It gets the job done, meaning it doesn't let my hair get damaged but the ingredients are so harmful that I wouldnt use it too often.

There’s a lack of heat protectant to choose from unfortunately. This one is on the better end compared to some of the others. I usually prefer a serum but this works because the spray helps for the heat protectant to distribute all over. My hair and my daughters hair haven’t experienced any damage so it’s doing it’s job. However I do wish it didn’t have such harmful ingredients in it.

I really like using this heat protector. My hair always bounce back when I need my curls back. I also noticed that when I curl or flat iron my hair it holds that style till I need to wash my hair again.

It *technically* works, but it makes your hair stiff. I don’t feel like I have heat damage, but it’s much more like hairspray. The smell is also strong, and the fine mist spreads it around a lot. Very unpleasant if you happen to breathe it in

I absolutely love this product! First time using it and I don’t want to go back to any other product after trying this one out. I spray it before curling my hair.

Loved this other product from this brand so I gave this a try after running out of my old spray. Noticed it made my hair feel dry. Rough, too. It was strange. It almost felt like how my hair feels about 3 days without a wash.. dirty? Wanted to love it but it wasn't for me!

I kept my hair frizz free in Florida humidity but it left a sticky residue after blow drying. I don’t usually blow dry my hair and it’s really curly so I liked the fact that it didn’t frizz but the sticky residue was so annoying

I’ve been using this for several months now. Don’t really have anything to compare it with, as I haven’t used a heat protectant before. I have no complaints with this and my hair is much healthier since I have included this in my new hair routine.

I can’t stand how this spray smells. It smells like dog shampoo lol. It does add a bit of shine though and I mean it works as far as I can tell. I just don’t know if I can keep using it because of the smell.

Cantu is made for all hair types. This is great protection when you go to straighten your hair. It protects you all the way from heat dme of the hot blade in the styling product that you use. Dries on clear and does not leave residue in your hair.
