Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

I originally bought this product to protect my hair from heat damage, but it was a bit sticky. I have awkward wavy hair, the kind that I can't wear out naturally. But after spraying this on my hair and a crunching it a tad, my hair looks fantastic! I use this product for a completely different reason, but it is amazing and I won't use anything else!

    I've been using this product for about 3 months now and I really like the smell of it. I color my hair and it gives it the added protection I need without weighing it down and feeling greasy.

        Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

        I wanted to love this, but I can't stand using this. It's like using hairspray. I can't even smooth my hair to straighten it after spraying this. It's just too sticky, and makes my hair stiff. My hair doesn't feel soft, smooth, or natural again until I wash it.

          Anytime I run out of iron guard I consider getting something else just to try. But then I bring it home and it keeps loving my hair. I am in my 50s, but my hair is silky and shiney and gets noticed.

          Amanda, Stylist at Ulta in Taylor, Michigan, recommended this product to me as she was cutting and styling my hair. I took her advice and purchased it and I am so happy that I did. This product is not sticky nor greasy and it smells very good. I apply to wet hair if I am blow drying or I will apply it to dry hair if I am about to straighten or wand curl my hair. I would recommend this product to everyone!

            Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

            Chi 44 Iron Guard is a product that have been using for about 2 years now. I blow dry and straighten my hair almost everyday, My hair would get really dry and my ends would look awful. I needed a product to help keep my hair from drying up and looking like its dry. I heard good reviews about Chi 44 Iron Guard, so i went a bought it. This spray was not heavy on my hair, and it actually helps protect my hair from the heat tools. I have tried other products and they did not work as well as Chi 44 Iron Guard. The bottle usually last me 3 months, I am very satisfied with this product and will continue to buy it.

                I spray it in my hair before I dry my hair. My hair is healthier since I've been using it. I think it really protects it against heat. I use hot rollers, but I use a curling iron to make curls right around my face. I spray it on the whisps of hair right before I use a curling iron on it. It not only protects the hair, it helps to hold the curls.

                      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.

                      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!

                        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!
