      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      a great heat defence spray

      I love Toni and Guy products and have been using them for years, when I first started straightening my hair a few years ago, I decided to buy a heat defence spray to stop my hair from getting damaged and drying out. I picked up this spray to protect my hair, and also because it smells amazing, it had the great Toni and Guy scent that all their products have, and reminds me of the hairdressers. Application You can use this spray on either wet or dry hair, I simply spray a little over my hair and brush it through when I am about to use any heat products on it. A little bit of this spray goes a long way, so only a few sprays are needed. Results I really like this heat defence spray, it seems to do its job protecting my hair and also it does not weigh down my hair like some other sprays do. I find that my hair stays nice and healthy looking when I use this spray before applying any heat product to it, like my straighteners, curlers or the blow dryer, also I have less split ends than when I do not use this spray. I found that when applying this product, the scent that is left behind is really nice, it reminds me of the hairdressers and leaves my hair smelling really fresh and clean. There are some other sprays that have conditioning or detangling qualities to them, but this spray just protects and makes hair smell amazing. I think that this is the only downside about this spray. Price and Availability You can buy this spray in Semi Chem for £2.99. I think that this is a great price as a bottle lasts me months, even with continued everyday use. I would definitely recommend picking this bottle up. Overall I think that this is a great heat defence spray, it is well priced and it helps me keep my hair in good condition and smelling amazing, the only disadvantage of this spray is that it does not have any conditioning properties, it is just protects. Overall I would give this spray 4 out of 5 stars. *also on ciao under lorrainek90

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A heat defence spray which protects the hair from heat damage caused by straighters and dryers

      My hair is very frizzy and out of control and because I this I need to blow dry and straighten my hair every day. This can cause even more dry and split ends and can become a vicious circle so I decided to buy a product which would protect my hair from my continual use of heated styling appliance. The product which I chose was the Toni & Guy Iron-It Heat Defence Spray. What does the product do? The product acknowledges that heat styled hair needs extra care and as such it promises to give maximum heat protection to the hair when using heated styling appliances. As well as protecting the hair, the product claims to condition and smooth the hair while also boosting its natural shine. How do you use the product? The product can be used in two different ways depending on the appliance that you are using. If you using the product to protect the hair from blow drying then you apply the product to damp hair that has been shampooed and conditioned. If you are using the product to protect the hair from straightening, then you apply the product to dry hair. You need to hold the can about 20cm from the hair and spray it. When blow drying I spray the product all over and when straightening, I cover my hair a section at a time. Packaging and Price The product comes contained within a heavy, cold metal can. It isn't the most ideal packaging but it's not one that you are likely to need to carry around with you in your handbag so it doesn't matter too much. The can is silver and it has Toni & Guy written on it in minty green writing. The can has some basic information on the back. The top of the can has a white plastic dispenser on it which you push down on to release the product. The product costs around £5 for 200ml of the defence spray and it can be bought from most large department stores and from a variety of online websites. Aroma The product has a lovely fresh aroma. It's hard to describe exactly what the spray smells like but if you have used Toni & Guy products before then you will be familiar with scent as they all have the same fragrance included. It is almost floral and it smells very clean. The aroma lingers on the hair for a few hours after use. It isn't strong enough or unusual enough to be to anyone's disliking. Application The can is quite heavy to hold and it can make your hand ache a little bit if you are spraying the product a lot. It comes out as a very fine mist which has a good range on it so you really do need to hold the can around 20cm away from the hair in order to achieve an even application. It is simple to coat the hair and to get a good coverage. When straightening, one spritz seems to be exactly the right amount needed to cover one section on my long hair. Performance The product coats the hair well so I assume that the product is covering and protecting the strands. My hair does seem soft after use and in a nice condition. It is easy to brush through when I use it on my damp hair and when I use it on dry hair, it doesn't cause any tangles or greasiness. It does seem to enhance the shine of my hair and gives it a certain silkiness. My hair does seem to snap less when I am brushing it and it does seem less dry which means the frizziness stays away for longer. My split ends are less obvious but where this is because they have been smoothed or because the spray is protecting the ends of my hair, I'm not sure. It's hard to say how well a product of this type works because I don't know what condition my hair would be in without the product on my hair. It certainly doesn't have any negative impact on my hair and my hair does seem calmer and in a better condition. All in all, this product doesn't tangle my hair or make it look greasy. It works on both wet and dry hair and it leaves a nice shine behind. It has a lovely fresh aroma which remains on the hair and my hair seems to be protected as there is less frizziness and visible split ends. I will happily continue to use the product and would probably repurchase unless I found a better alternative.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A nice smelling product that works, and when bought as part of an offer, its good value.

