How to Use
Rated 4.56 out of 5 stars
I'm usually a Redken fiend and after trying their version of a blow dry primer I was sadly disappointed. I stumbled upon this product through the Ulta website and decided to give it a try. OHMYGOD I'M IN LOVE. I don't think I've ever tried a CHI product before, but honestly I may switch brands now. I used 2 1/2-3 pumps since I have thick, curly hair. I was wary because everytime I blow dry my hair increases 5x in size, and in frizz. I bought a blowdry/brush to do blowouts at home and really didn't think it would work, but this product worked magic. It smells fantastic and made my mini blowout soft with a bit of volume, also it sped up my blow dry time to less than 20mins which is a miracle in itself since I've got quite a bit of hair.
I really prefer a lotion over a spray to protect my hair from heat styling tools such as a curling iron or flat iron. There are not a lot of choices that come in the lotion form. I had been using Redken's silk 02, but it's not really designed for this use. So when I saw that Chi had come out with this product, Total Product, I thought my problems were finally solved. The smell is mild and does not linger. However, the product does nothing to smooth out my frizzy hair, nor does it leave it shiny. In fact, I have a harder styling my hair as if the flat iron is "suddenly" broken. My hair performed much better with Redken. P.S. I used dry hair oil both before and after applying the Total Protect and neither way made a difference.

I have frizzy hair that needs product to control it. My hairdresser recommended this since I had damage from using styling tools. I thought that it worked well and did a nice job styling my hair but the smell was just too much. Even my husband commented on the scent and he never says anything about smells. I think if you can tolerate the smell it's worth a try, but if you're sensitive to smells you'll probably want to pass on this one.

This is by far one of my FAVORITE hair products. I refuse to be without it. It keeps my hair so soft and touchable, and it's great to help tame my locks later in the day if they get a little unruly.

I will be returning this product! It left me Hair so sticky, that I could barely get a brush through it! I used as directed, actually I didn't use as much, I have short hair. It made it extremely hard to use my round brush & blow dryer to style my hair. I would of washed it out & used my old products, but I had not time. Very disappointed in Chi, they normally have great products, but this is a HARD NO for me.
Danniegirl from Ohio
I love this product! It makes detangling easy and my hair is so soft and fluffy after I blow dry it. I'm not sensitive to scents so that doesn't bother me but if you are you might have an issue. The product definitely has a scent but it isn't unpleasant just very present. I use it on my hair and my daughters hair. Less is more with this product and it's best used on damp hair

I used to use a similar high end product I bought at my salon and I think I actually prefer this one! My hair is less frizzy and softer when I use it to blow dry vs. when I don't use it and it seems to be protecting my hair. It has a nice scent, not too strong, and despite having pretty thick hair I don't need to use too much product for it to coat my hair.

After shampoo and conditioner apply to towel dried hair and blow dry.

I lightened my hair and am looking for ways to repair the damage. I've used other Chi products and been happy so was eager to try this. The scent is strong, and cloyingly sweet, like cheap perfume. I hoped the smell would reduce after my hair dried, but it didn't. In fact it is so strong it gave me a headache. This might repair my hair but I won't know because I can't deal with the scent.

I have thick wavy curly hair and use this product on wet hair prior to blow drying. It works great and a good start to my daily routine of styling my hair.

Bought this CHI product and after using just one pump on the palm of my hand, a small spider came out with the product and the spider was ALIVE!! I'm glad I didn't put the product directly on my hair!!!! I am very disappointed, disgusted and traumatized for life!! It was my first time trying CHI and I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANY CHI PRODUCT EVER AGAIN!!!!!

I just purchased this product and have tried it on myself and my daughters hair. I absolutely love it and it smells great!
Elena from Jacksonville NC
I love this product smells great and keeps my hair so hydrated. I use it after I get out of the shower with wet hair. And my hair dries without it being frizzy

This stuff is awesome. I don't normally bleach my hair but I did a few highlights. After 3-4 months it was so bushy and dry in those spots from heat damage and just being dry in general from the bleach I think. Well I used this one time and it made all my hair so silky and smooth. No greasy residue. I have used it several times every time I shampoo and get great results. It smells wonderful too. I would recommend this product.

I use this product every single day..it helps protect your hair from damage when using a blow dryer and hair straightener.

I wanted to try a new product to protect my hair from my curling iron and straightener. It was ok but not impressed.
Picky Buyer from Dallas, TX
It works differently for everyone. My hair tends to be flat on the 2nd day I washed it. This products weighs my hair and I only put quarter of a pump (avoid applying on scalp). It leaves my hair smooth and silky (I have straight jet black hair). I am searching for different brand at Ulta.

great product but overpriced in my opinion. Other products just as good with a much smaller price tag.
Ritzi from Brandon, MS
This stuff is exactly what I was looking for when I was having trouble with heat protectants drying out my hair.
Lindsey1543 from Iowa
I can't say how amazing this stuff is for my fine hair. Does not weigh it down when almost everything else does. Avoids the frizzy, post-blow dry look. A complete 10!
