      Comments about Chi 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray:

      This stuff is THE WORST!!! Not only did it make my hair feel like straw, I had sprayed it on while it was wet and as I blow dried my hair, I could barely run a comb through it!!! Ended up with tangled mess. Once I managed to get a brush through my hair, it really made my hair look like straw. Going to try to return this for a refund. Y'all should pay me for punk-ing me like that with this yucky stuff.

          I gave this product a try as it is a leading brand name, I used it as directed and it fried my bangs. It also leaves my hair feeling very straw like. I will go back to using my products by Surface.

                              We'd recommend applying it to all sections at once, since you'll want to wait for it to fully dry on your hair prior to using your heat tool. Hope this helps! :-)

                              44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray's primary function is as a heat protectant to prevent thermal damage from heat styling tools. It does not provide any hold or control. We would suggest using a hairspray to set your finished style, such as CHI Enviro 54 Hairspray Firm Hold.

If adding shine is your primary hair goal, we suggest using the CHI Shine Infusion Hair Shine Spray. Enjoy!

                              44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray is sulfate-free as well as sodium chloride-free, but we always recommend to review the ingredients list with the stylist who performed your keratin treatment to be sure that it is ideal for you!
