Great Product

Comments about Chi Total Protect:

I was looking for a heat protectant to use before blow drying my hair. My hair is easily weighed down, therefore, I put products on my hair prior to drying my hair. I decided to buy the travel size of Total Protect. I like that it is a cream based heat protectant. I washed my hair and applied Total Protect and then blow dried my hair. After blow drying, I flat ironed my hair. Hair came out shiny with lots of body and movement. I liked it so much that I went back and purchased the full size bottle.

                      This product is so amazing! I use it before blow drying my hair and then I'll take my flat iron to it. My hair is so super soft and shiny and no heat damage is done at all! I am so impressed with it that I recommend it to everyone! It works great on not only my thick full hair but also my daughters' hair who has thin hair and the other with medium hair. Great for all types!

                          A:

                          CHI Total Protect is a cream and is great for medium to coarse hair that needs more moisture and thermal protection. CHI Iron Guard is good for finer hair and has some hold to smooth the hair. Use them on wet hair prior to blow drying. CHI 44 Iron Guard can be lightly sprayed on hair prior to using the CHI Ceramic iron, a little goes a long way.

                          A:

                          We recommend applying the Total Protect to clean, towel-dried hair. Following application, dry your hair completely. Then, apply the Straight Guard to dry hair in sections. Style with your CHI tools as usual and finish with the Keratin Silk Infusion, particularly on your ends. Depending on your specific hair type and needs, you may have to play with how much product works best to control your frizz without weighing down your hair.
