Most Helpful Positive Review Great styling tool
Use this before straightening and curling. Helps hair take and hold style. Slightly tacky so spray, brush through, then style. Used Redken Spray Starch previously, but when could no longer find at Ulta the clerk suggested this as a replacement that would be better for the health of hair. I would agree with that. This product turned me onto Kenra and I've used several other products which I've been very happy with including the Platinum blow dry spray and especially the platinum silkening mist. Going to try the hairspray next.
Most Helpful Critical Review So Disappointed
I love Kenra products. I love the blow dry spray, silkening mist and shanpoos/conditioner. I bought the thermal styling spray to protect my hair from heat when I am not using the blow dry spray and it is AWFUL. It felt like I was spraying liquid tar in my hair. My hair felt sticky and greasy. I would not recommend this and will be returning it.

I like that Kenra brand is truly Cruelty Free, some companies advertise this, I.e.: Tarte, IT, Clinique, but the sister company, they are sold in China, etc. still are conducting and requiring animal testing, thus rendering them not entirely Cruelty Free.
Kimberly from New Jersey
Honestly this made my hair sticky, dry and made it tangle super easy. I mean, I could barley comb through it. I do have thin hair but this made my clean hair feel dirty and gritty. I guess if you're using this for an up-do, it may do the trick to keep it textured and stay but if you plan to wear your hair down, skip this entirely.
Made hair tangly and sticky
reviewer456 from Seattle, WA
I was looking for a good heat protectant that would also help to keep my hair styling in place. I did nothing but make it more difficult when styling my hair. The product made my hair so tangly even after multiple brushes, which made it hard for my straightener to work without it getting caught. It also made my hair just feel heavy. Will be returning.
I don't quite understand the praise
Teenage Grandma from Portland, OR
I know some products work better than others and it depends on your hair type but this was disappointing.
I sprayed it on sections of my dry hair, would comb it though before styling and it looked and felt like straw. I will not purchase this product again.
kept hold all day!
Chelsea from California
I love this product. It kept my curls in all day when they usually fall after 2 hours
Perfect for my dry, processed, and frizzy hair!
Meghan from Laurel, Ms
I have used this product for 3 years and I absolutely love it! My hair is extremely dry, brittle, and over-processed. This product helps to tame it and it makes my hair look and feel 10 times better!
I love this product
NV from Rochester Hills, MI
Having fine, straight hair, I always look for a product that isn't too heavy. This helps hold a curl, gives my hair great body and is not stiff or sticky. Doesn't build up either. I have been using this product for several years and it's a favorite.
DO NOT order by mail
Gmaof16 from Oklahoma
Good product and use it regularly. Because of COVID, I ordered online. Bad choice. Bad delivery
This is my go - to styling spray
Ksgal from San Antonio
Love this product. It was recommended by my hairdresser.
Worth the money, especially for multi-day hair
Annie from Buford, GA
This product was recommended to me by my stylist. I followed her instructions- I apply this to dry hair (usually second day hair) and allow it to dry (I usually apply my makeup) before I brush it through and begin styling. This prevents that sticky feeling and keeps my hair feeling natural and not crunchy. I usually curl afterwards, and with this product my curls will hold the entire day and also the following day with minimal touch up. I touch my hair A LOT and I have fine hair, and my curls still look great at the end of the day when I use this product! I've already bought another bottle for my mom who also has fine hair, and it gives her great hold on her poker straight hair when curling too!
Laurie from Montana
Just trying this product. May be a little heavy for my thin grey hair.
Juls from Vermont
Unfortunately I went out on a limb to try this. What a mistake. As other reviewers have said, once you spray it on your hair it becomes gummy. What alarmed me was the sizzle I heard once I placed my flat iron on my hair. I will try it as a hairspray once I've finished styling my hair. Will have to find something else.
Tanya from Angier, NC
So not happy with this purchase and I would never buy it again. I spray it in my hair while it was wet and then blow dried it. My hair felt dry, stiff and not soft. After blowing drying my hair, I tried to flat iron my hair and it was very difficult to do because my hair would not slide smoothly threw the flat iron because my hair was so stiff. This product is more like a finishing hair spray that would make your hair stiff. I plan on returning this product to Ulta. Very disappointing!
I would never buy this product again.
Hal from New Jersey
This product is absolutely horrendous. I will never recommenced this product to anyone or use this again myself. It makes my hair extremely crunchy and unmanageable. I highly do NOT recommend this product. Extremely disappointed. Waste of my money and time.
I would not buy this again
Beth from Erie pa
I was hoping this would help the condition of my hair when straightening it but it left my hair way too sticky
Yes I would buy this product again and again
Sherri Jo from Henderson NV
💯% love his product and use it daily
I buy this over and over again!
Syb from CA
I set my hair with velcro rollers and use this styling product to spray and then apply heat to set.
Carol from North Carolina
my hair has a mind of it's own, all the Kenra products are great
More of a hairspray
Mom of 2 from California
I thought it was more of a protecter than hairspray. Will not buy again
Sticky Stiff mess
Kenzie from San Antonio, TX
SO I love Kenra products, but regret this so much. I use the blow dry spray, its my holy grail game changer. I tried this on a whim when it was on sale. Yall. Maybe it is user error, but I sprayed this on a section of semi air dryed hair right before using my flat iron to curl it. It was sticky and stiff, and awful. Halfway through I gave up and took another shower. I couldn't run a brush or fingers through it, it was too much like hair spray. maybe i used too much, but I only used like one spray per section.
I highly recommend the blow dry heat mist, it is so much better. If you're on the fence, I would skip this.
Sad 😞 about this product wish I'd saved my recipe.
HappyMiMi from Fernandina beach Florida
Disappointed ☹️ not up to the standards of Kendra products. It doesn't even have the sweet smell that I love in all their other products. Made my hair stiff and sticky and i was afraid to use my styling tool that it might break my hair.
shel from Georgia
No product is perfect, but I think a lot of the negative reviews here are truly user error. This product has a simple concept: spray on before heat tools, and it holds your style while protecting from the heat. It isn't a hairspray. It has some grip to it because it's meant to hold. It worked really well on my hair, which is fine, but I have a lot of it, and it doesn't like to hold curl.
It made my beach waves look super nice, and held them in place. It does its job, and it smells good. It isn't crunchy, after you use your tool and then break up the curls. The one thing I think could be improved is the sprayer...it kind of does this weird thing where when you spray, you have to give the pump time to "bounce back" before you can spray again. It comes out in a thick mist.
Glad I discovered this during the sale. I'll keep buying it!
not perfect product
Jazzy from Austin, TX
So, it is a hairspray. If you spray it in your hair, when it dries, it'll dry like a hairspray only stiffer and stickier if that makes any sense.
But, if you spray and use it right away to blow dry it's great at holding the style. It still feels stiff and dry though so it's a catch 22.
Yes it'll hold your style, but only when blow dried immediately and it doesn't leave your hair soft. Your fingers will get stuck trying to run your hands through your hair and it leaves it a little dry.
Only way my hair will hold a curl
Collins from North Carolina
Before using this product my hair would never hold a curl- not even for an hour. I section out my hair, spray it, wait a second for it to dry, then curl and my hair stays curled all day. (I use the orange bed head wand) this is not a heat protectant it's more of a pre-heat hairspray.
THIS IS NOT HEAT PROTECTOR ! Should've read the ratings !
Valerie from Tampa
This is hairspray. Not heat protection at all. After a huge conditioning process for my thirsty hair, I ended up ruining it because of it. Hopefully I can ship and get my money back.
