I saw this on Dominique Sachse's you tube tutorials on hair. She uses this, and I wanted volume and hold but the ability to comb it out. This does all that and more.

I bought a travel size can of it, for 8$ Canadian at Chatters Beauty supply and salons which is a western Canadian chain and the full size is about 29$. I used up the travel size, and I am happy to say this stuff is worth it.

I've been using Dove hairspray, and Elnett original and unscented. I've not been as happy till this.

It adds a light bit of shine as well, and used as Dominique shows in light puffs while holding the hair the way you want, isn't going to be a helmet of stiff rigid hairdo from the past. I also picked up a tip Dominique showed where she sprays upward from below the hair you want to set into some volume. From above (yes I tried it out to compare and she is right) the hair will deflate and get a harder hold that won't move but looks stiff.

So to get the most out of this, light single puffs from BELOW up INTO the hair as you push it into place.

Now the scent. To me it's a pleasant floral in the tuberose/jasmine/orange blossom family and I quite like it. It blends nicely with the Chanel #5 that I like, ditto the Bulgari Pour Femme. But it may fight with light citrusy scents or sharp green perfumes where floral might clash a bit so be forewarned.

Actually I really suggest buying this in the travel size to try it first. I ripped thru that can and was on a long trip so I had to fall back on Elnett which made me realize how much nicer the Kenra is, and oddly enough how much gentler on my hair which started to really dry out again with the Elnett.

An expensive hair spray that did not work for me at all. Has a strong scent that I did not like. This hair spray is supposed to be super hold. My hair went completely flat in less than an hour. I have never had a hair spray do that before. I get better results from drugstore hair sprays such as Aqua Net maximum hold and Pantene Anti humidity hair spray. Effective higher end hair sprays such as Matrix Style Fixer and Matrix Biolage Freeze Fix work well also.

I initially bought this in a travel size. The thing I liked about it most at that time is now what I like least--the smell. It is a VERY potent floral (orchids, maybe?) I also don't like the unnatural, frozen look it gives my hair. Forget brushing this out if you decide you don't like the way it looks, unless you don't mind losing some hair.

I prefer the Kenra Platinum 26 hairspray for strong hold & volume over the helmet head this 25 hairspray gives.

It's the best hairspray I've used. It's not a freezing spray or something super light but for something in the middle of the road, this is it

I'm definitely in the minority here. I initially liked this hairspray because of the hold it gave, nothing will move if you spray this baby on, even lightly. But I think that's the problem, it holds so well that your hair is frozen in place, and even if you try to brush it out, it gets stuck and tangles up with other hair. I hate to say Aquanet but if you want frozen stiff hair, by all means. I think it would be great for prom or an updo, but for regular hair, pass. I want a beautiful touchable hold, where I can pass my fingers through and not get stuck. Does that exist? Who knows, I've got my eye on the TIGI massive shine hairspray, hopefully that will do the trick.

I was finding that drugstore hairspray was leaving too much buildup, so I've been using salon spray for about a year now. Hairspray is my hair product of choice, maybe it's a remnant of big 80's hair in high school, but it's all I use, I love it, I've tried them all. I went to the salon to get another can of the ISO spray I was using, but they were temporarily out, so they suggested this Kenra one. When I first used it, I thought the smell was overpowering and gross, but it held pretty well. Now, a month later, I love the smell and love the product. My favorite thing to do, it's to lightly spray my hair and scrunch it. Totally 80's, right? But with previous products, my hair still looked crunchy and stringy like after scrunching, but the Kenra spray leaves my hair actually looking like I properly curled it or something. Hard to explain, but I absolutely love it and will continue buying it for that reason. I have very fine hair and this makes it look so much fuller! Thanks Kenra!

This is "eh". The spray nozzle is constantly clogged and I get hairspray everywhere (and this stuff is STICKY). It has a decent hold but makes my hair look like a helmet if I am wearing it down. It is good if you are going for a full ponytail and want to back comb and get some volume at the roots.

DUPE ALERT: L'Oréal Boost It High Lift Creation Spray

Great volume, scent, and texture. I am knocking a point off because it's overpriced. $12 would be a reasonable price point.

If I spray this at the roots it creates a tangle, like teasing it. If I spray it after my hair is styled, it sets it.

This is my favourite hairspray - I have been using it for years. Sometimes I stray and use another brand, then I wonder why I did as none compare to this. It holds my style very well (long, medium thick, somewhat wavy, with long layers) and is never tacky or sticky. I have no problem combing my hair out with this in it at the end of the day. I get many compliments on how my hair holds its style and I have to give credit to Kenra for this hairspray and the volume mousse (17) that I use. Using both products does not weigh my hair down, make it sticky or tacky, or create too much build up (I use clarifying shampoo probably once a month, sometimes less like whenever I think of it which isn't that often to be honest). I have cans of this all over the place...in my master bathroom, my downstairs bathroom, my tote bag, my office, even one in my vehicle. Many times I can find this in packages with full size shampoo and conditioner and with a little travel size hairspray at Chatters and I buy a couple at a time since I also use Kenra's shampoo and conditioner. It's a great savings! I also often find it in the bonus size, especially the breast cancer version in the pink can, and I stock up when I come across those too. I'll keep using this as long as they keep making it!
