I've never really used hair spray. When I used to get my hair done weekly down South...every time I tried a new hairstylist I had to remind them that I didn't like hair spray in my hair. My hair is thin and, to me...I feel like hair spray makes it a bit too stiff. When it's that stiff...the only thing I can do is wash it if I want it to be soft again and not hard.
So yeah...I never really used hair spray.
I wanted to do my hair in a pompadour kinda thingy with the back down and some loose beachy waves. Since it was raining...I knew the beachy waves would last for all of 6 seconds once I stepped out of the house. I thought to myself...gosh...I wish I had some hair spray and I went to the beauty sample basket to see if I'd procured some along the way and hadn't tossed.
Then...for whatever reason...I decided to look in the guest bathroom because folks who visit seem to always leave product-y stuff and I simply put it under the sink so when they return...all they have to do is look and yeah...BINGO...MY STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!
And guess what I found? HAIR SPRAY!!!!!!!!! Some kinda Suave hair spray in a dark pink bottle. I'm thinking it was really old because the sprayer didn't work so I had to pour some in a small travel sprayer bottle. GO ME!
I sprayed some on the brush for the pompadour and sprayed it directly on the back.
IT WORKED! My hair looked like I wanted it to look when I got where I was going! GO ME!
But I feel like I'm going to have to wash it tomorrow to get it back right. LOL!
So...what do you think about hair spray? Do you use it? What kind do you use? I never wanted to use it because of the alcohol. Is that a factor for you?
