I've tried thermal protection sprays from Cantu and Aussie and they both make my hair feel hair and brittle. I can say even as African American woman, my hair type is short, but very thick, and I still love this product. It smells really great and I am glad this was my first CHI product.
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 wanted to try this product due to the reviews. WRONG! It left my hair sticky and stiff! Glad I only purchased the travel size.

I've heard many great things about this heat protectant and my hair stylist has even used it on me before. My hair always felt so soft after having heat applied to it! The only thing that was weird about this is it had a cologne smell to it. It's so strong that my coworker asked if I was wearing cologne lol. Maybe it was just the one I received because I don't remember it smelling like that when my stylist used it on me.

I tried this product after a recommendation from a store clerk. He said they use it in their own salon at Ulta. i have to say I am not impressed. This stuff is terrible. It stinks for one...smells like you came out of a smoky bar or like insect spray...I can't decide which one. When you spray it on, it globs up and makes your hair feel crunchy and sticky. Plus, it does nothing as far as protecting your hair from heat. After using a flat iron, I have frizzy ends and fly aways all over. I would not recommend this product.

I use it when I use my hot iron to curl the ends of my hair. Does a great job protecting the ends of my hair and I also have my daughter using it on her hair and her 2 daughters hair as well.

great protection from heat styling tools

Use this with either regular or keratin Chi, helps strengthen, hold, & protect my baby fine hair, cruelty-free, use sparingly, as it can build up on fine hair between washings.

This product works well, but it's not BETTER than other products I've tried, including my current favorite, Sebastian Trilliant, although Trilliant is slightly more expensive. I would stick with my drugstore preference- Loreal heat protectant over this spray but continue using the Chi Total Protect to give my hair the feel I prefer.
Cheri from TX
This spray is great! It leaves your hair feeling silky and smooth, not sticky and yucky. It keeps your hair from getting damaged and frizzy.

I wanted to love this product but it seriously leaves my hair so sticky, impossible to brush, it feels like I'm spraying hairspray into dry hair & yes I have tried with wet hair and it is just as bad. Don't wast your money!!
Becca from Modesto
Great, i guess it's sticky when i put it on but after I use my curling wand it goes away along with the scent ( if you don't like it ) but you know everyone has different hair types so use hair care that works for you

I use this when i get out of the shower on my wet hair then i dry my hair and style it

First it smells way too much like men cologne but not in a good way it's way too overpowering for the hair. Even when sprayed from far away it still makes the hair feel stiff and hard to brush through it feels more like hairspray and how hairspray leaves your hair feeling.

This made my hair sticky and dry when I used it. I have medium thick 2A hair, and I always let my hair air dry at night, so I need something that can be applied to dry hair the morning after. After using this product on dry hair followed by my flat iron, my hair felt brittle, sticky, and tangled. It really felt like it was drying out my hair--so much that I was worried I'd gotten heat damage from using. Fortunately my hair went back to normal after a wash. I'm not sure why some people are getting the same results as me, while others are loving the product. Would not buy again.

Gigi from Chicago,Illinois
I cannot live without my straightener! I'm not a fan of my curly hair and I have tried many heat protectants but nothing compares to this! Every heat protectant Iv had always left some sort of residue on my hands or comb as I would continue to straighten, or it had a hold to it similar to hairspray and then it just wouldn't even straighten right. Up until I discovered this! Love it. I stock up on these when ULTA has their buy 2 get one 1 free for hair products!!
Michelle from Ridley pa
I love this product at Ulta beauty store!! I get all my hair products there!
Lauren from Eau Claire
This made my hair extremely sticky despite using a small amount. I also noticed more breakage when I was using this product. This product caused my hair to tangle so much from the sticky build up it causes I couldn't even run my fingers through my hair. Worst hair product I have purchase I will be returning it.
Andy from Kentucky
I have started using this every time I straighten my hair.
Coltsgalll from Albuquerque

AngieAK from Ohio
Tried twice following the directions. First time I thought maybe I had used to much, second time I made sure I sprayed lightly. Both times I ended up with super sticky and tangled hair. I couldn't even run my fingers through my hair until I sprayed it with an oil finishing spray. Very glad I did not buy the big bottle because this stuff is going in the trash.
RockL7 from Highland, Michigan
I use it as I'm straightening my hair or using any heated item in my hair, occasionally while I'm drying but I try not to use the heat (hairdryer) a lot on my hair...
Griselle from Tampa Florida
I use it daily with my flat iron.
Beth H. from Middletown, Ohio
I use it before I use my heated drying brush! Works great!
