OVERRATED VS. UNDERRATED: HAIRSPRAY EDITION

Everyone has different hair problems. Some deal with oily hair, some dry hair, some damaged hair, or some grey hairs (yikes). It’s important to find the products that works best for YOU rather than whatever the “it” product is at the moment, but of course the only way to find that is through experimentation! After years of trial and error, I found my go-to hairsprays that I’ve become very loyal to. Before I give my picks for most overrated and underrated hairspray, I want to share what I look for in my hairspray so you can evaluate whether these products are what you’re looking for. First off, I would describe my hair type as long, thick, and oily (and by oily I mean vs. having dry hair). I mainly use hairspray for the purpose of frizz-ease. I like to wear my hair with my natural waves, and hairspray is a great way to calm my hair down and let me wear it naturally without doing much work. It’s an easy, effortless look in which hairspray plays a large roll in. That being said, it’s an added bonus when a hairspray is multi-purposeful and adds liftshine, and holds my hair in place, so when I try out different products I look for one that gives me these benefits as well! Here are my picks my most overrated and underrated hairsprays: 

OVERRATED: L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray

It’s all over every social media outlet with celebrities like Kim Kardashian claiming they love it, but I don’t know if L'Oreal Paris is just shoving out millions of bucks towards product placement or what, but I am NOT a fan of L'Oreal’s Elnett. I started seeing all these ads and magazine articles about this new miracle hairspray that’s supposed to be “the best kept secret for gorgeous hair” so I had to see what all the hype was out. I must say that I was severely disappointed. From the awful old school hairspray smell to the actual hold, it didn’t live up to my expectations. Also, one of the promises is that it’s “so fine, it disappears at the stroke of a brush” in which I’m calling BS! It makes my hair feel tangled, rough, and extremely dry. Don’t believe me? Go ahead and try it on your own, but be ready to shove out 14 bucks for a drugstore product. If you want to try this product out on your own, I recommend getting it at Amazon for half the cost

UNDERRATED: Garnier Fructis Flexible Control Anti-Humidity Aerosol Hairspray

LOVE IT! This is a MUST HAVE and might I add super affordable hairspray. Like I said above, this hairspray really does reduce my frizz (one less product I have to buy woo), but I also love that it doesn’t weigh down my hair. It gives me everything I am looking for in a hairspray for an unbeatable price. I mean, can you really go wrong with a product you can get for under 4 bucks at CVS

UNDERRATED: Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray For Volume, Hold, and Shine 

This is the first product I’ve tried from the Oscar Blandi line, and I’m officially obsessed. What makes it so great is the ingredients used in it including sugar creating it anti-static effect. I LOVE using this hairspray after I straighten my hair to add just a little lift at the root, especially at the crown on my head. Some might not like the distinct honeysuckle scent of the product, but I happen to like it and get tons of compliments for it. The downfall? I would say the price. It is pricier than your average hairspray, but I do love that it’s a unisex product that men can use as well, so think of it as half the price? There are all different sizes of this hairspray too which makes it great for travel or to just throw in your purse/clutch. You can get this and other great products apart of the Oscar Blandi line (like dry shampoo!) and Sephora.

What’s YOUR favorite hairspray?
