Best Hair Sprays To Lock Your Style In Place

Imagine, you spend hours ironing sections of your hair to finally nail the polished pony look before you step out of your home. Now, a lot can happen right from the commute till you reach your destination. Think errant hair starts showing up around your hairline and the nape of your neck along with unruly flyaways and bumps in your pony, urg. In other words, it only takes a few moments outside to wreak havoc and ruin your hairstyle. Does this mean a windy forecast spells a death sentence for your coif? Absolutely not. There’s hope.

Sure, the weather ain’t gonna do your tresses any favors but you can still sport a look that won’t budge. How? A little spritz fest with your hair’s new BFF – the humble hairspray – will help fight the downers and hold your style in place. And no, this one’s no fair weather friend; it promises to stay from sundown to sunrise.

Why Use Hair Spray?

  • Remember the last time you bookmarked a hairstyle on your social media feed and felt inspired enough to try it? Well, you tried, only to realise it wasn’t feasible to hold the style in place and pegged it as not-so-practical. Now, if you had a hairspray by your side, the verdict would have been more positive as the spray would have helped create and hold the experimental style with ease.
  • Baby hair around your hairline and tendrils at the back of your neck are not always cute. Especially when you are trying for a power look which could do without rebellious flyaways. Hair sprays work well at taming the tiniest of unruly strands so your hairstyle not just looks but stays magazine-perfect for the day.
  • If limp strands have always been a concern, volumising hair sprays are like a quick fix. They help boost the roots and make hair appear voluminous in a jiffy.
  • Is the usual sinner guilty for your bad hair days? Grease. Now, the greasiness could be because of excess oil build-up on the scalp. However, simply brushing your hair with a bit of hairspray sprayed on it can miraculously make your hair appear less oily or greasy just like that. Voila
