I use Elnett for volumizing, smoothing, and general style holding-- it's a great all purpose hair spray. A light application gives you good, lasting hold without looking frozen (you'll still retain some movement). Put it on heavily and you'll have an indestructible style. Either way the micro fine spray keeps hair from looking lacquered and crunchy. Normally I use it for smoothing hair/killing flyaways and giving my hair some soft volume. What I really like about this is that it keeps my hair touchable looking. You can brush it out easily and it doesn't flake or get gross.. makes restyling very easy.
The smell however can be a problem. It's a very retro scent that people either find charmingly old fashioned or really nasty. I'm not a fan, but since it doesn't last long, I don't really mind. Over all this is a terrific hairspray and totally worthy of a 5.
L'Oreal Elnett is my all time favorite. I keep coming back after trying everything else, even though it's pricey. My hair is naturally wavy & frizzy.Love the microfine spray that doesn't leave hair looking sectioned by spray. It brushes through easily & retains shape. When travelling, could skip several days washing, just re-styling with brush, blowdryer & spray. It doesn't build up when you brush it. Prefer unscented, but perfume doesn't last long.Does well in high humidity/rain, especially if not brushed over. Adds some needed texture to my hair that can be too soft, and never leaves a sticky feel. Great stuff!
I really want to love this hairspray but to be honest, I am starting to think it gets a lot of press since it's a 'classic' - kind of like a certain green and pink mascara tube we all know. Let's talk about the thing that everyone else hates. The smell. Yes, it's weird and chemically and grandma's perfume-like. What's with that? The smell doesn't even dissipate that quickly, either. In addition, I spray this stuff all over, I smell funny - and then there's no hold. It just gives this heavy, kind of dirty feeling texture to my mop. In addition, I notice it makes my hair become greasier - quicker. I'm a redhead so I try to wash as little as humanly possible (within reason!) since I don't want my hair to fade. I wear this stuff, my hair's greasy at the root the next day. Real bummer here, I like how elegant the gold can appears.
The smell of this was so bad and overwhelming, like old lady perfume. I tried it a few times and just couldn't use it because of the smell.
I really loved this spray, it makes my hair soft and shiny. I have fine hair, so product tends to weight it down and make it look greasy. I have really sprayed this on thick for up-dos and it still does not get "crunchy." It might not be enough hold for someone with thicker or more textured hair, but for me it was just right. It does have a scent, but I found that the scent fades away by the time I walk out the door. Personally, I didn't mind the scent.
I gave up wearing hairspray years ago, I just could not stand the horrible crunchy or worse sticky feeling and the flaking I would see the next day.
My nephew is a stylist and gave me a freebie a couple of weeks ago. I was horrified when he sprayed a ton of this stuff when he was done.
But...My hair looked fabulous for 3 days!!!
No flaking, grimey dirty feeling!! It was shiny and healthy feeling, not dried out at all.
I admit that I don't use a lot of hairspray due to the horrible results I have had in the past but if you add into this review that my nephew is a stylist and won't use anything else it might count for a bit more.
I only have one Con, it has a strong smell. It is not a bad smell but it is definitely worth mentioning.
I hardly ever review products, unless I feel strongly about them.
Package: Nice, great spray nozzle
Price: Decent, a little on the expensive side
The smell is not that great, and the "super fine mist" sprays nicely, but does nothing for the hair. I have thick, full, coarse hair, and it normally does what I want, but this spray did nothing for it. Cheap hairsprays have kept my hair in better place than this spray.
There was so much hype about this product all over YouTube, I wanted to love it, but I really, really don't! I recommend getting a small travel can to test it out if you really want to try the product.
Im always on the search for great products, and let me tell you this is one. ! I mean, the only bad thing I can say is that it doesnt hold for too long, but it does what its suppost to do and it doesnt leave ur hair grasy or anything, it smells good and you can brush it and still look good if u dint like what u did.
I bought this on a trip after I forgot to pack my hairspray. I normally use Big Sexy Hair in the red can, couldnt find it at the drug store so I bought this. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and it just does *not* hold my hair. I live in Florida and there is a ton of humidity this time of year (July). My hair is baby fine. I use hot rollers for volume and then spray upside down, then flip. 15 mins after using this spray my hair is flat as a pancake! I gave it a 2 because yes, you can comb thru it as advertised. I would say this is for someone who wants a minimum amount of hold. It is also expensive for drug store spray. I paid $12.99 and that was a sale price.
This is a GREAT hairspray! I got the travel size, now I will buy the big one, the unscented one. I don`t care too much for this classic hairspray smell, that is why. Other than that, it is really great! I use it every day after I style my bangs, and the wonder of this is that it holds it all day 100% in place, but no hard look or feel. You know, I was used to the strong hold hairsprays that yes, hold strong, but you can see it sitting in your hair, ugghhh! This Elnett has a micro diffuser and it sprays a mist on your hair that is INVISIBLE but still hold strong! Also, it never comes out too strong like others and ruin your bangs. Simply the best!!! Super hold but you can`t see it, and it disappeares when you brush it out, and doesn`t leave a produt build up uglyness. Love it!!! I will buy this forever, don`t mind the extra couple bucks. :-)))
