I was super excited to try this product when I received it in my April birchbox after the preview video. Click down below to see if I liked it or not.
What it promises:
We tend to gravitate toward products that have as many functions as Imelda Marcos has pairs of shoes. (Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration.) Beauty Protector’s leave-in mist is about as versatile as they come. It conditions, shields from heat and sun damage, and–of course–detangles, among other things. Plus, it’s 100% vegan and suitable for all hair types.
How it Works
This paraben- and sulfate-free detangler seals the cuticles (the microscopic scales that compose the outermost layer of each strand of hair). It also smooths and moisturizes, thereby minimizing frizz, while safeguarding color and adding shine. Lastly, it provides protection against UV rays and heat. Happily, it accomplishes all this through a weightless, non-greasy formula that leaves behind an airy floral scent.
How to Use
Shampoo, condition, and towel dry hair. Hold the Protect & Detangle bottle four to six inches away from your scalp, and spray a few times. Comb through hair to ensure that the product is evenly diffused, and style as desired.
What I found:
This product was a big push item within birchbox. A product made just for birchbox. In the preview video they made such a fuss over it because it was such a big multi tasker, heat protection and repair? Sign me up!
This product has a lot of claims to back. Such as:
- Instant detangler
- Thermal protector
- UV protector
- Seals cuticle
- Smoothed hair
- Locks in color
- Adds shine
- For all hair types
- Use daily
That is a lot to promise for one product!
The first time I used the spray it was on damp hair just from mid shaft to ends. I used it to help protect my fragile, damaged hair. It made my ends sticky, and hard to comb through. I instantly did not like that. It made my hair have a gummy feeling. I threw my hair in a bun that day since I didn’t have time to wash it out.
I decided to try it three other times wit the same reactions. Even on soaking wet hair it just didn’t react the way everyone else saids it does. I have damaged, lightened hair and it just didn’t get along with this product. It made my hair feel gross.
- Smells nice
- Just didn’t work for me
- Made my hair gummy
Verdict: This product has over 9,300 reviews on birchbox along with a 4 1/2 star rating out of 5. Clearly this works for a lot of people, but this isn’t for my damaged hair. This is a skip for me sells for $22. Sells one Birchbox.com only.
If you want to try birchbox for yourself click through here and help me out! I wholeheartedly recommending trying it out! I love it! I also think this is better than ispy because they do have a point reward system that when you review a product from the box on their site they give you 10 points. When you reach 100 points you get $10 to spend in the store where you can buy full size products of the items you get from your box!
