Hit or Miss: Ion Heat Protection Spray

On a recommendation from some folks on YouTube, I picked up the Ion Straightening Solutions Heat Protection Spray in the hopes that it would help reduce frizz and protect my hair from extreme heat from curling irons and straightening irons.

I have very fine, thin, blonde hair, and this product just does NOT work for me.  I spray it lightly on my hair, avoiding roots, and it just sucks.  First off, it makes my hair feel (and look) greasy, and secondly, it doesn't actually help my hair hold style from heat.  I kept expecting to see steam arise from my iron (from the product), and I never do.  It is basically a silicone/oil type mess that just weighs down my hair and doesn't dry or evaporate.

Have any of you used this?  What were your experiences?  Am I just doing it wrong?
