      Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

      Unfortunately this product was not for me. I use a CHI straightening iron and blow dry and was looking for heat protection. This product made my hair feel sticky in spots and also crunchy and dry. I was hoping for a soft and smooth feel. I returned this.

      I was expecting alot from this product because i heard great things from it. Unfortunlaty, it is not all what it is made to be.

      i find that it a bit harsh on my hair. ( kind of like hairspray)

      But i suppose it does what it is suppose to

        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.

          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!

                        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.

                          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!