      INTRODUCTION I use a lot of toni and guy products. They are always high quality, they always smell great, they do what they're supposed to, and they're pretty much always on offer in Boots. PACKAGING The picture of the packaging here, is not actually the current packaging, it has recently changed, so now comes in a cream coloured metal aerosal can. I think the new packaging look more expensive, as it has very nice curly script writing, rather than the block colour writing of the old can. Like with other aerosal cans, there is a top over the top of the spray pump, however mine always end up a little bit loose, and tend to get lost in the drawer. PRODUCT This smells wonderfully, and the smell stays with your hair long after you've finished blowdrying/straightening. Its hard to tell if products like these work, but my hair is good condition, and seems well nourished and undamaged by heat. It goes on more like a sort of spray of water, and then I just brush it through to my hair to ensure even coverage. Unfortunately, on dry hair, the product does wet your hair a little bit, so expect some hissing from your straighteners. When you first spray it on it smells like generic hair product, but the smell doesn't stay with the hair. Finally, the can last forever, I use it 4 times a week, and I have had my current can for the best for of 6 months. PRICE It is so reguarly on special offer, that there is no reason why you should pay full price. The last time I bought them it was any 2 products from the range for £8, and the time before that they were on 3 for 2 Whilst on its own the products are expensive, once in these deals, they are such good value. CONCLUSION Toni & Guy are a very good, quality brand, and this product is no exception. With so many choices out there its always hard to choose which one to use, so take it from someone who has tried pretty much all of them. This is more expensive than similar products, but is so worth the money.

      Quality shows in the price you pay.

      I do admit that my hair does go through quite a vigorous routine on a daily basis. Regardless of whether I am off out or staying in for the day, I feel the need to wash it at least once a day. After this, I then blow dry it and straighten it until it is poker straight, therefore my hair does go through the wars often due to all of the heat it is being exposed to. As a result of this, the lack of attention for my hair was being shown, and I was faced with a large number of split ends, as well as dry, damaged hair which wasn't a good look. Little did I know how much this Toni & Guy Iron It Heat Defence Spray would restore my hair back to a fabulous condition. I picked it up in a travel size which is 50ml and retails for £1.99, however you can alternatively pick up the full sized version which is 200ml for £6.63 and is available in Boots. Usually, I would not justify paying such a high price for a product like this which I will now be using on a regular basis, however Toni & Guy products are of a high quality, and I have been impressed with many of their hair care range in the past so I was happy to just pick up the 50ml version to take on a trip I was going on. To use this, simply just squirt down and apply all over your hair. I have fairly long hair which comes to around the middle of my back, and I can get away with only squirting this product about ten times, therefore you do only have to use it sparingly for it to be effective. One of my favourite things about this heat defence spray is that it is extremely light, and it almost feels as if you are simply spritzing on water to your hair, whereas other ones I have used in the past have felt quite heavy on the hair. I am not big on styling my hair, I just use straighteners on it, therefore this product is perfect for me because it is really simply to use and only takes about ten seconds to apply it to your whole head. One thing that many people obsess over when buying hair care products is the smell of them. This particular one does not have a fruity scent to it, and it does have a salon scent to it, similarly to most Toni & Guy products. However, it is a nice salon scent and not too overpowering. One of my favourite things about this is that it is so light and helps your hair without you having to feel it. You should apply this before you put heat on to your hair, and I often apply this before straightening my hair. My straighteners go up to 230 degrees celsius, which is quite a high temperature to put on your hair. When I use this however, it really does help to protect my hair well and no damage is caused. Since using it, I have noticed a considerable difference in the vitality of my hair, as it looks much more healthy and shiny, whereas before it was more dull and damaged. Compared to all other heat defence sprays I have used, this has definitely been my favourite, and I would be more than happy to repurchase is regardless of the price.

