I asked this on the hair board but thought it would be better here. I don't know what has happened to all the good hair sprays over the last few years??
I have thin hair and live in Fl where the humidity is great.
They have taklen all the ones I used to use to either hold my hair stiff or hold the curl in softly..off the market.
I found one but it really damages my hair and I can't help but pull half of it out when I brush through it at night. My old hairspray wasn't that harsh even though my hair was stiff. I wear my hair up due to the heat so I need something to hold but not damage.
Does anyone have any good hair sprays they love now? thanks
I use Herbal Essences Body Envy (in the orange can) hair spray for when I want flexible hold! It smells great and my hair doesn't get scrunchy from it, and no white flakes like some hairsprays if you brush through it. It's great for keeping my flat ironed hair looking good through the humidity and keeps the volume at the roots (my hair is pretty thick and is long, so it can get weighed down easily). It's my favorite! It's also cheap!
I have straight, thin hair so when I need it to hold a style, I use got2be volume hairspray (in the red can). Aussie is ok too but I found that it dries out my hair. If you can find Vavoom! hairspray that is one of the best as well
The problem is that all the hairsprays have been reformulated due to some EPA guidelines or some sort of reason. So all that used to be really good aren't good anymore. I really like Vavoom but I haven't tried it since all the hairsprays were reformulated. Sally's sells a Volumax hairspray that's pretty good. That Tresseme one mentioned above is pretty decent. They sell one at Walmart in a big white can that says "professional" across the can..they have two versions...the one that's comparable to Vavoom is the best one. That is my favorite...I always go back to it.
My posts are just my opinion only and are not of a professional nature.
You need one that has a load of vitamins in.. These vitamins will coat the hair and prevent damage. Also Protein is essential for repairing and protecting the hair, some products have this in... The best ones are the Toni and Guy range or the Fructis Bamboo ones...
Hope this helps
Kenra Volume Spray 25 is the best I've ever tried! I too have fine hair and nothing has ever worked for me like this does. It has won the Stylist Choice award for best hair spray for years......it's about $10 but it lasts a long, long time. No need to keep re-applying, leaves hair soft and flexible with lots of volume and is great for humidity.
