    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray:

    I bought this product on a whim, I can't believe how well it works for my hair. I spritz it on after I wash my hair and brush it through it detangles instantly, and I have noticed I do.not have the breakage or hair falling out as much as before! I use a cocktail of products but this is the first one on. it does what it says I flatiron my extremely thick and curly hair and the difference is amazing. I will not go without this.

      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray:

      I had recently been to my stylist and she remarked on my hair feeling dry. Usually all I get from her are compliments, but i have been using my flat iron and blow dryer a lot more lately. I began to notice the dryness of my ends too after she pointed it out to me. I bought this stuff and from the first time I used it the difference was significant. My hair is wavy to curly and very thick. It usually frizzes when i blow dry it, but when I used this stuff, omg, it was like night and day. Hair was smooth, ends looked happy, and I couldn't stop running my fingers through it. Great stuff!!

      Love the way my hair feels before I flat iron it! My life less thin fine hair has done a 360 with a week! A little pricy but amazing product!

          The product works fine, but it gets clogged after 2-3 squirts, so you have to clean off the dispenser while using. It doesn't smell the greatest.

            Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray:

            I.LOVE.THIS.STUFF. It has done a fabulous job protecting my hair, which is thin and very easily damaged. I use it every morning before using the blow dryer and straightener. The straightener just glides right over may hair - no more snags. In the past, a few days after a trim, my hair would start looking and feeling rough, dry and like velcro. Gone are those days! My hair looks and feels great all the way up to my next hair appointment. And it smells great too! I spray it 6-8 times into my hand, then rub hands together and wipe it down the bottom 4-6 inches of my hair.

                Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray:

                I am by no means a product junkie. It is rare that I use the entire bottle of any product; my bathroom cabinet is full of half filled products i've gotten bored with. However, I am half way through my second bottle of this product and wondering if I should stock up. It is wonderful!

                The biggest pro for me is that it is not greasy and does not weigh down my hair. My hair flows naturally and does not tangle. Very light weight but does the job well. I have long thick wavy hair that I straighten daily. The biggest difference I have noticed is how soft and smooth my hair is all day long.

                After years of searching i've discovered that Redkin All Soft Shampoo & Conditioner followed by this product provides the best results for my hair. I straighten daily and wash every other day. It is on the pricey side for Ulta; however, I have determined that paying a little more for a good product is better than battling with my hair everyday.

                The only con is that you have find the right amount to apply and it can get greasy if too much applied. I tend to think that if the product is good then applying more of the product will be even better. This is not the case here; a little goes a long way. I use about 5-6 pumps on my hand and comb through hair. If I use too much I notice that my hair is greasy on day two. I would recommend this product!

                I consider myself a beauty JUNKIE - so much so that I rarely buy the same product twice (hair or makeup) because I am just so excited to try something new. I have been using this product religiously, every single day, for 2 years now. THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING. I have NEVER found a product that works better than this - it smells great, is eco friendly, prevents breakage, adds shine and doesn't weigh fine (like mine!) hair down. I won't use anything else on my hair for heat protection besides this. Since I started using this product with my fine hair, that I like to heat style often, I have noticed a HUGE difference in how much breakage my hair has. Night and day from before and after I started using this. Do your hair a favor and purchase this, price be darned.

                Excellent product! I use it every day after towel drying my hair. I spray it in the palm of my hand and run it through my hair, particularly the ends. Blow dry and straighten. Great scent and works great on protecting my hair.

                      Although they are similar products, Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray serves primarily as a styling primer and offers greater thermal protection for heat styling (up to 428 degrees), while Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist serves as both a hair treatment and styling primer with a formula that infuses hair with nutrients & anti-oxidants. Both are weightless and ideal for all hair types including fine hair, and both help to reduce frizz.
