    Comments about Matrix Style Link Prep Heat Buffer Thermal Styling Spray:

    While I did get good results, unfortunately, I had to return this product. The fragrance isn't that great and the problem is, that it never goes away and I just can't get past it. Too bad they don't have it in unscented.

      I didn't believe the reviews saying that it made their hair sticky and had a very strong smell.. but they were right. This product made my hair very sticky and weighed down and the smell was so strong it was unbearable. Thank goodness I could return it.

            I have really coarse and curly hair. Tried this heat protectant spray and was so disappointed. It left my hair so dry and sticky. Will not buy again and if I lived closer to a store I would return it.

                      I have been looking for years for a good thermal product that leaves my hair feeling soft and I'm still looking for it. This product is ok if your hair is wet but if you have dry hair and want to straighten it, this product is sticky and your hair ends up feeling like straw. I'll keep looking for a better product....

                        Bought this product to replace the Reddkin that I used for years. I love the smell of this. I don't feel like my hair is burning off.
