Lordy Lou, I put my hair through so much! It gets washed, blow dried and flat ironed on the regular so I don't blame it for being angry at me. When I received a generous sample of Toni & Guy Heat Protection Mist ($15/5oz) from Birchbox, my hair started weeping with relief. This heat protection spray is designed to protect hair up to 230 C/446 F (wow- that's hot!) It also helps to defrizz strands, provide softness, shine and keep static to a minimum. It may be sprayed generously on towel-dried hair or right before you flat iron or curl it for extra protection. The mist is clear and lightweight with a lovely floral scent that is not overpowering. So, did this mist protect my poor hair from further pain and suffering? More importantly, can I use this spray to protect me in all aspects of my life? (i.e. pms hell, rude people, traffic...)
Verdict: Likey! This mist is lightweight, therefore, it may be used as generously as you please on damp hair. It also has a detangling effect which is a great bonus. It smells yummy and leaves my hair shiny, silky, smooth and healthy looking. My brunette color looks richer and deeper due to the shine effects it provides. It does not volumize though, so I had to add a separate hair product for that to happen. I really liked all the protective benefits it provided especially since I'm so hardcore with my hair.
To purchase or not to purchase? Definitely. It's lightweight without leaving any greasy residue behind, smells wonderful, protects, detangles, smooths and imparts a healthy shine to the hair. While it's not volumizing for me (nor does it promise that), I reaped many benefits with its use. Toni & Guy, thanks for all the protection!
