I don't know what this magical unicorn rainbow spray is made of or how it works, but it is the best hairspray that I ever used in my lifetime. My biggest issue with hairspray is buildup! I don't care how good it is at holding, if I see white residue flakes, it gets tossed in the trash. My second problem with hairsprays is texture. I want hold and volume but I don't want a helmet on my head. I want natural flow and movement with my hair. Thirdly, it must hold and give volume to my very heavy thick long hair. Even though my hair is thick, it is like a deadweight. Even with long layers cut into it, my hair is still heay. Lastly, IT MUST NOT STINK! I watch Nick Chavez use this hairspray on QVC and I was amazed at the results the models were getting. So, I decided to pick up a bottle at Ulta. Spray retails at $19.00(US) and used an Ulta coupon so I only paid $14. About Amazon Hair Body Building Spray: You can literally stand in front of the mirror and spray this all day long and it never gets buildup or sticky. You can really brush the hell out of this and you won't get flakes or snags with your brush. The scent is also sophisticated and clean..not floral or fruity at all. Lastly, it gives me such healthy looking hair that has natural looking volume. This hairspray is pricey but I feel it is worth every cent. I would even be willing to pay $30! This is simply my HG spray and I would recommend it to anyone.
Okay the whole story in a nutshell:
I was mesmerized by Nick's performance on QVC. Mainly the plump n thick thickening spray which this is NOT. I had that on my wishlist along with the plump n thick shampoo and conditioning creme. I had a wedding to go and because his shipping takes a while, there would be no way I would get my products in time. I ran to Ulta, couldn't find the plump n thick hairspray so I got this amazon building instead. And I read the description, the more you use yada yada.
Here's the thing, I was in charge of doing my Aunt's & my moms hair and makeup for the wedding. I was really siked for this stuff because after all the shows I watched on QVC, they would definatley look like the models, especially how he works the hair and combs his fingers through, they shake it out, they look amazing.
Uh no. I was mortified when I finished styling my moms hair, started spraying all over, trying to work the hair, IT STUCK TO ITSELF. Like someone spilled soda on her hair or something. Gross. I felt so bad. Same thing for my Aunt's hair. I was like what the F? So no it probably doesn't work like plump n thick and I know its a completley different product, but I don't know it just isn't what I thought. Maybe I got a knock off? Fake? Oh well. I will try plump n thick though.
Absolute holy grail for my blonde, kinda thick, easly tangled wavy hair! It gives great curl hold and definition, does not weigh hair down, and leave it shiny and combable. It doesn't seem to ever build up on the hair either. I use it on towel dried hair to scrunch my curls while I diffuse dry. Can't live without it, I keep a stockpile, I fear the day its discontinued!
I LOVE this stuff. Better than any spray gel I've ever used. I have verrry fine, fragile, color treated long hair. It's very tough to find something to put body into it to help hold my morning styling. This really does create body and bounce and texture in my hair--and the effect lasts almost the whole work day. You have to use it liberally, but it does not flake or build up. In fact, you can really go crazy spraying it into your hair without fear of build up. I spray it into my roots and throughout my hair--it works great. It's not a hairspray...but an aerosol spray gel. It's a little on the spendy side, but I have yet to find a product that does what this does. Very impressive stuff. I follow with Pantene Texturizing Hairspray if I want to totally lock the style down so it doesn't move.
