My favourite hairspray, not too expensive and comes in a big can. Gives great lasting hold without being too sticky or stiff and is easy to brush out. Sometimes a lot can shoot out when you press, so be sure not to hold it too close to your hair when you spray it. The smell isn't that great, but It doesn't seem to linger too long. I will keep buying since it works great for me! :)
This stiff sucks, gives no volume and hair goes flat :/ don't waste your dinero!
For a hairspray to add volume in my opinion it must be rather fine lest it weigh down my hair which = flat on me. In that regard this hairspray is too heavy, too wet, and too crunchy. My hair is fine but I've got a ton of it. If you concentrate the spray at the roots or underside of hair, you can achieve some volume because this spray will provide some structure (think scaffolding for hair) for the hair above it to basically rest upon.
So for me it doesn't work the way I'd hoped and forget anyone running their fingers through your hair lol
It holds updo's well, though again hair becomes quite hard. I can't for ex spray this on a pony tail I want to retain some bounce and volume in, it just looks stiff and unnatural.
But if you've read any other reviews of mine you know I'm a big believer in lemons being turned into lemonade, at least with beauty products which can be so costly.
To that end I've found a way to use this and where it performs best for me. So well in fact I'd buy it again just for the following use: best for keeping brows in place!
Sure you can use any ol' hairspray on a brow brush but I've tried so many and this does what I want brow-wise! Mine are thick and dark but often unruly. I've tried many brow gels, hair gels and hair spray. Most sprays are too wet and can drip into the eye even when applied w/a brow brush or spoolie type applicator. I trust you've got the good sense to come in outta the rain and similarly won't spray hair spray around your eye area!
Just lightly mist your brush and then brush brows into place. This does not make my brow hairs clump together, nor leave them looking stiff or flaky with spray residue.
Instead I've got beautiful brows that have a slight sheen, and remain in place all the live long day.
Only one hairspray of at least 30+ I've tried over the years, worked this well on my brows and its long since been discontinued. After I mist my face with water or setting spray when my makeup is done, I brush my brows into place using this, in front of the bathroom mirror as I find standing back to get an overall view gives me the best results. A day or so I skipped this and I really missed how my brows looked. They honestly lacked volume. Used just on my brows I will likely not have to update for another year so its economical for me.
As far as hair goes, when I wear it down and curly (its naturally that way), this is pretty good for a layer of structure. Am I still looking for a gossimer fine mist that sprays in little droplets like fairy dust to invisibally hold my hair in place? You betcha!
My holy grail hairspray. I have been using this since it came out and have never strayed (except once, to try a sample of Ellnet, which I hated). This is the epitome of a perfect hairspray in my book. It is fairly light weight (although it does give hold that you can feel, which I like; "flexible hold" has no place in my hair :D), and best of all, the smell doesn't give me a migraine (unlike pretty much every other hairspray I've tried). I would be lost without this. It holds curls, teasing, everything. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Disappointing. Caused my hair to be sticky with some build-up, while only holding style/volume moderately well. I much prefer the Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Hairspray and Nioxin Volumizing Reflectives to this.
EXCELLENT FOR FINE HAIR!!! Cheep. Super hold. Volume all day. This is a wonderful product. I like it much better than Pureology's hairspray which I have used for years. And much better than Big Sexy Hair's hairspray. A+
Made my hair crunchy and smelling like chemicals. I much rather prefer Big n Sexy hairspray to this. It also doesn't add that much volume, it goes away quick. I don't think I will purchase this again. While Big n Sexy is more expensive but worth it.
This is a GREAT hairspray. My hair is fine and thin, but I bleach and platinum tone the h*ll out of it....to give it body. I wear it spiky and messy (think Billy Idol), LOL. This hairspray really holds. It doesn't dry lightning fast, but once it dries, the hold and shine last ALL day. It does make my hair feel a little dry and crunchy...but that's what I LOVE about it. My wild "hair do" lasts all day. It rinses and washes out easily. The smell, to me, is fine. It is not great, but does not clash with my fragrance, and honestly I do not even smell it during the day. I have honestly tried dozens of hairsprays, some costing almost $30, and this works as well, or better. A great, relatively cheap find. Thanks John Frieda!!
Keeps volume all day
Keeps hair glossy looking
Can be a bit heavy- be sure to spray 12in away from head
This hair spray has amazing hold and works perfectly for my fine, soft hair. I have purchased every type of hair spray I can find and I am always looking for one that can hold my hair on a rainy day. I have finally found one that I spray on in the morning and, even if it is a pouring, rainy day, I come home at the end of a day and my hair is exactly as it was when I left in the morning. You do have to spray lightly and make sure you are not spraying too close to your hair. I find it is a bit sticky but the hold is worth it to me. It really is an amazing product and a little bit goes a long way.
