Most Helpful Positive Review I recommend this product
I did get this proudict for free but all opinions are my own and origional. I personaly probably wouldn't buy this prouduct myself since I don't use leave in conditioners often since they leave my hair really oily but this one however doesn't and I love that I got it for free! The prouduct smells amazing light weight, application is early you spray it in your hair and just brush through it can also be used as a de-tangler so far I love this prouduct and plan on using it often.
Most Helpful Critical Review Too Strong To Handle
I was so excited to use this product since I have been using the way to grow conditioner and shampoo. I have extremely curly hair, which I flat-iron everyday. I needed a strong holding heat protectant for back to school.
After the first use, my hair reeked of this overpowering, fake strawberry/ fruity smell, which actually I ended up washing my hair again due to the my headaches from this product. If you are intolerant to strong smells, have a sensitive nose, or you seriously hate fake smelling products, DO NOT BUY THIS.

Tbh I don't see what the backlash is about? It doesn't smell like alcohol at all to me, thought it does smell fruity & a bit cheap. I have very wavy hair & honestly my hair looks completely fine after using this spray & straightening my hair. It even looks shiny & is soft so I really don't see any issues with it
Paige from Illinois
I was nervous to try this because of the reviews, but I had a positive experience! The product did not smell like alcohol to me it had a strong fruity type scent. After spray my hair felt a bit stiff but after brushing through that helped. This helped my hair not feel straw like and damaged after curling it! I would definitely use again especially for the price!
Should have read the reviews
Rebs from NC
I can't say I've seen a flammable warning on something you put on your hair before applying heat, but this one does. I tried it for a few days, the result was always crunchy, straw like hair. It felt like using cheap hair spray to keep my hair from heat damage. It's going back.
this will ruin your hair in one use!!!
Eva the Diva from Portland
I'm a cautious buyer and typically do my research... that being said I was in a pinch to purchase heat protectant and decided on this brand because I love other products of theirs.
The smell is horrendous. Smells like alcohol! Normally I don't mind chemically or semi off putting scents because it normally wears off but this scent lingers. After spraying, my hair became coarse, dry and I felt like my hair was singeing off as I flat ironed it. After, my hair frizzed, felt dry, and not as straight as it normally is.
I tried 3 more separate times and their is no doubt this spray damaged my hair. After a good wash, I still have some of this product lingering. DONT BUY UNLESS YOU WANT STRAW LIKE HAIR.
PS THE FIRST INGREDIENT IS ALCOHOL!!!

Dani from USA
This product is good for the price. It smells pretty cheap, little Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea. After a few months of sitting in the bottle (after opening), the product did start to get sticky. However, it has kept my hair healthy.
Ok, not great
Kate from Arizona
I used it on dry hair before heat styling.
not sure yet
sav from louisville, ky
i got this because i ran out of a heat protectant for when i style my hair and it was cheap. however, i didnt read the reviews before i purchased (which is unlike me). i have to say the smell is very intense and definitely smells like an alcohol. not too happy about that but that's really my only complaint so far.
fried my hair
lolzies from El paso Texas
i have CURLY/WAVY hair and having a good heat protector is a major thing i need to be able to have straight hair and also bring out my curls. i used this maybe till 1/3 was left and the amount of just ALCOHOL the smell already warned me. my hair is already dry and it just made it drier and drier and it completely stripped all of my natural oils and ruined my hair cuticle. the L'oréal Elive Protect Recharge works so much better and it's just a leave in.
not the best but not the worst
kayla from ohio
i've been using this product for a while now and i will say my hair doesn't feel too burnt out. however, the nozzle gets clogged easily so the spray is more of a direct hit rather than misting over a whole area. it also leaves a sticky feeling when it's not completely dry.
Not a fan
Baby Squaw from Dothan Alabama
It actually dried my hair and made it frizzy. I should have paid a few more dollars and bought Miracle 10.
Works better as a hairspray
Maddie from Marysville, WA
Feels more like a hair spray and makes my hair hard to brush when trying to style. Do not recommend as a heat protectant
Not what I expected
Parkerboysagain from Ohio
Does not make my hair shiny or sleek at all. Feels gummy
BHrkn from South Carolina
This was the worst thermal spray I have ever used. My hair looked oily/wet and felt crunchy.
Makes hair shiny and does ok with heat protection
Rach89 from Modesto, CA
It seems ok with heat protection, my hair looks shiny forsure after straightening it. I don't like the smell, way to strong and I don't like the stiff feeling, I have to brush my hair all day to make sure it doesn't tangle up or stick together. I won't be buying it again.
esp from massachusetts
dried my hair out like crazy, smells weird, and has a flammable warning on the side of the bottle???? it says to wait for it to dry before putting heat on your hair, but it hardens like hairspray.
JUST SAY NO
jaybrooke from ga
I normally love the natural mother's line, But this heat protectant spray is absolutely horrible! It is very drying! It literally made my hair feel like straw, My hair felt so horrible that I immediately washed it after blow drying it and did a deep conditioning treatment. I don't understand how it has four stars. of I could give none I would.
it made my hair fall out!!!!
peach from North Carolina
i used it just as it said to and my hair was coming out in clumps which is not normal for my hair. the day after I stopped using this product it stopped. I know it was the spray because it was the only new product i was using.
Sofia from Florida
Smells good but it's extremely drying and it leaves my hair totally lifeless. I usually trust not your mother's so I didn't even look at the ingredients in the store, but when I read it today I found out that it has a really cheap alcohol listed as it's first ingredient. Just don't buy it, I'm extremely disappointed.
I wish I could give it zero stars
Val from WV
Please, don't buy this product. The little bit of vitamins and oils aren't going to help the damage this will cause. The ingredients are TERRIBLE. The first ingredient is denatured alcohol. That's bad enough. Let's not ignore the fact that this "thermal shield" literally has an "extremely flammable" warning right on the bottle. It's supposed to be for heat though. Please, whatever you do, don't use this.
i would buy this again
jaden from fairmont wv
I really like this heat protectant, it smells amazing and is overall very nice.
Claudia M from Phoenix, AZ
I have been using this for a couple days now and it smells so weird and makes my hair crunchy when i spray it in. The smell to me is similar to a beer smell...and i don't really want my hair smelling like beer when I'm going to an appointment or meeting.
Bottle doesn't spray
Lainey from clifton park, New York
I only use the product maybe once a week, so far after a couple months it's decent. I feel like it does what it's supposed to but I wouldn't purchase again. Smell is very chemical covered with like cheap perfume, doesn't bother my sensitiveness to scents but not pleasant either.
Biggest con is the spray part barely sprayed, after 2 time's I kept having to pull it out to press it again. Ended up putting it in a spritzer bottle and tossing the original.
smells like beer
Mary from U.S.
The smell is too much had to return. I thought to myself well the smell will go away after i style my hair. Nope lasted like all day, too much
Ruined my hair
Sunnylknnes from Henderson NV
I have naturally curly hair and like to flat iron it every once in a while. I literally used this product two different times. After the second time I washed my hair like normal and I came out of the shower and my curl is gone!! The next day I washed again to see if it would get better and it didn't. I didn't know what in the world happened. I went to see my hair girl and get a trim and she said there was a sticky build up on my hair and she detoxed it and even after that she still was scraping some off. This was only after 2 uses!! My daughter has also been using it and I was talking to her and she keeps her hair flattened all the time but she said I noticed when I got out of the shower my hair wasn't curly the last time. I felt her hair also and it's sticky and that's the only product she has in it. We will try to return these and never use again!!
