Most Helpful Positive Review super curls!
A good friend of mine who is also a hair stylist recommended this product to me because I would take the time to curl my hair and within 2 hours the curls are literally gone. She gave me some advice on how to use it and voila! first use and my curls stuck from morning to night, even the next day when I woke up in the morning. The price felt a bit high, but I was told you can find this online at other retailers for cheaper. Also, when I wash my hair the next day, I let the conditioner sit in a little longer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for Blow Outs, altho Ulta Salon recommended
I want to use hot rollers to set my naturally CURLY locks after blowing it out. I was looking for something to protect my hair from both blow dryer heat, AND hot roller heat. And THIS STICKY, ICKY PRODUCT was recommended by one of the women in the Salon--that's what they use. If this is what they use, NEVER USE THE SALON AT ULTA. It will RUIN your hair.
I assumed the hair people in their Salon were knowledgeable. After my BAD experience, I went online to review the product. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? The description online says NOTHING about blow-outs, and shows it as strickly a setting lotion. THAT'S NOT WHAT I ASKED FOR AT ALL, and the directions on the bottle don't specify that at all, either.
The workers there don't know a thing about hair product (or most other items I've stopped in to inquire about)!!! I am so frustrated, I'm going to another business who knows hair. ULTA is nothing more than an overpriced 'cutsy' destination for people who like to just buy over-priced 'stuff'--good, bad or indifferent!! In my experience, the employees at ULTA seem to know less about items they sell than the woman who works the HBA dept at the big box store whose name starts with W.
Reviewed by 208 customers Great for holding curl in stubbornly straight hair!
Stacy from Grand Rapids, MI
I needed a product that would provide thermal protection and hold for my daughter's hair. She has beautiful virgin hair that is really resistant to curl. Usually by the time I'm done curling the top, the bottom has fallen out no matter what I try! This product was recommended by a stylist at my local Ulta store. And it was perfect! She needed to have curly hair for a theater performance and this was amazing. I sprayed every section of hair I curled and then did not break the curl until I was completely done and it was fully cooled. The curl was beautiful and held until she brushed it out at the end of the night and even then she had beautiful wave. You need to be careful not to spray too close to the hair and let it dry a little before using your hot tool or it will get sticky and create some white flaking. I made this mistake a couple of times, but it's fixable. All in all, I would definitely recommend this product and would buy it again.
Works but tangles hair
DeePee from Los Angeles, CA
I've tried many heat protectants, I use heat on my hair 4-5 times a week. This one is pretty good, but sometimes it tangles the hair too much. Some days on fresh washed hair it leaves a residue like strong hold hairspray, and the next day hair is really tangled. The mist is a decent amount, not a stream. The smell is okay, not floral not fresh just like hairspray. I wouldn't keep it if I paid full price, but I got it in sale so I'll keep but will not repurchase.
Amber V from Albuquerque
Not a fan at all, feels like it is leaving residue in my hair weighing it down..
Smell is Off Putting
Kdl22 from USA
This smells like men's cologne, and the scent is very strong. I could smell it on my hair all day. It worked okay but I can't take the smell.
Good product for holding styles.
KD from AR
Don't think I will use everyday. Good product for styles needing extra hold. On hair feels more like styling product than heat protectant. Very little goes a long way. Too much and hair feels sticky. Think this bottle will last a long time. Heat protect I always go back to kenra platinum blow dry spray
This is just what my hair needed , it helps hold my set !
KitKat from Raleigh,NC
I use this when styling my hair . It helps my hair to retain the curl that otherwise fall flat .
Love this product !
Denise from Louisville
This product smells great and makes curls last and last.
Tangles and missing hair
Drea the product queen from denver
this is exactly what you will get with this product. Tangles and chuncks of hair falling out from trying to brush through the sticky tangled mess it gives. I have tried this product with my hair completely brushed out and wet and brushed out and dry and still get the same results. it creates mad tangles and causes hair to break as you try to comb through the huge sticky tangles. If I had thin hair I would of lost half of the hair on my head. that was bad. ill never put this stuff on again and I suggest nobody else does either.
