Leaks head seal  blown head gasket
repair followed instructions
completely. Test drove it and it ran
great.  It sounded good,  no smoke,
no over heating,  nothing that I could
notice. John asset sales actor
repairing this it's real perfectly and
never overheated.
Next morning tried to start the car and
it will not start. It turns over and acts
like it is trying but goes not.
What could be causing this and what
do I need to be doing to fix it ?

Such products are a band aid at best, not an actual repair. Without more to go on I have no idea why your car won't start. I would check the engine compression.
