Putting aside the "anti-aging" BS (please, do they think we're that stupid?!) this is a great hairspray. It has great hold while still being flexible on my long, curly hair. I got a free travel-size of this at ULTA, however I will never purchase a full size can, because it is EXPENSIVE! On sale- maybe. But otherwise, I just couldn't justify paying that much for a hairspray when there are so many good, reasonably priced sprays out there (like Nexxus' Frizz Defy and Comb Thru). If I win the lottery, I may splurge on this once in a while, though. ;-)
The Working Hairspray, once applied after blow-drying, is pretty terrific stuff. It sprays well in a mist. It holds light to medium hold, which I think is acceptable. Also, it seems to hide the fly-aways. It leaves your hair soft, not crunchy, as well as brushable. It is a fine product, in my view, because as you work with your hair with this, it prevents breakage. That, in itself, is a thumbs up.
When directed at the roots, it does the job, especially after teasing for some little volume. Because of the good ingredients, I'm switching back and forth between this and Sebastian "Shaper." I bought the small travel size and when exhausted, I will purchase the full-size hairspray. :)
I purchased this after my my stylist used it for my last hair treatment. Unlike many hairsprays I've tried which have a crunch and dull feel to them, this gave gave my hair a very flexible, light hold, leaving it soft, with just the right amount of shine. It makes my hair look so vibrant! It also safeguards chemically-treated hair and "targets the aging process"? Really? For the price it better revive my locks! I think I paid about $20 for it, but I see that it can go for $26. I'm looking for alternatives because of the price but I love everything about this hairspray! Especially the lovely clean scent. Maybe you can find something in the ingredients that helps with the aging process?
Must be the caviar extract, soy or polypeptides?

This is the ONLY hairspray I will ever use. Very light-weight.
UPDATE: they must have changed the formula because the green can seems different. I'm not going to repurchase.
A great non- sticky hold spray that provides shine and doesn't dry out the hair.
I tried this product along with the Alterna Restoring Hair Shampoo and Conditioner because my 6+ year hair salon switched from Nioxin to this stuff instead. The only redeeming product I found in the line was the Alterna Hard Hold Styling gel. I thought the hairspray smelled awful, left my hair overly shiny, and flaked something horrible in my color-treated hair and didn't wash out completely unless I used their weekly stripping shampoo. What a racket!!! During the summer months I also found that this hairspray tended to get tacky in the high humidity. Yuck! Will not use anything else in this line again!
This product claims to replace the omega-3 fatty acids that our hair loses as we age. That's definitely news to me, but despite all the scientific nonsense on the back of the can, I decided to give this a shot anyway. This provides a flexible hold, and while it really provides a very minimal hold, it gives hair shine and smooths the frizzies without that sticky, stiff "hairspray" feel. I don't mind the scent either. Would probably re-purchase.
