Is there a CG hairspray?

I don't want to give up hairspray lol.
as of 6/12/11.

COwash- Suave Juicy Apple.
Rinse-out- VO5 Passion Fruit Moisture Milks.

Recovering from a bad glue-in extension job.
So, here is the deal with hairspray:
You can get a hairspray without silicones. However most hairsprays have drying alcohols in them. You are trying to moisturize your hair and drying alcohols work against that goal. The hairsprays that don't have drying alcohols take longer to dry. The quick drying is what most people like about hairsprays in the first place.
The hairspray I have is Ion finishing spritz from sally's. I hate the smell (almond/cherry I think). It does take a long time to dry. I only use this occasionally.

Polyquat 22 may be hard to remove if you cowash exclusively.

I just ordered this yesterday from Sally's (yay 25% off coupon!). Ion - Anti-Frizz Solutions - Ion Gel Styling Mist

It's a spray gel so there's no alcohol like a typical hair spray. The ingredients look pretty good, and CG: WATER ,VP/VA COPOLYMER ,GLYCERIN ,PROPYLENE GLYCOL ,PPG-26-BUTETH-26 ,PANTHENOL ,PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL ,CARBOMER ,TRIETHANOLAMINE ,FRAGRANCE ,CITRIC ACID ,IODOPROPYNYL BUTYLCARBAMATE ,METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE ,BUTYLENE GLYCOL ,ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE ,HEDYCHIUM CORONARIUM ROOT EXTRACT ,ROSMARINUS OFFICINALIS (ROSEMARY) LEAF E ,CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA (MATRICARIA) FLOWER ,SALVIA OFFICINALIS (SAGE) LEAF EXTRACT ,URTICA DIOICA (NETTLE) EXTRACT ,BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPIONAL

I can't wait to try it and report back My hair does seem to get weighed down easily if I use too much gel... but not enough and I get frizz and not much definition. So a spray gel sounds like it might be ideal for me. Suave also has a new spray gel out for curly hair, but I haven't found it in the store yet.

Suave: Professional Quality Products for the Entire Family

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), VP/VA Copolymer, PVP, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Acrylates/Beheneth-25 Methacrylate Copolymer, Fragrance (Parfum) , Aminomethyl Propanol, DMDM Hydantoin, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylisothiazolinone

I'm just not ready to give up my Sebastian Shaper Plus lol.
as of 6/12/11.

COwash- Suave Juicy Apple.
Rinse-out- VO5 Passion Fruit Moisture Milks.

Recovering from a bad glue-in extension job.
I use the Garnier Volumizing HS as a finisher on days that I know are going to be really long or windy. It does contain alcohol which is against strict CG rules, but I make sure my hair is always well moisturized, so that's not an issue for me personally. And it smells so good!
Hairtype: 3a/b, normal elasticity, low porosity, medium thick & fine- my hair can't get enough protein!

*****HG Routine*****
Cleanse: Care Cure Conditioner
LI: Biolage Conditioning Balm (not very often used anymore, really)
Styling: Eco Style Protein Gel and a diffuser (pixiecurl method).


So no one here flips their soaking wet hair over after they get out of the shower & hairsprays the hell out of it? I feel so 80s right now lol.

My wave pattern is very elongated so that means that my bangs have no curl because I keep them short. As a result, I round brush or clip them and then (perhaps out of habit) I spray them lightly once dry.

I use, and like, Alba Botanica hair spray. It is CG and cheap.

This one:

Personally I feel like hairspray gives a stickier harder hold than my favorite gels, but different strokes for different folks.

Trying to get back my 3a

Old Way: (AWESOME for years!!)
regular ol' poos and condtioner/Ouidad BB/Bain de Terre Recovery Complex/mousse/curling spray/Sebastian Texturizer (old formula) Gel/ scrunch WHILE diffusing ‘til dry
then Ouidad SM

New Way: (curls ruined with too much coloring & hi-lites)... TBD...
Tried DEVA Styling... NO LUCK. Currently using DEVA no poo & One Condition with old regimen minus the ‘cone serum, but not working because of new Sebastian formula... Boo!!

I'm a born and bred Jersey girl so I know how important hair spray is!!!! I recently gave up using traditional spray because of the alchohols that were in them...I feel like they were contributing to my dry scalp. But I still needed some hold. I did a search on the 'Net and discovered Creo Care. They have a "shine spray" that is free of alcohol, silicones,petrochemicals, and is not tested on animals. It also helps protect hair from UV rays (very important if you color your hair like I do!!). It is on the pricey side ($21) but I've been using it for a week now and I really like it a lot. It has a nice smell, it doesn't seem to be drying my hair out nor does it leave my hair "crunchy". If you've got the money, I'd definitely recommend trying it!
The Ion is Very slow to try - making hair limper - it has a low hold. First it goes on stiff - then it softens up to a hold of a strong mouse, IMO.

I just got the Giovanni Spritz - last night I tried it ona spot - and it has firm hold. It tries fast. I'm going to try it today - and will check back either tonight or tomorrow. But so far - it seems to do what a hairspray should do.

Ohhhh - I just saw the above post - I think I'm goin to order the Creo Care next payday - I just saw that the Creo Care has a U V protectant! How is the hold, natural, medium or firm?

I use Tresemme Naturals hair spray on mine when I need it. I haven't looked but it probably has alcohols in it. I haven't experienced hair any drier than normal since I started using it, but then again I'm a moisturizing fiend.
