Most Helpful Positive Review EXCELLENT FOR FINE POROUS HAIR
I am older (64) but still want to have long hair. Have been trying to grow it for a few years. However, my ends kept getting very dry and breaking. So, I thought I would try this after reading positive reviews. It is the best product I tried to control the "Poof" I get after washing and blow drying. I use Living Proof primer, then a volupt spray (current another brand) then this spray. Blow dry. Then spray again with Restore Instant Protection before using a hot iron. This product really does what it says it will do. With this routine, my hair is good for 3, yes 3, days. I never could do that before. I am slowing switching my product line, product by product, to Living Proof. Highly, highly recommend you buy this if you have fine hair.
Most Helpful Critical Review Pure alcohol
The smell that many wrote in their reviews is alcohol. If you look at the ingredient list, it's first. I love the Living Proof line but I don't understand this product at all. How does alcohol protect my hair against heat? This totally dried out my hair and I returned it after one use. Terrible.

My hair feels amazing! Best protective spray I've used. It doesn't make your hair sticky or hard like other products I've used. Hair is silky, nice shine (not greasy), and I personally like the smell. I will be repurchasing!

I mean it works great, but the smell is so bad and it goes right in my mouth, making me want to gag.
Sher from San Tan Valley AZ
Have used this product for a couple of years now. Have tried others but keep coming back to this one. I have colored fine and curly hair and this leaves my hair silky without dragging it down.
Lisar627 from Illinois
I use this prior to flat ironing my delicate fine hair. It protects and smoothes the frizzies. You can use it even if you don't flat iron. I've used it to smooth my hair after blow drying. Makes it look more finished. I won't be without this product.
I like it a lot!

Doesn't feel tacky or crunchy
Brandy333 from Ohio
This is the only heat protectant spray I have ever used that is light weight, doesn't leave my hair greasy or stiff, it dries fast. Smell isn't the greatest though, but besides that it does a fantastic job of protecting my hair.
LOVE LOVE LOVE

I love this protect - protects from heat and leaves your hair smelling and feeling great!
Fried my hair!
JS from New Jersey
I like the brand but this particular spray fried my hair and now my hair is extremely damaged! Stay away from this!
If you want greasy hair
Sue from Michigan
This product makes your hair greasy and weighed down. I tried to spray lightly before I either curl or straighten my hair and it just makes it look greasy. I tried it on fresh hair and next day hair and no difference. In fact, I have to wash my hair the next day after using this.
Karol from Okc
I love living proof but this sucks. It's smells weird and I don't think it does anything to protect my hair sabe your money. Wished I'd returned it when I could
Will use this as long as they make it!
PGIPam from Michigan
Protects my hair before blow drying. Seems to help hold my style after using a curling iron. Lightweight and easy to use. Does not build up on hair or make it stiff.
Lauren from Arkansas
This stuff smells SO BAD. Like, I have to hold my breathe while using it. Biggest mistake purchasing this, and I wish I would have returned it while I could.
Ruined my hair
Stephanie1973 from Carmel, Indiana
I have been using this for a while on day 2 hair thinking I was protecting it, but that's not the case. I just went to my hairdresser and let her know i had been using this. I showed her the ingredient list and she told me since alcohol is the first ingredient it has fried my hair. After cutting off the damaged parts, I will be tossing this product and finding one that will actually protect.
Can't live without this!!
mandy from florida
Best heat protection spray I've ever used, this is my third can of this but it does last a while. I have used alot of other sprays and creams and this just does something to my hair that other products don't. I use it on dry hair when straightening my hair and it leaves my hair smooth and frizz free, I love it!! I will always repurchase this!!
Also helps with TANGLES!
SonomaBunny from Sonoma, CA
I have heat damaged hair and most heat protect sprays tend to be sticky or weigh hair down. This product is light, sprays super easy in a fine mist, and has a teensy bit of sleekness that aids in detangling. I wish it was 100% cruelty-free and Vegan though. That is a super big bummer for me.
okhannahko from kirkland, wa
This product goes on evenly and is lightweight for the amount of protection. I'm a huge fan of all things living proof and this doesn't disappoint. It's nicely scented, which is a plus. Other products that are heat protecting can cake on funny and change once heat is applied but this product doesn't. Highly recommended staple.
I LOVE this product! BUT.......
Lori from Portland
I love the product!!!!! however once again, ULTA is out of the promo that goes with it.
Mollie from Illinois
I love the living proof dry shampoo so I had high hopes for this product. It performs very sub par. It doesn't tame frizz or have much hold. I would straighten my hair and it starts to get a slight wave after only a few hours. It smells okay and the nozzle gives an even amount of product but that's wear the good qualities end. I'll probably use it up but I definitely won't repurchase or recommend to anyone.
Aubrey from Georgia
Absolutely LOVE this hair product! I have very dry hair, yet my roots can get super oily after a couple days of not washing. Because of this I'm always looking for a good heat protectant spray and dry shampoo.
This is the BEST heat protectant spray I've tried so far (and there have been A LOT). I love the fine mist it gives you so it distributes evenly, and I know some people don't like the smell but I love it.
I've also put it on when my hair is dry before leaving the house to protect from the sun.
Pricey, but totally worth it for me.
Lindsay from Jacksonville beach fl
I absolutely love this product. It is so light and tames frizz.
the smell is unbearable
Bre from Illinois
I literally have to hold my breath while using this. Smells like the strongest perfume ever. Would not recommend, I seriously choke on the smell every time lol yikes
FINALLY!!! No crunchy hair!!!!
Yoga Foodie from Nashville, TN
OH goodness I've been waiting to find this product! I'm a big fan of Living Proof's products and they have yet to disappoint. I mean they're crazy expensive, they better work lol! Every other heat protecting product I've tried has left my hair SO CRUNCHY! I had high hopes for Chi and Lange considering they make heat styling tools. Nope. Both left my hair feeling gross. Not only does this one my Living Proof protect my hair, but there is ZERO signs of build-up or crunchiness. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Lizard from Milwaukee wi
Works wonderful with flat iron I'm addicted
I was so impressed with this product !
Leslie from Oklahoma
I have a lot of breakage from bleach and this product smooths and replenishes as I used my flat iron and protected against heat, I highly recommend this product for dry damaged hair !
Finally a heat protecting spray that doesn't dry out hair
cindy62 from Sinking Spring, PA
Because I have blown out my curly, wavy hair for years now, I had a hard time finding a product that seemed to protect against heat stylers (straight iron, blow-dryer) that actually worked and left my hair soft and manageable. Living Proof Restore Instant Protection is on my "fav list" for a long time!
