HAIRSPRAY 101 !

 

O.M.G! THEY CHANGED THE FORMULA….AGAIN!lady screaming

Question from Ashley in Ottawa, Ontario
“Hey beautiful! I need advice. Hairspray advice So I’ve been using the same hairspray for years, loved it. Held curl for three days even with my super fine, baby hair. Well, they changed the formula and not only does it no longer hold curl but it doesn’t even hold a dang tease. Could you please recommend a hairspray? I’ve tried three in the last month, none of which are working. HELP!“

Dear Curl Seeker,
I to am a lover of hairspray … heck it is my best friend!
Just saying H A I R S P R A Y gets me excited!
Firstly, if you want quality results – lasting viagra sans ordonnance hold and shine – don’t buy the cheap stuff, its like spraying  water! It will only sildenafil mylan prix cause more frizz and frustration!
Secondly, what type of hold or commitment do we want from this little bottled friend?
(to bad we cant purchase our perfect boyfriend this way!)

Here are a few of my favorites that I use personally and professionally in the salon followed by 3 pro tips:
  • Stuck Up Mega Hold Hairspray by White Sands (can be bought on ebay if not a hairstylist)    I use this for pro weddings and swear by it!
  • Got to 2b Glued by Schwarzkopf. Harder to work with as it gets very sticky on wet hair and sets asap! Inexpensive at Walmart / Shoppers Drug Mart
  • Shaper Hairspray Plus by Sebastian Professional – love this product for editorial work. It holds well and can be combed out for reshaping.
  • Stay Intense Hairspray by Big Sexy hair – my personal fav! I have curly frizzy hair, lots of it but fine strands. This products is humidity resistant, super long lasting hold and controls the  flyaways with a medium shine.

  1. If your trying to set curls, the trick is in in the foundation before curling your hair. Since you investing all that time and arm strength to stretch to the back of hair head, I professionally suggest a setting lotion or flexible hold gel.
  2. If your putting in rollers over night, like our grandma’s did, then yes, put in the gel or setting lotion when the hair is still very wet!
  3. If your using a hot tool to curl your hair, use your spray of choice and spray on  your section, comb through then curl up.
I hope this blog was useful and you find the product you need to help you look and feel your bouncy best.