      Well worth a try!

      I received his product as part of an extensive toni&guy gift set but I have done some on line research on the price I can comprehensively review this product. I received the 50ml bottle, it comes in a reflective silver, thin spray can which looks modern, sleek and elegant. It has both mint green and black typing printed on it so it easily stands out against the silver background. It has a clear lid and really does look professional as per the rest of the toni&guy collection. As previously stated I did some research on the price of this product and the cheapest retailer I could find it at was Boots at £6.63. This may seem somewhat pricey for a small amount of product but upon seeing the overall effect of the product (as can be seen below) it is a small price to pay for amazing locks! The price could be mainly due to the brand name: toni&guy but the product itself is well worth the money, in my honest opinion. This product has a distinct smell: it isn't fruity and it isn't perfumey but the smell is really pleasant and I have found that it stays in the hair well after you first sprayed the product into the hair. The product should be used on dry, clean hair or towel dryed hair before blow drying or straightening. Due to the negative effects that heat products can have on hair it is reassuring to use such a great product. Besides acting a defence against heat it really adds a shine to the hair which makes your hair looks healthier. It also seems to condition the hair and add moisture so the hair never looks dry. Overall, I think this is product is really amazing. Not only does it look good but it leaves your hair in great condition even if it is damaged from hair dye etc. The only downside, perhaps is the price but I think it is worth it because of the added benefits.

      I would definitely recommend this to a friend

      I love this product. I used to have really healthy, shiny hair before I started dying it and straightening it, and after this I didn't think I would ever get that shine back. My hairdresser told me I had really dry hair which i knew this anyway because a month later after a haircut my ends would start to split again. I have tried so many heat protectors, but this one really works for my hair. I apply it when my hair is wet and it stops my hair from frizzing, tangling and leaves it shiny and feeling soft. To be honest I was very sceptical when I bought this product as I have used so many different products to help regain the shine to my hair but I love this product and am definitely going to stick to it. I would recommend it to anyone with severely dry hair.

      Disadvantages

      Worth every penny!

      This was the first ever product I bought to defend my hair from heat when I bought my straighteners. I know the importance of protecting your hair from heat, and I have tried many others but this remains to be one of the best. It's quite expensive but it is a premium haircare brand. It is of very high quality and this is reflected in the price. There are often offers on these products in stores such as Boots and Superdrug. The packaging is also very high quality. It is in a metal cannister which looks funky and modern. I really do love the can, and I think it stands out from it's competitors on this alone. The product itself has an aerosol pump. I find this is great because it distributes the product evenly in a fine mist over a large area, meaning that you won't leave some of your hair unprotected. I trust this product as I feel my hair was very well protected. I do find it leaves a film on your hair though, much like a hairspray does. This can make your hair a little greasy. The smell is, although slightly aerosol-y, quite fresh and pleasant. This product leaves my hair feeling shiny, something that I haven't found from any other heat defence spray. It claims to nourish your hair at the same time, which is a bonus. The can lasts quite a while, and although expensive, I think it is worth the money.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Its a heat defence spray

