Most Helpful Positive Review Very nice product
After using flat irons for years and having so much white hair, I decided to look for a good heat protector. I used Kiehl's in the past but it felt a tad greasy. I tried a couple of hair protectors and like this one better. I was a bit skeptical because of some negative reviews. But this product is super light weight. I spray it on all over my hair after I wash and squeeze out excess water. I then blow dry my hair. It feels amazing. Soft, silky, and the style holds for 2-3 days. If I don't blow dry, or use this product, my hair gets frizzy the next day. With this one the frizz is controlled, shine and softness retained, and it feels so good. I am not sure if it works well as a heat protector, I don't know how to tell. But when I flat iron my hair with this product, the hair feels a tad "brittle", like there is a papery layer between the iron and my hair. When I don't use product, the flat iron feels smoother on my hair. It doesn't bother me, the iron still works, it just makes me feel like there is some layer that develops. The good thing about sprays is that you can cover a larger portion; the bad thing is waste and I don't know if all layers are covered. I find a serum or liquid easier to use so I can spread it myself, but I spray this and just run my fingers around to ensure all the layers get the product. I fear I am going to run out of it soon! I highly recommend this product. Blow drying has become much easier and faster, and best of all, it stays that way for 2-3 days!

Hated this product. Didn't even realize how awful it was until i bought a better straightening protecter. I began to notice my hair smelledike fermaldihide when used. Made my hair sticky and wet when dry. No shine, awful smell, dead ends. Does nothing. Do not even waste money on this, not worth it unless you want your hair to smell like a cat disection anatomy lab.

I've used this product since I was probably about 13 (I'm 20 now). It's a reliable product. Gets the job done but I definitely feel like it could be better. Over time the bottle doesn't spray as well either. If you just want something to get the job done for a reasonable price this is it.

Very strong smell that did not appeal to me at all.
Good as a hair refresher, too!
Debbie from IN
I use this on my curly shoulder length hair on days when it just seems to be out of control, not just when I want to straighten it. I spray it on fairly generously, then run my fingers through my hair and scrunch. It magically seems to perk up my hair and, somehow, makes it behave. The curls look much less crazy and more uniform. This is a great product, and it smells good, too!
Drea from Seattle
The smell is strong and my hair feels heavy after applying it.
Stays in the hair nice!
K from MA
I like this product. I straighten my hair almost every day and use this and it really helps with the heat! It's also really nice that it can stay in your hair and not cause your hair to be greasy! I have tried lots of products and it will make my hair greasy, but this one has seemed pretty good!
Buyer from Florida
Drugstore brand does the job. Hair soft holds style prevents ends from over heat. Best product if on a budget.

