    Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard:

    I had high hopes for this heat protection spray, as I've used other Chi products and loved them. The first few times I used this, I was super happy because it smelled *amazing* and made my hair shiny. But, over the next few uses, I noticed my hair was going from silky (right out of bed - tangle free!) to dry, rough, and tangly immediately after straightening. I was confused because A) I was using a heat protector and B) it was instantaneous "damage" following the use of heat tools, and went away after washing.

    The product sprays on like a protecting wax, very sticky and heavy; You need to brush through it a few times after spraying before you can even think about taking a hot tool to it. I will say my hair is undamaged while using it, but it makes my hair tacky, while causing dryness and matting tangles.

          I have found that this product best protects hair against the heat in curling or straightening irons. I have medium long hair and want to protect the ends.

                        This stuff works wonders, the smell reminds me of a male cologne but I think it smells really good. The scent is strong at first but it goes away shortly after it dries on your hair so you won't smell it long if you don't like the scent. It works really well and lasts a long time.

                          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!