      What is it? This is a heat defence spray for use with hair straightners, curlers, crimpers basically every kind of heat styling tool you can think of. It is designed to protect hair against the damage that heat styling can do to it. It also conditions hair and is suppost to give a natural shine. How I used it I firstly section my hair lifting the top layer first with a hair clip I them spray on the spray on the hair which is out of the clips and then use my straightners to straighten my hair. Its no use just straightening the top layer of hair if you really want a smooth look and I find sectioning is the best way to get that straight look. Once one section is done I release some more hair and then repeat the process. What I thought I usually use Lee Stafford Heat Protect Spray I have reviewed this previously I you want to take a look anyway with Lee Stafford I like the smell (it is a love it hate it smell) and I like the results. This one I found was more like hairspray and I felt it was a little sticky the smell was also quite chemical which I was not to keen on. Anyway once my hair was done it did look shiny and smooth (although it felt funny) and thats what I really use it for not to 'protect my hair' lol if I was that fussed about that I wouldn't use heat styling gadgets in the first place. I will give this 3 stars because it does make your hair shiny its just that personally I didn't like the smell or the way it made my hair feel. It comes in a 500ml bottle for £5.99 and a 50ml travel size one for around £2.

        A bargain heat protector that works

        I have tried many heat defence sprays for my hair since discovering the power of hair straightening when I was about 15. I think it is important to find a good heat defence spray for your hair these days as there are so many electrical hair products on the market, with most of them reaching to a very high degree of heat when directly in contact with your hair which can lead to split ends, dry, brittle even snapping hair! It is only in the last year that I have found a heat defence spray for my hair that I completely trust and use all the time now! The heat defence spray is from the Toni and Guy range and they describe their product as Iron-It Heat Defence Spray, which implies that you can use this spray whilst using your hair straighteners, which of course, you can! But you can use this spray with ANY electrical heat device to protect your hair! (hair dryers, curling tongs etc). I first tried the spray after purchasing it in my local Boots with one of those £2 off vouchers that you sometimes receive with your receipt after you have purchased in store. The voucher stated that I could have £2 off a number of professional hair care products within Boots, and the Toni and Guy range was included in the offer. I had already used (and still use) the Toni and Guy Boost It Mousse and Hairspray so I thought I should try their Iron - It Heat Defence Spray as I was in need of a new hair protector whilst using my hair straighteners and hair dryer. Toni and Guy Iron - It Heat Defence Spray comes only in a 200ml can for around £6. I think is really reasonable, especially if you use one of those £2 off vouchers. The product comes in a silver aerosol can with Turquoise writing on the front with a description of how/when to use the spray. I like to spray the product on damp hair just before blow drying my hair, but you can use the spray on dry hair too, just before using your hair straighteners. Basically, use when ever and how ever you like! When I first tried the spray, I took off the lid and shook the can a little. My hair was damp as I had come out from the shower. I then held the can around 20cm from my head (as the instructions tell you too), and began to spray. I was really impressed with how the product dispensed from the can. A large amount of micro fine mist came out (like a spray tan in a can would come out) and in just one spray, half of my hair was coated ! The smell was quite pleasant too. Fresh and Light. It only took around 6-7 sprays for my hair to be completely covered (root to tip) and I then proceeded to brush my hair so that my hair was fully coated all over. I used an untangling brush which is great as my hair can get quite knotty after washing. But I also found that the heat defence spray slightly untangled my hair too! Fab! After blow drying my hair I felt that my hair was very well protected. Not weighed down what so ever. My hair looked glossy and it felt in very good condition. I noticed on the back of the can that you can even use the spray as a leave in conditioner for extra nourishment. And I could even use my hair mousse as well and I still felt that my hair was light weight and not greasy or over loaded with hair products. Since using the Toni and Guy Iron - It Heat Defence Spray, my hair looks healthier then before and is much stronger and in better condition then ever. My hair has been well protected since using this product and I would recommend everybody to try it. I would say though that if you put too much on then your hair can get a little greasy. No more then 7 sprays is plenty. I use this product every single day without fail and a can normally lasts me 5 months which I think is amazing !!! None of my other hair products have ever lasted that long! Anyone can use this spray. All hair types, all ages. Women/Men. Anybody! If you want fantastic heat protection for your hair, use this!!!

