I received a small sample of this product, I applied it to dry hair as I am after sun protection, it removed 60% of my freeze which is good. I am not sure on the uv protection, will try on a beach day to check if it helps.
I decided to invest in a top quality Kerastase heat protectant as my hairs health was declining. A little goes a long way and it protects my damaged strands for further deteriorating from heat styling. It is expensive but as expected it delivers excellent results. 10/10!
