power to my fine hair.

                          I don't recommend this. It doesn't smell good, doesn't block out frizz if you live in a humid environment (I live and work beachfront). It's sticky and I don't notice out protecting my hair at all. It makes the ends look dry. It also won't hold a straight style, this is the kind of product you have to use to straighten daily, not worth it. Redken has much better products than this.

                            Do this stuff make your hair damp? Is it a oil or cream consistency.

                            I am looking for a light oil spray such as the "organix products" but looking for a different brand as I tried bamboo. I don't have a set one I like yet.

                              CHI 44 Iron Guard is a fine liquid spray that dries quickly. Allow a minute or so for the product to fully dry on hair prior to using your heat styling iron.

                            After you spray it on dry hair before straightening, so you let the product dry on hair, or do you immediately use flat iron on the damp section of hair?

                            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!