        Disadvantages

        Good value for money, does its job, would recommend!

        This is a lovely-smelling spray that lasts absolutely ages. I use it almost everyday and have very long, thick hair, but it lasts a few months. You don't need to apply much, the range covered by the spray is big, so I only do around 4-5 sprays on each side. It doesn't leave hair sticky or greasy-looking, it's very light. I apply it both when my hair's damp and when it's dry, but if applying to dry hair, leave it for a couple of minutes to dry before straightening. At around £6-7 for 200ml depending on where you buy it, I'd say it is good value for money considering how long it lasts. It doesn't completely prevent any heat damage at all but no spray will. I think my hair is in better condition since using this spray as it used to be much more brittle and break a lot, though I do still get quite a few split-ends. I also use it in combination with good shampoo and conditioner and leave-in conditioner so can't be sure of the effect the spray has alone but I definitely think it helps, and hairdressers always recommend I use one. I've always stuck with this spray since I first tried it a couple of years ago and will definitely carry on using it.

        Disadvantages

        For that just been to the pub smell...and appearance!

        I love my straighteners but out of fear of wrecking, or more precisely burning my hair I always, always use a heat defence/protection spray before both blow-drying and a little before straightening. In my quest to find THE BEST protection spray I have come across many different branded products; purchasing items in price ranging from the £5 mark to the £20 mark give of take a few pounds. One of the early products I tried was the Toni and Guy 'Iron-It' heat defence spray which claims to protect your hair from heat damage whilst styling, and as Toni and Guy are or is a well-known and reputable brand I thought they'd be a safe bet/starting point. I first used this spray before blow-drying my hair, spraying the product over my head and then brushing it through whilst wet, after which I began blow-drying my hair: Expected Results: Shiny, healthy looking hair Almost straight appearance (It is called Iron-It) Few fly-away, frizzy hairs Smooth, soft-to-touch finish Actual Results: My hair didn't look any shinier and healthier than before My hair was no straighter Numerous fly-away hairs sticking up on top An almost matte and slightly sticky texture to the dried hair Clearly 'Iron-It' was not a good product to use as a heat-defence spray before blow-drying. So test-one...FAIL. Secondly, and on a different occasion for fairness, I used the 'Iron-It' spray before straightening, applying and brushing the spray over dry hair. Expected Results Smooth, healthy looking hair Manageable and straight hair, smooth in it's appearance with no fly-aways and a sleek look Soft to touch Actual Results: Again my hair felt sticky and a little greasy and had little shine, in all actuality the spray had done more to 'dull-down' my colour rather than make it appear healthy and well-cared for. Also, as final condemnation for the product, although it smells ok when you first spray it onto your hair a couple of hours later it smells stale. Not good, and you will find that this stale smell lingers with you throughout the day until you wash your hair, far from having any positive comments from anyone regarding my hair when I used this product I only had a solitary: 'did you go to the pub or something earlier' from my partner who thought he could smell old beer, smoke and other nasties on my hair!!!! Needless to say I immediately re-washed my hair and chucked the product!

        Disadvantages

        Not for me!!!!

