Hair spray is a hairstyling staple, whether you’re using it to add volume and texture or to keep an updo in place. But how much do you know about this must have hair product? Should you just spray it on top of your hair or can you also apply it all the way to the hair roots? Which of the many hair sprays should you use for different purposes? Let’s try to solve all those questions here.
As you may know, hairsprays come in different types and strengths to suit each type of hair. For the desired result, be sure to read the description of the product package before purchasing any. For example, if you are looking for volume, do not go for the curling hairspray.
When apply hairspray, keep the nozzle far away from your hair as pointing the nozzle too close will get the hair strands sticking together, the optimal distance is at least 30cm away from your hair. You can run your fingers through the hair while spraying so that the liquid can reach all over.
If you’re looking to create a super voluminous hair, just loading up on hairspray is not enough. First of all, you need to use a hair-thickening shampoo and conditioner to create a foundation. After that, spray a volumizing hairspray in between layers of hair, and a few pumps on the roots. Follow the right steps then your hair will look full and voluminous throughout the night and won’t go all sleek and boring.
Hairspray is great for locking up your curls. Whether you opt for putting heated rollers into your hair, use a curling iron or pull the hair ends through a flat iron, spritz the hair spray liberally over your hair beforehand. The spray can enhance the result and give your hair a lot of hold and bounce. You can apply some more hair spray to give your hairdo hold after styling.
Understand your hair type before using hairspray. If you have oily hair, avoid using hairspray that will add shine to your hair, as you do not want any more gloss. As hairsprays contain alcohol, if you have a sensitive scalp, make sure you only apply hairspray on strands of hair and stray away from the scalp.
