After spending time styling your hair into the perfect hairdo, you want to make sure that your great look lasts and lasts. Unfortunately, weather conditions, sweat and the texture and heaviness of your hair can all lead to styles going flat or falling out of place throughout the day. Hairspray can help to combat these problems and give you hairstyles that look just as great hours after styling as they do when you walk out the door. At Walgreens, we have a huge selection of hairspray products and are sure to have the perfect solution to complete your styling routine.
Increase Your Style's Staying Power
Hairspray products are styling aids that keep hairstyles in place. A hairspray is a lightweight mist or spray that contains a fixative. The fixative is a slightly sticky material that stiffens the hair. Within a few seconds of application, hairspray dries, leaving hair better secured in place for styles that have much greater staying power.
How to Choose the Right Hold
The hold of a hairspray describes the strength of the fixative used in the formula. Products range from light hold to standard hold to super hold formulas. The greater the hold of a hairspray, the more staying power it adds to a hairstyle; however, stronger hold hairsprays can also leave the hair feeling crunchier and crispier than standard products. To choose the right hold, you'll need to consider the texture and length of your hair and the styling results that you're trying to obtain. Thick, coarse and long hair will require a higher degree of hold than fine, thin and shorter hairstyles. If you want your finished style to remain soft and silky, you should typically opt for the lightest hold possible to suit your hair type. For up-dos and styles that require more stiffness, choosing a product with a higher degree of hold is likely to give you the best results.
Other Hairspray Features
Hairspray products may have other features to increase their benefits or make them more suitable for some people. Unscented products are often ideal for people who are sensitive to smells or who don't want the scent of their styling products to conflict with their cologne or perfume. You can find hairspray formulas for specific hair care needs, such as increasing volume or providing sun protection.
