I bought this heat protecting spray about a week ago, hoping this would be a dupe of the Tressemé spray which I bought and loved in Canada. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take that back with me to Switzerland because my suitcase was too full, but the design and appearance of this Syoss spray had me hoping it would work instead. Similarly as the Tressemé, this one can be purchased at drugstores and is inexpensive, and has the same convenient spray head.
Oh how wrong I was! As soon as I sprayed it the first time, the smell of alcohol overwhelmed me. I hadn't bothered to read the ingredients, but discovered that indeed the second ingredient is alcohol! What the hell?! How on earth is that supposed to protect your hair from heat damage? If I wanted to dry my hair out, I'd just spray alcohol on it! This does absolutely nothing like the Tresemmé spray, the latter of which is very nice and works like a leave-in conditioner. This is just awful!! My hair felt dry and crunchy after using this. Alcohol in a product that is supposed to protect your hair is just wrong. Schwarzkopf, hang your head in shame.
Another product that will be dumped down the drain. It wasn't expensive, but still, what a waste of money. The bottle is convenient though so I might just make my own leave-in spray using some of my L'Oreal Professionel conditioner diluted with water.
