Question Need More Hold

Does anyone here use hairspray? I'm looking for one that is CG friendly? Thanks

I don't think many people on here use hairspray. It is quite drying on the hair and makes my hair crispy feeling and I can't scrunch that out. Plus, even "extreme" hold ones don't work as well as gel or mousse for me.

Giovanni's LA Hold is strong hold hair spray that is CG. You can find it at Target or Ulta.

I think the reason people believe that hairsprays in general 'aren't CG' is because they have such a high alcohol content which will dry out your hair and cause damage.

Ok, I'll step up.

I am an old school Jersey girl from the '80's early '90's. I have always used hairspray. I just can't give the stuff up. I use a lot less now than I did, but hairspray is a must for me still. I just don't feel complete without it.

I use TRESemme Smooth Frizz Shield Finishing Spray. It has blue writing on it. It's light and lets my curls seperate so my hair moves and is touchably soft. I don't need much, but I do like that I can ward off the frizzies and I get my spray fix.

That is really my only non-cg friendly product I use every day. I don't see much build up left on my hair and when I either water wash or co-wash, it all seems to come out.

I will also use hairspray. I really like Joico ICE shaping hair finisher spray. Comes in a huge can and smells really nice. It also has a 'soft' hold-my hair does not look like a helmet. I do not use it daily but when I really want my hair to 'stay' I will use it. I also have a can of Redken Quick Dry but I do not use that one as much because I love the smell of the other one much better. I use so many products that provide my hair a lot of moisture I am not worried about the alcohol in the hair spray.

I use hairspray too, and I'm pretty sure it's not CG LOL. Basically I use it in the afternoon after I've SOTC'd. I use Herbal Essence "Set Me Up." Basically I use it on my roots and spray a little onto curls to hold them a little longer, then scrunch it in and it helps my curls spring up.

I'm not CG, so here are the ingredients... if I remember right the "peg" means it's ok right?


Ingredients:

Ingredients: water, dimethyl ether, sd alcohol 40, va/crotonates/vinyl neodecanoate copolymer, acrylates copolymer, bambusa vulgaris leaf/stem extract, cereus grandiflorus (cactus) flower extract, fragrance, propylene glycol, aminomethyl propanol, glycereth-7 triacetate, ammonium benzoate, peg-8 dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane, cyclohexamine, acetamide mea.
