Let me start by saying I use to swear by this stuff. So this isnt a one try didnt like it thing..I have thick, coarse, poofy, frizzy, wavy hair (part Arabic and native american) & years of dying & flat irons started to wear on it so I thought I should add a heat protectant. My bfs mom had a bottle of this, so I gave it a shot. At first it was a god send. Smoother, less frizz, shiney, I was over the moon!! I used this product for over a year and thought I'd found the answer to my prayers..but I slowly started to notice alarming changes. I attributed them to other factors at first but the one constant was always this spray...I have developed horrific dandruff that I've never had issue with, dryness to the point my scalp broke out. Sometimes almost blisters that made it hard to brush my hair. No matter how dry my hair is after spritzing the slightest heat fries my hair. I have wierd kinky sections where even at the lowest temp the spraying making contact with my hair has just destroyed sections. Ive tried trimming it out over time, but I noticed it always came back after the spray and heat applied to it. I have a spot in the back that is the size of my hand that will take me over a year+ to grow out and trim off, bangs same thing, a 5 inch section in the front/right. Since stopping the spray, the new growth is normal and healthy..FALL OUT! I lose alot of hairs, but it's never been anything unusual, never any signs of thinning...but when my bf came out of the bathroom after I washed my hair with legitimate concern asking was something wrong because it looked like half my hair was in the tub, I knew something wasnt right. I checked every possible option as to why this was happening. I even had my hormones checked. The one constant, again..this spray. This stuff al lost cost me my hair. My bfs mom said she had similar issues but because of her problems with hair loss already it didnt take her as long to notice a problem (& she thought it was just her. Never really talked about it to each other).. So this is not just 1 person with a bad reaction. Might work wonders for you, but if you notice problems, dont discount them or think you are crazy. It took till my hair falling out rapidly to realize it was this and not medicines, or hormones, or the other 100 things I thought. Since stopping this, my hairs back to normal pretty much. Still working on repairing the damage but no blisters, no massive fall out, etc..I started using a vinegar rinse befor washing my hair and it's back to how it was...Soft, silky, thickening up..I do not advise anyone to use this. If you do, do so at the risk of your hair
