I'm old. My hair is old. It's super thin and very, very frizzy. I wear it long to add weight and add lots of product to try to settle it down. If I wore my hair in its natural state in public, someone would probably call the hair police. It's that bad.

FOR YEARS I had been blow drying my hair straight with a big round brush. It's worked in the past, but lately this way of styling has left my hair completely fried. It just can't take it anymore. I've used numerous expensive brands of heat protection products and none have worked… until I tried this one. After doing some research on Tresemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Protective Spray and reading all the great reviews, I had to try it, and I must say it's the only product that has worked, and worked extremely well. It's awesome!!! It has changed not only the way my hair looks and feels, it's saving me a tremendous amount of time and money trying to tame it.

I know this sounds like a commercial, but I assure you it is not. I've never even written a review before, but I sure do read 'em! I'm especially interested to know the styling techniques of others. If you're reading this and have hair like mine (you poor thing), I'll tell you what is working for me: I wash my hair in the evening and let it dry naturally. In the morning, I spray a copious amount of Tresemme on my hair, to the point where it's sufficiently damp, but not soaking wet. I blow it dry without the use of the big round brush, then use a curling iron to straighten. (I'm not a big fan of the flat irons.) I add a small amount of gel when I'm done to add extra shine.

It's taken me a very long time to figure out the best way to deal with hair like mine. If this even helps one person out there, I'm glad I took the time to write this. Perhaps this will help you save a lot of time and a lot of money. I love this product!!!

I actually ran out of the kind of straightening spray that I typically use because it is soooooooooooo difficult to find. So I decided to go with this one for the time being.

The original spray I used was alcohol based, so it really didn't feel like anything was there at all (probably because of evaporation) but I never used a straightener without it, so I don't know what my hair is like WITHOUT a protecting spray.

This one was quite nice. Not bad. But not phenomenal. But let me tell you, I'm a girl that washes her hair every OTHER day. So I can't be having any gunk in it on the first day. And this product, though it made my hair crazy soft, felt greasy and was a bit heavy. Probably because I was used to the first one I'd tried.

It doesn't really make hair greasy "looking", but I can definitely feel it, and the 2nd day look is kind of a bit too grungy for my tastes.

The smell is REALLY strong. If you can't handle strong fruity/sweet smells, I do not recommend you trying this, because if you're using a protecting spray, you'll be using it EVERYDAY about. It's really pungeant, and I eventually got used to it, but the smell (similar to a sweet fake apple scent) didn't really match my personality.

Though, the grease and the weight is BEARABLE. And it was kind of funny when my guy friends started petting my hair and saying it was crazy soft... because I have Asian hair, where crazy soft hair doesn't really come with the package.

I couldn't tell if it actually PROTECTED my hair after straightening it. You tell me. :]

The easiest way to find out if you actually LIKE the product is to try it. Hey! If you don't like it, let a friend have it. Not like you splurged for it.

    Comments about TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Protective Spray, 8 fl oz:

    I usually have zero complaints about Tresemmes products; but this dispenser it the WORST. Not only is it weak, it is awkward to use with such a huge bottle. After one use I had to transfer half to a regular spray bottle since the one it came with stopped working. However, as someone whose hair has been destroyed by styling, this truly made a difference in a few uses. GREAT product and GREAT price, just design a new bottle please!

      Comments about TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Protective Spray, 8 fl oz:

      I finally ran out of my first bottle that lasted me nearly a year! I used it 2-3 times a week for nearly a year. I purchased another one threw drugstore which is were I got my fist one. They did remodel the latch on the bottle which is lovely because the other one was annoying lol. I have 4c afro kinky hair and i apply this before I blow dry my hair and it works lovely. A little goes a long way. It leaves my hair light and softer not to mention protected. I do believe it does protect my hair because after I blow dry I use a flat iron with another heat styling product and I've never had a problem with crazy split ends or dried dull hair. I haven't tried any other heat style product and I don't plan to :-) I'm pretty happy with what I have plus the price is right.

        Best hair protecant that is out there for a decent price. I have tried so many hair thermals and was not impressed by any. I finally gave in and bought Treseme. I'm so happy I did. Just sad I haven't bought it in the past.

          Comments about TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Protective Spray, 8 fl oz:

          I don't know if I'm just not good at this stuff but I like to blow dry my hair and then put the product on just before I curl it. It makes my hair really damp which sucks because then I have to wait a little while. Maybe the nozzle sprays too much at once. Wish it had more of a mist. Whatever, I mean, it was inexpensive so I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised. I don't know if it's doing anything because it's just supposed to be protecting my hair from heat damage. I feel like I only have two options. Spray it on before I blow dry or before I curl. I fear that the curling would cause the most damage so I spray it on before I curl but then my hair is wet again. I dunno. It might just be me.

            - Easy to use (personally use it after shower on damp hair before blow drying)
            - Lightweight and non-greasy formula (always appreciated)
            - Noticeable protection (hair is less dry and frizzy after blow drying, but effect could be stronger)

              This product works great! I use it for straightening and curling my hair. I spray it onto dry hair, brush it through, and then style! It leaves my hair feeling soooo smooth and soft. However, I only gave it four stars out of five because it didn't do much for my hair when I used it before blowdrying. I was hoping it would help smooth my hair enough so I wouldn't have to straighten it, but it doesn't promise to do that, so I still think it's great!

                Comments about TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Protective Spray, 8 fl oz:

                This is the best thermal spray you can get at the drugstore! I love products that tame frizz, so if you want a heat protective spray that works and doesn't get greasy, this is it. I have fine/normal long hair that is very prone to frizz, emphasis on frizz. I have been through a lot with my hair and this is just perfect. You can literally notice the difference after you are done using it, your hair has a nicer texture to it. If you spray it in your hair before using heat (so it has time to absorb into your hair and dry), then you will have better results. I tend to use a straightener on damp hair because I spray this on right before I use heat, so I noticed the difference. If you want the best results give it some time to dry before you use heat. Low budget shoppers that want a product that actually works - this is for you!

                  The nozzle was problematic - wound up emptying contents into a different container. Was hoping for a less frizzy/fried look but not seeing a big diff. Hair does look shinier when it finally straightens out.
