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.

First time trying it and did the job. the only thing I don't like is one of the ingredients, I should read the ingredients before I bought it,because it's not recommended for hair and hope I don't need to use it very often or star falling off which is worse
Bailey from White marsh
This is a wonderful heat spray! I don't have any problems with the nozzle. I don't travel with it so I have never experienced any leaking. It keeps my ends in place and works very well. Great price too! This is my second time buying and will be going back for more!
Don't do it
awilso26 from New York
Due to the ingredient dimethiconol, it will cause hair fall out. Beware. There is a lawsuit that is currently going on for this ingredient. Check your ingredients before using any shampoo!
best affordable heat protectant
e! from USA
in love with this! so affordable and smells great! i'm somebody that uses heat on their hair everyday and this has absolutely kept my hair from getting fried! love this stuff!
love the spray, hate the sprayer
abby from ATL
the product itself is perfect. a great heat protector, calms frizz. but the nozzle gets easily clogged, and even though you can lock it, it's still not great to travel with. tends to leak. would prefer a regular sprayer with a cap.
JFraz from SC
I have frizzy hair when it's humid. This product leaves hair silky and shiny with no frizz! Nice light scent and it does not leave hair greasy and weighed down like the more expensive brands I've tried. Finally found a go to product! Love it!
yes yes, and yes
e from no
love this stuff use it all the time, even just to make my hair smell good haha!!!! but it works and does not make the hair feel heavy like some ppl are saying. bottom line, buy this! good price too! :)
Been using this for years
Mallory B from Heath, TX
Love this product! It helps detangle and makes my hair appear shinier after heat tools than it would otherwise. Only problem with this is that it's hard to travel with..I think it's something about the nozzle that causes the lid to unscrew easily. When I arrive at my destination, many times half the bottle is empty due to leaking so I don't take this product with me anywhere anymore.
Love the price!
Linda from Atlanta
Great price and is keeping my heat-styled ends looking good.
Naomi R from California
I've been using this product for over a decade now while straightening and curling my hair. It's been around this long for a reason - it WORKS and is the most reasonably priced item like it on the market.
Good product... but things could be better
Pipes from WA
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.
HuggableHooligan from Pewaukee, WI
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.
You Get What you Pay For
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.
