More Than Just a Leave-In Conditioner
The Protect & Detangle spray by Beauty Protector is a wonder product! The thing is, it was one of the products from one of last year’s Birchboxes. Incidentally, it’s also a Birchbox exclusive with waiting list. I rediscovered it when I was organising my beauty and hair care stuff after Christmas.
What does it claim to do?
This little bottle of mist proclaims to be not only a leave-in conditioner, but a detangler, that also reduces frizziness, protecting coloured hair and adding shine. Effectively the Protect & Detangle spray says that it will streamline your hair care and blow drying products down to this baby alone.
What does it actually do?
Well, like Ronseal, it does exactly what it says on the tin. I grabbed this one night after bathing the toddler, who has curly hair just like his Mummy. He also hates getting his hair combed or brushed, because it has a habit of getting all totty and tangled. I sprayed this into his damp hair and combed through and for the first time in about 6 months, I wasn’t punched in the face by a damp wriggling toddler.
Not only that, but it managed to help his dry scalp. Oh and the best bit, it smells delicious, like white chocolate, or vanilla. Yeah he actually asks to “skoosh” his hair now.
Don’t get me wrong, I use it too. It’s handy when I have to have shorter showers, or if I need a lighter conditioner that doesn’t weigh down my hair life a wet mop. The leave-in conditioner even protects against heat damage and UV rays.
Is it cruelty-free?
So this doesn’t contain any sulphates or paraben and it’s vegan. All Beauty Protector products are cruelty free, so no bunnies or gorillas were harmed in the making of this product. YAY!
How do you use it?
After washing hair, spray liberally from about 4 to 6 inches away and then comb through. Easy as pie.
Would you buy it?
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. I’ll be ordering this once it comes back in stock. It works brilliantly and it’ll be great to just chuck into the suitcase, it means less products to hulk about and less hassle for getting ready. Great for blow drying and of course skooshing.
