Rated 4.25 out of 5 stars
I have dry, colored, highlighted, mature, fine, wavy hair.
Perfecting Spray is a real keeper for my type of hair. It makes my hair very soft and silky and not "poofy" when I dry it - and not greasy or weighed down. For fine hair, that is really important!
However, I had to use a liberal amount, not just a few spritzes. I really had to coat my hair to really protect it.
It is a great freshener for the lengths and end of day 2 or even day 3 hair, when it starts to get dry, frizzy, pouffy or brillo-y on the ends but the roots are still looking good. Again I spray pretty liberally, let dry and my hair looks fresh and pretty again
I have long, fine--but a lot of it, hi-lighted hair. I use this hair product line, but I'm having a hard time loving it. It seems to leave a build up on my hair and this leave in seems to really dull my hair. I haven't noticed any improvements since using both the shampoo/conditioner/leave in. Won't purchase the restore line once I am finished with it. Still searching for the perfect shampoo/conditioner.

I decided to try this product when it was 50% off because I was in need of a relacement for Redkin's 25 Benefits because they started adding protein to it since I had last stocked up 2 years ago, and I have long super fine but extremely thick/dense low porosity 2b-3a but mostly 2C curly hair that's super protein sensitive and I wear it both straight and curly, and if a product has protein/keratin/etc. in it my hair gets dry, brittle, and crunchy within 1-3 uses. And despite the brand claiming this is safe for protein sensitive hair it's definitely not, this had my hair feeling like straw by the second use, in the way that only protein/keratin type ingredients do. It didn't feel good with the first use either but I wanted to be sure this was the cause before giving up on it. I'll be returning, if your hair is sensitive to protein or any protein adjacent ingredients, skip this.

Works very well. Makes my hair softer.

I have fine bleached hair that loves to tie in knots after washing. Conditioner weighs my hair down and leaves it flat. A few sprays of this product on the tangles makes it easy to comb out, provides body and offers heat protection. Works great for me.

It's perfect for my hair. I have coarse hair and it's beautiful for my curls. Thank you, Ulta.

This Restore Perfecting Spray is awesome. I spray it in my middle lengths when it is damp and my hair looks and feels great. I have hair down to my butt and this spray keeps it from tangling and damage free. No frizziness. I use QUAI oil just on the ends when damp to avoid split ends with Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray on the mids to keep it healthy and hydrated. I love the way this combo works in my fine hair. I have a lot of hair but it is fine, and neither product weighs it down nor makes it look greasy or oily. My hair looks full and healthy.

A little goes a long way. This made my hair soft and it's moisturizing!
Lindy from Texas
An excellent leave-in conditioner that actually sprays on evenly. It's my new favorite.
Mar from San Diego
This product came in highly recommended for thin hair and I have a very thin hair. Love this product and have been using it for 1 year will continue to use. It is not greasy & does not weigh my hair down.

I've tried this 3 times now, sure that I was just using it wrong. I have hi-lift blonde hair (not bleach) and this made my hair weirdly dry feeling and knotty as the day went on. Definitely had to wash it out the next day. Maybe it's Not as good on colored hair??

Seriously, the best leave-in I've used!
CJ from Costa Mesa
I have fine straight long colored hair. Based on reviews I lightly sprayed (one to two sprays max) on the bottom portion of my hair. I only used it three times. It made my hair extremely dry, tangled, dull and full of static. Also faded the color on my ends. My hair was so shiny and healthy before I used this. So disappointed. I am going to return this.

Worst thing I have ever put in my hair!
I have long straight fine bleached hair that I curl once a week (air dry my hair) so looking for a heat protector. Online search rated this a top pick so I ordered, what a mistake!
It left my hair feeling like straw and as the day went on it caused it to look like I had back combed it as my hair brushed against my back (looked like a rat's nest)! Couldn't run my fingers through my hair it was so dry and brittle! I washed my hair 4 times trying to get it back to feeling normal and it still felt awful after!
If I could give negative stars I would!