        I absolutely love to straighten my hair and am addicted to my GHD straighteners, therefore it is important to find a product that you know is going to give you the protection you need and not ruin your hair in the process. As I have already mentioned in a previous review my favourite hair protector is Lee Stafford's Poker Straight Flat Iron Protection Shine Mist (please see previous review) However..... one day a friend gave me this Tony and Guy Iron-It Heat Defence Spray, is in the interest of being polite and not being ungrateful (I will try anything once) I decided to try it out. As I said I try anything once, I have only used this once, literally!! ~ The Price ~ As this was a gift I popped into my local Boots to look into the price. £5.99 for 200ml. ~ The packaging ~ This product is packaged in a silver aerosol style can. It has turquoise text going up it. It is plain and simple, nothing out of the ordinary and does not stand out at all, in my opinion. ~ The claim ~ "maximum heat protection for straight styles" "heat straightened hair needs special care. This light spray protects against heat damage, conditions and smoothes, boosting natural shine" ~ My verdict ~ Like I said above I only used this product once. Before a night out with close friends I decided to straighten my hair and use my new heat defence spray and try it out. I used this on dry hair. I sectioned off my hair like I usually do and sprayed each section before running the straighteners through it. The spray was fine and easy to use. I had no problems with using this and the spray went right where I want it. A little went a long way. I was very happy with the result. My hair was straight and also had a nice shine to it so looked healthy. A major problem I had with this product, thus being the reason I have not used it since is the smell. Honestly I feel it smells almost of cigarettes. This is not the smell of a heat protection I would like to use. I like ones that smell fresh and pleasant. I was not the only person that thought this, a few close friends upon hugging me asked if I had started smoking, I had to explain. These friends did however comment that my hair looked great. If one can get past the smell then they would have protected hair that looks great. Personally smell is very important to me and I would have to if used again spray my hair with perfume after use. However because I like the Lee Stafford product I just use that instead. I have rated this a 3 star, purely based upon the smell... I can not rate any higher. I am sure there will be others out there who love this but it is not for me. Thank you for reading my review, it is very much appreciated!

          Disadvantages

          Indispensable product if you use straighteners

          I absolutely love this heat spray! I've used several in the past and I must admit I just used to opt for the cheapest, biggest bottle I could find but the condition of my hair started to go really bad so I thought it was time to spend a bit more money. This product was ideal as they sell a smaller travel size as well as the standard size. Not only is this really useful if you're going away but it means you can try the product for a lower price instead of buying a huge bottle and finding out it's not for you. I got mine from Boots and they often do vouchers on Toni & Guy products so there may be the option of money off. If not, at least you get your advantage card points! The product itself is just a normal spray on heat protector. I've used it both when my hair is wet and when I've let it dry naturally. If you do use it on dry hair just be aware that you need to give it a few minutes to dry otherwise your hair will sizzle when you straighten it! I use the product quite liberally but it last ages and you can feel the difference when you are straightening it. It just feels really smooth. I use GHD's which get obscenely hot but the condition of my hair is getting better so it must be doing a good job. My hair feels silky and looks shiny after I've straightened it. The only thing I don't like about this product is the smell when it's wet. It just smells a bit chemically and nasty. Bizarrely it smells totally different (and really nice) once I've done my hair.

          Great non-greasy heat protecting spray

          Although Toni & Guy Iron It Heat Defence Spray is a Toni & Guy Salon Brand product, it is available to buy exclusively from most Boots stores as part of the wider Toni & Guy range. The full size bottles cost £5.49 and miniature versions are also available at £1.69. I use this heat defence spray on pretty much a daily basis. It is a light spray which does not leave my hair feeling greasy - unlike some cheaper brands which I have tried. The 'spray' actually operates as a pump, which means you can easily distribute as much or as little as you like throughout your hair. You can use when drying your hair (spray onto towel dried hair) to protect from the damage which can occur from using a drier for long periods of time, I find my hair feels much smoother when dried using the spray. You can also use on dry hair to protect it from the splitting and burning which can happen from frequently using straighteners. I do find that when doing this the straighteners will sometimes give off a sizzling sound - but don't worry - this is the Heat Defence Spray evaporating, not your hair! Overall a great product which I would recommend for day to day use. The miniatures are equally good and will last for about a week so excellent for short breaks away without weighing down your toiletries bag.

          Sorry For Any Spelling Mistakes!!