Anjali from NJ
This heat protectant does the job, but it does not completely protect your hair. I understand that many buy this product for its affordability, but you can get a much more protective styler protectant for $10 more. The bottle will last longer and your hair will be less damaged. The product is very sticky and sometimes smells heavily of chemicals. However, it did leave my hair quite smooth after straightening it. If you need a product for affordability, buy this product, but if you have a couple of extra bucks to spend, spend it on another protectant.
Ciarra from Florida
I have used this product for over a year now because I used to straighten my hair everyday. The bottle lasts me about 2-3 months, and works very well for the price. It smells great and I definitely feel like my hair is protected before using heat
cdms from bushwood, md
I have used this in the past and recently tried again because it is cheap! which is a draw to it. It does work pretty well but for my hair it seems to make more oily now. I'm not sure if it's just because my hair has changed as I got older or if they changed it. if you are looking for something cheap and your hair is normally more dry then oily then this is for you!
Price and Performance 5 Star
Manders from GR
I have been using a more expensive and top brand name heat protection for a long time -mainly because products like that lasts a long time for me .
I have very fine, thin hair that is easily damaged - left over effects of chemo for breast cancer years ago.
My "old" product was running low , I recently had a hair cut to allow more hear styling whether it`s curling, or straightening , and the previous other product I had made my hair very stiff, very sticky, and that worried me as could it be counter productive to avoiding damage ?
After reading review after review on this type of product, I landed on Tresemme ...and hey - it was on sale / BOGO. I cannot see paying more on products not for me , but it`s not like I`ll waste even a few bucks for a product that will not work, either.
This product is easily to apply , It felt smooth on my hair and was not sticky.
I applied before blow drying, and was very happy of the softness of my hair, the shine, the smoothness.
My hair, and the ends felt and looked protected, less "crackly and crunchy " as I pulled a curling iron or straightener through it .
Style also held through the next day ! It was not greasy, weighed down.
It did help with extra volume - but I did add some hair like root volume , or powder to oomph it up, and had no problem mixing the products.
I have been checking out my hair for breakage / damage after using this product, and have saw little to none.
I am very happy with the combined price and performance. I am looking to try more Tresemme products , like mousse .
Best heat protectant
Zumbamac from Woodstock, GA
I used this a couple years ago and liked it. Then I started trying other products, mostly prestige ones. This works better than any others I tried.
J from PA
I love this stuff, makes my hair a lot less frizzy after putting any type of heat on it. It smells good, but not overwhelming!!
I've been using this product since it got into the market.
Deborah from Worcester, MA
Every single day I blow dry my hair after a shower. I have long thick hair that will frizz if there is humidity in the environment. Not only I don't get breakage with this product, I can count on my hair not frizzing if it is humid outside.
Don't let the inexpensive price fool you
Hannah from Seattle, WA
This heat protection spray works better than most of the super expensive ones I've tried. Do yourself a favor and at least try it (I mean why not, it doesn't cost a lot) and see for yourself.
I always come back to this heat protector
SP from San Francisco
I have medium to long, straight, fine, naturally blonde hair that is on the oily side at the roots and on the dry side at the ends. I have used more expensive heat protectors, but I always come back to tresemme. I don't even smell the scent anymore— just like you can't smell your own home, I don't smell any scent with Tres. I like to spray several squirts over my ends, brush through, then quickly brow dry already dry hair to smooth out flyaways. Sometimes I don't use any mousse or gel or hairspray— just tres. I definitely notice that it seems like I'm frying my hair when I don't use this product. No other heat protector makes my hair feel soft and smooth and hydrated without being heavy. It's not much of a detangler, but it is better than nothing.
The bottle does suck. When I travel, I pour Tres into a travel spray bottle. This can't be stored horizontally, and the last 10% of product can't be sucked up via the nozzle: you have to unscrew it and carefully pour the product on your hand and then run your hands through your hair. But, for the price, you can't expect it to be delivered perfectly. I've adapted pretty easily.

I use this daily. I am very satisfied with the whole product.
X from San Bernardino
I ordered this 3 times and Each time the cap unscrewed on the bottle and I received a soggy package with the product empty. The first time this happened I returned the item, the second I gave it a second chance But the same thing happened and this time they refunded me and sent me a new bottle for free. It took 2 weeks for me receive this, but when I finally did, the product also had the cap unscrewed causing it to leak out all over the box. Yes I did get refunded but I tried to give this a chance 3 times and I never got to use it. Super annoying bottle design
This is an oldie but goodie for my hair
Tisha from Westchester County, NY
This product gets the job done. I have been using this for years, and the formula still feels and acts the same. I have curly, coily, kinky hair and this works on my texture, leaving my hair full of bounce and protected from the heat of my blow dryer.
Fool Me Once Shame on You, Fool Me Twice Shame on Me
Elizabeth from Boston, MA
The first time I bought this product was a couple of years ago but I didn't even get a chance to use it since it spilled everywhere was it was put in a drawer like all my other hair care products. I figured I'd give it another chance since I figured it was my fault.
I've had this product for less than a week and its already spilled more than 75% of the product. It was diguisting and made everything else sticky. I made sure the cap was always screwed on and I even put the lock on at all times.
Clearly this product is faulty and will spill no matter what. Never again! I liked the price that was about it.
Can not be without this
TA3 from EL PASO TEXAS
I have been using this everyday for about 5 years. I went without it for about a month a couple of years ago and saw the difference in my hair. It was so damaged. I will never do that again!!
Adrianna from Florida
Left my hair SO soft after curling it😍 the smell reminds me of something I've had put on my hair while at a profession salon! The nozzle is absolutely perfect and has a really wide spray! I am in love with this product!
This is what I use after every shampoo
Lucylee from Tulare,Ca
Love this. No stickiness!
It doesn't work
KK from Houston, Texas
I bought this product a lonnnggg time ago and have been using it daily. However... it's not helping. My hair is very sensitive and becomes oily at the thought of oil and dies within two seconds. Because of my sensitive hair, I have to blow dry it everyday. I got this protectant hoping it could reduce the split and dead ends. However, I feel like it may have made it worse. And yes, the smell is weird, but it wears on you and you don't notice.
Lori from CA
Strong chemical smell that lingers in my thick Asian hair, would not buy again
My hair is damaged...
Jennifer S from Dallas, TX
This smells really good and that's the only good thing I can say about it. As far as protecting my fine hair from flat iron usage (medium heat), it didn't work. Some of my hairs have broken off close to the roots. I'm very disappointed. I won't ever purchase this again.