I'm upset that I used and breathed this in for years and it contains Octafluoropentyl Methacrylate, a PFAS and forever chemical, that is bad for the environment and for health. Definitely not a "healthy hair molecule." I have recently developed an autoimmune condition too. I never would have used if I had known.
Jacque from Circleville, OH
This is the best restoring and heat protection spray I have ever used. It leaves my hair really soft and shiny without weighing it down. When I use a flat iron or curling iron my hair actually gets shinier and softer as if the heat activates something in this spray. My hair isn't breaking off nearly as much as it used to before using this spray.
Patricia from Yeadon, Pennsylvania
My granddaughter loves this and uses it all the time
Casey from Columbus, OH
I reordered my Living Proof Full Conditioner and this came as a free sample with the order. NOPE. I tried it for the first time today on damp hair and somehow my hair instantly felt brittle and dry. I usually use It's a 10 and I would highly recommend that product over this.
Alaina from Michigan
Every single time I've tried to use this as a pre-blow drying heat protectant spray (four separate times now) it's made my hair EXTREMELY tacky feeling & tangly, unable to run my fingers through it, not even an inch. I've never used a pre-styling spray product that did this. When I try to run my fingers through it, it feels as if I've used an entire bottle of texture spray already all throughout my hair. For reference: I have long, blonde, fine hair, and LOTS of it. After I wash & blow dry it, I can run my fingers clear through it easily even though I have a ton of hair. Usually I can't do any styling (curling/waving) til the second or third day bc it just won't hold since the hairs too soft. With every other pre-blow drying spray product I've used, my hair was soft like usual. This one was exactly the opposite. Like I said earlier, after you use this it feels like what your hair feels like when you have a massive amount of texturizing products built up in your hair: tacky, tangly, not soft, & causing yelps of pain when you unsuccessfully attempt to run your hands/fingers through it. The product I usually use is expensive, Davines OI All In One Milk, so I try to try new ones like this living proof one, but always end up going back to the Davines one. Drop this one & run don't walk to the Davines spray!

I have been trying to find a detangling spray for my hair and have tried many. Well, I have found my spray. Its great, spray and comb, no knots.. It also smells great. Made my hair feel very soft. Will buy again.
Missy13 from San Francisco, CA
I don't understand why all the positive reviews. This Restore spray does absolutely NOTHING for my hair. I have baby fine highlighted long hair; It does not detangle at all, my hair felt dry and I had a bunch of frizz on my ends after using. I've retried it several times and nope, same result. It's so bad! I will stick with my Pureology Strength Cure Miracle Filler leave-in spray, that one does an amazing job at detangling and smoothing my hair. This stuff is no better than expensive water.
Asheley from Harrisburg, PA
I have fine to medium shoulder length hair and I wanted to love this product. I just can't. It creates this build up on my roots and leaves my hair looking so greasy that I just want to wash it again. This is a hard no for me and I will be returning it.
theresa134 from Layton Utah
Please don't waste your money on this tiny trial size. just get the full size, it's a much better value. if you don't like it return it.
I have fine thin curly hair and I love this to detangle, heat protect and condition.
Tara from Scottsbluff, NE
works pretty good, makes your hair smoother. had a sample of this and had been using it on my dry hair and it worked great (and smells amazing). So, I bought a regular sized bottle and actually read the directions, and you are supposed to use it on damp hair......so. will soon see how it works on damp hair how it's supposed to be used-probably will work even better!
Mary from Louisville Kentucky
I use this product in my hair after I get out of the shower. I'm usually not able to get a brush through my hair but with this product I can. Unfortunately I just can't afford The shampoo and conditioner to go with it. But the spray is amazing!
Liz from Virginia
I genuinely wanted to like this product. I tried using different amounts, spraying on my hands to distribute through my hair, only using it when my hair is really wet, etc. My hair soaks up product really easily and this somehow made my hair feel sticky whether I used a hair dryer or air dried. I tried switching my shampoo/conditioner thinking I had a rinse issue leaving residue, but nope. It's definitely this. I do like how it smells and it does detangle very well initially, but I just can't get past the sticky tangly feeling. Since it wasn't cheap I'll be using it when my hair is going up in braids or a bun just for detangling after the shower.

I bought this brand after using CHI 44 Iron Guard. I don't really notice the difference, and the reason for the 4 stars is that it is very pricey. The spray mechanism on this is not great, either.
