Default Headlight restore advice

I was thinking about trying out restoring my headlights with toothpaste. Ive been looking around on the site and Ive seen people suggest this multiple times. I have also heard that this and using sandpaper on your headlights will need to be sealed or the haziness will come back very quickly. I have noticed that some restoration kits have sealers as like the last step of the kit. Usually like a spray or some compound your rub on. Do you think that using the toothpaste trick and using a sealing compound from a standard restoration kit right after would be an effective way to remove haziness and would also protect it from coming back not as quickly? Let me know guys!!!

Toothpaste does work ok for a light touch up. You will notice a difference and depending how much work you put in, outcome will be mild to mod. Touch up instead of restore is a better wording with toothpaste. You can use some rainX as a quick seal with the toothpaste. If u want restore buy a good kit and spend some time or take it to the detail shop. My guys charge $40 and I don't break a sweat.

I used the 3M kit & came out great. Didn't want to take the chance of redoing it again using the toothpaste.
