Yes! It can be used for this reason. It adds shine and should be applied to towel dry hair.

Yes I would put this product all over my hair that is color treated or not color treated hair for the UVA/UVB portion and the shine that it gives after using blow dryer and your heat tools. Hopes this helps answer your question.

yup. I wouldn't put it on your roots though because you need your scalp to breathe but overall its organic and its pretty awesome with UV protection so if you have color treated hair and want to stay out during the summer heat and don't want your hair to fry i'd put some on the top too.

I'd say fruity/sweet. But that's based on it being in the bottle. I use it sparingly, and never notice the scent on my hair. Nice product. One of the few oils that doesn't weigh down my hair.

fruity. not overpowering. it smells like melon. this brand is pretty good with using more organic items like bamboo, melon, and you definitely smell a hint of lemon nothing made up or chemical. I use this a lot during the summer.

I found it to help keep my color from fading in the sun on those outdoor summer days but I don't believe it offers much protection from chlorine.

Question
Is it also good to use before using a curler or hair straightener?
I like to style my hair but unfortunately the heat is really damaging. Is this product only for shine? Or is it also a good heat protectant? Thanks!

I don't believe it offers any heat protection. It really enhances shine and protects color treated hair from UV fading.
