I’m not sure who this product is made for but it isn’t for me. For reference I have very long (upper thigh length) hair that isn’t quite straight but isn’t quite wavy either, somewhere in the middle. I guess this worked okay as a heat protectant, but I wouldn’t use it just for that. This didn’t make my hair smooth, or shiny at all. If anything I felt it made my hair dry, like it sucked any moisture out of it. It seemed to add some kind of weird texture, almost like it was a little bit sticky? Nonetheless I’m not happy with this product. I’ll be sticking with Aveda Smooth Infusion for smoothing and Redken Pillow Proof for a primer and heat protectant.
