Default CG hairspray?

Is there any hairspray that's CG? I usually use CG curl creams without gel - maybe I should just use gel on top instead. What do you think?

I tried Tweak (Jonathan Torch) and didn't like it.

I'm a gel person and didn't really do hair sprays even pre-CG, so I can't speak from personal experience. But... If you want a drugstore option, L'Oreal has an alcohol free, strong hold hairspray in their Everstyle line.

As far as I know, all hair sprays contain drying alcohols, which means they are not CG friendly.

Geek_Chic - thanks very much! I will look into that.

Rimi, that's what I thought - I appreciate your input. I'm sort of back and forth about being totally CG. I'm still not sure how much I buy into the whole idea - for my hair anyway.

I'm sort of in love with the Tresemme Climate Control Finishing Spray. The alcohols don't bother my hair at all, and it's silicone-free.
