7 Awesome Hair Sprays to Try ...

By Tracy

You’re in the drugstore walking down the hair spray row and you see can after can of what appear to be awesome hair sprays, but you just can’t decide which to buy. Let me help you. With the exception of L’Oreal, you probably won’t find another of these hair products on a shelf in that row. Most of them will be available at your favorite salon, or you can find them at Ulta or Sephora. Most of them are more expensive than you might currently pay for your awesome hair sprays. But let’s face it, if you were all that happy with your bargain spray, you wouldn’t be reading this article. Now, let’s see if we can find something that will give you the results you’re really after.

1 L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin

L’Oreal Paris Elnett SatinL’Oreal had this bright idea in 1960 to create a hair spray that you can effortlessly brush out. Today, and for many years, Elnett Satin is the preeminent red carpet event hair spray of the stars. Of all the awesome hair sprays available, leading hair stylists will reach for Elnett again and again. This is the hair spray used on models and celebrities, on photo shoots. You deserve it.

2 Sebastian Shaper

Sebastian ShaperI remember going into a Trade Secret many years ago and finding Sebastian Shaper on sale for $4 a can. I thought I had won the hair spray lottery! I love that I can push a lock of hair to the side and spray it and it will stay there, but then if I change my mind I can brush it out. I love everything about this except for two things: the nozzle has a tendency to clog and the scent is pretty awful. I remove the nozzle and rinse it out and the scent dissipates eventually. It doesn’t make your hair smell unpleasant, and you can create great shapes.

7 Ouidad Playcurl

Ouidad PlaycurlWho knows curly hair better than Ouidad? Playcurl is a lightweight gel that won’t weigh down your lovely curls. Rather, it will accentuate the curl pattern without adding crunchiness or stickiness, something too many curl sprays tend to do. This spray is for curly hair that moves, not '80s curly mall hair.

Once you get used to a hair spray, it’s hard to break away. But even if you’re happy with the results you’re currently achieving, it might be fun to experiment with something else. That's especially true when that something else is a best-selling product that you might just be missing out on, due to your product loyalty. Are there any hair sprays here that intrigue you enough to give them a try?
