Product Review - Healthy Sexy Hair Hairspray

Hairspray is a tricky little bugger. And I've tried basically every drugstore brand known to man, all with less than exciting results. Too heavy, too sticky, too much alcohol, too much "hairspray smell", too firm, not firm enough. After exhausting those resources, I started stalking the shelves at Ulta, looking at the salon brands to find my ideal spray. I first narrowed my search by checking to make sure each product was cruelty-free. A MUST for me. From there, I tried and returned several brands. I always went into the store looking for SexyHair's Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Touchable "weightless hairspray". One of my favorite beauty gurus is always talking about it and I knew I had to give it a shot. The problem is, the amazing products are often the hardest to find, and this hairspray was always sold out. After 4-5 failed attempts, I finally tracked a bottle down. As soon as I got home I spritzed my hair, just to get a feel for the product. I was instantly impressed. It smells fresh and the fragrance is light. I loathe the hairsprays that cause you to run out of room after using because the overly-perfumey smell is too much. This just smells GOOD.
On top of the wonderful smell, it felt amazing. It was truly weightless, but added enough hold to keep a style going strong. My hair was still soft to the touch with lots of movement. I have to think that the addition of Argan oil to the soy formula is a huge factor in what puts this hairspray in a league of its own. In case you aren't familiar, Argan oil is the oil found in kernels of the Argan tree, which is found in Morocco. It has SO many benefits for hair. It adds moisture and helps prevent frizz, adds shine and protects hair from heat, breakage and UV damage. These benefits make it absolutely perfect for "daily" use. 

But the real test was with The Wand. When I add waves to my hair with my hair wand, I find that it adds a lot of body...but also a lot of poof/frizz.  So many hairsprays contain a lot of alcohol, which drys the hair and actually intensifies frizz, but I like to use a spray when "wanding" my hair, just to help the shape hold. After wearing my hair wavy for a full day, I was over the moon! The style held longer, felt better and looked sleeker than it EVER had before. I am not kidding. This stuff is legit.
It is about twice as much as a drugstore brand would be, but I promise you it is money WELL spent. If you're going to use hairspray, use this one. Your hair will thank you.
