Rated 5 out of 5 by JoniE Very Affective!
I think this product is fantastic! I found that I have to use this product a little differently than how they suggest. I usually let my hair air dry and then flat iron. If I spray this product on just before I flat iron, my hair will be slightly wet. What I do is when my hair is almost dry I spray this product on my hair and comb it through to grab onto as many strands of hair as possible and let my hair finish drying...it takes only a couple of seconds. When my hair is completely dry--which is the same amount of time that it normally takes, I flat iron my hair without frying it. I know this because the steam (if any is present) is on the flat iron and not my hair. If I decide to blow dry my hair Alterna makes a product that you can use on wet hair to protect it against blow drying, which is called "Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist". You can't tell by the name that it protects against blow drying but if you go to Alterna's website and read the COMPLETE description (which QVC doesn't have) of the product you'll read: This lightweight, instantly absorbing mist can be used as a treatment or a style primer to eliminate frizz, shield hair from heat styling tools, enhance shine and protect color while boosting your hair's health. This product has all 5 star reviews.
Rated 4 out of 5 by tx syd Best for thin/fine straight hair
I love alterna products. I have thin/fine hair. most products weigh my strands down and leave them sticky. this iron spray doesn't. this is how it works for me: I spray it all over my hair ( flip it over and spray) then comb it straight then use my curling iron or rollers. it is best to let the curl cool for it to work properly. This is the best item I have found for my hair. Try their hairspray too, vastly superior to most sprays out there. not sticky and holds.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Blndebim Worked for me......
I feel just the opposite of the previous reviewer.....I think it works great with a flat iron for getting that 'straight look"......of course everyone's hair is different.....texture, curly, naturally straight, etc......so I realize that would come into play when using a product like this.....it's not going to work the same for everyone. It does have a nice clean scent and left my hair feeling soft and silky, though! I wouldn't completely rule it out if you are looking for protection for your hair when using a flat iron......you can always return it if it doesn't work out for you! :)