Great for styling!
Momof2 from Kimball,TN
This product worked great on my daughter's hair as I was rolling it! Curls staid in place and looked beautiful!
The bottle was pink when I started using it!
Farmwife from Albert Lea, MN
If I want tossed hair look, I spray on slightly wet hair and blow dry.
Much too sticky and "gritty" for my fine hair
Disneygirl from TX
Made my fine hair feel dirty. Had to return it.
Love this product!!
sschenk from AR
I love this stuff! Without it my hair will not hold a curl or style at all. It holds all day. Easy to brush through it. I have been using it for years.
Absolutely I would buy this Redkins Hot Sets!
Jean from Round Rock, Texas
My hair seems to have lost its body. I spray a section of my hair with Hot Sets and use the curling iron on it and it holds all day! Great product
Anna P from New York
The worst thermal mist ever! Very sticky and it takes so long for it to dry. The mist itself gets stuck very easy.
Liz from CO Springs
Love this product! I spray it all over damp hair before I blow dry/round brush my hair. It leaves it soft, silky, touchable, and holds in place with zero stiffness all day. I get so many compliments! I also use this as a styling product on my daughters hair, it keeps her fine baby hair smooth and in place even without any heat or stiffness. Will continue to buy when I run out!
I wanted to like it...
Juice from Colorado Springs, CO
So first of all, this product should not be a spray, it should be an aerosol 100%. It's a great concept, but it left a weird residue on my hair and made it feel funny. It's also kind of hard to shampoo out and caused a lot of hair loss as a result. I ended up returning it. Please think about reformulating this product.
I would buy again!
Pat from Waretown, NJ
Use before blow drying
Super Protecting but Tangles
Iz from MI
This product definitely protects against heat, and I can count on it to make styles that last all day. The only thing I don't like is that I could have completely brushed out my hair and then I'll spray this on it wet or dry and it causes really bad tangles. It feels like I have to break my hair detangling just to use this so I'm a bit choosy about which styles I actually use it for.
LouLou from Moorhead, MN
I have used this product for years. I have had two different stylists over the last 10 years and both used this product on my hair. My hair is fine and only hold a curl if I use this product. The trick is to use it sparingly. I can't tell you many times I have purchased this great product.
I use this every time I wash my hair!
Nan from WI
I use it every time I wash my hair. Spray it on each section before I curl it. Helps hold the curl on my straight hair.
Not for me
Toni from Orlando
I bought this because I had read that heat setting spray was a way to keep my hair color longer. The color came out worse than not using anything at all. I also didn't realize it was going to act as a hair spray. It made it harder to use my straightener.
turned my black hair red
Ronnie from iowa
So for a little back story i have thick healthy hair that i color black about once a month. Well i finally ran out of my old product i was using and thought id give this a try. My hair was up so i just used it on the baby hairs around my face and straightened them with a flat iron set at 400 degrees. Well somehow those pieces turned red. Ive been coloring my hair black for years now and ive never had something like this happen before. There was no other change to my hairs routine besides this. if you have colored hair i DO NOT recommend this.
Too sticky for my hair
Me from Ok
Not good for a brush curling iron
I Was Pleasantly Surprised at How Well This Worked
Kokers from Wisconsin
I spray this on my towel-dried damp hair, just out of the shower, the blow dry upside down, and finish off with a straightener to add waves. My hair is quite fine and very straight, so it doesn't take to holding styles for long at all. But this product worked GREAT. I have previously been using Redken Iron Shape 11, and while I liked that product, it still would sometimes leave a noticeable coating on my hair that I could feel. So I thought I'd give this "mist" a try and i love it. At first I was afraid it wouldn't hold the waves as well as the Shape 11, but wow, it did the job! And it doesn't feel sticky at all. Plus, the smell is better than Shape 11. Super happy with this product. It's my new fave.
Barb from Michigan
Worst Redken product I have used. It gives absolutely no detangle to the hair once you apply it. It doesn't worth a penny.
