I've been using Chi Iron Guard heat protectant for years on damp hair before my blow out, with Infra Texture as a finishing spray. I saw this at Ulta the other and decided to give it a try. For reference, my hair is thick, but very very fine and straight. It is cut in a chin length bob. I use a large barrel curling iron, the way you use a flat iron. By that, I mean I section hair, start at the scalp and pull the iron up the hair section bending slightly as I go. This gives fullness and a gentle curve, rather than stick straight. I sprayed each section lightly with this Iron Guard Style and Stay spray and then curled as usual. It is fantastic! Gave me huge, fluffy volume with no stickiness and the volume lasted all day! Sometimes I finish with a little Chi Infra Texture just to keep stubborn pieces in place, but in terms of the sheer volume...I haven't used anything that comes close! Again...I can not speak for thick or curly hair but for fine hair that needs volume and is styled with a heated styling tool, I whole heartedly suggest giving this one a try. I continue using the other heat protectant all over my damp hair before blow drying though, because hair as fine as mine needs protection for drying AND styling.
Most Helpful Critical Review Definitely not a fan
I was initially concerned with the "firm hold" part of the product description, but, I tried it anyways. The spray was sticky just like a typical hair spray is. If you used heat on it, it got really stiff but luckily brushed out easily. It didn't help my hair stay straight or keep the style well at all. It also didn't seem to keep or add any moisture to my hair. I ended up returning it the next day.

I like the scent a lot, it smells like such a nice, sweet floral mixed with "salon smell". I like to occasionally curl/wave my hair, so After applying a heat protectant, I'll spray this on a section of hair, curl it or press it in a wave maker, and it makes the hair so shiny and healthy looking. It holds the curl ALL DAY 100% like it looked the same at 10pm that it did at 10am. Perfection.

Definitely won't be purchasing again! I used less than half the bottle and it won't spray anymore. Second time this has happened. Plus it doesn't seem to hold a curl. Will be going back to Kenra products.

Lasting hold without stiffness
Hairspray expert from South Carolina
I tried this product since I had been unsuccessful to find a hairspray to hold my hairstyle without stiffness. I absolutely love this product!!
Keeps my hair in its place!
Janine from Roseville, Ca
I've tried many products from gels to sprays fo help keep my style in place and my fly away hairs from "flying" and this hair spray is the first to do just that. Now I can style my hair back in a ponytail, lightly spray my top and sides and wala! My lil hairs stay in place and they pretty much stay all day!

I wouldn't purchase again
LA from St. Augustine, FL
I bought this after reading many great reviews. I am going to be returning it. It left my hair feeling very sticky and made my hair look greasy by the next morning. I have sprayed it far away but nothing has helped.
My go-to product
Pink Granade from VA
I was looking for a product that gave me lift and had holding power. This is the best I have found. I spray a section of hair before curling with a curling iron. In places where I want added lift, I pop in a large self gripping roller until the hair cools. This spray has been the only one so far that has maintained a hold and works with all my styling methods.
Love the product just can't seem to get it in the store they
Tabby from Floral City Florida
I get so aggravated I go into the store and they never have the BOGO they only have one never three in four different stores I travel to they all tell me to buy something I don't want and then return it so I'm constantly taking something back and forth and waiting for my product to come in very disgusted
Best hairspray ever!
Cathy from Michigan
I have very fine, straight hair and this spray goes on in light layers and holds my style all day. I love it! Other hairspray are to heavy and weigh my hair down or just don't hold fine hair well.

Received this product after reading several reviews on how great it was. Used it twice now and it's horrible. My hair is like straw after. I put it on before using my flat iron to create curls & it dries my hair out so bad. I can't even run my fingers through it after. Will be returning next time I'm in town.
Corin from LA,CA

Love this product Smells FAB
Amanda from PA
I have fairly think, straight hair and use my straightener to curl my hair. It's hard to find a heat protectant that doesn't add a lot of weight and make my hair look greasy, and then because of being heavy and greasy it won't take to being curled. Then I would have to use hair spray after curling each section and it made it so stiff, I hated it. But this product goes on really lightly (I used it on dry hair even though it says dry or damp) and not only kept my hair from getting blistered and stayed soft, but it am so held *really* well! I was doing my hair to go out with my boyfriend, and he loves to play with my hair which usually takes all style and volume out of it. But even after him playing with curls, they weren't as tight as when I originally did them but I still had a lot of my style and body! I will definitely buy this again and keep using it.
Jeanzy from Springfield, IL
The title of the product makes it sound like it has a very heavy stiff hold which I disagree with. I have tried other brand names of similar quality and this has I would describe as more a medium hold. I like the light scent of it and I like the nozzle that you can turn shut so the nozzle does not get clogged up. This is my favorite hair spray of all the name brand quality hair sprays.
Provides fairly good hold yet feels light, not sticky

cheekswallace from Holdrege, NE
I've tried many heat protectants and keep coming back to this one. It sprays on like a hairspray and actually holds as I flat Iron my hair. It doesn't weigh my straight, fine hair down and is not greasy. LOVE IT, highly recommend. I buy 3 at a time when it's on sale.
Love this product!
Barb from Springfield IL
I use it every day and love how it is light on my hair, yet holds its style. And it smells great!
