Default So what are your favorite hairsprays?

I am in a constant search for the ideal hairspray, which is defined as such:

1. Low build-up because I don't shampoo
2. Medium to firm hold
3. No animal ingredients (silk, honey, etc)
4. Smells decent
5. Quick drying
6. Did I mention low build-up?
7. No cones
8. Doesn't make my hair feel like straw
9. Preferably no parabens

The best I've found is Tigi Curls Rock Hairspray, which does have a semi-soluble cone in it, but it doesn't dry my hair out to no end. I wish it volumized a bit more, however, as my hair is *really* fine and my curls like to fall away into nothingness if they don't have support.

So what sprays have you all have luck with?

I use Suaves natural hairspray..been using it 4 years. its the max hold .gives my curls a boost of volume and holds my hair all day long under bad weather, plus i love the smell. never had a issue with drying out my hair cuz i dont need alot.

I love my Suave maximum hold (#10). It's in a big aerosol can. I love it cuz it fluffs up my style w/o making it sticky - yet it holds awesome! I can reapply it during the day & it doesn't build up.

It has everything as far as I'm concerned

I love the L.A. Naturals hair spray! It starts off crunchy, a bit, but after a while my hair ends up being soft and it holds! I don't think it's great for getting volume thought with all the oils in it.

I think I'm going to give the Giovanni a go, as I know it's vegan and paraben free. I should also take a look at the Pureology ones as well, but oy they're expensive. :P

Thanks so much for all the feedback!

Another possibility would be to use a spray gel, like Herbal Essences Set Me Up spray.
