The hairspray you need if you hate hairspray
I think we all have some degree of Aqua Net PTSD. I can still conjure up the so-strong-it-burns-your-nostrils smell, and who could forget the rock-hard helmet-like finish it would leave behind? And don’t even get me started on trying to brush it out (and the flaking that would inevitably ensue). This experience put me off hairspray for a looooong time, and only recently have I begun to embrace the benefits of hairspray—albeit in the form of lightweight, flexible hold. Another major factor that got me to rejoin Team Hairspray is Sexy Hair’s Healthy Sexy Hair Pure Addiction Hairspray, and here’s why…
First and foremost, this superlight mist provides hold and shine you can actually see—but if you didn’t have a short-term memory and couldn’t remember you used it, you wouldn’t know it was there. The alcohol-free formula means you get a pleasant, grapefruit-y olfactory experience instead of being overwhelmed with a nose-hair-singeing chemical smell, and believe it or not, your hair actually feels soft instead of crispy—even after a heavy-handed spritz. It also dries in a flash so you don’t have to worry about that short yet awkward period of time before you can continue your styling routine. And despite the barely-there feel, this hairspray is humidity-resistant, which comes in handy around these parts this time of year.
Essentially an anti-hairspray hairspray, this will help you forget about the Aqua Net days and get on with your life.
