I have been looking for a drugstore heat protectant. After having a lot of success with Shiseido hair gel and none with Stephen Knoll heat protectants, I decided to try out the Lux spray.
This product comes in a plastic rose gold bottle with a nozzle. The nozzle is very small, so the mist it creates is very fine. I really appreciate this because it spreads the product very easily with minimal effort. There is 190 mL of product in the bottle.
My Thoughts on Lux Styling Sorceress Fix Water:
I have medium length, very very dry, curly hair with bangs that I straighten. I heat treat my hair about once or twice a week. This product looks exactly like water in the bottle. I comb my hair out after using this, just to distribute it all through my hair evenly. It is recommended to wait a minute or two after this step to straighten, but I am rarely that patient (being lazy and impatient is a terrible combination).
Its 3 main claims are – to protect hair from heat, to moisturise hair, and to protect hair from UV radiation. It does 2 out of the 3 claims well. While it does not cause frizz, weigh my hair down or contribute to shininess, it does help to lock moisture down a bit. It does not change the texture of my hair, but I do notice a difference when I straighten with and without this product.
That being said, I use it solely as heat protectant and use a separate cream or oil for providing moisture to my hair. It has a light rosy scent, but I find that it does not linger on my hair. I pretty much smell it only during application.
To get a hit hair product that makes me want to repurchase, that’s rare for me. Because it is so easy to use, I definitely recommend this to everyone and will be repurchasing.
Pros of Lux Styling Sorceress Fix Water:
- Very fine mist.
- Product spreads easily.
- Protects hair from heat.
- Does not cause frizz.
- Provides a little bit of moisture.
- Protects hair from UV radiation.
Cons of Lux Styling Sorceress Fix Water:
- Does not contribute a lot of moisture to dry hair – I need a separate cream or oil for that purpose.