          Ive been meaning to write a review on this for ages but to be completely honest I had totally forgot what the product was called! That is until I read another dooyoo review on this the other day and that spurred me into action to write my own review on it. Now I mentioned in a review the other day that I do put my hair through a lot on a daily basis. I change the cut, colour and style at least once a month and I straighten it more or less everyday so a few months ago I decided I needed to find a product that would stop me doing so much damage to my hair every day and stop me getting any more split ends if possible! So I went shopping to find a product that would promise to do just that, and this one is the one I settled on. The woman in Boots told it me it is the one she personally uses and her hair looked pretty good so I thought (and hoped) it would do the same for me. And I was totally right! And now I know the name of teh product Im going to buy some more tomorrow! Packaging: I think this spray can be bought in to different sizes: a travel sized can which contains 50ml and a proper sized bottle that contains 150ml, the latter is the one I personally own. The packging as with all Toni & Guy products is actually quite simply but I think that makes it look quite trendy and classy and this just goes to show you dont have to have amazing packaging when the product inside is so great. The packaging itself is a silver, steel colour with the product name on the front in a bright turqoiuse which I really like. Underneath the lid there is a push down sort of aerosol spray button which you simply push down to spray onto your hair. The Claim: Toni & Guy claim this spray will not only protect your hair against heat damage but it will also condition and smooth your hair and boost its natural shine. I was somewhat sceptical when it came to using this spray of rthe first time because in the past a lot of these "heat portector" sprays have left my hair looking really greasy and feeling proper heavy which trust me is not a good look! But because Toni & Guy is such a well known and trusted brand I didnt think this one would let me down. Application: You can apply this to both wet and dry hair but I have found I get teh best results from it when I use it on totally dry hair. However I did just read another review on this and the person said she found the best results were given when it was used on wet hair so I guess it is down to the individual and that persons hair type. Try it both ways is my suggestion. You simply hold this spray can 10cm away from your hair and apply liberally to any part that you are planning to use heat on. I have found that no matter how much of this spray you apply my hair has never felt or looked greasy so you can really use as much or as little spray as you like depending on your hairs thickness and length. I have noticed when this is applied to dry hair and then you run the straightners over the top of it you do get a slight sizzling noise which is a bit worrying but Ive never found that this causes any problems so I dont think it harms your hair or your straightners in any way. This spray is really light and does not make you hair feel heavy or greasy at all no matter how much you spray onto it so so far it was working pretty well for me. The Smell: I did think that this was worth mentioning because I really like the scent of this product. If I can remember rightly it smells like coconut and that in turn makes it really fresh. The scent for some might be really overpowering when you first spray it on but once you have given your hair a go over with the striaghtners the smell fades down a bit leaving you with really clean smelling hair but the smell seems to last all day and Im a smoker so any smells from haircare products or perfume seem to disappear of my skin and hair as soon as I light up so that is a nice added touch I reckon. The Results: As soon as I had finished straightening my hair I could feel the difference in my hair already. Just from touching it I could tell it was a lot softer and I know it going to sound weird but I felt after just one application it had actually helped my split ends a little bit! So obviously I ran to ahe a look in the mirror and I was proper shocked with what I saw. My hair looked healthier and more shiny than I think it had ever done and there wasnt a sight of a split end anywhere! So not only did my hair feel smooth and nourished it also looked and smelt gorgeous as well. I would definately say that this product lives up to every claim it makes and with continued use I think it actually makes a difference to the split ends you may already hae, even though it makes to claim to do that! For me this is an all round winner. I actually had loads of people commenting on how nice my hair looked that day and some people were even asking me the name of the product I had used to get it looking like that, and every girl loves a compliment right? Price: A 150ml bottle of this wonder spray will cost you around £5 in any Boots store or online on the Boots website. One can of this spray does last a very long time and it delivers fabulosu results so I reckon it is great value for money. Overall Opinion: I am off to go and buy myself another bottle of this tomorrow now I finally know the name of the product (that will teach me not to through the can away as soon as its finished next time!!) and I strongly suggest that every else tries this wonder spray out for themselves. If you want a heat defence spray that does exactly what it says on the tin (and more!) then this is the one for you. I cant wait to try out more Toni & Guy products now because if they are all as great as this one Ill soon become addicted to this range!
